It seems to me to be a problem everywhere but especially in rural areas that any serious reasoning or education is dismissed off hand by pastors and church members. It is my view that these people remain isolated and have no interest in education or life beyond their own little world. Education and serious reason gets quickly dismissed by a number of various reasons. Do you see this in churches today and how do you personally see this expressed? Note* Do not turn this into a cal- non cal debate or about any specific doctrine.
