Willfully hurting anyone is not a good thing. Nor is it a Christian thing. As for being in hell because of it, that depends on whether or not the person doing the hurting asked for forgiveness.

Is this the gospel of not hitting your parents? Well, i think you need more Jesus in that formula for salvation. All of Jesus to be honest.

Y'all are answering a comment that is more than a decade old. And back when it was posted, apparently nobody saw fit to reply to it. And the one who posted it is no longer even a member of the forum.

You're 11 years too late. This post is from 2009 and the OP isn't even a member any longer.

Thank you for the info. When I came to this Forum earlier, this Thread was on the page. Next time I will check the date of the Thread before commenting. Still, it was a question worth responding to simply because of the wrong assertion.

@stepbystep it took me quite a while to figure this all out, I did the same thing a lot because they do look like they are alive threads, but should be closed down. Stick around you will be blest and there are many more Forums and threads to see. God bless you!

Thanks be to God for your correction. This thread is not old at all if you compare it with the book this whole forum is all about (i.e. The Holy Bible). We all benefit from every correction even to things that happened Millenia ago. Besides, it is important to please God, not people.

You do not have to check the date of threads in the future as that does not offend anybody, let alone the fact that nobody has the right to restrict your freedom to do good. It is a good idea to bring old threads back to life, especially when it is beneficial to discuss the ideas in them again today (ideas are timeless).

In response to this thread, God sometimes tells us through his prophets not to obey our parents if they don't obey him themselves and actually get in the way of true faith in God. God tells us to leave them to seek the Kingdom of Heaven.

Matthew 10:37-39 (WEB)

37 He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me isn’t worthy of me. 38 He who doesn’t take his cross and follow after me isn’t worthy of me. 39 He who seeks his life will lose it; and he who loses his life for my sake will find it.

Matthew 10:34-37 (WEB)

34 “Don’t think that I came to send peace on the earth. I didn’t come to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I came to set a man at odds against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 A man’s foes will be those of his own household.Micah 7:6 37 He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me isn’t worthy of me.

Luke 14:33 (WEB)

33 So therefore whoever of you who doesn’t renounce all that he has, he can’t be my disciple.

Matthew 19:5 (WEB)

5 and said, ‘For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh?’Genesis 2:24

On the other hand, when parents are good believers and followers of the Lord, you must honor your parents (not obey) lest you be put to death otherwise:

Matthew 15:4 (WEB)

4 For God commanded, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 5:16 and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.’Exodus 21:17; Leviticus 20:9

Only true children (people who have not reached puberty) are commanded to obey their parents without resistance because they have not developed enough yet to be able to follow the right path of Jesus Christ and resist the pitfalls of Satan. As such, they are blessed by God through their parents and must always obey them as such until reaching adulthood.

God gave believers wisdom to discern good from evil and know when and where to apply the teachings of the Holy Bible. That is in fact the whole point of following God; that is to manifest good in the world and benefit everyone in it. Do not misapply the teachings of the Holy Bible. Only do what is good and holy instead.

Godspeed
