Over the years, SuzyKnew! has commented on the Duggar family and whether their behavior and beliefs against contraception are in line with God’s teachings. The Duggars follow the principles of a conservative Christian group called “Quiverfuls.” Followers of this movement aim to have a “quiverful” of children, by avoiding contraception believing God will not provide more children than a couple can handle.
Apparently, the Duggars also believe that not all God’s children are precious in His eyes, as they tolerated their eldest son Josh Duggar molesting their daughters – as well as 5 other under-aged girls in 2002 and 2003. The media blew up last week with news about Josh Duggar’s child molestation, and the news continues to reverberate.
Turning a blind eye to their son’s molestation of their daughters is one more example of the Duggar’s anti-woman and anti-girl beliefs which are out of line with the Bible and what God wants for women. While the Duggars see women as only vessels for children and worthy of sexual abuse if it’s their son doing the molestation we should remember that this is not what God wants for us ladies. God wants us to be valued and loved as daughters, sisters, wives and mothers. This is not what the Duggars teach or follow, and we should not let their ungodly words or lifestyle lead us astray.
Proverbs 11:16 A gracious woman gets honor
Proverbs 31:10 An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels
Proverbs 14:1 The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down.
