A set of three sacred/secular dichotomies are being presented that have caused schism in our understanding of life and mission including medical mission. These are:
- The Heaven and Earth dichotomy (the primary dichotomy)
- Body and Soul dichotomy
- Sacred and Secular work dichotomy
These in turn have caused many other dichotomies such as evangelism/social action dichotomy, love/sex dichotomy, and ministry/family/work dissociation.
Integration of these dichotomies can make us more motivated and authentic and help Christians gain more control over the seven cultural mountains.
