Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 5 – Grabbers, Hidden Flowers and Princesses

shorthairedbride

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideWell, the rest of the chapter is incoherent, mean-spirited and generally rude. In other words, classic Pearl wisdom. Generally, men like their girls to be informed and ready to give an opinion when asked. I agree with the major exception that women don't need to wait to be asked for an opinion. Don't ever let anyone silence you. Don't be a dingbat spending all your time on clothes and hair. That is shallow and temporal. Some men like their ladies well dressed and sharp, but that wears old in a few years. The mixed message on looks continues. So, look good, but don't spend time on looking good. (How does that work?) … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” review: 156-176, “Selfish Lovers and Servant Lovers”

50s-couple-2

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons [note: this post inspired some swearing] This chapter seems to be laying all the necessary groundwork for the last chapter in the “Sex” section of the book, and from the title (“Can We ____?”) I’m guessing that’s the one that caused some of the firestorm around it. Honestly, unless he does something drastic in that last chapter, I’m going to be a little confused as to why people were so bothered, since he hasn’t said too much at this point that I haven’t heard echoed in plenty of other corners. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Complain Ever Because God?

struggle

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - You Are Destined For ThisIf you're even thinking about complaining about anything Nancy Campbell, Evangelical Cultural Enforcer, is poised above your head to hit you with a Biblical fly swatter and a reminder to shut up because it could be worse. Or maybe God had planned all this torment for you to 'refine' you or as a test. What type of all loving all knowing deity tortures people for no good reason? Because Bible! … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” review: 139-155 “The Porn Path”

1950s-sweater1

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Ok, so the last time I talked about porn, a lot of people seemed to think that I don’t have any problems with porn, or that I think that porn is always ok and having negative thoughts/feelings about porn makes you a prude or something. So let me clarify something up front: I have a problem with a lot of porn, but I do my best to limit my discussions about porn to arguments that are reliable in the sense that I have more than anecdotal evidence to back me up. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dispel The Darkness Or Else?

light

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Family of LightHas anyone else noticed that in Nancy Campbell's world you are told to trust God, yet told to do all these things to make sure evil or darkness isn't in your life? Wouldn't 100% trusting God mean that you could trust Him to over shine any darkness or devil supposedly in your life? Too many contradictory things in Nancy's world. Trust but do that voodoo you do to make sure it sticks..oh, Nancy, you are like a little kid hiding under the covers from the Boogieman sometimes. … [Read more...]

6 Things You Should Know About Voddie Baucham

voddie

by R.L. Stollar, HA Community Coordinator,  cross posted from Homeschoolers Anonymous Due to the controversy over the lack of indictment of Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, American Christians are having heated conversations about racism in the United States. One of these conversations was provoked by an article written by Voddie Baucham for The Gospel Coalition. Baucham’s article, entitled “Thoughts on Ferguson”, was immediately criticized by fellow conservative Christian Thabiti Anyabwile. Today four Christian leaders of color — Austin Channing Brown, Christena Cleveland, Drew Hart and Efrem Smith — condemned Baucham for an “assault on black people” that w … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Grabbers, Hidden Flowers, and Princesses – Part 3

Since this is a Debi Pearl posting instead of hidden flowers here's a kitten hidden in flowers. Trust me, you'll need a kitten after reading this

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideDebi's shown one trap for a girl who likes boys - flirting and showing any kind of sexual attraction leads to marrying a pervert.Now, Debi sets up the other worse-case scenario - being an old-maid. Hidden Flowers Hidden Flowers are treasures concealed from public view, either behind closed doors or disguised as icicles. They might as well be wearing a sign that says, "Find me if you can, that is, if you are worthy of such a glorious gal as I." Healthy self-esteem is attractive - but that's my worldly ways speaking again. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Isn’t It Cruel To Make Barren Women Crave Babies?

Yes, Nancy went there and is speaking well of Catholic icon Mother Theresa

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies -  All Women Are MothersInteresting that Nancy "I Abandoned My Liberian Adoptees" Campbell is putting every women in the world in the exact same box marked 'Motherhood' and invoking a Catholic icon to do it. Most of the time it seems like the only time the Catholics are mentioned in CPM is when someone wants to toss rocks at them and say they aren't 'real Christians' … [Read more...]

King Henry VIII with a few of his 'grabbers' male and female

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideToday, we get to learn about Grabbers - a term Debi dropped in about 30 pages ago without a definition. In order to teach balance, I have divided girls into three kinds: Grabbers, Hidden Flowers, and Princesses. This is not a biblical categorization like the three types we discussed earlier, but it is very representative description of today's girls. I think the categories will help you gain a picture of what you want to become and what you need to avoid. … [Read more...]
