R. Scott Clark on Catholics, Evangelicals, and Rome

While we are on the subject of "Evangelicalism," R. Scott Clark has recently reposted a couple of articles on the issue of Catholics, Evangelicals, and Rome. Article 1 (link) notes that we should not cede the title of "Catholics" to the sect of Roman Catholics, nor the term "Evangelicals" to the broadly evangelical movement. He does not mention it, that I recall, but we also should not cede the title "Orthodox" to the sect(s) of the Eastern Orthodox. Article 2 (link) continues the discussion, getting deeper into the history, and exploring how the use of "Evangelical" (as well as "Catholic") has evolved over time.
