It is something that is rooted in the nature of every human being. We see it across the animal kingdom all animals discipline their young they have to if the animals are going to survive. So it stands to reason that if it is wise, good and according to nature, God is going to agree with it because he’s pretty smart too.

    Seriously? Look at the extreme ego of this man…daring to call the One who created him “pretty smart” and comparing the intelligence of The Creator to the created. How does this man sleep at night.
