Thank you so much for your post and for sharing. I also attended a Southern Baptist Church and experienced the opposite of what you witnessed. I had a church that revered the Old Testament because of its ability to confirm the divinity of Christ. Despite this difference, I was also not exposed to the theological terms Dr. McDermott describes in my upbringing. I think, like you believed in your own church, that most churches use laymen terms in sermons and around their congregations to connect us to the Bible.
