    Wow, I noticed some pretty strange things when I visited their sister church down in San Antonio. We never went back to this particular church because it was a bit scary. Check out this guys take and experiences in this IFB extreme church:

    Some things he wrote remind me of my own experience in seminary back in 92-95.

    Same stuff.

    You don't question authority. You're there to learn, learn.
    When you're "out there doing great things for the Lord" (winning souls, etc) then you can come up with your own teaching on what the Bible says.

    Warning !!

    Any graduate who becomes a Calvinist will have his name stricken out of the seminary's roster.

    Hehehehehe !!!!

    One time the college president, who also taught us Bible Doctrines, came up with this bright idea that "fetuses were not yet human, they had no souls yet".

    We had a jolly good time discussing that one, the prof nearly apoplexing right there in front of us students because a student questioned his "wisdom".

    Then one day he said that there will be no more souls saved during the Great Tribulation.

    Just for the heck of it, I pointed out that the Bible says something in Revelation about great multitudes coming out of tribulation, and that Scoffield says these were souls saved, and because I was feeling a bit combative at that time, I added that why should we believe you just because you say so, and here's Scoffield whose Bible is being read by millions all over the world ?

    We had a very rocky relationship, that pastor and I.

    Eventually, I became a Doctrine of Grace adherent, wrote him, and told him.

    I heard from some of my former classmates my name is no longer on the roster.

    Oh, well.

    That's awesome. Let them strike our names and blot them out from everyone human roster on earth. Our names are written in heaven.

    My guess is she went her own way.
    Probably married to some pastor with the same extreme ideas.
    On the other hand, from observation I know that those who have been under such stifling unscriptural sternness (sp ?) usually "backslide", for want of a better term.

    Well, I guess, like Tiny Tim says, let's "buy the book" to find out

    It was all truly sad.

    Both he and the girl were consenting adults (over 18). Not to mention that he never touched her!

    I wonder if race had anything to do with it?

    Pinoy, I'm sorry you went thru anything like what the Texas guy described.

    When I saw the thread topic I thought you meant to place this in the sports thread - I thought you had been to a game at the Ballpark in Arlington. We lovingly refer to it (although not the team that plays in it) as the Temple!
