TrueLife.org (A Very Specific Kind of Baptist) – Not Anymore!

Hey, dipsticks, it’s fine to do your research about a product before purchasing it or joining it… but you should align what is said in an 8 year old post w/ what reality looks like today. You should understand that people and things change and grow over time.

Take TrueLife.org for example, I use to go to school with the founder, Jesse Connors. He’s a great guy with a huge heart for the Lord. If you’re going to sit there and tell me that he hasn’t grown or changed in the last 10 years, since I’ve known him. I’ll tell you that I’m very concerned that you might not have grown or changed in the last 10 years. He recently approached me and asked me to review TrueLife.org again (this post was the original review). I am now removing that 8 year old and outdated review because I can no longer stand by the sentiment. And instead, I have to say that I am proud to see the changes that TrueLife.org has made and I fully endorse their commitment to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with our neighbors. Not that it should mean much to you, since I’m a heretic after all.

Godspeed astronauts!

Now, piss off.

  1. Why do you have to join in the first place? Why is there restricted access?

    • Heather,

      The survey is part of the vetting process when you try to enroll your church. Enrolling your church gets you a bunch of TrueLife materials and puts your church in their location database. This way visitors of TrueLife.org can search the site and find a local… doctrinally pure… church in their area.

      Jason,

      Yeah, that’s really why I wrote the post… hopefully to inspire some change.

      Thanks for commenting!

  2. I’m trackin with the litmus test if anything. Not sure there should even be restriction.

  3. Wow. I like the abortion/euthanasia question. I know orthodox believers (even SEBTS professors) who would say that abortion isn’t 100% always the wrong choice.

    I didn’t look at the site yet; can you watch the videos without being a member or whatever?

  4. Yeah, casual visitors can see everything. Registering is just for churches who want to want to be on their church finder.

  5. Lew,

    I checked out the “Locator” link at truelife.org. It says, “We will put you in touch with a church, and people who can answer your questions.” So, apparently, only those who can answer all of these question in the affirmative qualify as a church? And only they can answer people’s questions?

  6. Alan, that’s my biggest problem with the survey. What is more important, I fail to see the benefit in preventing a Christ following group from sharing the good news of Jesus because they do not share “our” understanding of baptism.

    Well, I signed up but never got any feedback about what our “business cards” would say. And for the life of me I can’t find any contact information or email address to write and ask “What’s up?” Anybody have any help?

  9. No idea Dan, have you tried the contact form? http://truelife.org/home/contact_form
