Quoting Quiverfull: Only Christian Men Are Caring Fathers?

quotingquiverfull

by Robert Murray M'Cheyne as quoted by Stephanus Blignaut at Go Tell My People - Governing Your FamilyEditor's note: Granted, this was written during M'Cheyne's life time, the early 1800s, but it seems to be that same train of thought that many in Evangelical Christianity and Quiverfull still cling to, that an 'unsaved' father and man has no care or love for their family, which is a complete lie. Religious thought that is a falsehood does no one any good.  … [Read more...]

If It Was So Bad, Why Did You Stay?

Image from When Church  Hurts

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsOnce in a while, I get this question. It’s not so different from years ago when I asked my mother the same thing.My father died of colon cancer when I was three years old. My mother rarely spoke of him except to say that his death was the best thing that could have happened to us – his four children. Back in those days, you didn’t challenge or question adults, so I would listen to her comment and wonder what she meant. Was it because he was so ill or so maimed by his disease (he lost most of his intestines and wore a colostomy bag) that it would have been difficult for us? That was my assumption.Then, when I was about twenty yea … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Pampering Your Child is Not Love?

quotingquiverfull

by J.C. Ryle from his book Training Children: It Starts With Love as quoted by Kelly Crawford of Generation CedarEditor's note: Why is it that every time some Quiverfull cultural enforcer or speaker starts talking of training children that they immediately demonize the child, such as Voddie Baucham did yesterday in R.L. Stollar's 'The Child as Viper'? There's no room for simply loving your children, participating in life with your children without a constant subcontext of evil, no room for the freedom to make mistakes or learning opportunities, or those moments when you lovingly indulge your child because you love them and want to show that. It's all beat the evil out or deny that child … [Read more...]

Image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerNo March For Life Day would be complete without TLC's Duggar family making an appearance. I don't know if they are in Washington D.C. today marching on the National Mall, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit. But they attended and participated in a big way with a March For Life event on Saturday in Little Rock, Arkansas. They blogged about it on their website and produced a video as well. … [Read more...]

Image from Homeschoolers Anonymous

by R.L. Stollar - Community Coordinator for Homeschoolers Anonymous. Cross posted from Homeschoolers AnonymousEditor's note: A very long read but worthwhile.

If you prefer to download and print the article for more convenient reading, you can view and download the article as a PDF here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Ready For Anything?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson, wife of Steven L Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church on her blog Are They All Yours? - Oh My, My, Where To Start?Editor's note: Ever since reposting the warning to Steven L. Anderson that claims Israelis are coming to perform vivisection on Zsuzsanna and the children I've been sort of worried, combing through the news reports of homicides in Tempe, hoping their names do not pop up. So far, so good. While I dislike intensely their theology I would never wish anything horrible upon even this family.Then this morning I ran across this posting in Zsuzsanna's blog where she's irately answering a comment critical of her and she had this to say back in 2010 … [Read more...]

Helpmeet

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideWe are at the last section of the Leah/David courtship where Leah shares her post-marital advice. Post-marriage thoughts: No Regrets Do you know how nice it is when we look through family photo albums at Christmas to never see David with another girl? No. I assume Leah means with another girlfriend, but either way, seeing a photo of your husband with an ex shouldn't be traumatic. … [Read more...]
