A fundamentalist is a christian that believes in the fundamentals of the Christian faith as defined in the New Testament. [Based on the conservative protestant movement started in 1910, to oppose modernism.] Modernism was an attempt by liberals, to reconcile the teachings of Christianity with the findings of science, especially evolution. A fundamentalist believes: The inerrancy, infallibility and literal truth of the bible. The virgin birth and complete deity of Jesus Christ. The physical ressurection of Christ and all dead. The atoning sacrifice for the sins of the World, by Jesus' death on the cross. The second coming of Christ in bodilly form. The way I look at it, the real believers are the fundamentalists. If these are the fundamentals of the Christian faith, then this is what Christians are supposed to believe.
