    I’m not sure the word “evangelical” has any meaning for most people anymore, even evangelicals. More and more I identify myself as a Christian who is classic in outlook and belief.

    The Protestant movement partly came about because of the abuses in Rome. Luther called out those who sold indulgences and couldn’t keep their britches up. Other reformers lamented the great amounts of money extracted from the poor as they worshiped the relics of saints in cathedrals.

    So, the likes of Falwell, Driscoll et al bring shame to the cause of Christ just like the corrupt priests at the time of the Reformation. God is sovereign, but that can never be used as an excuse for sin (even Judas was responsible for the choices he made).

    2024 could be the year that destroys evangelicalism in America. The true church will always survive, but a movement that has tolerated corruption for such a long time, and even applauded it, is not beyond the judgement of God.

    Interesting article.

    Hmm…so the author teaches at an SBC seminary. Interesting.

    I know plenty of evangelical writers who applaud the good deeds of evangelicals. Yancey for example. He credits those good deeds as keeping him in the faith.

    Doesn’t it seem perverse that a Xn professor of ethics would poo-poo the horrible example of Falwell? Really?
