Roger Jimenez says the New IFB movement produces “jerks”

Although Jimenez doesn’t tell us who he’s referring to, it’s pretty easy to see by looking at the comment section of any of the youtube videos put out by those who disagree with the New IFB’s teachings. Or perhaps he’s talking about people who push people down stairs in their church.

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and baby daughter 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, Comparative 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.

    Interesting website. You must think this whole “movement” is worth quite a bit of your time to do this. We’re you spurned by a New IFB Church? What’s your story?

    Have a good one

      I believe it is a scriptural mandate to identify those preaching a false gospel so that people are warned of their error. The little time it takes to operate this website is worth fulfilling that goal. I have never personally met anyone in the New ifb Movement.

    Sorry I just read the home page about your take. I see where you’re coming from. I’m growing immensely and serving God at a New IFB “apostate” church, and have been blessed immensely by discovering Anderson and the “movement”. I don’t wish anything against you and the Old IFB, or against Anderson and the New IFB. As long as you are teaching/preaching the King James and soulwinning with the right gospel I wish you all the best. I find internet anger to be a bit of a waste of time, I do hope that you’ll learn to follow the #1 internet rule and “don’t feed the trolls”. A lot of New IFB problems come from “trolling” activity. Hyperbole or over exaggeration or feigned boldness/masculinity. In short, a bunch of riled up people saying things they would NEVER say to someone’s face.

    Mighty works are being done in the Lord’s name though, so I am thankful. Take care.

      Anon, I understand that pointless internat anger is a waste of time. However, if you are idealogically consistent, you will realize that I am decrying what is a false gospel, as being taught by Anderson and co. I see them damaging the cause of Christ far more than helping it. You have seen the site so you know my criticisms. I also think that the great majority or the inappropriate internet behavior comes from Anderson’s side. A lot is directed by Anderson when he tells his followers to mob the social media accounts of other Baptist churches. I have personally seen it happen. His pride and his false gospel must be rebuffed.
