One of the primary tenants of the Reformation is the sufficiency of scripture. It is one of the 5 Solas, and is referred to as Sola Scriptura, or scripture alone. The radical two-kingdoms theology denies this principle overtly. It says scripture is sufficient to guide the spiritual needs of the church, but insufficient to guide the "common kingdom."
What is the common kingdom? It is everything other than the narrow spiritual concerns of Christians regarding salvation, prayer, pietism, and "spiritual growth." Civil government, education, law, politics, business, economics, art, media, agriculture, etc, are all defined as "common kingdom," and God's law/word is excluded from any relevance to this "kingdom."
It is a practical denial of the gospel (the gospel being the redemption of the whole universe by Jesus Christ) and the sufficiency of scripture to govern and enlighten all areas of life. - Eric Wagner
