Reformed Cultural Stoicism
a.k.a. the "Two-Kingdom View of Culture" espoused by Lutherans and an increasing number of Reformed folk.

In the interest of fairness, I provide a link to a site with large number of sources on this point of view.

I am utterly baffled by the attraction of this view of culture. Why limit God's sovereinty and grace in this way? Why limit the transformative power of the gospel?

Such a view is really no different (functionally) from the position of the world-flight Dispensationalists. And we can all see the cultural mess they have left behind.
