Legalism is where they are KJV version of the Bible only, no makeup, women/girls cannot wear pants, no secular or contemporary christian music allowed, they get very political at times on topics, no monopoly or card games because they are "evil", I've even seen in some churches women sit on one side and men on the other. I went to a church like this for a day one time and was surprised because I grew up in a church where what isn't acceptable like i listed is acceptable.
Question for Christian or former Christian GAGers: Have you ever been to a legalistic church?

I don't think it's good being a fundamentalist. They focus on appearances and typicalities, they are against technology and music, they have distinct ryles as to what is and is nor allowed, they always appear happym calm and collected.. they are hypocrites. They focus on appearances and typicalities and loose the gist1
No I haven't been but I haven't been going to church latey bc my old church kicked out their old preacher bc he said he didn't belive the end of the world would end like everyone else in the church said it would. Since he has been gone the new preacher only preaches about the end of the world. They changed so many things. Like you can't to that etc... The old preacher was like we are all sinners and all sin. You can't be perfect. Which I agreed on.
This new preacher is bad. I felt like I was I some end of the world cult. Thank goodness I quit.0

I am Christian however I would not attend a church like this. I believe in my religion but I use common sense like how can monopoly be evil or women wearing makeup. Different denominations try to add more stipulations to their beliefs so they are better than others.2

I dont know, people would probably consider me a 'radical' Christian.
However, i dont go to church. I, like Leo Tolstoy, believe you should find God in your own eyes before seeking the advice of others...2
Judging by your description I'd consider them fundamentalists.1
