Discussion for Exodus 15:23

  • Ernest Matthews on Exodus 15:23
    I am amazed how there are so few opportunities being used to follow Gods requests in Deuteronomy Chapter 6 : 6/9 which emphersize that we must teach the Laws and Commandments to our children. I understand only a few people specifically obey this command from God and I am most disappointed about mankind's failure to obey this Law. I wish our children could be blessed with this teaching in every country so they can make an informed choice before they DO any thing WRONG in the sight of God.
