Why We Are not Quivferull - PART 5 - Points 7-9 - Suffering, The Gospel, Racism




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.

Why We Are not Quiverfull - PART 5

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?

  1. Thanks for your thoughtful and well researched post, Mary. I particularly appreciated how you pointed out the the quiverfull movement is likely 'another gospel'. Anything that takes the place of Jesus or is elevated about Christ, is another gospel. Thanks for linking up with Grace and Truth again! I look forward to your next series.

    1. Thanks, Aimee. I am glad that you found it useful. This belief system may be thicker on the ground here in Texas than it is in other places, so perhaps we've run across it more than in some areas. I'm really not sure how much it is in various places. But, like a virus, milder strains seem to be more prevalent in a larger part of Christendom.

      How much do you hear about it Christians around you?
