    Nic, I would encourage you to type Michael Pearl into the search box at the top of this blog and check out the many links I have provided for information about your concerns as well as many related articles regarding the Pearls and their teaching.

    That is not his response to those greatly grieved over Lydia’s death. That is his response to the people seeking to place the blame for for that heinous crime on him.

    I would love to see an ACCURATE and UNBIASED report on Michael Pearl stating the facts. Completely filtered of any doctrinal point of view (or lack thereof) or emotions.

    Mr. Bowers,

    First of all, I would really hate to know anyone devoid of an emotional response to the beating death of a precious little child. And I am not sure what something looks like if it written free of any theological perspective. How is that even possible.

    I would encourage you to read and research the many, many resources I have provided as well as the many links.

    I never quite understand why anyone would want to defend this man or his practices. Amazing.

    I’m a Daddy of 10 kids. We have a blast together. We ride horses, shoot coyotes, and do crazy stuff like putting a movie camera on a kite with half a mile of string. My kids love me like their best friend, and I feel the same about them. Our home is fun, peaceful and me and my wife never fight. All the credit goes to Jesus Christ and Mike Pearl who helped me understand the Scriptures on raising a family, including spanking.

    I’m always a bit suspicious of anyone who says that their spouse and they never fight. My first reaction is that the husband has so stiffled disagreement by his wife –“I’m the boss and what I say goes so don’t even think of arguing with me” — that she dare not speak up. NO ONE gets along so perfectly that they never have a disagreement. Such a relationship saddens and angers me. Sad for the wife, angry at the husband.

    I may be overreacting, but I smell extreme patriarchy with shades of Vision Forum thrown in for good measure.

    About the only thing I “like” so far in what I’ve seen of your website is that you suggest people ought to read more about Michael Pearl. And if you only see Jesus as a sort of all embracing “gentle shepherd” then you’re ignoring more than half of the Scriptures. God (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) MUST be understood as adversarial. Whole nations were disposed of in Old Testament accounts. Nine kings and their peoples were wiped out just so God’s people could live where God wanted them to live. Even God’s own people were battered and bruised for God to further His own purposes, which, by the way, were for the ultimate good of His faithful followers and for His own glory. Seems to me that Michael Pearl is way more on the mark than you are. And I have to ask myself, what is the spirit behind someone who will invest all the work and time to create a website that only exists to be AGAINST someone who is ostensibly serving the Lord.

    To Mr. Leedy:
    1. Redemptive history is certainly not adversarial.While Yahweh did destroy large groups of people it was much more than, “so God’s people could live where God wanted them to.” That would make his judgment very capricious, don’t you think? His judgment was against the gross sin of these people groups.
    2. As I have previously suggested, when individuals resort to ad homineum abusive arguments (:what is the spirit behind someone”) it’s often because they are unable to formulate well reasoned arguments.
