Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – What Are Your Thoughts On This?

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: Part 3 – Every Woman A Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Debi doesn't say what to do if you are married to a man that shirks his responsibilities, forcing the wife to take over everything. But I'm pretty sure Debi would never fault the man, always calling the wife a Jezebel type. Remember, if Debi's not name calling and blaming a woman she's not happy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Why All the Hormone-Blaming?

by Steven L Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Being a Psalm 23 HusbandEditor's note: While some of what Anderson is saying below is true - there will be tough times in marriage - but he eventually goes to that place that Michael Pearl, Biblical Gender Roles and countless other patriarchs go: blaming a woman's hormones for adding to the bad times. Men please get a grip! Hormones aren't causing the strife in your marriage and aren't to blame for everything going sideways! Men have hormones too and be every bit as irrational and angry as the women they accuse. … [Read more...]

Lies Women Believe – Review: 91 – 114

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P Field.comI think dividing up the review by the various “Lies” Nancy uses worked really well last week, so I’m going to keep doing that. Sorry for the irregular posting schedule as of late– it’s been an interesting few weeks, but I think I’m back in the flow of things now. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Josh Duggar Would Not Have Strayed If He Had Been Polygamist?

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com = Five Reasons Josh Duggar and Other Christian Men Fall Into Sexual ImmoralityEditor's note: While this piece starts off with something I can agree with, that teenagers must have healthy sexual outlets such as masturbation and be taught that having sexual thoughts and feelings are a normal part of life it then goes into some rather weird places. Like Polygamy. BGR claims that men are hard wired to be polygamists.  Polygamy is the answer to cheating he seems to be saying. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Be Silent In Church Matters?

by Tim Bayly from The Bayly Blog - Rachel Miller and Valerie Hobbs: Where is the Apostle Paul When We Need Him?Editor's note: Tim Bayly is having what sounds like a ridiculous foot-stomping whiny little hissy fit over the fact that women - W-O-M-E-N - have opinions, options and leadership positions in churches over men. What is it about these weak Christian men that the moment a woman has an opinion they act like someone is trying to cut their penises off with a dull meat cleaver? It does not say anything positive about their shaky grasp of masculinity. Relax, Tim, women aren't out to 'get' you. What did these two women do to invoke the petty behavior of Tim Bayly? Why they openly … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Love Being Home Or Else?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - What Is Your Favorite Place?Editor's note: Again Nancy spends a lot of time making sure that women know they have to have a good attitude, no negative thoughts or emotions or ELSE! She makes no allowance for those fundamentalist homes where there are 19 children in a two bedroom home under 1500 square feet or if there are serious issues with housing everyone safely or in a pleasant way. It's all shut and smile even if you live in a ramshackle hovel. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Nagging and Your Husband Will Stop Watching Porn?

by Todd Friel from Wretched TV - A man stops watching porn after his wife stops nagging himEditor's note: This guy claims he's like the Christian version of Jon Stewart and seems to think his online show is the Christian equivalent of 'The Daily Show'. Not even close. What he is seems to be a snarky-esque hipster version of Pat Robertson. Here he's claiming that the way to get your man to stop with the porn is by your kindness and submission. Has that ever really worked for anyone you're known? Or is it just a piece of Christian mythology? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Holding Responsible Positions Over A Man Is Sin?

by John Piper as quoted from 'Ask Pastor John' from the website Housewife Theologian - John Piper's Advice For Women In The Work ForceEditor's note: So according to Piper if the influence of a woman on men is 'non-personal' and 'non-directive' and it's for the good of everyone then it's not wrong. But the second you enter the directive realm, like his example of a female drill sergeant, you're sinning. Another example of a evangelical cultural enforcer adding dos and don'ts to the Bible. At least we know he's not having a problem with womens voices on GPS under this mental/moral game of Twister. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – A Woman’s Submission Determines Her Husband’s Success?

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Are You Preventing Your Husband's Success?Editor's note: I'm afraid this isn't any better than yesterday's bit. She's still venturing into legal territory she has no business in. You cannot refuse to hire someone merely based on how their marriage appears to you from the outside. Interviewing people who know the family is pretty extreme and invasive. They might check the applicant's social media accounts, but not everyone in the family. She claims this is what large corporations does. No, no they do not. They may run psychological testing, such as a personality test to determine your honesty levels or to make sure you are emotionally stable. Some … [Read more...]
