As I See It

MY Definition of the Phrase ‘Secular Christian’

This was a question posed on a esoteric board. I answered in this way …
Before anyone asks this question , we ALL need to know just what is your definition 
of the phrase “secular christian” as you have used it?

This is not an officially, proper response but I believe secular Christians are those much more “severe” to themselves in the performance of their faith. They revolve around a particular Christian precept difference, maybe only one differing existing, from “mainstream” Christianity.
My example is, just that, an example as a parallel only:
Opus Dei (a life-styled, very severe Ca-thol-ic group whose individual members involve self-punishment they validate in faith. (secular side)
Catholic Church (direct, main avenue to Opus Dei) (church is said to be Christian, or at least part of it is.)
Probably not the answer you expected right off after posting out to us. So … I will welcome anyone with “book” version of explanation.
