"Lutheran" as a Reformed Insult

I know this is an overgeneralization, but it is sort of funny: The Federal Vision guys in the PCA accuse the anti-Federal Vision guys of having a Lutheran conception of faith and works. The anti-Federal Vision guys in the PCA accuse the Federal Vision guys of having a Lutheran conception of the sacraments.

While I'm unsure that either group is really Lutheran on either score, I'd nonetheless suggest that they all become Lutherans, because that way they can have both together. Of course, they use "Lutheran" as an accusation because, if you're Reformed, I guess you don't want to be Lutheran on either score.

That's because in the PCA to be "Reformed" really means to be "Baptist" and to accuse someone of being "Lutheran" means something like "almost Roman Catholic." :-)
