Quoting Quiverfull: Easier to Submit to a Godly Man?

from Ladies Against Feminism - I Will Work With HimCannot determine for sure who's words these are but they appear to come from a sermon by Paul Washer titled A Biblical Husband and Father available on YouTube.

ALTM: Chapter 2 – Babies, Babies, BABIES!

Luckily this time they actually had the correct verse number - “God blessed them and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply.” - Genesis 1: 28. But I have to wonder why they lopped off the backside of 1:28, you know, all that jazz about filling and subduing the earth and its critters. … [Read more...]

The “Jezebel Spirit” Teaching: Priming Churches for Spiritual Abuse

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsIt's a story my husband Jeff likes to tell from before we were married.We were both members of a coercive Christian group of "charismatic" persuasion-- meaning that the group believed in supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Like most charismatic groups, our church believed that Christians and churches could be harassed by, or even come under the power of, demonic spirits. We believed God had called us to "rebuke" such spirits in the name of Jesus and drive them out of our lives and the lives of others. … [Read more...]
