regarding Afzal Iqbal's old post. The bible provides guidance on how to raise out children. sorry I don't have the passage but that is how the rest of your children should be raised.

well i have a question regarding this Luke 2:23, Ex 13:12, Nu 18:15. God said all first born children is presented to the Lord for dedication. If a person has 3 sons and rest 2 will not represent to the house of the Lord. Pls explain what to do rest 2nd & 3rd born children according to the Laws. Afzal Iqbal from Pakistan.
