What is Biblical fundamentalism?
It is the fundamentals or core teachings of the Christian faith which is solely found in Holy Scripture. Without it, you will not be in the truth (in Christ) but will be led astray.
2 Timothy 3:12-17 (emphasis added)
12 Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, (Satan will send his students like atheists, agnostics, those in the new age religion, humanists, to attack the Word of God and try to steer God’s people away from the truth) 13 while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived (Those who are trying to take you away from God’s Word are pure evil who themselves have been misled, being guided by demonic entities in the spiritual realm, Ephensians 6:10-18). 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it 15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus (We must stay the course, trusting in God’s Word and living a life of transformation by it, for the glory of God the Father and Jesus Christ). 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work (Why is the Bible attacked continuously? Because it came directly from God and all that is evil will without exception loathe it. Satan’s envoys are trying to destroy that which is eternal because it has the power to bring salvation through faith in Christ to the reader).
He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.
- Sound Doctrine (teachings)
The Bible can be trusted 100% of the time. It is trustworthy because it will never lead you astray but will always guide you into God’s truth and righteousness.
Without sound doctrine, you cannot know the real God. It will teach you the nature and character of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will only use Scripture to bring you into a personal relationship with the Son of God, Christ Jesus. Any other type of literature that claims to bring you enlightenment (false truth) will actually bring you into deeper darkness.
Consult God’s instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.
All those opposed to God’s Word are without light but remain in darkness. That is not enough for them to choose to be blind but they go out and try to deceive more souls to be like them, heaping upon themselves more condemnation.
2 John 1:9
Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.
Those who are hostile to sound teachings found in Scripture are devoid of God. Anyone who follows them will end up in Hell where the fire does not end causing the individual to weep and gnash their teeth in unimaginable pain because they despised and rejected the truth of God’s Word.
