Ways in which Fundamentalists are discriminated against


I’m often astounded when I hear Evangelicals call themselves Fundamentalist. They have no idea that in many ways, they are so NOT Fundamentalist, it’s crazy.

But what I see is the rabid anti-Fundamentalism sweeping Christianity – the same ideology the Lord decries in the letter to the Laodecian church in Revelation 3. “Be lukewarm, like us!” They cry. And many of them resort to calling Fundamentalists “Pharisees.” Good to know that not only are you Biblically ignorant and PROUD of it – but you’re also Anti-Semitic.

A Pharisee is an enemy of Jesus Christ. A Fundamentalist is not. Fundamentalists stand for the Christian faith, a literal belief in the Bible – and usually God’s Bible, not rejected and heretical texts which the unBelieving and unSaved “scholars” prefer.

So, let’s say you discover overnight, that the Bible is God’s word, inspired, inerrant, preserved. Now, there’s a lot of “Christians” who call the Bible “Inspired” the same way you’d call Mozart’s music “inspired”. When I say inspired, I mean, we believe God dictated the Bible to men who wrote it down.  Many “Christians” claim Fundamentalists don’t believe that anymore.

Huh.

No, that’s an article of faith that Fundamentalists will not let go of. When they say, “Luke wrote the book of Luke”, they’re saying “It might have errors because Luke wrote it, and Luke was a man.” I say instead, “God wrote it and gave Luke the words to write down. It has no errors – God wrote it.”

So, if you became a Fundamentalist, you’d find yourself having problems with a LOT of Christian materials. Commentaries that question God’s word. Bible dictionaries that try  to present the unSaved “Scholar’s” view of things – which usually is their wish or pet theory being passed off as truth to unsuspecting Christians. You’d have to reject a lot of Greek handbooks, because many of them ascribe to “Textual Criticism”, which is Atheism passing itself off as Christians. If you’re trying to tell me Mr. Aland or Mr. Metzger are saved, you’re going to have to cite some serious evidence, because based on their testimonies, I’m going to come out and say – no, they can’t be.

You’re going to have trouble with a lot of Sermon starter books, that have little “tidbits of the Greek” because they push – again – a heretical manuscript instead of God’s Bible. You’re going to end up rejecting most materials on Revelation because – let’s face it – most of them are written by persons who allegorize the Book of Revelation, or accept the heretical manuscripts instead of God’s Bible. I have a commentary on Revelation that seems really good, but I’m having to wade through a lot of “the scholars now say…”. I’m sorry Mr. Seiss, but had you any idea they were lying to you?

You’re going to have a lot of trouble with pre-printed Sunday School materials. I’ve found so many elementary doctrinal errors and “Scholars say” references, I don’t know what to do.

You’ll grit your teeth over the way people praise Billy Graham, ignoring his outright heresies. Yes, he used to be great. But once he started promoting Baptismal Regeneration, there’s a problem.

So… is this Hypocrisy? No. I don’t quote from heretical greek texts. I quote from God’s Bible. When I refer to the Greek, I refer to the Textus Receptus. When I look at “The hebrew”, I’m looking at the Hebrew Masoretic Txt, the Ben Chayim text. When I give my opinion on the Bible, it is “The Bible says…”

So, I’m not a “Pharisee.” I promote the Bible as the word of God, not the Talmud. I promote only one way to heaven through Jesus Christ, certainly not a trait associated with Pharisees.

So… what does that leave the people who question the word of God? Who promote other ways to be saved? Who refuse to disassociate with heretics and false teachers?

What does that imply about them?

Seminary graduate with a Ba. in Theology/Pastoral Studies, Happily married, Independent Baptist. I can't keep silent about what I see going on in Christianity any longer! Apostasy reigns around us, churches are sliding into worldiness, a whitewashed Gospel is preached everywhere... "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) So, I'm speaking out. ...Why aren't you???

  1. Being convinced that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, preserved Word of God is a work the Holy Spirit did early in my walk with the Lord. Singling out the TR as that preserved Word, He has accomplished of late, however He always led me away from the more egregiously wicked adaptations of God’s Holy Word, they were so confusing and contradicted biblical doctrine I had learned. Thank you for standing true to our God and His Word. Amen!

  2. Philip – your posts get better and better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    I have been entrusted with a Titus 2 ministry at my IFB church. Every Saturday morning, I teach a bunch of females of all ages, how to sew and dress modestly, etc. Yet AGAIN today – the demand was made – why aren’t boys and men allowed in the class???? Thankfully, my godly pastor, who is ecstatic that I teach this class, won’t allow the guys in either. But I have to wonder – do any of these sheeple even read their Bibles? Ever? There seems to be no discernment whatsoever. They get an idea in their heads, and there is no getting it out.

    1. I am despairing as of late in the hopes of getting Christians to read the Bible. I cannot think any longer of any new ways to get Christians to read their Bibles, short of saying, “If you say you’re a Christian and don’t read your Bible, then you’re mistaken in what you think you are.”

      1. I understand your despair all too well. As a lady in church, all I can do is tend to the witless females in my charge. They do not read, and when and if they do, it is not from desire but from the need to satisfy a teacher. I thank God every single day, several times a day, for my pastor and his wife. Such a blessing in this day and age. But as I have mentioned to you before – CCM is making a little toehold here and there. And once it is in, it is nigh impossible to get out.

        The two natures wrestling within are more and more giving way to the worldly, fleshly nature, rather than the new born one. I believe that is because the old nature is being fed like a sumo wrestler is. Force fed with everything from sports to porn, from every avenue available to the forces of darkness. Excess in abundance. Which, in turn, causes the sin nature to grow stronger.

        I have a question for you – what is your opinion of martial arts being taught to church members – mostly teenagers – as a self defense class? I know Galyene Goodrich has nothing good to say about it, since she was immersed in it for so long.
