Fundamentalism is Self-Righteousness November 2, 2015

Fundamentalism (Evangelicalism more broadly) is self-righteousness

    It is very self-centered. The whole thing centers around “I get to go to heaven” and you won’t hear a word about carrying your cross. One of their favorite verses (which they misinterpret) is Eph 2:8-9 – “not of works.” How convenient.

    I used to be an evangelical. One of the most commonly sung hymns was called “It is mine, mine.”

    Fundamentalism is judgmental. Not in the cause of justice, but in order to attack anyone different. The attacks lead to injustice and discrimination, results that add to their self-righteousness and disturbs them not in the least.

    One of my pet peeves with that crew, but it’s hard to rank my pet peeves in any kind of order.
