Rev. Kyle Dillon, a pastor in the Presbyterian Church in America, made this very helpful chart explaining the differences between a Lutheran doctrine of the two kingdoms, an Escondido view of the two kingdoms, and a NeoCalvinist view of the state. He helpfully differentiates Luther’s perspective from that of theologians like Michael Horton, David VanDrunen etc. I think it’s apparent that the Escondido view has more in common with the American concept of the separation between church and state than with Luther.
