Quoting Quiverfull: Forced Obedience or Voluntary Obedience in Submission – Is There Much of a Difference?

quotingquiverfull

by Pastor Soni Japhet John from the comments on the Suko Family Blog - How To Make Your Wive Submit To Your AuthorityEditor's note: Originally I was going to quote from this blog posting that has been sweeping through the internet and going viral. But the comments are far most poisonous than the original article. If those inclined to practice submission did it as Mr. Suko did then it would be much less awful. It would be inching closer to egalitarian marriage. What is awful are the comments for the most part, particularly this quoted one, because it's ranty in that True Patriarch way. It may not be so much abusive in the language but in the way the pastor is expressing his views. Enjoy. … [Read more...]

Thoughts on Conservative Christian Colleges From a Liberty Graduate

samantha

by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons There’s a bit of a hubbub happening this week over a certain announcement made during Liberty University’s convocation on Monday. If you don’t travel in the circles who are all abuzz about it, here’s the gist: Ted Cruz is the first Republican to formally announce his candidacy for the 2016 election, and he did it at Liberty, in front of an audience of thousands of college students. That’s not the newsworthy part, though– what has caught everyone’s attention is that this audience was a literally captive one. Liberty students who live in the on-campus dormitories are required to attend convocation (Liberty’s word for “chapel”) … [Read more...]

Dianna Anderson’s ‘Damaged Goods’ Book Review

Image from Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’ve been looking forward to Dianna Anderson’s Damaged Goods: New Perspectives on Christian Purity for well over a year now, so when it came in the mail a few weeks ago I was thrilled to pieces. I have so much respect for Dianna’s writing (today’s piece on Christianity and Empire is a must-read), and I was happy that someone like her would be tackling evangelical purity culture in a book. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Adopted Kids Are Sexual Predators & Deviants?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Avoiding VacuumsEditor's note: Curiously Victorian-esque language by the lady asking the question, which makes me think this letter was another suspicious Pearl invention, just like so many of the published letters Debi and Michael claim to receive asking for advice. Takes a completely different yet just as wrong tact on the subject of adoption that those in the Rescue Adoption world. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christ or Cocaine?

quotingquiverfull

by Doug Wilson from his blog Blog and Mablog - Christ or CocaineEditor's note: What is it with these guys lately? First we had John Piper saying that holding God's hand felt better than any pile of perverted sex and now Wilson is comparing Paul's behavior to a coke dealer. Think both of them are going for shock value to bring eyeballs to their content with their awful shocker analogies. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – He Is Praying With Another Girl

Answering

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 18 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Point At Which You Are An Actual Adult?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from his review of Israel Wayne's book "Full Time Parenting" as posted at True Love Doesn't WaitEditor's note: Mr. Ohlman still holds with the not even Biblical assertion that the eldest male in every family is the head of the family, the patriarchy. Which means that his review of Israel Wayne's book "Full Time Parenting" he decries the idea of the point at which you can be considered reaching adulthood. Isn't the point of being considered an adult in the Old Testament when you have your bar or bat mitzvah? How about graduating from school and starting to support oneself as a fully fledged adult would do? Where is that point of adulthood? … [Read more...]

Stepping On Lego

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living Liminal I've just read a post by Matt B Redmond in which he talks about the idea of a "messy" christian life. In it he talks about his boys having to do some cleaning up: "Last night, we asked our boys to clean up the den because it was messy. Legos were everywhere. Their socks and shoes were scattered across the room. Library books covered one area. So they cleaned it up." At the end one reader left a comment: … [Read more...]
