I grew up in the IFB. It never felt comfortable and after many conflicting instances, I left not only the movement but Christianity. My hatred of God stemmed from the IFB experiences. I was convinced that either God wasn’t real or maybe even hated me. About a month ago a friend shared this podcast. I have since listened to them all and have felt the push to read the Bible, not out of religious tradition but to find out who God really is. Through this podcast and through the Bible, I have found that the Gospel alone has the power to reconcile and save. Today, I am a follower of Jesus. Thank you for making this podcast so that those who are far from God may be brought near to Him despite any circumstances.
