Does Reformed Christianity imply political conservatism? Does the doctrine of Two Kingdoms promote liberty for the Christian in all areas of cultural participation except in the arena of politics, where one must always prostrate oneself before the right hand lest their commitment to orthodoxy be questioned? I, for one, hope not, both because of my distaste for ideological hegemony and my own political convictions.
Liberty as an ideal is highly prized, it just seems that for some, the practice itself is foreign. The question then, as asked over at Creed Code Cult and which I echo, is if we can affirm the freedom of belief in areas where there is not clear scriptural assessment or command, can we actually take it from head to feet and DO what we say.
