Regardless of what one thinks of Clinton’s political thumbnail, one must admit it is fairly workable, at least to those of us who prefer to only paint in broad strokes. When one wants to know what the difference is between a confessionalist and an evangelical it might be that, instead of the 60s, Billy Graham could be employed. If you think Billy Graham is mostly a good thing, you’re probably an evangelical. If you think Billy Graham is mostly a bad thing, probably a confessionalist.
More specifically, if you claim him but also think accounts of Calvin such as those marked out recently at Old Life are mostly causes for stumbling and hesitation, you’re probably evangelically Reformed. If you think they are edifying but lament their demise anymore, you’re probably confessionally Reformed.
