Madeline Albright is an Exceptional Evangelist…Just Not for Christianity
Evangelism is one of the few words in the English language that features an antiquated connotation.
When people hear the word evangelism, they typically think of a fanatical born-again Christian. The Wikipedia entry for the term describes the practice as having the stated “intention of converting others to the Christian faith.” Miriam-Webster defines evangelism as “the winning or revival of personal commitments to Christ.”
Historically, these descriptions have been true; however, they are quickly becoming obsolete in our current culture. The powerful influence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has essentially been relegated within the four walls of the church. None of our cultural institutions prominently consult the Bible when exercising judgment. In fact, the Oklahoma courts were instructed to remove the Ten Commandments statue during the summer of 2015.
Yet we continue to exclusively associate evangelism with Christianity. This is absurd. Where is this Christian evangelism about which Wikipedia and Miriam-Webster speak?
The foremost definition of the word "evangelism" is actually buried at the end of its dictionary entry.
Evangelism is the zealous advocacy of a cause, often one that features a militant or crusading fervor.
If you want to look for a modern day evangelist, look no further than Madeline Albright...
