Quoting Quiverfull: Many Sons?

Quoting Quiverfull: Many Sons? August 25, 2013

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – Many Sons

Why does God want us to bring forth many sons and daughters? Just for the sake of doing it? No. It is all for God. It is to fill eternity to overflowing with sons and daughters who are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Every child you bring forth and lead to salvation, will be part of that innumerable company and live forever and ever. You are in an eternity impacting and eternity filling career.

    Nancy opens her mouth and the crazy just pours out.

  • Which was first, the chicken or the egg?

    This is a twisting of the great commission: “19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

    Now, quiverfull say: Woman, do not go out to the nations and make (turn into) disciples – stay at home and make (produce from your body) disciples.

    Now I ask which doctrine came first. Was the doctrine of the womb and children thought up as a way to give significance and Christian-activity veneer to staying at home; or was staying at home thought up to focus women on the many children which was already part of the patriarchy pushers’ view?

    Except that is exceedingly stupid. Even accepting that all of a woman’s children will grow up to share her religious and political views, and that health issues, miscarriages and economics all go favourably – you’re producing one child a year. In order to exceed her salvation rate, all one has to do is convince more than one person that your view is correct, which isn’t too hard and certainly easier than raising a child.
    The cynic in me thinks it’s all about keeping women busy with constant pregnancies so they don’t have time to question a system that objectifies and devalues them.
