WHAT IS A FUNDAMENTALIST AND BIBLICAL SEPARATION


FUNDAMENTALIST AND BIBLICAL SEPARATION

I thought that my Dad was a Fundamental Baptist preacher. Here I am in 1947, just a few months old and we are living in Lynchburg Virginia and Dad and Mom are starting church, Dad was living in Asheboro, NC and came to Lynchburg, VA to help Munford Baptist Church.
I believed my Dad started Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches.


My sister is trying to get more information about these years of Dad and Mom, I am also trying get more information myself) But it seems Dad and Mom were there about five years. During this time its my understanding that he put up a tent on the grounds on Park Ave in Lyncbhurg, and yet another church was started.

When it comes to BIBLICAL SEPARATION, HERE ARE TWO PASTORS/PREACHERS WHO HAVE PRACTICED FUNDAMENTALIST FOR A LIFE TIME.

BURLINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, APRIL 1945

Last night was the very first time I had seen these papers. There were about eight different ADS from the Burlington NC meeting.
.
I thought I did some good research on this subject.
,
I HEAR A LOT ABOUT FUNDAMENTALIST TODAY, AND HOW BAD IT IS BECOMING.
MAYBE WE NEED TO GET BACK TO WHAT FUNDAMENTALISM OUGHT TO BE.
.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG ABOUT FUNDAMENTALISM,
WHAT IS WRONG? IT IS THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE ABOUT, TRYING TO BE ONE AND ANT'T.
