God's Law is Christianity's tool of dominion. Any discussion of God's law must ultimately consider the issue of dominion. Who is to rule on earth, Christ or Satan? Whose followers have the ethically acceptable tool of dominion, Christ's or Satan's? What is this tool of dominion, the bibically revealed law of God, or the law of self-proclaimed autonomous man? Whose word is sovereign, God's or man's?
Millions of Christians, sadly, have not recognized the continuing authority of God's law or its many applications to modern society. Thus, they have reaped the whirlwind - cultural and intellectual impotence - and have implicitly surrendered this world to the devil, effectively denying the power of the death and resurrection of Christ. By doing so, they have served as footstools for the enemies of God. But humanism's free ride is coming to an end.
