When speaking with other Christians, and when the term orthodox biblical Christianity is what we hold to, what is meant by biblical Christianity?.. They will claim that they hold to the bible and are biblical, what is the best way to make this clear to them?

Rather than taking several years to exegete myriad passages of Scripture to establish the core doctrines of Christianity, which we call and insist is what is known as "Calvinism", aka: The Reformed Faith. I simply point out that ALL of the Protestant Confessions and Catechisms which were produced by the major denominations during and after the Reformation were in indisputable agreement on them. Some, e.g., The Canons of Dordt rejected all forms of Arminianism and by default, semi-Pelagianism, etc. and provided the biblical truth in their refutations.

Saying you believe in the Bible; its inspiration, infallibility, inerrancy and supreme authority isn't enough. The question is, "What does that God-breathed book teach?" grin
