After 4 pages, I still have not yet read your definition of "born again fundamentalism". Is your definition of fundamentalism those Christians who
reject the new brand of "social religion" preached in so many churches today? This social religion is false for it is meant to tickle the ears of
people, to give them what they want to hear, to let them blend in WITH the world. Let's face it, these Christians want none of the persecutions and
testing that scripture makes clear will happen to all who seek to walk with God, which is to strengthen us. This "social religion" preaches a gospel
of tolerance, when Our Father demands obedience and faith. This "social religion" seeks to harmonise with other religions and their 'gods', yet in
doing so, utterly denies the true message of separation from this world and it's beliefs. God hasn't changed from the OT to the NT, He is still the
same just and merciful God that is Our Righteousness.
The term fundamental Christian is used today to degrade those who follow Jesus Christ, His teachings and the bible as a whole as being the words of
God. But yet, if we look at the definition of fundamental;
FUNDAMENT'AL, a. Pertaining to the foundation or basis; serving for the foundation. Hence, essential; important; as a fundamental truth or principle;
a fundamental law; a fundamental sound or chord in music.
FUNDAMENT'AL, n. A leading or primary principle, rule, law or article, which serves as the ground work of a system; essential part;
So, OP, can you please clarify which part of "fundamental Christianity" do you disagree with? The essential truths as contained in scripture, the
fundamental laws, or the primary principles such as faith? Or is it that you reject what scripture tells you and prefer the new social religion
developed by those seeking to withhold salvation from your fellow brethren who have errantly placed their trust in man instead of God?
I think of the following goal of communism as entered into the 1963 US Congressional record;
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual
maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
Yes, many of our churches today preach man-made church doctrine, but this isn't "fundamentalism", it's no different than what the Pharisees were
doing - adding to the words of God and "making converts twice the children of hell." and I venture to guess that they never went away but rather
dove right into many of our churches.
