by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Questions a Wife Can Ask to Tear Her House DownEditor's note: More from the don't ever even slightly threaten your weak wimpy Christian husband's threadbare masculinity.

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Questioning Your Husband Destroys Your Marriage?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Questions a Wife Can Ask to Tear Down Her HouseEditor's note: It's amazing how fearful most women are in the world of Evangelicalism and how weak, ineffectual and insecure the men seem to be. How does anything get done on a practical gut level if interacting, have real important discussions and having any human needs is so threatening? Miserable and frustrating way to live. Please do not take Debi Pearl's toxic marriage advice. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marry So Others Are Not Confused?

Found on Ladies Against Feminism and written by Tim Challies of Challies.com - Why Marriage is Better Than CohabitationEditor's note: Most of the reasons to marry instead of live together in this article aren't bad ones. Some are the same arguments I've cited in my review of Vaughn Ohlman's book as a reason not to do marriage his way without a marriage license. Things such as legally protecting the rights of inheritance for the surviving spouse and protects the children born of the relationship if one party or the other decides to abandon the family. Those are good reasons to marry. However, getting married to make everyone around you that cannot figure out what your relationship … [Read more...]

Examining ATI Wisdom Booklets: Booklet 5 – Science – How Wheat Grows

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAll images from When Cows and Kids Collide and used with permission. This post is 8 pages long. In today's little slice of crazy from ATI's Wisdom Booklet 5, we take John 12:24 and use it as the basis for an entire lesson on how plants grow from seeds.  Teaching kids how plants grow is a great idea!  Using John 12:24 as a literal explanation of how wheat grows is a terrible idea.I don't want anyone to think I'm bashing the Bible.  I love the metaphor in this verse about how death or loss often brings new life.  I've been humming the hymn "Unless A Grain of Wheat" all day. Historically, the metaphor makes sense.  In areas of … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Planned Parenthood Using Zika to Push Abortions For All?

Found on Ladies Against Feminism by Brad Mattes of Life News -Of 12,000 Women Infected With Zika, All Gave Birth to Healthy Baby. Women Don't "Need" AbortionEditor's note: While I do not doubt there's a strong possibility that the micro encephaly suffered by some babies born to Zika infected mothers might be a case of exposure to one of Monsanto's insecticides instead of Zika thre's no serious evidence that this was exploited by Planned Parenthood to push abortion. But, as usual, the 'Choose Life' crowd tries to frame the debate as being all about some evil plan. Emphasis below by the original author. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stay At Home Mothers Must Control Their Thoughts?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Do You Have It All Together?Editor's note: Nancy has put together a list of how mothers need to be in order to be good Christian moms who are staying at home raising their children. Not all of her rules are listed below, just a few, but most of them boil down to the same thing: Trust God while you control your thoughts you selfish selfish women! I hate to tell her, but moments of negative thoughts, occasional freaking out, and admitting you don't always have it together is not failure. It's being a normal imperfect member of the human race and perfectly understandable. We're not designed to be perfect fembots! … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: Are You Teaching Child Abuse?

For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]
