The Word ‘Evangelical’ Has Been Emptied of All Meaning

It’s time to abandon it as an utterly meaningless Rorschach / Chameleon like word which only takes on the appearance of its surroundings.  It CERTAINLY no longer means what Luther meant when he called himself and other protesters ‘Evangelische’.  There are virtually no Evangelische among American ‘Evangelicals’ because rather than protesting against heresy and embracing the Gospel, they have abandoned the Gospel and embraced the world.

    It’s basically a political term, these days.

    Evangelicals are the socially conservative arm of the Republican Party, and little else. It’s an absurd usage, of course, but it’s pretty much the way it looks to me.

    I have more a few friends who no longer use the term for exactly that reason. They don’t like the association, or they don’t like the theological implications. In any case, it’s over.

    That it’s also in the name of my church (Durham Evangelical Church) is slightly problematic.
