I understand, my mother feels the same way about our services :D.
I did not mean to attack you, at all, just an observation from my position in the middle of the road....a compromiser by IFB standards.  :)
I've been accused of waffling because I'm too fundy for the free birds and too freebird for the fundys......

No problem.  I did not look at anything you said as an attack.

Ah, yes, and because the iconic, sinless virgin Beverly attends an SBC, it is a telling condemnation of all things IFB!

Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner.
Titus 2:8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

As "Independent baptist" pastors & churches we sure seem to spend a lot of time telling other "Independent baptist" what music they should have and what ministries are best and how they should run their churches.

I think we have forgotten what our true calling "commission" is.

Even though the name "Independent Baptist" carries the idea that everyone decides the way they should carry on the ministry, it is not so.  Southern Baptists are known for certain things.  Independent Baptist are no different.  IFB are known for soul winning, dress standards, preaching, busses, conservative music, etc.  Not saying that it is right or wrong - just the facts.  :)

Right. Because the only thing we should really care about is witnessing, and if we somehow care about the worldly (in our opinion) direction of God's people at large we are obviously taking away another church's independence and neglecting our only job, the Great Commission.

LOL!  When I read that, I "heard" it in a low-pitched Stan Harris voice.

LOL!  I can hear Stan yelling that.  I had a roommate that use to yell it in the door room in a high pitched voice.  it was quite funny.

In our zip code and hundreds of zip codes surrounding us, there are countless numbers of independent Baptist churches that are nothing like what people on this forum consider independent Baptist.

Many, many country .... and some town and city churches.... are not affiliated with any denomination and are "independent Baptist".    Usually, a handful of members - often mostly family of some sort (as long as they can keep it straight).  Many are SB in practice and use SB SS curriculum, but they are not SB and will tell you they are independent.
