I didn't see this anywhere else, but feel free to merge if I missed it. Radio Free Europe has an article about a German family with 10 kids (the father quotes the quiverfull verse) who moved to Siberia to get away from the "sexually permissive" West. They identify as Baptists and are homeschooling their kids (which is legal in Russia) in their 4-room, traditional Russian log house. Russian Baptists are not the same thing as American Baptists--there are differences in part due to the persecution experienced during Soviet times and the influence of Russian culture (and thus Russian Orthodoxy), and in part due to the fact that they trace their history not through English Separatism, but to German Mennonites and Lutherans from the Baltic coast. It's not clear which tradition they follow. http://www.rferl.org/a/german-family-moves-siberia-sexually-permissive-west/28259526.html
DomWackTroll posted a topic in Baptists/Evangelicals“Duffey said the termination came after Noble ‘had made unfortunate choices and decisions that have caused much concern’ among board members, who had confronted Noble more than once in recent months about his alcohol use and his ‘posture toward marriage.’” Noble says—in a statement read/approved by NewSpring—that there was no infidelity, so I’m guessing he was taking baby steps towards supporting gay marriage? Noble is the mentor of Davey Blackburn, whose wife Amanda was murdered in a home invasion in Indianapolis. http://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/news/2016/07/10/perry-noble-announcement/86915826/
JaChelle Sugar posted a topic in Baptists/EvangelicalsSurfing the web for articles on how fucked up Calvinism is, I landed on John Piper's site (I believe he is a Calvinist) and read this article. desiringgod.org/blog/posts/letter-to-an-incomplete-insecure-teenager His constant talk of 'holy frogs' cracked me up! \ Not that the article didn't have a few good idea's in there but really--FROGS? Was that necesary?
