Covenant Curses and Blessings

God’s covenant with man has penalties as well as rewards. Our relationship with God is a covenant relationship and therefore there is heaven and there is hell. As man to whom God in His grace has given His law is faithful to the Lord of the law and to his every written word he receives blessings and for his disobedience he receives curses. The curse of the law therefore and its penalties are upon all those who despise the Lord of the covenant and His law word.

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.
