The Book of Psalms opens with these powerful words: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly . . . but his delight is in the law of the Lord” (Psalm 1:1-2). Sadly, most Christians don’t take the time to study how God’s law is to be rightly understood and applied in their daily walk. This primer on the “Biblical Ethics of Theonomy” by William Einwechter is a great introduction to this foundational subject.

Walking in the Law of the Lord

An Introduction to the Biblical Ethics of Theonomy
By William O. Einwechter

No man can fully keep God’s perfect law, but those redeemed by Christ’s grace who delight to follow it in their walk will be blessed. So proclaims the Book of Psalms with these opening words: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly . . . but his delight is in the law of the Lord” (Psalm 1:1-2). Psalm 119:1 affirms this truth as well: “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.”

Sadly, most Christians don’t take the time to study how God’s law is to be rightly understood and applied in their daily walk. This primer on the “Biblical Ethics of Theonomy” by William Einwechter is a great introduction to this foundational subject.

The term “theonomy” comes from two Greek words—theos (god) and nomos (law)—and this book advocates the view that the law of God revealed in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments is the absolute and final standard of truth, righteousness, and justice for all men and all nations. It demonstrates that theonomy advocates the complete sufficiency of the Bible to instruct men in the way of righteousness in every area of life, and contends that the Word of God is the only infallible standard for judging between right and wrong conduct in every governing sphere—self-government, family government, church government, and civil government—and in all human action. It affirms that the Bible gives “the answer, the only answer, and the whole answer to every ethical problem.”

An excellent resource for gaining a working knowledge of the ethics of theonomy as well as a grasp of how to properly defend it against critics.
