Oh, I had a few inquiries on my theological epiphany that I referenced earlier this week.Â I was going to make a separate post about it but realized I could easily sum it all up, and it may just be something that is already glaringly obvious to others.Â I thought Evangelicals and Protestants were an interchangeable term, but it turns out I was totally wrong.Â Now I know all Christians are called to “evangelize” but I’m referring to the classification or group of people called Evangelicals.Â Protestants, from my understanding can be classified either as Evangelical or Mainline Protestant.Â Evangelicals are more conservative regarding theology (and politically) and Mainline Protestants are more liberal in that sense.Â I’m super paraphrasing here, but that’s the gist of my epiphany.Â All of this started when I read an article that mentioned that Methodists are not Evangelicals (which of course I thought otherwise at the time), which lead me to research the topic and consult with some of my pastoral friends which lead me to a Wikipedia article where the epiphony hit me.Â The last paragraph of this section of the article helped clear it up for me as it clarifies a few denominations and where they fit.Â I guess In the grand scheme of things classification doesn’t matter, but for me I realized I was a Mainline Protestant and never knew it, and have nothing to be ashamed about regarding my theological views as I’ve been previously told.Â This square peg has been trying to fit into a round hole for way too long now.
I think it’s funny I started that last point with “I could easily sum it all up.”Â It got a little lengthy.Â At one point I was going to stop and just create a separate post, but I was on a roll and press for time to do such a thing.
I wouldn’t be surprised my readers who are either Biblical scholars or in the ministry will leave a comment or two on this subject matter.

It cracks me up when females refer to their female friends as girlfriends.Â I have never heard of a guy refer to another dude as a boyfriend in conversation.
With that said . . . it appears that my blogfriend Kevin from Philadelphia is stuck in a bit of a conundrum.Â You will see in the title of his blog that he states, “Blogging until a championship . . .”Â The world waits to see what happens should the Phillies win the World Series.

I get a kick out of some of the names people use when leaving a comment.
The local news are touting all their ‘local’ Emmys as of late.Â I guess they are directly related to the real Emmys, but with every station touting their awards they must not be too hard to get.Â Even Gordon Keith got one for his show on WFAA.
I wonder if my daily readers read from the top post down, or do they scroll down and read up from the last post they read.
I had some interesting communication regarding the whole shoe resoling.Â Other than cowboys around here, I think it’s an income and generational thing.Â Thankfully with my current dress code policy I don’t have to worry about nice dress shoes for a while.Â However, I think I want to examine a pair of shoes that could be resoled, and would like to know a price of those kind of shoes.Â Can any dress shoe be resoled?
I’ve never been much of a biscuit fan, but I love me some rolls.

I use to be able to do a ‘clean twist’ of an Oreo cookie, but not anymore.Â I don’t think it’s me, I think the cookie is different.Â But I can do a ‘clean twist’ off a Double Stuff Oreo.
I love me some SNL on Thursday nights – they really bring their A game, and it’s cool to see SNL Alumni come back for a skit or two.Â Will Farrell came back as George W last night and endorsed McCain in case you missed it.
At this particular moment I see I actually had 18 comments on a post yesterday in response to my question.Â It good to know I have at least 18 visitors. 😉
