I have been surprised by the change in Fundamentalism from what I grew up with in the 70's & early 80's. Back then very few would acknowledge or willing accept the tag of Fundamentalism and this was usually saved for those "kooky independent fire-and-brimestone preaching" baptist churches. Now it seems to be a more acceptable and washed-out tag. In the late 80's when I joined the military I was running from God, my Dad's Church, my parents religion, and my limiting christianity (or so I thought). After being away from Church and God's leading for over 10 yrs I guess I missed a lot of the changes and so I'm curious what everyone's definition of "FUNDAMENTALISM" is. BE NICE and respectful of each one's opinion. This is not a point/counter-point kind of thread...I just want to see what the differences are.
