CindyFoster

by Cindy Foster cross posted from  her blog Finding FundamentalI have a couple of predominant thoughts about the most recent revelation of Josh Duggar’s sexual deviancy.To all the fearful, loving Christian parents:There are no invisible walls-- no matter how well-intentioned, no matter how carefully and scripturally constructed, no matter how efficiently guarded-- thick enough to protect your young from their own humanity. … [Read more...]

Oh To Be A Pharisee! A Church’s Love Affair With Rules!

CindyFoster

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Finding Fundamental (God) Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. II Corinthians 3:6 Why would anybody in their right mind want to live by the letter of Old Testament Law when the New Testament clearly teaches they have been set free?I believe an honest comparison of the ancient, biblical Pharisee to the modern-day 'Pharisee' in all of us could answer this question. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Christianity and Divorce?

quotingquiverfull

by an anonymous letter writer asking Michael Pearl's advice on divorce and remarriage at No Greater Joy - Divorce and RemarriageEditor's note: This is a bit unusual of a posting. Instead of directly quoting Michael Pearl on some topic he's bloviating on and putting others down in I'm posting the sad letter his ministry received by someone who sounds like they need help. This is what can happen when you try to legalistically try to follow every word in the Bible. Michael does not directly answer her question on if her marriage is adultery. Instead he tries to sell her his new book being published on Nov. 1, 2015 on divorce and remarriage, which is why I'm not posting his reply to her … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Problem Doesn’t Exist Because I’ve Never Seen It Before?

quotingquiverfull

by JW from Thoughts, Opinions and Little Discoveries - Fundamentalism Gone WrongEditor's note: Posting this because the article goes on to discuss how NLQ found Vyckie Garrison hates God. Even though this type of legalism and Quiverfull goes on in most churches this Evangelical author seems to think it's limited to the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist and Fundamentalists in general. This is one of those fallacies in Christianity, that abuse is rare and the fault of the victim because they weren't practicing the 'right' type of Christianity. As usual the grammar, spelling and formatting go to the original author, I have not changed a thing. … [Read more...]

callmemaybe

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionSo, I want to tell you a story. A story of hope. A story of looking back in life and weeping. Looking forward and seeing hope for the children of mine, given to me through the wonders of humanity's ability toIt was the summer of 2012. Call Me Maybe swept the United States, captivating the attention of every person below the age of fourteen. The song was dumb. Pointless. Bubble gum pop-y. Tried and true (translation: boring) lyrics. Sung by a lovely young woman, yet a complete waste of time. Unless, of course, you like your music in small doses of sugary substances, digesting it quickly, and feeling hungry for more … [Read more...]

Quotes1-300x250

by Colin Campbell in Meat For Men - Biblical Fatherhood: Role Modeling Love The phrase "all things " is incredible and could include vast multitudes of personal desires, as well as impersonal. However, we cannot expect God to answer any prayer that is outside of His character and will for our lives. We are only entitled to hope for "all things" that are within the boundaries of His will. … [Read more...]
