Not Quoting Quiverfull: ‘Religious Enthusiasm’ Was Once Considered Mental Illness?

Someone sent this to me on Facebook. It's a purported list of things that would be considered mental illness and land you in a British mental asylum during the late 1800s. 'Over Study of Religion' and 'Religious Enthusiasm' are listed as reasons to be committed along with some pretty surprising things such as being abused by your husband or novel reading.When did religious enthusiasm because normalized, or even glorified?For your amusement..Comments open below NLQ Recommended Reading … Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement by Kathryn Joyce 13:24 - A Story of Faith and Obsession by M Dolon Hickmon<A HR … [Read More...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Three Types of Women – Part 1

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideSorry for the absence, folks!  I started a graduate school program and had a few action packed weeks.     Debi's about to launch into some truly unique theology today - and she leads off by forgetting to cite the Bible.  Yay for editoral prowess! "When God saw how lonesome poor old Adam was, he said, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make a help meet for him." [Ed. Note: Genesis 2:18] All females agree with God that it is not good for those wonderful eligible men to be alone!  Some men are slower to come to see their need for us tender sweeties than others, but most all men finally come to a place where they are … [Read More...]

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Remembering 9/11 – Love Endures

For once I cannot dispute something posted at the usual hysterically histrionic site Ladies Against Feminism. They posted this piece remembering the national tragedy of 9/11 and how we forgot our divisions to come together and that love itself is the only thing that really matters.This was one of those rare moments in this country where religion, race, class or other divisions suddenly didn't matter. Many citizens of our nation managed to put aside their differences and objections to just be people helping other people.Love: A Manifesto of Optimism by George Grant … [Read More...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Having Babies is Equal to Arguing With God?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Dare We Argue With God? God's creation of our bodies is perfect, yet it seems that man often thinks he knows better than God. Our great Creator blessed us with a womb to conceive and bring forth children. And yet many women hardly want to acknowledge they have a womb. If they do, they take action to make sure that it cannot function as God intended. Men also stop the function of their fertility to their own detriment.Many think that by having a tubal ligation or vasectomy they are saving their lives. The opposite is the case. When we try to save our lives we lose them. When we lose our lives for Christ's sake, we find them (Mark 8:35). Our own way … [Read More...]

“Real Marriage” by Mark Driscoll: review xi-xiv Preface and Introduction

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons Ok, so I read four pages of Real Marriage this morning. There’s eleven chapters, so with that plus covering the preface and introduction today, I’m going to try to wrap this up in three months and avoid as much of the “multiple weeks dedicated to one chapter” thing that happened a few times with Captivating. I don’t think you or I could handle it. Like Fascinating Womanhood and Captivating, Real Marriage will inevitably have statements that I agree with, mostly because they’re common sense. And, the first time I read these pages this morning, I thought I could agree with a good portion of what he said in the preface, which i … [Read More...]
