Dominion Theology: On The Rise In America

header

In the words of our founding fathers it is stressed in the importance of the separation of church and state,  and in particular I would like to share the purpose of the separation of Church and State presented by James Madison:

The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.”-James Madison

No truer words can be said about how important it was to our founding fathers to put up that wall and protect us all from the tyranny of Dominion theology.  The founding fathers knew very well why this issue was extremely important, and just looking at the strife in the middle East, I would imagine the point Madison makes to be rather obvious. But if we need a home grown example, we are finding ourselves in a time where radical Christianity seeks dominion over our government and us all. This is also not without the threat of treason through a coup d’état, or a threat of a military take over for the establishment of Christian martial law:

This includes indoctrinating the military recruits as missionaries, and as soldiers of GOD.. Hence this is not by any means a small problem, it is rather has become a real growing problem:

It’s by definition dominion theology:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_Theology

Abstract:

Dominion Theology or Dominionism is the idea that Christians should work toward either a nation governed by Christians or one governed by a conservative Christian understanding of biblical law. At least under this name, it exists primarily among Protestants in the United States. It is a form of theocracy and is related to theonomy, though it does not necessarily advocate Mosaic law as the basis of government. Prominent adherents of Dominion Theology are otherwise theologically diverse, including the Calvinist Christian Reconstructionism and the charismatic/PentecostalKingdom Now theology and New Apostolic Reformation.

They essentially are at the moment trying to use the Democratic system against itself. Thinking of course that they can vote in a theocracy and get rid of the secular government while threatening an overthrow should they find themselves unable to. Part of that is undermining the government to make it appear weak while grandstanding themselves as the solution. This should sound very familiar to anyone with a firm grasp of the lessons we can learn from history …:


It’s not about Hitler or the Nazis, but rather the process of how they gained power to which I am inferring to here. Hence the Tea Party in this case , to which you can note on the Tea Party command center,  have a very similar agenda to gain power . I would perhaps infer that the tea party is a cross mix of Nazis and the Taliban.. It seems they are employing Nazi tactics to gain power while trying to impose dominion theological rule. Thus Just take the following noted example from the Tea party command center 😦Note:  they have now blocked access to this unless you sign up!. Click here for a Screen Shot):

Abstract:

The major stumbling block to restoring America and saving the world is the lack of unity or oneness, which Jesus preached. With Christians all thinking the same thing it would be easy to elect Christians to Congress and all government offices nationwide to turn America to the true right which is defined by Jesus Christ. Then we could easily get funds and people to bring Jesus and His absolute perfection to the world instead of secular western economy and war. We could pass laws requiring schools to teach kids to memorize a Gospel by the 3rd grade before they learn to ignore teachers, party, and drop out. We could outlaw anti-Christian groups like the ACLU and make countless changes to make government more righteous, responsible, and redemptive.

Much of the world is wondering if we will become a theocracy or not as we are approaching that thin red line.. Once it’s in place, should it happen, it will not be removed without civil war. Americans killing Americans over religion just like in the middle east. We could descend into becoming a 3rd world nation as Afghanistan had after the 70’s. The rise of religious extremism and fundamentalism has gripped Afghanistan ever since, and like the rhetoric we see in such extremism in Afghanistan we can see similar calls for Dominion rule here in the United States. Such as in the case with  D. James Kennedy to who at the “Reclaiming America for Christ” conference in February, 2005 had made the following address:

Our job is to reclaim America for Christ, whatever the cost. As the vice regents of God, we are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government, our literature and arts, our sports arenas, our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors — in short, over every aspect and institution of human society. – The strategy against the American Radical Left should be the same as General Douglas MacArthur employed against the Japanese in the Pacific… Bypass their strongholds, then surround them, isolate them, bombard them, then blast the individuals out of their power bunkers with hand-to-hand combat. The battle for Iwo Jima was not pleasant, but our troops won it. The battle to regain the soul of America won’t be pleasant either, but we will win it.

— D. James Kennedy (from the book, Pat Robertson, The Most Dangerous Man in America? by Rob Boston).

What’s even more troublesome is that on February 11, 2004, the Republican Party of Texas declared that it “affirms that the United States is a Christian nation.”. And as we have been seeing lately is the rise of Christian Nationalism claiming America was founded on the Christian religion when the latter is a matter of fact as noted in the treaty of Tripoli, article 11:

As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

Treaty of Tripoli as communicated to Congress 1797

This Dominion theocratic nationalism is threatening the very stability of this Nation to which ranges from converting public schools to indoctrination centers, to further introduction of legislation such as the “Constitution Restoration Act of 2004”:

http://www.yuricareport.com/Dominionism/ConstitutionRestorationAct.htm

Such legislation would acknowledge that, quoting from, and following along from Theocracywatch.org :

Christianity’s God as the “sovereign source” of our laws. It would reach back in history and reverse all judicial decisions that have built a wall between church and state, and it would prohibit federal judges from making such

The endeavor to and danger to our freedom’s are echoed in the words of Rev. Joseph Morecraft. He’s a pastor of the Reconstructionist Chalcedon Presbyterian Church in Marietta, Georgia. Yes another bible state wanting dominion theological rule.  Morecraft describes explicitly how he views democracy as mob rule while stating that civil government is to:

“bring down the wrath of God to bear on all those who practice evil!””And how do you terrorize an evil doer?” he asked. “You enforce Biblical law!”

This is according to him:

“to protect the church of Jesus Christ,”

“Nobody has the right to worship on this planet any other God than Jehovah. And therefore the state does not have the responsibility to defend anybody’s pseudo-right to worship an idol!” “There ain’t no such thing” as religious pluralism, “There has never been such a condition in the history of mankind. There is no such place now. There never will be.” 

To conclude I dare say our greatest threat facing us today is from within. It is not China or the terrorists in some far off land that pose such a danger in the here and now, it is the rise of the Christian Taliban, the fundamentalist Christian Nationalism sweeping across the Bible belt of America. And they don’t just want rule and control here, they want to spread this control and hold dominion over the rest of the world until their lord Jesus should return.. This to which is essentially indefinitely until our species goes extinct. These people are religious fanatical Narcissists bound and wrapped in Fascist elitism. And on that note I close with Randall Terry, Gary North,  and Sinclair Lewis:

Randall Terry:

I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good… Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called on by God to conquer this country. We don’t want equal time. We don’t want pluralism.” Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue, in The News-Sentinel, Fort Wayne, Indiana 8/16/93

Gary North:

So let us be blunt about it: We must use the doctrine of religious liberty to gain independence for Christian schools until we train up a generation of people who know that there is no religious neutrality, no neutral law, no neutral education, and no neutral civil government. Then they will be get busy in constructing a Bible-based social, political and religious order which finally denies the religious liberty of the enemies of God.”
.

Sinclair Lewis:

When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and waving a cross

    • What scares me more is how unconcerned a lot of people are when I had brought it up in conversation, or brought it to someone’s attention. It’s as if they really think and believe “Oh that could never happen here”.. I see a lot of denial, and sometimes people get angry and frustrated that I had pointed this out. I suspect many haven’t a clue as to what to do about it, or fear it to where they submit and do nothing. This is discouraging to say the least :/
