Either you're being ironic (in which case, congratulations for such a 
clever pun!) or you're feeling just as frustrated as I.  We should avoid 
labels, it is true, but we do need terms and definitions so we know what 
we're talking about.

Over on Scott Adams' site and in his Dilbert Newsletter, he refers to 
dull-witted people as "inDUHviduals."  We obviously need some similar 
term for those who stubbornly refuse the fullness, preferring to pick 
and choose from the Gospel and commandments, but who are still good and 
fine people.  "Terrestial" may be the best term we have (the Lord 
certainly doesn't seem shy about using the term) but it sure sounds 
condescending.  (The Lord is permitted to sound condescending because, 
let's face it, he's pretty darned superior to us.)

"Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you 
are doing the impossible."
