How to See Reality

Joffre the Giant: How To Make Date Rape Obsolete
I think this is a pretty brilliant post. I’m not going to spoil his argument. Just go read it. I will pull out my favorite paragraph from the conclusion, though.
The word theonomy can be a very distracting one. But don’t let it be. I don’t even call myself a theonomist. I don’t want you even thinking about theonomy. I want you to think about this: o Christian, does it not seem right to you that the Law as given to Israel of old should at least teach the Israel of today (i.e. we Christians) how to see reality?
Theonomy is distracting. To me. I’m not sure what to do with it. I have some objections to it, but even its definition is kind of slippery. But what Joffre does in his post is help us conform our minds to Scripture, all policy questions aside. The Bible teaches us how to see reality.
Oh how I love your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
