Revolt Against Maturity: A Biblical Psychology of Man
Ross House Books 1987
Revolt Against Maturity is a study of biblical psychology. Bible-based Christian psychology assumes that man is created in the image of God not indirectly shaped through theistic—or any other kind of—evolution. It believes that man has already been determined and defined by God. Rushdoony asserts that the central task of Christian psychology is to discern the mind and soul differences that exist between the regenerate and unregenerate man.
Man suffers when he abstracts God from reality. Since God created everything, nothing can be interpreted apart from God. When man attempts this impossibility, he suffers psychologically. Psychological damaging is inevitable for those in revolt against the maturity that the God of all life and all knowledge has purposed for man.
