Theonomy! The women shriek and faint, the children hide under their covers (along with a good many grown men), the stouthearted shut the doors and draw the shades. The term conjures fears of stonings of naughty children and austere clerics running a cowed society devoid of freedoms.
But is Christian Theonomy just our version of an Islamic patriarchy like Saudi Arabia or Iran?
Let’s talk through it a bit – this episode features the infamous AD Robles, a man with a steel jaw and iron knuckles in the arena of theological battle. Adam and, well, Adam… discuss and explore the meaning of Theonomy, and whether it might be worth a second look from the Reformed and wider Christian worlds.
