NLQ Question of the Week: Why Live Like You Are In The 1880s?

This is a new series we’re going to start running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.This week's thoughts and questions involve the Quiverfull lifestyle in the wake of the mess with the Naugler family. Granted, the Naugler family does the entire off-the-grid thing very poorly, unlike most Quiverfull families that go off grid. That still doesn't stop the support of the Quiverfull Homeschooling community for this family. Which brings me to this question - Why is it that the lifestyle of living as close to how our pioneer ancestors lived is upheld as the perfect standard in Quiverfull? Bake your own bread, grow your own food, sew y … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Anger in Children is Purely Selfishness?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Angry ChildrenEditor's note: Michael seems to be saying here that if you control your child and everything about their environment then the incidents of anger will be lessened. While I agree that teaching children to deal with their emotions and the things that frustrate them is a very important goal it still seems likely that the switch is not too far off in the world of Micheal Pearl child training. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Declining Birth Rates Dooming Children to Huge Future Burdens?

by Shannon Roberts of Mercator.Net - No One is Winning From the World's Lack of Children as renamed and quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Are Your Children Ready For The Future?Editor's note: Is either posting really making a believable point that not increasing the population will harm our children's future? After reading both I'm still not entirely sure what this terrible 'burden' is because of declining birth rates. Typical Evangelical scare tactics to reinforce compliance with extra Biblical rules and submission roles for women, dominance by men. … [Read more...]

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Young Man Witnessing to Young Lady

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Which One of Us Has Cognitive Dissonance Here?

by Author Unknown from Simple Unhooked Living - RFID: Where The Rubber Meets The Christian RoadEditor's note: Found this blog through it being quoted by Ladies Against Feminism in support of no childhood vaccinations and no big government interference into home-based businesses they love so much. While sustainable living isn't necessarily a bad thing, in fact it might be the thing our nation needs more of, the conspiracy theories at this site range from laughable to downright frightening. This bit quoted come from a rant about how the RFID implantable chips are the Mark of the Beast, the "666" mentioned in the Bible ushering in the End Times. We all know how much the QF crowd loves to … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 3 – Fleas

by Mel cross posted from  her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAgain, Debi need to reach out to someone who was dating during the early 1970's.  This story is pretty funny, though, and has some important messages to us all Do you believe God leads and guides people before they get saved?  Maybe even guides them in who they should marry? Um.  I don't know because Catholics don't get saved - so I've never thought about that. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What it Means to Be Biblically Submissive?

Found on Minthegap (Is This Modest.com Adam Gregorin) blog leading to Ken Ham's Answers In Genesis - A Girl Named RuthEditor's note: Ham complains that most Christian children's books depict the mother with the open Bible reading to the children. This is because even in those 'sold-out' Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist extremist homes the fathers don't do reading to the children, or anything involving teaching or homeschooling. It's a realistic depiction. Perhaps you need to teach your wonderful Christian males that they need to parent too before blaming it on feminism or overbearing women. … [Read more...]

Family Life Today: Poised to Take Over the Vacancy Left by Vision Forum Ministries

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen the news of the unwanted sexual encounters between Vision Forum's Doug Phillips and Lordes Torres came out followed by the closing of both Vision Forum Ministries and their for profit Vision Forum Inc it left quite a void in the world of Christian Dominionism, Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements. Everyone speculated who would take over from the powerhouse dominionist ministry of Vision Forum. But those that might have stepped in to fill the void left by the closing of Vision Forum had their own scandals to deal with: first Bill Gothard of IBLP/ATI, who is huge in the world of homeschooling and dominionism, was accused of groping teenagers working at ATI … [Read more...]

News – Calvary Temple Church Spiritual Warfare

 Was asked to post this to get the word out about Calvary Chapel in Sterling, Virginia. This isn't too far from where I live and my poisonous old church had a few of the walk aways from Calvary Temple. In this area of Northern Virginia there have been whispers of dangerous wrong doing for many years.  Calvary has been in the Washington D.C. news a lot lately over allegations of abuse, both sexual and physical, not to mention the many years of rumors here in Virginia over the spiritual abuse endemic at Calvary. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Help! I’m Falling In Love With ‘GASP’! An Atheist!?

by Paula Hendricks from Lies Young Women Believe - I'm Falling in Love with an AtheistEditor's note: Oh no! Because it's just not possible that two people could ever possibly respect and love one another if they don't agree on faith? I'm sure that will come as a huge surprise to the many inter faith couples out there that have been successfully married for many years. If your faith is so shallow that it's challenged by anyone not of the same faith then perhaps you need to examine exactly why that is. … [Read more...]
