Wrong interwiki links (language links)[edit]

Bottom left, several robots insert a link to a Lithuanian version of this page. However, that Lithuanian page refers to Business Men's Fellowship (BMF), not to FGBMFI. So far, I did not manage to block these robots selectively in such a way that other interwiki links may still be automatically inserted. HHahn (talk) 22:05, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

In the meantime, I found a solution using a {{bots|deny=...}} template, specifying all bots that have added this incorrect link so far. I did not manage, however, to find a similar solution based of bot types or so. HHahn (talk) 21:13, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Since Business Mens Fellowship is the name of a group that at one time broke away from FGBMF, perhaps the desire of the Lithuanins to see reconciliation is being expressed in this situation ricgal —Preceding undated comment added 02:08, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

I have no doubt this article is notable. The FGBMFI have been a major force within Pentecostalism, and you will find numerous published reliable secondary references to them. Colin MacLaurin (talk) 07:00, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Neutrality[edit]

I have no doubt that although this article emphasizes the pentecostal aspect and the evangelistic aspect, without going into detail, it is not really slanted unfairly. The information briefly citing the dispute after Demos Shakarian's death is needed. Many organizations go through such controversies. I find the article fair and balanced, albeit rather short. ricgal (talk) 03:25, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

I have further information on the dispute, and the organizations that have departed from the Full Gospel business Men's Fellowship International include the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship in Canada, the Full Gospel Businessmen UK and Ireland, and the national organization in Nigeria, including all but one or two chapters. ricgal (talk) 05:47, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
