Quoting Quiverfull: Who Decides the Definition of “Apostate”?

Quoting Quiverfull: Who Decides the Definition of “Apostate”? December 12, 2013
It might not be a literal sin, but it’s a crime against fashion

by Kevin Swanson of Generations With Vision – Homeschool Apostates and Kathryn Joyce’s Sins

And, yes, yes. We can see that faithlessness tends to be generational and builds on itself from generation to generation.

I make no bones about it.  We’re in the minority.  The masses are moving towards apostasy. The millennial generation is far more likely to be pro-homosexual, pro-evolution, and pro-socialist than the previous generation. (Reference: http://www.pewforum.org/2010/02/17/religion-among-the-millennials/).

So of course, there will be masses of homeschooling millennials who will take on these ideologies, and abandon any semblance of agreement with the Christian faith. My tiny radio broadcast is only meant to salvage a few Christians left in the Western world who have ears to hear and won’t move with the masses.

Every religion (worldview) has its sins and the liberal (apostate) Western mind maintains its own list. Christians define sin by the law of God (1 John 3:4).  Liberals define their sins by Kathryn Joyce and her popular zeitgeist.

    Blah, blah, anyone who agrees with me is special, persecuted, and the only one saved, and anyone who disagrees is headed for hell. Bonus points for using “liberal” in the same manner as “poopiehead”.

    Thank you for my Xmas present: I’m officially an apostate. It’s just what I’ve always wanted.

    By classic Christian belief, greed is a sin. How does that fit with the jab at “socialism” by which most of these folks mean any governmental (and thus consistant and not subject to their “judgement”) aid? Vanity is a sin. How does that jibe with his “look at how holy me and my little splinter-culture are” attitude? Lying is a sin. How does that work with the deceptions Ken Ham and his minions create, trying to deny basic facts about biology, geology and astronomy?

    By my lights, this fellow is pretty sinful.

  • I thought the whole point why Quiverful parents home school is “so my children will be faithful.” Now he say ” of course, there will be masses of homeschooling millennials who will take on these ideologies, and abandon any semblance of agreement with the Christian faith”.

    Do I understand right that IF QF parents home school for the reason I think they do, they have no reason to do it left if they believe him?

  • Trollface McGee

    Hmm… If the majority of Christians reject the idea that children and women are property and their only role in life is to submit, and if they want their kids to grow up to be more than talking-point spouting advertisements for their parents’ beliefs but want them to have a happy future… then maybe it is YOU who are the apostate and don’t understand the Bible…
    Nah… persecution, apostasy….liberal-Marxist-Communist-Muslim-Nazi-Hindu-vegan evil people out to make your kids learn facts and eat broccoli.

  • Joyce

    Trollface – You forgot “tree-hugging,” “environmentalist,” and of course, “lesbian feminist.”

  • tulips

    Good point on that bit of backpeddling. If I were a QF parent, I’d want my money back.

    This Kevin guys sounds an awful lot like the Pharisees.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    I have a name for Kevin too. It’s not fit for polite company

  • persephone

    Then come by my house sometime.

  • Lauren Borrero

    I have to agree. I think that keeping people ignorant, brain washing them and what not are too.

    I’m going to steal from Alice Roosevelt Longworth, “If you can’t say something good about someone, sit right here by me. “
