Quoting Quiverfull: Concubines, Slaves and Polygamy – God Approved Ways?

quotingquiverfullby Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles – Did the Bible Allow Men to Have Sex Slaves (not linking to the post because the website Do Not Link is still down)

Editor’s note: Anyone that has been reading BGR for awhile could tell Larry was going in a direction that would eventually land at approval of slavery and polygamy. It’s no surprise and it fits with the entire idea of white entitlement and dominionism that is usually more hidden in Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist Christianity.

Were concubinage, slavery and polygamy sins that God overlooked?

In this post we have discussed some topics that are all very offensive to our modern cultural values. This is the part of the article where 99% of Christian writers will tell you that the practices of concubinage, slavery and polygamy were all sins God overlooked for a time but then God rid of in the New Testament.

The truth is that God never condemned the practices of concubinage, slavery or polygamy. He gave strict rules as to how these things could be practiced but he never condemned the practices themselves.

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
