A post worthy of some rumination.

I think you may be painting with a bit too much of a broad brush, but understand that's not meant as a criticism, as its so easy to do. But I would agree that much of these are the case with what many see as the typical "IFB", or maybe the mega-IFB's. But for every one of those there are many small, 'insignificant' IFB churches doing the work of God faithfully, preachers who will never be invited to preach someone's conference because, even though they've faithfully served in their area for 10, 20, 30 years or more, staying in one place, bringing souls to Christ and discipling their small congregations, they aren't of note enough in the numbers game to really matter.

Very good points Mike and I agree on all of them.
