Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Worry About The Children You Already Have, Pop Out More?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - When Should We Stop Blessings?Editor's note: It's pretty obvious that any sane person would answer Nancy's question with "When we've decided we don't want any more children", or "We can barely feed the ones we have", or "Because this is wrecking my health." Nancy takes none of that in to consideration, it's all have as many as you can no matter what the realities are of your life.

Quoting Quiverfull: Good Stewards of Money Are Disobeying God?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Logic or Faith?Editor's note: Nancy has started to answer some of the comments from her posts that don't line up with the pump out the babies or else theology she preaches on her site. They are perfect examples of the breathtakingly bad theology preached in the Quiverfull movement that ignores all common sense for a twisted messed up pile of illogical mixed with Bible.

Why didn't God provide for them? … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Live Like You Are In The 1880s?

This is a new series we’re going to start running on Thursdays. 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. Granted, the Naugler family does the entire off-the-grid thing very poorly, unlike most Quiverfull families that go off grid.

Which brings me to this question - Why is it that the lifestyle of living as close to how our pioneer ancestors lived is upheld as the perfect standard in Quiverfull?
