Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Are Called To Judge Others?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - On Judging, Hating and Name CallingEditor's note: So apparently Nancy Campbell is not the only Quiverfull Evangelical that will admit to judging people and claiming it's Biblical and what God designed them to do. Steven L. Anderson's wife Zsuzsanna thinks the exact same way. Not surprised because it seems like the ones that are the most judgmental usually find Bible verses to support their own not so nice behaviors. Zsuzsanna also thinks it's okay to openly hate others and call them names. … [Read more...]

Of all the things a pastor could or should be worried about, Gray is concerned about women wearing what he perceives to be men’s clothing. Gray write … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So God Visits Women Also During Rape and Incest?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Would You Like God to Visit You?Editor's note: Clearly Nancy is only referring to conception of a baby during marriage. But what about all the women who get pregnant from forced sex, date rape, violent sexual assaults or from being sexually abused by a family member? Where is God when those types of conceptions are happening. Following her reasoning either God isn't involved directly in conception or He is all about forced sex as well as marital sanctioned sex. Which is it? … [Read more...]

“How To Win Over Depression” – review 1 – 27

samantha

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Before I get to what Tim had to say in the first two chapters, I want to begin by making sure we’re all on the same page, especially since Tim is going to confuse this issue in very serious ways. First, there are different kinds of depression. There’s major or clinical depression (which can also be chronic,) mild depression, seasonal affective disorder, and the depression that is a part if bipolar disorder (as well as others). Tim doesn’t distinguish between any of these, and his reasoning for why he mixes all of these up will become clear once we’re further into the book. However, the book focuses on helping people who have … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Get In A Rut In Your Marriage?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Outdo One AnotherEditor's note: Wow, that's some advice. Not necessarily bad advice, but advice from Nancy's generation that has nothing to do with living as a committed, submitted Quiverfull wife. The thing is with this advice is it can rebound in two bad ways, 1 - if you really don't 'feel' the feelings of overwhelming love towards your spouse he's going on pick up on the fact that you're doing this out of rout obedience and not genuine affection Let's be real here, in a marriage there are going to be those days when you don't feel that over the top love sensation you felt in the beginning, there are seasons and there's nothing wrong with that. … [Read more...]
