    "Fundamentalist" was originally used as a word to describe Christians who wanted to get back to the fundamental roots of the faith, but over time, "Fundy" or "Fundamentalist" came to be considered a slur because people opposed to Christianity so often used it to imply that the fundamentalists are basic, or stupid, or can't understand anything beyond the fundamentals. "Fundamentalist" tends to evoke an ignorant backwoods hick. Evangelical is the polite label that replaced it. Evangelical comes from the Greek word for "good news" (the "good news" that Jesus died for our sins being the fundamental component of the Christian faith). So it's basically just a nicer way to say the same thing, because it implies that a person is a Bible-believing Christian and not a rube.

      Note that the other answers tend to support mine - people are either saying they're basically the same, or are equating "fundamentalism" with "old gospel songs" (more "backwoods") and "evangelicals" with mega-churches (more "suburban").

    Forget all "labels"..

    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.

    .

    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

    Evangelicals are no longer Christian - they've all become hard line trump-voting republicans - leave Christ out of this for now, they'll pick him up on the way out....

    Interesting question because fundies are more evangelical than evangelicals. They are a lot more likely to give you a gospel tract or invite you to church. Evangelicals tend to be mega-church attendees and like their rock 'n' roll bands. Fundies go more for the old gospel songs and hymns. Evangelicals have more money than fundies and are more worldly in general.

      The whiny wimpy wiener has me blocked so...
      Not a great deal.
      All evangelicals are fundamentalists.
      Not all fundamentalists are evangelical.

    Sometimes, none at all....

    A fundamentalist can belong to a evangelical sect, and an evangelical can believe the fundamentalist crap.

    However,the short version:

    Evangelicals tend to believe that their sect needs bishops and a hierarchy within their church (as with Roman Catholics, Anglicans and Orthodox versions of Christianity). They are more likely to accept ideas like evolution.

    Other sects assume that all Christians are at the same level, although some are ministers and elders. They are more likely to assume that the Bible is to be taken literally, hence that creation occurred over a period of six days.

      Most evangelicals and fundamentalists agree that the Bible is God's Word. They may not always agree on what is meant literally and what is not but they agree on the basics - the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, His soon return, and salvation for those who receive Him as Savior.
