Quoting Quiverfull: Not Having Babies is Equal to Arguing With God?

womb

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Dare We Argue With God? God's creation of our bodies is perfect, yet it seems that man often thinks he knows better than God. Our great Creator blessed us with a womb to conceive and bring forth children. And yet many women hardly want to acknowledge they have a womb. If they do, they take action to make sure that it cannot function as God intended. Men also stop the function of their fertility to their own detriment.Many think that by having a tubal ligation or vasectomy they are saving their lives. The opposite is the case. When we try to save our lives we lose them. When we lose our lives for Christ's sake, we find them (Mark 8:35). Our own way … [Read more...]

debi

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismYou’re probably wondering where today’s Created To Be His Help Meet post is. I have some sad news—there won’t be one, technically speaking. I cannot find my copy of the book, and believe me, I have looked everywhere! I have ordered a new copy (you can get them cheap if you buy them used) in case I do not find my copy, so your regularly scheduled installment will be back next Friday.I’m not going to let this break in my review series go to waste, though. I want to take some time to address something that has come up in Aletha’s reviews—the idea that women, too, come in three types. This idea does not appear in Created To Be Hi … [Read more...]

When Love Isn’t Enough – The Musser Family Tragedy – Part 3

The Musser daughter behind the bride is the same as Katie who Susanna is holding. Tommy is the same age as the son between the groom and Tommy in the back row.

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideEditor's Note: There have been some who've questions why NLQ is posting this series because they think it has nothing to do with what NLQ does. But the Musser story is the very thing that is the heart of this site, Kid-collecting Quiverfull evangelical Christian families that believe they are doing 'God's Will' by having as many children as possible, yet failing to realize that by doing so they are parenting those same children in the most minimal ways possible. Sometimes this type of lifestyle and theology leads directly to tragedies such as the recent death of Tommy Musser. Had his mother been less burdened with caring for the … [Read more...]
