To be or not be an Evangelical

To be or not be an Evangelical

In this Dispatch from March 2018, Brian Stiller of the World Evangelical Alliance explains, "A friend wrote, 'I no longer call myself an Evangelical.' Thoughtful, well informed but now I suspect feeling embarrassed, he has chosen to avoid a term used globally by hundreds of millions of Christians. For many within shouting distance of U.S. media circles and party politics, the word has become a banner of disrepute. Evangelical is now a word disfigured by political pundits, muddied by protestors from the left and right, and brought into dishonour by self-proclaimed spokespeople who excuse inappropriate behaviour and language as the necessary price for political power. The center has shifted, and many Evangelicals now wonder where they fit."
