Quoting Quiverfull: Satan Hates Quiverfull?

Quoting Quiverfull: Satan Hates Quiverfull? December 10, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – What Flags Are You Flying?

Editor’s note: Nancy goes right after everything that is against the Quiverfull mindset and declares it a lie of Satan. Lie of Satan. That’s pretty strong considering all of the things on this list are those of personal preference more than hard rules in the Bible.

Can you believe it? The enemy had come into the heart of God’s sanctuary and established their banners! And yet we see the same thing happening today. Right under the nose of God’s people, the enemy has entered into the heart of the church and set up his banners.

In most of Christendom today, the banners are flying high . . .

“Wait a few years until you are established before you start a family.”

“Make sure you use birth control.”

“Don’t have too many children.”

“Put your children in daycare so you can enjoy your career.”

“It’s my body, it’s my life, and I don’t need anyone (even my husband) telling me what to do.”

These ideologies are now entrenched in the church. They are not God’s signs. They are not taken from the Bible. In fact, they are opposite. They are opposite to God’s nature and His original plan for mankind. They are humanistic ideologies, taken from the very source of Satan himself.

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.

    Testing, testing,,,,,

  • The jury’s out on most of it, but I’m failing to see how “Wait a few years until you are established before you start a family” in particular actually opposes the Bible.
    Not that it says anything in particular on that subject as far as I know, but as far as I know, whenever someone in the Bible marries, they usually are “established”, i.e. they usually do have means of providing for their new family.

    So that one in particular is just practical wisdom that even people in biblical times followed.

    It’s funny. I’m playing catch-up with old posts and just got to this one. A good friend and I have been talking about having kids the past few days. I have always wanted one of my own making and to foster/adopt anything beyond that. He is on the fence about whether he wants any at all. But we both agree that at 26 and 25, respectively, he and I are not in a place in our lives where having a kid would be good for either of us or our potential kids. Additionally, we both have our concerns about bringing kids into a world in which neither of us has much faith. Having a dozen kids just because you believe you’ll go to hell if you use birth control is selfish beyond belief, especially if you don’t have the means to provide for that many kids. Kids are expensive. Two of the most conservative Christian couples I know, parents of school friends, have expressed desire for their married adult children to wait longer to have kids than they did/are trying to because of money and concerns about having kids before establishing themselves or working out marital issues. Kids are not a band-aid that will magically resolve your financial and marital issues, and I don’t see the Bible attempting to refute that either.
