Quoting Quiverfull: Patriarchy Means Treating Your Wife Like Fine China?

quotingquiverfull

by Greg Gibson from John Piper's The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood - Building a Marriage Culture | Husbands Honor Your WivesEditor's note: I don't know about anyone else here but I have zero desire to be treated like fine china. Fine china stays in the china cabinet unused and completely out of the loop most of the time. It doesn't have free agency, it's protected in a stifling manner that doesn't allow for any life and it cannot move or be used unless the owner deems it to be. Too delicate to be of any practical use in the day to day. An object. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What it Means to Be Biblically Submissive?

quotingquiverfull

Found on Minthegap (Is This Modest.com Adam Gregorin) blog leading to Ken Ham's Answers In Genesis - A Girl Named RuthEditor's note: Ham complains that most Christian children's books depict the mother with the open Bible reading to the children. This is because even in those 'sold-out' Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist extremist homes the fathers don't do reading to the children, or anything involving teaching or homeschooling. It's a realistic depiction. Perhaps you need to teach your wonderful Christian males that they need to parent too before blaming it on feminism or overbearing women. … [Read more...]

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Kids and Cows CollideI made a blogger decision to skip Chapter 14.  It's a story about how Sheila and Shad Williams saved their marriage through Jesus.  The problem?  First, their marriage wasn't in (much) trouble.  Second, they were married at some point before 1975.Yup.  Debi has started padding the book with stories from her contemporaries rather than using her shaky creative writing skills. … [Read more...]

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Love SlaveEditor's note: Nancy seems to think that being a wife and mother is a sort of slavery instead of an expression of free will and love in our lives.

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Robbed of Their Primary Dominion?

Quoting

by Andrea Schwartz at The Kingdom Driven Family and as quoted at Ladies Against Feminism - Power on Her Head: The Home Field AdvantageEditor's note: Bojidar Marinov is speaking about the minimizing of women's roles in the church by patriarchy along with the petty tin-plated dictatorship by men over their wives that seems to be endemic to the Christian Patriarchy Movement. Andrea's response? To try to explain management roles and job descriptions from the world being applied to the marriage relationship. Sort of like describing a pineapple and the listener drawing an apple instead. She describes a wife as a 'useful reflection' of her husband. … [Read more...]
