Is the Trinity a Sex Orgy? Part 4 of Tim Keller on Sex

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace **This September is book month at, but today, I want to discuss two books that I don't recommend purchasing.  I feel bad enough because of the necessity to purchase them myself to read them with my own eyes.** Sex and the Trinity?  (Continuing the discussion of Tim Keller's views on sex)I didn't intend to include this element of these teachings because I really don't like discussing this aspect of the topic of the Eternal Subordination of the Son Doctrine, but this element keeps surfacing.  In a way, I'm glad to see people discussing the convoluted nature of the doctrine and how bizarre it is when you have t … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cannot Have Male Doctors and Be Modest?

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - The Lust of the EyesEditor's note: Found this gem linked to Biblical Gender Roles blog. Wonder if Anderson feels the same way now that a male doctor saved the life of his wife and youngest child. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Do Evangelical Christians Think It’s Okay To Break The Law?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.I'm sure by now that everyone at NLQ has seen the roiling circus coming out of Kentucky involving country clerk and fundamentalist Christian Kim Davis. Davis refused to issue marriage licenses for same sex marriages even if the highest court in the land ruled that same sex marriage was now legal in all fifty states of the union.  This has caused one crazy media frenzy before Davis was jailed for defying the orders of the court. A few days ago she was released and professional Christians/politicians Ted Cruz and Duggar supporter and Presidential … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Are Property?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender - Why Does God Allow Divorce?Editor's note: BGR true message comes out. Men own women period. Either you're owned by your father or your father has transferred ownership to your husband. Which is why he claims women cannot get a divorce from an abusive husband, because they belong to their husband the say way he might own a boat or a motorcycle or  a bar of soap. BGR thinks we are all just vassals and vessels.The reason for the difference in language is that in marriage a woman was made the property of her husband. A wife could not give her husband a bill of divorce, because she was his property, only he could give her a bill of … [Read more...]

Jack Hyles Gives Advice On How To Raise A Girl

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIn chapter 20 of How to Rear Children, Jack Hyles, former of pastor of First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, gives his advice on making a lady out of girl: The women’s liberation notwithstanding most men still want someone ladylike and feminine for a wife. To be sure, all good Christian men want submissive, feminine, ladylike, and godly wives. Yet, we live in a society which wants to homogenize the sexes. The boys wear make-up and the girls wear blue jeans. The boys wear flowered shirts while the girls wear work shirts. The fad is for the boys to be feminine and the girls to be masculine. C … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Role of the Godly Help Meet is to Receive Chastisement?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender - The Heresy of Skip Moen and His Book "Guardian Angel"Editor's note: This is the long rambling post of BGR where he says women are to 'bare' children and a lot of ridiculous things about the roles of women in the lives of their husbands. He seems to be edging closer to Christian Domestic Discipline here too. What is it with people thinking that they must redefine common terms used in the church and quibble about meanings? … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – How Do You Balance Faith And The Burlesque Of Life?

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book.

Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Deny Your Possibly Gay Son Privacy To ‘Cure’ Him?

by Scared Catholic Mom on Queerity - Scared Christian Mom Asks How To Keep Her Gay Teen PureEditor's note: The big Catholic families are sometimes the first encounter with Quiverfull for those not raised fundamentalist evangelical Quiverfull. While this woman is not promoting Quiverfull ideals she sure sounds like she's the Catholic version of Michael Pearl, trying to control the same sex attraction out of her poor confused teenager. This much control over any child is abusive! This reads like a what not to do for your LBGTQ  child primer. … [Read more...]

Just How ‘Broke’ Are The Duggars? Reality Check Time

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOne of the most maddening things about the main stream media coverage of the Duggar family through the years is the proclivity of the press to take a Duggar rumor and elevate it to 'fact' status while doing exactly zero fact checking. This has been happening since May over the speculation of the Duggar finances and has reached a crescendo this week. Addicting Information added fuel to that rumor this week reporting on fans that now feel like the Duggars are a scamming bunch of grifters that are playing the fans. … [Read more...]

Siding With The Many

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsI often reblog or link to the writings, wisdom, and insights of others, not so much because I couldn’t have said it myself, but simply because I fear that were I to address these issues, it would appear that I am simply trying to argue for myself.  As those of us who are intimately familiar with spiritual abuse, doing so would create an immediate dismissal of my writing simply because I would be perceived as only making an effort to defend myself.  In the world of spiritual abuse, this would result in making me the problem for pointing out the problem. … [Read more...]
