Stop Picking On Me - Or Things I Like About Fundamentalism

Monday, August 20, 2007

This is a couple of weeks old, but Ellis Murphree over at "As For Me And My House" recently posted a short article entitled, "Stop Picking on Me" that is a refreshing read. In the midst of all the clamourng and complaining about Fundamentalism, Ellis finds and discusses 9 things he appreciates about Fundamentalism.

Those nine things include things such as "Solid, biblical teaching", "Quality music", and "Formal worship services" - things that I often hear are not present in Fundamentalism.

I think Ellis hits the nail on the head with this post and his experience in Fundamentalism lines up much closer to what I have experienced than some of the characitures of Fundamentalism that you typically read on the internet.

Go over and check out the entire article - Stop Picking On Me.

In all honesty, Frank, the entire motivation behind the article was so that I could use the picture that I posted along with it... :)

Actually, there are a number of other things that I didn't include that I might address at a future time. We have our weaknesses in Fundamentalism (as does everybody else) - I think sometimes we spend too much time focusing on the bad rather than the good.

I was wondering if the picture was a self-photograph :).

I agree with you on the inordinate focus on the negative - that is part of why your post was such a refreshing change. I don't think any of us are so blind as to think that we don't have weaknesses, but sometimes it seems like the weaknesses are all that anyone can see or wants to talk about.

Good post - and thank you.
