NLQ Question of the Week – Why Do QF Christians Think They Have The Right To Tell Others How To Live?

NLQ Question of the Week – Why Do QF Christians Think They Have The Right To Tell Others How To Live? July 30, 2015

QuestionoftheweekThis is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.

Several of the posts this week, like those involving Biblical Gender Roles, Reagan Ramm, Lisa Ramos and Nancy Campbell, have a similar theme running through them, that Quiverfull fundamentalist or evangelical Christians believe that they have the right to tell others what to do, from simply telling women to cover up, through dictating emotions and attitudes or what your family size should be.

The question this raises in my mind is why do they think they have the right to dictate to anyone else how to behave or live? What is the root of this supreme arrogance of thinking you know better than anyone else what someone else needs?

We’ve seen them  not agree on many things, while insisting their own way was right. And we’ve seen how badly that works out many times. Sound off in the comments below.
