Fundamentalism summarized in four sentences?

What do you guys thinks? The following is an (intended satirical) comment left on a Facebook thread:

church history…that isn’t even important, we have the scriptures. Plus, the church fell into apostasy after the apostles died…and fully became apostate in the medevial era. Read Revelation. It predicts the existence of the whore of Babylon, ie. the apostate christian church, ie. the Roman catholic ‘church’ which is really just a satanic organization erected to deceive God’s elect

But I was particularly amused, by the comment right underneath:

Except for Augustine, he was elect for some reason

(allusion to Calvinists appealing to St. Augustine)

About the whore of babylone, he is thinking in an Western Mindset, he needs to think in a Eastern Mindset because that is where the Bible was formally formed. The Whore of Babylon can be explained here in the Catholic Forum Answers based from “Hunts anti-catholic book” Forgot what the REAL name is.

The usual misinterptation and misapplied scripture.

church history…that isn’t even important, we have the scriptures.

The scriptures are history, and they come from the Church. :rolleyes:

the church fell into apostasy after the apostles died

So then Jesus lied, for He said the Holy Spirit would guide the Church. :frowning:

Where do they get their scriptures and why do they believe in Jesus? :shrug:
