How does Presbyterian and Evangelical Reformed beliefs differ? I have noticed Fundamentalists seem to have a low view of mainline Protestants along with Catholics.
Much, Presbyterian Reformed Christian’s belief in a robust confessional faith (there are different confessions for different denominations. Some are, you can look these up on the internet, the Westminster Confession of Faith and the 3 Forms of unity. If you look them up by these names you will get them) that has deep historical and traditional roots. Fundamentalists are by and large non-confessional, non-historical, and non-traditional.
Evangelicalism is a different beast all together. You really could give a highly scholarly answer to this. I can provide two resources that I hope will help. I will elaborate briefly on the differences but the answer will necessarily be complex. First off the Evangelical movement sought to gain as many followers as possible so it reduced everything down to a lowest common denominator type belief system. Armenians and Calvinists, you can look these up online, disagree over how the “new birth” happens. So to cooperate they simply reduced such doctrines down to simply being “born again”. But they differences are fundamental.
Here is a link to my blog, I hate patting myself on the back but I am doing a series comparing Evangelicalism to the Reformed tradition, and a discussion by a Presbyterian critiquing Evangelicalism. I hope you enjoy.
