I grew up in a fundamentalist movement where very uneducated people screamed and hollered in condemnation of things- and they were very ignorant biblically, historically, etc... concerning those things. I came to do the same. And when many of those "heroes" of mine started falling and letting me down, one day I sat down and said, "This stuff I have been led to believe by these people- does it really hold water?" I went to the Scripture and these issues began to fail the test of bible scrutiny one right after the other- they fell like flies. I felt deceived. I came to the conclusion that if you are going to beat a pulpit in condemnation of something you better DARN WELL know a whole LOT about it. To not be educated in an area and speak SO AUTHORITATIVELY on it is evil to me now. This comes off in my posting. This is why I went to back to Bible college and then seminary. I am being a bit vulnerable here because I am sharing information that you could use against me in future debates. But I figured we all actually spend a lot of time together, so it may kind of be like we ought to do this. Even if my doing so turns and bites me on the butt, I don't think it is enough to bite hard, so I risked it.
