Fascinating Womanhood Review: Happiness

 by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons  So, it’s been a little while since we’ve delved into Helen Andelin’s world. We’re about halfway through the book, and we’ve reached the point where we’re going to start seeing a lot more ridiculous statements. On one hand, it makes it easier for me to demonstrate the absurdity of her beliefs– at times, all I’d have to do is quote what she says and even the most die-hard Vision Forum devotee would roll their eyes– but on the other hand, that makes it seem that what Helen’s promoting is so outdated that no one accepts it anymore.  That is, unfortunately, not true. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Opposite Sex Friendships?

Peggy and Don from "Mad Men"

by Jonathan Lindvall from the Bold Christian Living Yahoo Group   Do you have any ministry for teens/young people (and their parents) about   leaving a romantic relationship because it wasn't God's time yet, how to leave   that relationship and how to pursue that previous friendship as a "friendship   and sister/brother in Christ" rather than the previous romantic interest? (I   do hope I am clear - please let me know if I am not.) … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Putting Off Marriage To Get An Education?

youngmarriage

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Why We Should Encourage Our Children to Marry Young We could have the talk about the unnecessary hype of college but that would take too long. If we could understand that college may be necessary for highly specialized vocations, but generally, not necessary for a good education and training in most vocations, we would begin the process of demoting the college degree from some idolized status. It is now, especially in our highly technological age, only one of many ways to a higher education, not the least of which is laborious and expensive. … [Read more...]

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 147-148This chapter starts out fairly tame by Debi’s standards . . . and then turns into a train reck before you have a chance to so much as blink.

Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting Daughters Most of All?

daughter

by Jonathan Lindvall from the Yahoo Bold Christian Living Group Several generations ago, a father's responsibility (and right) to protect his wife and daughters was generally assumed and acknowledged in our legal system. It would have been unthinkable for a woman to be compelled to participate in legal proceedings, without her father's (or in the case of a married woman, husband's) involvement. I understand in many situations women could not even be directly arrested, until permission of their father or husband was acquired. True, a husband or father then became liable for his wife's/daughter's actions. But the principle of Numbers 30 (male protection over women) was honored. … [Read more...]

True Love Doesn’t Beat Their Precious Children

Mary_Cassatt_The_Mirror

by Suzanne Calulu cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeOne thing I can count on daily with picking articles and updating No Longer Quivering. It's that I will view theology and quotations that will make me nearly sick. The one taking my breath away right now is Paige Coleman's "Pearls Before Swine". She's defending Michael and Debi Pearl, saying that they are not responsible for the death of Hana Grace Williams, even if the Williams hadn't admitted they were using the child discipline advice in the Pearl's 'To Train Up a Child' … [Read more...]
