Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – You Are Going Against God?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – You Are Going Against God? August 14, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander from Always Learning – Selfishly Focused Upon Themselves

Editor’s note: I think after the second part of this publishes tomorrow morning that we’re not going to be quoting Lori for awhile. She goes into ‘True Christian’ martyrbating mode when we do. I have no wish to inflate her ego/increase her self-martyrdom. Here she’s speaking about a few couples that are not going to be doing family the way she personally approves. Tone deaf ridiculousness over someone planning to be a physician, like it’s a selfish thing when really it’s one of the most unselfish pursuits you can engage in, helping others. The doctors I’ve know are mostly selfless individuals consumed with helping others. Snipped some extraneous babbling about her children recently having babies out of this bit for lengths sake.

I am grateful that my doctor (female) took the expense and sacrifice to be a doctor instead of listened to advice like this. Can someone please explain to me how a doctor who takes your calls at 10 pm on a Sunday night and calls medicine in for a mrsa infection is not helping out society at large as much as a stay at home having many babies momma is?

If you’re ready for a laugh after this take a look at her post justifying why she drives a Mercedes while preaching thrift – “Am I A Hypocrite?”

I saw an interview recently and the husband made this comment, “We don’t want children so we can just focus upon ourselves.” I hope you understand how selfish this mindset is if you are a believer in Jesus Christ. The Lord’s will for younger women is to marry, bear children, and guide the home so they do not give Satan occasion to speak evil about believers and His Word (1 Timothy 5:14). Yes, bearing and raising children is one of the hardest things a couple can do but it reaps so many blessings. Nothing worth having is easy. The joy all of them experienced the moment they held their newborn baby in their arms can’t be matched to anything else. They can’t wait to be the ones to raise their children.
Compare this to something that happened to me recently. I went to a baby shower for a lovely Christian young woman and then I went to an engagement party for a very excited Christian engaged couple. There was much reason to rejoice at these two events. However, at the end of the day, I was rather depressed. Both women weren’t going to be home with their children and some of them were so involved with their careers of becoming a doctor or some other highly educated career that they probably will never be home with their children if they are blessed with them. Either they have invested so much time in having their career or they have accumulated too much debt.
