I appreciated your editorial, “True Evangelical Faith” (Jan. 1), but I wonder if your readers understand the difference between modern evangelical faith and true evangelical faith as understood by Menno Simons. To me, the foundation of modern evangelical faith is a series of faith statements (see evananetwork.org/cof), and these faith statements are used to draw lines of separation between congregations and people. I would hope these statements of faith are there to help us express our faith rather than separate us. The foundation of true evangelical faith as understood by Menno Simons is a person, Jesus Christ.
