“Real Marriage” Review: 19-41 “Friends With Benefits”

martin-and-katherine-luther

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons When I was in graduate school, one of the books I had to read was The Power of Words and the Wonder of God, and one of the chapters was written by Mark Driscoll– unsurprisingly, it was on swearing. I didn’t know anything about Mark Driscoll at the time, but I figured out quick that he was a pretty big fan of Martin Luther. As I’ve come to know more about Mark, that he sees himself as a “Martin Luther 2.0″ should surprise absolutely no one, and that comes across pretty clearly in this chapter. The first five pages are dedicated to Martin Luther’s marriage to Katherine von Bora, and Mark cannot even begin to contain his enthusi … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Can Be Replaced in Everything But the Home?

replacements

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - No One Can Replace You Dear mother, can I ask you what voices you are listening to? There are so many voices in this world, all vying for preeminence in your mind. Humanistic voices lure you away from the heart of the home, the place God has divinely provided for you to raise your children. Voices tempt you to get involved in more and more things that take your time away from your home and family.God has innately put in you what He wants you to do. Listen to your heart, dear mother. Listen to God's voice. You are needed for your children. No one else will ever love and care for your children like you do. No one else will ever be sensitive to their … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Small Mercies?

childinabox

by Michael Pearl from World Magazine - To Train Up A Pharisee  “I have never advocated—either in private, public speaking, or in writing—withholding food from a child, forcing children to sleep on the floor or outside, constraining them in blankets (or by any other means), spanking children on their feet, faces, or backs, locking them in small rooms or tight containers, or forcing them to stay outside in cold weather.” … [Read more...]

thankyou

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen I set up the Give Forward fundraiser for Vyckie Garrison I thought that getting people to donate was going to be a huge chore and take months to accomplish.

It's been incredible! Thank you … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Backpedaling Furiously From Vision Forum?

Crossing the line in the sand to build insane sand castles

Quoted from Jennifer McBride's blog Noble Womanhood - The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth: A Follow Up Response to Michael FarrisI know the news of HSLDA distancing its self from patriarchy is old news at this point, but this is one of the few blogs I've seen in the Quiverfull/Evangelical/Patriarchy sphere that has spoken out against Farris. Jennifer is quoting Michael Farris of HSLDA from his statement distancing HSLDA from patriarchy and Vision Forum. I would recommend reading her entire posting as she seems to be very bent out of shape that Farris dared to deviate from the Vision Forum stance on the place of women. Wonder how many 'True Christians'(tm) are cancelling … [Read more...]
