A ‘True Fundamentalist’

April 2, 2007

Dear Readers,
I have been labeled a ‘true fundamentalist’ by Simen of import Mind.Reason.

Simen mocked me and laughed at me in his post, but who cares. I am quite honored to be considered a ‘true fundamentalist.’ That means I am truly living the faith, and others know where I stand.

Thank you very much Simen.

  3. I see what you are saying, but wasn’t Simen correct, in fact? Isn’t equating God and reason like comparing apples to oranges, since (in this context) “God” refers to a source of knowledge, and “reason” refers to a specific method of obtaining knowledge?

    But using God all the time is the hard part.

  5. Now THAT’s a title that makes me want to put your blog in my favorites list. *pause* There, now. Nicely placed four names below the Rebelution. πŸ˜‰

    By God’s grace a “true fundamentalist” with you,

  6. Thank you very much Abigail.
    I’m honored to be on your favorites list.

  7. Ha, ha—yes, very great honor. πŸ˜‰

  8. […] Brian Purkiss didn’t get it, and still doesn’t. In fact, he’s proud to be called a true fundamentalist. Oh, well, can’t get along with everyone, can you? Oh, and I think this post has been the […]
