Evangelical or Evangullible?
By Warren B. Smith (3-14-12)

evangelical- in, of, or according to Gospels or the teachings of the New Testament.
gullible- easily tricked.
evangullible- easily tricked by teachers/teachings that seem to be biblical but are not.
With books like Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life, Eugene Peterson's The Message, Leonard Sweet's Quantum Spirituality, and Paul Young's The Shack, what once was an evangelical church has, in a very short period of time, become an "evangullible" church.
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
—2 Timothy 4:2-4
