Quoting Quiverfull: Miscarriage is Caused by ‘Emotions’? December 18, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Andrew Wommack at Raw Story – TV Faith Healer: Women Have Miscarriages Because They Don’t Obey God’s Law About Being Too Emotional

Editor’s note: With this piece I think I’ve seen every imaginable blame assigned to women by Christian Patriarchs now. This is vile and extremely hurtful to the many women who have suffered the pain of miscarriage, particularly those who’ve lost babies they wanted with all their hearts. Miscarriages happen for all sorts of reasons, sometimes no one knows the why, but emotions don’t cause them. What he says at the beginning in the clip on Raw Story about depression and mental illness is even worse.

“They are dealing with things from only a physical, natural, humanistic standpoint,” he explained. “This is one of the reasons that people’s emotions are so messed up today is because instead of approaching it from God’s standpoint, where it says control your emotions, don’t let your heart be troubled, rejoice in the Lord always.”

According to Wommack, emotions were like a horse because “once you ever let a horse just go and get a full head of steam, the best thing for you to do is jump off.”

“Most people will get down and wallow in the unbelief and in the fear and all of this and they let things be conceived on the inside of them that they never intend to act out.”

The faith healer added: “Well, you’re either going to have to have a miscarriage or an abortion along the way. And neither one of those things are desirable. This is not the way God wants us to live.”
