In spite of my poking his eye for being jaded, I think Joe Carter is onto something.

And here’s my one-liner for the discussion so far: I see politics (not necessarily Government, but what we do as politics) as overt legalism, which is a minimalistic approach to the trouble in this world, no matter how many whirligigs you put on it; the Gospel is greater than Law and is therefore a comprehensive approach to all the trouble in the world.

And when I say it that way, I sound more like Doug Wilson that I probably want to let on. And no I didn’t baptize any babies.
