CTBHHM: Praying Women and “Spiritual Masturbation”

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 180—182So, Debi gets mail. Or rather, Michael does, but whatever, it made into Debi’s book. Dear Mr. Pearl,I am a busy mother whose children go to a Christian school. I am realizing that without another close female in my life who could share house duties, it is harder on me than it should be. Do you by any chance have a husband? Because believe it or not, they can help out with things like housework and childcare. I know, right? It’s crazy! … [Read more...]

Keeping the “Unity of the Body” Without Being a Martyr: You Have the Right to Protect Yourself

Bambam

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Seeking The LightHow emotionally triggering has the last week or so been? So triggering that last night I had to post this on my Facebook wall: "Dear Former Fellow Church Members From Raccoon Ford Christian Fellowship - If you are not currently on my friends list and someone I actually still have a positive relationship with please do not send me a friends request. If you behaved hatefully towards me when I left the church I really have no desire to be 'friends' now. I've moved on." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Versus “The Sodomites”

Gayagenda

by Jeramy Anderson from Persevero News - Sodomy: A Cycle of Collapse(Editor's note: While Jeramy doesn't define exactly what he considers a 'sodomite' it seems like he might be talking about the LBGT community, but he could be speaking about any group that doesn't necessarily subscribe to his worldview.) A good comparison would be that of a Homeschool family. Not all are Christian, but many of them are believers. It only makes sense, for the very reason parents Homeschool is because they do not want their children to be engulfed by a false worldview. Furthermore, as they align themselves with Scripture, they rejoice in children, desire to be good stewards by saving instead of wasting … [Read more...]

Duggars are Not Crazy

duggars

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundAfter I heard that Jessa Duggar is now courting, I’ve struggled to find words. In a way, I’m happy for her. In a way, I’m always sad to see my peers trapped in patriarchy. But in the midst of those emotions, I don’t have anything to say to Jessa. This is her life, not a cartoon on TV.  I do, however, have something to say to all her harsh critics – all the critics who mock her family, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mental Illness is Self Focus?

Quotes1-300x250

by John Piper from desiring God - 10 Resolutions for Mental Health That night Dr. Kilby had a pastoral heart and a poet’s eye. He pled with us to stop seeking mental health in the mirror of self-analysis, but instead to drink in the remedies of God in nature. He was not naïve. He knew of sin. He knew of the necessity of redemption in Christ. But he would have said that Christ purchased new eyes for us as well as new hearts. His plea was that we stop being unamazed by the strange glory of ordinary things. He ended that lecture in 1976 with a list of resolutions. As a tribute to my teacher and a blessing to your soul, I offer them for your joy. … [Read more...]

ctthhm

by Libby AnneCreated To Be His Help Meet, p. 24Debi finishes this her first chapter with a memo on the background of the word “help meet.” I sort of feel like this should have come earlier, given that most people I’ve mentioned the book to find the term odd. The word help meet appears … [Read more...]
