    >>Indeed, the mark of an evangelical in many quarters is belief in a
    totally inerrant Bible. This was a major part of the hassle in Missouri
    Synod some time back, for example. Not all are YEC. Some give a
    concordist interpretation to Genesis 1f to produce OEC. But they are
    probably not the kind of evangelical you commonly meet in United
    Methodist and Presbyterian Church USA.>.

    Davis, in his book "The Debate About the Bible" (see my notes on it at
    claims the "evangelical" label for himself although he rejects inerrancy.
    When I was Southern baptist (1976-1987) I know we claimed the term,
    although generally agreeing with Davis. Not "YEC" of course, although
    that position was not rejected among us.

    I suppose I have always included a lot of folks under that label that
    might well not claim it.

    Am I one? I think so. But how the label gets used by others is clearly a
    factor in that claim.
