Is Christ the ultimate fulfillment of the Sabbath?

As far as Christ as the ultimate fulfillment of the Sabbath, I would say this…If the Sabbath as instituted at creation was a symbol and type of the eternal state, then the Sabbath between creation and consummation is at least that. The Sabbath is not a symbol or type of Christ, strictly speaking; it is a symbol and type of that which Christ attains for us – the eschatological state. And until that state comes in its fullness and finality, the Sabbath yet remains as its symbol and type. I think Hebrews 4 argues this.

Why is Theonomy Unbiblical?

Why is Theonomy Unbiblical?

Before critiquing theonomy, we need a good definition. Some people today who use the word “theonomy” don’t mean anything more than “God’s law” because the etimology of the word theonomy is “theos” which means God, and “nomos” which means law. They only want to affirm that God’s law is supreme over man’s law. And they’re right about that. God’s transcendent moral law is the norm that norms all norms. Governmental laws should always be consistent with God’s law and human law must never violate God’s law.

It is always a humbling and learning experience to read the responses to a blog series on a controversial subject. Iron does sharpen iron, as the Bible says, and I learn much from those responses. Some postmils have taken a little umbrage at my description of Postmillennialism as a millennium involving a distinct, golden age following the one in which we live.
