Objections to the Abiding Validity of the Judicial Law

For the man who says that Biblical penology can only be applied if we decide that the penalty has "general equity" in it amounts to nothing more than Arminianism in Christian Ethics (not theological Arminianism). For him the judicial laws are not laws but only "suggestions" or "good advice" and only if men will accept them of their free will.

The reason we know that the penal sanctions are of general equity is because they were a model to the Gentile nations (Deut. 4:5-8), and since they have not been abrogated then they must be continually valid. Any other approach allows man to sovereignly pick and choose which parts of the Bible he is going to obey.

WHo is this "we" you speak of Daniel? This last stament is very untrue and inflammatory. This unhealthy appetite for Law you have and how you wantr to legislate it on NC believers is troublesome to scripture.


Do you have an answer as to why the law of God would be the standard by which the heathen nations were judged in the OT, but this is no longer the case under the NC?

Leviticus 18:24-27 is along the same lines of what Daniel is saying as well.

Okay... I am closing the thread for a breather.

Well, the Mods have determined that this thread is done.

On to other things.
