Image Source: https://pixabay.com/en/rosary-bible-cross-book-699609/ The following is the transcript of an email exchange from a person writing to express his concerns about an alleged Roman Catholic influence on the modern Bible versions. I’m not sure if his argument holds any credibility because he declined to discuss it, but it does raise some valid concerns. I wish […]
Category: Independent Fundamental Baptist Church
My writing tends to be somewhat heavy and serious so every once in a while I like to add some humor to lighten things up a bit. Please don’t mistake this for a lack of respect or an attempt to minimize the seriousness of the abuse that happens among the Independent Fundamental Bapitsts. This is […]
Joe Lusk (AKA JJ Lusk), associate pastor of Hillcrest Baptist Church, recently came to the site to comment and attack us for speaking out against the Independent nature of the Independent Fundamental Baptists. Attempts to engage him in discussions failed so the next step is to reply publicly in this format. I don’t really care […]
I received an email recently from a site visitor who had some questions about the IFB’s teaching on Tithing and I wanted to address the questions and answer them on the site for all to read. Thanks for the great question!!! Please find the message below along with my reply: Hello Friend. I love your […]
The following is a contribution by: H.A. Parker. You can find out more information at pastorsinknead.wordpress.com ************************************************************************************ A tremendous effort to suppress criticism is ongoing fight in the Christian world, specifically for the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist denomination. The reason why this title goes with the Baptist label is primarily because this is the same group that […]
Richard Hivner, a former associate pastor at Candlestick Baptist Church in Spring TX frequented this site to voice his disagreement with it in the comments section. There are many comments he made with an invitation to open discussions about the topics presented here. Unfortunately Richard couldn’t keep himself from perpetuating the abuse that’s spoken of […]
I recently wrote an article on the number one complaint we receive here at www.BaptistDeception.com which is that IFB churches are “Independent” of and from other IFB churches and therefore are not a denomination or group of churches. You can read more about that here and I would recommend doing so before you proceed with […]
John 15: 1-8 A trademark of the IFB is the idea that “good Christians” bear fruit and “bad Christians” don’t bear fruit. I heard quite a bit growing up that fruit is an indication that you’re a “good Christian”. “You need to be a fruit bearing Christian…” the preacher would boom from behind the lectern. […]
The topic of “The Submissive Wife” came up recently and I planned on writing an article about it. Shortly thereafter I got an email from a reader about the very topic. My answer to her is what I planned to write about so I thought I’d just share the whole message for continuity sake. I […]
If you’ve been around the IFB long enough, you’ll quickly realize that the phrase “you’re just bitter” or anyone of it’s variations is typically the IFBer’s first line of defense against logic and reason. I’ve noticed this more and more over the years that I’ve been away from the IFB and I’m not sure if […]
The Independent Fundamental Baptist church could be defined as a cult given the multiple definitions of a cult and the characteristics of the IFB.
The IFB teaches that they are “independent” and as such are exempt from general scrutiny and exempt from generalizations. They deny they are a denomination as a result. This post attempts to debunk this fallacy.
