Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s . . . (Deut. 1:17).

The question of the authority of the Old Testament in the state is tied inexorably to the issue of the authority of the Old Testament in general. If God has spoken His infallible Word in the Old Testament, and if that Word specifically speaks to matters that directly concern the state, then does it not follow that the Old Testament teaching on the subject of civil government is authoritative today?

In this article, we take a look at one of the biblical laws that was given to make provision for the needs of the poor. The law is given in three separate texts (Lev. 19:9-10; 23:22; Deut. 24:19-21), and it instructs the Israelite farmer to leave some of the produce of his fields so that this food maybe gathered in by the poor. It was apparently one the chief means for the provision of the poor in Israel.

In the Bible, murder is referred to as the shedding of innocent blood. What should our response be to the shedding of innocent blood? Should magistrates execute killers? Or should they sentence murderers to life in prison? Does it really matter which, as long as dangerous individuals are kept from committing further acts of violence? Can a nation, state, or community contract guilt before God on the basis of their response to murder, i.e., will God judge a people for a failure to punish murder in accord with His law-word? These vital questions are answered for us in Deuteronomy 21:1-9.

This article argues for the necessity of making ethics a distinct part of the Christian curriculum. In fact, it is our contention that without a firm grounding in biblical ethics there can be no true Christian education. If we have not taught our students a biblical approach to ethics, and given them the knowledge and skill to make wise moral decision in every area of life, we have failed to give them a thorough Christian education.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he” (Prov. 29:18). In this text, the stability, order, and prosperity of nations are specifically tied to obedience to divine revelation. It sets before us the alternatives of God’s Word and peace, or man’s word and anarchy — God’s law or chaos.

Biblical law clearly protects a man’s property. The private ownership of property is both established and safeguarded by God in the Bible. An important aspect of this protection of property are the Scriptures concerning a man’s landmarks.

When we speak of authority, we refer to the power or right to give commands, and to require obedience to those commands. A command is the imposition of the will of one person upon another by telling him what he is to do. As Creator, God has complete authority over all His creatures.

There have been two basic stands concerning war among Christians and their particular church denominations: pacifism and just war. Pacifists declare that all war is evil and contrary to the principles of Jesus and the New Testament. Hence, Christian participation in war is forbidden. Just war adherents believe that a war may be just if it meets certain criteria. If the war is just, then a Christian may participate in it. The purpose of this article is to summarize and defend the just war position.
