As John Knox continued to be used by God in the Reformation of Scotland, he applied the law of God in all areas of life. As a result of this application of the law of God, Knox has been labeled a theonomist. This raises the question of what is theonomy? Theonomy is God's law. A theonomist is someone who applies God's law biblically. Because John Knox had a high view of God's law and the application thereof, it only took Knox twenty-five years to reform Scotland from barbarism to Christian sophistication.
Great Sermon! May our churches and this nation return to God's Law for instruction!
The Law of God is PERFECT, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. (Psalm 19: 7-9)
