  1. Evangelism

    Evangelism is the preaching of the Christian Gospel or the practice of relaying information about a particular set of beliefs to others with the object of conversion. The term is not restricted to any particular Christian tradition, and should not be confused with Evangelicalism, a common term for a wide range of "Evangelical" Protestant churches and groups. Christians who specialize in evangelism are often known as evangelists whether they are in their home communities or living as missionaries in the field, although some Christian traditions refer to such people as missionaries in either case. Some Christian traditions consider evangelists to be in a leadership position; they may be found preaching to large meetings or in governance roles. Christian groups who actively encourage evangelism are sometimes known as evangelistic or evangelist. The scriptures do not use the word evangelism, but evangelist is used in Acts 21:8, Ephesians 4:11, and 2 Timothy 4:5. The communication of Christian faith to new geographical areas and cultures is often referred to as evangelization, or specifically, world evangelization.

    Had they relied on privately raised money for that endeavor, I don’t think anybody would’ve had a problem with it, but in fact they sought a variety of tax breaks and special tax incentives from the state of Kentucky and that put it in the position of essentially underwriting evangelism efforts with taxpayer money.
