I am so happy to see that World Magazine is recognizing the connection between the teachings of Michael and Debi Pearl and the death of little Lydia Schatz. It is so encouraging to see that a well-respected evangelical publication has rightly discerned their teachings and is making sure that parents are warned.
Tulip Girl’s updated list on links to articles about the death of Lydia Schatz and the Pearl connection it is also encouraging to see how this list has grown over the weekend. I pray that more and more individuals and groups will be willing to stand among those who see this for the horror that it is.
It is also important that we make it very clear that this isn’t about “spanking,” it is about child abuse.
