  • Peter G Kimble on Matthew 19:14
    I am glad to have come across this explanation. I awoke this morning with this verse in my mind. For a long time, on and off, it has been one of the things in the Bible that I couldn't quite grasp. It sounded to me like God wanted children to suffer. Also I believe this is one of the interpretations fanatic Atheists, or anti theists, use. Itís not the children God wants to suffer, but itís also not great suffering for our attention to perhaps prayer, or quiet, to broken by the noise of children. For how we treat the children, we also are treating our Lord Jesus. My thanks for providing these notes. Also verse 14 is brought into better understanding for me when I first contemplate verse 13. The disciples, who were still learning the path of Jesus and enlightenment, were the ones who rebuked the children. It was Jesus who said to bring them to Him. My thanks to you for providing this website. Your brother in Christ, Peter G Kimble.
