Internet Porn! Do you Protect Your Child?!?!

Do YOU allow your child, grandchild, etc to have unfiltered access to the internet? If so, you are in BIG trouble with a HOLY GOD and will be thrown in hell if you do not train up your child as the Holy Bible commands! Take the unfiltered internet access AWAY including CELL PHONE INTERNET ACCESS!

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

Proverbs  23:13 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.

Proverbs 29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.
