How Should God’s Law Influence the Laws of America? (Ep. 62)

March 13, 2022

If you were going to create a society from scratch, and you wanted it to have the best laws possible, how would you go about coming up with those laws? And what role would the Law of God play in determining what those laws should be? Would you just make the Old Testament laws the law of the land? Or would you skip those Old Testament laws that you feel no longer make sense and that perhaps don’t fit in our modern world?
In this third episode focusing on the Law of God, we look in more depth at the category of the Judicial Law and discuss what role it should play in the laws of the land.
