Quoting Quiverfull: Babies Want to Kill?

Quoting

by Voddie Baucham as transcribed by R.L. Stollar and posted at Homeschoolers Anonymous from his sermon 'Doctrine of Total Depravity'Editor's note: This entire sermon is disturbing and the main point seems to be that people living without any fear of God are almost demonic. In Voddie's thinking that includes children and new born babies. Voddie's words about babies and children seem to be counter to the words of Jesus about little ones. … [Read more...]

Part 2 – The Paradox of Freedom

Image from Living Liminal

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalPart one can be found here - Part 1 - The Paradox of FreedomI shared in my last post about the revolutionary discovery I made after my husband left me - that I actually had the freedom to choose whether or not to forgive him! And that it was only when I found out I was free to choose, that I was truly able to forgive. This is what I call the paradox of freedom.Now it's been many years since that momentous realisation. Since then I've seen a precious friendship turn into marriage, been blessed with two more amazing sons, suffered spiritual abuse, lost my 'religion', and embarked on a faith journey with a freshly-revealed … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bill Gothard’s Teachings Are in Prisons?

NLQ original image

by Jinger Duggar from the book 'Growing Up Duggar' pages 211 - 212Editor's note: The first time I read these passages I was struck by Jinger's judgmental description of the female inmates faces as having 'lines of grief and bitterness' but after rereading this some months later it feels much more outrageous that the teachings of Bill Gothard and the IBLP are being taught in a tax payer funded facility. Is this just a bunch of humble brag or is it the best thing they could do for the ladies in the jail? Thoughts, dear readers? … [Read more...]

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Beautiful SongEditor's note: One of Nancy's shorter ones. Must have been a busy day. Still the message is the same as always even with Nancy's unusual economy of words: Do not complain. Always smile. Suck it up and do it.  … [Read more...]

Curiosity, A Missing Evangelical Trait

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserWhy is it that so many Evangelicals have no desire to be curious? Yes, I know many are, so don’t get your panties in a bunch if you are acuriouser (sp) than a cat Evangelical. I frequently get  an email or a blog comment from an Evangelical Christian wanting to “help” me find my way to Jesus. They are certain that they possess the requisite knowledge and skill to win me to Jesus. They are certain that if they just befriend me, quote the right verses, soothe my hurts, or understand my pain, I will fall on my knees and call on the name of Jesus. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sheltering Your Kids From The World Because Bible?

NLQ original image

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Is it Right to Shelter Our Children?Editor's note: Crawford is trying to compare sending your children to public school as something similar to allowing your child free access to 'porn'. Very bad analogy and straight up Evangelical fear mongering. Logic fail 101. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Watching Israel Thrills Debi?

NLQ original image

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine - The Crown of Loving His AppearingEditor's note: We're skipping over Debi Pearl's mentions of Hitler but if you must see her words on Hitler and the Jews it is up at the above link. This reads like vicarious martyrbating for End Times along with her usual put-downs on the secular world. One thing about Debi, she sure knows how to throw shade at people who aren't her version of saved.  … [Read more...]
