Not so much Fundybook as "Pentecostalbook".
"Active spiritual warfare has become a daily norm for me over the past few months and tonight is no different. I wasn't even out of the parking lot @ [church name removed] after a time of worship and ministry, and satan was already telling me that I hd messed up and was trying to cause me to doubt what the Spirit did in and through me. And it's still going on.
I would appreciate prayer assistance in this battle and I would appreciate that those of you who take up the battle on my behalf would encourage me by letting me know.
This friend posts statuses like this every flipping day, now. If a light bulb goes out at his house or his car is low on gas or his bananas go a little brown, he's posting that Satan is after him. ETA: Five people have liked this post. I think I would be a bit worried if I thought I was being attacked by satan and my friends liked it!
How do you walk around like this? How is resting in the Lord and admitting your own negativity or the natural ripening of bananas not a lot easier to live with?

^ I lol'd at "I think I would be a bit worried if I thought I was being attacked by satan and my friends liked it!"
This person needs to chill out. Come to therapy. It'll do you good.

OK. This is from the same guy as my last post, and I feel kinda bad for picking on him because he's really nice, but the stuff he posts are a bit...unnerving.

Interestingly enough, the only person who liked this status happens to be a pastor's wife.
Do you honestly have to kill your spirit to please God? Because THAT'S what I'm getting out of this quote. It's chilling.

Same guy again. I guess I can SORTA understand this sentiment, but using words like "submit" and "authority" are very triggering. What're doing, reading How to Train Up a Child? I'm sorry, but this is very disturbing to me.
Quote:Learning to enjoy your parent’s authority is the first step towards welcoming God’s authority. Don’t tell your children off for being children. Children break things and drop things…but ensure they obey you. Teach them to submit to your authority…Don’t let your child rule the home. If you do, you’ll be teaching them that they are king in their lives. They’re not. It won’t prepare them for wider social interaction. And it won’t prepare the to meet the true King. ~Tim Chester & Ed Moll, Gospel-centered Family
The fuck, SERIOUSLY?!

It's a reference to a popular Christianese terminology "die to self". But the theology is nowhere to be found in the Bible. People reference Paul saying "I die daily", but if you read the excerpt where it is from, he specifically mentions literal death, as in almost drowning, getting mauled by bears and stuff, all for the sake of getting out there to share the gospel. In other words, he puts his life in danger.
But the truth is we don't need to die daily, because in Christ, we died once with Him. Instead, we reckon ourselves dead (count ourselves as already dead to sin and law and condemantion) and yet alive unto God.
The "dying daily" is a form of works sanctification, that by doing less bad stuff, we will somehow become more good.

TBH, it reminded me of Teen Mania. Ever heard of it? They say stuff like "Beat your body and make it your slave." Look it up. Total cult. Very triggering stuff.

Quote:It's amazing how all those pesky little discipline problems I was having went away once I stopped spanking my daughter. She is such an amazing kid.
A message sent to me by a fundy missionary's wife on deputation:
Quote:Love you...don't know who and what you're listening to but be careful...stay in God's Word...it's the manual from our Creator and owner...spanking (done the right way) is His idea and even though It's difficult, it does work. Training a child involves a lot more than just corporal punishment but a child left without it will bring their Mother shame according to the Bible. I'm definitely no expert but I do believe God and His Book...I think you do too...don't forget to keep reading it. LOVE YOU!
right. because the Bible COMMANDS us spank our preschool kids...
Quote:I stopped several months ago just to see what would happen. What I realized first was that most of the spankings I had been giving her was because I was trying to control her, not guide her. I was wanting to spank her out of frustration, not love. I realized my need for more patience and God definitely came thru for me. Next, I realized that my daughter has an incredibly analytical mind. She has no problem doing anything I want her to do as long as she knows why I need her to do it. Of course, she is not without consequences if she does not obey. After getting rid of some of her toys a few times, I'll i have to say is "pick up your toys before I start throwing them away" and she does it instantly. I don't agree with violent forms of discipline because that is teaching the child that it is ok to use physical force to get others to do what you want. (which is just barbaric) She hasn't hit me or anyone else for the longest time now. I definitely believe in discipline and boundaries and making sure she has respect towards others and herself, but I've found I do not need to spank her to achieve that goal. The plus side is, that she even listens to me in public where the threat of a spanking is useless. Love you too, and I hope your delivery goes smoothly! Can't wait to see pics of baby [kid's name]!
Because, if you're going to admonish me "in love", I'm going to defend my (clearly superior) actions "in love".
She and I used to be besties at HAC

Statements like that make me furious. My pastor said that all the time. It's like they're so mindless that they can't comprehend people thinking something on their own. It has to be because they were listening to some heretic or other. My pastor didn't even consider the possibility of my thinking and studying for myself to resolve an issue. He kept asking who I was listening to.

Red is me. Blue is the private school run by my old church. My one remaining fundy friend can see the post. I wonder if I'll get any bites?
Oh yes, the link leads to here.
