The Eschatology of Hell

Hell is the total and self-willed eternal blindness of would-be God’s, who have finally limited the universe to themselves, and are now by God’s decree limited to no more than themselves, and this is hell. And so our Lord as He speaks warns men to fear hell, to turn from their sin and to believe, and to open their being to the totality of God and His universe, His law, His purpose for their lives, and not to narrow their perspectives to themselves.

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.
