    But DO Charismatics count as Evangelicals? Do other evangelicals think so, too?

    My analysis: Subcultural pop fiction is about the only non-political way to achieve some form of theological coherence within the low-church end of Protestantism. Lots easier to update than Elizabethan English prayer books, too.

    PS All you dweebs who are trying to hobby-farm your way into self-fulfillment: I mean, I get it. I should know better than to romanticize farming, but it still has a sentimental pull on my heartstrings, but fortunately most of the cool parts you can still do in your suburban backyard or gardenshare plot. There are heaploads of books about sub/urban farming. Tho canning still sucks. (Pro-tip: Do your boiling on a hot plate OUTSIDE. Your a/c will thank you.) Butchering sucks. Chickens are cannibals.
    Any perks of rural life IMO are pretty much outweighed by the horrible inconvenience and emotionally crippling isolation.

    I’m not charismatic. And yes, they do count. Many are not just evangelicals but biblical Christians.

      Extra Thought: CS Lewis reintroduced all this (Neo) Platonism (or at least insofar as the real being a reflection of the Ideal), but besides from some massaged verses from Thessalonians or whatever, there’s not much biblical about the idea. But then we’ve been scavenging from Greek philosophies for about as long as Christianity was invented, like Stoicism.

      But my monkey wrench in the thought experiment is that the Ideal is a social construct, like money or social class. So do you still want to retain the Neo Platonism and why?

What say you?
