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.

Quoting Quiverfull: War on Wombs?

God coming to the earth as a "seed" from the Father. … [Read more...]

adamsrib

by Becky Stelzer from Ladies Against Feminism and Answers in Genesis - Inferior or Equal? Modern extreme feminism places women in authority over men, while traditional Darwinian evolution places women far below men.
