Tim Bayly Is Tardy To Our Hen Party!

men-of-quality-women-rights

by Suzanne TitkemeyerEvangelical pastor/blogger Tim Bayly just discovered Vyckie Garrison's life story and *gasp* is busy clutching his pastoral pearls as he realizes that women are speaking out! Guessing sometimes information outside of the CPM bubble takes a while to trickle down past all those filters woven from old Bible pages.Women folks! They are speaking out 'online' and even worse, 'in real life', to the men folks! He can't understand how Vyckie could possibly have such a problem with God the Father and Christianity in general even after reading all the ways in which her own beliefs harmed her. It must be feminism according to him and his readers/commenters.He had this to … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Respecting Husbands No Matter What?

kinghusband

by Sunshine Mary from her blog Sunshine Mary and the Dragon - Showing Love to Your Husband by Treating Him With RespectMary didn't write any of this. She's quoting Nancy Kennedy's book 'When He Doesn't Believe' and Nancy is quoting Bryan Chapell's book 'Marriage as it's Meant to be' Chapell says a woman isn’t to offer respect just to feed her husband’s ego, however.  It also benefits her as well.  “The more she treasures her husband, the more precious a woman will find their union and the more rewarding their relationship will become to her.  The woman who longs for the bonds of love finds her deepest satisfaction is providing the support that secures the relationship for which she longs … [Read more...]

21 Days of Healing – An Introduction

healing1

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsDecember 20, 2013. That’s the day that my husband received an email from one of the pastor’s of our former church telling us that we were to leave. All because my husband had said that they needed to apologize to me. Until the moment when he insisted there needed to be an apology, it appeared that there was hope. For communication. For a meeting. The anticipation of a God-honoring conclusion to years of spiritual abuse. … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” Review: 86 – 106: ‘Taking out the Trash’

trash

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons I wish you all could read the entirely of this chapter because it is ironic. One of these days I’ll have to create a whole series of posts dedicated to page 89, where Mark defines repentance, comparing that to his actual real-life behavior, because it is hysterical. Not only does he fail his own list of “pastoral requirements,” he also bombs at his own definition of repentance– and you can read the whole thing here. … [Read more...]
