This Bud's For You: The Christian And The Use Of Alcohol - Aug 19, 1991

“Spare the rod and spoil the child.” It’s an old saying and like most things old, it has been neglected of late. But there is the ring of truth about it. If you spare the rod, you will indeed spoil your child. This is the clear testimony of Holy Scripture and of centuries of human exp ... More

Almost a generation ago, when the computer revolution had just begun, the pioneers in the field coined a brand-new word.
