“Real Marriage” review: 107-122, ‘Sex: God, Gross or Gift?’

marriage-bed

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons This chapter seems to be Mark and Grace’s attempt at establishing a historical context for arguments they’ll make later; it’s basically nothing more than an extremely truncated and condensed version of how sex has been viewed in Ancient Near Eastern (“biblical”) and Christian cultures. The unfortunate thing is that their history lesson is … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism Lies?

F-Bombs-for-feminism

by Matt Walsh posted at both The Matt Walsh Blog and The Blaze - Feminism is PoisonNot linking to Matt's blog because I do not want to give him the hit traffic on his ads. He wrote this piece in reaction to the FkcH8 video of the little girls using the word 'Fuck' to make a point. Love it or hate it, the video  does tend to make you think. Unfortunately it's making Matt lie and purposely impugn the honest, hard working men and women of the Bureau of Labor Statistics over their carefully collected data that shows an income gap based upon gender. … [Read more...]

Have You Seen This Man? – Kevin Swanson Edition

kevin

by Suzanne TitkemeyerI should have started with Kevin Swanson's 'Generations With Vision' website yesterday in my puzzling over the disappearance of Kevin. He posted this in his blog:Over the last several months, several pastor friends have advised that I take a sabbatical.  It has been 16 years of rather intense ministry life, and the 80-90 hour weeks can wear on you after awhile.  So. . . we’re turning the mainframe off, and we shall be in hibernation for somewhere around 10 weeks.  Some of you may see me in Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina, California, and parts unknown over the next weeks.  But, technically I am on sabbatical beginning Wednesday of this week. Stay tuned to the … [Read more...]

“You’re Supposed to be Creating An Army For God”

vyckie

A new article about NLQ founder Vyckie Garrison from Good Magazine!One woman’s courageous struggle to be more than a “womb man” by Sarah Stankorb In the fall of 2007, Vyckie Garrison’s faith began to crumble.

She spent her days home schooling her kids and publishing a pro-life Christian newspaper with her husband. So strong was her faith that when she was warned to steer clear of a hippie, nonbelieving uncle, she felt insulted that others tho … [Read more...]
