    Is Establishment Principle, etc, dependent on a critical mass of biblical Christians?

    All these plans for

    (a) The Establishment Principle or a renewal of it in Scotland and/or England.

    (b) National Covenanting or a renewal of it in Scotland

    (c) Theonomy

    (d) Application of the general equity of the Biblical law to modern states or a renewal of it in certain countries.

    All these are dependent upon and acknowledged to be dependent upon (even by theonomists) a critical mass of biblical believers arising in particular nations.

    Is this idea of the application of God's standards being dependent on democracy Scriptural, or just (Scriptural) practical wisdom?

    Is it another recognition (even by theonomists) that we live in a different era and redemptive situation to the Mosaic period?

    Does it mean that amils, some of whom believe that things aren't going to improve much anyway, can only hold to any of (a) to (d) hypothetically, because they don't believe it will ever happen?

    His Name forever shall endure;
    last like the sun it shall:
    Men shall be blessed in Him,
    and blessed all nations shall Him call (Ps. 72:17)

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
