worshiping husband

by Libby Anne cross posted from Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Need His Help Meet, pp. 229—231We now begin Debi’s chapter on being obedient to one’s husband. In this first section, Debi mainly just quotes Bible verses, and then interprets them for her readers. In this post I’ll touch on some issues of interpretation, but I’ll also bring out some other pieces that come up, including a passage that sheds light on Debi’s view of the role of daughters, and more on Michael’s view of church authority. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Divinely Defined Gender Roles?

unfemininefeminity

by Nathaniel Darnell of Persevero News - Women Against Feminism“A man has no right to define for himself what his wife will do to please him. He must adopt Christ’s ideas, as revealed in Scripture, for what a wife must do to be a helpmeet to a husband and for what he must do to love her. Ephesians 5 tells us that this entails him giving up his life for her as Christ does for His Bride the Church. This involves a tremendous amount of unselfishness. It is a spending and being spent for her. What the authority of a man over his wife amounts to is that he is ultimately responsible for what goes wrong in his family. In the end of the analysis, no matter what the failures of his wife, he takes … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Shouldn’t Say ‘Amen’ in Church?

anderson

by Steve L. Anderston of Faithful Word Baptist Church from a sermon at Youtube of last Sunday's sermon.From this sermon: “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” He quoted I Corinthians 14 as his reason  “Let your women keep silence in the churches, for it is not permitted unto them to speak, but they are commanded to be under obedience as also sayeth the law.

Submissive No More

impatiens (2)

by AJ cross posted from her blog I am PhoenixI have had this huge epiphany in the last couple of weeks. My discovery:-It is OK to express anger in healthy ways, even if this means yelling.-Forced female to male submission is abusive. When a man yells at a woman and doesn't "allow" her to defend herself or yell back, that is abuse.I am realizing for the first time in my life that my lifelong habit of never raising my voice in anger, even when someone is screaming at me and being abusive...possibly isn't as healthy as I thought it was.It was my mother flipping out on me over the phone and email this past month that triggered this epiphany. … [Read more...]

The Destiny of a Virtuous Daughter: Part 6

starfury

by StarfuryMy depression grew over the months we were without contact. I had begun to build much of my life around Anthony, and my/our intent to marry. I assumed what I was doing was how it was supposed to  be--I didn’t have anything to compare it to, but, if I was supposed to marry my first beau? I dropped out of college and transferred to a state school in another state, where some friends lived. I made up half-hearted excuses to any who asked, and did my best to throw myself into my studies, despite the lack of challenge they presented. … [Read more...]

michaelfarris

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismIf you read my blog, you’re probably aware of the Christian homeschooling subculture’s patriarchy problem. A variety of prominent Christian homeschool leaders have been promoting patriarchal family structures at homeschool conventions and in homeschool publications for well over a decade, and two of those leaders—Bill Gothard and Doug Phillips—have recently fallen, engulfed in scandal. Michael Farris, another prominent Christian homeschool leader, has since come out criticizing these leaders and the “patriarchy” they taught. Now Farris has openly criticized “patriarchy” as part of a keynote address while keynoting at a homeschool … [Read more...]
