Meeting the Risen Christ at the Table?

Who said this? “…the central reality in a New Testament understanding of the Lord’s Supper is that the risen Christ, alive and present in the Spirit, continues to meet his people in joyful fellowship at the table.

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.
