“It must be recognized that in any culture the source of law is the god of that society.”
Rousas John Rushdoony, The Institutes of Biblical Law, Volume 1 of 3

Rousas John Rushdoony

“To control the future requires the control of education and of the child. Hence, for Christians to tolerate statist education, or to allow their children to be trained thereby, means to renounce power in society, to renounce their children, and to deny Christ's Lordship over all of life.”
Rousas John Rushdoony
