I grew up, was saved in, and now pastor an IFB church. It wasn’t until I found this podcast that I began to realize that what I was preaching and teaching was not doctrine but manipulation. I did not preach the freedom of Christ, but I was preaching the “movements” view of fundamentalism. I was a hyper-separating preferentialist with a “god-complex” of the pastoral role. During the past several months my life has changed drastically with me truly rejoicing in what it means to live with a Gospel-centric world view. Though I have lost all of my “mentors and friends” and I am currently threatened with losing this church; I can rest in knowing I am serving the Lord in spirit and truth for the first time in my life. I am a recovering fundamentalist.
