Quote on Theonomy

Some have tried to argue that Christ only upholds the continuing validity of the Decalogue; yet this cannot be the case, as the judicial case laws are expositions of the moral law (for example, we need to go to the case laws to understand what constitutes adultery as the seventh commandment does not specifically define it). Moreover, Christ explicitly put the death penalty for reviling one’s parents on a par with the fifth commandment itself (Matt. 15:4). Therefore, the death sentence for stated crimes must be every bit as perpetually binding today as the Decalogue itself.1
