Protestant fundamentalism is a religious fundamentalist movement in North American Protestantism that arose in the early part of the 20th century in reaction to modernism [W] and which emphasized that the Bible is literally true both as a moral guide and as a historical record.
The essential doctrines of Protestant fundamentalism are:
- the inerrancy of the Bible,
- the Virgin birth,
- physical resurrection
- atonement by the sacrificial death of Christ, and
- the Second Coming.
The book Stealing Jesus says Protestant fundamentalism also included the doctrine of dispensationalism, and that much of its doctrine was brand new – hence the use of the word "fundamental" in this context is a bit of a misnomer. The author redefines the the difference between fundies and more liberal sects as being a difference of "legalism" – fundies (legalistic Protestantism) see following doctrine to the letter as the priority, while non-fundies are more interested in obeying the spirit of doctrine, and in receiving the love of God/Christ. Must re-read and research.
