The church of the resurrection is called to be a victorious church. Its Lord and Savior is he who is King of kings and Lord of lords, and he has called us to sit together with him on the throne of his realm. We cannot sit together with him if we do not believe in his word, and the power of the good works which he has called us to and ordained us for, but if we believe in him and are faithful to our calling, our ordination to good works, we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
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.
