1. They are humble and respectful and courteous and even funny (the ones I've met).
5. They know that the Bible calls for some kind of separation from the world.
6. They have backbone and are not prone to compromise principle.
7. They put obedience to Jesus above the approval of man (even though they fall short, like others).
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Fundamentalists always pray in private . . . Do they even read this book?
Their "social action" is helping the person next door (like Jesus), which doesn't usually get written up in the newspaper.
They tend to raise law-abiding, chaste children, in spite of the fact that Barna says evangelical kids in general don't have any better track record than non-Christians.
They resist trendiness.
13. They don’t think too much is gained by sounding hip.
16. They are not breathless about being accepted in the scholarly guild.
