Out of us, out of our innermost being, because of the Holy Spirit, Paul says, shall flow out the rhythm of life, if we believe in Jesus Christ. Then we have got the rhythm! We are in the Spirit, all things work together for good when we believe and obey God, when we know His predestinating power, then the Holy Spirit works powerfully and freely in us, and we have the rhythm of life; and Paul is talking here about that rhythm, about how it works to make everything work for good; and it is our calling therefore to allow Gods rhythm of life to go forth and to govern our total life in the world around us.
- R. J. Rushdoony
Rev. R.J. Rushdoony (1916–2001), was a leading theologian, church/state expert, and author of numerous works on the application of Biblical law to society. He started the Chalcedon Foundation in 1965. His Institutes of Biblical Law (1973) began the contemporary theonomy movement which posits the validity of Biblical law as God’s standard of obedience for all. He therefore saw God’s law as the basis of the modern Christian response to the cultural decline, one he attributed to the church’s false view of God’s law being opposed to His grace. This broad Christian response he described as “Christian Reconstruction.” He is credited with igniting the modern Christian school and homeschooling movements in the mid to late 20th century. He also traveled extensively lecturing and serving as an expert witness in numerous court cases regarding religious liberty. Many ministry and educational efforts that continue today, took their philosophical and Biblical roots from his lectures and books.
