This text explores the notion that every social order rests on a creed—a concept of life and law—and represents a religion in action. The basic faith of a society means growth in terms of that faith. Rushdoony argues that because of its indifference to its creedal basis in biblical Christianity, Western civilization is today facing death in its struggle with humanism. Just as when a foundation is provided, the general form of a building is determined, when a creed is accepted, a social order is determined. Rushdoony goes on to suggest that there can be no reconstruction of the Christian civilization of the West except on Christian creedal foundations.
