This is a recent Chalcedon blog post by our president, Mark Rushdoony, and it would be hard to say it better than he does: “Evil will self-destruct, not triumph, and the Kingdom of God will fill the earth.”

Don’t you love the way the Sadducees, in Luke 20:28-33, tried to trap Christ with a smart-aleck Charlie High School question about seven brothers who each in turn had the same wife: and which of them would have her in the resurrection?

    An aside: Didn’t Jesus say His yoke is easy and His burden light? When I read how much Christians throughout history, and even today, suffer for their faith, I think I have it easy in comparison.

    1. It’s the burden that we *don’t* have to carry that makes our yoke light: we don’t have to **earn** our salvation. Imagine you needed 500 good works to get into Heaven, and on your deathbed you discover you only managed 499…
