Fundamentalism

At one time, a fundamentalist was simply a person who adhered to certain beliefs considered to be fundamental (including the Virgin Birth, deity of Christ, Scriptural inerrancy, etc.) However, this term often refers to Christians who hold beliefs that many consider to be very rigid and intolerant of earlier Christian beliefs. A fundamentalist can be any denomination or tradition within Christianity (as well as other faiths), and it’s said that fundamentalism is more an attitude than it is a set of beliefs. Common concerns include the adoption of beliefs contrary to those of the early Church, uncontextual Scripture interpretations, intolerance towards other Christians, and, in some cases, hateful attitudes towards non-Christians.
