We Put the ‘Mental’ in Fundamentalism
‘The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.’ ~ Proverbs 1:7
I ran across a sad posting on a sad blog this morning that initially had me quite vexed. However, as I posted in the comments section, I am really not surprised–we are conceived in sin and enemies of God. That blogger is only acting according to their (and our) nature. Ultimately, the post saddened me and elicited a sense of pity in the writer and their amen corner (as it were). I will pray for them.
Here is some of what they wrote:
The more I interact with Christian fundamentalists, either in church or on the Internet, the more I become convinced it is a disease of the mind, or at least a self-replicating meme or “mind virus.” Having been a Christian fundamentalist myself, I can honestly say that you aren’t in your right mind when you are caught in the throes of religious fundamentalism.
I would ask that you pray for them, as well–that point of view has more adherents than we may like to admit and it is gaining steam day by day.
