Entering Post-Evangelical Faith: No Longer the Sort of Christian I Once Was | Musings of a Hardlining Moderate

Entering Post-Evangelical Faith: No Longer the Sort of Christian I Once Was | Musings of a Hardlining Moderate.

My friend Carson Clark has an amazing gift of putting his (or should I say ‘our’?) theological and spiritual struggles in the right words.

I fully agree with him. I still consider myself an evangelical, be it rather (post)evangelical.

Here is the comment I have left on this post:

Dear Carson,
You did it again for me. That is where I am too, a post-evangelical Eastern Anglican Christian.
Like you, I adhere to a revised version of Bebbington’s four evangelical characteristics. which I label on my blog (in a post written in Romanian – https://danutm.wordpress.com/20… as:
1. biblical revelationism, rather than ‘biblicism’;
2. Christocentric Trinitariansm, rather than ‘crucicentrism’;
3. holistic transformism, rather than ‘conversionism’; and
4. incarnational engagement, rather than ‘activism’.
I admit it is a bit convoluted, but that is where I am now.
Unlike you, however, for me, post-evangelical is still, largely speaking, evangelical (in the same way that post-modern is still, to a large extent, modernistic).
