Quoting Quiverfull: Oh No, We’re Not Quiverfull?

quotingquiverfull

by Kelly Crawford of Generation Cedar - Why I Agreed to Do a National Interview About Not Being QuiverfullEditor's note: Kelly is trying to back pedal from being Quiverfull even while she will not use birth control and has as many children as possible for the glory of God, which is actually the main definition of the Quiverfull movement, or as some folks in denial call it, the Replenishment Movement. Her immediate jump is to claim again and again that she is not Quiverfull and labels are the problem, not the twisted practices and dangerously bad theology. My Cajun great grandmother used to have a saying for times like these, "You can polish a turd, but it's still a turd." Same thing with … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is a Nazi-Like Plot?

obamawhitewomen

by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar - Obama's Feminist Remark: It's Not About ChoiceKelly's really on a roll. Not merely content to make fun of an adult child coming to terms with possible parental abuse during homeschooled years now she's tossing about words like 'Hitler' and 'Choice' because of one short sentence uttered by the Commander in Chief, instantly invalidating her argument by the usage of the Nazis. Extremely disrespectful to anyone with Jewish heritage that may have lost family members to the camps. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Purpose of Children?

childrenplaying

by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar - The Purpose of Children (They Are Not For Us - And They Are) Children are not given to us so they can win beauty pageants, or because they’re cute. They’re not even to make us happy, though that is a fantastic by-product. Children are given to us as God’s very heritage, to propagate the gospel, to take a vital part in the Great Commission, to be part of the picture of the gospel, as representing the fruitfulness of the Bride and the Groom, to contend with the enemies of the cross. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Patriarchy Is Not A Dirty Word?

manwoman

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Tired of Patriarchy's Bad RapEdited to add: Kelly Crawford has pulled down the post off her blog but R.L. Stollar over at Homeschoolers Anonymous has a PDF file of Kelly's original post. So what is Kelly afraid of? Patriarchy is not “man-control”, it’s God control. And you see, that’s just the problem everybody has with it. Frankly, in this 21st century “me world”, we don’t want anyone in control. Even us Christians. So we take God’s Word and not only reject it, but we make up our own deviated definitions about it and then call those who still hold to its simple truth “cult members.” … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Evangelising Via Fertility

duggars

by Kelly Crawford from old-paths.com and Generation Cedar - Fertility: It is Evangelism! I’ve been talking about this for a long time, and will continue to.  The common misunderstanding about God’s command to “be fruitful and multiply” is that reproduction is a private choice, affecting only the private lives of each family (therefore, “stay out of my business”). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Putting Off Marriage To Get An Education?

youngmarriage

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Why We Should Encourage Our Children to Marry Young We could have the talk about the unnecessary hype of college but that would take too long. If we could understand that college may be necessary for highly specialized vocations, but generally, not necessary for a good education and training in most vocations, we would begin the process of demoting the college degree from some idolized status. It is now, especially in our highly technological age, only one of many ways to a higher education, not the least of which is laborious and expensive. … [Read more...]
