by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionThe Bible says, in Romans 3:23, "For the wages of sin is death..."This verse is very well known to both fundamentalist Christians, to which the Duggar clan belong, as well as evangelical Christianity.

Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.This week's thoughts and questions involve the Quiverfull lifestyle in the wake of the mess with the Naugler family.
