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

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...]

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

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Adult Movies Lead To Demon Possession?

by Pat Robertson on his television show "The 700 Club" as quoted by Right Wing Watch.OrgEditor's note: I was searching for a Pat Robertson RWR bit posted on Facebook where Robertson tells a man who's wife refuses to be submissive to beat her.

“How To Win Over Depresson” – review – 113 – 136

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons For new readers: this post is part of a regular blog feature, where I read through influential books on Christian living. The beginning of the series covering Tim LaHaye’s How to Win Over Depression is here; you can also read through my series on Helen Andelin’s Fascinating Womanhood, John and Stasi Eldredge’s Captivating, Mark and Grace Driscoll’s Real Marriage, and Rob and Kristin Bell’s Zimzum of Love. ~~~~~~~~~ These two chapters were repetitive, so I’m going to do my best not to rehash things I’ve already commented on. A few things jumped out to me on this reading of “How to Overcome Self-Pity,” especially one thing in … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sorry I’m Not Perfect For My Future Husband?

by savabrown14 from the blog Loved By I Am - Dear (Possible) Future HusbandEditor's note: This is one of the hateful things about Fundamentalist/Evangelical Quiverfull, the 'not good enough' syndrome while being pushed to be perfect. Where's the grace in this or in being allowed to be human, warts and all. Nice slut shaming in there too over supposed immodesty by girls your future husband might encounter in day to day life. A man looking at a beautiful woman is not a sin any more than the writing have had crushes on various men or having emotions. So many things here going on at once. … [Read more...]

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIf you spend any time reading Evangelical Christian websites, blogs, or news sites, you will likely read things like:Making same-sex marriage legal will destroy America. Removing prayer, Bible reading, and the Ten Commandments from public schools will cause moral decline. Allowing abortion to continue will cause God to pour out his judgment and wrath on America. Barack Obama is a Kenyan-born liberal, socialist, communist Muslim who plans to institute Sharia Law, set up death panels, and arrest Christians. Besides, he’s black and his middle name is Hussein. Rock music is Satan’s music and lis … [Read more...]

The Problem With How Fundamentalists Use the Word Individualism

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundOver at No Longer Quivering, Kristen examines an article written by a passionate complementarian. Complementarianism, as you probably know, is the belief that men and women are different, so different that they have different roles, with the man being the leader and the woman being called to submit. The main argument of the article that Kristen examines is that egalitarianism, the belief that women and men are equals in the fullest sense of the word, is negatively intertwined with the modern notion of individualism. … [Read more...]
