A New Search Feature

I've added a search tool to enable you to search my blog, which is kind of cool. If you want to find all the posts that have the word "idiot" or "liberal" or "bitter", you can now do that with ease (see how helpful I am?). Unfortunately it excludes comments, so you won't pull up the bitter liberal idiot who recently posted a comment about me going to hell, but maybe that's a good thing...

I would say that not reading that comment from the bitter liberal is indeed a good thing. lol

Very nice David! You have once again made Jesus VERY happy! You know that is exactly what he would have done during his time on earth....turn people from religion and call people idiots! He would be so proud....

Actually, Jesus did preach against religion and called the religious leaders of his time "serpents and a generation of vipers." I do the same with those who try to justify sin with some legalistic rituals (like this church). Do you not read your Bible, or do you just ignore those parts?

Problems within IFB churches

The Independent Fundamental Baptist movement is a small group within true Christianity, but it's devastating and often times damaging effects are large. Although they claim to be solely bible based and many are, their main focus often times is Pharisaical and legalistic to the point of hurting many new believers, turning unbelievers off, or just hurting the name of Christ as a whole.A good example of this can be found on Pastor Andrew Teesdale's of Everett Washington ... Fighting Fundamental Forum and his Baptist Board forum. It seems the only people who can control these forums, are those who are related or friends in some way or form to Andrew Teesdale.

If an outsider comes in who actually knows the bible or takes a stand on the IFB legalistic ways and how they have hurt many under these types of pastors leadership, they are immediately attacked and called names and basically ridiculed off the board if not banned. Not for name calling or attacking the messenger, but for their own views on doctrines other than their own. That can be fine and dandy if it were not for the fact that the ones who attack (often times pastors themselves) are FOUL MOUTHED, slanderous, lie about the poster, personally attack the messenger and not the message, (because they know they cannot) sarcastic, or just don't know the bible....bottom line is the forum owner plays favorites while innocent well meaning good Christians get hurt....much like what goes on within their churches. Their tactics in the church and off are the same.

Some of their legalistic teachings are King James Only bibles, women MUST wear dresses or they are not godly, no mixed swimming, no dancing, no drinking, women must not have their own opinions, that is the husbands job, or men in general. Basically the outward determines your right standing with God not your heart, and your own walk with him. With so much focus on the outward and not the heart (out of the heart spews ones true self and is evident on these forums) it is no wonder so few attend IFB churches.
