EC398: (1) What we think of the importance of utilizing corporal punishment in the training of children?  (2)  It appears that there is a growing reliance on the historic, redemptive hermeneutic as opposed to the grammatical, historical interpretation in preaching coming out of Westminster.  I am hearing more about biblical theology versus systematic theology. I am also hearing more about the Genesis one and two framework hypothesis as against a literal six 24 hour day creation or day age theme.   But I am not really sure why or if I should be concerned.  I would be interested in your thoughts or if you could guide me toward appropriate reading on the topics.”

About the authors

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.
