We live in an age of accelerating moral decline which bodes ill for the future of our culture, society, and nation. A stable, peaceful, and productive society requires a secure and righteous moral foundation. Man cannot exist without a moral code to restrain his sinful passions and to guide him to righteous conduct.
Our collapsing mores should especially be a deep concern for Christians because moral decadence, left unchecked, inevitably leads to social collapse. And this will not only destroy Christian families, but the opportunity of the Christian witness to the world.
Though in the historical long-run the Christian faith will eventually grow to righteous dominance in the world, Christians must labor now to be a part of the solution to the contemporary moral problem. And this means that we must renew our commitment to Scripture.
Contained within the absolute truth of God's Word we find his solution to man's moral confusion: God's absolute standard for righteousness contained in his holy Law. Unfortunately, contemporary theological discussions too quickly write-off any consideration of both the legitimacy of God's Law in the new covenant era and the applicability of it in the modern world setting.
Because of the nature of the modern debate and our special need for socio-political as well as personal norms, this book will focus specifically on the question of the relevance of the Old Testament Law today. Christians need to return to a whole-Bible ethic rather than a piece-meal it-seems-to-me morality. God's Law Made Easy is a good place to start.
