Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – ‘Star Wars’ Movie Series Message is Kill Christianity?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Star Wars in Light of the BibleEditor's note: There's just so much from this sermon that belongs here, but there's not enough room or time. I leave you with this, Steven ranting about Darth Vadar being pseudo-Jesus and Buddhism. Why does every single one of his sermons read like a demented justification for hating others, fearing the world and like the ravings of someone without a good grip on mental health? I've read all sorts of odd justifications for Christians hating Yoga but he's managed to come up with a new one here. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 1 The Three Types of Women (Understanding Your Woman’s Motivation)

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 139-142If you are anything like me, you read the title of this chapter and stopped, did a double take, and then you jaw dropped. Did you re-read the title, just to make sure you got it right? Because I sure did. But it's true. This chapter is about the three kinds of women. Yes, Michael allows that women have personalities. But, of course, the point of learning about women's personalities is to figure out which type your wife is, so that you can more readily "lead" her to be the proper help meet she wants to be. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – ‘Star Wars’ Movie Series Message is Kill Christianity?

by Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Star War in Light of the BibleEditor's note: This entire long screen that is supposed to be a sermon has some of the strangest hateful points. 1) Star Wars leads to the acceptance of sexual predators, 2) It's Buddhist thought bent on destroying Christianity and 3) Hate, fear and anger are all Biblical emotions that every Christian should feel towards others. So much word salad! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Don’t Bore Your Teenagers?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - What Are We Going to Do?Editor's note: This sounds much like the keep too busy to think style of parenting. But does this work? I don't know, this also sounds like those over-involved helicopter parents that thrive in the wealthier suburbs of the city. Who's to say there aren't sexual predators or bad influences in those classes too? Michael is fighting a losing battle trying to protect his progeny from all negative influences. Would it not be better to teach those children how to deal with predators and others rather than wrap them in emotional cotton wool and keep them isolated? … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Worship Baking Your Own Bread?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the things we're run across again and again in both former fundamentalist post-religion narratives and within the active Quiverfull world is a strange emphasis on baking bread for your family from scratch. During my years in a funda-gelical church I participated in it too. But I never knew why we were doing it. People talked about their bread, humble-bragged about their bread, shared their extra bread and recipes and at our church newcomers were all giving a fresh loaf of home baked bread to welcome them to our fellowship. Bread loomed large … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Don’t Bore Your Teenagers?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - What Are We Going to Do?Editor's note: In this short piece Michael sings the praises of rural life while throwing shade at the people that must live in cities. Hate to break it to him but there are just as many sexual predators per capita in the country as there are in the city. The difference being is that they have to be more creative to continue their perving. Where there are less of a potential victim pool it requires a certain shift in methods and expectations. But it does happen. Even Cane Creek isn't safe. … [Read more...]

When Reality Collides With Earnest Expectations

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding FundamentalI’ve never been much good at New Year’s Resolutions.I tend to over-think everything including all the areas in which I need to improve... so much... that instead of getting motivated and energized by the practice, I end up defeated and discouraged. I just can not seem to make it work for me.I know what the problem is. My resolutions are entirely unrealistic and being that ‘resolutions‘ are supposed to be made for the long haul, it is necessary to evaluate them for their importance and edit out the trivial if one has any hope of keeping them. … [Read more...]
