S1E8 – Defending Theonomy, Part 1 (Response to 9Marks)

Today is the first part of a two-part series on a defense of theonomy. In part one, I respond to a recent 9Marks podcast episode hosted by Jonathan Leeman and Mark Dever. They interview T. David Gordon, who critiques theonomy and reacts to its apparent growth in popularity. I look at some of the statements that they make, showing that what they are really attacking is not theonomy but a straw-man. Theonomy does not mean making a carbon-copy of Old Testament Israel. It means recognizing that every system has a god and every god has a law.

Here is the link to the original 9Marks podcast episode (published October 12, 2020):
