Clever goat knows to climb up to get fed by tourists in the Mennonite community in Central Virginia - Image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Shepherding Our FlockEditor's note: Be sure to go to the original site and read Nancy's entire screed on sheep, and how they cannot care for themselves at all. She tries to say that the sheep are like us, that we cannot feed ourselves spiritually or clean ourselves, or anything else, without her version of God. Below is her dig at working mothers and how they are like the unGodly goats mentioned in the Bible. No matter what Nancy says I think I'd rather be a goat because goats can survive on all sorts of odd foodstuffs and they are more sure footed for climbing over obstacles and mountains. They are also far more clever than the average sheep. I want … [Read more...]

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: So who controls Daddy's sin urges if Michael is claiming that children are naturally sinful and flesh and blood just like him? Go to the bathroom with your child? No outside contact at all? Sounds like prison to me. … [Read more...]

Stepping On Lego

by Living Liminal cross posted from her blog Living Liminal I've just read a post by Matt B Redmond in which he talks about the idea of a "messy" christian life. In it he talks about his boys having to do some cleaning up: "Last night, we asked our boys to clean up the den because it was messy. Legos were everywhere. Their socks and shoes were scattered across the room. Library books covered one area. So they cleaned it up." At the end one reader left a comment: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – We Were Created to Judge Others?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Bible In The Home | Do We Have Permission to Judge?Editor's note: Is this really judging or just good parenting with some wisdom of the dangers lurking about? There is a lot in the original article that seems to confuse using wisdom or common sense with judging or judgmentalism right along side judging others for a long laundry list of vague stuff. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Pleading With Your Children Over Their Sin

quotingquiverfull

by Tim Challies from Challies.Com - Help! My Kids Are Looking At Porn!Editor's note: While there is some good advice in this article, such as not heaping your child with shame after you find them looking at internet porn, there's also some pretty less than perfect responses too. In the Evangelical Quiverfull world where everything is hypersexualized it's considered a sin to have normal childhood curiosity. So the parents go right into over reaction mode. Is this healthy? There are much better ways to handle catching your child looking at porn than most of this.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Rest For the Weary?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - God Makes You Strong For The JobEditor's note: Wow, now that is some shaming/blaming for those who are sick and exhausted! Where in the Bible does it state that you have to have a perfectly cleaned home and scrubbed perfect children? Guess it's easier to do when you have a passel of adopted kids from another country to behave like servants. Oh, that's right, those adopted kids disappeared without much of a trace. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Speak God’s Word All the Time or Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - We Dare Not Keep Our Mouths ShutEditor's note: If you take all of Nancy's various advice you'd be so confused at this point considering many of her postings tell us to stay sweet and keep your mouth shut. Apparently we're allowed to speak only when it involves scripture. The way the one sentence is worded makes it seem that we're supposed to put our mouths into our children's mouths. So confused here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Treating Children Like Burdens?

quotingquiverfull

by Carrie Anne Hudson from Rescued Remnant - Raising or Resenting Our ChildrenEditor's note: Found this particular blog through one of the crowd funded adoption blogs. This woman is a missionary in China along with her family and likes to post things poking at things in American culture she doesn't like disguised as Christian thought. Here she's claiming that there are large numbers of parents that treat their children as if they are burdens instead of valuable members of the family. While I'm sure there are some out in the world that do treat their children like burdens and are resentful it doesn't seem to be huge numbers of folks acting like this out in public, no matter what belief … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Do Not Tolerate Disobedient Children?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - It Starts In The HomeEditor's note: Nancy seems to be saying that making your children mind is the most important thing you can do as a mother. She doesn't give specifics for accomplishing this obedience but this sounds very close to the Pearls child training beliefs even if there is no open mention of physical discipline. … [Read more...]
