Welcome Home

Of all the people groups that are described in the New Testament, the group that those of us who consider ourselves Evangelicals are closest to in terms of ideology and theology, political activism and pragmatism, Evangelicals are more akin to the Pharisees of the New Testament than to any other group.

But here’s the rub. 

Just like the Pharisees were then, Evangelicals are now known for what and who we’re against, rather than who and what we’re for. Evangelicals, just like the Pharisees, are known more for demarcating who’s in and who’s out, rather than reaching out.

Does this seem unfair? 

You tell me.
