Theonomic Treatment of Capital Punishment for Apostasy

In the article CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR APOSTASY (postmillennialworldview.com/2022/04/08/ot-penal-sanctions-and-apostasy/) on the Postmillenial Worldview website, Dr. Kenneth Gentry clears up the popular misconception that Deuteronomy 13 establishes capital punishment for unbelief. He applies a new covenant perspective (New Testament) in understanding apostasy and excomunication covered in Deut 13 and 17:2-7 in terms of the theonomic ethic. The connection to idolatry and its consequences is explained in the context of the Old Testament era with its implications for today. I recommend this reading for those interested in the application of theonomy for situations like the punishment for apostasy and unbelief.
