Two Kingdoms Theology Study

I’ve been working through (slowly) a study of Two Kingdoms Theology and am still struggling to find a good balance between a complete world-church dichotomy and theonomy. The challenge as I see it is that while we can recognize clearly that we do not live in a theocracy or even a Christian culture anymore (if we ever truly did that is), we cannot ignore the fact that God exercise His sovereign rule over non-covenant nations and judged them for sins. So, on the one hand we cannot expect the culture to adopt a Christian worldview apart from conversion on a mass scale, yet we feel compelled to warn the culture of the consequences for things like homosexual marriage and abortion. When do we argue based on social impact, citing statistics of how damaging homosexuality or divorce is on the people involved? When do we declare the Biblical testimony that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God? The fact that there are some radical positions within the Two Kingdoms camp, and even the recent abandonment of sola scriptura by the author (Jason Stellman) of one of the very books I am using in my study has not helped. I have a long ways to go but will try to post my thoughts as I move along with this study. In the meantime please pray that God will help me understand His truth in this matter.
