An 18 month old has a simple vocabulary. He looked at you because he was afraid that if he touched them there would be consequence/a spanking? I dont understand. The fact that he went anyway was because he was CURIOUS ... which is a natural (not sinful thing) abou the interesting new object. If that is a sin, for an 18 month old, then we are alll doomed. Seriously, perhaps a course in child psychology is warranted here.
This is proof and evidence of the inborn sin nature. Sure the little tot was curious. That is the excuse that all sinners will probably try out on God at the White Throne Judgement. I don't believe that any babies will be cast into Hell, but the principle of inborn sin nature is still evidenced by a rebellious-selfish sin nature than has been born into us since the day Adam sinned. Spanking is not for so for some perverted sadistic joy. It is not even for punishment. It is for learning. God handles His own the same way.
12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
