Six People Who Should Be Banned from Evangelicalism?

Martin Luther: Heritic?
I just ran across this post today and found it very interesting.  I am not going to debate whether or not these figures are really evangelicals, but the post does raise some interesting questions about the kind of conversations we have been having here about the definition of "mainstream evangelicalism."

Andy Gill, a student at Princeton Theological Seminary, lists six Christians who are often claimed by evangelicals but uphold doctrines that would place them on the outside of the evangelicalism championed by the very people who claim them.

C.S. Lewis

Martin Luther

St. Augustine

William Barclay

John Stott

Billy Graham

Find out why here.  Is it time for an evangelical magisterium to oust these "heretics?"  A bit of an oxymoron, isn't it?
