An interesting article from The Huffington Post that asks a very pertinent about evangelical christianity – and I hasten to add about the particularly American version of evangelical christianity – that needs to be answered…because it doesn’t look like any form of Christianity that I recognise.
The evangelical Christian message is loud and clear. They care for no one but themselves. Their devotion is to the version of Christianity they have created, which calls for ruthless abandonment of immigrants, women, children – even their own – and anyone else who doesn’t fall inline with their message. Social justice, which is mentioned in Bible verses over two thousand times, has been replaced with hardline political ideology. Principle over people. Indifference over involvement. Judgment over generosity.
