Use whatever descriptors you need to in order to convey your worldview.

That is your assumed defintion of it. Mine is one who is obsessed with what they think the bible says and is and puts it on par with the one it testifies of.

It's a handy word and I never expected anyone using it to stop using it.

Yes it is to identify hardliners who are not able to reason beyond their own beliefs systems.

Right. And of course you're nothing like that.
And why do you need to identify other posters in the first place?

Speaking as a former fundamentalist, we all carry labels and give each other labels(even you,deny it as much as you want but you do ) whether we like it or not. The moment you say i am or he is, you have created a label. Just be honest with yourseld rather than pretending to yourself you are neither one way or the other.

That's the thing. We do not have a set definition of what exactly a fundamentalist is.

Being somewhat conservative does not make one a fundamentalist.

I worked with a couple of ladies who wore long dresses every day and no makeup. They knew the Bible backward and forwards and even went on some type of year long Biblical bread diet, but they were not fundamentalist; though they wouldn't have minded the label because to them and a few others it would have meant they were strictly following The Word.
Christians are liberals because most say no one is able to maintain all of the O.T. Laws, which is what a fundamentalist would do.

The fundamental of Christianity is that Christ came to liberate the Jews, so no Christianity does not believe in the observance of the O.T laws, Christianity may have started off liberal, ie Christ liberating the Jews, but it has changed and developed over time to various sects, denominations where everyone says they are the true believers and others are not. You do not just have Jesus words about the liberation from the O.T but also Paulís. A fundamentalist Christian is a term that developed in reaction to a more liberal interpretation of the scriptures

From wiki :-


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chri...fundamentalism

Christian fundamentalism
Christian fundamentalism began in the late 19th and early 20th centuries among British and American Protestants[1][2] as a reaction to theological liberalism and cultural modernism. Fundamentalists argued that 19th-century modernist theologians had misinterpreted or rejected certain doctrines, especially biblical inerrancy, that they viewed as the fundamentals of the Christian faith.[3] Fundamentalists are almost always described as having a literal interpretation of the Bible. A few scholars regard Catholics who reject modern theology in favor of more traditional doctrines as fundamentalists.[4] Scholars debate how much the terms "evangelical" and "fundamentalist" are synonymous.[5] In keeping with traditional Christian doctrines concerning biblical interpretation, the role Jesus plays in the Bible, and the role of the church in society, fundamentalists usually believe in a core of Christian beliefs that include the historical accuracy of the Bible and all its events as well as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.[6]

Interpretations of Christian fundamentalism have changed over time.[7] Fundamentalism as a movement manifested in various denominations with various theologies, rather than a single denomination or systematic theology. It became active in the 1910s after the release of The Fundamentals, a twelve-volume set of essays, apologetic and polemic, written by conservative Protestant theologians to defend what they saw as Protestant orthodoxy. The movement became more organized in the 1920s within U.S. Protestant churches, especially Baptist and Presbyterian ones.......

That pretty much sums up what we hear on this forum from fundamentalists, doesn't it? There's no light, no humor, no compassion. It's a very dark and judgmental way of thinking with nothing positive about it at all--except, of course, for those who have declared themselves the special chosen ones.
That's the problem with labels. It brings on stereotypes like yours. Have you actually spent time in a fundamental church, have you seen our ministry work? We do things like help people in prison, recovering drug addicts, help single or abused moms get back on their feet, home groups where you can have a close core of people that will pray and care about you. We don't spend every Sunday blasting about sinners from the pulpit.

I can say the same thing about atheists. All I've seen is extreme arrogance and rudeness from their camp.
