History is a vital part of understanding how God works out His plan for mankind. Sometimes the most unlikely people are His instruments to further His Kingdom and justice. One such person is the empress Theodora. The remarkable story of how Christendom advanced would not be complete without knowing how a woman, trafficked into prostitution when quite young, ended up establishing God’s law as the law of her realm.
R.J. Rushdoony shared her story in one of his lectures and what follows is his account of the impact she had on Western Civilization. Once you hear it, you will understand why the enemies of God have no intention of anyone hearing of her allegiance to the law of God.
She is an example of an empowered woman!
