Check it out: Thanks for posting this. Thank you for reading this post. Evangelists were hired guns, men who came to minister and stir up the church and then ride off into the night. Straining at gnats on one hand, while practicing, ignoring, or covering up blatant immoral acts on the other hand, is wicked no matter who is doing it, how big their church is, or how close their friendship happens to be. For fifteen days — including three Sundays — Hardman would preach to saint and sinner alike. Revivals were a way of energizing — for a time — complacent, lazy, indifferent church members. Heretics would be anybody who disagreed with any aspect of IFB KJV-only doctrine. You are right on. I came of age at Trinity Baptist Church in Findlay, Ohio. Not so much. These are the people who want to completely abolish separation of church and state and freedom of religion and force everyone to live by their IFB standards.

Each night, before the service, Shuler would refresh his memory by playing the tape of that night’s sermon. No need to study, just throw in a few relevant illustrations and regurgitate what had been said before. This post intrigued me and I did a little research--found this super-interesting blog from a former 25-year IFB pastor-turned vocal atheist and read through most of it.

I think one of the issues is most people who didn't grow up IFB have never heard of the denomination and don't distinguish them from Southern Baptist, but there is a very big difference. As an IFB pastor, I followed in the footsteps of my pastors. Now to the subject of this post: IFB evangelists. I don’t doubt for a moment that these men believed that God was calling them to be evangelists. It's so bad that you can't even go out to eat at a restaurant that serves alcohol without them complaining and lamenting about how bad everything is. Some evangelists just plain ask, “Brother, is there anything you need me to address this week?” Every pastor, myself included, had a list of grievances he would love to have addressed by an outside party. If you watch his videos, you can see they will go as far as putting to death any dissenters, especially LGBT people. Over the twenty-five years I spent in the ministry, numerous evangelists preached for me. Seasoned evangelists developed a pool of sermons to preach from. If they took power, at first it would just be the LGBT community but it would likely expand to all "heretics" eventually. A community for former Christians of all denominations. Occasionally there would be a special musical group too, but most of the time our minister of music would work with our own church choir to prepare the selected music. The IFB may only consist of less than 10% of Christians, but together with their evangelical and conservative Catholic allies in the culture wars, they are a formidable political force that threatens the freedom of ALL Americans.
