Quoting Quiverfull: Women Holding Responsible Positions Over A Man Is Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by John Piper as quoted from 'Ask Pastor John' from the website Housewife Theologian - John Piper's Advice For Women In The Work ForceEditor's note: So according to Piper if the influence of a woman on men is 'non-personal' and 'non-directive' and it's for the good of everyone then it's not wrong. But the second you enter the directive realm, like his example of a female drill sergeant, you're sinning. Another example of a evangelical cultural enforcer adding dos and don'ts to the Bible. At least we know he's not having a problem with womens voices on GPS under this mental/moral game of Twister. … [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: Part 5 – Never Worry About Providing For Your Kids?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies Magazine – Is God Able to Provide For Another Baby?Editor's note: Oh so now we're supposed to plant a garden on top of all the other 'supposed to dos' Nancy throws in. She tries to shoot down each and every objection to gardening and throws in a ton of scriptures to support the crap she's spewing trying to add additional burdens to already busy mothers.  While having a garden is usually a good thing, there's just no way that would work for everyone and should never be a 'must do' thing.  Unless, of course, you have a fleet of adopted children from Africa that you can set out there weeding and picking bugs off your crops. Right, Nancy? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God Loves Emily Post?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - What's Their Answer?Editor's note: Sometimes I get the feeling that Nancy is out of things to talk about and starts scraping the bottom of the 'make others feel guilty and inadequate' barrel and posts like this one are the result. Why should one word answers not be enough? Does God worship all things polite and mannerly? Hey, at least the kid answered the question. I suppose one word answers might be considered rude but is this really the thing you want to focus on in parenting? Manners can be important but this is sort of over the top on many levels. … [Read more...]

Not Exactly Christ’s Christianity

Screen shot of IBLP website

by S.J. Reidhead cross posted from her blog The Pink FlamingoThe Christianity which is practiced by far too many members of the evangelical right is almost unrecognizable to what ‘evangelical’ churches practiced up until about 1978.  That was close to the cut-off point, when things began to change.  One of the very real problems is that I’m like the average Christian in this country.  I was living in a fool’s paradise.  Sure, I knew that things were getting a little flaky, but like everyone else, just chalked it up to things getting a little flaky.  Like just about everyone else, I never realized there was a very overt agenda, a planned take-over of the country, using a heretical version … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If You Don’t Love God, You Cannot Love Your Husband?

quotingquiverfull

by Jennifer of Blessed Femina as quoted by A Wise Woman Builds Her Home - Honoring Christ & Our HusbandsEditor's note: As in many things in fundamental evangelicalism they make the complex simple and the simple complex. Putting Biblical qualifiers on relationships is a recipe for disaster most of the time. Seems to me when you start adding rules to your life that aren't clearly spelled out in the Bible you are busily usurping the God you claim to follow, making yourself your god. What do you think dear readers? … [Read more...]

by Suzanne cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeVaughn Ohlman has posted over at his blog True Love Doesn't Wait about families and the Bible, that families must glorify God and fathers are to rule over their families, right down many generations. He claims that the church is somehow 'feminized' and that men have been stripped of their masculinity.There's just one problem, I'm not seeing much scriptural support for his extrapolations of Biblical law. … [Read more...]
