The focus of this site, therefore, is the issue of spiritual abuse and deception in the IFB churches.
This site also has a secondary emphasis on other Christian churches, but will mostly focus on the IFB Denomination.
Are we not supposed to be an example of Christ to the world?
Like others who have similar sites, the reason for concentrating on the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination is simply due to personal experience. Some are a little different and may be less strict or have different stances on scripture, but for the most part they are all very similar.
I can really only speak from my experiences so that is why this site is singling out the IFB.
Because of the definition of a cult I can’t say that the IFB is a cult exactly, however, it does have some cult characteristics which I will expose.
For example the IFB churches that I have experienced, believe that a person can not truly be saved if they read a version of scripture other than the King James Version.
Although I understand that good things still happen in IFB churches and that many people are brought to the Lord and salvation, I still believe that the IFB operates much like a cult.
Afterall, God can use a cult to bring people to him.
Part of the definition of a cult is “a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist” – Websters Dictionary While on the surface the IFB seems to be a traditional Christian organization, within the walls of the church there is false and extreme doctrine, heavy manipulation and mind-control of its members, and manipulation of the Word of God that hurts people.
It is not the intention of this site to hurt or defame anyone.
Much of what you will read here comes directly from my personal experience.
