Quoting Quiverfull: Sacrifice Yourself For Your Children?

Quoting Quiverfull: Sacrifice Yourself For Your Children? November 2, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Rebekah Pearl Anast from No Greater Joy – Calling All Teenagers

Editor’s note: This is from a very lengthy article about how parents must ‘train up’ their children and by the time they reach adolescence it’s way too late. While I agree with her points of talking to your children about what’s happening with their bodies and hormones and in general in their lives there’s not much else there of any value. But this is the most poisonous parts. Raising your children is not the same as immolating oneself.

Your kids are your mission field. Hear the call to lay down your life for them. Get on that altar, take a deep breath, light that match and toss it in the tinder. Be vulnerable regardless of how critical they may be . . . and give your life for your teenager.

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.
