    I love the appellation “gutter theology”! That is the best description yet for the Pearls’ teachings.
    Thanks, once again.

    Linda….Your link to Samuel Martin’s new series “Who are the Christian advocates of corporal punishment (spanking) of children? – part 1” doesn’t exist (according to the response I get when I click on this link). Just thought I’d let you know there is a kink somewhere.
