Quoting Quiverfull: Not Having Babies is Equal to Arguing With God?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Dare We Argue With God? God's creation of our bodies is perfect, yet it seems that man often thinks he knows better than God. Our great Creator blessed us with a womb to conceive and bring forth children. And yet many women hardly want to acknowledge they have a womb.

It's not wrong to be concerned about Ebola in our country, but it is pretty wrong to fear-monger and hope it kills off those that don't agree with you.) … [Read more...]

News: Child Evangelism Fellowship Preaching to Kids at Parks and Pools

It looks like the "Good News Club" run by Child Evangelism Fellowship is training and organizing to proselytize to children specifically in Portland, Oregon parks and pools and in other communities without the consent of those children's parents.  Turns out the Supreme Court has ruled that this  group's activity on school grounds is legal, so it goes without saying that they are allowed to approach children in parks and other public places children gather.Last year our own Vyckie Garrison wrote an excellent examination of what Child Evangelism Fellowship is all about - Large Family Christian Homeschooling and Child Evangelism Fellowship that dovetails nicely with what Raw Story and The Ne … [Read more...]
