We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Damn, beaten to death and now eternal hell. A theist life can be rough.

Police in Las Vegas say Roderick Arrington, Jr., was beaten to death by his parents in late November.

Police in Las Vegas allege that a 7-year-old boy was beaten to death by his parents after failing to read the Bible or do his homework.

Roderick "RJ" Arrington Jr., was admitted to an area hospital on Nov. 29 because he was unresponsive, according to the Las Vegas Sun. Personnel there called officers to the scene after they observed severe bruising and brain swelling, according to a police report. The boy died the following afternoon.

Police arrested the boy's mother, Dina Palmer, 27, and stepfather, Markiece Palmer, 34, and charged them with the murder of the boy. Investigators said that Palmer "stood by and let her husband" shake and beat the boy to death.

Rachel Armstrong Accused Of Beating Grandmother Angela Armstrong Whom She Thought Was Possessed

The Huffington Post | By David Moye

A woman who allegedly stomped her 92-year-old grandmother because she feared the old woman was possessed by a demon may face stiff penalties now that the victim has died.

Angela Armstrong died Monday at a hospital in St. Louis County, Mo. following the Nov. 21 attack by her granddaughter Rachel Armstrong, KSOK-TV reported. The younger woman threw her grandmother down the stairs before stomping her, which left Angela with broken arms and eight cracked ribs.

The granddaughter confessed, police said, and was charged with first-degree elder abuse. The grandmother's death has authorities considering stiffer charges though, STLToday.com reported.

At the time of the attack, Rachel Armstrong, a nurse by trade, told police she thought her grandmother was a demon and tried to beat it out of her before tucking her in bed, KMOV-TV reported.

The hits keep coming.

Awful, the full details are even worse that the headline and the death of a young boy.

the adults are horrible human beings but how often do you have to hear this type of advice before you start treating your children and other humans as chattel

“When Joseph heard that Archelaus was reigning in Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. Having been warned in a dream, he withdrew to the district of Galilee, and he went and lived in a town called Nazareth.” (Matthew 2:22-23a NIV)

A lot of people think living an obedient life of faith means putting your mind in neutral and letting God direct you wherever he wants, as if you are a robot. That’s not it at all.

The Bible says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind” (Luke 10:27a NIV). You’ve got to engage your brain with God and live out the kind of life he has for you to live.

This is what Joseph did when he obeyed God’s command to move back to Israel. Joseph heard that Herod’s son was reigning in Judea, so he was afraid to go there. “Having been warned in a dream, he withdrew to the district of Galilee, and he went and lived in a town called Nazareth” (Matthew 2:23 NIV).

Nazareth is where the Bible prophesied that Jesus was going to live, so Joseph was exactly in the center of God’s will. And he got there by looking at the situation — the politics, Herod’s son as ruler — and he realized it wasn’t a safe place to be and engaged his mind with God to make the right decision.

So where should we get God’s command for our lives? We may not have angels showing up to guide us, but we do have hundreds and hundreds of pages of God’s Word. To live a life of obedience, we need to get to know what God has said to us.

Jesus talked about this in Matthew 7:24: “So then, anyone who hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock” (TEV).

We have God’s Word to help us live out a relationship with him. It’s not a dry book of directions. It is God’s love letter to us, a Father’s letter of instruction to show us how to live the kind of life he wants to give us.

Talk About It

  • How often do you read God’s Word and then obey it without question?
  • As you read God’s Word today, I encourage you to pray Psalm 119:34: “Give me insight so I can do what you tell me — my whole life one long, obedient response” (MSG).
