    I also graduated from BBC Springfield and am complete agreement with you that things have changed for the worse. The local church I attended called the pastor's son to take over and he wears a pony tail! G.B. Vick would have been apopletic!

    I added BBC to the poll.

    Thanks BroMatt, very timely. What was it, anything I could have fixed?

    Yes, but it is something I also need to fix. When you add someone to the IFB forums, you also need to keep them as regular members as well. As of right now, the IFB members are not allowed to post in the Lounge and other forums, but by keeping them in the members group as well fixes that. Pretty much to fix, need to give IFB members access to all the forums.


  3. Thank you brother for explaining. I did notice a few things like book selling that was pushed, but some of the other things I have not noticed in RU meetings here in the Northeast. I too would be disturbed if RU was pushing that alcoholism was a disease and just referring to higher power. I too would feel uncomfortable and get out of there like you did. The RU meetings I have been to has been heavy of God, and scripture was the main teaching book. I'm wondering now how different that each chapter must run. RU meetings here are only 1 day a week on Friday nights, and its alot 1 on 1. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I am familiar with them.  I attended some of their meetings several years back and had some pretty bad experiences.  There are also things that they are into that I disagree with.  I am glad that you have had good experiences with them.  Thank you for the thought.

    I have been to about 10+ RU meetings in different churches. I have preached at some and I even preformed a wedding  during a RU meeting. Granted I have always been on the other side of you in the RU meetings as I mostly preached in them. 

    I have noticed that each chapter runs independently and different. I have been to some that I did not like and would not attend, and  I have been to others with hundred in attendance and countless lives that have been changed. They tend to go in the direction that the church is in. 

    Out of curiosity and my own information, what was it that you do not agree with? I'm not asking to argue with you, just so that I can look into it myself as I may have overlooked something. Things may have also changed in recent years.

    All of us were judged by God in the fall to be now dead in Adam, and so all were lost and enemies of God. the Lord intended for the death of jesus to be intendedto save a faithful remnant chosen out from all lost hujmanity, as He will determine to save His own out, and to permit the remainder to ahve their will be done and stay in their dead sin nature states. The Cross of jesus has the Grace to have indeed saved all sinners, but the intent was to save out the Elect of God. There was a pattern for that in Israel, as God always reserved and saved out a faithful remnant unto Himself.

    You did not answer the question. I'm hoping you are not like the calvinist around here that just talks & talks without answering the question at hand. I really would like to discuss this with you.

    So, there are people that God never intended to get saved? How would that statement line up with this Scripture?

     2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  

    I've had many discussions with Calvinists (Isn't it strange that their doctrine is named after a man?) and the dispute for this verse is that since this verse is talking about the second coming of Christ that is talking about God waiting. Peter is explaining the reason for the delay in Christ's second coming. In reality, He is God, He does not have to wait for anyone.

    One question that I have is if God never intended everyone to get saved, then He hates those people. Then why is it that the same God is commanding me to love them that He hates? Bible commands us to love our neighbor, why would He want me to love someone on this earth that He hates, only for them to spend eternity in Hell?

    I don't know why - can't explain it, but I don't like the term "shut-ins".

    I can't think of anything better, and it is descriptive, but it just doesn't sit well with me......🤔🙄😕

    lol, I know you said you can't think of a better term, but you must call them something...what is it you call them?
