At the always marvellous Auburn Avenue Pastor’s Conference this past week the inimitable Douglas Wilson complained that he is tired of hearing of the need to get out of the box. He said that some people need to stay in the box. Indeed.
Who can disagree? The so-called “Federal Vision” controversy showed that a lot of people are stuck in tetrahedra and could use a few more facets. If they could get out of mere four-sided thinking into something more, like a six-sided box, that would be good. For those of us more mature in our understanding, it might be good to try to think outside the dodecahedron and begin to think in the icosahedron.
There is more in heaven and earth than is dreamt of in pseudo-traditionalist “Reformed” thought.
