I am not completely sure what to think of the following quote and would like to understand it, so I can at least form an opinion. I need to admit, this quote was on a Reformed board and there were no negative comments. However, the name Rushdoony sends up red flags, regardless of whether or not I understand it or not.
Polytheism (all gods are equal) leads to relativism (all moral codes are equal); relativism leads to humanism (man makes his own laws): and humanism leads to statism (the State best represents mankind as the pinnacle of power). As Rushdoony remarks, “because an absolute law is denied, it means that the only universal law possible is an imperialistic law, a law imposed by force and having no validity other than the coercive imposition.”
