About This Site Thank you for visiting. I was a member of a spiritually abusive Independent Fundamental Baptist Church for a little over 25 years. The focus of this site, therefore, is the issue of spiritual abuse and deception in the IFB churches. This site also has a secondary emphasis on other Christian churches, but will mostly focus on the IFB Denomination. Like others who have similar sites, the reason for concentrating on the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination is simply due to personal experience. Most Baptist churches are very similar to the IFB.
We would like to emphasize eight specific reasons why dating can be a positive experience in your life to help you navigate the waters of maturity and maybe, some day, even marriage. Dating can be fun! It can be a source of enjoyment and recreation. This is an end in itself because couples want to relax and experience a form of entertainment together.
Consider the FRUIT of Pastor Jack Hyles’ 55 years of ministry! Look at all the thousands of good things Dr. Hyles has done for people and the Lord. Dr. Jack Hyles spent years of ministry building lives, starting the Bus Ministry and changing the world for God.
The former pastor of First Baptist Church of Hammond has confessed to having sex with a member of the church when she was 16, board members told the congregation Wednesday night. The Board of Deacons addressed the church Wednesday to explain their sudden decision to fire pastor Jack Schaap, who had led the church for the past 11 years. The church plans to fully cooperate with an FBI investigation into allegations that multiple sexual encounters involving the same girl took place across state lines.
Schaap’s affair was outed accidentally, a former church member told CBS Chicago. Eddie Wilson, director of public relations for the church, told the Chicago Sun-Times that adultery is grounds for dismissal in the church’s bylaws. He told the newspaper that Schaap and his wife are “trying to reconcile their marriage,” and said that the church will now “begin the process of calling a new pastor.
Schaap has made a career writing advice books about dating. The First Baptist Church of Hammond faced a similar scandal in when a deacon was convicted of molesting a 7-year-old girl in her Sunday school class.
This site experienced a surge of traffic during the time the show aired which was a confirmation to me that this is really a hot issue and a much needed topic of exploration and exposure. Tina Anderson and I have had contact in the past and I would urge all of you to head on over to her site and at least read about her experiences. This is a fantastic opportunity to shed light on the IFB and their abusive teachings.
More recently, former megachurch pastor Jack Schaap was convicted to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a teenage girl at his church and transporting her across state lines.
Promotion[ edit ] In the 19th century, many of America’s cities had a designated, legally protected area of prostitution , and increased urbanization as well as greater numbers of young women entering the workforce led to greater flexibility in courtship without supervision. It is in this changing social sphere that concern over “white slavery” began. This term referred to women being kidnapped for the purposes of prostitution. The second significant action at the local level was to close the brothels and the red light districts.
From to , city after city changed previously tolerant approaches and forced the closing of their brothels. Opposition to openly practiced prostitution had been growing steadily throughout the last decades of the 19th century.
Edit Module Let Us Prey: Big Trouble at First Baptist Church A string of assaults and sexual crimes committed by pastors across the country have one thing in common: The perpetrators have ties to the megachurch in Hammond, Indiana. By Bryan Smith Published Dec. Or would have, had Schaap not habitually railed against the evils of rock music. As with most of his sermons at the northwest Indiana megachurch—the 14th largest in the country and the biggest Independent Baptist house of worship in the nation—the message struck as bluntly as a pounded nail:

Clarence Sexton of Crown College, and Jack Schaap of First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, have teamed up to fabricate an ecumenical fellowship on the model of the International Missions Conference of Edinburgh in and Harold Okinga’s ecumenical hybrid at Fuller Seminay.
In the eight years that Dr. Schaap has been its pastor, the First Baptist Church of Hammond has seen amazing growth, with the average weekly attendance more than doubling. This growth caused the need for a new auditorium; So in March of , the First Baptist Church moved into a new seat auditorium and, throughout that same year, saw over 25, converts baptized.
A few years ago, the first mission team was sent from the First Baptist Church to an oppressive country. A second mission team was sent to Ghana, West Africa, in November of This team is averaging each Sunday at the First Baptist Church of Kumasi and has seen , people saved and 3, baptized. Hyles-Anderson College of West Africa was founded there in January of and will host its first graduation in September In May of , a third mission team was sent to Bangkok, Thailand.
Since their arrival they have seen 7, people saved and baptized.

First, a baby girl named Kristi was born to Marlene and her husband, Ken Schaap.
Five years later, the doctor—feeling that having another child was too dangerous for both the baby and his mother—scolded Marlene for becoming pregnant again.
By now many news outlets have reported on Pastor Jack Schaap of First Baptist Church of Hammond Indiana, who has plead guilty to sexual relations with a year old girl who attended his church. The affair, which was uncovered at the end of July, rocked the 15, member church and sent shockwaves through the Christian news world. The fact of the matter is that Jack Schaap should have never been in a position to have this inappropriate sexually abusive relationship with this young girl in the first place.
As this article will show, for years, Schaap has held to unbiblical, heretical and perverted doctrines that he has preached from the pulpit of his own church. Doctrines so evil that based on Biblical standards, should have removed him years ago.
Of course men like Jack Hyles, David Hyles, Jack Schaap, Ray A. Stanford, and the wicked sodomites from gaychristiancom would teach such a doctrine. The truth hurts doesn’t it so don’t write about Schaap without first looking at the formication committed by these same ministers of Satan.
As I said to him, he has been put on the front lines by Schaap armed with a pea shooter while Schaap hides in his office. Ballenger, and I cried with them. I asked him how he would feel toward Schaap if it was his daughter. He had no answer. He has thus far failed to do so. Maybe it is a new day at FBC Hammond. Maybe new standards are in place. Maybe they really are buying background check forms in bulk. Until they step up and take responsibility for the thousands of families driven from their faith by the abuse and rotten example of this cultish organization, however, they will get no respect from me.
Fortunately, my husband and I have never been exposed to this nonsense. Our marriage is based on love and mutual respect, and we make it a priority to ‘out-serve’ one another. Isn’t that what Jesus modeled for us? As I have shared in a previous post, we will mark our silver wedding anniversary next year, and our marriage keeps getting better and better! Truly, married couples either grow together or grow apart, as appears to have happened with Jack and Cindy Schaap.
She is the creator and host of “Dating with Purpose,” a popular series and movement that promotes pursuing healthy relationships with God at the center. Ashley is happily married to Carrington Brown, her strongest advocate and partner in business and together they have a beautiful daughter.
Jack Schaap , his son-in-law — see note at end of this report. He claimed to have traveled over , miles a year preaching in various conferences, and to have preached over 50, sermons throughout his ministry. Why is it that people into self-aggrandizement always fail to do the math before advertising their “accomplishments”? As of the time of Hyles death, Schaap claimed to have been a member of FBCH for 24 years and on the staff of HAC for the last 20 years, yet had found the time to preach more than 26, sermons, another phenomenal three sermons a day!
Hyles was perhaps best known for engineering the massive growth in Sunday school and church attendance at FBCH through the development of a bus ministry. Hyles once claimed to be personally responsible for leading over , souls to Christ! Yet, one must ask, where are the Bible-believing churches spawned in the Chicagoland area from the massive number of conversions claimed by Hyles over the last plus years?
Hyles also claimed that Hyles-Anderson College has “over graduates now pastoring churches all over the world, and more than 1, graduates serving God full-time. Hyles had also become known for his alleged immorality, specifically his behavior with his secretary the wife of a deacon in the church , and for his explicit sexual references from the pulpit, in counseling, and through FBCH’s schools grade school, high school, and Hyles-Anderson Bible College.
Much of his teaching must be labeled as unadulterated false doctrine, and he encouraged an almost cult-like mentality among FBCH’s members. There were references to secret meetings with him in different places” The Wizard of God: Victor Nischik also writes, “
