..I've been referred to as one here more than once, (and personally, I don't think I fit the criteria),could someone please give me a brief rundown of what exactly the criteria is to be considered a fundie? I'm not a Christian Fundamentalist by any means.Not even close,nor am I southern baptist,Catholic, or anything close to that.I'm not very legalistic either.so i'm not sure what some mean when they say that.it seems to me that simply believing in end times qualifies to some as being a fundie?

Christian Fundamentalist is suppose to be the foundation of believers who are lead by the mental mind of Christ...............

If only this was true,but instead we have the the deep seated doctrine of men that passes has the mind of Christ, and those who passively subject themselves to it without being open to the Spirit of God, because of fear of the consequences of going against the flow.

What is 'Fundamentalism':
the effort to study the Bible, without the lens of 2,000 years of man-made doctrinal build-up;

to place yourself at a place where you are mimicking the faith that existed before man-made organizations took over and re-defined Christianity;

to preach and walk as the first century Christians did;

to get back to the fundamental basics of Christianity.

Main Entry: fun·da·men·tal·ism
Pronunciation: \-tə-ˌli-zəm\
Function: noun
Date: 1922
1 a often capitalized : a movement in 20th century Protestantism emphasizing the literally interpreted Bible as fundamental to Christian life and teaching b : the beliefs of this movement c : adherence to such beliefs
2 : a movement or attitude stressing strict and literal adherence to a set of basic principles

If you're a total literalist, then you're a fundie. If you believe that Revelation is yet to be fulfilled, then you're a fundie. I could be labeled as both a fundie and a universalist. It's just a label and a way to categorize our belief systems into one word.

And as with all labels and generalistions they get very abused .................
