    T is for Three to Thrive

    Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night be sure to be in your place with a smile on your face. In this week's episode, Sam and David discuss the history of the popular IFB saying about church services. It seems as if pastors love to focus on these three services while ignoring the Biblical example of fellowshipping and breaking bread daily.

    Bonus: S is for Science

    Just because they can, David and Sam bring you another bonus episode for the letter "S." Out of all 31,102 verses in the Bible, the IFB only needs three to prove the Bible is a scientific book. Do you know all three?

That’s for heckin’ sure

This is one of my favorite podcasts. Sam and David are hilarious, and I love that they both came from different veins of the IFB so there’s a little something for all of us recovering fundies. ;) Always bring it to how we can apply what we’ve learned to our Christian lives in a practical, Biblical way too. I really do appreciate that they talk about the pros and cons of the IFB way of thinking, too.

One of my favorites

Sam and David are compelling and fun to listen to, but they address serious issues.
They are a young married couple who grew up in the Independent Fundamental Baptist environment. They speak to that experience with grace and humor, but aren’t hesitant to call out the (many) ways that movement has departed from scriptural standards.
A lot of this is “inside baseball” so it may go right over your head if you’ve never been around that world, but I’m sure that you’ll learn something and come away in a better mood regardless.

Very refreshing 💯

This podcast is a great take on all things IFB and how it really is in a lot of those type of churches! Sam and David really tackle a lot of the basics in a funny, (mostly) light-hearted way! It is very refreshing to hear about how I grew up in a way where it isn’t just a bashing of a “religious” view! Love it!
