questions

by Vaughn Ohlman cross posted from his blog True Love Doesn't WaitWell, another set of questions from No Longer Quivering.

Quoting Quiverfull: Easier to Submit to a Godly Man?

sacrifice

from Ladies Against Feminism - I Will Work With HimCannot determine for sure who's words these are but they appear to come from a sermon by Paul Washer titled A Biblical Husband and Father available on YouTube. There is teaching in scripture about the headship, the man and his family. There is teaching about submission. The wife is to submit to her husband.

CTBHHM: Surrendering Your Autonomy to Another

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 136—37Sometimes Debi misinterprets Bible passages, and badly. More often, though, she simply adds things, brazenly, and without even offering any of her twisted scriptures to back them up.

Image from the Hollywood Gay Pride festivities.

Feminists (including the professing evangelicals) are those who loudly … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Branded a “Destroyer”?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

by Peter Bradrick from his Facebook The past decade of my life has been defined by my close relationship with my mentor and former spiritual father. Those who know me recognize my longstanding, fierce commitment to his family, his work, and his legacy. As soon as I caught wind of what was going on, I became very involved in working towards fulfilling the duties of friendship and brotherhood – to confront a man who has been like a father to me for a third of my life and plead with him to truthfully confess, and to genuinely take responsibility for longstanding betrayal of everything we had fought together for with the hope of ultimate restoration. … [Read more...]
