I couldn't believe what I was reading! I had to stop and get off that site. How aweful that someone would twist the words of the Bible in that manner. Shame on them! It sound more like a cult!!!! That is soooo infuriating. I will be praying hard for those couples that actually practice this nonsense. They need God more than ever!

The Bible tells parents to discipline their children and says that God disciplines his children. Nowhere have I ever seen it say that it is ok for a husband to discipline his wife, especially physically! A rebuke for sinful behavior, I can understand. Husbands and wives should gently, but firmly do that for each other. But SPANKING??? That's just repugnant.

That's really the rub, isn't it? That they are taking scripture and using it to basically justify beating one's wife into submission. Remarkably sad.

i really worry for the children, If a man can do this to his wife what will he do to his children and particularily to teenage daughters.

I agree, the more I read the more infuriated I got. Not only that women actually allow that to happen but because they are mis-using the Bible to justify it.

Wow! I have (thankfully) never heard of such a thing! I have no doubt in my mind that this is NOT what God intended for a marriage relationship. I couldn't stop reading- call it morbid fascination. I just sit here dumbfounded yet... unable to believe there are people that live like this. Yikes!

Carta- I agree, I wasn't thinking about doing this or anything. I actually think it is pretty ridiculous. I was just curious about other people thoughts on it:)

Honestly, I couldn't even read it. I don't know where in the bible it says "husbands, though shalt be ok with hurting your wives". Don't use scripture to taint the vows of a couple. This is crazy.

Okay, Kyle, read the intro, and I am shocked! Husbands can spank their wives for reckless driving, disobeying doctors orders? The 4 Ds, disrespect, disobedience, dishonesty and danger? As Christian women, we should already be obeying these tenets as those of holy Christian women! But disobeying doctors orders? If I obeyed every doctors' orders I have had over the last 60 years, I would be overdosed and dead! My mother was ordered by her doctor to abort me; she would die, I would be blind, mentally handicapped, etc. etc. Would my father 'discipline' her for NOT following that order?

I don't know how far you read on that site, but at the very bottom, before you went in to the different categories, it was talking about eroticism with spanking. I have a feeling there is a lot of that going on, and I would stay away!

You know what the Bible says, and I would hope you are listening, without being spanked ;)

i think its probably a hoax. My husband and i both agree that their is no indication in the bible that this would be acceptable in a marriage. Domestic violence is an unacceptable practice and a huge problem i have a friend who's complete face reconstruction is teastament to this.
