I would consider myself an Evangelical Christian, but I'm usually reluctant to use that term because I think it's become so diluted and politically hijacked that it's nearly meaningless anymore. A group of concerned Christians is attempting to change that, however, with today's release of the recently publicized paper, "An Evangelical Manifesto." I've read the document, and I think it's a great statement of what our identity should be in Christ, some ways we've lost that identity, and what our attitude should be if we are to recover it again. Principled, yet not unneccesarily devisive, I would be proud to offer this declaration to anyone who asks what I mean when I call myself an Evangelical. I put my name to the document on their website this morning, and I would encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ to carefully read it, consider it, and do the same.
