Much of what you will read here comes directly from my personal experience.Much of the information contained within this site can be generalized to other churches, but not all of it.While I can’t say that every IFB church is run in a spiritually abusive manner since that would be an impossible claim to knowledge, I can easily infer, based on my experience with multiple IFB churches and based on others who I’ve talk to or shared their stories on this site, that most are.
I’ve been accused of making the fallacy of hasty generalizations or that I’m simply over generalizing based on just my experience. This site is dedicated to exposing the Mind Control, Manipulation, Deception, Spiritual and Emotional Abuse, Heresy, Legalism (“Phariseeism”), and Authoritarianism behind the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination (IFB).I was a member of a spiritually abusive Independent Fundamental Baptist Church for a little over 25 years.Am I saying that the church and the people in the church should be perfect? Pastors and church goers are human, however, the church should be a place where humanness is met with the Grace of God not the judgmental legalism of the Pharisees.A good friend of mine told me once that people who were abused have a tendency to shy away from the abuser and the object used to abuse.
Although I understand that good things still happen in IFB churches and that many people are brought to the Lord and salvation, I still believe that the IFB operates much like a cult.
