The Pearls are asking their followers to go to iTunes and leave positive ratings and reviews for their shows.  We should probably go help balance that out.  If you have iTunes, you can rate the podcasts. ( I believe you have to be in iTunes to do this)   To the right of where it shows the stars in iTunes, there are five black stars. Click there to rate it. You’ll be prompted to sign into iTunes and then you can leave a review.

    There is a sermon entitled “Salvation, Plain and Simple” in which Mr. Pearl talks about being stalked by his father and beaten for using a paintbrush without permission. He states that he used it and then hid it. He then attempted to pretend to find it when his father quizzed him about it. His father caught him lying and beat him even though the brush was returned, which is the pattern advocated in TTUAC — to give lickings even if the child obeys after the fact.

    Several other incidents are mentioned as well. It gives the impression that Mr. Pearl’s “biblical chastisement” philosophy is not really drawn from Proverbs or the Bible in general, but in part from an extremely harsh upbringing which is in direct contrast to the precepts of the Lord Jesus.

    But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.

    He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.

    And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.

    Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

    For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

    Matt. 21:28-32

      Thank you. That is very interesting. Another example of how abuse continues through the generations.
