The Covenant and the Mediator

God and His covenant law stand between us and all things. Because that is the fact we always meet God as a mediator, whatever we do, wherever we are and remember, a mediator is also a judge. So that God either judges us or blesses us in terms of our faithfulness to His covenant. Thus we are never permitted at any point in all of creation to feel that we have an unmediated relationship to anything. Christ is our mediator with God but also with one another and all things under the sun.

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.
