Quoting Quiverfull: Silencing Your Feelings Against Your Husband?

quotingquiverfull

by Peaceful Wife from her blog Peaceful Wife - "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" - Finding Victory Over Feelings of InsecurityEditor's note: And a third woman quoted by Biblical Gender Roles to prove his dangerous take on the role of women and their petty female problems (as he sees it.) While it's a good thing to feel secure and not fall apart in doubt every single time your husband fails to bring you flowers or doesn't hold the door open for you, telling someone to not have feelings is never a good thing. One of the most harmful things in the extreme reaches of the church is when people are told to deny all their own feelings. Feelings are there for a reason, denying them only leads to … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is ‘Home Birth’ so Promoted as the Godly Way?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One thing we've seen here at NLQ in both the stories told by some of our writers and in the words of cultural enforcers of Quiverfull such as Debi Pearl and Nancy Campbell is a dislike or disdain for giving birth in the hospital. Even when there are tragic circumstances that might have been prevented with prior prenatal care with a licensed physician and at a health care facility --- like what happened with Carri Chmielewski. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Grooming Your Pubes Is A Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by John Piper of The Counsel on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood as quoted by Newslo - Pastor John Piper: "Women Who Wax Their Private Parts Are Hurting God's Work"ETA: Apparently Newslo is another one of those 'satire' sites that aren't clearly marked as satire. Snopes says this quote is not from Piper, but they also says Newslo has a disclaimer but there isn't a clear one anywhere on the page I found this information. Who knows. Take this quote with a boulder of salt.Editor's note: Are  you kidding me? Piper is seeking to control what his followers do with their own personal private parts? These guys just love creating new rules and delving into minutia, don't they? In the rest of … [Read more...]

Mythical Creation Science: The Beginning

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's note: New series by Mel, who is a science teacher. This is an important one considering so many in Quiverfull homeschool their children and may not have much of a science background. Good work Mel!I'd like to start a series of blog posts on the problems with "Creation Science". Since I've been reading NLQ, I realized that some parents who home-schooled while in CP/QF then left or kids who have grown up in that system may realize that "Creation Science" seems...wrong....but don't entirely know how to explain the actual sciences involved well enough to fix their educational gaps. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Heart Attacks Are ‘God’s Blessings?’

quotingquiverfull

by Wally Austin from Trish Ramos blog Fish With Trish - The Blessings of a Heart AttackEditor's note: I can't even...errr.. umm... this is one of the worst types of thinking that is common in quiverfull evangelical extremism. First they pressure you to never to do the doctor, but if you fall ill, extremely ill, it's either because God is trying to teach you something or because you have unconfessed sin in your life or the wrong attitudes. Let's get something straight, a loving father is never going to strike down a beloved child with pain and illness to teach them a lesson. Would you do it to one of your children? Nope. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Panic Attacks Happen Because You Don’t Trust God?

quotingquiverfull

by Savabrown14 from Loved By I Am - An Anxious HeartEditor's note: This is much the same as the poison being spread by Tim LaHaye in his book "How To Win Over Depression" that SASBN member Samantha Field was reviewing. Instead of admitting or realizing that anxiety, fear and panic can happen because of circumstances or even the chemical load in your own brain and getting professional help dealing with your feelings it's always 'You are not trusting God.' Yeah I am, I'm trusting God created psychologists and therapists plus medicine if it's needed. How is that wrong? … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is Established Science Ignored?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.Yesterday when I was reading through The Daily Mail's interview with Advanced Training Institute/Institute of Basic Life Principles founder Bill Gothard and preparing to post it here I was struck anew by the complete denial of scientific thought in Quiverfull. Example: In last night's posting Gothard claimed that the wrong kind of lust can damage the immune system and the endocrine system. There's no science to back this up any more than his claims that the semen of a man who is not your husband will cause cancer. No science behind it. … [Read more...]
