  2. 2. Justice Lifts theNations(1905) in old Supreme CourtBuilding, Lausanne,SwitzerlandCited in Francis Schaeffer, How Shall WeThen Live? p.107.
  3. 3. THE ONLY SOURCE OF A JUSTIFIABLEPLAN OF HISTORICAL PROGRESSION: THE BIBLE !CREATOR &REDEEMER Only the Hebrews, so far as we know, made Contract #1 covenants with their gods or God. W.F. Albright, Yahweh and the Gods of Canaan.
  4. 4. "What makes the history of Israeliteprophecy sui generis is the succession ofapostles of God that come to the peoplethrough the ages. Such a line of apostle-prophets is unknown in paganism. . . .[Thepagan prophet] incorporated a unique, self-contained divine power; there his "mission"ended with him. Yehezkel Kaufmann, The Religion of Israel
  5. 5. guarding your life•  Prov 13:3 He who guards his mouth keeps his nephesh = tongue•  Prov 16:17 He who keeps his way keeps his nephesh = behavior•  Prov 19:16 He who keeps the commandment keeps his nephesh = mental attitude
  6. 6. The 3 Great Concepts of JusticeConcept Consequences in PracticePositive + law is objective ; Law - unjust law impossible (ethics = law)Social Good + law relates to social reality; (ethics > - individual valued in terms of social usefulness law) & difficulty of calculating the goodNatural + law relates to the individual; Right - evolutionary worldview weakens concept & (ethics > difficulty of specifying the rights law)
  7. 7. politics Pressure of Life ethicsSequenceLogical epistemology metaphysics
  8. 8. The rebellious people are tired of . . .being the recipient of a name. They want to name themselves. . . .It is the desire to exclude God from His creation. And it is this solidarity in a name, this unity in separation from God, which was to keep man from ever again being separated on earth. . . .It was in this, man s environment, built by man for man, with any other intervention or power excluded, that man could make a name for himself. . . . Jacques Ellul, The Meaning of the City
  9. 9. Whenever a society has a naturalistic religion, grounded on the concept of continuity, man faces the total power of the state. . . .Where there is no transcendental law and power in a separate and omnipotent being, then power has a wholly immanent and immediate source in a state, group, or person, and it is beyond appeal. The state becomes the saving power and source of law; it becomes the priestly agency of its own total power. . . .[It] becomes god walking on earth, and its every tyranny is identified as liberty. . .In this faith, for man to be free means to be in the state. Rousas J. Rushdoony, The One and the Many
