Image by Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserThe Fundamentalist/Evangelical Christian church has many gods. While they will profess to worship the true and living God, the God of the Bible, often their true object of worship is human and not divine. Most Fundamentalist/Evangelical Christian churches have a congregational form of church government. Some churches have adopted an elder rule form of government. Regardless of what form of government a church adopts, there can be no doubt about who really runs the church.

News: Josh Duggar – Sexual Abuser Rumors Possibly True?

news

This evening while perusing Facebook  found a disturbing link to a story about Josh Duggar at the Facebook group page Duggar Family News. They posted a link to a story that seems to confirm the ten years of rumors we've all heard about Josh, that he was sexually inappropriate with an under age girl. The article at In Touch magazine confirms that there was a police report that was never investigated until after the statue of limitations had already passed on any possible crime. The article claims Josh is an “alleged offender” in an underage sexual abuse probe.From In Touch - '19 Kids and Counting' Son Named In Underaged Sex Probe (If that title isn't click bait I don't know what is.. … [Read more...]

Jason Lisle Says There is No Such Thing as an Atheist

bruce gerencser 2014

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserImagine, for a moment, that every time someone told me they were a Christian I told them that they weren’t really a Christian because there is no such thing as a Christian. It says right here in the Book of Bruce Almighty® that everyone knows that Bruce Almighty exists and that anyone who says they are a Christian is suppressing their knowledge of the existence of Bruce. The Christian would likely say that they know they are a Christian because Jesus saved them and they believe the teaching found in the Bible. Imagine if I REFUSED to allow the Christian to authentically tell their own story.  Can you ima … [Read more...]

by Bethany Baird at Lies Young Women Believe - When Looking Hot Gets You More AttentionEditor's note: So many times we've discussed the dangerous implications of the whole modesty culture that surrounds Quiverfull and Evangelical Christianity, the shaming and blaming that's done in the name of modesty, how it all plays into the purity culture/rape culture dichotomy and how destroying it can be to your inner self. Now they've come up with a different angle, the hot selfie, that thing many do on social media, they're making it all about your relationship with Jesus. Gah, just wear what you feel comfortable and confident wearing and leave poor Jesus out of it. Life is a much happier place … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Todd & Jessica Smartt from Smartter Each Day - 10 Things A Man Needs To Be HappyEditor's note: On the surface this sounds sort of sweet and charming, but it's the essence of what a patriarchal marriage looks like. Man works and uses his free time to go fishing and gets enough alone time not to be stressed out by the kids while the little woman makes sure there are meals, cookies, a clean house and kids trained enough not to stress poor poor Daddy out. This is what Christian Complementarianism looks like. … [Read more...]
