A BoN checks in[edit]

Whoever wrote this article is an idiot and I hope God deals with your heart, thats if your even His child. Nevertheless, God identifies people into four catagories according to Proverbs, the wise, the simple, the scorner and the fool. I haven't quit pinpointed what catagory the author who wrote about independent baptist but my guess they are either a scorner or a fool. — Unsigned, by: 76.194.220.146 / talk

Many independent Baptists are Calvinists. In Calvinism, you do not "let Jesus Christ into your heart;" Jesus marches in without so much as a by-your-leave. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 05:15, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

What category are the rational folks in, BoN 76? 74.89.192.173 (talk) 18:03, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

I agree with that first BoN person, and most IFBs are NOT calvinists. The main contributors to this article, who think IFBs admire mass shootings, have to live in the freaking mountains somewhere because the people they are describing are more commonly known as "hillbillies". 71.208.254.107 (talk) 13:04, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

@71.208.254.107 That's very interesting, given that the original post made absolutely no points and instead relied appeals to emotion, Ad hominem attacks, and listing "God's" categorization system (which I might add is rather simplistic and vague). In short the original post was nothing more than the whining of a child unable to explain what they disliked about this article, and why. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 13:19, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
