“Evangelicans”: The New Christianity (Inside the Mind of Evangelicals)

Anybody who had seriously and honestly read the New Testament would never mistake what passes for Christianity in America today, especially by those proclaiming themselves the truest expression of it — evangelicals. Being a real Christian should be uncomfortable, inconvenient and difficult. American evangelicals have reinvented Christianity to suit their prejudices and desires. As aContinue reading ““Evangelicans”: The New Christianity (Inside the Mind of Evangelicals)”

“The Magic King”: Inside the Mind of an Evangelical

Evangelical Christians are predisposed to believe the unimaginable, impossible and improbable.  “My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3in whom are hidden all the treasuresContinue reading ““The Magic King”: Inside the Mind of an Evangelical”

Are you a “Most,” “Not all” or “Not sure” Evangelical Christian?

ALL evangelicals are different! Therefore, I will apply the term loosely to refer to a significant though not necessarily a majority of those self identifying as an evangelical or reflecting evangelical like beliefs. Many “evangelicals” have vacated the term due to its toxicity and political connection to President Trump further complicating its usage. It isContinue reading “Are you a “Most,” “Not all” or “Not sure” Evangelical Christian?”

Jesus, the Cure for Spiritual Cancer?: Inside the Mind of an Evangelical

A course in evangelism is mandatory for most first year students of evangelical institutions or colleges. I went to Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Il. Here, I was taught to think of sharing the gospel as viewing nonbelievers as unknowingly walking around with terminal cancer and you had the cure. Wouldn’t you feel obligated andContinue reading “Jesus, the Cure for Spiritual Cancer?: Inside the Mind of an Evangelical”

Why I’m not an evangelical born-again Christian –anymore

Being an evangelical was the happiest days of my life. I was at peace. I loved everyone, friend and foe alike. I had purpose. Life had meaning. My heart was filled with hope. God loved me and that was all I needed. But I gave it all up. Had I never pursued theological training, IContinue reading “Why I’m not an evangelical born-again Christian –anymore”

Losing the battle but winning the (holy) war

Evangelicals think they have no choice but to vote for Trump even those who despise his moral bankruptcy. Some see not voting as a vote cast for a Democratic president who is sure to win without evangelical support. Here’s another option they may have never considered: Vote for the democrat as a deliberate act ofContinue reading “Losing the battle but winning the (holy) war”

Evangelicalism: A cowardly faith

Fear is a powerful motivator. It is an emotion deeply embedded in our genetic makeup without which we as a species would cease to be. Survival drives us from the moment of birth until our last breath. Now imagine if you could survive beyond the grave… ~Faith means not having (or wanting) to know theContinue reading “Evangelicalism: A cowardly faith”

“Pastors don’t link world events to speeding up return of Christ”

I must apologize for occasionally breaking from my original purpose with this blog to comment on current headlines involving evangelicalism. This one has been particularly popular. A recent study by LifeWay Research found the overwhelming majority of pastors (Protestant evangelical or other) don’t believe world events can accelerate the return of Jesus. Of course theyContinue reading ““Pastors don’t link world events to speeding up return of Christ””
