Personal testimony is the hallmark of Protestantism.
And it is the hallmark of Protestantism because Protestants believe in the personal interpretation of the Bible.
And this site is full to overflowing with personal testimony. Personal testimony is the lingua franca of this site.
Unfortunately personal testimony is at best anecdotal and at worst delusional.
But this is what they have learnt in the USA and what they foist on us as though it were the most natural thing in the world.
And it is the most natural thing in the world for them, for they breathe it day in and day out, until it seems to be the natural order of things - and even part of the moral order.
But I'm strangling, I am choking on personal testimony.
