If you follow the bible, you are labeled a Fundie, Fundamentalist, Uppity Christian, etc.

If you dont take the bible seriously and try to live on both sides of the fence, then you are called a Hypocrite SMH.


These are just examples Ive seen with at work, in my life and other believers life:
If you stay away from drama at the office, they look at you like you think you are better than them, but if they try you an you tell them off, the 1st response is, see thats why I dont go to church now, because Christians are hypocrites, when that Christian puts them in their place after a while. Yet those same people will go to the mall, store, their job and everywhere else that has hypocrites on a daily basis.

If you dont drink, then someone will make it their mission to get you drunk and call you sheltered because you dont drink and once they do, Christians shouldnt be drinking.

Waiting for marriage until you have sex, will have you called every name in the book almost to the point if they question your sexuality.

There is a 3300+ thread currently going to try to convince Christians about a certain way of life is normal according to the bible and then usual calling people fundies when they hold to their biblical beliefs.


In modern Christianity, you just can seem to win SMH

I find even in 1st-century Christianity they just can't seem to win.
Many were even martyred for their stand.
So, it is No wonder at Matthew 10:22 it says Christians would be 'hated'.
Even those of apostate Christianity ( Christendom ) are hated for various reasons some scriptural and some not.
I suppose the 'dirt will come out with the wash' as described about the coming 'time of separation' to take place on Earth as found at Matthew 25:31-33,37,40.
Jesus will separate the fake/weed tares Christians ( figurative goats ) from the genuine wheat Christians (figurative sheep). The ones figuratively placed at Jesus' right hand of favor will be the Victors.
They will 'win' because they will be part of the humble meek who will inherit the Earth - Matthew 5:5; Psalm 37:9-11

Fundie is just short for fundamentalist, which is a legit term for the subset of Christianity that holds to Biblical literalism and expects others to follow suit. Fundamentalist is a loooong word to type repeatedly.

And that thread is not about "a certain way of life". It is about a certain type of human being.

Not necessarily

So what? Ignore the noise.

If you dont drink, then someone will make it their mission to get you drunk and call you sheltered because you dont drink and once they do, Christians shouldnt be drinking.
I - like Jesus and the disciples - drink wine. No problem.

Waiting for marriage until you have sex, will have you called every name in the book almost to the point if they question your sexuality.
Again, so what? Tune out the idiots and what they say.

In modern Christianity, you just can seem to win SMH
It's not a game. There's no competition.
Comments in blue.

It's stupid to follow after other people's opinions. You'll never get anywhere going down that path.

As per the thread subject line: I know very many Christians whom I respect, admire and love. They're winners.

They are also capable of recognizing allegory, metaphor and myth from reality.

Fundie is meant as a slam and it's a code word for people who are perceived to not approve of SS relations.

Buffalo Springfield said it best: "Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life it will creep. It starts when you're always afraid..."

Christian fundies preach fear. Because they are afraid of their god. They are similar in many ways to some primitive peoples who think magic words, special incantations, will appease the angry gods.

They are similar in other ways too. But I suppose that's a topic for another day.

A fundamentalist is nothing more than Westboro Baptist Church or those who hold to similar beliefs of damnation.
