The lines of antithesis are not like chalk lines left on the sidewalk
after a child's game, to use Van Til's illustration. Those lines can be
washed away by the next rain. The lines of the antithesis are two lines
of generation, two lines of seed -- the seed of the woman and the seed
of the serpent (Gen. 3:15).
