Thirdly, I wonder if behind the answer is the assumption that it is actually possible just to be a generic ‘unflavoured’ Christian. We don’t like to think of ourselves as a particular ‘kind’ of Christian. And that’s an appealing assumption – partly because we rightly want to emphasise the central truths of Christianity (I’ll come to that), but also because of the relativism of our culture which would rather brush all differences of opinion under the carpet. It’s just easier to pretend we don’t belong to a particular ‘strand’ or ‘tradition’ of Christianity. The problem is, it’s simply not true!
