So glad to be a member of an Independent Baptist Church. Self governing and faithful to the scriptures in how the church is to operate. With a pastor who preaches exogetically, verse by verse through entire books of the bible. We have been 2 years so far, in the book of 1st Corinthians. Our pastor was voted in by the congregation after a search and recommendation by the deacon board. He could be voted out if he was deemed to be leading the congregation in error, such as the PCUSA and other religious organizations are doing. God bless this congregation for standing up for the truth of the Word of God.
Thirty nine years as an athirst until God brought this man into my life. He showed me the flaws and assumptions pumped into my head as a child. Praise the Lord he battles on for Jesus Christ and proclaims the truth to the lost.
I came out of the sbc 3 years ago. their head is turning in the right direction, but that is just the head, turn the whole body know! I pastored a sbc church that struggled both spiritually and physically(a congregation of 11 that eventually became 45 strong.) no one from the sbc reached out to help! the mega-churches got the attention! There was a many a time I would have Loved to have a brother pray for me or with me. It all goes back to one question WE ALL NEED TO ASK OURSELVES. How bad do we want revival in our Lives?
A response to Expositor: My earlier comment on Gods Providence in this case was in regards to Bill Maher being nearly the first visitor to the Museum given the fact that he hates God,Gods Word and Gods people.Is Mr Maher Troubled about something??? Hmmm I wonder if it could be his conscience. As to what I should read and believe. I will believe the scriptures alone. Mans opinions are just that "OPINIONS"
