Quoting Quiverfull: Hindering the Creator?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies

Because God is a Creator, He loves to create. He delights in creating each new baby that is born. And every human being God creates is unique, different, and special–a new divine creation that has never been created before. Just think, that when we stop God from giving us another baby, we stop His creativity. We stop the Creator in His work. We interfere in His creative worship.

Not only do we stop God in His work, but we deprive ourselves, the world, and eternity of the special creation God has planned from the foundation of the world.

I think it’s time we got our thinking in line with God, rather than our puny human thinking, don’t you?

  • By this reasoning, Ted Bundy was a special creation God had planned from the foundation of the world. Only by killing young women who would probably otherwise have married and gone on to have children, he prevented other special creations God had planned from the foundation of the world from coming into being.

    I have to go lie down now. My brain is starting to ache.

    Man your god is weak if he can’t brake a condom.

    Nancy obviously isn’t a creator (well, obviously women can’t be because of their puny little lady brains) because if she was, then she’d know that every creator scraps tons of ideas and creations along the way. For every brilliant thing, hundreds more had been scrapped, tossed aside when half-way done or never started in the first place.
    If God is a Creator, and I like that idea, then I’d think that God delights in us making our own creations in the form of works of art, inventions, architecture, etc. God gave us brains to create more than just babies.

    That passage must be so infuriating to the barren.

  • Antigone10

    She ends in a question, but has no way to put comments. That’s…really weird.

    Every whale is also unique. Every deer is unique. The more room on this Earth that is taken up by humans and their needs, the less room there is for the Creator’s other creations.
    Or maybe my not using birth control, people are keeping him busy here, when he’d like to be creating life on some of those billions of other planets in this huge universe.
    Stop assuming it’s all about humans; humility is supposed to be a virtue, right?
