Patriarchal Ideas in Modern Culture: Adrian Peterson’s Child ‘Discipline’

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFor all our conversations here at NLQ over the horrible child abuse disguised as discipline you'd hope that the world outside of the fundamentalist evangelical Christian bubble would be free of this abuse, that parents would realize that most studies on physical violence as discipline show it does more harm than good. Sadly that's not the case.  This weekend the news proved yet again how pervasive these harmful patriarchal bad theology really is. The NFL's Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on charges of 'reckless or negligent injury to a child' by a grand jury in Texas. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So Frozen Embryos Are Babies Too?

Remember the recent Quoting Quiverfull that our founder Vyckie Garrison commented on? The lady who already has adopted children and special needs children who is going to behaving more babies from frozen embryos of someone else where the other embryos resulted in children with profound disabilities? Apparently the Internet and it's commenters have given her some push-back instead of showering her with praise for her sacrifices.

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.

Matthew 18 and Spiritual Abuse

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsI have been asked a few times over the last several months to do a blog post on Matthew 18:15-17, where Jesus teaches about what to do if a member of a Christian group is committing wrongs that are harmful enough that they cannot be overlooked.  Here's the text, from the 2011 NIV: “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they r … [Read more...]
