I "used' to be an IFB, or at least a member of that church denomination.....however I foudn it kept me laden in shame, rules, and inauthenticity, so I left and got healed....I stayed out of church for 4 years to 'fast' from the programming in my brain, and am just attending a church again for the first time. There was a ton of good from the IFB....hands down, I have not seen hospitality like that anywhere else. I know the people really *loved* us but I could not keep jumping the bars....they got higher and higher, and I fell from grace and became disillusioned with God.
Either way, I am in agreement that name calling catholic people is not congruent with what Christ emulated, and breathed from The Spirit. If you can only get along with other IFB's, and denounce all others, you have a much bigger issue than finding comraderie. The fact that there are not any IFB's who fit your bill, is not anyone's problem but your own. With all the legalism and other ism's running rampant today in the Body Of Jesus, i do not feel bad calling it out like it is. I would die speaking the truth to somewone who has been abused, squelched, oppressed, and poisoned spiritually, and provoked to keep living in shame, guilt, and perfectionism.
