Dualism isn’t taught in the bible, we need not to think or talk in binary (2) opposites. It is mainly used to protect an ideology & to discourage critical thinking in indoctrination. A good example of this, is when George Bush after 9/11 declared publicly “Either you are with us or against us” there was no room for neutrality in the war against terrorism. That phrase was to silence the critics that opposed his ideology of war.
“Binary thinking proposes that, if you don’t support ‘the war on terror’, you are a terrorist. Binary opposition thinking proposes that if you don’t support gay marriage, you must be homophobic. Binary opposition thinking proposes that if you don’t support the carbon tax you must be an environmental vandal.“Dr. Robert Long – Expert in social Psychology.
Only God’s Truth is absolute. His Word is Truth. That’s is why Jesus could said that phrase that some men copy (Mussolini, Clinton, Bush). Jesus said: “He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.” Matt.12:30, because Jesus is God & He is the Truth, & He doesn’t make mistakes, but we men do. Follow Jesus & get closer to Him, and you’ll get closer to the truth. He is the Truth that sets us free!
“Dualism can mean the tendency of humans to perceive and understand the world as being divided into two overarching categories. … This form of ontological dualism exists in Taoism and Confucianism, beliefs that divide the universe into the complementary oppositions of yin and yang” … “In theology, dualism can refer to the relationship between God and creation or God and the universe. This form of dualism is a belief shared in certain traditions of Christianity and Hinduism. The dualism between God and creation has existed as a central belief in multiple historical sects and traditions of Christianity, including Catharism, Paulicianism, and Gnostic Christianity.

The “worldview” of Scripture is not global transformation, a term used throughout TTP (The Truth Project)—not, that is, until the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ. ‘The Less Than Truthful Truth Project‘
I consider Freemasonry is a sufficiently organized school of mysticism to be entitled to be called a religion…..I boldly aver that Freemasonry is a religion, yet in no way conflicts with any other religion, unless that religion holds that no one outside its portals can be saved” J.M Ward ‘Freemasonry: Its Aims and Ideals’ p.182, 185, 187
“As some of us prefer to put it, Masonry is not a religion but Religion—not a church but a worship, in which men of all religions may unite” Joseph Fort Newton ‘The Religion of Masonry’ p 10 & 11
“May I once more quote the following source, which I believe sums up the sheer apostasy today:’Freemasonry, far from declining, has been spreading. Most alarming, perhaps, is its penetration deep and wide into the established ‘reformed’ churches and the new ground it is breaking in the Evangelical fellowships of this and other lands” (2 p. 16).So not only has freemasonry infiltrated some of the reformed churches, but according to Adam Weishaupt, the former Jesuit trained Illuminati high priest : “The most wonderful thing of all is that the distinguished Lutheran and Calvinist theologians who belong to our order really believe that they see in it (Illuminati) the true and genuine sense of Christian religion. Oh, mortal man, is there anything you cannot be made to believe? ‘” May I suggest that those who are in reformed churches start asking their pastors and elders whether any of them are practising masons or members of the Illuminati? If the answer comes back yes, may I suggest they run to the nearest exit. And this would have to include all denominations for that matter, for we know that the Vineyard and Southern Baptists have Masonic pastors and elders too.” Freemasonry & their ecumenical friends
According to a tract produced by Concerned Southern Baptists in 1994, twenty-six percent of Southern Baptist men are Masons, and the percentage is even higher among leadership. Masons are also common in other denominations. Freemasons Roots & links to the occult
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” John 17:17 ; “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. ” Jer. 17:7
-Christian Re-constructionism/Dominionism: (Re-constructionists believe that through the application of God’s Laws the earth will be transformed and the Kingdom of God ushered in).
-Covenant/Replacement Theology (The Church replaces Israel)
-A-millennialism (The idea that the millennium isn’t a literal time period)
-CSM (Contemplative Spiritual Mysticism)

What about error? Should we stay silent for the sake of “unity”? If a doctrine or teaching results in the diminishing, cancellation, a different Gospel, or in the distorting of God’s character or His Divinity then we must speak out. Likewise if there is any doctrine or teaching that seeks to put believers under the law or under a yoke of bondage, teaching us to bow to other gods (idols) or to disobey God, we must speak out. The epistles to the Church are full of admonition and instruction and at times, downright rebukes! Jesus purchased for us a new restored life & freedom, they must never be minimized. ” Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.” 1 Cor. 7:23
But the desire to avoid conflict should never deter historical, scientific or biblical scrutiny. Anyone serious about defending his doctrines & beliefs in God most welcome outside inspection, for it is through this examinations that undefiled truth passes the test, while everything else is done with. I know many good people who are atheist, Mormons, Buddhist…. should I shy away from relaying the words of Jesus to a Buddhist simply to avoid a disagreement? From the Bible’s point of view, unity among the multitude of world religions can only be acceptable in God’s eyes when the truth separates those in Jesus Christ & those not. The same can be said concerning the body of Christ. It is God’s desire that His Body be united but never at the expense of His truth. Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Seventh-day Adventist all claim to be in the same body of Christ that evangelical, orthodox Christians claim to be in, but they in fact are not. – Pastor Micah Coate
