The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (Volume 2)

The Good

This. An extremely compelling piece that needs no description.

The Bad

This. One of the most disturbing pages I've ever visited. I left a couple of comments there about a year ago, which, naturally, weren't published because dear old dad said so. This poor girl doesn't have a chance. Her mind has been blasted with this poisonous indoctrination. This comment from the father in the most recent post is mind-boggling...

"You are making your statement based on your assumptions. God’s Word never calls women to leave the home. What you are saying is that God’s calling can contradict God’s Word. Here is a good truth. The Spirit of God will never lead where the Word of God forbids."

He chastises the reader for making assumptions, then goes on to make assumptions about what God's word forbids. It's evil stuff, people. Apostate. The straight and narrow-minded way. Dig around there a little bit and dare to tell me I've taken the Antebellum/Victorian fantasy stuff too far.

What they practice resembles radical Islam far more than anything Christian. They're worshipping, whole-heartedly, a way of life. It's god to them.

And, Kelly's back at the apostasy. The womb is part of the gospel picture? Really? Not only does she misrepresent the origins of marriage, but her entire focus in this piece brings to mind this scripture from Colossians...

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!

Whole-hearted idolatry and worship of a lifestyle. It's as if she's continually trying to talk not just her readers, but herself, into the "right-ness" of her life.

Dangerous stuff. In the case of both of these articles...When you allow someone else to speak for you, you put yourself at risk. When you allow someone else to think for you, it's over. You're toast. Reminds me very much of Jonestown.


The Ugly

I have no words.


  1. Did you skip over from the girl's blog ("Bad") to her dad's blog? Scary stuff.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Love the "Reverb" blog!

  2. The post titled "Religion" was absolutely wonderful.

    I'm not sure what to make of the guy on the video. I only made it through 3 minutes.

  3. Hey Lewis! How on earth do you find these people? Have you thought about doing your own documentary?

    Dude in the video looks "regular"...until he opens his mouth. Like Terry, I only made it through a few minutes.

  4. Angie...I originally saw a clip of him advertising some kind of meeting he was holding over at Christian Nightmares.

    He's a bit, umm, robust in his delivery, isn't he?

    Whoooaaa! And the winner is...! Hello wall!

  5. where do you find these uglies?

  6. Ugh. That clip! The sarcasm! "9 out of 10 Christians are too stupid to know what happened." EEeeyah! Bdrrrrrrd. Heh heh heh.

  7. I hope you make GBU a regular feature.

    I haven't read through all the links yet but this jumped out at me from the cedar blog:

    How can we expect the Lord to bless our efforts there if we refuse to allow Him to grow the family as He sees fit, in order to demonstrate this parallel in a physical sense?
    Are we suddenly stronger than God?

    If we don’t allow the evidence of consummation in our marriages, I agree that children are a little more acceptable in polite society than teeshirts printed with: WE ARE MARRIED AND WE HAVE SEX printed across the front.

  8. I'm all for the documentary. :D

  9. Barry...It's some crazy stuff, isn't it?

    "How can we expect the Lord to bless our efforts there if we refuse to allow Him to grow the family as He sees fit, in order to demonstrate this parallel in a physical sense?"

    She's making a connection that the Lord absolutely doesn't.

    It leaves little doubt what exactly she worships - a lifestyle which idolizes the family unit and breeding.

  10. lol@Jenny...I'm afraid you might have to wait a while for that;)

  11. Wow.....I wish HE were unspeakable. Too much yakking for him!

    Me thinks he's been spending too much time at the bottom of the Wine Barrel. I'm wondering if he has turrets.

    Right at 7:01, he acts as if he's peeing his pants or something.

    I made it through the whole video. Do I get a prize?

  12. Oh my goodness, I just looked at the girl's blog. Her father is the pot calling the kettle black when it comes to calling people out on making assumptions.

    I would MUCH rather watch 10 min. of the video link you posted than to spend 10 min. reading her blog. It made my heart break for all of the people getting caught up in those lies. I'm not surprised that Daddy moderates her blog. And seriously, does a blog really need a moderator? *sigh*

  13. Lewis I love this idea of The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, it works well.

    The tyrant father who is "moderating" his daughter's blog is a perfect example of what these parents (because it is both of them in most cases) of patriarchy are really like. They are control freaks and what they do to their children is abuse and that poor young woman is brain washed into thinking it is love.

    My fifteen year old has a blog and neither my husband or I feel the need to censor what she writes. As a Christian the Holy Spirit convicts her and watches over her. As she gets older it is the duty of my husband and I to slowly step back and step away as she learns to walk by faith. How sad that this young woman is not free to be led by the Lord, as her father is seeking to be her god.

  14. I guess the worst part of it to me, Taunya, is that he's specifically and purposefully raised her to be naive, co-dependent, and incapable - so that she'll need him to be her god. Creating a demand, then demanding to meet it. It may be many things, but Christianity it ain't.

  15. Making assumptions? Interesting. So, when Naomi's husband died and then her sons died, that left Ruth with no husband or father-in-law. Orpah went back home but Ruth chose to stay with Naomi. So, according to "their rules", should Ruth have gone back home to daddy??? Hmm. So, if Ruth had gone back home to daddy, then she wouldn't have met Boaz and gotten married and well, wouldn't that have messed up the lineage of Jesus? Or am I making an assumption here? Just

    The guy in the video is making fun of the charismatic movements. I didn't make it through the end either. I think prizes are in order to Erika! Umm, maybe Lewis can award you a free 1 year subscription to his blog as your reward?? lol.

    Thanks for posting Lewis. Good blog as always!

  16. I thought it was funny that Kelly's post originally had the word "womb" in the title and by the time I got there she had changed it to "babies." The word "womb" still comes up in the original link though so obviously that's what she started with. :P
