Evangelicalism’s Cultural Captivity

August 30, 2014

“We erred. We did not know that evangelicalism in America is more than a theological term. It is a cultural definition; a religious counterpart to the prevailing mood of conservative and secular nationalism.

The event that illuminated the cultural captivity of much of evangelicalism was the civil rights struggle in America. Evangelicals, both black and white, were conspicuously absent from the struggle throughout the sixties. The reason was that we were all victims of the same disease–egalitarian racism.” –William E. Pennell, March 1975

Got this from Fuller’s magazine Spring 2014
