One Rabbit Covers Three Buckets

Douglas Wilson has pulled another rabbit out of his hat of rhetorical tricks, when he managed to describe the Federal Vision as a potpourri of Reformed distinctives held by various camps at various times, over at De Regno Christi in a post called “The Combination.”

The post deserves high marks for evasive creativity; however, Wilson missed the primary ingredient in Federal Vision and, sadly, no one called him on it. Of course I refer to the three bucket loads of Arminianism when the Federal Visionists describe their view of election and perseverance.

As I said, too bad no one called him on it.
