Quoting Quiverfull: Sugar is Godly?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Biblical Reasons to Have Sugar in Your DietEditor's note: Anderson is really cranking out the content lately. Just this morning he posted about how 'soul winning' is good for you body and soul. He's also recently posted about how God can use any foul-smelling formerly-evil thing for good in the church in complete 180 degree turn from his usual blaming and shaming of everyone outside of his tiny cultic church. He just warns against 'clicks', I think he meant 'cliques'. Here's his take on why it's a-okay to eat sugar, just in moderation. Moderation is key to many things in life, including religion. Sugar isn't for everyone no matter how … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Gardening is Super-Godly!?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Gardens Are Precious!Editor's note: Nancy's back on the subject of gardens being oh so Godly again. This gardening thing is a new wrinkle in her theology, the first year she's made such a big deal out of planting a garden. She apparently thinks that buying vegetables and fruit from the super market or farmers market isn't right either. Wonder what is driving all this drivel about gardens this year? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stay Home or God Will Dry Up Your Womb?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - MisplacedEditor's note: There is so much fear mongering and discouraging threats in this piece that I had a hard time figuring which horrible idea to use as the title. One of the worse pieces I've seen from this ministry with threats about what God will do and how Satan will steal away your children away if you work outside of the home. A road map for making mothers very fearful. Oh, and Nancy is also doing her less than stellar Biblical word interpretations as well. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Polygamy and the ‘Biblical’ Man?

by Vaughn Ohlman of The Practical Theonomist and Let Them Marry - Is Polygamy Forbidden in the Scripture?Editor's note: While Mr. Ohlman is rushing around doing damage control and erasing/rewriting large swaths of Let Them Marry so that it doesn't make him sound quite as creepy as "Game of Thrones" Craster he's completely neglected the many other blogs he's written on. Many of the same thoughts and toxic rules for marrying are on all the other sites. Here's a bit about polygamy where Von is trying to debate someone else. The person he is debating remarks are in bolded italics, Von's are in plain text. … [Read more...]

by Debi Pearl in the newest issue of No Greater Joy Magazine – Why Are My Teens Rebellious?Editor's note: This is the last little bit.
