** I never hear of A POP CATHOLIC******
Would any purpose be served in once again pointing out that I am NOT a Roman Catholic and NEVER HAVE BEEN?

StrongAxe is using "pop evangelical" in EXACTLY the sense I mean it.
Thank, you, StrongAxe! :-)

Even though Jack is the person I know who uses this term most, web searches show that many others use it.
The distinction is between "true Evangelicals" who believe in evangelical traditions according to well-established Christian tradition laid down over two thousand years, vs. superficial modern right-wing "popular" Christian culture rooted in media televanglists and popular Christian books, but with little spiritual grounding or depth.

Tax Exempt. Pop-evangelists are tax exempt status, living large and super charged. Your card, your dollar.

Here on this blogs we have people who are filled with the Holy Spirit and people who have no knowledge whatsoever concerning the spirit. For example, we have people who do not understand the words saved, born-again, and other spirit filled terminology even though these words are plainly written in Scripture. Many of those who do not understand anything of the spirit seemed to resent any spiritual knowledge. The scriptures plainly say, "lean not on your own(fleshly) understanding".

'pop evangelist' I think refers to tent revival-type fundamentalist seen on TV, the televangelist. Shallow, noney grubbers, woman with gawdy hairdos, shallow theology, etc. All what Sinclair Lewis wrote about.
It is the common demomenator of protestantism.
The price of freedom of religion is putting up with a lot of junk, a price I am willing to pay.

I've never used the term but I would think it means someone who is more of an entertainer than a preacher of the real Gospel. Someone made an interesting observation a while back. He told me that, in general, most of the TV preachers were frauds and most of the radio preachers were men of God. Any thoughts?

A pop-evangelist will be best explained by the terms creator, Jack. My perception of a pop-evangelist is the post-modern chrisitian. The TV evangelist type that preach a message of, "Accept Jesus into your heart, come down for the altal call, Jesus is just some type of genie in a bottle that is their to do your bidding," types. The Laodicean church, if you will.
