Yes, it is amazing that the founding pastor could say this and get away with it without being challenged:

"When you discipline, this verse indicates, as others do, that you want to do it so it wounds. Now, when you say 'wounds,' it doesn't mean that you have a bloody mess on your hands necessarily. It doesn't mean that you have a child 'wounding' like he has a broken leg."

McCotter added in his taped sermon that this means you have been severe enough that the child's attitude at that point has been reversed.

"And he may, and often will be, black and blue," McCotter continued. "My children have been many times. And it cleans evil from them.”


Even more amazing that current leadership never corrected such awful teaching, or any other awful McCotter teaching.

Even more amazing that they still speak so highly of him.

By that logic, no one should be discussing the Reformation or the great awakening. No one should be reading about Hudson Taylor or Corrie ten Boom.

It’s a false statement to say people are rehashing things from 1970’s.  My kids were born in 2003 and 2005 and we were taught by gcc to abuse our kids. Actually more than that we were pressured to abuse our kids and we were rebuked when we wouldn’t. And no I am not calling spanking abuse. I am saying we were told to hit out kids across their face and to spank them until they bleed and to not stop even when they were teenagers. Thankfully my kids are healing from the trauma of being born into a cult.

Cult Proof, that remark about 1978 may have been intended as a dig at those of us who've written about our experiences back in the 70's. We write about those things because many of the same problems we faced in our GC churches back then (back before it was even called GC) are still happening.
