Fundagelicals are very uptight about sex. They believe that the only sex that is permissible is sex between heterosexual married couples. It doesn't matter how freaky the sex is, as long as it between married heterosexuals; it's O.K. The Religious Right believes that Father's and husbands control the sexual activity of their unmarried daughters and … Continue reading Masturbation: You can’t beat it.
Most Fundagelicals are Dispensationalist. They read the book of Revelation literally and believe there is a planned timetable to the end of the world.

Currently, … Continue reading Bad Theology: Natural Disasters are God’s Judgement

You can cringe through A Thief in the Night, or sit stupefied by the weirdness of The Omega Code. Watch any Christian film and experience the disappointment that is total mediocrity fused … Continue reading Christian films are so bad!
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you " (Matthew 28:19-20 KJV) Fundagelicals are big on missions and evangelism. They take the "Great Commission" seriously. Fundagelicals love home … Continue reading Fundagelicals Love Them Some Church Planting.
When was the last time you went to an old fashioned book burning? Maybe when Harry Potter first came out? Fundagelicals always loved them some good old fashioned bonfires to burn up ungodly stuff. In High School, I had a friend who burned his Queen albums several times. He would burn them, backslide, buy them … Continue reading Why Fundagelicals Don’t Burn Books Anymore.
