    If the world hates the word “evangelical” then it’s almost assuredly a good word.

    If you vote Democrat then you are not a Christian and will burn in Hell.

    Religions should be abandoned and keep the book as literature like Harry Potter! Which by the way is a better fantasy to read!

    Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. All men are called to repent and put their trust in Christ ALONE for salvation.

    I mean….does "evangelical" appear in the Bible??? Does our actual label matter??? Why not just read, study, and follow the Bible and have an authentic relationship with the Father through Jesus like the Bible tells us to instead of worrying about such silliness as political correctness??? I think this should be a non-issue
    A Christian is a Christain is a Christian, as l long as his/her faith is genuine….
    Where did this ridiculous question come from anyway???

    Dr. Frank is correct. Christians will be persecuted as Jesus rightly foretold it.

    What they should abandon is racism

    The fault lies with the Christian leaders of today. When the term evangelical was associated with Republican views by the media, they did nothing. They did not speak up when the media started calling them out for being hypocrites. Instead they allowed the media to pin the right-wing tag on them without so much as a peep. Now the term, "evangelical" is synonymous with hypocrisy, racism, bigotry and all sorts of wickedness. When evangelicals gave their support to pedophiles, to racist bigots, to those with reprobate minds who were running for political office, they stained the term evangelical. I don't believe that stain can ever be washed away by anything or anyone other than Jesus' return.

    If the mission is to bring people to Jesus then why even mention that you are an Evangelical? You can leave that for another time. But frankly, Christians are getting too political and I feel is corrupting their mission. Jesus didn't mandate us to legislate our faith but to bring them to Christ. Christians and politics is just a modern day occurrence which Christians think they must do to save America. Jesus doesn't care about America, he cares about the people who live in America. Too many Christians romance America as a Christian nation. It isn't and never was.

    Hey Frank, I hope you see this. A few of your videos and many others by other Christians just got deleted all around the same time. This sucks!

    The best thing I ever did was turn off the TV, computer, cellphone, and only read one book…the Bible. It took 5 weeks straight and I didn’t stop when I had a question on something, but read straight through with the eyes of faith and prayer as I went. Without the interruptions, I heard God loud and clear. I must say it wasn’t something I did on my own but was something I felt compelled by the Lord to do. I now know why.

    Since then, I’ve enjoyed reading and studying different genre’s, and understand why it’s taken theologians their whole lives to find the treasures within the Word of God…it’s a beautifully woven cloth provided to us by the Creator Himself.

    Please try it. One doesn’t need to wait to be compelled to do so, but the lack of the interruptions/voices of the world and prayer, are key to hearing and understanding what God has to say to you. God bless! 🕊

    Unfortunately, the terms 'evangelical', 'religious', 'Christian' and other similar labels tend to carry a negative connotation when non-believers hear them. I personally no longer care if it sounds 'offensive' to others if I choose to identify with those labels.

    Welcome to how Catholics feel. Definitions and traditions.. oh so easily misconstrued but focus on Jesus and not what the world thinks.

    I don't call myself Evangelical or even Christian (unless I can explain). The Evangelical leaders, Franklin Graham for example) define the term.
    And…I don't avoid it because of persecution. I avoid it because I don't want to be associated with the people that term represents. That is, people who know more about politics than the Bible

    It would also help to have a more diverse panel,if not you not only risk labels but stereotypes.

    Also atheists out there that watch these videos, you can be curious and do whatever you want to watch these Christian videos, but if you only come here to argue with it, what’s the point. Christians come to watch for a reason, atheists, you only come here just to argue. Just don’t!
