Long Description

God's Law or Chaos
God's Law or Tyranny
God's Law of God's Judgment

For over a century, most conservative Christian social thinkers and theologians have denied all three of these assertions. Some of them have even gone so far as to argue that God's law is inherently tyrannical. They have argued that the church can survive and even prosper under any legal order, except one: the rule of God's law. In this assertion, they join forces with secular humanists, occultists, and other assorted ethical rebels.
On pages 345-47 of this book, Dr. Greg Bahnsen offers a brief, clear, 10-point summary of the biblical position on the authority of God's law in today's world. Go ahead: sneak a peek. Don't be shy. But be forewarned: it may challenge everything your pastor or seminary professor has taught you about the law of God.
God's law is Christianity's tool of dominion. This is where any discussion of God's law ultimately arrives: the issue of dominion. Ask yourself: Who is to rule on earth, Christ or Satan? Whose followers have the ethically acceptable tool of dominion, Christ's or Satan's? What it this tool of dominion, the biblically revealed law of God, or the law of self-proclaimed autonomous man? Whose word is sovereign, God's or man's?
Millions of Christians, sadly, have not recognized the continuing authority of God's law or its many applications to modern society. They have thereby reaped the whirlwind: cultural and intellectual impotence. They have surrendered this world to the devil. They have implicitly denied the power of the death and resurrection of Christ.
They have served as footstools of the enemies of God. But humanism's free ride is coming to an end. This book serves as an introduction to his woefully neglected topic.
