Quoting Quiverfull: That ‘Thing’ For Reindeers?

by Kevin Swanson from Generations With Vision - Discernment and Disney's "Frozen"(Editors note: Although we have covered "Frozen" and all the messages Swanson sees in the film before this is the one where he sees bestiality...out of the abundance of the heart.. well. you know..) I have taken a great deal of criticism for my criticism of the Disney movie, Frozen.  While the heavily-adapted Hans Christian Andersen story may have some merit, let me say it is possible to ruin a film by a single scene and a single line. … [Read more...]

Part 1: A New Hope

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalPlease welcome a great new addition to SASBN - Living Liminal In late 2005, after many years attendance, my husband and I left the church where we had met and been married. We left with sadness because, although we had received from this church much which was good and life-giving, we had come to realize there was no longer a place for us there. (The senior pastor, himself, had declared this to be the case during one of his Sunday morning sermons!)  We knew we were not alone - there had been a steady exodus from this church for some time. The ‘my way or the highway’ approach to church leadership does tend to create casualties. … [Read more...]

There’s No Easy Way to Get “Well”

by Lisa Kerr cross posted from her blog My Cult LifeA little more backstory on why I took an extended break from the blog:I became a recluse. I’m not about to compare myself to J.D. Salinger, but I will say I understand him. If you don’t know, he’s the author of The Catcher in the Rye. As his book’s popularity grew, Salinger withdrew from the public. He published less new work and cut off contact with people. … [Read more...]

Nightline Prime and Purity Balls

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’ve seen a few documentaries about “Purity Balls” (which, every time I say that, my partner sniggers and I glare at him), and some are better than others. ABC’s Nightline Prime 20-minute documentary of the Wilson’s “14th Annual Father-Daughter Purity Ball” is not one of the better ones. The interviewer seemed to be either amused or baffled, and the only questions featured during the program seem to indicate a lack of awareness of what the underlying culture is– although she seemed to be catching on toward the end. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Say What? Hitler Was The Anti-Christ

Caution: Godwinning below. Found on Facebook on a random person's timeline. Posting this as a cautionary example of what can happen when you have very little education and pick up a Bible. Reads like the writer just read a book on Hitler. Is Hitler the Anti-christ? You decide!(Martin Luther a leading/pioneer protestant revolutionary is also from Germany=very good!ATTN: Though this is end time prophetic foreshadowing on my part it does not replace Biblical end time prophesy based on an understanding of Biblical scriptures which understanding is  a gift of the Holy Spirit! … [Read more...]
