This is a new series about the reasons that we are not part of the "Quiverfull" movement. Today we are discussing how the ideology denies the free will and common sense.
Why We Are not Quiverfull PART 2 - It denies the free will and common sense.
Proverbs 4:26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
Men are expected to make wise choices in many areas of life, but not the size of their family. They are to choose their employment, their location, with whom they fellowship, goals, and objectives. They are told to determine God's will for themselves and their families. They are encouraged by some to make 200 year plans for their family's future. They are supposed to tell their wives and daughters how to run the household, and in some cases even dictate all their use of time. They are, in practice, to choose their daughters' husbands for them. They are even supposed to figure out what work their sons are supposed to be doing, according to some. But, they are not allowed to choose when to stop having kids or how many to have according the the Quiverfull ideology. This makes no sense.
