Evangelical Quotations

For a while... to be an evangelical meant you were a white Republican, and you were against this and against that. I don't want to be put into that mold, because then people judge you before they even listen... I don't want to divide the very people I am trying to reach.
Joel Osteen

If you'd have said Evangelical in 1957, most people wouldn't know what you were talking about. And then, they'd be against it.
Billy Graham

I'm grateful for the evangelical resurgence we've seen across the world in the last half-century or so. It truly has been God's doing.
Billy Graham

The evangelical movement has become just a bit victimized by a success-oriented culture, wanting the church - like the corporation - to be successful.
Henri Nouwen

Those issues are biblical issues: to care for the sick, to feed the hungry, to stand up for the oppressed. I contend that if the evangelical community became more biblical, everything would change.
Tony Campolo
