R.J. Rushdoony looked to the Book Joshua as the inspiration for this essay, part of his collection of essays, A Word in Season:
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve…”: (Joshua 24:15).
“We live in an era,” Rushdoony wrote, “which calls for courage and resolute choices, not moral indecision.”
P.S.–You may have been frustrated by the slowness of Chalcedon’s website. I’m happy to report this problem has been fixed.
