I'm not quite sure I follow, deke. When someone says "nondenominational",
they're saying, "We don't belong to a denomination. We are defining
Christianity this way for ourselves." I've never been told by a nondenom
member that I'm not a Christian because I don't adhere to his beliefs. In
fact, I've found that members of large, established Christian denominations
can make statements just as judgemental and obnoxious as anyone else. It
comes down to the person, and making sweeping statements about millions of
people is going to trip you up every time.
