Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Questioning the Pearls

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Questioning the Pearls July 2, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine – But I Wanted to Ask Mr. Pearl

Editor’s note: While the question may or may not be real the real shocker here is that Mr. Pearl has decent advice for a change. I guess even a stopped clock is right twice a day and that even he sometimes gets it right. Go figure. At least it doesn’t involve Chick Tracts left in random places.

You are living a life of self-interest—not necessarily the same thing as selfish. We, too, moved into the deep country, away from a ministry, when our oldest child was 13 years old. We did so mainly for the sake of the children. We bought 100 acres in the least populated county in Tennessee, and the poorest. Though we were isolated, one day two men found their way down our quarter-mile-long driveway. I spoke of Christ and they wanted to hear more, so I traveled to their home to teach a Bible study. In time others joined in and we had a church, and then a mission outreach, etc.

If you share Christ with every single person you meet, you will have a ministry. You could also drive in once a week to nursing homes, jails, homeless shelters, or just go door to door visiting people and telling them about Christ. When people find out you have the love of God and a message of hope, they will come to you.

Part 1

Question number two will be posted on Sunday morning.

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.
