(Barna explained that this was because a majority of the category was comprised of individuals associated with congregations not part of the United Church of Christ cluster, which tends to have very liberal interpretations of Scripture.) Churches that have the lowest proportion of adherents meeting the evangelical criteria were the Catholic, Episcopal, and Mormon churches, each of which has just 1% of its people in this category.

All too often, we look to the teachings of respected men to live by, when we should COMPARE what they are teaching with the Word of God. The obvious immorality of recantation against conscience (for which one should be dammed). Those working with college students report that students from Holiness colleges respond more quickly to "discipleship" demands than some "evangelicals" who are more conditioned to responding with verbalization or doctrinal formulation.

On 18 July 2006, delegates to the World Methodist Conference voted unanimously to adopt the Joint Declaration. [200] [201] Countries by percentage of Protestants. It has ever since been the problem of Protestantism to reconcile the freedom of the world of man, and of the Church, with God's revelation, and to assign to the conscience its proper function as guide of conduct and belief when enlightened by the Gospel, or the law of Christ. Its earliest form was first agreed on by the overwhelming majority of hundreds of bishops who met in Nicaea in what is now Turkey in 325, and later expanded upon in 381 in Constantinople and confirmed in Chalcedon in 451.

During the Great Schism, Wycliffe taught that the true Church of Christ, rather than consisting of the pope and church hierarchy, is the invisible body of the elect.
