It's your last chance to DO HARD THINGS!

Al Mohler and Randy Alcorn???? First that means that they're shelling out big, big, big money, at least, for Al Mohler. I don't know what you'd have to pay to get Randy Alcorn.

I think that Al Mohler makes sense when he talks about most doctrine (except that concerning women and wanting to turn the church into Calvin's Geneva, except that they might not burn anyone at the stake. I think of Randy Alcorn as a has been, and I think he was incompetent when he was in his prime.

Is this not a thing for young people? If so, why do they have old fossils (in terms of teens, cause Al's not too much older than me) speaking at this thing? Would you not want to get younger people who are competent in a topic? There are plenty of people who are 20 years younger than both of these men who are very learned and competent in the same areas.

Has anyone actually been to one of these or know more about them? Maybe I'm missing the point about what goes on. Sitting still to listen to Randy Alcorn sounds like a hard thing to me. Maybe that's the hidden meaning?

I'm astonished that they've made so much money doing this that they can shell out the bucks to bring in Al Mohler to wine and dine.

I was SO sure, before I clicked this post, that it was going to be a final call for sign-ups for a manly romp on the Amazon :lol:

I went a different route and thought it was a message from Mount Laundry sitting in my bedroom waiting to be washed. :oops:

I'm ashamed to admit I knew what it really meant. :oops:

I checked out the conference info and it ain't cheap to attend one of those things, but I'm sure that after paying for the venue and guest speakers, the twins paid for their college tuition and probably some property in Hicksville, Oregon to boot.

I do have to hand it to Brett and Alex: unlike most of the other fundies, they appear to have the ability to analyze and don't always toe the party line when reviewing a book. It's refreshing to actually see disagreement and argument on doctrinal points.

Aside from that ghastly "stumbling block" sex survey (the thing was a "stumbling block" in and of itself), the kids are better than 99.9% of the fundies out there; I might even label these guys fundie-lite. I agree with almost nothing they purport, but I wish them good luck in their adult endeavors all the same.

I suspect that Alex and Bret attended Patrick Henry for free, so the school could cash in on their fundie-celebrity status. Nothing to substantiate this, though. And I agree that they have raked in enough bucks to pay for their own school if it was not in fact comped by PH.

I'm sure that their half crooked dad taught them well and pulled plenty of wheeling and dealing on their behalf.

      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… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      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

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      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!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
