Thesis 62: Agrarianism As Environmentalism

Those who despise the Kingdom of Christ come from both rural and urban environments.[1]

1. Matthew 22:5 cf. #10

The word "environmentalism" is not used in the modern sense of "concern for global warming and green technology," but in the sense used back in the 1970's by R.J. Rushdoony, e.g., "Environmentalism," Revolt Against Maturity, 86-90.

The idea here is that being raised in the right environment can save a person.

But Man's revolt is against God, and God is found in every environment. Even if an agrarian environment is more Theonomic than an urban one, the reprobate will still rebel against God as they see Him in an agrarian environment.
