Yes TylerR - Fri, 12/22/2017 - 10:56am Cultures are different. In the Olympia, WA area, Christians are very touchy-feely. They want to emphasize love more than holiness. They're anxious to round the edges off a condemnation of sin, for fear it'll make them seem "mean." When you think back to seminary, and the discussions of "what is God's most fundamental attribute" (if there is such a thing!), these people would answer "love - times infinity." They're so anxious to emphasize love they downplay sin, rebellion, and the consequences. I didn't see that so much in the Midwest. Tyler is a pastor in Olympia, WA and works in State government. He's the author of the book What's It Mean to Be a Baptist?
