People who adhere to particular doctrines, denominations, preacher's are not fundamentalists. Fundamentalists adhere to the Bible. If you follow the Bible's teachings word for word then there isn't currently a denomination you can belong to that I have found.

As for forgetting more about the Bible than I will ever know, that is a sad state to be in. Knowing the Bible involves a great deal more than just reading and studying the words on the pages. The word IS God and thus you can only truly know the word if you personally know God.
The PhD in Theology means he has been forced, by requirements of the program to think about religions and beliefs in abstract ways. It brings a completely different level of insight than you cannot begin to understand without having undergone similar analysis. That is not to denigrate your understanding, simply to say it is not of the same depth.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

You can't "learn" about true religion. It has to be practiced. Study it all you want it doesn't mean anything.

Yeah, I knew a kid in high school who got hooked on drugs in Viet Nam. I asked him what the fuck? Didn't he learn about drugs with the rest of us? He told me you can't "learn" about heroin. It has to be used. Study heroin all you want, it doesn't mean anything. Get hooked and you gain the only true understanding of the use of heroin.

Truer words were never spoken. I have done drugs but I can't understand why other people become users. I hated the experiences. They tell me that you have to get hooked to truly understand it. I agree. Drugs are very Equal to religion.

drugs are fun in their own time but the mental ability to walk away is what's set people apart, you walked away because they scared you and have in some scarred you for life..........
