Quoting Quiverfull: Thoughts Can Ruin Your Future Marriage?

quotingquiverfull

by Lisa Hallahan from A Lovely Calling and reposted at Whole Magazine - Confessions of a Lusting Christian GirlEditor's note: Whoa! Talk about blaming and shaming! Claiming that thinking sexual thoughts before marriage will ruin or defile your future marriage is so wrong. It's human nature to have feelings and thoughts that don't always line up the way you want and this is veering too close to thought crimes. Why all the fear of thoughts and projecting sin on to others? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Great Reward Earned by Disciplining Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Shalom Pearl Brand from No Greater Joy - Great RewardEditor's note: You know what Shalom is referring to when she uses the word 'mold' when she's talking about training her children? It's a more polite way to refer to using physical force to compel obedience, breaking their spirits. It was done to her and now she's doing it to her children, the cycle of abuse continues, albeit nicely worded now. Giving ugly things newer safer-sounding names doesn't make them any less awful. … [Read more...]

How Fundamentalism Cultivates the ‘Inner Me’ and a Mistrust For Others

lanawideopenground

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundA few weeks ago, Darcy challenged the notion that we should use God to justify our choices. It has really stuck with me. She explains, The me of today doesn’t believe I need to use God to justify my choices.I’ve done that my whole life….used scripture and God and “God’s will” to make decisions and defend them to everyone who thought I was wrong or had an opinion about me. And no matter what the choice was or how well I defended it “from scripture” someone always thought it was wrong. Because they too could defend their belief about my wrongness from scripture. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Jeans and Short Hair Enslave Women?

quotingquiverfull

by Reagan Ramm from Reagan Ram.com - Modesty" A Guy's Opinion Part 2Editor's note: I don't think most of the women I know with short hair, myself included, do it to look 'masculine',to be like guys or because we've embraced a feminist message. Mostly women wear pants, jeans, tee shirts and short hair for comfort or expediency. Sometimes the simplest explanation for something is the correct one. It's not some anti-Christian plot no matter how they spin it. Is masculinity so weak and threatened in the church that it cannot survive anyone doing anything even slightly outside the dictates of fundamentalism? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Constant Child-Rearing Is Rest?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Has A Better Place For YouEditor's note: Doubling down on lack of all understanding of what words actually mean is Nancy Campbell insisting that quivering mothers with broods of children live in rest. Yes, she is talking about a mental/emotional/spiritual rest but it is very different than the realities of serving in a large family. It's easy for Nancy to rest as she has a staff of Above Rubies girl interns doing the hard stuff and before that a pile of African adoptees working, at least before she disappeared them. This is exactly the kind of thinking in quiverfull that will make you lose your mind trying to carry it out another with ten million … [Read more...]

Introduction to the Review Series – “Lies Women Believe”

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragon How to Win Over Depression and Redeeming Love were neck-and-neck in the last poll I did, but since my friend Dani Kelley is doing a review of Redeeming Love, I decided that my next review series would be the runner-up: Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets them Free. In the comments, a lot of you mentioned how toxic this book was for you both personally and in your marriages. I received it as a gift when I was still at Pensacola Christian, and I remember feeling vaguely uneasy about it, although at the time I chalked up that reaction to “being convicted.” … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Silencing Your Feelings Against Your Husband?

quotingquiverfull

by Peaceful Wife from her blog Peaceful Wife - "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" - Finding Victory Over Feelings of InsecurityEditor's note: And a third woman quoted by Biblical Gender Roles to prove his dangerous take on the role of women and their petty female problems (as he sees it.) While it's a good thing to feel secure and not fall apart in doubt every single time your husband fails to bring you flowers or doesn't hold the door open for you, telling someone to not have feelings is never a good thing. One of the most harmful things in the extreme reaches of the church is when people are told to deny all their own feelings. Feelings are there for a reason, denying them only leads to … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Accepting Marriage Equality Will Take Away Your Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Sitting Down or on the Offensive?Editor's note: We've taken a break from Nancy and her fear-mongering about mothers not mothering right. But now she's joining with her husband Colin Campbell of Meat For Men (sounds like the title of male gay porn, doesn't it?) in fear-mongering that God will start destroying America if we do not resist the Supreme Court's decision on marriage equality. She likens it to what Lot did. … [Read more...]

NLQ Review: The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings

paranormalconspiracy

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOkay NLQers. I know this book has not much to do with what we talk about here at No Longer Quivering, but bear with me. It does in the sense that it was written by Timothy Dailey of the Moody Bible Institute and he works at, surprise, surprise, Josh Duggar's former employer - The Family Research Council. This is another book review for Patheos.~~~~~~~~~After reading The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings by Dr. Timothy Dailey one thing stood out to me in glaring neon - Boy, that tricky Satan is one very busy fellow with hoofs stuck in all sorts of pies. In fact, that is the main point of the entire book, anything that … [Read more...]
