Quoting Quiverfull: Have ‘Joy’ And ‘Purpose’ Or Your Children Will Be Foolish?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - More Than Controlling Their BehaviorEditor's note: Sometimes I wonder if Mr. Pearl is secretly saying and doing these things as a parody of religion or if he has the attention span/recall of a mosquito and simply doesn't remember the stuff he said before. He's always contridicting himself in his child training advice. This is a really good example of it. He's claimed before you have to control every itty bitty bit of behavior until the will of the child is broken. Now he's claiming you can only raise great kids in a home with 'joy' and 'purpose'.

Quoting Quiverfull: Indoctrinating Your Children Jack Hyles Style?

by Jack Hyles of Hyles-Anderson College and First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana from his book "How To Rear Infants"Editor's note: This was posted on Bruce Gerencser's blog and it reveals the way that children (and everyone else) are pressured to worship the preacher in Independent Fundamentalist Baptist churches. That theology has not worked out well, has it, if you go by the examples of Hyles, Jack Schaap and countless other IFB preachers who've ended their careers in scandals born from their absolute control over others. … [Read more...]
