quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Bible In The Home | Do We Have Permission to Judge?Editor's note: Is this really judging or just good parenting with some wisdom of the dangers lurking about?

Quoting Quiverfull: Demons and Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Johnathan Parnell from John Piper's Desiring God blog - Parenting Means Wrestling DemonsEditor's note: There's just so much to dislike in Mr. Parnell's article on parenting and the demonic that it's hard to pick only one awful quote. The main message running through the piece seems to be that the devil is there to trip you up in parenting your children no matter what parenting style you pick and that demons hate children. Love your children, but don't love them too much seems to be the core message. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Treating Children Like Burdens?

quotingquiverfull

by Carrie Anne Hudson from Rescued Remnant - Raising or Resenting Our ChildrenEditor's note: Found this particular blog through one of the crowd funded adoption blogs. This woman is a missionary in China along with her family and likes to post things poking at things in American culture she doesn't like disguised as Christian thought. Here she's claiming that there are large numbers of parents that treat their children as if they are burdens instead of valuable members of the family. While I'm sure there are some out in the world that do treat their children like burdens and are resentful it doesn't seem to be huge numbers of folks acting like this out in public, no matter what belief … [Read more...]

What I Understand

Permissiontolivemelissa

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To Live In my last re-post I talked about how I am not my parents. This stemmed from being told again and again (whenever I disagreed with my parents stance on something) that when I was older, when I was a parent, when I was a parent of many… I would magically understand why my parents did what they did. The implication being that I would agree with and condone what they did as well. The breakthrough I talked about in that post, was stating that I will never “understand” or feel that abuse was justified, and I stand by that statement. But some of what they are saying is true. I have begun to understand some things. … [Read more...]

by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To Live This post was originally published in May of 2011. I’ll admit, I still go back to read this post on occasion. Because the fear of hurting my kids is so overwhelming at times, I need that reminder that I am not doomed to repeat the past, that change is not only possible, it is already happening.   … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marry Your Rapist Unless Your Father Says No?

marryingrapist

by Vaughn Ohlman from his blog True Love Doesn't Wait - Deal BreakersThis posting involves the reasons that fathers really shouldn't be refusing various courtship/betrothal suitors. The bit we're quoting below I've heard various pastors describe mostly as a rape situation (like in Deuteronomy 22:28-29), though a few has said it speaks of a man seducing a young woman. Like everything in the Old Testament it seems to be open to interpretation.  … [Read more...]
