For those of you who are paying any attention to my ongoing efforts to defend my Libertarianism, I submit the following two resources that will answer any question you could possibly have on the subject :).
- Libertarian Christians FAQ
- For Example:
Do you reject theonomy, and if so why? Why shouldn’t the Old Testament Law be enforced by human government?
Theonomy, strictly defined, is the notion that God is the sole source of human ethics. There is an element of truth to this: ethics do find their root in the character of God. However, many theonomists add that ethics are rooted only in the witness of Scripture, and hence declare that natural law is false. Some take it even further and say that human government exists to enforce biblical law. These elements of theonomy I reject. First, I take a concordance view of ethics, that natural law and Scripture coincide and support one another rather than oppose. I would point Scripturally-inclined readers to Romans 1-3 as some of the prime evidence for this. I also believe very strongly that the State is the enemy of God, existing as a result of man’s sin rather than as part of the original created order and the destiny of man on earth. God is the true King of the Universe, and all power and glory belong to him, never the State.
Please read with an open mind.
