Administering justice upon all disobedience

Today is the centenary of R.J. Rushdoony’s birth. In that case, I’m going to quote from Charles Darwin and Gina Liggett.

As if! Of course I’m going to quote from Rushdoony on his 100th birthday:

Thus, the first step in the [cultural] mandate is to bring men the word of God and for God to regenerate them.

The second step is to demolish every kind of theory, humanistic, evolutionary, idolatrous or otherwise, and every kind of rampart or opposition to the dominion of God in Christ. The world and men must be brought into captivity to Christ, under the dominion of the Kingdom of God and the law of that kingdom.

Third, this requires that, like Paul, we court-marital or “administer justice upon all disobedience” in every area of life where we encounter it.
