Quoting Quiverfull: Gardening is Super-Godly!?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Gardens Are Precious!Editor's note: Nancy's back on the subject of gardens being oh so Godly again. This gardening thing is a new wrinkle in her theology, the first year she's made such a big deal out of planting a garden. She apparently thinks that buying vegetables and fruit from the super market or farmers market isn't right either. Wonder what is driving all this drivel about gardens this year? … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – How Can I Better Relate to Unmarried Ladies?

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical,  rational and the best possible solution, in other words 1 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Are NOT Worthy?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Bethel is Where We Learn to Fear GodEditor's note: According to Nancy's husband Colin if you are not quaking and shaking with fear plus insisting you are not worthy then you are no real Christian. Tell us again how Nancy is humble and thinks she's not worthy because all of her writing seems to indicate that she thinks she's the only righteous one out there. At the end he throws some serious shade at Donald Trump without mentioning his name. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Will Send Your Children to Heaven or Hell?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - To Heaven or Hell?Editor's note: This is actually a quote by Watchman Nee not Colin Campbell and his silly sounding ministry name.  Actually, 'Meat For Men' sounds like the title of a very bad porno film. While it's true that parents can influence their children in many ways saying that parents determine all eternity for their children is something of a stretch at best. … [Read more...]

by Suzanne TitkemeyerGentlemen start your engines and let the slut-shaming commence! It's an all slut-shaming inappropriate conversations with odd guys in the park extravaganza!The title of this chapter is 'The Importance of Boyfriends' and as the chapter unfolds Von makes it sound as if boyfriends were the newest trendy accessory, like a Fendi bag or a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes with the bright red soles or a French tip mani/pedi. Not that author Vaughn Ohlman is familiar with the must haves, unless it's the must have items in fundamentalism, a crisp KJV Bible, an ironed floor length skirt and a pack of 'ministry mints' Altoids in your pocket just in case you have to do an … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Perverted Porno Freaks Don’t Need Prayer?

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - More of SodomEditor's note: Last little bit in Michael's hate and blaming fest. This type of thinking keeps people out of the hands of real help, competent therapists, understanding pastors and lay leaders and others who've walked that same path. It's just never as simple as toss out your tv and pray without ceasing. That does nothing for obsessional thoughts or real addictions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Perverted Porno Freaks Don’t Need Prayer?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - More of SodomEditor's note: When we left Michael he was detailing why confession and therapy does not work for addictions according to him. We continue on. Comparing someone struggling with addictions to a baboon cannot be healthy. If only it was as simple as he thinks it is. … [Read more...]
