NLQ Question of the Week: Why Worship Baking Your Own Bread?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the things we're run across again and again in both former fundamentalist post-religion narratives and within the active Quiverfull world is a strange emphasis on baking bread for your family from scratch. During my years in a funda-gelical church I participated in it too. But I never knew why we were doing it. People talked about their bread, humble-bragged about their bread, shared their extra bread and recipes and at our church newcomers were all giving a fresh loaf of home baked bread to welcome them to our fellowship. Bread loomed large … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cannot Resist Babies?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Can Resist A Baby?Editor's note: Who can resist a baby? Lots of folks. College students, senior citizens, high school students, men and women working towards a goal, single people, married people and hopefully those ladies in the path of the Zika virus. A baby is not a trophy or a prize collected at the end of the particular difficult game. They aren't a box to be checked off on a list. They are a serious commitment, a life time commitment and not everyone is prepared to make that commitment no matter how Nancy phrases it in bad poetry. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Motherhood Only Career That Matters Eternally?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Highest CareerEditor's note: Nancy pushes her main message yet again. What is it about women having choices, even simple choices like if you go to school or work outside of the home, that these people find so threatening? Isn't having a mother who feels fulfilled and happy better than having a mother who's resentful and upset all the time because she's doing something she doesn't want to do? … [Read more...]

Is This Your Pastor?

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsHere is another interesting article on Covert Narcissism – specifically in the pastorate.  As I read the indicators, I was again nodding my head in agreement.Link to pdfThe bullet point list in the article talks about “one-upping you in conversation.”  I hadn’t thought much about this until I saw this point, but, yes, that happened in my very limited conversations with the pastor. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The HPV Vaccine Gives Girls Permission to Have Sex?

by Steven L. Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Physicians of No ValueEditor's note: Regardless of how you line up on the to vaccinate or not vaccinate debate it's a stretch at best to say that vaccinating a child against a possible future STD is giving them carte blanche to go out and start having piles of promiscuous sexual activity with anything or anyone. He misses the point that the reason Gardasil is given is to protect girls against an STD that leads to high rates of uterine cancer later. There is a long term goal benefit.Most of Anderson's sermon can also be distilled down to don't go to the doctor except as a last resort and the Bible holds all the medical wisdom … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Young Y-O-U-N-G Women Need to Marry and Have Babies?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - The Biological Case for Polygamy and Marriage of Young WomenEditor's note: This is pretty scary to me because medical research has shown that people aren't finishing physically maturing until their mid-20s. That's just about the time that BGR says you should stop having babies according to his post. And his assertion that you have lost 90% of your eggs by 30? That information is from only one single study, not the follow up studies done by places like the Mayo Clinic that dispute this finding. This lie about fertility was show on the "New Girl" a few years back and has been thoroughly debunked. … [Read more...]

Deadly Submission – Why Guys Like Biblical Gender Roles Matter & the Damage They Cause

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeETA Monday 11-23-15 Have to admit I was completely wrong on this one. They have arrested three guys for this murder with no apparent connection to Davey Blackburn. Breaking news from Fox 59~~~~~~~~~We've followed Biblical Gender Roles for about six months now. Gasping in shock at some newer more outrageous statement of his, laughed at some of the things coming out of mouth like that disastrous Alan Combs interview he did. But one thing we have not done here at NLQ is realize how his contemptuous words against women in marriage could have serious influence on unhappy husbands and possibly lead to tragic … [Read more...]
