Theonomic Ethics and the Westminster Confession: The Records of the New Haven Colony

The Records of the New Haven Colony (1641-1644):

"The judicial law of God given by Moses and expounded in other parts of scripture, so far as it is a hedge and a fence to the moral laws, and neither ceremonial nor typical nor had any reference to Canaan, hath an everlasting equity and should be the rule of our proceedings." "It was ordered that the judicial laws of God, as they were delivered by Moses...be a rule to all the courts in this jurisdiction in their proceedings against offenders."
