Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Light?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - One of the Greatest What do you think is one of the greatest things we should have in our homes? I'd love to hear your response. I think it is the light of God. God is light and the very first thing He spoke into being was light. Jesus came to this earth to be the light of the world. He confessed in John 9:5: "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."He is no longer physically in the world, but now He lights the world by dwelling in us.

The light of God in you exposes all darkness, danger, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Grumble About Cooking?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Pass On The Tradition It's time to cook supper. "Not again," you sigh. "Why can't I have a break from cooking night after night?"

The description of her "good works" are, "If she has brought up children, if she has shown hospitality to strangers, if she was washed the satins' (sic) feet, if she has assisted those in distress, and if she has devoted herself to every good work." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Birth Control is THE DEVIL!!!

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Line of Demarkation (sic, Nancy lacks spelling skills too) To which kingdom do you belong? God's kingdom is a kingdom of life, love, light, and liberty. Satan's kingdom is one of lies, deception, death, and destruction. He is a murderer! That's what Jesus said in John 8:44, "He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth; because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it."Because he is a murderer, no wonder he is the mastermind behind birth control, sterilization, and abortion.

Quoting Quiverfull: Stay Sweet?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Sour Grapes or Sweet?I feel very sad when I see mothers with a sour face. Down in the mouth. Always a frown. And I see a lot of them. This is not God's picture of a mother. In Psalm 128:3 God paints a picture of the wife in a home that is blessed of the Lord. It tells us that she is a " fruitful vine" in the very heart of her home. Not only does this wife find joy in her home, but she is a fruitful vine, bringing forth luscious sweet fruit. The grapes of a wild unpruned vine are usually bitter. The fruit of a cultivated vine are sweet. … [Read more...]
