by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles - How the Modern Practice of 'Christian Dating' is Cruel to Men and as always linked through Do Not Link for safety purposes.Editor's note: Larry just goes right back to that women owe men sex thing that is the pillar of his entire Christian faith, that does not square at all with the historical and cultural Jesus of the Bible. I feel almost sorry for him, he'll never know what it's like to have friends you're emotionally intimate with that has exactly zero to do with any type of romance, sex or expectations of sex. He's really missing out on one of the best experiences of life, intimate friends. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Dating Only Encourages Men to Have Sexy Sinful Thoughts?

quotingquiverfull

by Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles - How the Modern Practice of 'Christian Dating' is Cruel to Men and as always linked through Do Not Link for safety purposes.Editor's note: This piece starts off with a story about a young man and woman in Bible college who date and hold to the strict rules of no handholding or side hugs until their engagement only to have the man start imaging what his fiance looks like naked. It's a hop, skip and a jump to his attempting to touch her breasts and derriere, leading to a broken engagement. According to Larry the problem isn't that he's just a normal red-blooded healthy male dealing with emotions and hormones, the problem is that dating is the type … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Defile Someone’s Future Spouse?

quotingquiverfull

by Ray Alcorn from Eternal Perspective Ministries - 23 Guidelines to Protect Your Purity in DatingEditor's note: This seems to be a new idea popping up in fundamentalist Christianity that you have to keep your love-interest somehow 'pure' for their future husband or wife. A bunch of extra Biblical extrapolation is what it seems like from here.  Are these 'Good Christian' guys afraid someone might gain enough experience to judge them against and find them lacking? Or is this simply another attempt to control someone else because Bible? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Help! I’m Falling In Love With ‘GASP’! An Atheist!?

quotingquiverfull

by Paula Hendricks from Lies Young Women Believe - I'm Falling in Love with an AtheistEditor's note: Oh no! Because it's just not possible that two people could ever possibly respect and love one another if they don't agree on faith? I'm sure that will come as a huge surprise to the many inter faith couples out there that have been successfully married for many years. If your faith is so shallow that it's challenged by anyone not of the same faith then perhaps you need to examine exactly why that is. … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 5 – Cinderella

Preparing

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideToday, Leah lays out another example of how courtship creates angst, confusion and general insanity. David and I met at his work.  He was giving a presentation and I was sitting in the front row.  After the meeting, we talked briefly but we both thought the same thing, "What are the chances they know the Lord?"  I later called David with a work question and suddenly he was talking about God.  I remember hanging up the phone and thinking, "I totally misjudged this guy!" Interesting.  I would like to go on the record that I've NEVER thought "Hmmm.  Is that speaker a saved Christian?" before.  Likewise, if I call someone on busine … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 3 – Cinderella

Preparingtobeahelpmeet

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideI found this next part confusing. Leah is the author, but spends most of the time talking about David. I'm pretty sure Leah is an actual person - not a Debi character - because bits of the story seem plausible. David flew to Papua New Guinea for a two-month mission trip with orphans when he was 13 years old. Did David go to Papau New Guinea to work with orphans OR take a group of orphans on a two-month mission trip to Papau New Guinea? … [Read more...]

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't WaitTrigger warning: Hard core patriarchal views that may make your nauseous! [The following post is purely fictional. No reference to any specific living person should be implied.]Ok, so you broke it off with what’s-his-name. That guy that, a few days or weeks ago you plastered all over your Facebook wall and spent dizzying hours telling your girlfriends about. We all understand why you did it. The guy turned out to be a jerk. From so far away we can’t tell exactly what kind of jerk, and you have very properly not cared to share that all over your Facebook page, but a jerk of some sort. There are so many types of jerks, but  he was one of them … [Read more...]
