Pros and Cons

connexions » Blog Archive » Zealots and Corpses

Kim over at “connexions”: has an interesting article that I’d like to expand a bit upon by asking a few simple questions (though the answers may prove to be far from simple):

If you had to choose between associating with liberal or fundamentalist/conservative Christians, which group would you choose and why?

For extra credit:

What do liberal Christians tend to believe? What do fundamentalist Christians tend to believe? And what are the pros and the cons – whether it be behavior, belief, or practice – of each group?

I hear a lot of discussion about liberal versus fundamentalist Christians with very little description of what details actually distinguish the two groups from one another. So I’d like to explore this topic a little bit, get a little bit of a feel for what people’s conceptions are when they think of each group.

Ready. Set. Go!

  1. Thanks for the info on RSS.

    I am going to have to think about those questions before I make any sort of attempt to answer them. They’re good questions though!

  2. There was a time when I would have wanted to hang out with the liberal Christians because they were “nice”. Then I went through a spell when I would have wanted to hang with the conservatives because they were “right”.

    Now I pretty much skip both extremes and try to hang out with more non-Christians because they are real. Besides, those are mostly the folks I see Jesus spending time with in the Bible.

Have anything to add to the conversation?
