Every discipline has fundamentals or essentials! Whether it is football, medicine, teaching English or any language, computer science, personal relations, skills of welding, dress making, music, playing an instrument, piano tuning, education, law, justice, or Christianity, every discipline has its fundamentals.
The further one departs from the fundamentals, the greater risk one has of causing damage, injury, chaos, and loss. The object of a good education is to instill a respect and knowledge of the fundamentals. The fundamentals of math includes the learning of the number system, especially adding, subtracting, multiplication, and division. Then one learns the fundamentals of logic and its rules. By building upon these fundamentals, one learns and is able to apply the language of science. From this he is able to make discoveries which enhance the well being of man. These principles of fundamentals enable one to learn the plan and will of his God and to establish and enhance a relationship with Him. Without the fundamentals, learning in these areas will stop and it leads to loss and ruin.
A fundamentalist will base all of his actions upon the fundamentals and then branch out from these to make discoveries. The branching out should never leave the principles of the fundamentals. If it does, one will fail to perceive and understand their failures and errors. The error of human culture is to ignore the fundamentals in the name of progressive-ism. They claim that they are progressive in thought by ignoring some or all of the fundamentals. Discernment is necessary to know the difference between fundamentals and “progressive” departures. Some throw off the rules of God and call it good. This appears to be the foundation of a group called “unfundamentalism”. They throw out the logic of God and claim to be logical, modern, and intellectual. There is no advancement by overthrowing fundamentalist principles. There is only loss and eventual suffering.
