Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

Quoting

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Gasp! Michael just admitted that even atheists can live a "good life"! But then he goes right back into his toxic blaming shaming speech of referring to public school children as "Sodomites," cancelling out anything good he might say about anyone without his worldview. Followed by some ridiculous twaddle about 'natural life' and 'Jesus life'. Ugh. … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Does God Have One Perfect Person Just For Me?

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: Part 3 Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Simple Michael: He's telling parents not to be hypocrites, to practice what they preach on a daily basis, which is, after all, pretty good advice for any parent. There is nothing that will turn a teenager against his or her parents more than someone that says one thing and does completely contradictory actions to what they've said. But this first paragraph about kids who don't know anything about sex going on to commit incest reminds me of a certain exposed scandal in the world of Quiverfull. Is this what happened? Michael seems to know too much about this, which makes me wonder if it happened in his family too. Didn't Jim … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Again, tone-deaf and completely blind to reality Michael Pearl tries to bloviate on how all those other homeschooling parents are doing it wrong as well as throwing significant shade at parents that don't isolate their kids to prevent child molestation and other ills. Bonus points for telling his readers he cannot communicate effectively with them because they've been 'blinded by religion' … [Read more...]

“How To Win Over Depression” – review: 160 – 191

Howtowinoverdepression

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The DragonsHonestly, this chapter, which Tim titled “Depression and Your Temperament,” was more than a little befuddling. He bases his entire argument on Hippocrates’ Humorism— and no, I’m not joking. This chapter is dedicated to a medical theory thousands of years old that was completely obliterated by the advent of modern medical knowledge. … [Read more...]

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: From what Michael is saying in this article is that good Christian homeschooling parents have failed significantly if their children, the SGA, rush off to embrace all the things that the Pearl method parents seek to shield the SGA from in their childhood years. … [Read more...]

Christianpatriarchalwatchlistforparents

by Emily cross posted from her site - Christian Patriarchal Watch List For  Parents What do these ideas look like in real life? It varies, but not something I want for my daughter in any shade of gray, you? "I guess when you are the center of your family (prophet, king, and priest) where all the women serve you (wife and unmarried daughters), it must go to your head. On top of that add homeschooling expert, president of a company/ministry, and leader in a church, sought after speaker, author, and not to mention one's own sin nature, and what do you have?" http://surphside.blogspot.com/2013/11/questions-and-thoughts-about-vision.html … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: IFB Going Soft on Sodomites?

quotingquiverfull

by Steven L. Anderson of Tempe, Arizona's Faithful Word Baptist Church - Dr. Bob Gray Goes Soft on SodomitesEditor's note: Anderson is doubting down on his 'Death to All  Gays' stance and apparently furious that no one else much in the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist church will cooperate with his views.  He's not happy that they are calling it a sin like any other. While sexual orientation isn't something you can really control, meaning it's no sin, having the IFB willing to allow anyone from the LGBT community attend their church is a big step forward for them. … [Read more...]
