Oh, I just meant that I am about the opposite of non-denominational because I'm pretty strongly Lutheran in my theology. I have explored and studied many denominations, and have settled firmly in the Lutheran church. If I were to change churches, I would be seeking another Lutheran church. That's what I meant by "very denominational". Your definition of non-denominational Christian describes my worldview, though. While I have chosen the Lutheran expression of faith for myself, I also recognize that what is best for me may not be for someone else, and that's fine. I think humans are a lot more hung up on theology than God is.
