Back to the Fundamentalist/Conservative Evangelical Issue

Terms are words. Words can create a certain atmosphere, and that is certainly true with labels like “fundamentalist” or “evangelical.”

Of course these terms can be modified “neo-fundamentalist, neo-evangelical.” If we polled about all possible descriptors, it would be too much.

So please approximate the terminology nearest to where you are when it comes to using the term “fundamentalist” and “conservative evangelical.”

We have had many such polls and discussions in the past, so this is an attempt to monitor trends in terminology.

But as far as comments go, please indicate your preferred descriptor. Mine is “Bible-oriented Christian.”

What is your relationship to the term "fundamentalist?"

I proudly wear the label without reservation.

I think the term "fundamentalist" was never a good descriptor and would never have used it to describe me, even though I embrace the essentials.
