Fundamentals and the Bible

From Doug Kutilek’s As I See It, April, 2012

(Doug’s little email news letter is worth your time)

“It is a mistake often made by educated persons who happen to have but little knowledge of historical theology, to suppose that [Christian] Fundamentalism is a new and strange form of thought. It is nothing of the kind; it is the partial and uneducated [sic] survival of a theology which was once universally held by all Christians. . . . No, the Fundamentalist may be wrong; I think that he is. But it is we who have departed from the tradition, not he, and I am sorry for the fate of anyone who tries to argue with a fundamentalist on the basis of authority. The Bible and the corpus theologicum of the Church is on the Fundamentalist side.”

Kirsopp Lake (1872-1946)

The Religion of Yesterday and Tomorrow, p. 62

(Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1925)

[Note: Kirsopp Lake was a prominent liberal Anglican scholar who specialized in N.T. textual criticism, church history and archaeology. It is with a full knowledge of the issues that he made this candid admission that doctrinally Fundamentalism is true to Scripture.–Editor]

  1. Aaron,I think you're asking about Doug Kutilek, in which case the answer is a resounding, "No." He runs in order to combat that view, not to defend it.

  2. Yes. TGD is correct, Kutilek is a non-KJV-only guy. He, and other writers he posts at their site have some of the best material refuting KJV onlyism.
