    It is your right to believe what you will.

    I do, but I don't have the right to complete free speech here on BB.

    The gospel is crucified between two thieves, Legalism, and Antinomianism.

    Free speech can be limited by private groups with certain limitation(s) to which you personally agree upon admission to said private group.

    There are myriads of groups which would give you greater latitude.
    e.g. Try Facebook to express your views. Let me be a friend.

    I have no problem with any private group limiting speech. It's completely within a group's rights to do so.

    One thing I might have in common with IFBs is my slight paranoia regarding Big Brother ;), so I would not join FB, but thanks for the offer.

    Actually brian according to the Patriot Act I believe Big Bro can demand access to any social media metadata including this one.

    True, but there are a lot of Brians in the world.

    Yes but the BB knows your TCP/IP address.

    There are ways to cover it up.

    There are organizations and/or individuals who will provide you with data encryption and identity protection.

    And that is because you have a right to privacy.

    I am a retired software legacy systems architect/engineer and have provided these services especially at the advent of micro-processors interfaced with mainframes on the WWW.

    Yes. All of my computers, phones, and tablets use a VPN to connect to the www.

    VPN can provide some security and encryption but it is very difficult to hide from uncle if he really wants to get you.

    One cannot have a true theology of the Scriptures and not have in impact their lifestyle.

    In fact, life style was a determination by the apostle John, James and by Paul that one evidenced as a believer by the demonstration of the lifestyle.

    This is unfortunate.

    I know that the greater number of folks in the fundamental / separatist group live what they preach and love both Scriptures and the lost.

    Sure there are the extremists.

    Just as there are extremists of all groupings.

    But, if there is a group who long for souls to be saved, who desire the growth of believers, who more often discern and warn of the worldly enticements, it is that which you (judging by the "true feelings statement" seem to despise.

    As it is the responsibility of the Government to protect the citizens, it is amazing what they can actually achieve without even those wise in the training can detect.

    Legalism is what I hate. Confusing tradition for Christianity, and law with the gospel. "Strong preaching" is defined as railing against those filthy rotten sinners, "out there", which forgets that the greatest sinner is looking at us in the mirror each morning.

    Well, they say these procedures are for your protection...
    Do they invite abuse and invasion of privacy? YES.

    I was adressing those who have proper theology, and then also decided to separate themselves from others due to not being "of like minded faith".
