Fundamentalists are Okay for Piper

John Piper has written up 20 reasons he refuses to take potshots at Christians who identify themselves as conservative fundamentalists (click here to read them all).

Here are my favorites:

1. They are humble and respectful and courteous and even funny (the ones I've met).

4. They believe that the Bible is true, all of it.

8. They believe in hell and are loving enough to warn people about it.

12. They resist trendiness.

15. They still sing hymns.

16. They are not breathless about being accepted in the scholarly guild. (my favorite)

20. Everybody to my left thinks I am one. And there are a lot of people to my left. (I too have this going on)
