Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting Daughters Most of All?

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Joyful Motherhood?

By Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Merry-Hearted Mother God gives a description of mothers in Psalm 113:9. In fact, it is His design and plan for mothers. Do you know the description? He calls them JOYFUL mothers!"Oh my," you retort. "How do you expect me to be joyful when I hardly have time to get one moment for myself? I'm over-work and underpaid! I've got immature and crying little ones around me all day!" Dear mother, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Half Mothering?

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?

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Taking The Cup?

A review of the "To Be One" DVD about Courtship/Betrothal/Marriage by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine My only reservation in recommending this video is the Lindvall story. I want to be gracious to the Lindvalls, but I was quite troubled by their story. My first concern was the process of choosing a wife for Timothy. According to all the men in the story, the Lord had "told" each of them that Brittany was the one for Timothy. The process of winning Brittany seemed to lack any emotion or feeling on the part of the prospective bridegroom, because the Lindvalls believe love should follow … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Children Are a Covenantal Blessing?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog Children are a blessing. Scripture speaks that way, and so should we. But children are a blessing in the covenant. The cup of blessing at the Lord’s Supper is a blessing — it is called the cup of blessing. And yet, there were some at Corinth who were sick and who had died because of how they mishandled that blessing (1 Cor. 11:30). The mercy seat on the ark of the covenant was a mercy seat — but was Uzzah struck dead because he touched it (2 Sam. 6:7)? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Worry About If There’s Enough?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Can God  Provide For Another Baby? Many husbands feel the weight of providing for another mouth to feed and therefore don't want to have any more children. And many mothers feel like this, too.But, dear mother, God has promised that He will never fail us. David confessed, "I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread" (Psalm 37:25). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Should Fight ‘Religious Wars’?

Franklin Graham at Billy Graham Evangelical Association - Duck Dynasty and the Ducking Church I appreciate the Robertson family’s strong commitment to biblical principles and their refusal to back down under intense media pressure over Phil Robertson’s comments in a recent interview. As the Robertson controversy winds down—at least for now—I have been amazed at how many churches have apparently “ducked” out on the issue (sin). Some were even quick to condemn Phil Robertson. … [Read more...]
