Insult or Compliment...?

"The trouble with you Gordon is that you represent more the social action side of things... we need more balance...!"

While being non-dualist within my understanding of mission and not being able to seperate his perceptions of what needs to be balanced - I wasn't sure whether this was meant as a compliment or an insult!

I'm all for being unbalanced...but then, I would say that,wouldn't I? (cackles maniacally ;-))

O for a Teeter-totter view of the world again

Either/Or in the middle

So simple which side are you on

Black or white

Liberal or conservative

Social Action or Jesus Only

What a crock

Need balance?

Balancing what?

Just Salvation in al its forms

Physical Mental Emotional Spiritual

Balance?

What Balance?

If we don't preach salvation of the whole

Is Salvation of the part worth anything?

A good example of the way in which dualisms invite hierarchies.

Whose definition of balance wins?
