I'd like to know if that happens too in other countries: here at the subway is not difficult to find evangelists -in the train, which is forbidden- telling with a Bible in the hand BS about Abel Jesus' second coming, that Mary (that bad copy of Asherah and Isis) does not bring salvation, nor nuns (Catholic country), eternal life (yeah, have they thought what is really eternity?. Dunno).-- (talk) 21:32, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

According to Wikipedia, Evangelicalism is a "a worldwide, transdenominational movement within Protestant Christianity", and it contains subsections from around the world. I wouldn't be surprised if there is similar behavior at other subways due to the sheer amount of people worldwide, but perhaps its ubiquity will vary through countries. But I guess you can't totally escape it wherever you go. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 21:44, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
I had my issues with two of these who attempted with me that. Long history short, don't mess with someone capable to read and understand an University-level book (yes, there's people who reads those things) about galaxies and cosmology, is not interested in that kind of "eternal life", and has bothered to read -here- "the Book" and knows its background or you may have your beliefs contested with arguments and end feeling sorry for him (just in case no violence of any kind or shouting, etc.). Years ago was one JW who came with the same (pity I was off-guard and could not give him a well-reasoned reply, nor had time to listen him).
Next time I think I'm gonna troll them with any of those fictional deities of Dungeons and Dragons and the like --Panzerfaust (talk) 01:43, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
BONUS TRACK. I've found a pair of evangelical radio stations, and woo hoy, they're quite useful to test the workings of the anti-stupidity circuits -gems as negating Evolution, talking about the NWO, and of course always the Second Coming is near, everything bad is caused by the Devil ("Enemy" for them), and begging for money-. It does not help either the existence of someone batshit crazy who each SamainHalloween and Carnival puts photocopies on bus stops telling those are Satanic festivities --Panzerfaust (talk) 23:44, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Not to act like a conspiracy theorist, but...[edit]

"Evangelist" is an anagram of "evil's agent". Coincidence? Christopher (talk) 12:44, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Some history perhaps[edit]

The history of Evangelicalism deserves a lot more attention in this article. From John Wesley in GB to Francis Asbury in America, Charles Grandison Finney, Dwight Moody, Billy Sunday, Billy Graham, Jerry Falwell Jr. The Baptists and the Methodists need some attention. The far-right lives somewhere in their vicinity.Ariel31459 (talk) 23:02, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
