Quoting Quiverfull: What Happened to the IFB?

quotingquiverfull

by David Parton from What Happened To The Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Movement? - What Happened To Us?Editor's note: While parts of the IFB fall clearly in the harmful Quiverfull theology I have to give this man credit. He's asking the hard questions as someone in the IFB movement. Too bad other flavors of religion in Quiverfull are not asking and examining the same question. It can only be positive when those involved in the more cult-like versions of Christianity start critically thinking about why it doesn't work. What questions do you think Quiverfull churches should start asking? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Adult Children Must Be Under Father Headship?

quotingquiverfull

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait - Call a Eunuch a EunuchEditor's Note: This sums up what the patriarchy is all about, not what is genuinely best for either the family or the individual, but putting control over every aspect of the individual into the hands of the patriarchy.  Which is not a healthy dynamic and isn't even Biblical. What about the scripture that commands a man and a woman to leave their families and cleve only to each other when they marry? Patriarchy extrapolated out to an unhealthy degree.  … [Read more...]

Part 1 -Chapter 1: The First Commandment – Be Fruitful and Multiply Review

befruitful

NLQ Book Review of Nancy Campbell’s “Be Fruitful & Multiply” by Suzanne TitkemeyerNancy starts off the book by claiming that the words God spoke to Adam and Eve after making Eve from Adam's rib were the First Commandment. She thinks that the words of Genesis 1:27-28 are the first thing that humans are commanded to do, 'Be fruitful and multiple, and replenish the earth, and subdue it", not the actual first commandment that Jesus himself reiterates in the New Testament  - "I am thy Lord God and thou shalt have no other gods before me"? … [Read more...]

Quoting

by Voddie Baucham from his 'Child Training' sermon at Hardin Baptist Church bravely transcribed by R.L. Stollar from Homeschoolers AnonymousEditor's note: Notice that while Mr. Baucham doesn't call this mindset 'Quiverfull' he does use the same scriptures and ideas to promote having as many children as possible without any regard for ability to support the children or exemptions for physical problems that would make childbirth life threatening for the mother. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: AIDS Free By December 25th – The Duggars Lose Their Homophobe Crown?

The gleeful homophobic put the gays to death and giving illegal medical advice Andersons, Steven and Zsuzsanna

from Raw Story by Steven Anderson, Pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Arizona Pastor Predicts "AIDS-Free Christmas" If All Gays Are Killed, As God CommandsAnd here we thought Jim Bob and Michelle were the hatingest haters of the homosexuals in the world of the Christian Patriarch Movement. Looks like Zsuzsanna Anderson's hubby is trying to snatch that crown from their heads.This extreme hatred of gays to the point where he is advocating killing gay people makes me wonder if Steven is so far into the closet that he's seeing the next century's worth of Christmas presents. Many of these guys in the Quiverfull movement are so obsessed with proving their masculinity by keeping the … [Read more...]

Open Thread: Raising Your Children?

poisoncake

Last night I encountered this list of how not to raise 'Godly' children on Facebook. It was actually on the wall of someone I know from a very mainstream church where that church does not teach this restrictive list or anything even remotely close to it, but she firmly believes it. She's involved with the local homeschool group in my area, which is run by a woman that should be in jail right now for parenting failures of an extreme magnitude that originated with the type of thinking  this list is opposed to. … [Read more...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: When Even Conservative Christians Think Quiverfull is Wrong

missingmark

by Wade Burleson from Ethics Daily - Missing The Mark: Eight Flaws in Quiverfull TheologyFound this gem through Von Ohlman's True Love Doesn't Wait - Eight Leaps of Illogic where he attempts to take down this piece by Burleson. Obviously this is written from a conservative Christian point of view, but it looks like even the more conservative branches of religion are starting to realize what a dangerous theological bend Quiverfull is. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If You Get Sick From “Doing It All” Then God Has Other Plans?

sickmomma

by Jenny Erwin from United Christian Homeschoolers Upstate - Wednesdays Words of Encouragement: May 'He' Get All The GloryFound this through Ladies Against Feminism and Be Not Weary websites. This sounds so very much like the stories of many of us Quiverfull walk-away moms that it's frightening. The difference is that she's still at that place where she cannot admit her own chosen religious lifestyle is causing her great physical harm. I hope she makes the connection soon and does what she needs to do to heal her body. Any life style that is destroying your body cannot be healthy for anyone, it sure doesn't benefit  anyone in the family, it makes it nearly impossible to do the things … [Read more...]
