I guess you're saying that he believes in segregation along the lines of the "elect" versus "everybody else"?

Fundamentalist Christians - a small, late entry to the sub-sects of Christianity, originating in the US of A in the late 19th and early 20th century - believe one can say those words and be a totally crappy human being for the rest of their lives and still get a ringside seat in heaven right beside Jaysus upon expelling their last, foul breath.
I never met anyone who believes saying those words does anything.

Not sure you are in position to insult others and call them ignorant when you just demonstrated your own ignorance.

Okay, so SumTingy, how do you know you're elect? And, while you're at it, how do you know I'm not?

He and you are really no different than the suicide bomber whose eyes glaze over thinking about his 72 virgins just before he pushes the button. What makes you think you are anymore aware of your god than he of his?

It's his way or no way which causes the separation and division among believers.

But it has everything to do with being a fundamentalist.

I have. And I'm pretty sure you're forgetting about a few.

I'm quite sure I'm in the position to insult fundies. And you just demonstrated you are one. Not that there was any doubt.

You tried to explain what you thought "fundamentalists" believe, and if you are correct, then I could not possibly be one. I do not believe what you described, and nor have I ever met anyone who does.

I do not know whose views you think you are explaining, but they sure aren't mine, the evangelical community view, or mainline Christian, nor liberal Christians.

You are only making yourself look foolish trying to insult others when you have no idea what you are talking about.
