  • “Christian” covers “Catholic,” like the Galatians text you cite. I don’t say I am “Protestant” or “Presbyterian,” unless specifically asked which church I attend or the bend of my theology. I prefer to identify with Christ as opposed to a man made sect (because Christ is not divided), whether that sect be Catholicism or Protestantism or any subdivision thereof.
