I have never understood the term “evangelical” Christian. Aren’t all Christians called by the great commission to be evangelical? I think it is used as a slur.
No, it's not a slur. All Christians are not evangelicals. There are mainline churches, there are Catholic and orthodox churches, then there are evangelicals.
Definition: belonging to or designating the Christian churches that emphasize the teachings and authority of the Scriptures, especially of the New Testament, in opposition to the institutional authority of the church itself, and that stress as paramount the tenet that salvation is achieved by personal conversion to faith in the atonement of Christ.
Right you are. And that is why it begins with a lower-case letter. It’s a movement of the spirit, and anyone can be one if he so chooses.
Same is true for “born-again Christians.” We are told in John Chapter 3 that we all must be born again.
We are so sect-minded that we make everything into a sect. If we are to be “all one in Christ Jesus,” then all Christians must be both of these things—evangelical and born again.
