Quoting Quiverfull: Godly Response To Emotional Abuse?

quotingquiverfull

by Rick Thomas from Rick Thomas.net - Emotional Abuse:  Its origins, its cureEditor's note: Another perfect example of why the evangelical and fundamentalist Christian crowds are so toxic to those struggling with depression, spiritual abuse issues, verbal abuse and issues dealing with human emotions. Thomas claims that what we call emotional abuse is sin and that it is not causing real damage, that we must respond to the person 'sinning' against us with love, forgiveness and scripture. What a victim-blaming, self-righteous, unhelpful load of hog wash! If someone is abusing you in any fashion the best thing to do is to leave the abuser, get far away from them and their attempts to hurt … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Girls Wearing What They Want Are Sinning Against Jesus?

quotingquiverfull

by Reagan Ramm from his site Reagan Ramm.com - Modesty: A Guy's Opinion Part 2Editor's note: Several of the blogs we quote here for the Quoting Quiverfull feature have used Reagan Ramm's Part 1 on Modesty to justify all sorts of shaming. Here's the second part and it gets no better. Now he's claiming that if you wear something you want to wear and it causes someone to stumble you've lost the freedom to make clothing choices plus sinned against Jesus. Then he goes on in his blog to list what is and isn't modest. What gives him this right? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: God’s ‘Rights’ Are The Only ‘Rights’ That Matter?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.Com - Biblical Human Rights vs. American Human RightsEditor's note: There is just so much sheer awfulness here it's hard to pick out the worst part to quote so I'm using his summation. But be sure to read the entire blog posting. He's even claiming because slavery was mentioned in the Bible that it's a-okay for humans to own other humans as slaves. He doesn't seem to realize that if you don't believe the Bible is true, then you don't believe in those spelled out 'Biblical Rights' and our government will not force you to believe. Imagine how horrible if would be with guys like this seized government power, repealed the seperation of … [Read more...]

In 2014, We Still Consider Bloodshed as a Natural Consequence for Petty Sins

campfire

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous Circumspection My friends, bear with me. I spent until 2AM listening to this sermon, and then replied to the lovely person that sent it to me to critique. Here was my response:   So many thoughts. I'm very glad I left religion behind. Especially his horrible god. He listed aaaall these mercies that his god bestowed upon David and yet he kept overlooking a gaping hole in his logic: David's son still died. Where was God's mercy there? Why the hell do we sit back and nod our heads, agreeing with the theology that, when a sin is committed, death logically follows Christianity is based in blood. It's barbarism. We live in 2014 and we still w … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Making Them Obey?

obey

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - How Can They Do It? I know, dear mothers, it's easier said than done to teach our children to obey. One mother wrote that her young daughter flatly refuses to obey her! What on earth can we do? We are not dealing with robots. Do you sometimes wish they were robots who would just do everything you asked? Instead, we are dealing with flesh and blood. Yes, I said the word, flesh. … [Read more...]

Fighting the Doctrine of Worthlessness

worthlessness

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous Circumspection Let's toss out the Bible. Ah...now I've lost a bunch of you. That's okay, I know you'll keep reading in order to strengthen your beliefs, so I'll just hope that my words "won't come back void." Yep...two can play at this game.You've heard it said, "A little leaven leavens (or leaveneth for you KJV types keeping score) the whole lump." This phrase comes from the Apostle Paul, encouraging the new Christian church to dump those that were naughty. Kick them out. Excommunicate them, if you will. The idea was that the naughty member would, in time, permeate the rest of the church, making them all naughty. … [Read more...]

Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis, Dinosaurs and the SIN of Smoking

sinsmoking

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way Forward(Editorial note: Those that might post comments here to Bruce suggesting spiritual things should read this first, another excellent post by Bruce.)Recently, our youngest son moved out and he left behind some trading cards for our grandson. He had hundreds of trading cards, including some from Answers in Genesis. I am not sure how old these card are, but I suspect they are at least 15 years old. I did not know these cards were in the box and my oldest son found them when he was going through them with our grandson.  We had a lot of fun … [Read more...]
