They have their reward.
It’s a very simple thing to understand: either the Bible is God’s word, or it isn’t. And if it is not, then we don’t have God’s word.
I’m happy to report that my “liberal friend” mentioned in the post has made real progress since it was written. I don’t think he believes anymore that his church outranks God.
R.J. Rushdoony made a lot of enemies by writing about “churchmen” who refuse to honor God’s word. Or even recognize it as His word.
But as our Lord Himself said, “They have their reward.”
