Hyper-Fundamentalism


Thanks today to head Pyromaniac Phil Johnson for putting us aware of a new anthology with a contribution by Kevin Bauder. In his book, he discusses eight characteristics of hyper-fundamentalism. In this instance, we're talking hyper-fundamentalism of the Christian variety.

Many people don't realize that there is a difference between Christian fundamentalism and evangelicalism. But there is. While conservative, Bible-believing evangelicals share many if not all of the core doctrinal positions of fundamentalists, most evangelicals do not go to some of the lengths many fundamentalists do in terms of "separation" and other legalistic requirements.

No doubt this will poke a stick in a hornet's nest, but sometimes it's worth doing precisely that.
