This topic is primarily intended for Jar and myself to engage in a discussion concerning some of the issues brought up by him and I before here at EvC.
The C.O.I. is an abbreviation for a phrase coined by Jar: The Christian Cult Of Ignorance.
I wanted to discuss Protestant Dogma, church tradition, and various beliefs within Christianity in general.
I want this topic to focus on what it means to be ignorant within the contexts of belief, whether there is dishonesty involved in Fundamentalist Protestantism, and whether or not logic should trump blind faith when it comes to believing 7 incredible things before Breakfast!
Lets try and limit our discussion to what the Bible says, Protestant dogmas started by John Milton and other traditional charismatic catch phrases and buzz words. Philosophy can be freely added, within the context of monotheism.
Also my first questions for Jar: What is the definition of willful ignorance within the context of
Who defines which people or church belief statements should be grouped in the category of ignorance? Why do you believe that your belief paradigm offers a more honest portrayal of Christian Belief?
