This should be the last part of the Quiverfull series, unless I do a conclusion. The reasons in this part deal with the suffering of the women and children, the potential for corrupting the truth of the Gospel, and the racist leanings that surround the belief system.
7. Quiverfull can cause suffering of the women and children.
We have already covered quite a bit on the subject of the suffering of the women and children in Quiverfull (see Part 4, especially), but due to seriousness of this issue, I wanted to mention it as a separate point.
Ever since the fall of man in the garden of Eden Satan has targeted women and children for some reason. My theory is that it is because God told him that the seed of the woman would crush his head.
Genesis 3:14-15 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
It also could be in part because women and children are physically weaker than men in general and the devil tends to attack the weaker. It also may be partly because the men should be the defenders and helpers of the weaker ones and so inspiring them to hurt instead makes a mockery of their manliness and in some way perhaps Satan uses it to accuse men before God. We know that he is the accuser of men from Job 1:6-12 and Revelation 12:10. What better way to bring accusation against them than to inspire Christian men to abuse their strength by abusing those they should be protecting or supporting?
