Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Adapt To Your Man Or Else?

When you force dye roses to make them certain colors it shortens the life span of the rose considerably. I would think doing the same with humans might have the same effect, or at the very least lead to a life filled with frustration.

by Debi Pearl in No Greater Joy Magazine - Multi-Colored GirlIt's all about those fake stereotypes Debi promotes in her books, Visionary, Priestly, etc, etc, etc,.... you get the point. She attaches 'colors' to each role and stereotype too. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Tell Others Anything ‘Not Nice’ About Your Husband?

shutyourmouth

by Erin Harrison from No Greater Joy magazine - Virtuous ConversationTalking bad about our husbands to others can spoil his reputation among the brethren. When a wife unloads to friends about how unreasonable or controlling he is, it may make her feel better for the moment, but it will spoil his good name for a long time to come. I have had two sisters in Christ continually cry to me about how horrible their husbands treated them. One wife would call me in desperation, telling me that she could not take his controlling nature any longer. She felt she was not allowed to go anywhere or do anything but serve him. It did not matter that she had talents and dreams. She was forced to set her … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The Prophet – Part 1

preparing

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideThe next three chapters cover Debi's conceptualization of the personality types of men.  I will give Debi credit for coming up with a schema that I've never heard or seen before.  The chapters on The Prophet (Visionary Man) and The Priest (Steady Man) are rather gentle and painless for a Pearl book.   She gives some breathtakingly bad advice but spends less time than normal running people down."God tells us right at the beginning of the Bible that he created man in his own image. "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness" (Genesis 1:26)" … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Sexual Intercourse = Our Relationship With Jesus

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 171—173This week’s section brought up a lot of fairly random thoughts for me. For instance, is possible that the Pearls’ discussion of sex as “holy” has helped some couples get over the sexual hangups they’ve developed from years of seeing sex as sinful and wrong? (I actually think yes.) And, is Debi printing letters she actually received, or is she making them up to illustrate her points? (I really really want to know this!) But perhaps most importantly of all, am I the only one disturbed by the idea that God designed sex between a man and a woman to be an illustration of his relationship wit … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet – Debi and Michael’s Love Story Part One

preparing

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideTo be clear, Debi and Michael's story is NOT a love story.  There is precious little love involved and a whole heap of red flags.I had just turned thirteen when I first saw him and knew, just simply knew, he was my man.  If he had glanced over and been able to read my mind he would have surely laughed.  (...)The whole community had been talking about the famous, young preacher who had been invited to speak at First Baptist Church's Teen Retreat.  (...) My young mind quickly assessed him.  He seemed bigger than life, a super, in charge type of man. I guessed he must have been at least 21 years old. (...) … [Read more...]
