Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Is Meant Only To Serve God?

by Francis and Lisa Chan from The Gospel Coalition as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Marriage and EternityEditor's note: LAF seems to be laboring under the idea that marriage is mostly about serving God. Did I miss that part of the Bible because I don't remember anything said about the primary function of marriage was serving God. What about those people that say that the primary function of marriage is to keep you from sexual sin, or to increase the kingdom by birthing a quiverful of righteous arrows? Seems to me that different groups put different spins on marriage instead of recognizing it for what it is, a union of two people who love each other and want to spend every day for t … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 3 – Cinderella

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideI found this next part confusing. Leah is the author, but spends most of the time talking about David. I'm pretty sure Leah is an actual person - not a Debi character - because bits of the story seem plausible. David flew to Papua New Guinea for a two-month mission trip with orphans when he was 13 years old. Did David go to Papau New Guinea to work with orphans OR take a group of orphans on a two-month mission trip to Papau New Guinea? … [Read more...]

Sci Fi, Fantasy and Religion

 by Kaleesha Williams cross posted from her blog The Lost (And Found) Mind of Kaleesha WilliamsA bit of rambling backstory first. With a houseful of rapidly growing children who are receiving their education at home, we are keen on opportunities to get the family out of the house for worthwhile activities and socialization.  Trips to the feed store, library and dentist are great, but they don’t quite cut it.  There are doubts that the weekly homeschool playgroup we’ve attended the last two years will come back together this fall, so we have been discussing our options. … [Read more...]

You Are Wrong!!

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserOver the past 8 years, various people have taken it upon themselves in an email, blog comment, Facebook comment, tweet, letter to the editor, sermon, or blog post  to emphatically tell me ‘”Bruce, You Are Wrong!!” Be it my liberal politics, the teams I root for, or my humanistic, atheistic beliefs, these beacons of absolute truth are infallibly certain that I am wrong. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Different Version of the Vaccine Death Tale?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine originally published in 1998 - Seeing Through a Glass DarklyEditor's note: This seems to be another version of Debi's story of the child that died suddenly of vaccination. But most of the details beyond the fact that a child died quickly and unexpectedly are very different, such as instead of having a single son Debi mentions her daughter Rebekah. Very interesting. Reposting this as counterpoint to her story in Preparing To Be A Help Meet.  … [Read more...]
