News: Raping For Jesus Because Bible

news

News story came out of Florida in which a man and his wife sexually abused an orphaned girl living in their home from the time she was 13 until 18 years old. Their justification? The Bible. Raping for Jesus.Turns out that the couple, Rob and Marie Johnnson, follow many of the same views as guys like Biblical Gender Roles from the Old Testament that allows multiple 'wives' and believes there is no such thing as marital rape. Thankfully, the law doesn't agree with them or BGR. They've been arrested. … [Read more...]

News: Gloriavale – New Zealand Patriarchal Quiverfull Cult

news

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOne of the British newspapers, the Daily Mail, recently ran an article about a religious group in New Zealand that lives entirely by the New Testament in isolation from society. They call themselves "Gloriavale"Their version of Christianity seems to have more in common with some of the Fundamentalist Ladder Day Saints than most Fundamentalist Christian groups. One of the big distinctions that runs through Gloriavale and FLDS is that a group of 12 men, all church elders, decide who will marry who. No choice is given to the potential brides and grooms. Many times the matched are based mostly on how distantly related they are to avoid birth defects from inbreeding. … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review 11 – 25

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field from her blog Samantha Field.comEditor's note - Be sure and check out the new look at Samantha's newly redesigned blog Samantha Field.Com.This book that Samantha is reviewing is one of the most guilt-inducing and poisonous tomes in the Good Christian Woman canon. In my years in an extreme evangelical church this was one of the books that many ladies I knew read and said it made them feel unworthy or like a failure. Treat it like you would a scorpion or rattle snake and steer clear of it if possible. If your church or Bible study insists you read this please do yourself a favor and either not study the book or if you do read it, realize it's only meant to make you … [Read more...]

News: Jim Bob Duggar Pals Around With Christian Convict

news

by Suzanne TitkemeyerNews that came out yesterday with an accompanying photograph to prove it's more than a rumor is that Jim Bob Duggar went to Mississippi to be there when tax evading scofflaw Kent Hovind was released from prison. I guess since Mississippi is such a hop, skip and a jump from Arkansas when you own a plane.Remember Hovind? He's a big proponent of Young Earth Creationism and started the Dinosaur Adventure Land  in Pensacola, Florida. He pushes the idea that the earth is only maybe six thousand years old instead of the at least fifty thousand years that carbon dating has proven and millions of years old  other scientific methods have proven. That's not the only thing h … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet: Part 10 How Do I Need Thee? (Only Men Have Dreams)

Createdtoneed

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 53-54 Text is in purpleI Need Her to Support My VisionEvery man has a vision, and visions are tenuous and iffy by nature. A man with a vision hopes to surmount difficult circumstances, doing what others think is impossible. A vision will waver like a mirage, sometimes promising cool water and other times looking like shifting sand. Most men lose hope of fulfilling their dreams and settle for a TV series. If you have a vision, you need a helper suited to that vision. It is not necessary for her to believe in it as you do, but she must believe in you. A man can keep his own vision alive if his wife runs his supply line and praises … [Read more...]

When Christians Eat Their Own Wounded – Bill Gothard’s New Website

news

by Suzanne TitkemeyerSeveral different websites and organizations have gone after the very hypocritical IBLP founder Bill Gothard as soon as he emerged back in the public eye. Mr. Gothard is just doing what all the pastors caught with their hands and assorted body parts where they shouldn't be do after the scandal has died down. I think it is also safe to say we're going to also see Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar try to do exactly the same thing within six months, but only after they jettison Josh Duggar due to the pending lawsuit one of his victims filed. … [Read more...]

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: While this is not directly Quiverfull related it's a creepy privacy-invading new thing in mega churches with possible frighting implications and usages. Excerpt from Why Are Churches Using Creepy Face Recognition Technology? by Valerie Tarico: Churches just got a new way to figure out who is sleeping in on Sunday morning: facial recognition software that scans the congregation and records who showed up. Churchix is a product of Skakash LLC, which sells Face-Six for law enforcement, border control, and commercial applications. According to CEO Moshe Greenshpan, in the 4 months since the … [Read more...]

Text is in purple.I Need Her Sensitivity I need her companionship, mercy, and grace. The nature of man is found in the husband and wife's combination.
