Quoting Quiverfull: Making Jokes Leads To Infidelity?

quotingquiverfull

by Ben Reaoch from John Piper's Desiring God - Life Is Short, Love Your SpouseEditor's note: While most of the advice on how to avoid having an affair is reasonable and good this little bit about humor is just sort of out there. I'm always amazed at the situations that extreme Christians claim can cause you to fall into sin. If every single thing on this planet causes you to sin then what options do you have? Infidelity is a conscience choice, not some random event that happens to you without your permission. Man up about the reality of it please. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is a Man’s Infidelity Always The Wife’s Fault?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the sadder things that has happened after Josh Duggar's infidelity was exposed is the number of Christians expressing the idea that a wife is always responsible when the husband has sex with someone else during their marriage. It's an idea that has been mentioned even in the mainstream media, that poor heartbroken betrayed Anna Duggar is going to be blaming herself and it's likely the entire family will blame her. Like she doesn't have enough trauma and pain in her life this unBiblical theology point is going to add to that. It's already … [Read more...]

Vyckie

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ FounderFrom her Facebook page answering this Craigslist rant:to the people and supporters of the Quiverfull Cult (United States)You incestuous brainwashed bastards should all be taken out and beaten within an inch of your lives! The sickest part is that you get away with the shit you do because of your so called "christian" values. Personally, I believe all pedophiles should be shot or hung! People had better wake up before these "christian" nutbags get ahold of your children!Someone in Seattle is super pissed ... the outrage is understandable, but also misguided. I'm going to keep saying this until somebody actually hears me: … [Read more...]

Christians Taught Me I Can’t Trust My Deceitful Heart

samantha

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comThe heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9 That verse got quoted at me … well, a lot. Looking back, it seems to be one of the most common refrains of my childhood, right along with “foolishness is bound in the heart of a child.” Looking back, I’m unsure how these concepts got tied to things like honor your father and mother and in the multitude of councilors there is wisdom and your word is a lamp unto my feet but somehow, they did. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Elsie Dinsmore Should Have Been Beaten?

quotingquiverfull

by Susan Zakula from Butter and Honey - Elsie Dinsmore--An EnigmaEditor's note: While I haven't personally read the Elsie Dinsmore books I know that many of you have and that the series is a favorite in the world of homeschooling and quiverfull. Several of our early writers have mentioned the Dinsmore books being the approved literature of their childhoods. So I was surprised to see Butter and Honey giving old Elsie such a harsh treatment. Seems like if you're not reading Nancy Campbell, Debi Pearl or the Bible you're reading forbidden literature, including poor harmless Elsie Dinsmore. What a world of fine literature the Butter and Honey ladies are missing out on! Yet again the answer … [Read more...]

Ex-Homeschooler Fashion

latebloomer

by Latebloomer cross posted from her blog Past Tense, Present ProgressiveAs a former fundamentalist homeschooled kid, one of many aspects of life that I've had to do a lot of catch up in is fashion.  I grew up choosing clothing based solely on modesty, which in my circles meant that I was shopping in clothing sections meant for the elderly and basically wearing fabric sacks.  Often, I had to make things for myself when even the grandmotherly clothing options failed me.  Everything I wore was at least 4 sizes too big and several inches too short, and I had no idea about choosing colors that complemented my skin tone, no idea about hair, no idea about makeup, no idea about skin and nail ca … [Read more...]

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays.

The parents were unhappy he was being exposed to 'inappropriate' content.Here's what the writers at the Christian Post had to say about allowing anyone, much less teenagers, to read the GoT series: … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 27 – 44

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha Field.ComThis chapter introduces us to the methodology that Nancy will be using through the rest of Lies Women Believe. If you’ve read the book before you’re probably familiar with “Eve’s diary,” where Nancy fictionalizes an autobiographical telling of Eve’s life, starting with the day she’s exiled from the Garden. The first time I read this in college, I actually skipped these sections because I found them boring– Nancy’s strength isn’t narrative writing. … [Read more...]

Yes, it's from a Christian perspective.thoughts by a Christian guy working around the world on global gender issues..."As men, and men who are Christ followers, we have a LOT of work to do to understand what our Godly calling is, how we understand ourselves, and how we treat women. At its heart, this work is a work of the imagination: we must re-imagine who we are, and who God intends us to be, as men, and as men in relationship to women. Doing this work is very very … [Read more...]
