Rise of French evangelicals puts secularism in a spin
From a postwar population of about 50,000, French evangelicals are now estimated to number 450,000 to 500,000. According to the Evangelical Federation of France, the number of churches has risen from 800 in 1970 to more than 2200 today.

Last week, the boom made headlines when thousands of evangelicals descended on Strasbourg to turn the 500th anniversary of Calvin's birth into a huge media-covered event.

On paper, France would seem one of the least likely places for this branch of Christianity to gain a foothold. For centuries, Protestantism was the embattled minority in a country Catholics liked to call the ''eldest daughter of the church'' because of its strong ties to Rome. That minority still makes up just 3 per cent of the population. ...

Neil, oh, I have no doubt that the commentator and the French government have a slanted view about Protestants, probably because of past experience with What's a Huguenot? (One of my ancestors was one!) They were wronged of course, but still mixing politics and religion is not the The Truth Behind The Church's Purpose. Or as some of the Scripture used in the sermon, The Believer and Politics points out.

Romans 13
1 Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.
2 Therefore he who resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.---NASB

But as the article on the Huguenots points out, many of the kings of France were a terror to their own subjects.

No anger here. Tincq, as a "religious commentator," may have a bias that would render his testimony suspect - one would expect the French establishment to fear even the remotest possibility of political influence by evangelicals. In any case, "creeping up the agenda" is not saying that French evangelicals are in "Moral Majority" mode.

But ideas do have consequences, nes pas?

What Neil, you never misread anything!

from the article, "Henri Tincq, a religious commentator, said issues such as abortion and homosexuality were creeping up the agenda." [for the Evangelicals] and the end of the article hinted that, but considering the article had strongly hinted where's there's smoke there's fire you can see the interpretation that I put upon it.

Ecclesiastes 7
8 The end of a matter is better than its beginning; Patience of spirit is better than haughtiness of spirit.
9 Do not be eager in your heart to be angry, For anger resides in the bosom of fools.---NASB

but of course, I assume you were just irritated and not angry, so I'm properly chastised.

Where does the article say French evangelicals are getting involved in politics?

Certain Nebraskans, who frequently opine here about sodomy in political contexts (see Maine gay-marriage comments), seem to have the same weakness for attacking symptoms.

Apparently these French Christians are having the same problem as some American churches, thinking about mixing politics and Christianity. Response to Human Government. They are also having a hard time from attacking symptoms such as Homosexuality or abortion, rather than its cause a rejection of God.

Romans 1
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.---NASB.

They need to be put on the The Roman Road.
