The Spirit & Hope

In this which many regard as the greatest chapter in all of scripture, and Romans 8:28 as the greatest verse, we come to grips with so much that Paul has to say. In verses 24-25, the hope and expectation of the new humanity is described. Then in verses 26-27 he tells us that the Holy Spirit works in us to remedy our weaknesses, that He is basic to our hope and our expectation, that He prays in us and for us. Then in verses 28-30, Gods perfect purpose, we are told, ensures the inevitable realization of our hope, and our triumph in and through all things.

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.
