Evangelicals Have Abandoned the Character Test. The Competence Test is Next.

"I know that for now I’ve lost the character argument. It’s well-established that a great number of white Evangelicals didn’t truly believe the words they wrote, endorsed, and argued in 1998 and for 18 years until the 2016 election. Oh sure, they thought they believed those words....We may think we possess an array of virtues and beliefs, but we don’t really know who we are or what we believe until those virtues and beliefs are put to the test." - The Dispatch

White joins many other believers on that more radical edge." - The French Press

What Happened to ‘Evangelicals’? How Politics Seized a Precious Word

"As an evangelical myself, I won’t be taking the Washington Post’s recommendation that it is time for evangelicals to 'panic.' The Lord is on his throne, and he will accomplish his purposes with or without a healthy, coherent American evangelical community. But pastors and lay evangelicals would do well to reflect on the roots of today’s evangelical crisis, and consider how they can influence their congregations toward a better way and witness with regard to politics." - Desiring God
