#ourCOG How do Evangelicals respond to this
How do Evangelical friends respond to this:
I am an ecumenically minded Catholic Christian who admires his Evangelical brothers and sisters for their emphasis on personal conversion, their love of the Scriptures and their missionary enthusiasm.
What I do not admire the way that so many of them take the Bible totally literally, assume that everyone who has not invited the Lord Jesus into their heart is going to hell, and fail to realise that they interpret the Bible within a received tradition of interpretation.
In the case of American Evangelicals there is also a tendency to confuse an ideology of militarism, consumer capitalism and authoritarian values with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (This is not the case with most British Evangelicals).
Is this fair?
