Quoting Quiverfull: Feminists Substituting Government For Husbands?

by Meadow, one of Nancy Campbell's granddaughters from Above Rubies - A Husband or the Government?Editor's note: Looks like the illogical apple didn't fall far from the tree. Be sure to go to Above Rubies to read the entire post. I wish I could quote it in full here but there's not enough room. She starts out well, then veers into completely misunderstanding much of feminism. All the while claiming she 'loves' her feminist sisters out in the world. No, dear, feminism is not merely transferring some need to be cared for from a man to a government. It's more about not needing others to take care of you at all, about being fully an adult with the same rights of determination as male adults. … [Read more...]

Distinguishing Doctrine From Behavior

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much GraceI recently pointed out the connection between the Great Commission “Bible-based cult” and Vision Forum through the person of Geoffrey Botkin. The Great Commission group (GC, GCM, GCI, GCAC, etc.) has been classified as a variant group that follows of the shepherding/discipleship/submission doctrine, terms with which many Christians still remain unfamiliar. For the benefit of all, I would like to define these terms in the next few blog posts. Botkin, former Administriative Assistant and business partner of the founder of a very cultic … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Blogging Is IGNORING Your Family?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - Blogging and Neglecting Your FamilyEditor's note: Oh this is just too toxic to completely unpack in one posting, but it's giving off the vibe that Lori thinks only older ladies can or should blog because she's feeling threatened in some way. Huge followings? Books? Touring the country giving speeches? Sounds more like the Green Eyed Monster of envy than any real worry about the unBiblicalness of blogging. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Only You Can Do the Housework?

by Lori Alexander from Always Learning - The Consternation Over HouseworkEditor's note: The beginning of this piece Lori was talking about how something she wrote about women only doing the housework went viral. I cannot find what she's talking about, but it doesn't matter since she's apparently repeating it here again. While she's right that loading and unloading a dishwasher and folding clothes are very quick and easy tasks, it's not clear anywhere in the Bible that either are GENDERED tasks like she claims. Here there are times when my husband has done the dishes and I've mowed the grass. Last night he scrubbed the toilet and vacuumed our guest bedroom while I picked a ton of produce … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Boyfriend is Supposed to Lead You to Christ?

by Raegan Thornhill from Delighted in Him - Wait for the Man Who Preaches You the GospelEditor's note: The purity and courtship crowd come up with some of the most confining rules for friendships and relationships. We see how well this works out when you look at the large number of unmarried daughters like the Botkin girls and look at the fact that Christians have higher divorce rates than non-believers. Why not base your relationship on mutual interests, love and attraction and not worry so much about if you are being lead to Christ? … [Read more...]
