    Ways to bring out the fundamentalist in a former fundamentalist

    1. Start preaching against tithing. 2. Start preaching that that the Individual Priesthood of the believer means you don't have to answer to the pastor. 3. Start reminding people deacons don't belong to the pastor. 4. Start pointing out that the preachers family somehow has all become gifted...

    Recovering Fundamentalist Podcast's marketing campaign

    Their message can be summed up with.... "Come over to our side. We'll let you do more without fussing at you. We'll just teach the "fundamentals" of the faith. Just don't pay attention when we remind you to give. Don't pay attention that we're dictating to you what the fundamental are and...

    Robbing Churches

    It is a pity that the average "preacher" only recognizes the word "robbed" in Mal 3 in their KJV. It would do them good to pay attention to another verse. 2Co_11:8 I robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service. Stop. Read it again...... At least Paul was honest. Paul...

    Most any worker, works much harder than the average "pastor or evangelist".

    I know you wouldn't know this from hearing the average fundamentalist talk of how hard they work for Jesus.... but the average worker pulling a 40 hour shift a week works MUCH harder than the average pastor drawing a salary. Which is one of the reasons, I've advocated for a "members...

    Legalism isn't the problem. It never has been

    You hear it from the RFP podcast. You hear it from IFB Preacher clips. You hear it from the "new guard".... The core problem with IFB fundamentalism is "legalism'. They are horribly wrong. Ironically, these same people, IFB Preacher clips removed, preach their own brand of legalism themselves...

    Politics and Religion?

    I saw a comment recently that reminded me of the ole.... "You shouldn't mix politics and religion"...... Do you know why people say these things? It is very simple. They want to be able to vote for anyone they want to vote for regardless of morality. Regardless of what others may say, THE...

    One Body

    Rom_12:5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. 1Co_12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. Eph 4:4 There is one body, and...

    Which local church?

    Craig Edwards wrote on his facebook page today..... Craig has always had an high opinion of what he believed throughout the years. He said for years that he never preached anything that the Bible didn't say.... only to admit that he changed his mind. Often preaching doctrines of men.... NOW...

    God gave me.....

    Throughout this country there are countless "preachers" standing in the pulpits of America claiming.... "God gave me" this to share with you. Why don't we point out the obvious. The message isn't God gave me, the message is God gave US. God HAS GIVEN US. Which brings me to a few points I've...

    How to really sell your message

    I don't know the times I've witnessed this happen. It really speaks to the carnal mind that all men possess. I've watched good people preach their heart out. I've seen them so emotionally invested in their pleas for the Truth, that they are thoroughly exhausted at the end of their sermon. I...

    Too few, too little..... hopefully not too late

    1. Too few are really preaching the Gospel. They'd rather preach a social message that stirs people to return to "old paths". A period following World War 2 when we took pride in our victory "over evil". Not realizing that man's evil wasn't confined to our enemies..... but every man does what is...

    The "Bruce Gerencser" example of abandoning God instead of men

    I've been reading Bruce Gerencser's website https://brucegerencser.net/. If you don't know him, it is rather interesting read. Yet, he has something in common with those he references. He has feel into the trap of abandoning God instead of men. Which really is one of the main "trials of...

    "Preacher Boy" free labor.....

    If a laborer is worthy of their heir...... Then why do all these "Leaders" get all this "free labor" from their "preacher boy" followers? If you really believe a laborer in Christ deserves monetary compensation..... then why are all these young preachers being abused by giving their hard work...

    Examples of Self Centered Ministries

    I have already named a particular person in the forum that is rather "new but old" to the ministry. That same person is into elaborate marketing programs to "sell" his "ministry"..... If you go to their facebook page, you will see a video clips of him kneeling to pray for america....... The...

    False Teaching?

    "God didn't see us where we were, God saw us where we could be"...... Now that statement reads like it came from a modern, liberal, LGBT supporting, Unitarian preacher...... But it didn't. Want to guess who said it?

    Revival sermons.... repeat after repeat.

    I remember the first time I realized that revival sermons are largely word for word repeats all over the country. I was utterly disappointed. I had gone to see a evangelist I admired and in another church some time after previously attending a similar revival he preached. I mean he repeated that...

    Evangelist to pastor and back again

    Example. CT Townsend who lead that "great revival" in Burlington NC..... has become a pastor. I know most people don't care but let me.... let you in on a few "secrets" you don't know. Most revival meetings are based upon nothing more than the "buddy system". Some "buddy" of another "buddy"...

    The irony and sadness of having a Bible you don't use.

    One of the greatest heralded events in modern history was the "common man" receiving the unbound Scriptures in their native language. This largely began with LXX and the collections that ultimately feed such works as we find in Codex Alexandrinus. Yet, it happened again on wider scale with the...

    Faith and Feelings

    As a young Christian, I did a study of the Scriptures many years ago to determine the Truth concerning faith and feelings. I saw this contradiction in what I was being told..... In one ear, I was hearing preachers say that faith has nothing to do with feelings. That you just need to trust God's...

    Living a fulfilling Christian Life

    I can honestly say I believe most Christians are just not happy. Sure. They'll pretend they are. They'll tell you they are.... but if they truly be honest, they're just not happy. I think it might be good if we discuss the why's and how's of living a fulfilling Christian life. First, its okay...
