Adam & Christ

The unity in Adam and the unity in Christ. This is Paul’s concern. He tells us first in Adam we have an inheritance of death, of a sinful nature, of warfare against God, and we have inherited this as sons of Adam. Second he says that the death of Christ does precisely the reverse; it overpowers Adams sin by greater gifts, powers, and by dominion. And third, the death of the body is the first stage in the greater judgement of all who are in Adam, and the full deliverance of all who are in Christ.

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.
