Quote of the Day:
The original and defining text of Reconstructionism is Institutes of Biblical Law, published in 1973 by Rousas John Rushdoony — an 800-page explanation of the Ten Commandments, the Biblical ‘case law’ that derives from them, and their application today. “The only true order,” writes Rushdoony, “is founded on Biblical Law.
All law is religious in nature, and every non-Biblical law-order represents an anti-Christian religion.” In brief, he continues, “Every law-order is a state of war against the enemies of that order, and all law is a form of warfare.”
Gary North, Rushdoony’s son-in-law, wrote an appendix to Institutes on the subject of ‘Christian economics.’
