Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 3 Contrasting The Types (Psychic Michael Knows All)

Preparingtobeahelpmeet

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonp 130-131Last time we read a story about Debi going to a doctor's office, and applying the "foolproof" techniques of identifying type to relate to two different doctors. Today, we're continuing this story. Well, I say continuing this story, but really, Michael starts extrapolating about the docs. This has to be the most blatant use of his prophetic powers yet. In fact, I would say this rivals some of Debi's famous knowing-everything-about-everyone judgments. I hope you're excited. I know I am! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Michael Pearl Invented ‘Healthy’ Patriarchy?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Balanced PatriarchEditor's note: Even as far back as 2009 Michael was throwing shade at Bill Gothard and Doug Phillips over their patriarchal teachings, well before the news that both men are sexual predators emerged. The original article has a longer version of the history of patriarchy and society's problems, but we're picking up the history at the time that the Pearls claim they started practicing it. Lots of blaming others per usual.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Blame Your Lazy Husband For Not Changing?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: Debi loves to call women lazy and berated them, but apparently men get a pass for being lazy. It all boils down to the wife being fully submissive. Yeah, like that's going to work. So what can a woman do if her husband wants her to send their children to public school and go to college? She can become a Proverbs 31 wife. She can study, learn, grow, and become successful. She can win his confidence in her as a teacher of his children. In all my 40 years of ministering to families, I have never seen a husband (no matter how stiff-necked and against homeschooling) who didn’t respond with thanksgiving when his wife b … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Bible Says Men Own Women?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Does the Bible teach the concept of "Human Property"?Editor's note: Before anyone asks: No, this is not a parody or a site like 'The Onion' this is real! This guy is really borderline Mens Rights Activists (MRA) with culture reinforcement from the Bible. Slavery hasn't been the law of the land for over 160 years now but you'd never know it from his statements. Women and children are owned by the husband/father/patriarch according to this guy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 11 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 2Editor's note: So Michael advocates allowing your sons to have legitimate adult responsibilities and follows that up with a story about beating his adult son at wrestling, saying, "Made him eat sand. It was a great feeling—a measure of my manhood." Michael tells you to do one thing yet it sounds like he's doing quite another entirely. It's not supposed to be about him or his so called 'manhood,' it's supposed to be about raising healthy well adjusted children into young adulthood. … [Read more...]

The Man as “Prophet, Priest and King” of Wife and Children

kristenrosser

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsThe teaching that a man is the "prophet, priest and king" of his home isn't new.  I've certainly heard it before.  In fact, the fundamentalist website National Center for Family-Integrated Churches recently reprinted a piece written in the 1600s by a Puritan named William Gurnall.  Here's a sample: … [Read more...]

Am I Am Prophet, Priest or King?

Christianpatriarchalwatchlistforparents

by Emily from Christian Patriarchal Watch List For Parents as quoted from Facebook“Is there a test that will tell me if I’m more of a prophet, a priest, or a king?”This is a quote from a young male church planter. He goes on,"I’ve gotten this question a lot lately, and to my knowledge, no such assessment exists.[emphasis added] Most leaders, however, will recognize themselves quite readily in one of the three general profiles..." http://wenatcheethehatchet.blogspot.com/…/prophet-priest-an… … [Read more...]

Family Life Today: Poised to Take Over the Vacancy Left by Vision Forum Ministries

suzannetitkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWhen the news of the unwanted sexual encounters between Vision Forum's Doug Phillips and Lordes Torres came out followed by the closing of both Vision Forum Ministries and their for profit Vision Forum Inc it left quite a void in the world of Christian Dominionism, Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements. Everyone speculated who would take over from the powerhouse dominionist ministry of Vision Forum. But those that might have stepped in to fill the void left by the closing of Vision Forum had their own scandals to deal with: first Bill Gothard of IBLP/ATI, who is huge in the world of homeschooling and dominionism, was accused of groping teenagers working at ATI … [Read more...]
