SPANKING CHILDREN FOR
IS OF GOD
AND IS LEGAL
IN THE STATE OF ARKANSAS
by Tony Alamo
Forty-eight years ago, in 1964, Susie and I were called by GOD into the ministry full time. I became aware of the LORD through a very supernatural experience. Many other supernatural visions, dreams, signs, and wonders followed, including the visions that GOD gave Sue and me for us to be married. Sue had been supernaturally saved twenty-five years before me, and I felt tremendously inadequate to be her husband before the supernatural vision GOD gave for us to be married. Susie had long blonde hair, but the morning that I had the vision of our being married, she had short hair. In the vision, I walked into the living room. She was awake and lying down, wearing a velour sweatshirt and pants. I walked in quickly, knelt down, and kissed her on the lips. During the vision, I was sound asleep and pushed myself up. This woke me up, but I still could see the vision. There were two golden pipes in my heart reaching up to Heaven. In the one golden pipe on the right side, I could hear my heart saying to GOD, “No, LORD, she’s twenty-five years older in the LORD than me. She is much smarter than me, and she knows the Bible, and I don’t.” GOD answered me down the pipe on the left side into my heart, saying, “That’s good for your ego.” I said to the LORD, “She knows YOU really well, and I don’t, and she knows the Bible, and I don’t.” Then hundreds and thousands of questions started coming out of my heart into the golden pipe and up to Heaven to the LORD. It was so fast that I couldn’t even tell what the questions were. They were like water coming out of a fire hose. Down the other pipe came the answers. They were coming so fast that I couldn’t figure out what they were, but they filled up my heart with all the knowledge that GOD was sending unto me. I was then wide awake, and thick rings like smoke, which were the SPIRIT, came around me, saying, “It’s true. It’s true. It’s true,” several times. The first part of the vision was in really vivid color; then it turned black and white. It was a black background with a white outline of our faces, which looked like white-hot wrought iron. It began shimmering, then made a noise similar to a phone left off the hook, only faster, with a piercing sound. Then the vision came toward me and entered into my mind and chest area. It has stayed there all of these years.
All night, before my vision, Susie had a vision of her and me walking through an arbor. She said there were big red roses all around the arbor, with drops of dew on the roses. She said she was wearing a wedding dress and described it to me, and she said I was wearing a tuxedo. In the vision, she said I weighed around two hundred pounds, but at that time, I actually weighed about one hundred and sixty-five pounds.
We had won several people to the LORD, and Susie was fixing the hair of one of the sisters when I went into the kitchen. Susie had short hair. She had cut it that morning before I had that vision. During her vision, she said she was crying out to the LORD, saying, “No, LORD. He is too young in the LORD. I’ve lived a Christian life for twenty-five years, LORD, and I don’t want to backslide and lose my salvation now.” Again, “He’s too young in the LORD.” The LORD had answered her back and said, “Yes, that is true, but he is strong.”
I didn’t know that I was strong in the LORD, or that I ever would be at that point, but as of this date, the world government has taken me into the courtroom on fifty-five different cases. I have fought them all, and I am ready to fight to the death. I don’t know anybody else that is that strong, Spiritually or unspiritually. I have lost consciousness of this because there is no time to dwell on this when I am as busy as I am in the LORD. I’m pastoring churches all over the world and fighting the anti-Christ government, which is controlled by the spirit of Satan’s Roman government.
Being from the music industry, I used to use a lot of slang language. Susie said I had to get rid of this, so she took me to Christian missions where I could testify in downtown Los Angeles and at Santa Monica Beach. After each session, she would tell me what slang language I should not have used. I was allowed to do street witnessing with Sue and some of the new converts, using Gospel tracts.
Being from the music and motion picture industry, I thought that my first convert would be one of them. However, it wasn’t. We won thousands of hippies to the LORD. Most of them had long hair and patched jeans. Many had bare feet. We would all go out into the street and win more converts. It was easy to see that the government had manipulated the youth into participating in the drug culture, free sex, abortions, and homosexuality—all the vile and vulgar things that you see people doing today and that they did back in the sixties.
The youth have become so wicked because their parents are afraid to spank them. In Arkansas, I was fined sixty million dollars, which later was reduced to thirty million dollars, for having two unruly youths spanked (they were 18 years old). I am still fighting this because my attorneys have informed me that spanking a child for misbehavior in the state of Arkansas is not illegal. But this information was erroneously withheld by the judge from the jury in the trial of this lawsuit.
The government has brought billions of dollars worth of drugs into the United States, and the majority of the population, including the youth and several of our Presidents, have used them. Mr. Clinton, Mr. Bush, and Mr. Obama all have testified that they have been on drugs. Of course, Mr. Clinton never inhaled. We all believe that, right?
There have been a rash of murders committed by youths and adults because of drugs. I have taken an excerpt out of a book titled The Rise of the Reich to show you how many murders have been committed by youth because their parents have been compelled by the public schools, the media, and the government to put them on Ritalin. Before I write some of these tragedies, I want to remind you that there really is a GOD. You are going to stand before HIM very soon, sooner than you think.1
“Education today is mixing drugs with student control. In years past, if a child was acting up or caught staring out the window, he or she received a rap on the knuckles with a ruler and was told to stay with the rest of the class. Today, that child is sent to the school nurse, who oftentimes tells the parents that their child has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. [I was hyper as a child, and I was never put on drugs, thank GOD!] The nurse then recommends the administration of Prozac or Ritalin, psychotropic drugs that have been shown to produce psychosis in lab rats. At least one state has put a stop to this practice. A 1999 study at the Human Development Center at the University of Wisconsin found that thirteen ADHD children on medication, over four years, performed progressively worse on standardized tests than a group of thirteen normal children with similar IQs and other characteristics.
“Psychiatrist Peter Breggin, in his 1991 book Toxic Psychiatry, wrote, ‘Hyperactivity is the most frequent justification for drugging children.’ Alan Larson, a former secretary of the Oregon Federation of Independent Schools, criticized the expanding diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder.
“Drugs such as Ritalin, now used to treat questionable mental afflictions, are taken by tens of millions of American youngsters. A 1986 edition of the International Journal of the Addictions listed 105 adverse reactions to Ritalin, including suicidal tendencies.
“Americans wonder why there has been a rash of school shootings and teen suicides in recent years, yet virtually all of these killings have involved a student either on mood-altering drugs or just coming off of them. In five cases of school shootings from March 1998 through March 1999, including the tragedy at Columbine High School, at least seven of the students involved were being medicated. It was downplayed but reported that Seung-Hui Cho, the gunman in the Virginia Tech shootings in April 2007, had been undergoing psychological counseling and had prescription psychoactive drugs in his possession.
“A website called TeenScreenTruth is dedicated to gathering information off the internet to help teens connect the dots and see the connections between mood-altering drugs and teen violence. The website states, ‘Here is a statistic that is rarely mentioned in news reports: in nearly every school shooting incident, the children and teens involved were already taking one or more psychiatric drugs or had just recently come off of them, and had been under the care of a psychiatrist or a mental health practitioner.’ The same is true for the majority of child and teen suicides. They were already on some type of psychiatric drug program that was supposed to be treating their ‘mental illness,’ yet they killed themselves anyway.
“The TeenScreenTruth site and the Indianapolis Star compiled a list of violent episodes dating as far back as 1985. The list includes: (1) In 1986, fourteen year old Rod Matthews of Canton, Massachusetts, beat a classmate to death with a baseball bat while on Ritalin. (2) In 1988, thirty-one year old Laurie Dann, who had been taking Anafranil and Lithium, walked into a second grade classroom in Winnetka, Illinois, and began shooting. One child was killed and six wounded. (3) In 1989, Patrick Purdy, twenty-five, opened fire on a schoolyard filled with children in Stockton, California. Five kids were killed and thirty wounded. He had been taking Thorazine and Amitriptyline. (4) In 1993, Steve Lieth, of Chelsea, Michigan, walked into a school meeting and shot and killed the school superintendent, wounding two others, while on Prozac. (5) In 1996, ten year old Tommy Bectin grabbed his three year old niece as a shield and aimed a shot gun at a sheriff’s deputy, who was with a truant officer at his Florida home. He had been on Prozac. (6) In 1997, Michael Carneal, fourteen years old, opened fire on students at a high school prayer meeting in Heath High in West Paducah, Kentucky. Three died, and one was paralyzed. Carneal was on Ritalin. (7) In 1998, eleven year old Andrew Golden and fourteen year old Mitchell Johnson faked a fire alarm at Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Arkansas, and shot at students as they left the building, killing four students and a teacher. Both boys were on Ritalin. (8) In 1999, fifteen year old Shawn Cooper of Notus, Idaho, took a shotgun to school and injured one student. He had been taking Ritalin. (9) In 1999, Steven Abrams drove his car into a preschool playground in Costa Mesa, California, killing two. He was on probation, with a requirement to take Lithium. (10) In 2000, T. J. Solomon, fifteen years old, opened fire at Heritage High School in Conyers, Georgia, and six were wounded. He was on a mixture of antidepressants.”
The Bible tells us JESUS sometimes uses trees to symbolize people. In other words, we can tell what kind of a tree it is by the fruit that it bears.2 If we see oranges on a tree, we know that it is an orange tree, and likewise, if we see apples on a tree, we know that it is an apple tree. In Matthew 12:33, JESUS states, “Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. [HE is speaking of evil things such as putting someone on drugs so that they murder others and commit suicide. Your evil words prescribe drugs and prescribe homosexuality and promote abortion, which is first degree murder. They promote fornication and adultery, false religions, and all evil. JESUS said in Matthew 12:36,] But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:33-37).
Be justified in the eyes of the LORD by becoming born again of the SPIRIT by saying this prayer. Then be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, the SON, and the HOLY SPIRIT (Matthew 28:18-20). Study the WORD, and do what it says (2 Timothy 2:15, 3:14-17).
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
Now that you are saved, make sure you are baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, in the name of the SON, and in the name of the HOLY SPIRIT (Matthew 28:18-20). Serve GOD with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). Study the Scriptures, and do what they say until the day you die (2 Timothy 2:15, 3:14-17).
