Quoting Quiverfull: The Two Hundred Year Plan To Keep Your Family Large And Poor?

by Vaughn Ohlman of True Love Doesn't Wait -What's In Your 200 Year Plan?Editor's note: Don't know how many of you here have heard the '200 Year Plan' taught at your church but at one point in Evangelicalism it was a pretty popular idea. The one time I heard it preached from the pulpit I remember thinking that it seemed like the ultimate in control freak master planning. Out of Mr. Ohlman's writings about this two parts jumped out as awful. In his eyes this is all about making sure the children marry as soon as possible and breed the grandkids without one thought for how they are going to support all those grandkids. Very short-sided thinking. … [Read more...]

Mothers Day Open Thread: Do You Have Regrets or Wisdom to Impart?

by Suzanne TitkemeyerAnother Mother's Day is almost upon us again and I have questions of all the readers here that left the Evangelical Quiverfull Movement. Do you regret having or trying to have a large number of children? What would you do differently if you did it over? What did you learn? What would you like others to know?Mother's Day can be one of the hardest days of the year for those in or out of the church because of society's insistence that motherhood be presented in a sentimental perfect light, even if you aren't Quiverfull. It's hard to stuff down negative feelings and experiences on a Hallmark manufactured holiday and pretend to a happiness you may not feel. If you are … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The World Hates Babies?

Quoting Quiverfull: Embracing Your Womb & Breasts?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Blessing of Your WombEditor's note:  I believe that Nancy sometimes recycles posts from years before. I swear I have seen this word for word last year. Plus she doubles down on her ridiculous assertion that 'Woman' comes from 'Womb Man' - which is not true. I'm guessing she's all about blaming any woman who's womb doesn't work right.  Yeah, yeah, we get it Nancy, we should worship our wombs because without them we couldn't fulfill your own personal mandate of growing enough babies to field our own personal sports team. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 Listening To Your Wife?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - I Need Her Counsel and JudgementEditor's note: This is almost enough to make you feel sorry for Michael's wife Debi Pearl, but knowing how Debi twists what happened to her and uses it to make others feel fear and guilt cancels out any sympathy points she might get for her husband admitting what an abusive jerk he has been. Sick relationship. His advice in the end might be good except for his suggestion to pretend to be humble and thoughtful. Pretend? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce For Christians Ever Because It Causes God’s Judgment?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Beautiful Attitude ContinuedEditor's note: Colin seems to think that every single thing that doesn't line up with his personal interpretation of the Bible is going to cause God to thrash and trash the earth and all it's inhabitants rather soon. Somehow I get the feeling that he really wants that final judgment to happen as soon as possible. There is so much in the world of Quiverfull theology that wants others judged and throws shade on anything or anyone not part of the select group. What a way to live! … [Read more...]
