“because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I will spit you out of my mouth” (Rev 3:16).
I remember when fundamental meant a good thing! It meant that something was of paramount importance and that the person who held views of paramount importance did not easily sway to opposing values.
“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming” (Eph 4:14).
The word is now one to be avoided, because if you’re a fundamental in this progressive society, you’re as relevant as a cassette player in a digital age! Rather than be fundamental, we should be ‘open-minded’, always asking questions and never coming to the knowledge of the Truth or believing anything as definite. I’m sorry, but I don’t buy that!
“…they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven” (Mark 4:12)!
I follow a Fundamentalist. He is the Real Fundamentalist…
