God Is "Hyper-Fundamental"
Evangelicals are afraid of being considered hyper-fundamental. Hyper anything sounds bad to most today. When Isaiah got into the the throne room of God (Isaiah 6), did he think that God would not take absolutely seriously everything that He said? Of course not. For instance, is it bad to be "hyper-biblical"? Of course not. Is God tolerant of anything but strict adherence to what He said? No. We're tolerant of that. He isn't. People who are not tolerant are considered to be "hyper." They want to be like God wants them to be, but evangelicals want them to calm down. Don't. Listen to God.
