Quoting Quiverfull: Suffering Women Who Teach Are Deceived?

Quoting Quiverfull: Suffering Women Who Teach Are Deceived? October 9, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Michelle Lesley from Give Me Church Ladies, Or I Die – Band-Aids vs. Chemotherapy: Why Suffering Women are Drawn to False Doctrine and 7 Things We Can do to Help

Editor’s note: This blogger is a new one for us, but she follows some rather toxic and insane teachers like Tim Chailles and Todd Friel. Pretty outrageous, even for a blogging female cultural enforcer. First call most other female cultural enforcers ‘false teachers’, then make claims about things that happened to them, throw in some personal observations that are unsupported by any empirical evidence or surveys, then jump straight to a ridiculous conclusions about how we’re supposed to suffer for the good of our souls.

I’ve used band-aids and I’ve had chemo more than once and there is a vast difference between those two states. In no way is someone feeling comforted by scripture during a rough time using a band-aid on a cancer! Many of those things she’s listing as ‘lies’ from Satan are in the Bible. Seems like it’s a lie from Satan only when someone else saying it has a bigger influence and popularity than you. Why all the extremes? The either/or states?

Joyce Meyer. Beth Moore. Paula White. Lysa TerKeurst. Christine Caine. What do all of these women have in common?

Yes, they’re all false teachers, but they’re also all victims of sexual abuse.

I haven’t conducted a scientific poll, survey, or longitudinal study, so my observations could be way off base, but I’ve been noticing lately – from hearing these women’s testimonies, reading comments on their blog articles, and talking to women who follow them – that women who have been sexually abused seem to be particularly vulnerable to “feel good” false doctrine.

And it’s not just victims of sexual abuse. It’s women who are suffering from the death of a child or spouse, divorce, infertility, illness, spousal abuse- all of those agonies that strike right at the core of women’s hearts. You’ll find them in droves at the conferences, book signings, and blogs of false teachers.

And Satan, that evil beast, is right there to exploit their pain and make things worse by molesting them spiritually. He sends false teachers to whisper sweetly in their ears, “It hurts, doesn’t it? But I can make all that pain go away, now.

“You’re God’s masterpiece- His princess!”

“Just declare the things that are not as though they are!”

“God will give you back what you lost a hundredfold.”

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper!”

“God wants to do the impossible in your life, so dream big dreams!”
