Covenant Salvation

The purpose of the covenant is to reveal God’s grace and salvation. The covenant is of grace and of law and its purpose is to save. God binds Himself to redeem His people out of all their troubles if they are faithful. The covenant God creates all the conditions of life and the covenant law governs them all. Whether a man is faithful or faithless will determine His relationship to God and the covenant. Whether he will be blessed or whether he will be cursed.

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.
