    I've had him on my ignore list for the past month, I'm not one to have extended conversations with people who openly associate with cults, but he is particularly not worth ANYONE's time in my estimation.

    The Wiki article had two sources, but only one link. In the link that was there, I didn't see a quote. If it isn't true, you might want to consider editing it; it is Wikipedia, after all.

    You should read other NRx blogs and such, you'd probably find a lot to like. There's a big theonomist contingent, though to be fair, it is probably the smallest of the three wings. You're definitely right that I would want to run a society much differently than the US is now, or has ever been. I do like the Constitution insofar as it serves my values, by the US as a construct has always been a product of my much-hated modernity.

    I do have some questions about theonomy:

    1. Would a theonomic civilization allow anyone to leave for any reason?
    2. Would they allow secession for a contingent in their controlled geographic area who disagree with them?
    3. What would stop someone from conspiring to falsely accuse someone of a capital crime such as homosexuality? What would the standard of evidence be?

    I kind of think you and Sola throw around the word idolatry a little too loosely. Nowhere in the Bible does it say anything that makes me think pledging allegiance is idolatry.

    In fact, a lot of the main guys in the Bible suck up to the Kings a little too much for my taste, but nowhere is it suggested that they are sinning. I think idolatry is a pretty literal thing, I think there's a difference between being overly attached to something, and worshiping it.

    Do you think it was immoral of David to froth around and act insane, and to deceive the enemies while being employed by them? What about working for them, was that wrong too?

    My point was actually that you still oppose things from more of a libertarian view, than a theonomist view, not saying that's bad. Just an observation.
  5. Sola, I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I'm just curious, do you agree with Engelsma that we should be dividing over eschatology? Even OTC doesn't go that far.

    Mind you, I believe that today's society is way too "tolerant" and afraid to stand for truth, but I think Christians dividing over eschatology is more than God would ask of us.

    No, not recently. I'll try to take the time to read through those threads.

    Then he will see theonomy get trounced.

    Hey! I meant to respond to your last message, I guess I never got around to it.

    With regard to your question, I have never used that term. I do think that the Bible contains wisdom on pretty much every topic. From Religion (obviously) to Economics, Justice, personal relationships etc. I think Biblical law this is something that too many Christians overlook, we should certainly at least strive to understand it.

    I think its not as simple a thing as just simply accepting or rejecting the Law in modern times as a whole, though. There are a number of things to consider. For one thing, the entire law in ancient Israel assumed and involved a tribal culture. Even going as specific as to which tribe served as priests. The Levites served in a number of capacities: Priests, judges, and quarantine experts for example. Their work was funded by tithes. Because rural property stayed in the tribe, you didn't have to worry about China buying up your country.
    I will add more thoughts later .

I'm Done

by Christian Liberty on 07-27-2013 at 06:53 PM
I'm so sick of seeing "Support our troops" or even worse "Fighting for our freedoms."

During a trip to Word of Life for a week of camp I saw a bumper sticker that said "God bless our troops, especially our snipers."

Usually, when trying to prove a point about war, I don't discuss the troops. I'll probably continue to do this. One teacher I had was open minded to listening to what I had to say about war, but had a father who had served in
