Happy New Year! – Open Thread

happynewyear

by Suzanne Calulu cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeFor the last few weeks I've been waiting with baited breath for CBN's Pat Robertson to make his yearly announcement claiming that God told him what to expect in the coming year. Pat's obviously falling down on the job since he's been largely silent on 2014. Or perhaps his handlers are realizing how insane he's started to sound in the last few years.Let us revisit what he said in December 2012 in regards to 2013's happenings.... … [Read more...]

God Killed Our Baby: Isn’t God Awesome?

hand

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way ForwardEvangelical Christians believe that their God is the giver and taker of life and that he controls the universe. As the old song goes, he’s got the whole world in his hands. Everything that happens in their life is according to the purpose and plan of their God. When tragedy comes their way, Evangelicals turn to prayer and the Bible to find hope and comfort. The Bible says in Romans 8:28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. … [Read more...]

Differentiation and Emotional Cut-Offs

True acceptance

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of ThemMurray Bowen's theories on differentiation of self, and emotional cut-offs provide an excellent lens for viewing the complex relationships that exist between family members who were raised in quiverfull and Christian patriarchal families, where the family roles are artificially skewed by religious influence and the necessity for sibling-parenting due to sheer numbers in the family. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Idols, or Not Feeding on Christ?

fear

by Doug Wilson from his blog Blog and Mablog - Fear, Shame, and Guilt at Lunch High-techy modernism is still an idol, but it is now an establishment idol. It doesn’t rely on exuberant proselytizing to grow. It doesn’t ride on peer pressure (the way it used to). It is just as sinful to bow down to this idol of Science as ever it was, but the idol of Science is not causing tension in the fellowship of the saints the same way that the alternative stuff is currently doing. This is not because of anything inherent in any particular alternative treatment, but rather because as a social movement it is on the ascendant and is growing by proselytizing. The old idol is like a liberal mainstream den … [Read more...]

duckdynasty

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way ForwardMillions of Evangelical Christians are in an uproar over A&E suspending Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson over his homophobic, racist remarks made in a recent GQ magazine interview.  Facebook, Twitter, and the Sunday pulpit have been awash in defenses of Phil Robertson’s right to publicly state what he believes about homosexuality and the Jim Crow days of the South.  I thought I would use this post to summarize the various articles, news reports, and blog posts about Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Always Busy?

ants

by Pam Forster at Homeschooling Today - Lessons from the Ant What would these ants say if they ever stopped their work long enough to watch the children in that kitchen?“Why isn’t that boy cleaning up this mess?”“Why is that lady putting all the food away by herself? Why doesn’t someone help her?”“It’s going to take that girl a long time to wash those dishes if she keeps leaving before she’s done.” … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Easier to Submit to a Godly Man?

sacrifice

from Ladies Against Feminism - I Will Work With HimCannot determine for sure who's words these are but they appear to come from a sermon by Paul Washer titled A Biblical Husband and Father available on YouTube. There is teaching in scripture about the headship, the man and his family. There is teaching about submission. The wife is to submit to her husband. Many people hate that because of teachings of feminism. Other people hate it because of the massive abuses with regard to that teaching. … [Read more...]
