Quoting Quiverfull: Sweetness & Light Always?

nag

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - We Can't Get Away With It Life is like a boomerang. What we say and do will always come back to us. We can't get away with anything. What we sow into our family life we will reap, not only in this life, but in generations to come. Our attitude and the words we speak (or don't speak if it is the "silent treatment") into our husband and children's lives will reap a harvest of blessing or ultimate destruction. … [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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Reasons Not to Send Daughters to College?

collegegirl

From the blog Strange Figures, a long list of commentary by Kevin Swanson - Homeschoolers, we can do better “Now remember, the goal is that these women have to be independent. The goal is lots and lots of birth control. The goal is lots and lots and lots of fornication. The goal is abortion. The day-after pill will help. And it will help a lot. Remember, the goal is to get that girl a job because she needs no stinkin’ husband, she’s got the fascist corporation and government-mandated insurance programs and socialist welfare that will take care of her womb to tomb. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Defending The Pearls and “To Train Up a Child”?

TTUAC

by Paige Coleman of Delivering Women From the Snares of Death blog - Pearls Before SwineFor those of you who left nasty comments online, please be adequately informed before you raise your voice in protest. Humbly consider what you say to your children and what you say to others.  If you call for the banning of “To Train up a Child” because of the actions of those who read it, then by following your own logic, I could call for the banning of the examiner’s website.  After all, the author of the article clearly provoked you to anger.  Let’s blame him instead of you!  If Michael Pearl is responsible for Carri Williams’ anger, then the examiner (sic) is responsible for yours. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Half Mothering?

worriedmother

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Half Mothering or Full Mothering? Christ, who lives in us is "prophet, priest, and king." I believe that every father should be a prophet to his family, seeking God for His ways and speaking God's counsel to His family. But, we as mothers also have a daily responsibility to speak the counsel of God to our children. Motherhood is even more than nurturing, feeding, and caring for our children. It is our God-given duty to feed their souls and spirits as well as their bodies. Even more so. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Healthy Co-Dependency?

codependent

by Rebecca Belcher Morecraft at Ladies Against Feminism and Chalcedon Presbyterian Church The separate roles God created “in the beginning” for each sex have largely been spurned by our culture and substituted with a false idea of equality that in no way resembles God’s original plan, when He created woman from the rib of man and arranged for future humans to spring from the womb of woman, thus establishing a healthy co-dependency for the continuance of life. … [Read more...]
