Quoting Quiverfull: Forbidden Fruit

by Bill Gothard of ATI from his site billgothard.com - Conquering Temptations: Looking at "Forbidden Fruit" "Forbidden fruit" appeals to the lusts of our flesh, the lusts of our eyes, or the pride of life. "All that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world" (1 John 2:16). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Female Soldiers Forced Into Combat?

Ladies Against Feminism posted this snippet of the original blog posting at Why I Am Not A Feminist by Judithann Campbell. Judithann Campbell is not Quiverfull or part of the Fundamentalist Evangelical crowd represented by people like the Botkins. Ladies Against Feminism used her writing without giving her credit or even looking to see if the rest of the article conforms with their beliefs. Perfect example of LAF cherry picking to support their issues. … [Read more...]

Christian Cliches: “Lean Not on Your Own Understanding”

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsWhen I was part of Maranatha Campus Ministries back in the 1980s, "Lean not on your own understanding" was a cliche they were particularly fond of.  I remember when they were teaching us that Genesis 1:28, where God told the first male and female to "have dominion. . . over every living thing that moves on the earth," was a divine mandate meaning that today Christians are to "have dominion" in society and government, to "take over" for Jesus and make Christian principles and morality the "law of the land."  I remember shaking my head in puzzlement.  That passage doesn't say anything about human beings ruling over other human … [Read more...]

Is Clergy Sexual Infidelity Rare?

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way ForwardDoug Phillips, of Vision Forum/Vision Forum Ministries, recently confessed that he had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a woman who is not his wife. (see my previous post in this) Defenders of Phillips have taken to their blogs, websites, Twitter, and Facebook, to do damage control on the behalf of Phillips and the patriarchal movement. One such defender is Voddie Baucham, the African-American version of Doug Phillips, sans the scandal. Baucham is an Independent Baptist pastor.  (you can find Baucham’s website here) … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Wimpy Christian?

by Colin Campbell from his blog Meat For Men “The wimpy Christian does not feel the convictions that motivate him to cry out to God. This sort of thing is completely foreign to his casual way of thinking. He likes to stay cool, calm and undisturbed. If he attended the prayer meetings, he might feel a little of God’s heart, and what would that do to his smooth, delicate constitution? It may make him feel a trifle uncomfortable about watching his next unclean movie!” … [Read more...]

But first, some background: … [Read more...]

Fascinating Womanhood Review: The Male Ego

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons I’m halfway tempted to have today’s post be nothing but a collection of choice quotes from this chapter, because they almost entirely speak for themselves. However, like most of what Helen’s says, it’s all grounded in (unfortunately) common stereotypes about gender, so they are worth discussing. The chapter is titled “Masculine Pride,” and I had a hard time identifying anything in it that I could agree with or tolerate. Beginning with this: … [Read more...]
