Seriously, Steve?

Recommended Posts

Palimpsest

We've been neglecting Steve recently, and I thought it might be good to keep comments on his "seriously" posts together rather than scattered in other threads.  He's on about the Beast again. 

Quote

Yet, might we be like Solomon and have difficulty in seeing our own error? Will we heed the warning of Scripture? “Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing” (Deuteronomy 7:26).  Sadly, many Christian dads have brought what God would call an abomination into their homes.

Notice how these verses describe TV and most movies. “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren” (Proverbs 6:16-19).

All TV but just "most" movies?  I wonder what movies pass Steve's tests?  I'd be willing to bet that Life of Brian doesn't!  

And his follow-up to this one should be fun.  He's going to justify computer use as Godly (so long as you have an accountability partner, of course. )

And this one is fun from April 11:

Quote

 

SHORTCUT TO SADNESS

Spring is planting time, and soon farmers will be hard at it. Once the conditions are right. they focus on getting seed in the ground. Then, there will be fertilizing and cultivating to ensure a good harvest in the fall. Given normal weather, the quality of the harvest is generally dependent on the effort expended during the growing season.  There are efficiencies farmers learn, but basically its the same routine, year-after-year. 

 

But of course he is talking about the seed of his loins.  Basically the same routine, year-after-year, unless you have a vasectomy.  Which would be sinful.  But if you have a successful reversal you can dine out on it for ever and plant 5 more seeds.

Quote

Raising children is very similar. Careful attention and great investment is needed in training and discipling children. Instead of six months, the “disciple-growing season” is twenty years or so. Full-time commitment is required, there are no shortcuts. 

Or in the case of the adult daughters who are still living at home because you won't set them free, you can count on the growing season to be 35+ years.  Of control and computer monitoring.

Quote

I have yet to meet a farmer who wanted a poor harvest or a parent who wanted a child to love the world. Oh my Brothers, I beg you, be committed, invest yourselves in the children God has entrusted to your care and nurturing.

What is so wrong with loving the world?  God supposedly created it and put all those nice things in it to be enjoyed.  It is only in Steve's twisted universe that extreme sheltering and rejecting the world is so important.  

He'll quote I John 2: 15 back at me, I'm sure:  "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."

I would argue that the Maxwells love their expensive toys and luxury items like computers, phones, hiking poles, cameras, coffee-makers, Instant pots, and that damn meat smoker.  When did the Maxwells last eat any meat that wasn't smoked?

And they certainly lust after flesh - proof being all those babies.  Also Steve demonstrates pridefulness of his life choices with every word he writes.

You know the story of Martha and Mary? Steve is Martha. Rushing around and bothered with having things just so for Jesus, missing what's truly important.

Except Martha's rushing was useful. Preparing food, cleaning up, stuff that the others were all happy to accept but not to help with so she could listen too. Steve fusses over floating dust motes but fails to get on a ladder to dust the ceiling fan.

I think they warp John 17-16 to say "be in the world but not of it" I remember that being a popular saying among the Mormons I grew up around (though to Steve, that sect is probably S*tanic)

Yep. That is what I was taught in Fundy School.

Is it typical for him to sometimes write the Mom's Corners? TLDR of it is he is happy Teri has suffered her whole life to make "servants fit for the Master's use"

 

Steve, you are disgusting on so many levels.

Mom's corner.  Written by a mother for other mothers.  He won't even let Teri have that.  And you are also a servant you prideful putz.  Here is a thought:  In a somewhat functional church there is accountability for members and Steve would not do well in that environment where you serve and are served.  He has to be the master of his domain.  Fucker.

I never did the motherhood thing, but I'm sure it's fine if you have only a few kids, if your partner is a hands-on parent, and there's enough money coming in (either through you, your partner, or some combo) to afford at least a middle-class lifestyle. But birthing eleventy kids, homeschooling them, living hand-to-mouth, and having to live with a patriarchal religious fanatic douchebag of a husband is my idea of hell. It's no wonder the fundies have to "sell" the joys of motherhood even to members of their own flock.

Also I don't think Martha would emotionally abuse her spouse with depression and hold her adult children hostage after purposely stunting their autonomy their entire childhood.

Damn it Steve is teasing us (something I think he enjoys doing on a twisted level but isn'f trying to do here) about whatever incident happened with their internet searches. From the latest Dad's Corners: 

"Many dads haven’t realized the danger of the computer for himself or his children and discovered too late the damage done whether in addiction to empty games or to serious immorality.

Our family’s computers are not used for play or entertainment. "

 

I am dying to know. Was it something actually mundane like Jesse looking at a starlet's instagram or Anna playing word games? Or did Steve "accidentally" "stumble upon" something "dangerous"?

Stevehovah is a dick. I was looking up Dante’s Inferno, specifically to find out what the nine levels of Hell were, recently and sometimes I wonder where Stevehovah would go. Sadly there is no circle for Douchebaggery.

He'd fit well with the 4th circle of Greed and the 5th circle of Wrath, but also in the 8th circle of Fraud, maybe with the hypocrites or the falsifiers or sowers of discord. Not sure which he'd go best, but I suppose the worst punishment.

Kinda  sad that Terified needed Stevehovah to write her post this month, or however often she blesses her readers with Maxwell wisdom.  I suppose there are a few (very few!) crumbs of knowledge in her screeds.  I'm waiting, as my necklace of knowledge is short a few pearls.

Clarifying here--No Pearls, as in the "beat 'em with plumbing line," are eligible, Rodrigues notwithstanding.

Free Jinger ... 

When he browses here these days he dons a hazmat suit and has Teri stand by with a bucket of brain bleach.

And his computer bullshit was just another plug for Accountable2You.  The affiliate link that blesses the Titus2 ministry.

For those who were so shocked by the idea that Steve and Teri monitor computer use, here's Teri back in 2009:  http://articles.titus2.com/news-and-childrens-internet-usage-part-2/

We have high levels of Internet parental-control security on all of our computers. Steve and I choose to live with the parental controls on our Internet for our personal protection, for our children’s protection, and as an example to them. This security blocks our computers from accessing Web sites that are in categories we have deemed unacceptable for our family. I am the only one who has access to what is needed to change those security settings. This provides a great deal of protection for our children on the Internet. We still have additional levels of accountability and sheltering regarding our children and their computers. (We use a free family filter called K9, although there is a small fee if you are a business user.)

Because all of the adults in our family use computers for their livelihood, they must upgrade computers regularly. That means the old computers are passed down to the children. Beginning this school year, even our twelve-year-old had a laptop computer—one that Nathan bought new for work, then I used it for several years, next Sarah had it, followed by Jesse, and now it belongs to Mary. Though our children have their own computers by age twelve or so, they do not have Internet access on their computers.

At this point, only the children over eighteen have access to the Internet on their computers. Joseph (20) and John (18) use the Internet when a sibling is sitting beside them who can see their screens. That gives an added level of accountability. Even my husband, Steve, and older son, Christopher, have an open-door policy with their computer work. Any family member can walk into their offices and observe what they are doing on their computers. Sarah and I have full access to look over their systems as well, and we receive reports on where each person has gone on the Internet.

The younger children, ages 12, 14, and 16, can use the Internet on a family member’s computer if they are being supervised. Sometimes this is inconvenient in our family, not only for the one who wants to use the Internet, but also for the one giving accountability. However, this is a level of sheltering that is important to us. It is vital to us not only for our children, but also for Steve and me.

Joseph, John, Anna, and Jesse have e-mail capability on their computers, but they send and receive all their e-mail only through Steve’s computer. This protects them from e-mail spam in general, but particularly from the spam that is morally corrupting. For free e-mail accounts, we have found Gmail to be much less objectionable than many others that offer free e-mail. Many of our family members have Gmail accounts.

@Ozlsn,  there's a drag version of Words With Friends now.  I need to get that for my Words-loving daughter that went with her gay BFF to see Trixie Mattel the other night.  They got to meet Trixie. too!

I think you have to click on the link and (perhaps) actually buy something to bless their ministry.
