The evangelical impulse possesses people in the middle of the country, who offer advice as easily as a section of the paper. The rednecks, the hippies, all the demographics are so quick to tell you how you’re supposed to live, that I dismiss all such attempts without consideration. It’s incessant. In my experience, the more a person tries to fix you or guide you, the less they know about the world. Worldliness breeds ambiguity, not doctrine.
