I agree. It's a certain kind of person who begins to DEEPLY question the status quo.

When I finally "came out" about UR my pastor and I sat nose to nose for several hours having an INTENSE discussion about it - and though not agreeing with me he was stunned that I even had thought all these things through and that I had so many good scriptural points and reasons to question.

In his many years of pastoring I don't think anyone had brought these questions up (against ET) so strongly/confidently. Then (wouldn't you know it) he was so taken aback that ET became a hot topic for awhile (just like it is here). Obviously my case was good enough to shake him up a bit. A few picked up on it (received an understanding of UR) and most rejected it and I ultimately resigned as I could not agree with the churches statement of faith concerning ET.

It's like kicking a covered smoldering fire. All the questions linger just beneath the surface and when someone stirs the pot all "hell" breaks loose.
