Fundies on the brain

Recommended Posts

I was uncertain what to call this thread as it concerns people that I know in real life.

My friend's family is conservative Christian. The church that they used to attend had a family with several children. After attending some sort of conference, the family(not my friend) decided that they should let God decide the number of future children. Up to that point, they had kids because they wanted a large family. The conference changed their desire for kids into a mission for God, I suppose

A daughter, let's call her Sydney, from the large family used to hang out with both my own and my friend's son. Let's call her son, Bob.

Sydney had a noticable crush on Bob, who treated her like a younger sister. When he worked in retail, she and her friend would walk up to his store and wait for him to go on break. Last year, she asked him to attend a concert with her family but he declined.

This year, she has begun texting Bob. Bob asked her on a date but she told him that she has someone lined up. She isn't certain if the relationship will advance because the boy told her that he loved her more than god so her parents might put the nix on the relationship.

Her family believes in courtship, leaving the number of children up to god etc but don't mind their daughter being open that she might be searching for a new boyfriend.

It just struck me as humorous that on one hand, Sydney is not above finding her own future courtship partner but on the other hand, she plays by her family's rules. It is a strange mix of more modern dating habits and fundamentalism

Bob doesn't want to court so I don't see their relationship going beyond friendship

Im in the car and was flipping through my bible and came across this verse that i had to post on FJ

"And david said to Uriah Tarry here to day also and to morrow I will let thee depart.So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day and the morrow" 2 Samuel 11:12

This reminds me of our maxwell family which means boredom has broughr about a case of fundies on the brain! Since joining FJ I feel like my brain is turned into fundie radar like I can go somewhere and spot denim skirts and guess what denomimation they usually belong to or when I get religious invites to church its like a monster has been created lol and most ppl have no idea why we find fundies and their agendas scary. Anyone else have this?

Ah, see, my preferred Bible translation says:

"And david said to Uriah It is tarry here today, therefore you will be stuck in the tar -- to morrow I will let thee depart. So Uriah abode in the Macadam, that day and the morrow"

No wonder the Maxwells think they are so special! Uriah's Canada troubles were fortold!

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
