Default Re: A quote on obedience from an Ezzo teaching video

I wish I could quote, but it's tough on my phone.

To saturnfire: I do want to teach my children that if they love God they will obey him. But not because they are children. And not that obedience to God = obedience to every little thing mom and dad say. Just like the verse that was quoted about obedience being about love.

To Joyanne: when I was a kid, the word obedience was taught to mean obeying your parents and you will be obeying God. So with that in mind, the lyrics are really untrue and harmful. Obey your parents is basically THE WAY kids follow and exemplify a life in God. Like someone else said, nevermind the fruit of the Spirit. It is yet another example in our culture of how all we want of kids is for them to be well-behaved. That is the most important "virtue" on our culture.

But if you teach the proper meaning of obedience, Joyanne, like you explained then that is a beautiful and rare thing.
