by Paula Hendricks from Lies Young Women Believe - Christ or Crush (Mysterious)Editor's note: Don't know if I  should laugh or throw up. She has some seriously bad analogies.

If you wanna talk about mysterious . . .QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think?

Not Quoting Quiverfull: What To Say To Someone Suffering

by Nancy Guthrie from John Piper's Desiring God blog - What Not to Ask Someone SufferingEditor's note: Most of the time when I read Desiring God I have to say 'ugh' at the terrible Evangelical Quiverfull ideas it contains. This is different, this is something I think all of us in recovery can learn from. It's a good list of what to say to someone suffering. Guess even places with bad ideas will occasionally stumble over something that isn't so bad after all. … [Read More...]

I Am A Publican And A Heathen Part 3

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIn March of 1994, our family packed everything up and moved from Somerset, Ohio to Elmendorf, Texas, a small rural spot along the road outside of San Antonio. Community Baptist Church had asked me to come to Texas to co-pastor the church along with Pat Horner, the founder of the church. This move was supposed to be what pastors like to call a once in a lifetime opportunity. The church was a young, growing Sovereign Grace church. (the church is much smaller today, and many of the members I pastored are no longer there) The church wanted me to jump-start their evangelistic efforts and help them start a … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Get In A Rut In Your Marriage?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Outdo One AnotherEditor's note: Wow, that's some advice. Not necessarily bad advice, but advice from Nancy's generation that has nothing to do with living as a committed, submitted Quiverfull wife. The thing is with this advice is it can rebound in two bad ways, 1 - if you really don't 'feel' the feelings of overwhelming love towards your spouse he's going on pick up on the fact that you're doing this out of rout obedience and not genuine affection Let's be real here, in a marriage there are going to be those days when you don't feel that over the top love sensation you felt in the beginning, there are seasons and there's nothing wrong with that. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Throwing Shade on Korea, ISIS and Abortion Because Jesus?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Mourning Over What Grieves ChristEditor's note: Colin is in rare form in this post. He manages to order others to mourn for things, claims to know what makes Jesus mourn and manages to be racist, paranoid anti-government and blaming of others in four short paragraphs. That takes talent! (/sarcasm). Seriously, there a whole lot of judging, blaming and shaming in his words. Is it really necessary to say those things to ask others to do more intercessory prayer? … [Read More...]

Coded Language: When Words Have Other Meanings

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog What Would Roger Sterling Do? originally posted June 2014These last few weeks I've been reading through the new book out of John Piper's camp - "Good: The Joy of Christian Manhood and Womanhood" and I posted one puzzling piece at NLQ. Mel also wrote a valid criticism or the book at her site When Cows and Kids Collide.It was a story of a disabled boy who's adoptive Good Christian (tm) father determined that the main thing wrong with the child was that he had a mental picture of himself as disabled, weak and whiny. The father decided that the thing to make the child readjust his attitude and change his mental self image was to force him … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Twisting The Gospel?

by Chelsen Vicari from Charisma Magazine - Here's How the New Christian Left is Twisting the GospelEditor's note: This writer is pushing the same exact agenda as Above Rubies leader Nancy Campbell. Which is if you're a 'good' enough parent who is constantly drumming the right theology into your child's head then everything will work out right. But if you lose focus for one little second your child is damned to hell and you failed. The same blame and shame theology dressed up a little bit differently. Yes, there is some twisting of the gospel going on here, and it's not by the Christian Left. … [Read More...]

You Will O-bey, Or You Will Be Exter-minated

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living LiminalOk, so the truth was bound to come out sooner or later... I have to confess to being a bit of a geek... just a bit...And so inevitably I couldn't help but discern the similarity between the Daleks' mantra of 'obey or be exterminated' and the 'submit or be excommunicated' way of operating espoused by some christians. Christians and Daleks with so much in common! Who would have thought? See what I did there ;) … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 Twisting The Gospel?

by Chelsen Vicari from Charisma Magazine - Here's How the New Christian Left is Twisting the GospelEditor's note: Someone is extremely tone-deaf to the problems with the traditional church model and is blaming those that dare to think there might be better ways to approach faith. As long as the as the traditional core refuse to confront the problems inherent in the Christian Patriarchy Movement people are going to continue to leave and the numbers will grow, just like when a levee cracks and a little hole lets out a little water but as time goes on it becomes a raging torrent of water. Denial isn't pretty. … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Children Should Never Say ‘No’ To An Adult?

by Mary Ellen from The Imperfect Homemaker - 6 Things my Kids Are Not Allowed to Say to AdultsEditor's note: Hiya! Still in Costa Rica but when this popped up on my Iphone Facebook feed I knew I should not wait to get back to the states to post it. Earlier in the week the hotel had limited internet access so this it a few days late being posted. Also, enjoy this photo of the beach here. Why rush to post this? Couple of reasons. 1) Mary Ellen keeps editing this and backpedaling from her original strong stance that 'No' is never allowed and 2) teaching your children to never say no to adults has been shown to set up children from rigid fundamentalist homes for child abuse. When you … [Read More...]
