Quoting Quiverfull: So Abolitionists & Pro Lifers Are Alike?

brother

by Brent Aucion from John Pipers Desiring God - The Frontlines of the Pro-Life Movement How should Christians respond to these attacks on crisis pregnancy centers? First, Christians should see crisis pregnancy centers as arms of the church fighting for the oppressed, much like the anti-slavery organizations of Antebellum America. Secondly, we should take heart, remembering that the much-maligned abolitionist societies persevered and, in the end, prevailed. But, thirdly, we must remember that their success was not guaranteed and it came at a cost. … [Read more...]

Love & Death in the House of Prayer (A Rolling Stone Expose)

bethany

By Boze Herrington cross posted from his blog  The Talking Llama Hello, everyone. I’m back from a month-long blogging break. The big story of the day is this investigative piece by Jeff Tietz for Rolling Stone Magazine about the cult I was in and the loss of my best friend. He does an excellent job of explaining how the group formed and how it all went wrong, and paints a beautiful picture of Bethany as she was known to those who truly loved her. … [Read more...]

Motley Crue and Christian Fundamentalists would get on great

Tommy Lee in 2012 (Photo credit: Wikimedia commons) It seems relevant to mention that Lee has also served time for spousal battery

by Jonny Scaramanga cross posted from his blog Leaving Fundamentalism I love Mötley Crüe. They were one of the bands that were instrumental in helping me to break out from the fundamentalist bubble I grew up in. “Dr Feelgood” was incredible; it made the Christian music I used to love seem anaemic and pathetic by comparison. And when I finally got to the point where I could sing “Shout at the Devil” without fearing that I might burn in hell, it was a huge personal breakthrough. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Blaming Disasters on “God’s Wrath”?

atanus

From The Examiner - GOP Candidate claims autism and dementia are God's punishment Suzanne Atanus, Republican candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in Illinois, claims autism and dementia are God’s punishment for abortion and LGBT rights.

International House of Prayer: One Year Later After the Death of Bethany Deaton

Does anyone remember the death of IHOP intern Bethany Deaton? More than a year ago we mentioned her death in several different pieces and said we would be doing any followup to the case we saw. In the time that has passed since Bethany was found murdered in her van not much has changed. Her husband, Tyler Deaton, has moved to another area and taken a job as a teacher, Micah Moore,  the man that confessed has gone to trial and Mike Bickle distanced himself and IHOP from the Deatons, even going so far as to teach on what constitutes a cult in the wake of allegations about Tyler Deaton's group. Rolling Stone Magazine has researched and written an in depth article about the death of Bethany … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Defending The Pearls and “To Train Up a Child”?

TTUAC

by Paige Coleman of Delivering Women From the Snares of Death blog - Pearls Before Swine For those of you who left nasty comments online, please be adequately informed before you raise your voice in protest. Humbly consider what you say to your children and what you say to others.  If you call for the banning of “To Train up a Child” because of the actions of those who read it, then by following your own logic, I could call for the banning of the examiner’s website.  After all, the author of the article clearly provoked you to anger.  Let’s blame him instead of you!  If Michael Pearl is responsible for Carri Williams’ anger, then the examiner (sic) is responsible for yours. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Healthy Co-Dependency?

codependent

by Rebecca Belcher Morecraft at Ladies Against Feminism and Chalcedon Presbyterian Church The separate roles God created “in the beginning” for each sex have largely been spurned by our culture and substituted with a false idea of equality that in no way resembles God’s original plan, when He created woman from the rib of man and arranged for future humans to spring from the womb of woman, thus establishing a healthy co-dependency for the continuance of life. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Taking The Cup?

chagal

A review of the "To Be One" DVD about Courtship/Betrothal/Marriage by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine My only reservation in recommending this video is the Lindvall story. I want to be gracious to the Lindvalls, but I was quite troubled by their story. My first concern was the process of choosing a wife for Timothy. According to all the men in the story, the Lord had "told" each of them that Brittany was the one for Timothy. The process of winning Brittany seemed to lack any emotion or feeling on the part of the prospective bridegroom, because the Lindvalls believe love should follow … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homeschool Because of School Shootings?

gaykevin

by Kevin Swanson of Generations With Vision from his Facebook On yesterday's show, we found that school shootings have doubled over the last year, and the rate is 150 times what it was in the 19th century. However, the good news is that you can find bullet-proof backpacks for your children. Also, for only $950, you can get bullet-proof vests for children. Or... you can homeschool. … [Read more...]

Apostate: What Kevin Swanson Gets Wrong About Thomas Aquinas

stthomasholycard

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open Ground I am reading through Kevin Swanson’s latest book Apostate: The Men Who Destroyed the Christian West. The first man on Swanson’s list is St. Thomas Aquinas. Oh, yes, according to Swanson, Aquinas is an apostate who destroyed the Christian west. In fact, St. Thomas was the foundation of our western apostasy and the decline of the Christian west. Quoting Swanson, “If the foundation was compromised, the building was doomed from the start.” … [Read more...]
