Dualisms and Empire

"The poem of Colossians 1:15-20 has the potential not only to set our imagination free from the captivity of empire but also to shatter the way our dualism has restricted our faith. A split-vision worldview that divides faith from life, church from culture, theology from economics, prayer from politics and worship from everyday work will always render Christian faith irrelevant to broad sociocultural forces."

-- Walsh, Brain J. and Keesmaat, Sylvia C., Colossians Remixed, (Illinois: IVP, 2004), p. 95
