Perhaps it began as greek, or merely as one of those quirks in the
Indo-European family of languages, but it is definetly german in origan,
at least the modern context of it. I reffer to the Evangelist movement in
the U.S. whitch is based off the theological ideas of Walter Rauchenbuch.
The name comes from the idea of a "Social Gospel" first postulated by
Rauchenbuch in an early work whose name escapes me for the moment. But
enough of that.......
