by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Glory, glory hallelujah, we finally reached the end of this pile of very bad ideas!

So even if you think he sucks mightily suck it up, shut your mouth and fawn all over him. No, nope, totally not a recipe for a horrible disaster of a marriage /sarcasm. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 8 – Every Woman a Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Wow, even for Debi Pearl this is an insane amount of toxic nonsense. Being dismayed or disappointed in any way with your husband's behavior is dishonoring God? Followed by calling the man a loser? Whatever happened to simply discussing things that annoy you with your spouse in a non-threatening matter-of-fact way? There are always going to be things about other people, even your husband that will hurt you, disappoint you or just get under your skin and making a mature attempt to get the other party to understand how that affects you is never a sin! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 7 – Every Woman a Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: And then Debi goes for the most common women-blaming, reducing to less than human theme - Its THE HORMONEZ! OH NOES!! But instead of saying how hormones make women less than rational she says that hormones make men manly, protective, dominating - all masculine and things society thinks are positive in men.  Followed by 'don't ever question your man' and 'you must show pleasure' Debi's usual bucket of codswallop. It still reeks. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Every Woman a Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Wow, Debi really has a twisted understanding of exactly who and what the Proverbs 31 woman is. She's not sitting around praying, she's not running around teaching, she's not rushing about having 'fellowship' at all. She's doing what needs to be done to run her household and her business and it never mentions most of the crap on Debi's list of what a modern Proverbs 31 woman is. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Every Woman a Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: So pointing out a spiritually abusive leader to your husband and having him see what you're saying is true is also another hallmark of an 'evil Jezebel'? Makes me wonder what's going on in the churches  Michael Pearl has pastored of for even this to be thought of as manipulating and evil.  At the end of this piece Debi starts to explain what a non-Jezebel looks like in the Bible. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Every Woman a Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: So everything a woman could do under her husband's name or with his help could be construed as a Jezebel level control? More wife blaming and claiming that women are the evilz. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Every Woman A Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Debi doesn't say what to do if you are married to a man that shirks his responsibilities, forcing the wife to take over everything. But I'm pretty sure Debi would never fault the man, always calling the wife a Jezebel type. Remember, if Debi's not name calling and blaming a woman she's not happy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Every Woman A Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: This entire article is filled with so much toxic shaming and blaming that there's no one or two paragraphs that sum up the gist of it. Debi seems to be saying that a woman not making an extreme effort to get along with her husband is functioning under a 'Jezebel spirit'. People used to talk at my old church about Jezebel spirits and various women they thought were Jezebels, but they never took it to the depth Debi Pearl does. As a woman in Pearl world you can never ever get a break, everything there is the woman's fault. … [Read more...]

The “Jezebel Spirit” Teaching: Priming Churches for Spiritual Abuse

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsIt's a story my husband Jeff likes to tell from before we were married.We were both members of a coercive Christian group of "charismatic" persuasion-- meaning that the group believed in supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Like most charismatic groups, our church believed that Christians and churches could be harassed by, or even come under the power of, demonic spirits. We believed God had called us to "rebuke" such spirits in the name of Jesus and drive them out of our lives and the lives of others. … [Read more...]

Who Was That Masked Man? Part 6

by CaluluWhen we last left the Smiths they had reconciled and were determined to make everyone be best friends forever again. Nothing doing.Things ratchet up a few new levels of tension. 9/11 happens. I'm sitting in front of the television having coffee and folding clothes when CNN shows the coverage of the first tower getting hit and I'm still watching when the second plane hits the other one of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. By the time the plane hits the Pentagon and there are rumors on television of another plane being spotted on the way to Capital Hill where my husband works I was pretty wrung up. My phone kept ringing off the hook from friends and relatives wanting … [Read more...]
