Men of Laws, Men of Daydreams

The judgments of God in His Word must therefore become our judgments on ourselves and on the area we govern. Only as a people are recalled to God and His order can they expect the benefits of that order. Solomon in Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Or you can translate the word that is rendered as perish as ‘run wild.’ In other words, anarchy prevails. And in terms of the scripture, anarchy and death are about the same thing. But, Solomon went on, “But he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” That verse is an important one because it tells us something that what a vision is. Where there is no vision, the people run wild and perish, but he that keepeth the Law, happy is he—in other words, vision and the law are equated. People who have no law, and who do not move in terms of law, have no vision. They only have daydreams. God’s Law is a total law. When men in terms of God’s Law deliver the judgments of God on themselves, their homes, their churches, their homes, schools, and vocations, and in the State, then too the courts will deliver the judgments of God’s total law. Then indeed, because of the people, we keep the law. Happy shall we be.

The Ninth Commandment
Judgement of the Court
R. J. Rushdoony

Daydreams can be enforced by rules and bribes and guns for a while. But they are always rotting, always failing… and soon enough, they can no longer be sustained.

Christians are to build on the solid rock, aiming to have their work endure for thousands of generations.

And not for the three or four generations God allots to the wicked.

If that.
