Ok, we ought not be given to over-statement. And, being the second most uninterested North American male in athletics, I am loathe to make sports analogies.
While I can’t help but like the Vosian observation that pre- and post-mill views are two sides of the same skewed coin, I am still a bit more warm to finding forms of theonomy (hard and soft) to be versions of Cross-as-kick-off-prosperity-gospel. Some forms come in cheesy comb-overs on TV, while others come in sober, well-read intelliegentsia. For some it’s about personal health-and-wealth, for others institutional health-and-wealth. Then there’s everything in between for those a bit scanadalized by the cheesy comb-over or scared by the ominous leering of Rushdooney (man, that guy petrifies me just looking at him).
Are there really raised hands after, “For those in Christ, the sting of death has been removed but death has not”? What isn’t understood here? Everybody dies. If we are still subject to something as undeniable as death, what makes anyone think life in this age is all that different for those who have faith?
