mushroomcloudcoffee

Remember when NLQ used to use a dropped coffee cup emblem to represent the administrator's reaction to much of what was posted in Quoting Quiverfull? Today deserves a fleet of dropped coffee cups in reaction to Nancy Campbell's words about the womb. Here's a mushroom cloud of exploded coffee to represent my reaction posting this.by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Blessing of Your Womb Genesis 49:25 talks about the "blessings of the breasts, and of the womb." Blessings? Yes, God says they are His blessings to us as women. But they are ultimately His blessings to the whole world for without them mankind would come to a screeching halt! … [Read more...]

by Marjorie Holsten from The Raw Story - Homeschooling Expert: Sex Ed is a Liberal Plot Make Kids Watch Guinea Pigs do it Instead “People say to me, why would they teach such awful things to our children?” she remarked. “If you go deep down and you connect those dots, you see that when children are desensitized to sexual things, that affects their ability at a later date to bond with a spouse.” … [Read more...]

The 10 Best (AKA, Worst) Quotations From Mary Pride’s “The Child Abuse Industry”

jawdrop1

by R. A. Stollar cross posted from Homeschoolers AnonymousMost Christian homeschoolers know Mary Pride as “the queen of homeschooling,” one of the founders of the Quiverfull movement, the anti-feminism author of The Way Home, or the publisher of the wildly popular magazine “Practical Homeschooling.” But she also wrote a lesser known book in 1985 entitled The Child Abuse Industry: Outrageous Facts About Child Abuse & Everyday Rebellions Against a System that Threatens Every North American Family. It is a remarkable read that calls for a “Second North American Revolution” — namely, having babies, abolishing no-fault divorce, going to church, eliminating foster care, homeschooling, re-in … [Read more...]

killerbaby

by Voddie Bauchaum from the sermon 'The Doctrine of Depravity' "One of the reasons that God makes human babies small is so they won't kill their parents in their sleep. They're evil. Yes, this is true of children. 'None is righteous; no, not one.'…Yes, that little, precious one—you better believe it. If you don't, you miss the big picture and you don't realize your desperate need to get the gospel to your child again and again and again and again." … [Read more...]

splittinghairs

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismI didn’t get into it when I touched on Wilson’s “Gaylag Archipelago” comment last week, but Wilson’s most recent post on what should be done about gay and lesbian individuals, in which he quotes from an earlier post of his own, sheds light on both the increasingly uncomfortable word dicing of those defending Leviticus and the utter lack of understanding these individuals have of their opponents. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Purpose of Children?

childrenplaying

by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar - The Purpose of Children (They Are Not For Us - And They Are) Children are not given to us so they can win beauty pageants, or because they’re cute. They’re not even to make us happy, though that is a fantastic by-product. Children are given to us as God’s very heritage, to propagate the gospel, to take a vital part in the Great Commission, to be part of the picture of the gospel, as representing the fruitfulness of the Bride and the Groom, to contend with the enemies of the cross. … [Read more...]

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Six Ways Parents Destroy Their Children Without TryingLeaving them to choose their friends. Many parents have done a good job in training their young children, and have put them on a path of virtue, but in their early teens they are influenced by their peers and yield to temptation while knowing it is not the right path. Even well trained children are flesh and are capable of falling into sin—just as is a moral, disciplined adult. … [Read more...]

TTUAC: Immediate Obedience or Death

TTUAC

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismTo Train Up A Child, pp. 3—4 “WHOA, HORSE”We live in a horse and buggy community where someone is always training a new horse. When you get into a buggy to go down a narrow, winding state highway filled with eighteen-wheelers and logging trucks, you must have a totally submissive horse. You cannot depend on whipping it into submission. One mistake, and the young men are again making several new pine boxes and digging six-foot deep holes in the orchard. … [Read more...]

Teaching Our Kids Religion

bridgebuilding

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundIn a post the other day, I mentioned that homeschoolers tend to be sheltered from secular ideas – to the extent that homeschool students are often not allowed to disagree with their parents or formulate their own opinions. The post lacked clarity in several areas. I am a graduate student and have been writing extensive term papers this month. So I rushed the post. Quite frankly, if I turned in a paper as undeveloped and unclear as that post, I’d get a bad grade. … [Read more...]
