The Unjust Shall Live by Unfaithfulness

Paul begins a series of passages which have as their purpose to show that the unjust shall live by unfaithfulness. As we have seen, Paul does not take Atheism seriously. He rejects it as a serious option. It is a fool who hath said in his heart that there is no God. Atheism is an intellectual subterfuge by which the moral problem is disguised. Man has an inescapable knowledge of God which he holds or suppresses in unrighteousness, in injustice.

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.
