The full meaning of salvation cannot be understood without considering what it means to reign. Paul’s frequent use of the word “reign in the book of Romans” makes clear the kingship and dominion in the doctrine of redemption. Man was called to dominion (Gen. 1:26–28) and to establish his reign over the world. Through his fall, man allowed death to reign in the world. But Paul has declared that we are now “more than conquerors” and that “we reign in life” because of our salvation through Christ. In Salvation and Godly Rule, Rushdoony shows how the biblical doctrine of salvation requires us to take our rightful place as kings and queens under God, through grace and the gift of righteousness.
