An article appeared this week in The Washington Post by Dr Michael Horton and is well worth a read:

Evangelicals should be deeply troubled by Donald Trump’s attempt to mainstream heresy

Dr Horton concludes:

But it is striking that Trump has surrounded himself with cadre of prosperity evangelists who cheerfully attack basic Christian doctrines. The focus of this unity is a gospel that is about as diametrically opposed to the biblical one as you can imagine.

Since “evangelical” comes from the word “gospel,” that should make more of a difference to those who wear the label than it does at the moment.  It doesn’t offend anyone (but picky Christians). It tells us everything we want to hear and nothing that we need to hear most.
