The Eschatology of Covenant Man

Man has a part in eschatology by affecting God’s righteousness or justice on earth by means of restitution and restoration man has an essential role. Thus when we function in a Godly way, when we bring justice to bear on a situation, we are affecting end point eschatology. Thus by making a stand in this country against false economies, against crime, against lawlessness in every form we are saying “we, because God has laid a burden upon us, are bringing the end to certain things”. This is what eschatology is about; an endpoint eschatology is a part of the everyday work of man.

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.
