My Dad sold Todco aluminum sliding doors.

It always causes me to ponder why many Christians are so uncomfortable discussing differing views and beliefs in the church. I ts like they are saying, "my minds made up, don't confuse me with any facts". This hardening of the worldviews really hinders personal growth, I think.

Even if you are not convinced by another thought, you are helped by the discussion and can help others who are thinking things through. I have lived long enough and with enough different Christian groups to know you can find a proof text for just about any idea you desire to promote, like the fellow on the web yesterday who said Jesus would return with a AK 47 to mow down his enemies.

Thus the teacher and the learner always face a certian degree of risk in questioning fundamentals of the faith. A fundamentalist mindset is dangerous in any faith for it foments enemies, pride, and self deception.
