Motley Crue and Christian Fundamentalists would get on great

Tommy Lee in 2012 (Photo credit: Wikimedia commons) It seems relevant to mention that Lee has also served time for spousal battery

by Jonny Scaramanga cross posted from his blog Leaving FundamentalismI love Mötley Crüe. They were one of the bands that were instrumental in helping me to break out from the fundamentalist bubble I grew up in. “Dr Feelgood” was incredible; it made the Christian music I used to love seem anaemic and pathetic by comparison. And when I finally got to the point where I could sing “Shout at the Devil” without fearing that I might burn in hell, it was a huge personal breakthrough. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Blaming Disasters on “God’s Wrath”?

atanus

From The Examiner - GOP Candidate claims autism and dementia are God's punishmentSuzanne Atanus, Republican candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in Illinois, claims autism and dementia are God’s punishment for abortion and LGBT rights. Atanus claims that God is “angry” with the United States and has sent scourges like autism and dementia to punish the American people, according to a report published Jan. 22 by the Chicago Daily Herald. … [Read more...]

International House of Prayer: One Year Later After the Death of Bethany Deaton

Does anyone remember the death of IHOP intern Bethany Deaton? More than a year ago we mentioned her death in several different pieces and said we would be doing any followup to the case we saw.In the time that has passed since Bethany was found murdered in her van not much has changed. Her husband, Tyler Deaton, has moved to another area and taken a job as a teacher, Micah Moore,  the man that confessed has gone to trial and Mike Bickle distanced himself and IHOP from the Deatons, even going so far as to teach on what constitutes a cult in the wake of allegations about Tyler Deaton's group. Rolling Stone Magazine has researched and written an in depth article about the death of Bethany … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Defending The Pearls and “To Train Up a Child”?

TTUAC

by Paige Coleman of Delivering Women From the Snares of Death blog - Pearls Before SwineFor those of you who left nasty comments online, please be adequately informed before you raise your voice in protest. Humbly consider what you say to your children and what you say to others.  If you call for the banning of “To Train up a Child” because of the actions of those who read it, then by following your own logic, I could call for the banning of the examiner’s website.  After all, the author of the article clearly provoked you to anger.  Let’s blame him instead of you!  If Michael Pearl is responsible for Carri Williams’ anger, then the examiner (sic) is responsible for yours. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Half Mothering?

worriedmother

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Half Mothering or Full Mothering? Christ, who lives in us is "prophet, priest, and king." I believe that every father should be a prophet to his family, seeking God for His ways and speaking God's counsel to His family. But, we as mothers also have a daily responsibility to speak the counsel of God to our children. Motherhood is even more than nurturing, feeding, and caring for our children. It is our God-given duty to feed their souls and spirits as well as their bodies. Even more so. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Healthy Co-Dependency?

codependent

by Rebecca Belcher Morecraft at Ladies Against Feminism and Chalcedon Presbyterian Church The separate roles God created “in the beginning” for each sex have largely been spurned by our culture and substituted with a false idea of equality that in no way resembles God’s original plan, when He created woman from the rib of man and arranged for future humans to spring from the womb of woman, thus establishing a healthy co-dependency for the continuance of life. … [Read more...]

Does God Love Us Unconditionally?

noconditions

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way ForwardAsk an Evangelical Christian if God loves humans unconditionally and they will likely respond with a resounding YES! God loves us no matter what we do, they will say. If the person is familiar with the Bible, they might even quote Romans 8:38,39: For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Taking The Cup?

chagal

A review of the "To Be One" DVD about Courtship/Betrothal/Marriage by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine My only reservation in recommending this video is the Lindvall story. I want to be gracious to the Lindvalls, but I was quite troubled by their story. My first concern was the process of choosing a wife for Timothy. According to all the men in the story, the Lord had "told" each of them that Brittany was the one for Timothy. The process of winning Brittany seemed to lack any emotion or feeling on the part of the prospective bridegroom, because the Lindvalls believe love should follow … [Read more...]

by Kevin Swanson of Generations With Vision from his Facebook On yesterday's show, we found that school shootings have doubled over the last year, and the rate is 150 times what it was in the 19th century. However, the good news is that you can find bullet-proof backpacks for your children. Also, for only $950, you can get bullet-proof vests for children. Or... you can homeschool. … [Read more...]
