The Godly Theonomist's Picture

"Theonomy' is a four-letter word to many Reformed Christians. Ask them why, and you will get a variety of answers. Often, theology and exegesis are not the cause of the disdain. Personalities are. Somewhere along the line, a professing theonomist has wrinkled their feathers. Animosity has developed. It becomes us against them. The non-theonomist is now in a position to avoid all future argumentation about the biblical texts. He can fall back on those convenient ad hominem arguments which, although they provide no biblical or logical refutation of the position, are certainly effective for those who know little if anything about theonomy and its advocates.
