Gabriel Pearl is second child of Michael and Debi Pearl and it looks like he and his wife (Lori) separated, that is, have been separated for couple of years now. If you go on "No Greater Joy" site and clik the link "Meet the Pearls" at the bottom of the main page, you'll see that, while all of his siblings are introduced along with their spouses and children, there are just few words about Gabriel mentioning nobody but him alone. (Just go on their regular page.) It was not the case couple of years ago and the old "Meet the Pearls" link still exists and there, Gabriel is introduced along with his wife Lori and children. (Just google "Lori Pearl" and clik on the link bellow the first picture that pops up of her and Gabriel.) Further more, the remaining text is identical to the one before, apart from couple of lines about Lori, that have been cut out. Also, on his facebook page he has a post that (part of it) says: "It took a lot of prayer and an awful amount of support from my loving family to get my kids home after 2 1/2 years." (It's not private profile.) It is not a certain thing, but more of an implied situation as Pearl's choose to keep it quiet. If it is true, lets just hold this not only as an example of Gabriel's personal faliure, but as well as that of Michael and Debi Pearl, that is faliure of their ideology and their teachings. There is a certain objectivity regarding this matter - simple fact that Michael Pearl with his faith and knowledge of Bible, failed to produce a man who was able to chose his wife wisely and maintain a healthy marriage, which makes his advice about marriage and raising children, a questionable advice. I know that they are good people. At least they strive to be. I can value some of their advice, but the self-righteousness in their aproach to other people, both us, unbelivers "who live in the darkness" and fellow belivers, is unjustified. I would like to hear about your opinions and informations regarding this matter, aswell.
not sure if we talked about this ahole or not. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2016/05/18/this-christian-is-selling-child-beating-sticks-but-he-doesnt-want-the-internet-to-find-out/?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=website&utm_content=link
Hi all, I'm new here. I've been lurking forever, never really intended to join, but here I am. Mostly because I'm aghast at the amount of Duggar love on Birth Without Fear's FB page and because Mrs. BWF is demanding links to prove that the Duggars use such child training methods as blanket training and TTUAC, saying that people are just haters and making things up. I am not internet savvy enough to find their old website where, IIRC, they linked to NGJ or recommended TTUAC, but I know there are smart people here. Help? Pretty please with a cherry on top?
