Sotomayor gives Natural Law Theory The Old Heave Ho

“First, . . . there can never be a universal definition of wise.”

Sonia Sotomayor

This is classic postmodern decontstructionist tripe. If there can never be a universal definition of “wise” then we are making it up as we go.

I am a Pastor of a small Church in Mid-Michigan who delights in my family, my congregation and my calling. I am postmillennial in my eschatology. Paedo-Calvinist Covenantal in my Christianity Reformed in my Soteriology Presuppositional in my apologetics Familialist in my family theology Agrarian in my regional community social order belief Christianity creates culture and so Christendom in my national social order belief Mythic-Poetic / Grammatical Historical in my Hermeneutic Pre-modern, Medieval, & Feudal before Enlightenment, modernity, & postmodern Reconstructionist / Theonomic in my Worldview One part paleo-conservative / one part micro Libertarian in my politics Systematic and Biblical theology need one another but Systematics has pride of place Some of my favorite authors, Augustine, Turretin, Calvin, Tolkien, Chesterton, Nock, Tozer, Dabney, Bavinck, Wodehouse, Rushdoony, Bahnsen, Schaeffer, C.

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture. Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.

  1. That sucks…now we’re without a standard by which to test the “wisdom” (idiocy) of that statement.

  2. Do you see this statement as self-defeating or refuting? I take this statement of hers to be a little nugget of wisdom and thus not necessarily wise, according to her. I also have trouble separating the concept of wise or wisdom from that of truth or right. So I read her to be saying there are absolutely no absolutes. But I have been told that I am wrong and that this is not a self-refuting statement.
