Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Where Can I Find A Godly Wife?

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: Christians Are Called to Nasty Name Call Others?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - On Judging, Hating and Name CallingEditor's note: Zsuzsanna ends this by saying it's a-okay to call homosexuals bad names because the Bible does. She ends by citing Santa Claus and blaming the television for unsaved (in her eyes) peoples views of others. All it does is make her look like what the Southern Poverty Law Center has dubbed her husband's church, Faithful Word Baptist Church, like a member of a dangerous hate group. Someone that might go out and take pot shots at different nationalities or throw a bomb at the President, instead of a Godly woman faithfully fulfilling her self defined role of wife and mother. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Are Called to Hate Others?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours? - On Judging, Hating and Name CallingEditor's note: As horrific as yesterday's quote from Zsuzsanna was this gets infinitely worse when she says it's alright to outright hate others. Also she has a fundamental misunderstanding of the word 'Sodomy'. Instead of thinking it refers to a certain sexual act she is claiming it applies to anyone that does not do what God calls them to do per the standards of the Bible. Knowing that they are using the word so liberally makes sense of many of the more nonsensical posts of her husband and herself. … [Read more...]

Family Life Today: Poised to Take Over the Vacancy Left by Vision Forum Ministries

suzannetitkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen the news of the unwanted sexual encounters between Vision Forum's Doug Phillips and Lordes Torres came out followed by the closing of both Vision Forum Ministries and their for profit Vision Forum Inc it left quite a void in the world of Christian Dominionism, Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements. Everyone speculated who would take over from the powerhouse dominionist ministry of Vision Forum. But those that might have stepped in to fill the void left by the closing of Vision Forum had their own scandals to deal with: first Bill Gothard of IBLP/ATI, who is huge in the world of homeschooling and dominionism, was accused of groping teenagers working at ATI … [Read more...]

I Have Trust Issues

livingliminal

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalA few weeks ago, a friend asked me about whether I was thinking about finding another church to attend. I hesitated, talked around the question for a bit, and then I was finally able to admit out loud that I have trust issues when it comes to church leadership.There was a time when I would automatically trust someone because they said they were a christian. That went doubly so for anyone in leadership in a church. Stupidly, naively, I bought into the idea that christians in general, and christian leaders in particular, could be trusted. … [Read more...]

Part 1 – A Crash Course in Sex, Gender and Gender Identity

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's note: While this has little to do with evangelicals or quiverfulls it does speak to the misinformation and downright lies that are taught about sexuality in the quiverfull movement and much of Christianity. Knowledge is power, so the next time a Zsuzanna Anderson type starts ranting about alternate sexuality in a hateful way you'll have the knowledge to know they don't know what the heck they are really talking about.The recent furor (in some circles) over Chris Jenner has clarified for me some of the main misconceptions about transgender identity. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Are Called To Judge Others?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - On Judging, Hating and Name CallingEditor's note: So apparently Nancy Campbell is not the only Quiverfull Evangelical that will admit to judging people and claiming it's Biblical and what God designed them to do. Steven L. Anderson's wife Zsuzsanna thinks the exact same way. Not surprised because it seems like the ones that are the most judgmental usually find Bible verses to support their own not so nice behaviors. Zsuzsanna also thinks it's okay to openly hate others and call them names. … [Read more...]

Pastor Bob Gray Sr. Pines for the 1950s

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserLast year, Bob Gray Sr., retired pastor of Longview Baptist Temple in Longview, Texas, took to his blog pulpit to whine and complain about church women no longer obeying Deuteronomy 22:5: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. That’s right, Brother Bob is upset about Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) church women wearing pants. Of all the things a pastor could or should be worried about, Gray is concerned about women wearing what he perceives to be men’s clothing. Gray write … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Loves Emily Post?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - What's Their Answer?Editor's note: Sometimes I get the feeling that Nancy is out of things to talk about and starts scraping the bottom of the 'make others feel guilty and inadequate' barrel and posts like this one are the result. Why should one word answers not be enough? Does God worship all things polite and mannerly? Hey, at least the kid answered the question. I suppose one word answers might be considered rude but is this really the thing you want to focus on in parenting? Manners can be important but this is sort of over the top on many levels. … [Read more...]
