“In the mid 90s the idea of societal transformation and social entrepreneurship began to emerge when Bob Buford, author of Halftime began to voice the need for social impact through one’s workplace call. Other groups like Pinnacle Forum, a ministry to key influencers and our own ministry, Marketplace Leaders and International Coalition of Workplace Ministries (ICWM) was birthed.
“As we entered the new millennium Christian leaders like Billy Graham, Ed Silvoso, Henry Blackaby, and Peter Wagner became powerful voices to validate God’s move in the workplace….
“Today, a new trend is emerging in the faith at work movement…. the idea that the culture is shaped by seven mind-molders, or mountains, in society. They include business, government, media, arts and entertainment, family, religion and education. If we, as workplace believers, can influence each of these areas for Christ, we will win the culture of our nation. (“Reclaiming the 7 Mountains of Culture,” Os Hillman)
The above quote is from an article posted at Herescope in June 2010 titled, Seven Mountains: Set To Go VIRAL
Without a doubt Herescope was correct in predicting Dominionism, or if you’d prefer, Seven Mountain theology, has went viral. You can find a long list of posts made here at Sola over the last few years which can attest to that.
What has interested me is watching how blasé many Christians, who once sounded a loud warning about this dangerous false theology, have become on the topic in the last few years. This shows me it is now being openly mainstreamed into our churches and accepted. As can be seen in this recent article concerning Liberty U and Kirk Cameron;
An evangelical university famous for its conservative ideology is partnering up with a similarly controversial activist to create a new religious film.
Liberty University, founded in 1971 by televangelist Jerry Falwell, will team with former child star-turned-Christian activist Kirk Cameron to produce the 90-minute film, slated for release later this year. Cameron said the film will answer questions about why God lets bad things happen. The partnership was announced last week during Christin television program “Praise the Lord,” which airs on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.
Liberty’s Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. said on the program that Cameron is the “example of the type of graduate that Liberty is trying to turn out” and praised Cameron for “using your profession to impact the culture, and that’s what we’re trying to do in every profession.”
