reluctant

by Anthony (husband of Adeye -No Greater Joy Mom) from his blog No Greater Joy Dad - Conversation With a Reluctant Husband RH:  But the source of stress isn’t always the kids.  It’s the finances that help pay for the kids.ANTHONY:  Aren’t you putting the cart before the horse?  If you are open to the Lord merely asking you to adopt, don’t you think He’ll take care of the finances?  If God asks us to do something, don’t you think He’ll pay for it?RH:  That sounds a bit pie-in-the-sky, doesn’t it?ANTHONY:  It does only if you are the god of your own finances.  In all that we do, we trust in the Lord, don’t we? Why is our financial future any different? … [Read more...]

Apostate: Jeremy Bentham (Chapter 7) AKA Kevin Swanson on Homosexuality. Again.

bentham

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground Trigger Warning/Content note: Homophobia, hatred, denial, and emotionally abusive language. I return to review Kevin Swanson’s book Apostate. This time, we turn to chapter 7, entitled “Forming the Humanist Ethic.” This chapter focuses primarily on Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) with some discussion of John Stuart Mill (1806-1873), and Bertrand Russell (1872-1970). I have begun to notice a few trends in Apostate. Each chapter highlights a different apostate, but it also highlights a different “sin” or current issue that Swanson wants to emphasize, condemn or rant about. For example: Descartes’ focused on the sin of fortification. Locke … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Is Using Accountability Software “Trusting In The Lord”?

accountability1

Remember last week when we posted an account by The Joy Filled Wife of how her husband harangued her over a piece of bread and other bad abusive behaviors he exhibited while addicted to internet pornography?  Over on the Always Learning blog - by Lori Alexander - there is a piece about how Joy Filled found out her husband was using pornography because the accountability software installed on his computer sent her an email with info about how many links he visited and how long he spent surfing these links. While NLQ isn't condoning addictions or pornography it does beg the question - Is it right or moral to monitor your significant others internet usage? What do you think?Lori also has … [Read more...]

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideThe adage "the road to Hell is paved with good intentions" has been repeating in my mind since I started looking into Tommy Musser's death.  Susanna and Joe Musser had the best of intentions when they started down the road of adopting Tommy.  Their intentions, while good, have landed their entire family in hell.Tommy Musser died. His mother made a mistake.  Not a malicious mistake or egregious neglect like Tommy had known in the past, but still a mistake that lead to his death.Joseph, Daniel, Joshua, Laura, Jane, Katie, John Michael, Peter, James,  Stephen, Verity and Benjamin Musser lost a brother. I feel a great deal of empa … [Read more...]

Apostate: Chapters 1 and 2

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground This series reviews Kevin Swanson’s book Apostate. I will try to have one review out a weekend. See also my discussion of the Preface and Chapter 3. Kevin Swanson’s book Apostate devotes a separate chapter to different men that he believes destroyed the Christian west. However, before he discusses those men, he spends two chapters introducing the material. What initially struck me is that he repeatedly (as in dozens of times) refers to those who disagree with him as humanists without ever defining the word humanist or humanism. Instead of defining his term, Swanson spends time to mock humanists for Harry Potter, homosexuality, vampir … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Discretion and the Jewel in the Pig’s Nose

jeweled pig

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 188—189Here we begin the chapter titled “To Be Discreet.” Debi of course starts by quoting Titus 2 once again, given that she is going through it’s pieces one by one and the phrase “that they may teach the young women . . . to be discreet” is the subject of this chapter. She then defines “to be discreet”:To be discreet: Prudent; wise in avoiding error and in selecting the best means to accomplish a purpose; circumspect, courteous, polite, honest dealings.There’s nothing terribly wrong with that. Now, though, I’m bracing myself for Debi’s spin on it, because Debi so very frequently take … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mormons Worship Satan?

mormon apron

by Steven L. Anderson pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church from his personal blog - Satanic Rituals of the Mormons Exposed They also place themselves under the curse of Lucifer at other times in the ceremony by making covenants promising not to commit various sins. Then Lucifer makes it clear that if they do not live up to every covenant they make in the Temple that day, they will be under his power (42:52-43:05). Since everyone is going to sin at some point, they are obviously going to be under the power of Lucifer according to this ceremony. One of the things they promise not to do is "laugh loudly." (50:07-50:17) What in the world?! A Mormon was at my house recently and laughed loudly, … [Read more...]
