Intimidating meaning in tagalog
The IFB churches I experienced fell on the more conservative side of the above mentioned continuum.
They taught that the KJV is the only acceptable version for the Christian to use, it was the closest translation to the original manuscripts, all other versions of the Bible presented mistakes at best and heresy at worst, it was a sin to read versions of the Bible other than the KJV and because of the aforementioned one couldn’t truly be saved unless he/she got the gospel message from the KJV.

But that two-course series petitioners had deemed actively harmful due to its focus on white male poets.
The current class has 20 students, which is a larger seminar-style course compared to many other Yale courses, which are capped at 15 or 18.
