Old Life: Jihad if you do, Holy War if you Don't

http://oldlife.org/2012/09/jihad-if-you-do-holy-war-if-you-dont/

Darryl Hart points out that for neo-Calvinists who criticize the lack of distinction between the secular and sacred in Islam that Christian culture warriors don't seem to differ from Muslims on that very point except on the issue of which sacred text is considered canonical.  This raises the question of how and if Christians who want their beliefs to encompass all of life are actually all that different in the political implications of their ideological approach from Muslims.  Hart, being a bit of a two-kingdom advocate, obviously has a view he believes permits for a distinction but not all Christians like the idea or implications of two-kingdom theology for reasons we'll trust you may already know about.  If not then there's nowhere like Reformed blogs to learn more than you could possibly want to know about those debates. :)
