I sympathize with Rob's thoughts and concerns. His comments both share a deterioration of the term evangelical from the left and the right. From my perspective both Rob and the religious right miss the point. Evangalicalism, if it stands for anything, stands for the necessity for the individual to experience spiritual regeneration through a life-changing encounter with Christ. Secondarily, from a historical perspective, it has to do something with an alignment with the theology of the Reformers.

Bell's comment quoted above reflects neither of these. Instead it reflects some sort of sentiment of rootedness in the orthodox church. For me, this is not enough.


Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel,(euvagge,lion) for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
