  1. Does anyone remember the strange community in Floyd County, Virginia named Rivendell where these paranoid Reformed Christians went to live just before Y2K where they could survive with their generators, storage food, and guns to shoot heathens who wanted food? I'm not entirely sure, but I think that Phillip Lancaster lived there at one time, the guy who wrote that truly horrible "Family Man, Family Leader" book that VF published. Here is the entry on Wikipedia from Floyd County, Virginia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floyd_County,_Virginia It was like the Y2K

    Calvinism as I Knew It

    Calvinism for my family wasn’t just an abstract theological concept. It informed every aspect of our lives, painfully so. The RPCNA, which I grew up in, is definitely Calvinist in their beliefs. They hold the Westminster Confession of Faith as subordinate only to the Bible in terms of doctrine. And the WCF is strictly Calvinist in doctrine. The TULIP acronym is a useful aid to what we believed and what our church believed: · Total Depravity: the doctrine that humans are completely unable to do anything good whatsoever. As in, even your thoughts are evil. I could go on fo

    Hi everyone, and thanks so much for welcoming me into the Free Jinger community! I'm very excited to be here. Please pardon any glitches with my new blog, since I'm just learning. To introduce myself: I was born into a large family, and homeschooled all the way through high school. My parents were from fairly normal American middle-class backgrounds, not fundie at all, but over time they became absolutely entrenched in the Christian fundamentalist way of thinking. We attended church services at a Reformed Presbyterian church (RPCNA) for almost my entire childhood, after my parents left a

    Since today is Sunday, I thought I'd make my first real blog post about Sabbath observance in my family of origin. I wrote this a couple months ago, and was waiting for an opportunity to share it with others. Enjoy! Or be appalled...whichever. In Christian circles, there’s a range of views on the Sabbath and how it is to be observed. Most Protestants agree that the Sabbath is on Sunday, based on the New Testament description of Jesus rising on the first day of the week and Acts 20, verse 7: “And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples were come together to break bread, Paul pr
  5. Awhile back, I mentioned making a thread about ATI beliefs vs VF beliefs. I know it's been a few weeks and I'm sorry - I got swamped with my final paper for my class (which I got a B in!), I got seriously ill, my doctor changed my anti depressant and I'm still adjusting, etc. I'm now able to make the post and point out some of the theological differences. Again, I am so sorry it took so long. ATI is Calvinist in belief. To put it simply, here are some basics on Calvinism. I'm pretty well-versed in it, as a common debate at my old school was Calvinism vs Arminianism. Calvin can best
  6. It's pretty in vogue for fundie families who grew up Baptist to transition into Calvinism. I've seen it a million times and I really don't understand what makes it so cool as it makes no sense. I guess it appeals to elitism. Jessa grew up Gothard/IFB now she and Ben will be "reformed". She's pretty lucky, she gets to side hug with a cool reformed guy. Enjoy? http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pBfrmX-9Jd0

    Was John Calvin Gay?

    I like to check the Puritan Forum because those guys and gals are sometimes a little crazy. Imagine my surprise when I found this question and not any answers that denied the charge The respondents don't really give any reason why it isn't true just that it isn't true. One person said that Calvin was convicted at 18 before he was a believer. Is that true? I don't want to have to wade into blogs debating back and forth the truth or falseness of the allegations. Have any of you heard about these accusations and are they true? If it isn't true, the people on the Purit
  9. I listened to that sermon that Lori Alexander the Monster posted the other day from John MacArthur. What I learned: 1. Feminism is satanic. 2. If you have a problem with his teaching, you're on satan's side. (This is nearly a direct quote) 3. "Old" means after age 60. 4. After age 60, women have no desire for sex ever. 5. Because they have no desire for sex ever again, widows over 60 should not remarry. This guy isn't as overtly stupid as PP and he doesn't appear certifiable like Stevie, but damn. He might be more dangerous because of his subtlety as

    Carolyn Mahaney

    This is a depressing quote. I realize that the family are Calvinist but this sounds extreme and sad. thewartburgwatch.com/2012/02/20/the-mahaney-girls-on-the-topic-of-sin/ I hesitate to ask what kids-even teenagers- could be doing that would cause their mother to have to spend so much time working on her children's faults. It sounds horrible. Does this mean that she kept her kids up late working on their 'sins' or did she stay up late and tell them about her sacrifice in the morning? I love my kids because they

    Calvin's Birthday

    Well, today is John Calvin's birthday. (barf) Do any fundies in the blogosphere have tributes to him today?
  13. So those crazy Calvinists are now posting clever little lists about why lesser Christions should not join a reformed church. The smugness, it burns. http://reformedbaptistfellowship.org/20 ... st-church/

    Calvinism, the Elect and the Unsaved

    Hi FJ-gang, I have only a rudimentary knowledge of Calvinism and was wondering if someone can educate this Jew. So, a few questions - How does the concept of 'the Elect' function in Calvinism? - Is my understanding correct that Calvinists reach out less to the 'unsaved' than non-Calvinist (Orthodox) Christians? - What is the relationship between 'grace' and 'works'? - Why is there such a focus on issues of sexual purity and far less of a focus of issues of social justice? (Which was a primary message of Jesus) Thanks!
  16. I have a few questions for those who grew up IFB, or are still IFB, about your church(es) and Calvinism. I grew up in a pretty fundie IFBC that was split between Calvinists and Arminians. I would NOT call my former church fundie-lite, although some of the families (as was mine) were, albeit very covertly, but it wasn't full on hard core fundie like some of the other churches written about here. I wrote about one of my "favorite" examples of humiliation/torture I was put through in another forum, but briefly here that is- let me set the stage- I was a gawky 13 year old, just on the verge of tur

    Calvinism "more scholarly"?

    The recent discussions on Calvinism vs. Arminianism got me thinking. It seems to be that on the many (fundie and non-fundie) Christian websites I have read trying to understand the difference between the two, there is always a reference to Calvinism being the "intellectual" or "scholarly" approach, or that it constitutes a more "sophisticated" theology. This also seems to be the sentiment of Vision Forum - is it just because they are attracted to the idea of being part of the elect, and thus conclude that Calvinism must necessarily be the more sophisticated approach, or do they argue that Calv

    Calvinism And Fundies

    I have noticed that many of our fundies have Calvinist leanings. Even Westboro Baptist Church has been described as practicing hyper Calvinism. Because I've known Calvinist in real life who were reasonable people, I am curious about the connection with Calvinism and fundamentalism. Ray Comfort has been described as following Calvinism. The folks at Vision Forum are admirers of John Calvin. I don't think that Michael and Debbi Pearl are Calvinist so I don't want it to sound as if I think that all fundamentalists share the same beliefs. Do any of you have any idea wh
