carstereo

by Suzanne cross posted from her blog Seeking The LightOver at NLQ in the past few weeks it seems like many of the pieces I'm publishing have to do with not asking for your needs to be met, not disagreeing with your husband's financial decisions or anything else or they will cease to love you or fall victim to the devil.I really don't get that. Especially when it comes to spending money, major and minor purchases. Debi Pearl has stated in her book "Created To Be His Help Meet" that you should never ever under any circumstance voice an opinion on the spending of family funds. According to her the question below is one no wife should ever ask her husband.... 1. Do you feel comfortable … [Read more...]

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideThe adage "the road to Hell is paved with good intentions" has been repeating in my mind since I started looking into Tommy Musser's death.  Susanna and Joe Musser had the best of intentions when they started down the road of adopting Tommy.  Their intentions, while good, have landed their entire family in hell.Tommy Musser died. His mother made a mistake.  Not a malicious mistake or egregious neglect like Tommy had known in the past, but still a mistake that lead to his death.Joseph, Daniel, Joshua, Laura, Jane, Katie, John Michael, Peter, James,  Stephen, Verity and Benjamin Musser lost a brother.

CTBHHM: Wear a Sack

wearasack1

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 201—202We’re in Debi’s chapter on being “chaste,” and not surprisingly, we’re discussing modesty. I actually found this passage really interesting myself, because there are several times when Debi departs from the conventional evangelical script—though not in good ways.A chaste woman is a modest woman. God speaks of a woman maintaining her chastity and purity by the clothes she wears. “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godlines … [Read more...]

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismWhen I was a child and my mother would leave me at a friend’s house or with a sitter, there was one thing she always said right before she left.“Be a good obeying girl.” Of every virtue a child could have, the one my mother prized above all else wasobedience. My mother was influenced by Michael Pearl’s book, To Train Up a Child, which stipulated that obedience should be immediate and without question—and with a smile. Partly I think my mother was attracted to the Pearls’ childrearing teachings because raising twelve children is no easy task, and training children to absolute obedience made things easier for her.For a … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Shouldn’t Say ‘Amen’ in Church?

anderson

by Steve L. Anderston of Faithful Word Baptist Church from a sermon at Youtube of last Sunday's sermon.From this sermon: “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” He quoted I Corinthians 14 as his reason  “Let your women keep silence in the churches, for it is not permitted unto them to speak, but they are commanded to be under obedience as also sayeth the law. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is shameful for women to speak in the church,” … [Read more...]
