Rushdoony on Oaths

"All law is religious in nature, and every non-Biblical law-order represents an anti-Christian religion. But the key to remedying the situation is NOT revolution, nor any kind of resistance that works to subvert law and order. The NT abounds in warnings against disobedience and in summons to peace. The key is regeneration, propagation of the gospel, and the conversion of men and nations to God's law-word. Meanwhile, the existing law-order must be respected, and neighboring law-orders must be respected as far as is possible without offense to one's own faith. The pagan law-order represents the faith and religion of the people; it is better than anarchy, and it does provide a God-given framework of existence under which God's work can be furthered. The modern perspective leads to revolutionary intolerance..." - Pg 113-114
