When Christians say they’re going for a swim, it might mean they’re thinking of switching denominations.
You’ve no doubt heard of Episcopalians. But have you heard of Whiskeypalians?
More “blended denominations”! In the last 50 years, Christians have felt more and more free to move between denominations. Sometimes these folks make up new denomination names to describe their colorful church background!

All the salvation with half the guilt! It’s what some people call “Christianity lite.”
You’ve probably heard the term “cradle Catholic,” but did you realize that Protestants use the “cradle” combinations too? Check out “cradle Christian” and more.
When is the Pope not the Pope? And when is the Vatican not the Vatican? Answer: When we’re talking about the Protestant pope and the evangelical pope, or the Protestant vatican and the evangelical vatican. Thoroughly confused yet?

With Thanksgiving around the corner, the weather will soon be chilly (if it isn’t already in your part of the country). It’s the perfect season to think about God’s “frozen chosen.”
