Darrell, over at Stuff Fundies Like, posted some pages from:
…a West Coast Baptist College memo from 2001 (PDF) in which Paul Chappell attempts to quash feelings of unease in his staff about a dating policy that is put in place specifically to cater to racism. The page numbers in the pages that follow indicate that the material is from some kind of official handbook.
While Darrell focused on the racism found in the documents, I want to focus on the page that reveals the elevated status the pastor has in many (most) IFB churches. Here’s the page I found most interesting. I will make no comment about it. Regular readers of this blog already know my opinion about this issue.
As you can see, it is all about
God, the church, Jesus, the pastor.
