Not To Mention the Christians Who Ape Them

“So the antithesis is a given. But because it is, some will always try to misplace the antithesis. In other words, they affirm it in principle but misapply it in practice. Misplacing it is really the first of two basic ways to try to get away from this antithesis between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman, between faith and unbelief, between covenant-keepers and covenant-breakers. People misplace the antithesis by affirming the fundamental divide between good and evil but then misdrawing the lines of that divide. The lines are thought to be tribal or racial or political. Misplacing the antithesis is the besetting sin of secular conservatives” (The Case for Classical Christian Education, p. 98).
