Vincent Chueng on Theonomy: Part 1

Clarkian Vincent Chueng writes,

"Many Christians are wary of theonomy, but how can the state rationally justify laws against murder, theft, rape, perjury, or any such thing without appealing to Scripture? In fact, how can the government justify its very existence apart from the Bible?"

"Here we do not have to discuss the rights and wrongs of Reformed Theonomy, but there is no denying the fact that the government cannot justify its own existence, understand its own purpose and mandate, or define the various crimes and the severity of each crime without the Bible. If we must call this a form of theonomy, then so be it."

Vincent Chueng, "The Ministry of the Word," p. 45
