Russia has invaded Ukraine, and Americans are debating what to do about it. Is there something that the mainstream media might be missing?


  1. President Biden has made his selection of our next Supreme Court Justice, Ketanji Brown Jackson—who is she, and how do we expect her to do as she replaces Justice Stephen Breyer?
  2. The Legacy Standard Bible, while not really a news headline per se, is my new favorite thing—I’ll explain why.
  3. I’m saddened to report that Dr. Gary North has gone to be with the Lord. I’ll share some thoughts about Dr. North and his ginormous contributions to biblical scholarship.

Theonomy or Autonomy

With Russia’s ongoing war with Ukraine, we’re going to take a look at biblical principles regarding war and whether or not the Bible has much to say about the topic.


The Foundations of Social Order

Posted on October 3, 2021

Written by R.J. Rushdoony

Every social order rests on a creed, on a concept of life and law, and represents a religion in action. Wherever there is an attack on the organization of society, there is an attack on its religion. The basic faith of a society means growth in terms of that faith, but any tampering with its basic structure is revolutionary activity. The life of a society is its creed; a dying creed faces desertion or subversion readily. Every creed, however healthy, is also under continual attack; the culture which neglects to defend and further its creedal base is exposing its heart to the enemy’s knife. Because of its indifference to its creedal basis in Biblical Christianity, western civilization is today facing death and is in a life and death struggle with humanism.

Today humanism is the creedal basis of the various democratic and socialistic movements. The clearer the humanism, the more direct its use of power, because it operates in terms of a consistency of principle. The conservatives attempt to retain the political forms of the Christian West with no belief in Biblical Christianity. Apart from vague affirmations of liberty, they cannot defend their position philosophically. They, therefore, become fact-finders: they try to oppose the humanists by documenting their cruelty, corruption, and abuse of office. If the facts carry any conviction to the people, they lead them only to exchange one set of radical humanists for reforming radical humanists. It is never their faith in the system which is shaken, but only in a form or representative of that system. The success of the subversives rests on their attack on the creed of the establishment, and its replacement by a new creed.

Then the foundations are provided, the general form of the building is determined. When the creed is accepted, the social order is determined. There can, therefore, be no reconstruction of the Christian civilization of the west except on Christian creedal foundations.
