The Blessing of Dominion Theology
March/April 2008


By R. J. Rushdoony

Not only is it man’s calling to exercise dominion, but it is also his nature to do so. Since God is the absolute and sovereign Lord and Creator, whose dominion is total and whose power is without limits, man, created in His image, shares in this communicable attribute of God.

The Necessity of Dominion

By Mark R. Rushdoony

One of the core elements of Chalcedon’s message of the need for Christian Reconstruction has always been the belief in the applicability of the dominion mandate (Gen. 1:28)

t’s obvious that the world is clamoring for a sense of purpose. They want to know why they are here, and what their life should be about. Mankind needs a vision, but Christian leaders are addressing this desperation with a man-centered gospel of deplorable content. The message they bring undermines a central thesis to Biblical revelation.

The Blessing of Dominion Theology

By Martin G. Selbrede

It’s something of a testament to the power of dishonest reporting that so many Christians believe that anyone writing on The Blessing of Dominion Theology must somehow be arguing for The Blessing of Abject Miserable Tyrannical Legalism.

By Lee Duigon

“Since a sovereign must have absolute power, the state, where it claims sovereignty, whether a democracy or anything else, moves toward totalitarian powers. Sovereignty with such powers becomes the saving power, and the state becomes man’s god and savior. It then governs and controls man’s total life.” —R. J. Rushdoony

Many of us have “coached” a group at one time or another. It may have been a youth athletic team, a chorus, a discussion group, or a team of fellow employees on a particular project. As different as these “coaching situations” are, each coach has one common denominator that is missing among most Christian brothers and sisters, and especially among church pastors and officers: a clear expectation of the goal.

History is like a treasure hunt. Solomon notes, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter” (Prov. 25:2 NKJV)
