The global village becomes a town – a pair talks with one another via instant messaging; silent communication, even though they're mere feet from one another.  In actuality, all pretence of communication has dropped with the loss of need: interaction is now presentation.

Agnostic: A/gnosis; without knowledge... properly: without Knowledge and “a/Gnostic”.  To claim:
        -  The inexistence of an absolute: of any absolute a priori
        -  The consequential loss of indisputable and unshakable foundations
        -  A 'radical relativism' and an openness to new definitions and understandings of truth
        -  "Truth" as a phenomenological construct and an ongoing process
        -
  a/Gnosis as a constructive state, and a benefit to those who embrace it

Christian – Neither specifically subservient to the often-esteemed “teachings of Jesus” nor an idealization of a Christ-like life: historical, traditional, finding basis within, being preceded by... not in submission to that which has been metaphysically suspended as Christianity, but rather its internal redefinition.  This represents:
        -  An outright challenge to the interpretive prerogative those who call themselves "Christian" claim
        -  Biblical interpretation through discord: a move away from the "harmonious Scriptures"
        -  A recognition of many different, conflicting ideologies within the Bible
        -  A conscious decision to retain one's textual background: here, Christianity 

Reformed – Having taken that which was and created that which is: the ongoing process of reformation: the reformed church that is truly always reforming.  This manifests itself as:
        -  An openness to that which undermines our interpretations
        -  An active will towards rebuilding one's interpretive structure: nihilism is a means, never an end.
        -  The process by which a/Gnosis (the lack of an absolute foundation) is reconciled to belief.

If you spend any amount of time at church services, you'll soon discover most of the messages centre around apologies for God or Christ, in that every attempt is to absolve them (Him?  Damn Trinitarian doctrine) of any kind of blame, and furthermore to interpret the passage in a manner that elevates Christ/God Almighty.
