Quoting Quiverfull: Unevenly Yoked Kills ‘The Blessing’?

Quotes1-300x250

by Colin Campbell in Meat For Men - Biblical Fatherhood: Role Modeling Love The phrase "all things " is incredible and could include vast multitudes of personal desires, as well as impersonal.

combat

by Vaughn Ohlman from his blog The Practical Theonomist in response to LAF's claiming that women are being forced into combat positions in the US Military. A Design FlawI was conversing over on NLQ with a woman about the issue of women in the military, and whether or not they should be in combat. Since it is my view that women shouldn’t be in the military at all, I don’t really have a dog in that hunt. I was primarily there to correct a false impression that some seemed to have, namely that Ladies Against Feminism, and people like myself, were Ok with women in the military, … [Read more...]

What “Fireproof” and “Twilight” Have in Common

twilight

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons During my undergrad days, one of my friends convinced me to read the Twilight series. At first I rolled my eyes at the “vampire books,” but I did read them— flew through them, really. I strongly, strongly identified with Isabella Swan– but when I tried to explain it to my friends, all that I could come up with was that “we were both clumsy.” My friends laughed at me, or rolled their eyes, so eventually I shut up about it. I was never able to figure out exactly what it was about Bella that tugged at me so much. I knew it had something to do with her relationship with Edward– I was frequently able to draw direct parallels to my rela … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Icky Patriarchy?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

by Doug Wilson from his blog Blog and Mablog - Patriarchy, Vision Forum, and All the Rest of it.But the Word Patriarchy Makes Me Feel Icky The word patriarchy has more than a narrow denotation. There are also connotations, which must be taken into account as well. It does no good to use a word, and then, when everybody in the world misunderstands me, to plead the dictionary.

forgiveness

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlyI did a couple things I never expected to do yesterday. I had a thought-provoking conversation that left me thinking about how it is easy to decide that someone is an enemy, a jerk, a selfish person.

Quoting Quiverfull: Demanding Sex is Unbiblical?

Quotes1-300x250

by John Piper of the Desiring God blog - When the Sex Should StopMisuse #1: “Give me more sex, because the Bible says so.” A truncated explanation of 1 Corinthians 7:5 inevitability leads to this rationale. But whether it’s the husband or the wife pleading this case, it turns into trouble as soon as the other spouse isn’t on board. … [Read more...]
