15 Signs That You Might be a Modern Evangelical

by randy on May 24th, 2010
  1. Everytime Israel is in the newspaper your Pastor finds a way to fit it into prophecy.
  2. Even though Jesus made wine (John 2:1-11) and drank wine (Luke 7:33-35) you are certain that if anyone else does the same, they are in sin.
  3. You refer to worship as the singing portion of church.
  4. You speak of worshiping in spirit and truth as a 50/50 balance.
  5. Five days you work, the other two are set apart for running errands.
  6. You partake of communion at home sometimes.
  7. At church, every song consists of seven words repeated eleven times over.
  8. You often tell people with certainty that God told you something, and it’s not something found in scripture.
  9. You use, “Jesus is coming back soon” as an excuse sometimes.
  10. You don’t think doctrine is important. All we need is love.
  11. You can’t imagine how someone could be saved apart from praying the sinners prayer.
  12. You’ve been baptized more than once and might do it again.
  13. You see nothing wrong with listening to a sermon online instead of going to church.
  14. You consider it somewhat worldly to have any other “non-spiritual” interests or hobbies.
  15. You do not fit into any other category but “Bible believing Christian”.

    Randy… this is all very interesting. But, I would like to know your full name. I think I may know you and would like to know for sure. These articles are all very interesting and appreciated.

    Randy-yeah. You got it down. And I was an evangelical Christian until I saw the folly of all of it. One thing I realized after I left evangelical Protestantism for Eastern Orthodoxy; all this talk about the end of the world stuff just depressed the heck out of me. I didn’t realize how depressed I was until I got out of it. Thank you so much for this blog. It has been a blessing to me.
