Flat Earth Cognitive Dissonance Within the New IFB – Tyler Doka a Flat Earther!

The New IFB has some strange cognitive dissonance going on right now. As of this post, The New IFB website, run by Faithful Word Baptist Church, has Tyler Doka and Great Harvest Baptist Church listed in their directory.

Presumably, this means that the head honchos of the New IFB believe that Doka is one of them. Doka preaches some sermons and is featured in several videos alongside other New IFB preachers on the New IFB youtube channel. But at the same time as this, Doka is also called out by name on the New IFB youtube channel where this video begins with Anderson calling Doka an “idiot”, and even more confrontation is on Steven Anderson’s other YouTube pages.

Doka revealed himself as a flat earther in the morning service at Great Harvest. Since then, he also has preached a second part, and begun a YouTube series called flat earth moments. In the Flat Earth moments video (published 6 hours ago) Tyler distances himself from the new IFB saying “Unlike the New IFB I’m gonna use a lot of scripture to prove why…”

Anderson preached a message on “the flat earth debunked” this past Sunday night, which included Anderson saying that he would not fellowship with flat earth pastors . (A clip on this specific part of the message is on the sanderson1611 youtube channel here), He called out Doka directly for going flat earth, so we should expect to see Doka’s name get wiped from the New IFB channels and website as if he never even existed very soon.

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and children am a faithful member of my local independent Baptist Church. I have taught Sunday School classes and children’s classes, and also had the opportunity to preach at several churches. I teach Bible college classes on the Pentateuch, Atheism and Faith, Chrsitian Denominations, Bible Preservation (A defense of the underlying texts of the KJV), Bible Geography and Customs, Church Graphic Design, and some others. My father is an Independent Baptist Pastor in Wisconsin, and I grew up in a home full of love for the Lord. My parents raised me in the Bible, and are faithful to this day in witnessing and discipling. Although I was constantly immersed in biblical teaching and preaching, I did not personally believe in Jesus as described in John 3:16 until my freshman year in Bible college. In the many years since then, I have grown in grace and the Lord has given me opportunity to serve him in ministry. Among other ministries, I run my church’s print shop and participate in door-to-door evangelism. In doctrine, I affirm the truth that has been passed down from church to church since the time of Christ. I affirm the deity of Christ, his death, burial, and bodily resurrection, the personhood of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the inerrancy and infallibility of the scriptures, the inspiration and preservation of the scriptures, the imminent return of Christ and his future literal millennial reign. I accept the canonicity of the 66 books of scripture, I believe that God commands all men to repent, that Christ draws all men to himself, that any person can believe and be saved. I believe salvation cannot be forfeited or taken away. I believe Christ’s command to go to all the world and preach the Gospel is still applicable to us today. I believe in a future literal judgment seat of Christ and a Great white throne judgment. I believe that no person will enter heaven except through Jesus Christ. I reject all false religions: Islam, Judaism, new Age, etc. I reject the teaching that God elects some men to damnation, giving them no chance to be saved. I reject the idea that God did not preserve his words and that recent manuscript discoveries provide us with a more accurate Bible that was not available to past generations of Christians. I reject the concept of a universal church. I reject the idea that Baptism plays a part in salvation. I believe many things additionally not listed here. My views align with the scripture and with the beliefs that faithful churches have held since the time of Christ, and have held under the title of “Baptist” for many centuries now.
