Today's thoughts to chew on

I read a lot of blogs by women who have either left their faith completely, or changed their faith journey to a different direction, because of spiritual abuse. Most of them are leaving the Quiverfull movement. Some are different types of spiritual abuse. Very interesting reading, which can spark some heated conversations. Anyway, here is a link to a blog entry today by one of my favorite blogs to read. This entry has so much in it I want to comment on, so much I agree with, and so much I just want to sit and think about. Before I share any of my thoughts, though, I wanted to share it with y'all and see what thoughts are swirling in your mind?

Oh, and an update on Madeleine will be coming soon. She's fine. The update is being combined with some info to share on Soph and Ben, and it all kind of relates. So I thought I'd do it all in one entry!

What did you end up thinking about this?

I know that she says this- God loves us, we blew it, Jesus lived, died, and lives again to redeem us, and the Christian life is all about loving God and loving people.- is the only thing the Bible clearly says, and I wonder if that isn't a cop out for not standing up for stuff. I haven't read any of the rest of her blog, but I feel like the Bible is pretty clear on a few big time issues other then that, like abortion, the gay lifestyle being a sin, supporting Israel, euthenasia and things like taking care of orphans and widows. I guess that might fall under loving one another (that last part). I don't know, I just feel like Christian's today are so wishy washy and this sounds like another way to sit on the middle of the fence.

You can tell me if you think I am way off base, I don't mind LOL, and since you have been reading this blog, you might know things about this person that I don't , so I could be way off track.
