In this episode, Kenny explains and defines the concepts of Theonomy and Christian Restructionism.
Theonomy is the idea that Old Testament law should be considered morally binding. Theonomists reject the traditional Reformed belief that the civil laws of the Mosaic Law are no longer applicable to us today. Most Theonomists are also proponents of Christian Restructionism, which is the idea that the Old Testament law should be considering binding on societies and modern governments.
