The Lie

The lie is a religious fact and that is why in the culminating catalog of sins, we have “and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie” is outside the kingdom, outside the city because whosoever loveth and maketh a lie is he who says, ‘I shall be as god and it is my word that shall determine good and evil or shall abolish good and evil,’ a la Nietzsche. A lie is a religious fact. It denies God’s reality and says I am god. Bow down before my word.

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.
