While I am usually not fond of football metaphors, I must admit that the picture I imagine of Evangelical making an end-run around the Bible is vivid. "Utterly condemned" seems a bit harsh. Are you comfortable with the "lest ye be judged" clause, in Jesus's pronouncement on the matter? There does seem to be a relationship between calling on the Lord and the Spirit in the New Testament. But,as I recall, it became a rather dry and mechanical practice in the local churches. Now I realize I'm talking about my own subjective experience. But where the spirit is concerned, what else is there?
