Quoting Quiverfull: Being Like a Man Greatest Sin of a Woman?

by John MacArthur from Grace to You - Head Coverings For WomenEditor's note: So it seems that the idea of doing anything like a man if you are a woman is automatically considered rebellion against God. I guess that explains why men with fragile masculinity like Tim Bayly lose their minds when women fight in the UFC or try to have combat positions in the military - it's just the CPM version of the Little Rascals 'He-Man Woman Haters Club'. Hair and clothing are such personal matters than only the person with the hair or making the clothing decisions should have say over what their choices are. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Pick Up His Dirty Socks With a Smile?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Things He Fails To DoEditor's note: I think all of us as human beings are guilty of this - doing things differently than our spouse would like. It's part of the human condition. I would even agree that nagging and yelling about this things is counterproductive. But... so is cheerfully putting up with it. What's so wrong or rebellious about gently reminding someone occasionally that you would like them to put their socks in the laundry basket or dishes in the dishwasher and explaining that every time you have to stop what you're doing to accomplish those things it leaves you less time for more crucial matters. Adult conversations without … [Read more...]

Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: Physically Abuse Your Daughters?

by Tim Bayly of Bayly Blog - The Good Father: Fight the Good Fight 3Editor's note: Thank you Karen for pointing out this post in the comments. It is horrifying on so many levels. Notice too that Bayly is not advocating doing this to his sons, merely his daughter. This is what child abuse looks like in the CPM. … [Read more...]

Secretive

by AJ cross posted from her blog I Am Phoenix I don't know if I'll ever shake the need to be secretive. About, like, everything. Even writing this blog is a big stepping off point for me. It still feels taboo to be actually writing things that anyone could find and read. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Why There Are Smaller Numbers of Male Missionaries?

by John Piper from Desiring God at Church Leaders.com - Why Are Women More Eager Missionaries?Editor's note: Seems to me that men not marrying, or delaying marriage, are perhaps not the most mature people in the first place. Perhaps that's just the type of guy that has no business being  missionary at all. But it is wisdom not to marry or pursue serious types of activities when you're not ready for them. … [Read more...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Is it Wrong to Not Want to Marry?

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical,  rational and the best possible solution, in other words 1 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Why There Are Smaller Numbers of Male Missionaries?

by John Piper of Desiring God at Church Leaders.com - Why Are Women More Eager Missionaries?Editor's note: What? He's thinking that women have nothing in the way of control and influence over if they'll be married? What are we? Some low hanging fruit just waiting and dangling on that branch for the first lout to pick us off the tree? I think the idea that more women than men serve in missions has more to do with the fact that women are usually the core of any religious organization, the ones that do the grunt work and already outnumber men by a serious amount, not because guys aren't getting married. … [Read more...]

Peace in the Midst of the Storm

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace  Please enjoy the reflections of Stephen Parsons as he visits the Island of Crete. (The post in its entirety struck me as so lovely and deep using a powerful analogy that I have not even noted here, it is well worth the visit to Surviving Church to read it.): … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Spoiled Children Rule the Household?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Children are Bored, Impatient, Easily Upset and FriendlessEditor's note: We're continuing on with Lori's bashing of modern parenting and public school. While getting your children to help around the house is a good thing and instilling a work ethnic is also beneficial in the long run as you will notice Lori never explains how all these rotten children she's blaming rule their homes and demand to have all their wants met. … [Read more...]

Finale : Is Justice Delayed Justice At All For Carol Ann Cole

by Suzanne TitkemeyerLast week I touched upon the reasons why investigators might not be looking at Mack Ford of New Bethany Home for Girls. One of those reasons is the obvious conflicts of interest and fact that many people in north Louisiana have family ties that cross jurisdictional lines. I'm not the only one that came up with that theory. Patheos author Jonny Scaramanga wrote about the Grand Jury refusing to file charges against Mack Ford and pointed out several conflicts of interest just in the Grand Jury proceedings in his article titled Serial Child Abuser Mack Ford Will Not Face Charges.He gives a good analysis of who Ford was, the horrific damage inflicted by New Bethany, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Main Brain Nutrient Parental Attention?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Children are Bored, Impatient, Easily Upset and FriendlessEditor's note: I guess Lori does not really understand education or nutrition if she thinks that stay at home moms are the answer to making sure your child's brain gets the right nutrients. Bolding below on some of the more awful parts. Also, this screen addiction problem she's speaking of? The easiest way to deal with it, for you and any child is to download an app that will only allow the device to be used in increments, like for two hours straight, then it shuts off and refuses to allow you access again for a specified time limit you create. There are always realistic and creative … [Read more...]
