S2E17 – Defending Theonomy (Part 1)

April 13, 2022

00:15 – Introduction to Theonomy. What is Theonomy and what is a basic definition of it? What does Deuteronomy 4:5-8 say and how does it apply to us today?

09:48 – On today’s program I play and review several clips from a recent Pastors Talk episode produced by 9Marks. The hosts, Jonathan Leeman and Mark Dever, interview Carl Trueman about his most recent book, The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self. Although the book and the interview are excellent, a few comments are made about theonomy that are worth bringing up. The men raise several straw men arguments regarding theonomy before knocking them down, seemly misunderstanding what theonomy actually teaches.
