Sadly, what the narrow minded and ignorant Fundamentalists really were: the Pharisee wing of fake Churchianity. Clutching onto pagan polytheism, (the false Trinity doctrine). Denying Jesus is Lord now, holding to Premillennialism, which only lets him be Lord in the future. Since they cannot see the Kingdom of God, were they even born again? See John 3:3. Along with these errors, they were usually Arminian in soteriology, and made converts by the will of man, see John 1:13. Converts were scared into a prayer as fire insurance due to a false teaching of eternal punishING of burning in the Lake of Fire for non believers, (instead of the eternal punishMENT of destruction or annihilation). And instead of belonging to a heavenly country, and being pilgrims, strangers, or ambassadors, they were citizens to earthly countries and were proud of their staunch anti-communism and conservatism. They were justifying force to spread their views.
