A good lot of so-called “conservative” (what are they conserving?) Reformed types have told me, “Yes, Wilson has some weird views but he’s different from the other Federal Visionists.” Really? Rhetorically perhaps, but substantially?
Lane Keister, who has been sitting in with me on the Heidelcast for the last several weeks, has spent a lot of time dialoguing with Doug. Lately, however, he has been re-thinking his view of Wilson’s doctrine of justification. If the law/gospel distinction is essential to the doctrine of justification (and it is) and if Wilson denies the same (and he does) then Wilson denies justification sola fide.
