Bruce Mejia & Adam Fannin wish for the deaths of James White & John MacArthur

I am not a Calvinist, so I am no friend of James White, Jeff Durbin, or John MacArthur, among others who hold to that theology. However, just because someone believes wrongly on that doctrine does not mean we are right to wish them to die.

The New IFB disagrees. In the following clip, you can see Bruce Mejia, now pastor of First Works Baptist Church wish for the death of James White (Who he calls “James Wine”).

Adam Fannin, now pastor of Law of Liberty Baptist Church then wishes for the death of John MacArthur. “Maybe John MacArthur will die this year, maybe God will really bless us with killing of some major false prophets.”

Standing by and complicitly agreeing to this kind of sinful talk were Jason Robinson, Pastor of Mountain Baptist Church; David Berzins, pastor of Strong Hold Baptist Church; Patrick Boyle, pastor of Revival Baptist Church, and New IFB member Chad Rich.

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.

The fact that “The New IFB” consistently preaches on death of those by God on who oppose them, tends to develop a dangerous precedent by which those within their “denomination” would take action on the premise that “God” stipulates such an action would be justified.

This is no different than by which Islam functions.
