Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The Priest Part 4

little snappy

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideIn the last installment on the Priestly Man, Debi makes marriage sound nice.  Her advice is actually pretty good in this section."Your Priestly Mr. Steady will not expect you to cook, clean and serve him, but he might enjoy being in the kitchen cooking with you. " *looks around for the horsemen of the Apocalypse* A husband who won't expect his wife to be a domestic servant? A man who likes to cook?  Will the wonders never cease? Welcome to the 20th century, Debi.  Perhaps you'd like to join the rest of us in the 21st century?  Egalitarianism is a good deal for both parties."If he does, and if you are a perfectionist, unhap … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Mel’s Interjection on Traits of Narcissists

narcissist

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideI hate a few chapters of Debi's book.  The Kingly Man Chapter is one of them.  It's so incredibly toxic.  The whole chapter is essentially an apologia for narcissistic men and an instruction manual for how to be an enabler instead of a wife. To counter-balance some of the toxicity, I read the book "The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists" by Eleanor Payson. This book helped me clarify some of the traits in Michael Pearl that are unhealthy and also recognize Debi as a covert narcissist as well.  I'll be referring back to the book throughout the King Chapter, but also later in the book since I think we can determine some inter … [Read more...]

One of them was recently convicted of child sexual abuse - Chris Chandler. Chandler is guilty of doing something similar to what IFB pastor Jack Schaap has done: he used his position counseling sexual abuse victims to prey upon them and re-victimize them. … [Read more...]

animaniacs

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideIn the next installment on Priestly Men, Debi paints picture of what life for the wife of a Priestly Man is like with a huge interruption by a Visionary Man on a side note. "The key is to know you man.  In what image has God created him?  You, as his help meet, will need to  learn to conform to your man.  God's Word says, in Hebrews 13:8,  "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever." On the 90's TV show Animanics, there was a reoccurring segment called "The Wheel of Morality".  The characters would pull out a giant game-show wheel, spin it and read a canned moral that printed off. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Making Them Obey?

obey

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - How Can They Do It? I know, dear mothers, it's easier said than done to teach our children to obey. One mother wrote that her young daughter flatly refuses to obey her! What on earth can we do? We are not dealing with robots. Do you sometimes wish they were robots who would just do everything you asked? Instead, we are dealing with flesh and blood. Yes, I said the word, flesh. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Cling on to That Husband All the Time!

holdinghands

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Is Your Best Friend? When you have an opportunity to go out to enjoy yourself, who would you rather go with? Some girlfriends? Or your husband? We will always want to go with our best friend, won't we?In Titus 2:4 the older women are exhorted to teach the young women to "love their husbands." The Greek word used here is not agape (God's divine love which goes beyond the love of man). It is not "eros" which is sexual love. We need to experience both these in our marriage, but the one God uses in this passage is "philandros." This is a friendly, affectionate love. … [Read more...]
