Not Quoting Quiverfull: Embracing Halloween?

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Embracing Halloween? October 30, 2015

Notquotingby David Mathis of John Piper’s Desiring God – Take Halloween Captive

Editor’s note: While there are some things in this article that aren’t great, it’s surprising in a good way when you see a ministry that usually promotes poisonous theology that spiritually abuses others to take a common sense stance that lines up closer with the words of Jesus than 99% of the other Evangelicals on this same subject. Thankfully he’s not saying to wrap those candy bars in tracts either..

Reach Out with Kindness

Because of the authority of Jesus, and his power within us — and remembering that Satan is our enemy, not our neighbors — we lean into Halloween, not away. We turn the porch lights on to chase away the darkness. We have the best candy on the street and give with generosity, not the cheapest fair with a miser’s hand.

We open the door wide and linger in conversation. We plan ahead about how to make the most of this unique opportunity, when a society of people who increasingly keep to themselves in the neighborhood turn on lights and knock on doors.

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
