The Troublesome Word “Evangelical”

By | January 23, 2018

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.
