Quoting Quiverfull: Subtle Fat-Shaming and Guilt?

Quoting Quiverfull: Subtle Fat-Shaming and Guilt? July 2, 2017

Lori Alexanders Brainby Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Their God is Their Belly

Editor’s note: Classy, subtle fat-shaming and shaming and blaming of all sorts of things Alexander personally thinks are sins. Aunt Lori has been busy.

We are told in Philippians 3:18 that “many walk…that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ.” What describes these enemies of Christ is a warning to all of us who claim the name of Christ. Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things (Philippians 3:19).

We all know many that live like this. They celebrate everything evil and hate those who oppose evil. They are given awards for being evil and interviews that are shown all over the world. They call good evil and evil good. The world praises them and falsely believes they are marvelous for being “true to themselves” when in actuality they are walking in the flesh which is the pathway to hell.

Please, let all of these things not be said of you, dear sisters in Christ. We are not to love this world nor the things in this world which refers to the lust of the flesh and eyes and the boastful pride of life. Stop indulging your flesh and become pleasers of the Lord in everything, instead. Dwell on the good and the lovely in the land and refuse to have any part of those who are enemies of the cross, “for our conversation is in heaven” and we are called to “stand fast in the Lord, rejoice in the Lord always, let your moderation be know unto all men, be careful for nothing, dwell on the true, the honest, the just, the pure, and the lovely” (Philippians 4).

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.

    Will I be required to have my measurements taken before I can get into Heaven? If so, I’m in trouble. I’ve been trying to do the whole faith and good works thing, but I guess I need to get on the God Diet too.

  • Emersonian

    Wait, what exactly is she talking about here? Awards for doing evil? That sounds less like fat shaming and more like Broadway show shaming….

  • Jo

    I don’t think you are allowed to enjoy what you eat as that would be considered a lover of food

    With some people you can’t win for losing. John the Baptist performed feats of asceticism and got a reputation for being possessed by a devil on that account, and Jesus performed no feats of asceticism (after his first stint in the desert) and got a reputation for being a glutton and a wine-bibber and the friend of publicans and sinners. Lori, as I’ve said before, would not have been a fan of either one of them had she been living in their time. Jesus’s statement that the Sabbath is made for man and not man for the Sabbath would have sent her into fits, and she’d have palavered on and on about his lack of respect (for God, for her, for the tender ears of impressionable youngsters, and so forth).

    Lori Anderson does not love God. She’s fixated on perfection, and that’s an entirely different thing.

  • We all know many that live like this. They celebrate everything evil and hate those who oppose evil. … They call good evil and evil good.

    Projecting, much, Lori?

    Maybe, instead of St. Peter at the gate, Lori’s heaven has something like those airport devices where you put your carry-on bag to make sure it will fit under your seat. If you don’t fit, you just don’t get in. /sarc

    She’s starting to sound like a Jack Chick pamphlet!

    Was she actually trying to make a point? The above statements by Mrs. Alexander comprise the most incomprehensible word salad that I have ever tried to ingest.
