Mainstreaming Dominionism


Another excellent exposé on the spread of dominionism inside AND outside the Church, can be read at Herescope.

quote…

You might be surprised to learn about who is now connected to the 7 Mountain “mandate” of Dominionism.[4] It has become a widespread teaching in the evangelical world, and many of its adherents aren’t fully aware of how dark and dreadful the full-blown Dominionist agenda truly can become. One of the common denominators for Dominionists is the belief that the church should change the world – not just impact the world as salt and light, but actually control the world, particularly the State (government). This theology appeals to many, and has deep roots in church history.

A key feature to look for in identifying Dominionism is a de-emphasis on the Cross of Christ and His dying for our sins. The humble Gospel of Salvation is sidelined by a gung-ho gospel of the Kingdom, which talks about doing things and supporting causes.

Most of the time Dominionism Lite is marketed as a fix-what-is-broken mandate for the church to change the world. This can be done through various mission strategies and by changing people’s values and behavior. Especially popular is the call to restore America to its “Christian roots.”

Just HOW this mandate will come to be accomplished on a national and global scale is the key question. Some teach and believe that it will be through “decrees” — prophetic declarations that claim to be doing spiritual warfare in the heavenlies that will change things on the earth. These esoteric heresies have gained great prominence in the NAR subculture.[6] Others believe that it will happen via education and worldview training. Others are working to change economies and the marketplace. Some churches focus on impacting the arts, media and entertainment. And many are working in the political arena. Each “sphere” of these 7 mountains appeals to people who want to see things change here on earth.

Whatever the focus, the 7 mountain “mandate” is now becoming mainstream. The methods to do this include the technique of integration and infusion, embedding the 7 mountains “mandate” doctrines into superficially appealing causes. Below are several examples of how this mainstreaming happens.

  1. How did the catholic Church (worldwide, universal) get so sidetracked from the simplicity of the gospel?

    Dominionism, Zionism, prophetic pronouncements, territorial mapping, extreme spiritual warfare, bizarre mysticism (ala John Crowder), spooky-spiritual take control strategies, etc., etc. The devil has succeeded in getting many zealous/passionate types to simply waste their time going thru religious motions that simply are of no good to the Kingdom here on earth as it is in Heaven…

    What a grand diversion strategy that apparently is doing more for the confusion of the Kingdom than advancing it. Much of it esoteric nonsense that claims to have far greater influence than it truly has. People with their own religious delusions of grandeur setting themselves up as the New Church Royalty awaiting their thrones of authority over earthly powers…

    Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. Rom 12:3

  2. Be sure and read the entire article at herescope. Billion Souls was mentioned and I was shocked to see all the denominations that were involved. Do church leaders not do research before joining? Here is the link to that site:

    Leonard Sweet is one of the speakers and leaders . He is the author of “Quantum Spirituality”. Look at this link:
