Quoting Quiverfull: Parsing Nancy Campbell – What Does This Mean?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Are You a Well-Digger?Editor's note: Posting this because it's so unclear and word-salad-y. Is Nancy trying to say that you must pray more, read your Bible more, try to press into God more? Her meaning isn't very clear here and it's one of the few recent posts at her 'Women's Encouragement' that is not just a memed photograph or an announcement about a baby shower/bridal shower or asking for prayer for an ill grandchild. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Being ‘Modern’ Will Destroy You?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Highway Or The BywayEditor's note: More from the Fear-Mongerer in Chief telling women to stay home, stay fearful and don't do anything not laid out in the Bible. Every time Nancy writes a piece it makes me think of the old phrase, 'The beatings will continue until moral improves.' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 2Editor's note: Now Michael is responding to questions from his earlier posting on this subject. More doubling down on sin in other folks homes. Plus that whole old Christian martyrbating belief that the Devil is literally under ever bush seeking to feast on some poor helpless young adult former homeschooler. That old Devil is a busy dude the way they talk about him.This is part two of Michael's five part series on SGA jumping the family ship. Like part one at the end of each multi part bit we'll take a couple of days QQ breather  from the series before going on to the next part. It's just simply too toxic to do in one fell … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 5 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Now Michael seems to think that fun, joy and laughter are some sort of bizarre tools of the devil instead of normal human experiences. "True" joy is allowed, but he doesn't explain what makes "true" joy so different than regular joy. Same song, different day.This long series is from 2005 and we're still on only the first point. Will be posting all of the five different articles he wrote on 'Jumping Ship' but will take a several days break between each article. Too much Michael Pearl at the same time can be toxic to your appetite and incompatible with joy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping ShipEditor's note: Gasp! Michael just admitted that even atheists can live a "good life"! But then he goes right back into his toxic blaming shaming speech of referring to public school children as "Sodomites," cancelling out anything good he might say about anyone without his worldview. Followed by some ridiculous twaddle about 'natural life' and 'Jesus life'. Ugh. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Kids Saying ‘F*ck’ & Explaining Bestiality in Church?

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - SanctuaryEditor's note: Now Michael is claiming that youth groups in church are a hotbed of seduction and that the church is filled with pedophiles and seducers fishing for others to indoctrinate. If he really believes this when why isn't he advocating each family do their own home church without any outsiders? Sorry, but it's unlikely that every single church is filled with those wanting to sexually abuse children. It's a little farfetched to claim every church is that way. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Avoiding ‘The World’ While You Wait For Mr. Godly Right?

by Lisa from Young Keepers Of The Home - When You Become Jealous Of The WorldEditor's note: This young woman seems to be throwing some very serious shade at those not in the CPM world. Did she learn this at the knee of Debi Pearl because it sounds very much like what Debi teaches in her book on waiting to be married 'Preparing To Be A Help Meet' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Homechurch Too?

by Mary Pride from a New York Time's article about the Pride family & homeschooling - A Home-School Pioneer Looks to Its Future For example, right now Mrs. Pride, who lives with her husband and, at the moment, five of her children outside St. Louis, does not regularly attend any church, although they have regular “home church” on Sunday evenings. She offered many reasons none of her most recent churches had worked out. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Forbidden Fruit

by Bill Gothard of ATI from his site billgothard.com - Conquering Temptations: Looking at "Forbidden Fruit" "Forbidden fruit" appeals to the lusts of our flesh, the lusts of our eyes, or the pride of life. "All that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world" (1 John 2:16). … [Read more...]

Fun is Not in the Bible, You Say?

by Cindy Foster cross posted from her blog Baptist Taliban and BeyondI borrowed this from a facebook status today. It reminded me of a particular notion The Preacher was ‘inspired’ with and later emphasized in a sermon. … [Read more...]
