2.77. Theonomy

“Theonomy—also known as ‘dominion theology’ and ‘Christian reconstructionism’—is a worldview that foresees a progressive domination of world government and society by Christianity until God’s kingdom on earth becomes a reality. Its eschatology is essentially that of the postmillennialism so popular around the beginning of the twentieth century.”1
