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.

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.   Wikipedia.
My note: According to the writings of Irenaeus, ‘Against Heresies‘, Simon Magus (Acts 8:9-24) is identified as the source of Gnosticism.
 Binary opposites are taught and practiced by postmodernists. Also Satanist teach dualism or binary opposites. The satanic idol Baphomet worshiped by Knight Templars & others, it is said that contains binary elements representing the “sum total of the universe” (e.g. Above and below, male and female, good and evil, etc.).

It is true that sometimes we need to make a decision between 2 opposite choices, the problem is when the 2 opposite divisions are taken to an extreme, to the point that distorts real life.  e.g. Are not Jewish closer to the truth than atheists?, Isn’t true that satan mixes lies with truth?  He did it at the garden & also when tempting our Lord Jesus in the wilderness. Then not everything in the world is black & white or binary opposites. World-view should reflect reality and in reality the world is full of proportional or objective & subjective truths, so there are many shades of gray. In this world we have truth mixed with lies or errors in different proportions. Only God & His Word is Truth with out error.

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

We also found some concerns from Christians about the lessons. Example lesson 8 of the Truth Project, where Tackett mentions words that are not found in the bible, but that are commonly used in Kabbalah & new age circles like: Oneness & Unio Mystica See definition of unio mystica
Also Lesson 10, ‘America the Great Experiment’, happens to be a well known Masonic phrase with an interesting story behind it.  See:  The Great Experiment.

 -The words : Cosmos, framework, metamorphosis, Veritas, truth, oneness, Unio Mystica, etc. as well as dualism, philosophy, gnosticism and Kabbalah are all taught as well in Masonic doctrine. Also Masonry is ecumenical, they are all-deity inclusive.

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

Mr. Tackett invited experts whom most of them signed theManhattan declaration‘, an ecumenical document that doesn’t define the gospel clearly and that states repeatedly that all who signed, Catholics, Eastern Orthodox & Evangelicals all preach the same gospel and are part of the same body of Christ.

James Dobson, a Psychologist, founder of Focus in the Family (Del Tackett’s boss), signed the ‘Manhattan declaration’. He is a Dominionist, ecumenical & public friend of many Masons.
-Ravi Zacharias, Ecumenical speaks often in Mormon temples and tells them Jesus is preparing a place for them in heaven. Also see The evils of ecumenism.  Zacharias considers Catholics followers of Jesus Christ, with some doctrinal differences. He proclaimed Catholic mystic Henri Nowen as one of the greatest Christian saints, he also praises Joyce Meyers, etc.
Gordon Pennington, works with ecumenical & Knight of Malta Rick Joyner at Morning Star Church and at his Oak Initiative.  A businessman, he has spoken at the White House on cultural issues, is the former director of marketing for Tommy Hilfiger, Gordon Pennington is an international consultant to corporations, governments and institutions. He’s the founder of  Burning Media Group.
-Catholic priest Robert Sirico, worked on the editorial committee of the Manhattan Declaration & also signed it. Father Robert Sirico is a very controversial gay right activist, he served once as a Pentecostal preacher, and was a minister for the Metropolitan Community Church, a non-denominational church standing up for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people (LGBT). Metropolitan Community Church has been a leading force in the development of Queer theology.  He is founder and president of Acton Institute.

It’s really hard to believe that using all of these Masonic symbolism & Gnostic concepts (& more of them that I don’t mention here) to teach truth was just a coincidence. I think Mr. Tackett could be sincere & he is convinced of  what he believes, (& like I always advice, we  should pray for him, we all need prayers), but we also need to be aware that unfortunately there are many men in positions of church leadership that practice both Christianity & Masonry without discerning any incompatibility between them.

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

We can’t believe or accept everything that is told to us, only because the person seems nice or is a good teacher, we need to try the spirits and like the good Bereans compare everything that is taught, with the Word of God.  We need to be careful and work hard to maintain the sound doctrine as it was given to us by the Scriptures, especially in this times of apostasy.  It is important to study well the Bible and ask our precious Lord Jesus for wisdom & discernment through His Holy Spirit.

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

Our advice, not because we think we are better, but because we have learned from our mistakes, is that we have to learn to put our trust in God alone & not men.  We need to learn to feed ourselves directly from the source, the Bible, the Pure Word of God & try the spirits weather they are of God.

All these DVD series, books, etc. that are for sale on Christian churches, are just men interpretations & there are so many of them, and many of them could be wrong, this will just bring confusion to the church. Only the pure Word of God is the Truth we can trust, but we need to know it well, because there are some authors who unknowingly have a lot of doctrinal errors and also there are some others that work hard to twist the Word of God for their personal agenda.
When truth is mixed with errors, the latter corrupts the whole message. I like to compare it to a glass of pure & clean water (God’s Word) that someone mixes with contaminated water.  I wouldn’t drink it. . . why do it if I have the clean & pure water still available?

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

But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. Rev. 2:25

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
Wouldn’t you clean from weeds a plant that is growing so it can grow stronger & yield good fruit?  Still there are some that want to make us believe it is better to leave the weeds & thorns that choke the Word of God, so we can have unity & avoid controversy.  No wonder the Church is in this great estate of apostasy. Our Lord is for sure coming soon. COME LORD JESUS!
