Quoting Quiverfull: Be Quiverfull to Spread God’s Image?

Quoting Quiverfull: Be Quiverfull to Spread God’s Image? December 27, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Colin Campbell from Meat For Men – Wouldn’t This Make a Difference To This World?

Editor’s note: Have to say this is one of the strangest reasonings I’ve seen to justify militant fecundity. If all people bear the image of God then how is Christians rampantly breeding thinking they are the only ones spreading God’s image? Playing a game of theology twister are we Colin?

Many Christians who say they believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God fail to realize that God’s first mandate for all husbands and wives to be fruitful and multiply. It is just as important today as it was to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

“Why is it important?” you ask. It’s all about the image and likeness of God. How amazing that God should entrust to frail human beings the propagation of His glorious likeness and image.

Are we a clear revelation to this needy world of how God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit looks and acts like? Wouldn’t this world be a better place to live in if the image and likeness of God was multiplied and manifested everywhere—in all its glory and clarity? A thousand times, yes.

Is it possible that every child born to a Christian couple and raised in the ways of God, born again, and filled with the Holy Spirit could be like a great neon sign, showing to the world the image of God? Absolutely, yes. Your street, your family, your city, your country, and your world would be far better off with the multiplication of God’s image and likeness. God’s love, His truth, mercy, holiness, faithfulness, gentleness, kindness, and all His virtues are what it is all about.

What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment
  • Saraquill

    With billions of people in the world, I don’t think we have to worry about a lack of image.

  • TLC

    How ironic, then, that when God sent His son to earth, said son was unmarried and childless. Didn’t even want to re-create His own image.

  • bekabot

    Out of the horse’s mouth: “It’s all about image.”

  • Astrin Ymris

    I think Colin only considers CPM True Christians™ to be “in the image of God”.

    It’s striking that this particular “image of God” is turning Americans away from Christianity at a record rate.

  • persephone

    The white Christian image of God. Only that one. QF is extremely racist.

    Fill the world with people that look like the Campbells? That’s some nightmare fuel.

  • I wanted to look up the respective passage in English; I needed to open a new panel in my browser for that, which, with many other panels already open (I’m messy like that), I usually do by Google-searching for a relevant phrase from the page already open.
    I purposed to do this with the phrase “in the image of God” from your comment, and then stopped myself in my tracks because I thought of the kind of thing that would most likely conjure up.
    Eeeek.
