Quoting Quiverfull: God Orders You to be a Wife and Mother?

Quoting Quiverfull: God Orders You to be a Wife and Mother? October 7, 2017

Lori Alexanders Brainby Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – God’s Calling For Women

Editor’s note: Skipping the part where Lori humble brags about the hit numbers on her photos of that tablet she writes in. All the while she’s in pearl clutching mode that women would dare to think they might hear from God and have ambitions beyond the kitchen and house. Notice that at the end of this she claims the only women who can teach others are like her. Lori’s advice is always the same – you cannot hear from God you selfish women, but I can and I am Godly to teach you about him. She does not have an ounce of self-awareness about how nonsensical her ideas are. Classic do as I say, not as I do.

I don’t know where this new movement came from that decided that women can “hear” from God and find out their calling. It’s not that difficult to find out what God calls us to do! Concerning a husband, God “calls” us to marry a believer. That’s it! Beyond that, He’s given us free will to marry a man who is a believer.

Concerning what kind of a wife He has called us to be, He has made this very clear in His Word: submissive to our own husbands and having meek and quiet spirits. Concerning children, He wants us to be fruitful and multiply since children are a blessing from Him. Concerning finances, He doesn’t want us to go into debt, He wants us to be generous and to work hard. Concerning raising our children, He wants us to raise them in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord.

f you’re going to listen to women teachers, listen to those who teach what God has instructed them to teach. He’s clear in His Word about this, too. If they never mention loving and obeying your husband, being discreet, chaste, sober, good, and keepers at home, find other women teachers who do teach what God has “called” them to teach. Learn the doctrines of the faith from godly men preachers/teachers of the Word. God has “called” men to preach/teach the Word of God and it’s all very, very good.

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.
