How to prevent Christianity from turning into liberal gnosticism

In the entry “The afterlife and Christ” a reader speaks of how Judaism recognizes the reality and importance of particularity and difference. In response, I return to my old theme that Christianity is deficient in that area, and indeed in the entire area of political existence, and so Christian society needs to supplement itself with sources of guidance that come from outside the Christian scripture, as historic Christianity did in a variety of forms.

Then see my further exchange with a reader on the question of particularity and universalism, and how liberals rejection of the entire structure of existence and thus the particular existence of any particular thing or type of entity.
