    Hey brother, I will be praying for you.
    Another friend of mine's dad went to be with the Lord last Wednesday - another great saint unrecognised by most, but known by the Lord, a faithful servant of the Lord.
    These are the ones who many never hear about but who faithfully serve the Lord, not for the recognition of men, but for the glory of the Lord. Men like these will hear those words "Well done thou good and faithful servant.."

    This happened before you joined the forum. It was someone who joined using an offensive and vulgar username.

    Jim,
    Thank you for your testimony. It was a blessing to my heart to see how God worked in your life to bring you to Christ and your inward thought processes throughout the many years.
    I am sure that the Baptist preacher who first witnessed to you will rejoice with you in eternity. God will reward him in proper time.
    God bless!

    Jordan,
    IFB churches are independent churches; it is not a denomination. What Hyles, Ruckman, Anderson, Waite, etc... has no bearing on me nor the church I stated nor my home church. I imagine you have attended, or am currently attending, an IFB church that may not preach from the scriptures as much as you think he should. I do not know. None of the churches that I attended, or started (I have started four churches), uses none of the material of these men.
    I do know that the problems of the various IFB churches that I hear from other brethren here on OnLine Baptist is, in my opinion, exaggerated.
    The devotions that I have written here on OnLine Baptist, along with the studies that I have written, are mostly sermons and teachings from our Sunday school at the church that I started and currently the pastor of. If you look closely, you will see that all (or mostly all), of them are textual, with very little reference to some of the problems that you mentioned. From the IFB churches that I have attended, these textual messages (with very little hobby horse material), is standard fare. 
    It is my hope that that Lord gives you wisdom and guidance in you life.

    You have to remember that every IFB church is different and independent of each other. It can decribe a movement of independent Baptist churches at most but it is not a denomination. Independent Fundamental Baptist is a description that any independent baptist can use or not as they wish to identify themselves. I typically tell people that we are an Independent Baptist Church. The Fundamental moniker I typically reserve for other Baptist who want to know "what type".

    If you look around you'll probably find a conservative Baptist church that you can feel at home in but if not there are also some independent bible churches that use KJV as well which hold to the same baptist faith as many IFB but without the "stigma" of the title. I also heard some Calvary Chapels are good but I have never been to one.

    Things went great. I was privileged to lead a young lady to the Lord today. We've been praying for her for a while, and I've dealt with her two other times. This morning, she came to church ready to be saved! AMEN!
