Chuckles is ticked! Really ticked!
Most IFB pastors preach against Rock Music, Contemporary Christian Music, length of hair on men, women who wear pants, whether women are causing men to “stumble” because of how they are dressed, etc. Their University, that was self described as the “bastion of fundamentalism” has so many heavy and petty rules it would make the Pharisees from Jesus’ time tired. They preach on and on about what the Bible is either vague about, or completely silent. When abuse victims cry out for help they are often told “let go and let God take care of it.” Even after conviction of Ernie Willis. Even after Chuck Phelps completely discredited what he has said and written under oath in a criminal trial, a representative (spokesman,”Staff Evangelist’) from Bob Jones University named, Mike Schrock wrote the following on Facebook!
“[I have] insider information that makes that he [Phelps] is not hiding anything. I remind you that when it first happened Tina agreed it was consensual, that is why I don’t agree with the juries decision,”
A screen shot of the whole discussion can be read below. Tina never said it was consensual. Testimony from the trial from both Phelps and Christine Leaf admitted they said it was consensual because they took the word of a degenerate who liked to rape teen girls, over the Tina. Chuckles has heard from defenders of Phelps that Phelps was trying to save the man’s marriage. He had a wife and kids. Tina was young, she would give up her baby, like it was giving up a puppy to the pound. Remember that comment, Phelps made on the under oath that Ernie had more to lose than Tina did? The leaders and many of their followers agree with them.
Recently, Chuckles was told, IF Tina hadn’t become bitter, and been influenced by others, and just given it all over to God, she would have been fine. After all, she is now married with a husband and children!
Wake up people. Rape has been called, “soul murder” for a reason!
Leaders of Independent Baptist Fundamentalism continue to refuse to acknowledge there are more serious problems.
Just last night, one of the leaders told me personally that the jury was “rigged” and Tina Anderson lied. He went on to cite that Tina was not “saved.” He did NOT say, in his opinion. He was insistent that Tina Anderson was not saved! Obviously the State of New Hampshire is completely incompetent and in on some sort of conspiracy. After all, none of what was charged and lead to convictions EVER happens in these churches … it just doesn’t. All of you who say differently are being bitter and are part of the conspiracy as well. Hope you all see the obvious sarcasm in that last comment. Sadly, it is not too far off from the way they rationalize things. Problems such as child molestation, rape, are either outright ignored, the victim who speaks out or the victim and those who advocate for them are shunned, and declared “unsaved.” Hey, Fundamentalist pastors, leaders and followers who say such things. Chuckles wants to set you straight!
I have heard domestic abuse perpetrated by husbands is sometimes praised by Pastors from the pulpit. I heard a pastor tell the men in his congregation that it was sometimes necessary to spank their wives into submission. Chuckles walked out of a service where pastor was giving demonstrations about how to spank properly using a real child!
Close friend of the late Matthew Jarrell is just more vocal. Phil Kidd says publically, what many preachers only say to their most brainwashed members. Phil Kidd was a close friend of the serial rapist Matthew Jarrell. Phil Kidd wrote, “Hey Lady Shut Up.” Phil Kidd, said in a sermon he was preaching that some women needed to be raped to learn submission. Phil Kidd openly racist, even sporting his confederate boxing gloves and confederate flag tie. The late Matthew Jarrell’s good friend, Phil Kidd is known to scream words from the pulpit that you wouldn’t hear from the most crime ridden part of a inner city, or the sleaziest bar. Phil Kidd had the nerve to write this about cults.
Until the silent majority in these churches and colleges wake up, and demand accountability! Until the ‘Amen Joe’s’ stop treating these men like god in the pulpit and demand accountablity, we are going to see more Tina Anderson’s, and more pastors and leaders who are caught covering up things, or perpetrating evil “of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans…”
Pastor Matthew Jarrell wrote the following in September 2003. Matthew Jarrell was still the Pastor of Old Path’s Baptist Church in Pennsylvania. This was published after Jarrell was arrested for soliciting a prostitute who was actually a undercover policewoman in Baltimore MD. The date of his arrest was April 15, 2003. Two guns were also found in his truck at the time of the arrest. Jarrell plead guilty and was sentenced to eighteen-months probation for the gun charges.
BUILDING CHURCHES AFTER WHOM?
Two of my dear preacher friends and I attended a meeting a while back in what was supposed to be a fundamental, independent, Baptist church. When I got there I was disturbed and troubled by what I saw. The church reminded me of some of the worldly establishments that I hung out at when I was lost. When I heard the music I thought I was back in a bar. Here I was in a church, listening to the same rock music that God had saved me from. Latter when I left, I picked up a church brochure and it boasted that contemporary music was the official church music. Reader, the concept of contemporary by definition means to be in step with the world. When churches feel a need to get in step with the world and its music, they are getting out of step with God! New versions of the Bible, and false doctrines will always follow. Understand, “contemporary” is not just music, it also includes a whole package deal from the Devil. Let’s face it, many of our churches are not influencing the world as much as the world is influencing them. This should not be!
At this meeting, the music, dress standards and general atmosphere reminded me more of a worldly establishment than the sacred house of God. During the service they had a special group in to sing. As I sat in the back of the church with my preacher friends, a woman in the pew across the aisle from us stood up on her pew and started swaying and clapping her hands to the beat of the music. In the pew right behind her was a man that had hair longer than my wife. He sat gawking at the woman who was standing on her pew a foot or so in front of him. Did I mention that the slit in her skirt went almost to her waist? (Maybe she thought she needed this to help her climb up on her pew faster.) When we left I stopped and shook this man’s hand and asked him if he was a member of this church. The man looked at me and said “no but I sure would like to become a part of this.” I wonder why? The truth is that this man did not want anything to do with God but rather the worldly music and the worldly dress and all the flesh that made him feel right at home in his natural environment.
The Bible says in Ephesians 4:24 “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” The new man is after whom? God! The new man is created in what? Righteousness and true holiness! I fear that we are building our churches after social clubs instead of churches. Reader, don’t get mad at your preacher when he preaches standards and holiness. My flesh, unfortunately, has tasted too much of the world. I know first hand what it looks like, sounds like, and acts like. Now that I am saved I need God’s way, not man’s way! I want to encourage you to COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE YE SEPARATE. Let’s build our churches after God not after the World!
Dr. Matt Jarrell,
Pastor, Old Paths Baptist Church, York, PA.
