    I believe there has been research done if you are curious enough to search for it.

    [–] Can a “born again Christian” become unborn or lose their salvation? tanhan27 3 points ago in Reformed

    Because of your inspiration, I did ask the question although I phrased it in a way that would be more than just a yes/no. I'm interested in seeing how people answer.

    Maybe its just the Baptists I have met then. If ever I knew a Christian who refused to drink on the account of drinking being a sin, that person was usually a Baptist.

    [–] How do people in the US define 'evangelical'? tanhan27 3 points ago in Reformed

    I self identify as Evangelical. My definition of an Evangelical is someone who:

    1. Hold a very high view of scripture - reads the Bible a lot and quotes it.

    2. Considers themselves as having a personal relationship with Jesus

    3. Emphasizes evangelism - the need to spread the gospel

    4. Emphasizes the need for forgivenss of sins and repentance for salvation

    5. Believes in heaven and hell and the necessity of Jesus's Grace for salvation

    6. Not Catholic/Anglican - with some exceptions.(i.e. NT Wright)

    [–] Is American church culture dominated by extrovert culture? tanhan27 3 points ago in Reformed

    I think generally extroverts have a harder time understanding introverts than vice versa. The feeling I get is that some times extroverts view introversion as a weakness or something to be corrected. When finding people for church leadership they are looking for a "people person" which basically means they don't want an introvert.

    How would I change it? I have no solutions. I don't know how to change a church.

    [–] Is American church culture dominated by extrovert culture? tanhan27 1 points ago in Reformed

    Yes. I think the solution is hiring more introverts in church leadership decision making roles.

    I am in solidarity with the protesters. I wish there was that level of awareness and organization in the US. To put it in Noam Chomsky terms, our media is better at manufacturing consent. Republicans hand out a massive tax cut with no expiration date that benefits the wealthy and a small tax cut to the middle class that expires and no benefit to the poor and yet the poor celebrate it as a victory even though the resulting increase in the deficit with surely be used as an excuse to cut social programs which benefit the masses.

    The wealth gap widens in America and the poor rejoice. And any negative effects are blamed on immigrants and China, not on the government policy that favors the 1% at the expense of the 99%

    Physically distinct? Yes for the most part except in thoss rare cases of intersex people, men and women have distinct sex organs.

    Psychologically? I think it's much more of a spectrum. The average man and average woman have a lot of psychological differences but there are also plenty of outliers that overlap. I'm not even talking about lgtb stuff here I'm talking about women who do exceptionally well in mathematics despite the average male being better at math than the average female(correct me if I am wrong). I'm talking about men who are exceptionally good at multitasking despite the fact that the average male is worse at multitasking than the average female.

    Yes it is. Humans > animals.

    Although I think moving towards veganism is a positive direction for humanity. One day the lion will lay with the lamb

    One thing I love about living in a conservative state is that most of the people you meet are Christians and even those who are not Christian are very tolerant of Christianity. I went home to visit my parents in Canada and wore a T-shirt from my church and I got all kinds of weird looks. Practicing Christians much rarer in Canada and looked at as weird. At my old construction job in Canada they used to mock me

    I'm quite politically progressive(the exception being abortion). I moved from a very progressive area to a very conservative one. I htought I would hate it, but I don't. The longer I am here the more I like it. The things I miss the most are having more public parks and places to hike.
