Heresy is declared by an ecclesiastical court after due process and adequate trial. Individuals do not pronounce a position to be heretical, the church does. Critics of Theonomy make haste to build various strawmen, proceed to tar them well, grab the masses of churchmen by their emotions and then burn that baby real good. All those with forks and picks stand back, breath in the satisfaction of the toxic, charred remains of Theonomy and its so-called legalism. Only problem is that a strawman is exactly and only that. No matter how many of them you burn, the true position will keep moving forward. The self-gratification of feeling victory over a myth holds no gravitas. The truth wins. God’s Word prevails. “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever” (Is 40:8).
