Quoting Quiverfull: Godly Seed Matters The Most?

by Colin Campbell of Above Rubies and Meat for Men – Seeking Godly Seed!

In Today’s Christian America, we do not seek godly children. Instead, we seek every method and way to avoid conceiving children. This present mindset is unquestionably and diametrically opposed to God’s revelation in His Word on this subject. Those who oppose this truth do so to their own ignorance and high-minded stubbornness.

Men, we need to beware of the spirit of “Jannes and Jambres who withstood Moses” (2 Timothy 3:18). Many oppose God’s Word about seeking godly children and smugly think nothing of it. I say, let the world oppose the biblical value of receiving children. What else can you expect from a deceived, unbelieving world? However, those who call themselves believers should seek to be meek, humble, and teachable on this subject and resist the world’s mindset.

If all Christian couples would seek after what God seeks, the Christian population of USA would increase greatly. We would soon swamp out all our enemies by sheer numbers, let alone the powerful affect of increased righteousness in the land.

    Like increasing the “Christian population” will do something to alleviate the fact that there are at least 5 times more people on the planet than it can even begin to support, and I seriously doubt they’d be able to survive without some of the less- or un- godly people.

    Doncha know that god will provide for his faithful servants? I mean, look how he took care of that family who got on a boat and headed out into the ocean to Kiribati. Sure, they never made it, but look at what a powerful witness they’ve given while living off the charity of unbelievers and sucking up taxpayer money when rescued.

  • AlisonCummins

    According to John the Baptist, God doesn’t care who your parents are. So the Quiverfull obsession of producing lots of people with the correct biological parents is anti-biblical.

  • Trollface McGee

    Every sperm is sacred…
    The more I read stuff like this, the more I think there are people who see that as not satire.

  • newcomer

    To paraphrase: ”Just LOOK at how smug and arrogant those dirty heathens are being by not making the exact same choices that I do, which are obviously based on Truth because I believe they are!!’ -says humble, meek little me’

  • The notion of outbreeding the unbelievers is scary. I would hate to think of the changes that a full government full of Biblical Patriarchy would make.

  • derickrae

    None of the large evangelical families I grew up around had 100% of their kids grow up to be Christians. In fact, of the many families I know, it’s running closer to 50%.

    Actually, given what people knew of reproduction back in “Biblical” times (which is NOTHING!) they DID believe that every sperm was sacred! They knew NOTHING about the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, ovulation, eggs, sperm/egg fertilization…NOTHING! What they DID know is that something (semen/sperm) came out of man, and if it came out inside a woman, you got a baby. If that didn’t happen, it was the woman’s fault. THAT is why they had the “mandate” against men masturbating (not “spilling seed”) and why Lot’s daughters got him drunk and were “with” him (“to preserve his seed”). The males would inherit their father’s land, crops and herds, and the women would be sold off to be breed-stock for someone else. If a woman didn’t have a son, she would have no one to care for her in her old age, because women weren’t allowed to inherit property of any sort–property can not own property, and that’s what women were: PROPERTY.

    For all the flowery speech about how men “cherish” and “elevate” women, the fundamentalists, in fact, do not! Women are still treated as property, regardless of how they try to sugar-coat it.

    I hadn’t heard about that family, so I had to look it up. Seems to me that “God” sent the US government (which they were trying to escape) to save their ignorant asses!! If they believed that the government has too much control over religion (WTF?!?) WHY did they come back to the US? Why didn’t they just stay in Venezuela? I’m sure the drug lords would have welcomed them with open arms.

    I will say she (Hannah) was right about one thing: Jesus is NOT the head of the church…there is a flesh-and-blood, greedy, self-serving HUMAN MALE (or a group of them) that are the “head of the church”. NEWS FLASH to all the fundies: Jesus is NOT returning!! The people who said/wrote/believed that when he was crucified believed he would be back within days. Well, here we are, over 2000 years later, and it’s NOT happening!! (They completely missed Jesus’ message back then, and they’ve tweaked and rewritten it a million times since then, so it’s completely lost to those people. They are doing exactly what Jesus admonished them NOT to do. DUH!)

    I have this image of Jesus laying back on a boat on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon eating fruit he harvested on the Sabbath and wondering, “What are these dominion knuckleheads talking about?”

    Of course, Christianity has nothing to do with grace and faith – it’s all about genetics.

    The funny thing is the Bible doesn’t shy away from the fact that some very godly people have produced the most reprobate offspring (i.e. David’s sons, Amnon and Absalom, and the Priest Eli’s sons).

    He’s not doing anything to stop any of his followers doing all the damage in his name if he does exist, and that right there disqualifies him from any definition of “good” and “loving” I can accept.

  • Christine

    “We would soon swamp out all our enemies by sheer numbers, let alone the powerful affect of increased righteousness in the land”
    I know it’s trite, but I love the way fundies often can’t spell properly, despite their superior education. I believe here Colin actionally meant “effect” the noun rather than “affect” the verb.
    Other than that, how does he account for most of the US population identifying as “Christian?” I suppose they don’t count because they aren’t ABCDXYZ Christians, they’re just Christians.

  • I agree that they knew nothing about reproduction. Therefore, nobody guessed that a virgin birth could make the Genesis 3 prediction (enemy of the woman, her seed would crush his head) true.

    But they had no mandate against masturbating – the Onan story was of a man who should have helped a certain woman have a baby (in a culture where having children was important) but did not.

    As for males inheriting or woman not allowed to own property, there are many cases of female land owners in the Bible, for example Achsah getting a field from her father in Judges 1:15, the Proverbs 31 woman buying land, and God declaring that you may not, if you don’t have sons, favor anyone over your daughter when it comes to inheritance. (Num 27:8) I am not surprized that he never mentioned favoring a son over daughters, as he never mentioned favoring one son over his brothers either.
