Work & the Curse

Our task as Christians is to move ourselves and our society from the realm of curses to the realm of blessings. Each of us as we work more and more in faithfulness to God, in terms of His meaning, in terms of His law word, in terms of His mediatorship in every relationship, we’re going to have conflicts, we’re going to have problems and tensions, but we’re going to move also from the world around us which is under the curse, into the world of blessings; and we shall know in the midst of all things the peace that passeth understanding.

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.
