Spot of theology, anyone?

Our Chalcedon president, Mark Rushdoony, wrote this for our magazine in 2004, reminding us that, as Christians, we walk by faith and not by sight. Because what we see, in this fallen world, can be disheartening.

As Bible readers we should know that history has  a purpose, organized by a Person, God, who is infinitely wiser, more righteous, and mightier than we could ever be. From Genesis to Revelation, God makes His purpose known. There’s really no excuse for believing history doesn’t have a purpose.

We don’t worship the works of our own hands, we don’t worship things, the state, or science. We worship God, who hears our prayers and moves, often invisibly to us, throughout history, shepherding it to its objective.

And we are His.
