Wherever there is a vacuum of sound, Biblical teaching, errors breed and multiply as sincere Christians try to reinvent a doctrinal wheel from Scripture.
There has for a long time been a nearly complete silence in American Christianity (Reformed included) on what the general equity of the Old Testament Judicial Law entails. In its place has crept in the polar alternatives of status-quo, civilly protected polytheism (of the Book of Judges and American tradition) and Mosaic Theonomy.
Fortunately, that vacuum has officially now ended. Learn why the Biblical and majority view of the Reformation and Puritan eras on General Equity is right:

As the faithful Church is the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Tim. 3:15), it is never safe to take a minority view of something in Scripture until you, at least, know all of the reasons for the majority view. May we seek to reform according to the Word of God as we learn from godlier and more knowledgeable saints of old than we.
