Ok, well the original poster is a close friend of mine.
I don't know the person who replied but he's got the local fundy church's basement college listed as his college on his facebook profile.
I honestly find I cannot reply now because whatever I say would tear him to shreds really. Nobody's christian walk is perfect. And nobody knows for sure what God thinks of them... Matt 7 makes it clear that many people will try and spend their whole lives serving God and find they've been serving the wrong master. So...
Edit: Ok, I did reply, and I'm glad I did, cause it turns out he didn't actually understand what the question asked /facepalm. Future fundy preacher...

Yep. I have a deacon from church who never posts but I'm sure he reads everything. When my daughter was in highschool I warned her about friending everyone from church who sent her a request. Then there is the church music director that comments on things way over her head. Our family has its on stupid humor and she wades in to scold us on occasion. The husbank trounces her when needed. She does this to several of the young adults and they have started to block her or defriend her.

found this gem on a friend's wall....
"[In Greenville], one of the greatest hindrances to a church's sense of community is the larger Christian 'community' in which we live, work, etc." -Chuck Bonadies (#Hammer,MeetNail)
Ok yeah.... so where in the world does THIS fit in there??
"Here in NJ we are far from the bubble effect and it is still a struggle for believers to place a priority on Sundays centered around the Lord and worship of Him. At least when I am back in Greenville, the churches are well attended - by families. They even dress for worship! It is hard to field enough men in suit coats and ties up here to usher at times. This may be a generalization, but it seems as if we need to get a fresh view of His holiness."
I particularly love the correlation of "suits and ties" and "holiness".
RE: Fundybook - Tiarali - 09-25-2011 10:44 PM
I was really pleased on Sunday to notice that some of the men who were ushering at church on Sunday were in jeans.

I like THIS doozy from a friend of an old BJU classmate:
"It was made very clear to us that people who listened for years to pop music from the 60s have had their sensibilities ruined and their spiritual discernment corrupted, but fortunately for them people who listened for years to pop music from the 50s are here to teach them all about high culture."

I have visited churches where the ushers were in jeans, but some of them were women!! Yep, how 'bout that?
What was that about "suit and ties and holiness"??

I can't tell either. My friend commenting asking the same thing but no reply.

The way that statement is constructed, I find it very hard to take it any other way than facetiously. Maybe it's just because I want them to be making fun of the system rather than agreeing with it!

It's got to be facetious, and it's very, very funny!
Once I pointed out that the chorus book that my dad's local church sang out of on Sunday nights in the 1960s when he was first saved (he still had it and loved the songs in it) contained songs all written in the 50s and 60s. So I asked him why he thought it was wrong when I wanted to sing out of a songbook with songs from MY present time. That conversation didn't go really well.
