Quoting Quiverfull: Black People Need to Shut Up and Endure?

by Garrett Kell of John Piper's 'Desiring God' - It's a Wonderful Tim to Be Christian!Editor's note: Reading this piece I don't know if I should laugh, cry or throw up! Only a young white male Evangelical brimming with Evangelical white entitlement would be tone deaf and insensitive enough to lecture another race on how they should approach the racism in the world, and let's be very real here, in the church directed at their people.  He makes a good point later on in the unquoted part of this piece - that Americans need to reach out to the immigrants of our nation, including Muslims, with love and acceptance. Too bad most of the post is pure poison. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Why There Are Smaller Numbers of Male Missionaries?

by John Piper from Desiring God at Church Leaders.com - Why Are Women More Eager Missionaries?Editor's note: Seems to me that men not marrying, or delaying marriage, are perhaps not the most mature people in the first place. Perhaps that's just the type of guy that has no business being  missionary at all. But it is wisdom not to marry or pursue serious types of activities when you're not ready for them. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Why There Are Smaller Numbers of Male Missionaries?

by John Piper of Desiring God at Church Leaders.com - Why Are Women More Eager Missionaries?Editor's note: What? He's thinking that women have nothing in the way of control and influence over if they'll be married? What are we? Some low hanging fruit just waiting and dangling on that branch for the first lout to pick us off the tree? I think the idea that more women than men serve in missions has more to do with the fact that women are usually the core of any religious organization, the ones that do the grunt work and already outnumber men by a serious amount, not because guys aren't getting married. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women’s Sports Perverted?

by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog - Amanda Nunes Beats the Shit Out of Rhonda RouseyEditor's Note: Tim Bayly uses an expletive in the title of his post yet has the nerve to call a sport perverted? That's some double standards there! He's talking of the UFC bout from last weekend between two women. He's not objecting to the fact that UFC is a very violent sport, he's upset that women dare to participate. In an unquoted part he goes on to put down John Piper's Desiring God for publishing an article in favor of women participating in the UFC. … [Read more...]

Bonus Quoting Quiverfull: The Real War on Christmas?

by John Piper of Desiring God - Santa Claus: Harmless Fun or Tragic Distraction?Editor's note: Found this on Derick Dillard's social media. Interesting that since Ben Seewald has been spouting more liberal views that Derick is suddenly now the Duggar's fundamentalist mouthpiece. Keep in mind that this is from the same stupid mindset that believes that Starbucks having a plain red cup is somehow harming Christmas. Also, Pastor John, I can see and touch the roof on my home unlike Jesus. If you are seeing and touching Jesus the same way that you are your roof it may be time to talk to your doctor and a neurologist or psychiatrist!  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage is Hard to Glorify God?

by Adrien Segal from John Piper's Desiring God - Did You Expect Your Marriage to be Easy?Editor's note: Wow, just about every single time some patriarch or his wife talks about Biblical marriage they make it sound about as easy and attractive as scaling Mount Everest nude with no supplies or canisters of oxygen. An impossible task that's going to leave you with lots of scars, or perhaps cost you your life. You know marriage is bad in Quiverfull Evangelical Fundamentalism when the marriage advice given by hate pastor Steven Anderson start to sound reasonable. At least Anderson recognizes that men must keep tidy personally and treat their wives kindly whereas this bit makes it sound like … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Shut Up About Your Bad Marriage Because God is Using it to ‘Refine’ You?

by John Piper of Desiring God and The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood as lifted and reposted by Lori Alexander's blog Always Learning - The Cost of Covenant Keeping LoveEditor's note: Wow, talk about dangerous tripe, this entire piece, including the parts I did not quote for brevity's sake. There's even a section where it says you can never consider divorce, ever ever, that you must erase the word from your mind. What this 'stay married' post does not take into account are the many marriages that are abusive, either physically or mentally, the marriages that flounder because there is no earthly way for either partner to meet the needs of the family and a myriad of other awful … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Must Be Feminine or Else?

by Abigail Dodds from John Piper's Desiring God - The Beauty of WomanhoodEditor's note: So working outside of the home robs us of our beauty and femininity? Also, why does working and not staying home with our children equal disrespecting our uteruses? No one accuses stay at home fathers of disrespecting their gonads. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Are Only Saved Through Childbearing?

by John Piper of Desiring God - How Are Women Saved Though Childbearing?Editor's note: Childbearing is no 'curse' laid upon women from the time of Eve. It's a biological fact of the replenishment of the species. Another example of simple scientific facts used to support the idea that women are lesser or must submit. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Suffering is Totally Okay Because Glory?

by John Piper from Desiring God - Your Suffering is Working For YouEditor's note: Some subtle martyrbating going on here, claiming that God is using your suffering on earth for your eternal good. This is one of the more poisonous teachings in evangelical Christianity and it really minimizes whatever it is that the suffering person is going through by reducing it to part of some formula. Not much empathy there, is it? … [Read more...]
