comment How does a biblical literalist interpret the tale of David and Goliath?
And maybe he just forgot. He's a king with a war going on. He probably has better things to do than keep tabs on the lineage of his staff - even his favorite staff. If the text said something like "Saul had never known who David's father was before that", then we'd have a discrepancy. As it is, it's a big stretch to label it as such.

Can you provide verse and translation references? I read quickly through 1 Samuel 17, and couldn't find any hint of the discrepancy you mentioned.

comment Nature of salvation in the Old Testament
@SanJacinto, Perhaps a question along the lines of: "Was salvation eternally secure in the Old Testament?" would be better, and that's the direction I originally thought this question was going when I read the beginning of it.

@DavidStratton, "so serious about holding fast to tradition that we refuse to budge on anything" - Perhaps that, then, is the distinguishing feature.

comment What is fundamentalism?
@SanJacinto, John Piper seems to be acknowledging that there are many people more liberal than he who call him a fundamentalist, but he seems to hold that is not indeed a fundamentalist by his standard. I'm specifically interested in John Piper, because I would attribute to him the characteristics I'd normally associate with fundamentalists, and I'd like to understand which characteristics about fundamentalists he does not hold. In other words, what is it about fundamentalists that keeps Piper from considering himself one?

comment What is fundamentalism?
Thanks. I'm still a little confused about the distinction, because I'm pretty sure that all of the bullets you listed describe John Piper as well (not sure about the hymns). Is there another distinguishing feature, or alternate definition that he may be using?
