Unacceptable Dualisms

Douglas Wilson writes:

… in order to reject these unacceptable dualisms, we must insist upon a biblical and absolutely necessary dualism — the antithesis between faith and unbelief, the antithesis between the heart that has been born again and the heart that has not been. This is because unbelief is the font of all the other problems. To therefore blur the distinction between the unconverted heart (whether within the covenant or outside it) is necessarily to enshrine a host of other hopeless dualism in the practice of the Church. It is to put death in the pot.

So this is why we have unbelieving dualisms streaming from today’s pulpits. This is why we have dualism in our baptismal practices. This is why dualism and confusion abound in wedding ceremonies. This is why we cannot be brought to admit that Jesus Christ is Lord over all pluralist societies. This is why we think the Old Testament and New Testament are strangers to one another.
