Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Selfish Momma Dooms Children?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Selfish Momma Dooms Children? December 13, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Broken Circles

Editor’s note: Finally Michael goes on to blame men too, but only one short bit calling them ‘sissies’. He is also claiming that women that do not toe his theological stay in a bad marriage or else line are depressed and angry. That might be, but staying in a bad situation is way more likely to make you depressed or angry.

A great majority of women are depressed, discouraged, angry, and totally out of control in their flesh. They live in some kind of a silly fantasyland. To make matters worse, their husbands are selfish, defeated sissies. Soul sickness is at epidemic proportions. Divorce is a terrible crime against all. And not only divorce, but also the spirit of defiance, of “getting my rights,” is quickly destroying any hope of happiness.
Many women will read this and say, “I knew I was doomed from the start, so why try, it is my parents’ fault.” It is true your parents did fail you, but now you stand before God to give an answer for your own sin. It’s no good crying over spilled milk. It’s time to get a cloth and clean up the mess, being careful not to create any more spills. Are you content to continue passing this burden down to your children? Each person stands before God either to obey or to dishonor. Because of your up-bringing you might have a propensity to be selfish, get angry, or to manipulate your surroundings, but it is ultimately your choice to obey God or not. As you seek God and seek to obey his Word you will begin to mature in the way God meant for you to mature while you were growing up. When God says in his Word for the woman to reverence her husband it will not seem like an archaic translation. When the Scripture says, Sara called her husband lord, it will not appear sacrilegious.
