NLQ Review: The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings

paranormalconspiracy

by Suzanne TitkemeyerOkay NLQers. I know this book has not much to do with what we talk about here at No Longer Quivering, but bear with me. It does in the sense that it was written by Timothy Dailey of the Moody Bible Institute and he works at, surprise, surprise, Josh Duggar's former employer - The Family Research Council. This is another book review for Patheos.~~~~~~~~~After reading The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens and Mysterious Beings by Dr. Timothy Dailey one thing stood out to me in glaring neon - Boy, that tricky Satan is one very busy fellow with hoofs stuck in all sorts of pies. In fact, that is the main point of the entire book, anything that … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feeling Guilty – You’re Doing It All Wrong?

quotingquiverfull

by Brittany La'Vell from Whole Magazine - Are You Holding Back From God?Editor's note: So now when you confess your sins to God you have to worry that you didn't confess them right or give it all to God?? More ridiculous putting increasing qualifiers on the simplicity of Jesus in the world of scary intense fundamentalism. Why are there so many blogs out there that keep adding rules for the quiverfull or evangelical daughters to follow? Do they really not have enough real things to do so they have to keep moving the goal post to fill the time? Legalism, fear mongering, making other young women fearful and feel guilty - This writer has all the makings of a future Debi Pearl or Nancy … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – 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: And I suppose Nancy would claim that ravens came down to feed her if she was stranded on an island. For most people they do have to find food and clothing. Plus things like heating to keep a houseful of children warm instead of dressing them in their warmest clothes and force marching them around the condemned house till they were warm, like Nancy's own daughter had to do. Following Nancy's rules for Quiverfull leads to poverty and doing without, not God miraculously providing every need. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Did You Marry A Jerk? Too Bad

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? - So you're married to a jerk....Editor's note: This is Zsuzsanna's answer to a reader asking what to do if you find out you're married to a jerk. What does she do? Immediately blame the wife. No divorce ever. She doesn't even began to address things like the fact that all of us are jerks at times to our spouses, I know I have been, it's normal for there to be phases in marriage and times when you're not exactly thrilled with one another. But you push forward and make it work, or go to marriage counseling.  But there's a big difference between seasons of marriage and if you are married to someone who is genuinely cruel all of the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homeschooling God’s Way Is Always Safer Than Public School?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - A Whole Way of LifeEditor's note: In this issue of No Greater Joy magazine Michael manages to sow fear of government and all the other Evangelical Quiverfull under the bed Boogiemen into one short paragraph. That takes real talent. Interestingly as Michael is hinting at sexual abuse in public schooling this was published right before it came out that Josh Duggar molested five homeschooled girls. … [Read more...]

Are Pedophiles Hanging Out At McDonald’s And Starbucks?

Scanned in cover of People magazine from the late 1980s

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserIf you spend any time reading Evangelical Christian websites, blogs, or news sites, you will likely read things like:Making same-sex marriage legal will destroy America. Removing prayer, Bible reading, and the Ten Commandments from public schools will cause moral decline. Allowing abortion to continue will cause God to pour out his judgment and wrath on America. Barack Obama is a Kenyan-born liberal, socialist, communist Muslim who plans to institute Sharia Law, set up death panels, and arrest Christians. Besides, he’s black and his middle name is Hussein. Rock music is Satan’s music and lis … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sweep That Floor For Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Your Vision For TodayEditor's note: Every single time we post at NLQ something of Nancy's it always translates into a cheery upbeat version of 'The beating will continue until morale improves." This continues on that theme of Nancy telling you to be happy, grateful and do everything to the glory of God. While Christ did do some practical, meeting others needs sort of things he never said he was feeding the masses or washing his disciplines feet to bring glory to God. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Approving of Same Sex Marriage Will Make All Christians Third Class Citizens

quotingquiverfull

by John Zmirak from Church Leaders - If the Supreme Court Imposes Same Sex Marriage, You Could Lose Your ChurchEditor's note: One of the most perfect examples of Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalist extremism and fear mongering seen in quite a while. In a mere three paragraphs the author manages to push these scary buttons: Islam, President Obama, Gay Marriage, Abortion, Evil Government. See what he did? He hit all the big fears that run through fundamentalist Christianity, he invoked the straw boogie man. Evangelicals and Fundamentalists love to be afraid. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christians Are Called to Nasty Name Call Others?

quotingquiverfull

by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? - On Judging, Hating and Name CallingEditor's note: Zsuzsanna ends this by saying it's a-okay to call homosexuals bad names because the Bible does. She ends by citing Santa Claus and blaming the television for unsaved (in her eyes) peoples views of others. All it does is make her look like what the Southern Poverty Law Center has dubbed her husband's church, Faithful Word Baptist Church, like a member of a dangerous hate group. Someone that might go out and take pot shots at different nationalities or throw a bomb at the President, instead of a Godly woman faithfully fulfilling her self defined role of wife and mother. … [Read more...]
