Fundamentalists... based on hallucinations of a teenage girl in the 1800s? True fundamentalists base nothing on anything from the 1800s. Everything is based on the Scriptures only. People who base any faith or doctrine on something extra-Biblical, e.g., from the 1800s, would be involved in a cult.

If you buy into Darbyism, promoted by C.I Scofield and many other noted fundamentalists, including D. L. Moody, then you are cult-like.

I realize that to call Fundamentalism a cult is an unknown proposition to many Fundys. But, the only difference between Fundys and Seventh Day Adventists and Jehovah’s Witnesses is that you have converted more people.

Prior to 1830, there is no history of “the rapture”, which is the story line that propelled the Seventh Day Adventists, the JW and what became the Fundamentalists, starting with the Niagra Conferences of 1878 through 1920.

The best thing that can be said of that movement (Darbyism) is that it promoted a wave of evangelicalism and the attempt to bring people to Christ.
