Evangelicalism Minimizes the Evangel

One of the saddest ironies in American Evangelicalism today is how strongly its leaders profess that the Bible is the very word of God—inspired, inerrant and infallible—yet how little of the Bible they actually preach or teach.  I suspect that a major cause of biblical illiteracy among American Christians is that the Bible has been replaced in America’s pulpits with popular topics and church programs.  Sometimes it seems that Evangelicals can hear anything but the Bible in church.
