Moral Consequences
R. J. Rushdoony
It is a law of being that religious apostasy has moral consequences. As St. Paul made clear in Romans 1, the idolatry of man inescapably results in immorality, and immorality in perversity and perversions. Because such men forsake God, He forsakes them. Such men exchange the truth of God for a lie. By “a lie” is meant here “false gods,” who are the supreme embodiment of falsehood. The humanist rebels against God in order to exalt himself. The grim irony of judgment is that his act leads to dishonoring himself. The humanist seeks to glorify and honor his body, but he instead dishonors it openly and makes his disgrace a public fact.
