The press conference at the National Press Club announcing the release of “An Evangelical Manifesto” has just concluded. Os Guinness drafted the document and gives the following as one critical reason why the manifesto is so necessary:
When you have best-selling authors who appear on public television with “feel-good” gospels who have to apologize to their own churches that they’ve diluted the faith when they get home, something is profoundly wrong. When you have Evangelical leaders who make predictions in the name of God, which by biblical standards are openly false prophecy, something is badly wrong. When scholars and writers can look at the Evangelical political movement and describe them as “theocrats” or worse, as “fascists,” something is badly wrong.
