Over at Pyromaniacs, Phil Johnson examines Rob Bell’s interview in the Boston Globe about how recovering the “spiritual context” of the word evangelical, from it’s use as as a synonym for “religious right-wing politicos”:
In fact, listen to Bell’s own cockamamie claim about what the term properly describes: “I embrace the term evangelical, if by that we mean a belief that we together can actually work for change in the world, caring for the environment, extending to the poor generosity and kindness, a hopeful outlook. That’s a beautiful sort of thing.”
So is that what Bell considers “a spiritual context,” or did he already forget what he had just been saying about how the term became politicized and corrupted in the first place? Hmmm.
