Quoting Quiverfull: Are You ‘Righteous’ Enough?

righteous home

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - What Does It Take?"Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people"(Proverbs 14:34). We can only have a righteous nation as we have righteous homes. We can only have righteous homes as we have righteous mothers and fathers in living in those homes and who are raising righteous children. QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and t … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Three Types of Women – Part 3

bridezillas

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideDebi moves on to Priestly/Steady/Servant women."My daughter who wrote the Teacher's Guide for this book is a Servant, similar to a Priest type.  From the time she was a small child, she "mothered" her little sister.  She always enjoyed caring for the elderly.  She was a wonderful young daughter, helping me do anything around the house."That sounds like a miserable childhood, actually.  The daughter, who she never bothers to name in the chapter, is her second daughter Shiloh."She is a peacemaker, kind, and considerate." People never cease to amaze me.  Sometimes the apple falls far away from the tree. … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” review: 3-18, “New Marriage, Same Spouse”

bad-dobby

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons [content note: sexual violence, emotional abuse] I’m doing something different with Real Marriage than how I reviewed Fascinating Womanhood and Captivating; with the last two books, I’ve read the entire thing before I started and then did one chapter at a time, trying to keep the message of the whole book in mind. After reading the first few chapters of this book, I realized I couldn’t handle that– not spiritually, not emotionally, not psychologically. So, for this review, what you’ll be reading from me will lean in the direction of gut reaction and instinct, since I don’t know where Mark and Grace are taking this. … [Read more...]

Burning Down The Woodshed

woodshed

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons As my partner can attest to, one of the things that have stuck with me from growing up in the Deep South is my reliance on idiomatic Southern expressions. In my area, “trip to the woodshed” was the most commonly used euphemism for corporal punishment, and while the adults who used this term obviously meant it humorously, hearing it made me feel a little sick. “I’m going to take you out back to the woodshed!” conjured images, for me, of lashings and beatings and screaming boys and girls– but in that old-fashioned Disney way, with the too-red cheeks and too-round eyes and deep furrows in the mother’s brow and the animation sequ … [Read more...]

Command v. Suggestion: “Wives, Submit!” and “Husbands, Love!”

submitlove

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, Feminism Any Christian Patriarchy advocate reading my post yesterday would surely have been shaking his or her head and saying “but it’s all about servant leadership, not a dictatorship!” or “women may be commanded to submit to their husbands, but God also commands men to love their wives!” These are the two go-to excuses made by defenders of Christian Patriarchy, who argue that those men who are dictatorial and domineering simply aren’t doing it right. … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Do Women Have Types?

debi

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismYou’re probably wondering where today’s Created To Be His Help Meet post is. I have some sad news—there won’t be one, technically speaking. I cannot find my copy of the book, and believe me, I have looked everywhere! I have ordered a new copy (you can get them cheap if you buy them used) in case I do not find my copy, so your regularly scheduled installment will be back next Friday.I’m not going to let this break in my review series go to waste, though. I want to take some time to address something that has come up in Aletha’s reviews—the idea that women, too, come in three types. This idea does not appear in Created To Be Hi … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Keeping Your Wandering Feet (and Vagina) Home?

If you Google Image the words "Harlot Feet" most of what you end up with are pictures of fancy handknit socks!

by Vaughn Ohlman of True Love Doesn't Wait - Wandering FeetWe haven't visited Mr. Ohlman in quite some time, but he seems to be under the mistaken impression that one of the recent QQ pieces where we were quoting Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies as well as other women was something he posted.Nope, the last time we posted anything by Vaughn was way back in February, mere days after St. Valentines Day - Being A Stay At Home Mom Stops Affairs. Here's a hint, it doesn't! That was the only time Matthew Henry has come up on NLQ. Von, adjust your calender or stop doing whatever it is that is robbing you of your sense of time/date/reality.In that piece we were discussing Titus 2 and … [Read more...]
