It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning.
In Western culture today, there are many caricatures of evangelical Christians. For some, the term evangelical Christian is equivalent to “right-wing, fundamentalist Republican.” For others, “evangelical Christian” is a title used to differentiate an individual from a Catholic Christian or an Orthodox Christian
As for me, a Native Spiritual Teacher for most of my life, retired.
I have a problems understanding today’s Evangelical Christians.
What is this and how did this happen?
One would tend to think that a Christian is any believer that follows the teaching of Jesus Christ as their Savior?
In reality, all Christians should be evangelical Christians. The Bible is consistently instructing us to be witnesses of the good news (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 16:1-4; 1 Peter 3:15). There is no better news than Jesus! There is no higher calling than evangelist. There is no doubt that holding to the fundamentals of the Bible will result in a certain worldview and, yes, political belief.
However, there is nothing about being an evangelical that demands a certain political party or affiliation. An evangelical Christian is called to share the good news, to preach God’s Word, and to set an example of purity and integrity. If these callings require political action, so be it. At the same time, evangelical Christians should not be sidetracked into abandoning our highest calling—sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Relating or belonging to any Protestant Christian church that emphasizes the authority of the Bible and salvation through the personal acceptance of Jesus Christ
The term evangelical derives from the Greek word euangelion meaning “gospel” or “good news.” Technically speaking, evangelical refers to a person, church, or organization that is committed to the Christian gospel message that Jesus Christ is the savior of humanity.
What does it mean to be an Evangelical Christian? How is it different from other labels of Christianity?
“right-wing, fundamentalist Republican.”
How long can a reasonable society label as “righteous” any group of people largely propped up by bigotry, arrogance, intolerance, division, indifference and outright contempt for the most oppressed?
It’s time to stand up, point and shout: “The Emperor has no clothes!”
“The Emperor has no clothes!”
Used to express when many people believe something that is not true. Used also to express something as untrue. See also the expression “the Emperor’s new clothes”.
Based on Sufi wisdom, Hans Christian Andersen tells the tale in his “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, the story this expression derives from. In it. there existed an emperor who loved wearing fine clothes and spent all of his people’s money on them. He had a different set for each hour and was, without doubt, the finest dressed man in the land.
