The Unity of Our Faith

Throughout all of scripture we find affirmed unity of God’s being and His revelation. The doctrines of our faith are necessary aspects of one another so that we cannot assert that any one doctrine takes priority over any other. Theologians speak of the simplicity of God’s being, or God’s unity of simplicity; this means that no aspect of God is prior to any other aspect. We cannot speak of God’s sovereignty as more important than His work as a creator or that redemption takes priority over anything else. All of God’s being and all of God’s work have a unity to them. the

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.
