Quoting Quiverfull: Stay At Home Mothers Must Control Their Thoughts?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Do You Have It All Together?Editor's note: Nancy has put together a list of how mothers need to be in order to be good Christian moms who are staying at home raising their children. Not all of her rules are listed below, just a few, but most of them boil down to the same thing: Trust God while you control your thoughts you selfish selfish women! I hate to tell her, but moments of negative thoughts, occasional freaking out, and admitting you don't always have it together is not failure. It's being a normal imperfect member of the human race and perfectly understandable. We're not designed to be perfect fembots! … [Read more...]

Movies such as God is Not Dead are built around the notion that the Christian gospel has the power to brings atheists to their knees. Never mind the fact that these Evangelical fantasies are about as real as the scenes found in countless porn movies. While I can point to countless Evangelicals who are now atheists, rare are atheists who become Christians. When people tell me that they were atheists before they embraced the wonderful, matchless grace of Jesus, I question them as t … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Government Wants Your Child to be Evil?

by Anonymous at Ladies Against Feminism - A Little Mother Prevents Big BrotherEditor's note: So now they are claiming that mothers are a powerful threat to the government? While research does show that children need strong ties to both their mothers and fathers I fail to see anything out there that indicates that the government wants to raise your children, supersede your parental oversight, or holds any grand conspiracy to separate children from their parents. It's more good Christian martyrbating going on. … [Read more...]

10 Reasons Calvinism Was Attractive to Me

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundI grew up evangelical, but became a Calvinist when I was 16, and eventually started attending the Reformed Baptist church. Here’s a 10 reasons I was attracted to Calvinism.1. It made more sense from a fundamental, literal interpretation of the Bible. The Bible says, “and all those who were appointed to eternal life believed.” What else could this mean other than some were appointed and others not?2. Calvinism took fear out of hell.
