I attend an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church. I know every church has their own way of doing things because, afterall, we are "independent", "local", "New Testament". Here's what has really been bugging me about a practice that we have. I believe it is a bad testimony on our part. We preach and teach that we ought to give God the Glory. Here's what I don't get: Why do we have people line up to have their Bibles signed when a special guest speaker comes? Doesn't that merely show us as giving glory to man? Besides, God's the author.. so why rob Him of the glory by allowing man to sign His book. I'm not saying all IFB churches do this, if yours does, please give me your take.
