“Recovering” Part 7 – Where do we go from Here?

It’s been a long journey, and not at all enjoyable.  We’ve talked about the generational gap (part 1), the cyclical nature of church history (part 2), the King James Bible issue (part 3) (we’ll have an article series on that soon, LORD permitting), made a blame assessment (part 4), took potshots at the RFP guys (part 5) […]

“Recovering” Part 6 – Who is on the Lord’s Side?

Who is on the LORD's side? Question and image of armored medieval soldier carrying a sword

[Edited 6/30/2022 due to updates in legal situation and to add a link]  So far we’ve discussed the generational gap between many of today’s leaders and those affected most by the deficiencies of our churches, the “cycle” of movements in Christianity at large, the Bible issue and the rotten attitudes often displayed, a blame assessment […]

“Recovering” Part 5 – More of the Same

Read part 1: Meet the Millennials Read part 2: The Endless Cycle Read part 3: The Price of a Book Read part 4: Whose Fault is it The old saying is that men never learn from history, with the addition that those that do learn from history are doomed to stand by and watch it repeat […]

“Recovering” Part 4 – Whose Fault Is It?

“Recovering” Part 3 – The Price of a Book

It likely seems unfair to the dedicated reader that this author would promise a series of posts dealing with the “Recovering Fundamentalists”, yet after two long articles (read Part 1 here, and Part 2 here), nothing has been said against that movement.  We probably won’t get to them in this post, either, just to give […]

“Recovering” Part 2 – The Endless Cycle

Read part 1: Meet the Millennials Man, Movement, Machine, Monument, Mess Since the rise of modern Independent Baptist Fundamentalism (the “IFB” movement) starting arguably with J. Frank Norris, which incorporated the emotionalism and manipulative revivalist tactics of Charles Finney with the pragmatism of the modern American mentality, the body of Christ at large and the […]

“Recovering” Part 1 – Meet the Millennials

Over the last few years there has been a significant movement to rethink “fundamentalism,” a term often applied to churches that would qualify to be listed in our database here at KJV Churches.  Largely driven by younger believers, mostly Millennials, this movement has questioned many of the positions and attitudes held by a number of […]
