Quoting Quiverfull: Fathers Matter Little In Raising Godly Children?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Your Powerful InfluenceEditor's note: Nancy seems to be dismissing the important of a father in the lives of children, denying all that patriarchy blathering she's done for years now. So, which is it? Fathers and husbands are all powerful and must be obeyed, or it's alright to not bow to them if they aren't being what you would consider a 'Good Christian Man'? I am confused. … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 27 – 44

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha Field.ComThis chapter introduces us to the methodology that Nancy will be using through the rest of Lies Women Believe. If you’ve read the book before you’re probably familiar with “Eve’s diary,” where Nancy fictionalizes an autobiographical telling of Eve’s life, starting with the day she’s exiled from the Garden. The first time I read this in college, I actually skipped these sections because I found them boring– Nancy’s strength isn’t narrative writing. … [Read more...]

John Piper and Satan: Equating Homosexuality With Enslaving and Raping Girls

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserThe supernatural monster who orchestrates the kidnapping, enslaving, and thousand-fold drugging, selling, raping, and killing of girls around the globe, is the same one who has masterminded the murderous cultural delusion — from the highest court to the lowest porn-flick — that the practice of sodomy is delightful, not deadly. John Piper, August 3, 2015Charismatic Calvinist and Christian hedonist John Piper recently said Satan, a fictional being from the Christian Bible, is out to deceive and destroy the masses. But praise be to Jesus, we have John Piper, former pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, wat … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Silencing Your Feelings Against Your Husband?

by Peaceful Wife from her blog Peaceful Wife - "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" - Finding Victory Over Feelings of InsecurityEditor's note: And a third woman quoted by Biblical Gender Roles to prove his dangerous take on the role of women and their petty female problems (as he sees it.) While it's a good thing to feel secure and not fall apart in doubt every single time your husband fails to bring you flowers or doesn't hold the door open for you, telling someone to not have feelings is never a good thing. One of the most harmful things in the extreme reaches of the church is when people are told to deny all their own feelings. Feelings are there for a reason, denying them only leads to … [Read more...]

NLQ Review: The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOkay NLQers. I know this book has not much to do with what we talk about here at No Longer Quivering, but bear with me. It does in the sense that it was written by Timothy Dailey of the Moody Bible Institute and he works at, surprise, surprise, Josh Duggar's former employer - The Family Research Council. This is another book review for Patheos.~~~~~~~~~After reading The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings by Dr. Timothy Dailey one thing stood out to me in glaring neon - Boy, that tricky Satan is one very busy fellow with hoofs stuck in all sorts of pies. In fact, that is the main point of the entire book, anything that … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Even Completely Covering Up Can Be Immodest?

by Christy Peterson from A Lovely Calling - ModestyEditor's note: So now extremist Christianity and Quiverfull are seeking to move the goalposts yet again on modesty? It's not enough to cover up almost completely, you now cannot wear anything that makes you stand out or draws attention to you. But isn't that what many of the adherents to the Christian modesty people do, stand out from the crowd as oddly dressed? So confusing. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Michael Says Public School Stressed Out Kids Brains?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - What Age?Editor's note: Michael is right about one thing in this piece - learning to read is part developmental function. But his comparison between regular schools, both public and private and homeschooling is not so cut and dried. More fear tactic than anything else. … [Read more...]

What TLC’s Duggar Family and Charlie Manson’s The Family Have in Common

by Suzanne TitkemeyerLately I've taken to watching NBC's new show "Aquarius" It's set roughly in 1967-1968 time frame and deals with the Manson Family's early years. Plus it's a good solid cop procedural, and you know how I love a cop procedural show. The two lead cops are a straight-laced 1950s style cop named Hodiak and his younger hippie-esque counterpart Shafe. And yes, some of the stories are mixed up with law enforcement and the Manson Family. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Will Wilt If You Do Not Embrace Motherhood Right Now?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Which One Are You? Wilting, Surviving or Flourishing?Editor's note: More pushing of the old guilt buttons and making any woman that isn't overjoyed at being a housewife and a mother of many feel guilty as can be. It's what Nancy specializes in, at least when she's not hiding what happened to her African adoptees. Happy, Happy, Happy or you get the hose! … [Read more...]

You can read the skipped parts at the original site if you're into self flagellation. … [Read more...]
