Evangelicals created the word to separate themselves from historic Christianity that they felt was too liberal.
Now they’ve ruined Evangelical.
I would identify as an Evangelical, having been raised as one and being one for 50+ years.
But now, to associate the term “Evangelical” is to stain myself in scandal and moral antinomy.
I call myself “Christian,” for now, and seek to find a good label that I can use so I can abandon “Evangelical” as having been destroyed by Trump, Falwell, Graham, and Dobson.
