Quoting Quiverfull: Doug Phillips Resignation from Vision Forum

by Doug Wilson from his blog Blog and Mablog -  Doug Phillips Resignation from Vision Forum I thought I should say something about Doug Phillips’ resignation from Vision Forum, but it won’t be very much. The news was of course tragic, sad, and humbling. That said, I thought his letter of resignation was good, and accomplished what a letter like that needed to accomplish. I am glad he stepped down from leadership, and am glad he cancelled his future speaking engagements, and that is all to the good. Given the sin, that is what should happen.

Quoting Quiverfull: Our Clothing Choices Hurt Other Women?

by Stacy McDonald of Ladies Against Feminism and Your Sacred Calling - The Idol of Modesty Our reasons for dressing modestly should have nothing to do with gaining a sense of satisfaction or worth from another person. It should have nothing to do with attention seeking or yearning for approval from others. If we do that we have the same sin dressed up in modest clothes. The way we dress should have everything to do with dressing for the glory of God (and that goes for men as well as women). … [Read more...]
