Michael Pearl is getting a lot of media attention lately in the wake of the controversy fueled by the discovery of his child training book, “To Train Up a Child” in the home of yet another couple accused of killing their daughter by the excessive use of punitive discipline.
Pearl defended TTUAC to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, and he was also interviewed on HLN last week.
Writing an official statement for No Greater Joy Ministries’ Facebook page, Michael Pearl vowed to redouble NGJs efforts in light of the Hana Williams tragedy.
In a calculated and appallingly callous move, greedy Michael Pearl is taking “pre-orders” for his newest book, “Training Your Children To Be Strong in Spirit.” The timing of NGJ’s release of Strong in Spirit capitalizes on the increased web traffic garnered from the media storm surrounding Pearl’s unabashed advocacy of dangerous child-rearing practices such as utilizing a piece of ¼-inch plumbing supply line to hit children as young as six-months old as a form of “biblical chastisement.”
From the NGJ product description:
This is not a time for weak spirits. Some call it intestinal fortitude. I call it guts — spiritual guts. The timid and afraid will fall victim to their appetites and not have the moral earnestness to be men and women of character. The greatest gift you can give your children is to train them to be strong in spirit, courageous, unbending in the face of adversity and temptation.
Yes – Michael Pearl knows something about “guts” – though I would call it “All The Gall.”I’ve said before, It’s About MONEY – NGJ Ministries is no exception …
