Opposite - definition of opposite by The Free Dictionary
Paul concisely lays out the epistemological enmity of which we are speaking, and he plainly points to its consequences, in Colossians 2:8 -- "take heed, lest anyone rob you [that is, rob you of the wisdom of the treasures of knowledge spoken of in verse three preceding] through his philosophy, even vain deceit, which is after the traditions of men, after the rudimentary assumptions of the world, and not after Christ." Here, Paul sets a philosophy which is "after Christ" in antithesis to one that is "after worldly" presuppositions (his word is "rudiments": the elementary principles of learning) and human traditions. And Paul says that the latter will have the effect of depriving those who maintain it of knowledge. Those who "suppress the truth in unrighteousness," are not only "without excuse" for their line of reasoning, but they also become "vain in their reasoning, their senseless hearts being darkened" (Rom 1:18,20-21).' Unbelieving philosophy is not "philosophy", (etymologically "the love of wisdom") at all. The arguments of unregenerate men against the Christian faith are thus only "the oppositions of knowledge falsely-so-called" (I Tim 6:20), the foolish reasoning of those "that oppose themselves" (II Tim 2:25) in the process of prosecuting their enmity or hostility against God.

The cognitive agnosticism of post-Kantian religious thought precludes identifying any clear-cut line of demarcation between truth and error -- and renders the advocating of one a disreputable social faux pas'. Modern theology is, accordingly, simply loath to press the fundamental antithesis between scholarship which submits to the revealed word of God and autonomous reasoning which either ignores or denies it. The inevitable result of suppressing this antithesis is that Christian theology loses its basic character and joins hands with what should be its very opposite: religious relativism. That is what has transpired in our age of anti-antithesis. For instance, there are no genuine "heretics" in the thinking of modern theologians -- for the same reason there are no citations for indecent exposure in a nudist colony: viz., the preconditions for making those charges simply do not hold.
Brief definitions of obscure words beginning with the letter A
We must call Genesis 3:15 to mind again when Jesus calls those who oppose the kingdom of God, "the sons of the evil one" (Matt. 13:38), and when Paul identifies them as the "enemies" of Christ's cross who mind earthly things, in contrast to the Christians' heavenly citizenship (Phil.3:18-20).
