Quoting Quiverfull: Redefining Patriarchy?

patriarchymeaning

by Kevin Swanson cross posted from Generations With Vision I am not a patriarchal-ist. I have never been a patriarchal-ist, and I’ve never called myself a patriarchal-ist, and here are a few reasons: 1. The Bible employs the Greek word “patriarchy” to refer to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Acts 2:29; 7:8,9;, Heb. 7:4), and I’m not Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob. I’m some guy named Kevin Swanson. It would be arrogant for me to assume that I will bear the influence of men like this over the next 2000 years. … [Read more...]

by R.C. Sproul Jr. posted at Ladies Against Feminism and Highlands Ministries - Homeschooling and the Problem of Adam and Eve LAF Editor’s Note: In spite of the fact that this is written to men, this is a good read for women. Helpful for understanding our tendencies and what to do about it. Eve’s Problem Husbands, we have a problem, and it has existed from the fall.

Why I am a Christian Feminist

christianfeminist

by Samantha cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons So, I got an interesting question on twitter this morning. “John” asked me “how does modern day feminism and Christianity complement each other?” and it occurred to me that while I’ve talked a lot about how I became a feminist, and why I’m a feminist, and why I think Christianity desperately needs feminism . . . I don’t think I’ve talked about why I specifically identify as an egalitarian and Christian feminist, even though I’ve spent quite a bit of time talking about why I disagree with complementarianism. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Easier to Submit to a Godly Man?

sacrifice

from Ladies Against Feminism - I Will Work With Him Cannot determine for sure who's words these are but they appear to come from a sermon by Paul Washer titled A Biblical Husband and Father available on YouTube. There is teaching in scripture about the headship, the man and his family. There is teaching about submission. The wife is to submit to her husband. Many people hate that because of teachings of feminism. Other people hate it because of the massive abuses with regard to that teaching. … [Read more...]
