Hate speech is not good news

hate-speech.pngThe problem with Evangelicalism is that many Evangelicals aren’t evangelical enough. To paraphrase Bebbington, Evangelicalism stresses the euaggelion, the good news. It’s hallmark is a fourfold emphasis on the experience of the good news, the authority of the good news, the story of the good news and the practice of the good news. When the number one thing on your lips is not the good news but hate speech, towards Muslims or homosexuals or abortionists or drug addicts or anyone else for that matter, recognise that you’ve lost your Evangelical moorings.
