    ...and thus shows his ignorance of history. Pink WAS for boys before (I think) Word War I, and blue was for girls. It shifted post-war. It may be WW2 instead of WW1. It's like the ignorance of brides wearing a white wedding gown... this was started by Queen Victoria.

    Isn't that a good thing? Arson is bad... heh.

    Titles vs Man of God

    Yes! I abhor that title. If I recall correctly, it's only used once in the New Testament in 2 Tim 3:16, where it does NOT refer to the pastor. In fact, "man" there is the word for "mankind" - a modern expression would be "...that the people of God may be..." I did once hear a message from...

    Titles vs Man of God

    Or simply compare their words against what God has said. Sometimes, it's not all that complicated.

    Grace Journey is out by Cindy Hyles Collins

    Indeed. I don't have to look far - in my own life, I could have and did use this phrase many times; some times, it was clearly God's leading; other times, it was my own inclinations I was following. There are big decisions, such as joining a church or whom to marry, and there are lesser...

    Contemporary Christian Music (again)

    Not just on radio; these days, many IFB churches have specials that are toned down CCM.

    David Hyles being sued

    Agreed. If they want God's blessings upon them as a church, they need to acknowledge the sins of the past and not cover for bad leadership in the past.

    David Hyles being sued

    I'm not sure what you mean by "still in progress"; Jim Vineyard is dead, and Dave Hyles has not been part of FBCH for 30+ years. If you mean that FBCH hasn't fully made it right, then yes, but that's not "still in progress". I think that the current pastor has been there long enough that it's...

    Contemporary Christian Music (again)

    As with so many discussions, terms matter. I don't think many IFB leaders even know what CCM is, except maybe for songs with a beat. It saddens me that so many IFB churches claim to be against CCM, but their special music is filled with CCM artists and songs; at first, it is someone 'toned...

    Grace Journey is out by Cindy Hyles Collins

    Certainly true... everyone always claims to be led by the Lord in whatever they are doing, even if it turns out to be something else.

    There is still a web site, apparently, but they don't seem to be posting very much.

    David Hyles being sued

    I'm surprised that they haven't already had changes made under the current leadership.

    David Hyles being sued

    That would be wrong, I think, since justice is based upon truth, and there is no reason for the church to be hiding records in this matter.

    David Hyles being sued

    Yes, but the church is not really the same today as it was back then... it really just looks like a hope that the church will give her money to not pursue this. It was JH that pushed for the cover-up, and the 'inner circle' helped. I suspect that the multitude of the church didn't know what was...

    For the formerly IFB-where did you go after leaving?

    Exactly! There are abusive people in IFB pulpits who make loyalty to themselves the ultimate truth. Though they claim to believe the Bible, the only harp on those few things above... At the old church, we constantly heard a refrain about short hair on men, and that women should not wear...

    I was googling Old Paths; I had been cleaning up some old bookmarks, and the one for Old Paths no longer worked.

    Hi... it's not really a welcome as a new user, but I've been gone a little over five months. It's been an interesting time: I was concerned about my job and COVID... we were not set up to work from home. I had thought we were just about to get back to normal when... behold! no more paycheck...
