Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Perverted Porno Freaks Don’t Need Prayer?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Perverted Porno Freaks Don’t Need Prayer? June 3, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – More of Sodom

Editor’s note: When we left Michael he was detailing why confession and therapy does not work for addictions according to him. We continue on. Comparing someone struggling with addictions to a baboon cannot be healthy. If only it was as simple as he thinks it is.

I said you don’t need help because no one can help you decide what you value. If you love the flesh and do not fear God, if you are not afraid of hell, if you do not value your marriage and your self-respect, if you choose to have the worldview of a baboon—to eat, sleep, and play with yourself—no one can help you except to assure you of the misery you will experience in this life and of damnation in the next.

I said you don’t need prayer, because God does not help sinners quit their sin. God commands the sinner to repent, and then God places his Spirit inside of believers, and by that Spirit the children of God are all overcomers. Those who are not overcomers are overcome of sin and will continue to be enslaved unless they become truly born again.

When you fear God and hell, you will lose your appetite for everything but forgiveness and restitution. You will stay on your knees, fasting, until you touch God and receive the new birth. When you repent to God, you will hate sin so thoroughly that the very thought of a porno image will make you sick to your stomach.

    “Fear,” says the man who loves to cause pain. “Fear fixes everything,” says the man who advises to put a literal weapon in every room of the house and to wear one to cause maximum terror. “Fear, repent” advises the man who shattered his own children to the point that they cannot cope with simple basic questions, simple basic life skills. “True fear will MAKE you change” says the man on whose advice to “break the spirit” and “never back down” three child murders were committed.

    We knew there was no love or leeway in his life or in his religion; rather refreshing for him to bring bile, insult, physical deprivation and fear straight to the front and highlight them as the most important, transformative beliefs he has.

    We knew he was hateful, but the specific mention of fasting interests me. I suppose because he can’t physically abuse adult strangers, he’ll settle for trying to convince them to abuse themselves.

    Fear has always been in the background of the Christian message, but some people at some times have just left it in the background, and preferred to focus on positive qualities like love, grace, and mercy.

    Now’s a time that many Christian leaders are giving up on the positive message. They’re angry and frustrated … so fear is back to the forefront. It’s the unwavering obligation to accept Christianity, no matter what reservations you have.

    Let’s kick people when they’re down already! Such fun, isn’t it?

    Shorter Michael Pearl, Part Deux: But wait, there IS hope for you, if, that is, you’re willing to live in constant fear of displeasing God. Nothing drastic, just spend lots of time mortifying yourself, mind and body.

    Or live like an animal and gratify yourself. I don’t care. But you’ll fry in hell, in eternal torment, if you go that route.

    It seems Pearl’s Bible is missing Hebrews as well:
    For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was IN ALL points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help time of need.

    Michael Pearl is a liar and does not teach the true Word of God.

  • Astrin Ymris

    Like always, Michael’s advice is so structured that if it fails to have the desired result, it’s the victim’s fault for not following in correctly. Michael is never responsible for any bad outcomes– ever.

    Every time I see Michael Pearl on here, my hand itches for a buggy whip.

    God can’t help you…

    My, that’s inspiring!

    God is too busy viewing torture porn: Earth.

  • Nea

    Mikey’s God is surprisingly weak and vicious. Truly a divinity made in Mikey’s own image.

  • AuntKaylea

    So – it seems to me that here he is admitting that the power in his gospel is not faith, hope, and love, but rather the power of fear.
