Eschatology and Man's Kingly Office

We have not been called to be mummy Christians, but to be kings unto Christ and in Christ, and no-one who is a mummy Christian today can expect to be a king in eternity, a member of the new creation, serving God and exercising dominion in His name. We are called, our Lord makes clear on the parable of the talents, to exercise dominion now in order to exercise it in Him and with Him eternally.

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.
