[ee-van-sin-i-kuh l]

Noun, plural evancynicals

1. Christians of Evangelical background no longer attending church on the grounds that they have been “burned” too many times by prior church experience. While still claiming the Christian faith, they have allowed their knowledge of Biblical truth to atrophy such that their speech, behavior, and lifestyles differ very little (or not at all) from society at large. Evancynicals are very critical of other Evancynicals and engage each other in vicious debate over the Internet via social media. They could have a discussion in person, however they have abandoned meeting together (as they are in the habit of doing).

2. The “scoffers” of Psalms 1.

3. The “clanging cymbals” of 1 Corinthians 13.
