The Evangelical Manifesto

evangmanif.JPGToday, "The Evangelical Manifesto" was released.  This document, spearheaded by Os Guiness, attempts to reclaim the term "evangelical" from today's popular definition perpetuated by the media-- a large voting block of ignorant rednecks who care only about abortion and homosexuality.  This document does a fine job of expressing that the term's original meaning had to do with the gospel only, and that clinging to that biblical gospel does not mean that you are hostile toward the surrounding culture.  In fact, holding to the gospel makes you the exact opposite!   I have signed the document.  I encourage you to read the summary, as well as the entire statement.
