Confidence rather than despair may thus mark the Christian approach to ethical decision. The New Testament does not itemize all the valid Old Testament laws, nor all the obsolete ones. Geisler also assumes that the command to obey civil rulers is unqualified. This is true in part because Christ himself was nomistic in his teaching much, if not most of the time. 17 Bahnsen and various theonomists constantly return to this fact in their discussions. 18 Unfortunately, such an appeal to Christ is really beside the point, since He was, "born under the law..." unlike us who are no longer under a tutor. 19 Are we arguing then that coveting is no longer wrong?

Our HOMEPAGE for Worldviews has a basic outline of "what a worldview is" and why this concept is so useful for understanding people and our societies. Only Geisler's semi-Pelagianism saves him here from universalism. The Da Vinci code and The Secret Supper deal with an alternative interpretation of early Christianity and the gospels, far different from that of the orthodox Catholic Church, both novels also deal with mysteries behind some of Leonardo Da Vinci’s most famous paintings.

In How to do Things with Words (published posthumously) Austin labeled ‘the descriptive fallacy’ the mistake of thinking that all language is used to perform the act of describing or reporting, and he attributed the discovery of this fallacy to Kant (How to do Things with Words, 3). To drive this point home, we may even propose that long-term financial institutions be set up to manage an endowment fund. This focus on relationships is most often understood by Conservative Protestants as an obligation for honesty and self-sacrifice in relationships.
