The Doctrine of The Lesser Magistrate with Brother Bryce

March 30, 2022

This Wonky Wednesday, Bryce walks us through the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate. The doctrine is seen throughout church history but wasn't formalized until the Magdeburg confession of 1550. Bryce walks us through the doctrine based off a book we recently read by Matt Trewhella called unironically, "The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates". The book is definitely worth reading. Bryce makes a comment in the discussion about a right of other religions to worship. The first commandment of God lays our clearly that humanity is not to have any other gods besides Yahweh, therefore there is no God-given right to freedom of religion in the sense of freedom to make false idols. If we are to legislate according to God's laws and not man's laws (secular humanism or any other manmade religion) then the law of God prescribes in his word is that you do not have the right to worship false idols. Every government is a theocracy and derives their laws from metaphysical principles. That may manifest in "reason" and "logic" from the secular atheist that is tolerant of every worldview besides every other worldview or from a holy book in various religions. Regardless, this is the clear teaching of the 1st commandment and when God visits a nation in judgement he holds them accountable to the false idols they made and does NOT recognize their "freedom of religion" in the sense many understand it today. Read Isaiah 10:5-11 for a clear example of this.
