Quoting Quiverfull: Only Christian Men Are Caring Fathers?

quotingquiverfull

by Robert Murray M'Cheyne as quoted by Stephanus Blignaut at Go Tell My People - Governing Your FamilyEditor's note: Granted, this was written during M'Cheyne's life time, the early 1800s, but it seems to be that same train of thought that many in Evangelical Christianity and Quiverfull still cling to, that an 'unsaved' father and man has no care or love for their family, which is a complete lie. Religious thought that is a falsehood does no one any good.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1: Don’t Leave Abusive Husband Ever?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Abusive HusbandEditor's note: This starts with one of Debi's infamous letters, you know, the ones in her books that she claims to have received but sound more like something she has personally written to create a weak strawman she can topple with little effort, just a few swings of her Bible and whip-like words. Tomorrow will be Michael's response to the letter. The response of Debi is pure evil in my book, what do you think?First the letter: … [Read more...]

Is Complaining Really Bad?

Image from Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog What Would Roger Sterling Do?One of the things I still struggle with after leaving my old church is when a sermon series starts and you just know that it has nothing to do with trying to teach people or make them consider an issue they hadn't considered in the past. It has to do only with controlling those same people.I still go to church, but sometimes wonder why. I've heard more sermons than I will ever need in my lifetime. I think I'm almost 'Done With Church' now. … [Read more...]

Guilt, the Essence of Evangelical Christianity

Image by Bruce Gerencser used with permission

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserWhat would the Evangelical Christianity be without guilt?Guilt, despite what preachers say, is the engine that powers the Evangelicalism.Often preachers will try to hide guilt by giving it other names like conviction. But no matter how they try to hide it, guilt plays a prominent part in the day-to-day lives of those who profess to be followers of Jesus Christ.Think about it for a moment. The Bible presents God as a righteous, holy, judging, wrathful, deity. In the Old Testament this God was unapproachable except by a  few chosen people. People who got too close wound up dead. … [Read more...]
