Christian Submission vs Belligerent Discontentment Before Civil Authorities

February 5, 2015

35

My heart is grieved by the growing discontentment, hostility, and anarchist attitudes by those who profess the name of Jesus Christ in America. As our nation grows more hostile, American Christians must grow more patient, longsuffering, merciful, and compassionate. As American culture grows more belligerent, we must grow more eager to speak the truth in […]

God Rules Over All Civil Magistrates

January 12, 2015

1

There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine! I really appreciate the above quote from Dutch Reformer Abraham Kuyper as it sums up Christ’s reign – over everything. It’s similar to what Dr. RC Sproul has said: […]

The Law of Nature is the Law of God

January 2, 2015

8

After a brief “life” interlude, we now return to the series of articles addressing the Law of God and related topics. For the Christian, God’s Law is our rule of life. By grace alone, we love God’s Law and delight in it as it burdens us not (Psalm 1:2, 119:97; Romans 7:22; 1 John 5:3). […]

Sam Waldron on Civil Authorities

October 8, 2014

19

I expect my next article on the topic of the Law of God to address Gentile governments and natural law, but as a prelude to that post, I thought it would be helpful to share some conclusions by Dr. Sam Waldron from his helpful lecture series, Theonomy: A Reformed Baptist Assessment. Dr. Waldron’s work is available […]

Thomas Schreiner on Theonomy

September 25, 2014

The last article on the subject of God’s Law served to be an introductory article to the series, providing a list of resources examining the manifestation of God’s Law under the Old and New Covenants. The primary purpose of this series is to study the definition and application of God’s Law for the Christian under […]

The Law of God, Theonomy, and Pacifism

September 9, 2014

37

Theonomy and pacifism are rearing their heads as the United States continues its efforts to build a coalition of nations to destroy the Islamic State. Two weeks ago I offered some recommendations for Christians in how we should be responding to the threat of IS and the impending war. While my position has found consensus with most […]

Dear Presuppositionalist

February 7, 2014

16

Dear Presuppositionalist, We may or may not have met before, but as a budding presuppositionalist I share your passion for presuppositionalism as I too believe this apologetic approach is most biblical and most glorifying to our great God and Savior. I also believe it is our duty to declare what God has revealed in Scripture […]

Three Key Points from the ‘Babies Are Murdered Here’ Documentary

January 22, 2014

Today is the 41st anniversary of Roe versus Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that has led to the slaughter of 55 million babies in four decades. Today is also the day of the highly-anticipated documentary, Babies Are Murdered Here. What began in 2013 and transitioned into a grassroots movement to call abortion what it […]

Worship God Alone

June 29, 2013

Comments Off on Worship God Alone

Peter, a man, refused worship (Acts 10:25-26). Twice, John fell down to worship an angel, but the angel refused worship (Rev. 19:10; 22:8). The liar, Satan, commanded Jesus to bow down and worship him (Mat. 4:9). But Jesus responded to Satan in Mat. 4:10: Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is […]

Oh Sinner, Do Not Flatter Yourself That There Is No Hell

February 12, 2013

4

Our postmodern culture posits there is no right, no wrong, and no ultimate justice. It’s the kind of thing serial killers live for. That is, if there is no God, then there is no Law Giver, and therefore laws are man-contrived for beings who are not beings but rather molecules in motion derived from the […]
