If one side is the truth, then the other side —antithesis— has to be a lie. But what is the synthesis? So, actually, if you talk about which side wins, the lie wins out, because a lie is always a lie. It never becomes the truth.
Now, we understand what Gorbachev meant when he made the above statement. Let us substitute the official terms for the words, "capitalism" and "communism". "An alternative between Thesis and Antithesis is in the offing ..." And, what is this "alternative system"? It is the New World Order! Gorbachev nearly let the cat out of the bag; indeed, he must have been sending a signal to all initiates and adepts of every secret society in the world, to be patient, because the Plan is on track and nearly complete.
Grace and its works are the antitheses of the devil and his works.
antithesis 1520s, from L.L. antithesis, from Gk. antithesis "opposition," lit. "a placing against," noun of action from antitithenai "to set against, oppose," a term in logic, from anti- "against" + tithenai "to place," from PIE base *dhe- "to put, to do" (see factitious).
Common examples of antithesis include quotes such as, 'Rude words bring about sadness, but kind words inspire joy,' or 'Many are called, but few are chosen.' In literature, antithesis can illustrate that two characters are opposites for example, the character of Snow White and the Wicked Witch from the novel 'Snow White' shows the opposite traits of them. Snow White - good, honest, innocent, kind, felicitous and selfless. The Wicked Witch - evil, jealous, bad, mean, cruel, and miserable. Antithesis is normally used to give out the exact opposite meaning of something. Opposites are not always for arguing or conflicting with each other; it is just the way you use to describe two different moods.For the second half of this exercise, a simple side-by-side presentation of OT and NT scriptures is given, which demonstrates the contradictions between the OT Creator God and the NT Supreme God. I must emphasize that this is a loose presentation, in that I have not confined myself to citing only passages which appeared in Marcion's canon, but have made free use of other canonical material as well. In any event, this will at least provide the reader a general idea of what Marcion's work "Antithesis" may have been like. For a further in-depth discussion on Marcion's "Antithesis", see Adolf Von Harnack's work, "Marcion: The Gospel of the Alien God" (pp.53-63; E.T. Labyrinth Press, 1990).
This page represents a short exercise on my part (rather loose and by no means comprehensive)- the purpose of which is to provide a brief glimpse into Marcion's lost work, "Antithesis", which can be best described as a Marcionite commentary on the New Testament, which set forth contrasts on passages( via narrative commentary, or by the presentation of OT and NT scriptures side-by-side) between the Hebrew deity and the Alien God. It is not certain how this work was actually arranged, whether a separate work apart from Marcion's canon, or a commentary incorporated into it. For the first part of this exercise, an attempt is made here to extract and construct from Tertullian's hostile witness (Adversus Marcionem) a Marcionite narrative, so as to allow the Marcionite voice to express its views on the following three subjects:Yes, this is an example of antimetabole, but also expresses a synthesis between sound and sight. I don't see antithesis in this statement. I suppose it might be an example of juxtaposition, but the comparison is irrelevant.
