My Pastor teaches, No BIG I’s or little u’s – and I am on board with that!
However, the IFB is riddled with BIG I’s and little u’s. I have tested this truth more than once. If you’re not in the correct “camp” i.e. went to the “correct” school, wear the correct suit, tie, or glasses; rub elbows with the correct pastor, practice the same preferential teaching of the sheep, maintain the same made-up doctrine touted as a fundamental; well, you’re surely not spiritual and no hope of attaining what pastor ‘so and so’ who pastors a big ole’ megachurch in the IFB has attained.

Obadiah 1:3,4 “The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?

Don’t be duped into believing that the word ‘Baptist’ on a sign connotes a pure proclamation of God’s Word.
