Quoting Quiverfull: You Will Wilt If You Do Not Embrace Motherhood Right Now?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Which One Are You? Wilting, Surviving or Flourishing?Editor's note: More pushing of the old guilt buttons and making any woman that isn't overjoyed at being a housewife and a mother of many feel guilty as can be. It's what Nancy specializes in, at least when she's not hiding what happened to her African adoptees. Happy, Happy, Happy or you get the hose! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stop Stressing You Selfish Woman?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Do You Need Refreshing?Editor's note: So let me get this straight: you're stressed out and need refreshing so Nancy says you have to yoke yourself to Jesus, even though this doesn't take away or ease whatever it is that's stressing you out? I must be missing something here because it sounds like she's telling you to take on more burdens. Nancy Campbell word salad. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Keep Your Children From Worldly Temptation?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Can You Do It?Editor's note: One thing you can count on from Nancy Campbell, she stays consistently on message. Too bad her message is always 'You are not a good enough mother unless you are doing all the things I outline' which, in my mind, translates to something close to 'The beatings will continue until morale improves' Yeah, like that works. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Just Like That You Changed?

Quoting

by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield in Today's Christian Woman- From Lesbian Professor to Pastor's WifeEditor's note: This seems to be a common theme in Evangelical Christianity, this belief that you can just walk away from the type of sexuality you have lived in for years.

Guilt, the Essence of Evangelical Christianity

Image by Bruce Gerencser used with permission

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserWhat would the Evangelical Christianity be without guilt?Guilt, despite what preachers say, is the engine that powers the Evangelicalism.Often preachers will try to hide guilt by giving it other names like conviction. But no matter how they try to hide it, guilt plays a prominent part in the day-to-day lives of those who profess to be followers of Jesus Christ.Think about it for a moment. The Bible presents God as a righteous, holy, judging, wrathful, deity. In the Old Testament this God was unapproachable except by a  few chosen people. People who got too close wound up dead. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Half Mothering?

worriedmother

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Half Mothering or Full Mothering? Christ, who lives in us is "prophet, priest, and king." I believe that every father should be a prophet to his family, seeking God for His ways and speaking God's counsel to His family. But, we as mothers also have a daily responsibility to speak the counsel of God to our children. Motherhood is even more than nurturing, feeding, and caring for our children. It is our God-given duty to feed their souls and spirits as well as their bodies. Even more so. … [Read more...]
