CTBHHM: You Only Think You’re Spiritual!

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 109-10 Women, in general, give the appearance of being more spiritual than men. They like to dabble in soulish thoughts. There are many ways of expressing spirituality, but most of them have nothing to do with the Spirit of Jesus Christ. We ladies are more inclined to trust in our feelings and intuition than are men, which makes us more subject to deception, just like sister Eve. Feelings and intuition are ever-changing. The Word of God is objective and dogmatic—unchanging. It is to religion what hard facts are to science. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Small Christian Families Are the Enemy?

Quotes1-300x250

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men: Above Rubies - The Biblical Father Sees His Children as Rewards (And a Threat to the Enemy!)  Part 14DWho in their right mind would want to turn away the rewards that God values and gives? If we do not value what God values, there is something seriously wrong with our thinking. Furthermore, God says that a man is blessed if He has a quiver full of "rewards." The majority of the present church fails to realize that Satan himself is acutely opposed to quiver full families because the larger the Christian family, the greater threat to his kingdom. … [Read more...]

Lana Hope’s Story

trolldolls

Please join me in welcoming Lana Hope to our Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blogs Network!by Lana Hope. She blogs at Wide Open Ground  I grew up in the Deep South. In our rural homeschool community homeschoolers were a scarcity, with miles between families, so homeschool came somewhat isolating, by default. Our first year of homeschooling was the best of my homeschool memories – at least in my foggy memory. Our math textbook included counting ducks. We went on loads of fieldtrips and had hands on learning. There was no legalism or spiritual abuse in our house. I even had a troll party for my 7th birthday. Trolls. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Modestly Immodest?

Quotes1-300x250

by Stacy McDonald of Ladies Against Feminism -The New Barely-There Modesty I recently read a disturbing article by a pastor who verbally rolled his eyes at Christian modesty. In his blog post, he was responding in protest to Jessica Rey’s video about the history of the bikini. I’m hoping his attitude doesn’t reflect a trend, but after the defensive attitudes I observed when Soul Surfer was released, I have to wonder. … [Read more...]

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy  FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 106—108This chapter is called “The Nature of Man and Woman.” Last week, in the first section of this chapter, we learned that it is in men’s nature to beat their chests and roar at each other while women by nature sit back, admire, and wait to be conquered. This next section is called “The Woman Was Deceived.” I think you can guess the topic. Debi starts by telling the story of the fallen angel Lucifer and God’s creation of Adam. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sexually Transmitted Demons?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

Reverend Bob Larson's teenaged daughter Brynne Larson in both Jezebel.com and Vice"Satan can't just go into anybody that he wants to. He has to have a legal right." You can catch demons from having sex prostitutes. You can catch demons from being sexually abused. Teen exorcists stay away from things like Harry Potter, witchcraft, violence, Twilight (mostly because the storyline is "not attractive at all"), really scary horror movies, and "sexual stuff." The teen exorcists were "crushed" by the death of Margaret Thatcher. She was an inspiration. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Modesty is Mutual?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

by Brett Harris of The Rebelution - The Other Side of Modesty This is strange. Women may be shedding clothes this time of year, but so are men. Why are we only talking about female modesty? If modesty is important then it is important for all Christians. If it isn’t important for men, then why all the fuss about women? If it is important for women, why the silence about men? … [Read more...]
