Man’s Fallen Nature Does Not
Justify the Rejection of Biblical Law
by Stuart DiNenno
To hold that a society ought not to be made subject to God’s law because the majority of its citizens are unregenerate and by nature at enmity with God, is to hold that the evil of man has made him independent from God. It is to assert that man’s own rebellious heart justifies his disobedience, and it is to maintain that man’s revolt against God has set him free from the demands of God’s law and free to institute his own concepts of right and wrong. This, of course, is an absurdity that not only justifies the crime of the criminal but also puts the criminal in the judgment seat over the Judge.
