Quoting Quiverfull: What Does That Love Look Like Exactly?

quotingquiverfull

by John Piper of Desiring God and The Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Christian Love and Putting on ChristEditor's note: For a people that constantly brag about love I'm not seeing it at all. We do get to witness hate, discrimination, racism, pressure to conform, and a great many other things that don't exactly ooze love. I see a lot of hypocrisy in this statement. What do you think dear readers? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Emotions and Thoughts Are Sin Too?

quotingquiverfull

by John Piper from Desiring God and Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood tweeted and then deleted. From Spiritual Sounding Board's Facebook page.Editor's note: One of the most poisonous teachings in the world of both Quiverfull and Evangelical Christianity is that your own feelings and emotions are a sin. They take the notion that anything you think or feel is sinful when if you take an objective look at the Ten Commandments all of the rules stem from actions, not thoughts or emotions. Demonizing emotion is a good way to ensure your flock stays feeling guilty at all times and firmly under the control of the cult leader. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Seductive Women Are As Bad As Male Rapists?

quotingquiverfull

Good catch by Calvinist Janeway! She posted this on her blog Explorations in Egalitarianism - John Piper, Rape, Seduction, and Sin Leveling The quote is something that was tweeted by John Piper of  Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.Editor's note: Piper deleted this shortly after posting it on Twitter. He must have gotten some well-deserved fundigelical push back over this idea that somehow female seducers and male rapists are the same thing. A seducer can be resisted, but a rapist takes violently what he wants. … [Read more...]

by John Piper of Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and Desiring God on his Twitter feed.Editor's note: Word salad with a ridiculous idea.

The “Feminization” of the Church

Image by Kristen Rosser

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsIn recent years a lot of people have been talking about why in most Christian churches there is an approximately 60-40 ratio of women to men.  This 2006 Biola Magazine article puts it like this: There are generally more women than men in every type of church, in every part of the world. . .A traditional explanation is that women are more spiritual than men. But the leaders of [a new masculinity] movement suggest that the church’s music, messages and ministries cater to women. . . The result of this feminization is that many men, even Christian men, view churches as “ladies clubs” and don’t go — or they often go to please their … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What’s He Doing Watching Nude Reality Shows?

"Naked and Afraid" plus extremely pixelated. Is this really 'erotic' to anyone?

by Tony Reinke at Ladies Against Feminism  and at Desiring God - What We Learn From Nude Reality TVWe laugh when little children run down the neighborhood sidewalk unclothed, chased by an embarrassed and apologetic parent. There’s a funny innocence to it in the life of a child who, to some degree, is ignorant of sin. In the same way, when men and women show themselves nude in public, they act like children, like ignorant children dumb to the fires of sexual lust that fuel the most unspeakable crimes in this world. Nobody can be protected from this. Even within the safe haven of a church will arise men who “have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin” (2 Peter 2:14). To stoke the flame … [Read more...]

by Johnathan Parnell from John Piper's blog Desiring God - That Angry Gentleman at the Restaurant That is the thing with anger, and the thing I needed to learn — perhaps we all could learn — from a scene like the one this angry gentleman put on.

Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce Even if Abused?

brokenvows

by Sam Crabtree at John Piper's Desiring God blog - Until Death Do We Part - For Real Some disapprove, saying that Jesus allows exceptions — that is, he allows divorce in cases of adultery — but a careful reading of Matthew 5:32 shows that adultery does not nullify or overrule what God has joined together. Rather than adultery being a cause for divorce, it is the divorce and remarriage of divorced parties which causes adultery. … [Read more...]

“Equal But Subordinate” and Soft Complementarinism

halves

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's Words My analysis of the "Equal but Subordinate" teaching on women in Christianity seems to be turning into a series.  I didn't intend to do this, but I do believe the implications of this teaching in its various manifestations should be addressed fully.  This, then, is Part 3 (and I hope the conclusion!) … [Read more...]
