Creation, Providence & Eschatology

Creation because it comes from the hand of God has purpose. Romans 8 verse 19-23 we are told that all things move; they groan and travail, the ground underneath our feet, the natural universe, looking for that eschatology, the end in terms of God’s purpose. Similarly the doctrine of providence tells us that God’s purpose rules and overrules in all things so that God never lets an iota of creation waver from his ordained purpose.

About the author

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.
