Lewis was Anglican. Anglicanism is a Protestant denomination but not an evangelical one. Evangelicalism is a subset of Protestantism is a subset of Christianity.

John Wesley was an Anglican minister and always considered himself an Anglican, but he sought to reform the church from the inside with the movement started by his followers who called themselves "Methodists". He never intended it to become an independent denomination.

Jehovah's Witnesses are not Christians. As much as they say they are about Jesus, they couldn't be further away.

well, all Christians are pretty far away from Jesus and the 12 Apostles. Jehovah's Witnesses aren't really any further away than Baptists, Catholics, Anglicans or Calvinists. They are Christian. In that they self-identify as Christian and worship Jesus Christ which gives them as much credibility as anyone else. and they're definitely into evangelizing- in fact they're notorious for it.

"all Christians are pretty far away from Jesus and the 12 Apostles". So you know all Christians? You don't think individual Christians can have a relationship with Jesus?

Joey, I think the point he was trying to make is that each sect of Christianity has, over time, strayed from the teachings of Jesus in certain respects. Some more so than others and that no sect of Christianity is better than another. I don't think he was speaking of an individual's relationship with Jesus. In some respects, those who have an individual relationship with Jesus without a church establishment around it have a more wholly (pun intended) understanding of His teachings as they are forced to read the gospels on their own and make their own interpretations rather than adhere to the interpretations provided for them.

Have to agree about the Jehovah's Witness thing. Even if you claim they are Christian, I've never heard them referred to as Evangelical Christians (even among Jehovah's Witnesses).

It's true that this is rare. But the quiz seems to be using the term a little more broadly than most.

Can you please accept "Dr. King" for "Martin Luther King Jr.?" Also, if you are a Jehovah's Witness, you are not a Christian.

Well they consider themselves Christian, so it's your word against theirs. I suspect we won't get God coming down to provide some clarity anytime soon.

Jehovah's Witnesses are Christians in the sense that they believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah. But you can tell from their very name JEHOVAH's Witnesses, to whom they owe their fealty.

Jehovah? You mean the Hebrew air god that later fathered himself so that he could sacrifice himself to himself to appease himself and forgive all of us for being the way he made us, and is according to your mythology one and the same with Jesus Christ? Thanks for clearing that up, then.

This quiz should be called "famous religious people" or something. Jehovahs Witnesses are no more evangelical than the Pope is. A number of the people on the list would be surprised to see themselves described as Evangelicals, including MLK who died before the term was even in common use.

How are Jerry Falwell (x2) and Jimmy Swaggart not on here? They are definitely among the most famous Evangelical Christians out there.
