And it seems that for progressives

modern experience trumps tradition whereas traditionalists are the opposite. I trust what historic Christianity has to say over what I currently feel.

Taking the Bible Seriously....

To answer the question, yes, it seems you don't take the Bible seriously. You pick and chose. Christ upheld the Bible in Matthew 5:17--20. Furthermore, with Grace as the primary cornerstone it give the impression of a "get our of jail free card." Grace is there to offer forgiveness when we fail in our Christian walk not as permission to live lives contradictory to Scripture. Jesus lived a life of unconditional love while stressing forgiveness yet an instruction for the forgiven to turn from their life of sin to righteousness not to continue in that sin. Repentance is a precursor to forgiveness.

Everyone "picks and chooses"

Non-fundamentalists are simply honest enough to admit it. Fundamentalists, in contrast, never admit it, and try to pretend they don't in order to amass power and control.
