"Over the years, that same false narrative was used to silence us from speaking up in schools through prayer or to allow godly teachers to impart biblical wisdom to our children. The Ten Commandments were removed from both school houses and many government buildings. It was declared inappropriate as the ACLU attacked our freedom of speech and religion with their unconstitutional arguments." -- Karen Hardin

A favorite argument of the NAR dominionist is that God was kicked out of our schools. This is the powerless false god they serve. Beloved, God goes wherever God wants to go, period. Realize what Hardin is essentially advocating for here is known as a theocracy. I know this comes as a shock to many but God never asked us to take over the world or even our own country and establish a Christian theocracy. The cold hard reality is that most who advocate for this are so false to the Gospel that they would not survive a true theocracy anyway.

"And we complied. Over time, the church (the people) were relegated to sharing the light to the church (building) and told to keep our beliefs to ourselves as they are a "private matter." The problem is that the Bible says just the opposite. It never tells us our role is simply within the walls of the church building. In fact, just the opposite. We are told to "Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15)." -- Karen Hardin

And we complied? What is Hardin suggesting? That Christians should have taken up arms against the government because they said that you cannot force Jewish, Muslim and Atheist children to pray Christian prayers? As for the citation of the Great Commission, only a dominionist can ignore of the New Testament that goes into painstaking details of life within the walls of the church to focus on one verse. That verse by the way simply states that we should share our faith throughout the world. It says nothing about forcing unbelievers to recite Christian prayers or creeds. Preaching the Gospel does not mean conquering seven cultural mountains. NAR dominionism is actually antithetical to the cause of Christ.

"Fast forward to the shelter-at-home pandemic mandate where church gatherings were shut down. Even now, some churches have been prohibited from reopening. So, if the church (the people) are relegated to the church building, and the church is shut down, do you see the problem?" -- Karen Hardin

Stale NAR pandemic talking points. Churches were not shut down. ALL public gatherings of more than a specific amount of people were temporarily prohibited. This is not persecution and actually had very little to do with the church until the church started whining because they were built on a need for steady cash flow. Lord knows you cannot keep a mega church doors open when the tithe buckets are not being passed around. There is no problem, as Hardin alludes to. I have had prayer meetings every Friday and plenty of other fellowship activities without endangering my brothers and sisters during this time. Realize too that churches have not been shut down. Only the public gatherings have. I have seen plenty of local churches assisting people in their community throughout this crisis and pastors reaching out to shepherd their sheep personally.

"What about those who gave up on the church years ago and have already been "sheltering at home," separate from the church (building)? As we reflect on all that has transpired in recent months, this gets back to an important question. What is our role in society? It's actually very simple. We are to go into every realm of society as the church (the people) to bring transformation." -- Karen Hardin

Huh? That was one heck of an illogical leap but it is central to NAR dominionist thought. The people who idolize this country think it is their Christian duty to transform society, instead of bringing the individual-transforming Gospel. The realms of society Hardin alludes to are in fact the seven cultural mountains that NAR adherents believe the church must conquer.
