Quoting Quiverfull: Godly Response to a Sick Friend?

resting

by Kelly Reins from Ladies Against Feminism and her blog Ah The Life - A Snippet From a Letter to a Friend I am praying for you. I know it's difficult to be still and I know you know this, that there is great joy having no distractions between ourselves and our great Saviour (sic). There is precious insight in the much afforded quiet time and as much as pills, and herbs, and various other remedies bring relief, it is true that there is an equal amount of relief in walking through sanctification, delighting to do the smallest thing He asks us in faith, and becoming so acquainted with Him, it seems hard to have to part and bring the mind back to the cares of this world. … [Read more...]

by Voddie Bauchaum from the sermon 'The Doctrine of Depravity' "One of the reasons that God makes human babies small is so they won't kill their parents in their sleep. They're evil. Yes, this is true of children. 'None is righteous; no, not one.'…Yes, that little, precious one—you better believe it.

IMG_1432

by Matt Walsh from The Matt Walsh Blog - Congratulations, graduates: you've done exactly what you're expected and legally required to do(Editor's note: While this isn't necessarily a 'quiverfull' or 'evangelical' issue, it is something rather screwy that seems to go against all conventional wisdom. Particularly since for some kids just getting through high school itself is a major accomplishment. What is wrong with celebrating the hard work, dedication and accomplishment of someone else?) … [Read more...]

How I Was Almost Rescued from Abuse

rescued

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of ThemA few months I wrote a post called Navigating the Justice System Part 1: Alone at 9 Years Old. This post is the story of what it was like for me to experience a Children's Aid investigation and a court case, from my perspective as a child. It skips pretty quickly over what the social workers were like and what they did, and I didn't talk very much about the involvement of other agencies and groups. … [Read more...]
