Hierarchy is second nature for Calvinists

a response to David Fitch's post about Mark Driscoll on Reclaiming the Mission:

I think Dave is right – hierarchy for everything is second nature to Calvinists. Jonathan Edwards was the same way. He applied hierarchy to everything – acts of God, the Godhead, etc. I think they apply Reagonomics (I know – anachronistic) to theology; i.e. find out what theory or definition is the king and then hyper-focus on it and then depend on the trickle down effect from your hyper-focuson one aspect to positively affect every other aspect without being directly involved with those other “lower” aspects. Piper does the same thing with much of his work.
