I realize that the above question has been asked and answered many times before now. This is nothing new. Regardless, this is a real issue for me. I am occasionally asked by other people if I am an evangelical. I've found that the safest and most accurate answer to that question is, "That depends on what you mean by the word evangelical."
This is an important term because , like it or not, our American culture equates biblical Christianity with evangelicalism.
I plan to write on this issue over the next few days. However, before I do so I would like to hear from you. What do you think the term evangelical means?
