Quoting Quiverfull: A Shining Light?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies –Training A Pure Generation

As my husband listened to Sean Hannity yesterday, he heard that according to two major sources, that USA used to be the least corrupt country in the west. Sadly, it has now become the most corrupt. In the midst of this corruption we have the responsibility and privilege to train children of integrity, children who will be courageous to stand for truth and purity in the midst of distortion.

This won’t happen easily. This will take courageous and purposeful mothers. This will take parents who will take their children out of the state school system where they are indoctrinated in humanism, feminism, socialism, and now more and more with the gay agenda. It is impossible to raise a pure and unadulterated generation who are filled with God’s truth if we send them to be educated by the enemy’s camp every day. We cannot turn this nation around when children from Christian families are being educated in everything that is against God and family.

Let’s raise shining lights in the midst of the darkness. And please don’t tell me that you send your child to school to be a shining light. Young children are not yet ready to stand against the deception. Instead, they are subtly brainwashed with humanism which is the opposite to God’s Word. But, we should get them ready to be strong, courageous, and filled with truth so that when they are older and ready they will come forth from our homes (not deceived and corrupted), but filled with light to disperse the darkness and deception.

    What’s the difference between a young child who can’t stand against deception, and an adult who has never left the confines of his/her parent’s thoughts?

    “USA used to be the least corrupt country in the west. Sadly, it has now become the most corrupt.”

    This is false, on both sides – There were a LOT of corruption scandals – we even had a president, James Garfield, who was assassinated because he passed legislation to reduce corruption. Then we had a lot of corrupt presidents – Andrew Johnson, Warren Harding (drunken poker parties in the White House during Prohibition and a mistress in the Oval Office closet). And now? Yes, we have corruption, so do most “Western” countries and we are not anywhere close to being the worst.
    Perhaps, her husband should take more diligence in what sources he listens to.
    And if she really cared about corruption – instead of children receiving the wrong kind of brainwashing, she’d care more about them learning critical thinking and real history, and not just throwing around scary buzzwords and memorising Bible verses.

    Agreed. Unless one reads history that is entirely revisionist, the US shows corruption from its inception through the present– in particular in its dealings with Native Americans and African Americans.

    Actually, the US does score low on the corruption scale, and continues to. But we are getting LESS corrupt, not more.

    … How is learning to be decent to other people an antithesis to G*d?

  • B.E. Miller

    Because it’s the Old Testament God, who will strike you down if you do not do exactly as he commands! (Or something like that.)

    “This will take parents who will take their children out of the state school system where they are indoctrinated in humanism, feminism, socialism, and now more and more with the gay agenda.”

    This idiot must not be aware that more and more secular families are also homeschooling their kids. With humanism as well! -gasp-
