Quoting Quiverfull: So Birth Control Pills Are ‘Mini-Abortions’?

Morning-After-Pill

by Steven L Anderson pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church from his blog Steven L. AndersonFor many of us we've wondered for a long time now why the Duggar family and other Fundamentalist Evangelical Christians think birth control pills cause miscarriages and are considered as bad as having an abortion.

Quoting Quiverfull: No Rights or Choice of Your Own?

choosing

by Oswald Chambers from his book "My Utmost For His Highest"Found in the Above Rubies archive in an article 'Can God Provide? My Best Investment' used as rationalization to not use 9 years of college outside of the home. The writer sacrificed her education to be a stay at home homeschooling mother most of the time. "...if you are living the life of faith you will exercise your right to waive your rights, and let God choose for you." Is choosing to do something else after investing that much time, effort and money in your education letting God choose for you or are you choosing? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Tell Others Anything ‘Not Nice’ About Your Husband?

shutyourmouth

by Erin Harrison from No Greater Joy magazine - Virtuous ConversationTalking bad about our husbands to others can spoil his reputation among the brethren. When a wife unloads to friends about how unreasonable or controlling he is, it may make her feel better for the moment, but it will spoil his good name for a long time to come. I have had two sisters in Christ continually cry to me about how horrible their husbands treated them. One wife would call me in desperation, telling me that she could not take his controlling nature any longer. She felt she was not allowed to go anywhere or do anything but serve him. It did not matter that she had talents and dreams. She was forced to set her … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Wear a Sack

wearasack1

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 201—202We’re in Debi’s chapter on being “chaste,” and not surprisingly, we’re discussing modesty. I actually found this passage really interesting myself, because there are several times when Debi departs from the conventional evangelical script—though not in good ways.A chaste woman is a modest woman. God speaks of a woman maintaining her chastity and purity by the clothes she wears. “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godlines … [Read more...]

The idea that a woman isn't 'feminine' if she doesn't follow outdated cultural mores?Who gets to define what is feminine? Is this a cultural construct or an individual matter? … [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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Personal Agency For Women?

talkingback

by pastor Steve L. Anderson from the blog Ramblings of Sheldon Listening to women who talk back and argue with you is like experiencing Chinese water torture and Waterboarding. Given the choice, I’d rather experience Chinese Water Torture. Bonus material from The Friendly Atheist from that same sermon: You see all these celebrity women and music stars who are “independent” and “I can do it all myself” types! That is not who I want my children emulating, because “I don’t want them to think that is what a woman should strive to be. The Bible says a woman should strive to have a meek and quiet spirit…” … [Read more...]
