Quoting Quiverfull: Treating ‘Disrespect’ With More ‘Disrespect’ Is Biblical?

ohreally

by Mary Sunshine and her commenters at her blog Sunshine Mary and the Dragon - Nip Disrespect in the Bud Before it Blooms into the Flower of RebellionCame across this blog on Facebook on one of the NLQ affiliate sites. Struck by how disrespectfully rude some of the ideas for dealing with disrespect from wifes are. Any man that pulls this crap needs to spend a few nights without 'marital affections' sleeping on the sofa. Respect in marriage is a two way street no matter if you believe in God or the Flying Spaghetti Monster or nothing. You cannot get respect from your spouse by disrespecting them back. Life doesn't work that way no matter what the CPM & QF people think. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sheeple?

sheep

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Foster RelationshipsAll of Nancy's talking about family, forging relationships, looking each other in the eyes and no texting at the dinner tables reminds me of the silly Sprint 'Framily' commercials. Likely Nancy would have a fit over this family. But sometimes families are as individual and weird as the Sprint one. Miss seeing these commercials. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Couch-Potato Christianity & Abortion

prolife

by Chelsen Vicari posted at Ladies Against Feminism, The Christian Post and Juicy EcumenismVicara is making the argument that because everyone is now required to have health insurance during the Affordable Care Act and that some of these insurers cover abortion that means the government is funding abortions now. Something of a stretch, at best. … [Read more...]

Hearing Homeschool Moms’ Thoughts on Faith & Education

hearing

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlySometimes (thankfully more rarely than I expected) I get yelled at on my blog by homeschooling parents. Other times I get absolutely wonderful messages. Lately I’ve had some amazing ones and a couple quasi-nasty ones, and some that may or may not have had me reaching for the tissues because I’d suddenly gotten something in my eye.I’ve realized that the crossroads of faith and education is a particularly fraught space. Well, I’ve actually known this for some time. I used to try to steer clear of it because it was triggering to me, but now I see that it needs to be discussed. It’s a powerful intersection, a space buzzing with a … [Read more...]

Just Get Over It!

shut up

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalImagine you were part of a circle of friends, many of whom you'd known for a long time. You are close, you often spend time together in each other's company. Everyone tells you how much they love you and value you. You feel happy and accepted.Now imagine that things start to change. In subtle, and not-so-subtle, ways you start to feel pressured to conform to expectations you never agreed to. To comply with other people's dictates. Eventually, things become more overt and these friends start to slap you around.You object. … [Read more...]

About Moving On. Or Not

by Kaleesha Williams cross posted from her blog The Lost (And Found) Mind of Kaleesh WilliamsI am no longer a bible-believer.  I suppose it shouldn’t bother me that some christians suppose I was never “saved” or never understood the gospel.  But I was and it does.  For an awfully long time I believed the bible and poured more energy into my supernatural beliefs than most people put into anything besides the Almighty Dollar.   … [Read more...]

Stories of Demons on the Missions Field

excercism

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundGrowing up, my family was not particularly superstitious about demons, ghosts, and spirits. There was a reason for this. We were influenced by the Reformed Tradition. My dad does not believe in a rapture, tribulation, or 1,000 year reign. He believes the 1000 year reign is symbolic of the current age, that Satan and his demons were bound up at the cross, and that they can roar and scare us, but they cannot possess us or hurt us. This does not mean I grew up with no fear of evil forces; indeed, we were taught that we had sin dwelling in our bodies, and that sin was always trying to pull us down. But we did not believe that there were … [Read more...]
