I know I know…this is definitely in the bible…right!?
No. The bible says that if you spare the rod you hate the child, not spoil him. The spoil part came from a 17th century poem and has been quoted as a biblical verse ever since.

The Names of God_part1_final

– Matt. 2:11-13

These are just a few of the many biblical quotes we can be heard repeating on an everyday basis that are actually not in the bible.
