Patriarchal Ideas in Modern Culture: Adrian Peterson’s Child ‘Discipline’

gettingaswitch

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFor all our conversations here at NLQ over the horrible child abuse disguised as discipline you'd hope that the world outside of the fundamentalist evangelical Christian bubble would be free of this abuse, that parents would realize that most studies on physical violence as discipline show it does more harm than good. Sadly that's not the case.  This weekend the news proved yet again how pervasive these harmful patriarchal bad theology really is. The NFL's Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on charges of 'reckless or negligent injury to a child' by a grand jury in Texas. … [Read more...]

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideSorry for the absence, folks!  I started a graduate school program and had a few action packed weeks.     Debi's about to launch into some truly unique theology today - and she leads off by forgetting to cite the Bible.  Yay for editoral prowess! "When God saw how lonesome poor old Adam was, he said, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make a help meet for him." [Ed. Note: Genesis 2:18] All females agree with God that it is not good for those wonderful eligible men to be alone!  Some men are slower to come to see their need for us tender sweeties than others, but most all men finally come to a place where they are … [Read more...]

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 211—222I am now armed with a fresh copy of Created To Be His Help Meet and ready to resume my reviews. For reasons completely unknown to me, my previous copy never reappeared. I have utterly no idea where it is. But lest my readers worry, I bought my fresh copy used.Leaving Home by Phone, E-mail, and Chat Rooms “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully” (I Timothy 5:14). God’s will for a young woman, according to the verse above, is that she guide the house and provide no occasion to bring re … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” by Mark Driscoll: review xi-xiv Preface and Introduction

preaching

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Ok, so I read four pages of Real Marriage this morning. There’s eleven chapters, so with that plus covering the preface and introduction today, I’m going to try to wrap this up in three months and avoid as much of the “multiple weeks dedicated to one chapter” thing that happened a few times with Captivating. I don’t think you or I could handle it. Like Fascinating Womanhood and Captivating, Real Marriage will inevitably have statements that I agree with, mostly because they’re common sense. And, the first time I read these pages this morning, I thought I could agree with a good portion of what he said in the preface, which i … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Do Women Have Types?

debi

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismYou’re probably wondering where today’s Created To Be His Help Meet post is. I have some sad news—there won’t be one, technically speaking. I cannot find my copy of the book, and believe me, I have looked everywhere! I have ordered a new copy (you can get them cheap if you buy them used) in case I do not find my copy, so your regularly scheduled installment will be back next Friday.I’m not going to let this break in my review series go to waste, though. I want to take some time to address something that has come up in Aletha’s reviews—the idea that women, too, come in three types. This idea does not appear in Created To Be Hi … [Read more...]
