Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Polygamy and the ‘Biblical’ Man?

by Vaughn Ohlman from Let Them Marry and The Practical Theonomist - Is Polygamy Forbidden in Scripture?Editor's note: We're still on our magical mystery tour of Mr. Ohlman's crap. Von continues to lock horns with some other 'good patriarch' over the issue of polygamy, putting himself in the pro-polygamy camp. His opponent's remarks are bolded and italicized, Von's are in plain text. … [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. Debi Pearl is starting to sound more and more like she suffers from Stockholm Syndrome and projected that out onto everyone she meets. Do you think she started out so mean and blaming or is this something that gradually developed as Michael abused her? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Any Other Man’s Attention Wrecks Your Marriage?

by Becky Thompson of BeckyThompson.com – Beware of Quicksand: How One Stranger’s Comment Changed My Marriage ForeverEditor's note: This last bit makes me feel sad for the author. Marriage shouldn't be a battlefield that you're constantly having to toil at to make work. If it's that much work and stress it's not much of a marriage there to revive. Sometimes a kind comment has nothing to do with attempting to turn your heart towards anyone, it's a small thing done by someone that sees you're having some sort of issue that day, or senses you need a little bit of a lift to get through your day. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Serveant Leadership Does Not Mean Serving?

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - Feminism in DenialEditor's note: It's posts like this that make me wonder what version of the Bible these guys are reading because the one I'm familiar with has Jesus doing things like washing the feet of others, multiplying the loaves and fishes and doing things for others - the example of servant leadership. But in this type of Quiverfull Evangelicalism it's warped into a 'make everyone else serve you' theology. Wilson, I think you're gonna have some 'splaining to do.. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Pray Too Much Because It’s Idolatry?

by Peaceful Wife from Peacefulwife.com - Can You Pray Too Much For Your Marriage?Editor's note: This blog was found through a friend of a friend of Biblical Gender Roles. Did you know there are tons of Christian blogs focused on forcing your spouse to have sex with you? Both sexes even. This bit illustrates some of the more crazy-making ideas that get passed around Evangelical Quiverfull - That idea that you're not doing it right as defined by someone else - that extra Biblical nonsense where the writer/ministry/pastor follows a random thought down a toxic rabbit hole. This says you're not praying enough, this says you pray too much and another claims your prayers are you worshiping your … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God is Micromanaging Your House?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - By The SpiritEditor's note: Sounds like Nancy is running out of things to claim that God wants to control. Now she's claiming He is even wanting to decide how you store your pots and pans and where you put the spice rack. Sounds like a petty and controlling God with nothing better to do, not worth worshiping and bowing down too. 1 Condiments 3:4 "Thou shall not store the pans under the sink, and must line up your can labels!" only exists in the recesses of Nancy's mind. … [Read more...]

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

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...]
