We've Never Known What To Do With the Term Anyway...


Among the more religiously observant Christians in America, the term "evangelical" is unpopular, according to a Baylor University study. Nearly 70% of evangelical and black Protestants say "Bible-believing" better describes their views. Nearly as many preferred the term "born-again." Only 15% of all respondents called themselves "evangelical", and within that group just 2% said it was the best description

--The Globe and Mail 9/11/06

8 times out of 10 most Christians wrongly use "evangelistic" for "evangelical" or "evangelical" for "evangelistic" anyway.  The term no longer really connects with people.
