The Christian worldview explained by R.J. Rushdoony

Since God has created man and all things else, and God’s absolute and total government rules providentially in and through all things, moral responsibility is an inescapable part of the constitution of things. There is no neutral, non-moral corner in all of creation. God’s total providence is His absolute wisdom, holiness, and righteousness in action. Man’s life is thus not in a vacuum but in a moral context and continuum. Not even death provides the sinner an escape from this moral universe.

Such a view is not acceptable to paganism and humanism, nor to the neoplatonists in the church. In Deuteronomy 23:12-14 we have a law wherein God requires even an army on the march to practice sanitation where defecation is concerned. The neoplatonist is not averse to state laws on sanitation, but he wants God to remain “spiritual” and above and beyond such matters. He thus turns over a vast area of ultimate responsibility and providence to the state. Biblical law makes such a view heresy…

God is the Lord, and nothing is outside or beyond Him, so that in all things we are face to face with the living God and His government.
