Episode 38: The Culty World Of The IFB Colleges: Will Hess Part One

Diana WinklerChristianity, Physical Violence, spiritual abuse

Is your church a cult? My guest Will Hess wholeheartedly agrees that The Fundamental Baptist Church (a.k.a The IFB) he was raised in was a cult. He will share the story of how he suffered abuse from within his own family, as well as in his church. In this two part interview, here are the topics we covered this week:

Being raised in an IFB environment, but being abused at home in secret.

The legalistic culture if the IFB, the man made rules and twisting of the Scriptures.

Being bullied by the youth group leaders and college leadership.

The severe dating standards of the college. The inconsistent criteria for “approved workplaces”.

How he met his Korean wife and fought against the racism directed at them.

Come listen to Will’s powerful story!

BIO: A pastor and an apologetics nerd. Will wanted to start this podcast because of the Church Splits he had both witnessed and experienced. Having experienced first-hand division in the church over topics and issues where Biblical truth was pushed aside for opinions, Will saw a need to show Christians how to use the Bible not only to find truth, but to create unity in the Church. Will loves long-form podcasts and sees Christians craving for deep discussions on topics, pushing past the surface level arguments to truly discern what is the truth and why. What started as just a fun little hobby has turned into a ministry that Will pours his heart into.
