A Romans 11 Olive Branch | In what way are non-elect covenant members united to Christ?

Doug Wilson interacts with a post by Shane Lems from The Aquila Report related to union with Christ and the Federal Vision.

I would be happy for the sake of peace and clarity to never again use “union with Christ” in reference to a non-elect covenant member. But we still need a biblical way to describe them and their relation to Christ, and that description cannot be the opposite of the biblical description. Christ has non-elect branches, and they are _______________ (what?) to Christ.

  1. … and they are NOTHING to Christ. … NOT GOD’S CHILDREN AND SO NOT HEIRS AND LITTLE to Christ.
    … VIEWED AS ON THEIR WAY TO HELL to Christ. … ANTAGONISTIC to Christ. … ANTITHETICAL to Christ.

    Doug, why does it appear that you and other FV folks want to make a third class of humans, when scripturally there are only two, God’s elect children and other? It appears you are trying to develop a new version of Christianity and make some kind of historic name for yourselves. You are harming the historic church.

  2. Why don’t you just call them Auditors, like the Gnostics did? Seems entirely fitting, since the roots of TULIP are are found deep, deep in the manure of Manichaeism.
