Are there any Protestant denominations that are neither this
They seem to be running out.
Come off it. The bibble is so vague on pretty much everything anyone can make their own religion off it.
>Which Presbyterian? If you've actually spent any time looking into this then you know that even within individual denominations there are separate bodies. Such is the beauty/insanity of Reformed theology.
PCUSA is what I was thinking of. Which one were you thinking of?
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Yes, very vague.
>Which one were you thinking of?
Ian Paisley was a Free Presbyterian but in the States the PCA is pretty conservative.
Please define "fundamentalist" and then explain why it is a bad thing to be one.
>why it is a bad thing
>a movement in 20th century Protestantism emphasizing the literally interpreted Bible as fundamental to Christian life and teaching
Sola Scriptura is not a 20th century development...
If this is how you define "fundamentalism" all Reformed churches will fall into this category.
No, it means that the Bible is fundamental to Christian life and teaching as per the definition you linked.

There is no direct quote from God that says being gay is a bad thing. They are direct quotes from prophets, who may have lied as well. Read the bible, would God punish someone for being born with something they can't control
When we read the Bible we need to always take into account factors such as "genre." The opening chapters of Genesis are poetry and should be read as such, however this does not mean they do not convey the truth.
You should literally interpret poetry as poetry and just like you should literally interpret history as history.
Genesis is poetry whereas Chronicles is history.
The entire field of hermeneutics is devoted to the proper method of scriptural interpretation.
I never said they didn't. I'm saying the PCA is fundamentalist, they don't take into account genre, they take it all as documentary.
And as per OP, Protestant denominations tend to be either that, or they're like the video.
yes, because it's against nature. some people are born alcoholics, others psychopaths, should we let them run amok because they "can't help it", which is complete pap, btw? of course not.
