Evangelicalism is a Protestant Christian movement that began in the 17th century and became an organized movement with the emergence around 1730 of the Methodists in England and the Pietists among Lutherans in Germany and Scandinavia. The movement became even more significant in the United States during the series of Great Awakenings of the 18th and 19th centuries, where it drew far more members than in Europe. It continues to draw adherents globally in the 21st century, especially in the developing world.

Evangelicalism de-emphasizes ritual and emphasizes the piety of the individual, requiring him or her to meet certain active commitments, including:

The need for personal conversion, or being "born again"
A high regard for biblical authority
An emphasis on teachings that proclaim the saving death and resurrection of the Son of God, Jesus Christ[1]
Actively expressing and sharing the gospel

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangelicalism

Is just a movement. Robertson and Falwell followed Graham's direction and promised the republican party loyal votes if they would throw some tax dollars and more tax exemptions their way...

It's not that old of a cult. Younger by far than Islam.

John 3:1-21

1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Actually, no. The religious sect of Evangelism didn't get a movement going behind it until the 16th century. It's a protestant term,not Catholic. And there were NO Baptists during Christ's lifetime.

Hey, if a born again evangelical can spread the gospel according to the NIV, most anyone can. Especially a person who was American Lutheran for 45 years.(THat's a Christian religion)

Oh, no. Democrats believe in the teachings of Christ that "whatsoever you do unto the least of these, so, too,you do unto" Christ. Republican evangelical born agains believe in making the rich richer and damning the poor. They believe Christ is coming back and wants only the rich to rule. It's a sick and twisted political cult.

Democrats who are Christian are pretty good to go with the heaven thing and Christ approval thingy. ;)

Evangelising doesn't always have to be through the spoken word.
Actions really can often speak louder than words.
A kind deed or word to someone can be much more effective than quoting scripture at them.

Who isn't kind? Every blood bought, born again, Holy Spirit filled, washed in the blood, redeemed, saved child of the living God does good works and deeds. It's the basic fruit of being saved like sharing the gospel.

Every saved person shares and defends the gospel, every saved person does good works and deeds. BUT good works and deeds alone will not be good enough to save someone.

Luckily for us God provided a way through Jesus, who lived a sinless life and offered His blood as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.

That is exactly what Christ meant. You should pray in closets and be humble, and by your actions of love will people know you are Christ when if asked where you get your love and peace, you respond and give credit to Christ.

NOT by preaching and regurgitating quotes from the bible and then name-calling those who don't believe as you do.
