Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. -- Philippians 3:19-21 (ESV
American Christianity has been infiltrated and slowly poisoned over the past few decades by the New Apostolic Reformation theology known as dominionism. The original model of dominionism stated that Jesus could not return until the church conquered seven cultural mountains, the biggest of which was government. As the movement gained national traction, slicker apostates realized this painted our Savior as needing us in order to do something and they quickly moonwalked away from that notion to just wanting to conquer these mountains as a Christian imperative. Instead of preaching the Gospel, many leaders simply preached politics and still do to this day. Make no mistake about it beloved, this is because of a love for this world and the excess it allows. The leaders in the NAR wield a tremendous amount of power and generate a tremendous amount of money for themselves. Even someone as silly and transparently false as Paula White is sitting on a net worth of over five million dollars and now works for the White House.
Wait a minute preacher! Are you suggesting that the church should not try and influence culture? Of course that is what I am saying because that is what the bible teaches. Jesus was entirely apolitical. He made it known to even His secular opponents that His kingdom was not of this earth. The apostles all wanted Him to be political. They wanted Him to deliver them from the oppression of Rome. The Gospel however does not bother with such inconsequential matters. It is solely concerned about delivering us from the oppression of Satan and of sin. Nothing has changed since then. The Gospel is still solely focused on the deliverance of the oppressed lost from their sin master. It does not care who is in the White House. God will use all for His glory and His purpose. Like the Pharisees of old however, the NAR leadership does not want to relinquish the power, fame and money they enjoy in this world. So suddenly, God is incapable of surviving a Hillary Clinton presidency. Please. All one has to do is look back to the 2012 election to see the ridiculously unbiblical lengths the NAR will stoop to. We had a choice between an uber-liberal Christian in Barack Obama and a member of the Mormon Satanic cult in Mitt Romney. The church overwhelmingly chose the Satanic cult member. They openly bragged about it. Even the Billy Graham Association removed Mormonism from their lists of cults in the run up to the election. I can hear the whataboutism arguments forming already. Because this country is so divided down two distinct paths we fall into the trap of thinking that denouncing one side automatically means tacitly supporting the other. I refuse that distinction. We are not children incapable of three-dimensional thought. My insistence that Christians should not vote for Satanic cult members is not a defacto endorsement of anyone else. It is a cheap argument to say otherwise. I say this as a backdrop to the recent kerfuffle over at Christianity Today, who dared cross the apostate church's line and called for the impeachment of Donald Trump. I say apostate quite intentionally because it is high time that people start looking at who is siding with their arguments.
Yesterday, nearly 200 self-appointed "faith leaders" wrote to Christianity Today demanding that the Editor in Chief be fired over his temerity to have a different opinion and oppose them. Before you get too excited, here is just a partial list of the people you may not realize are standing with you -- Paula White, Jentzen Franklin, James Dobson, Jerry Falwell Jr., Jack Graham, Shane Idleman, Greg Laurie, Cindy Jacobs, Joseph Mattera, Robert Jeffress, Jurgen Matthessius, Robert Morris, Rod Parsley, Eric Metaxas, Tony Perkins, Ralph Reed, George Wood, Lance Wallnau, and Kris Vallotton. This short list runs the gamut within the apostate church. Straight up NAR political hacks such as Dobson, Perkins and Reed to flat out heretics such as Parsley, Wallnau, and Vallotton. Dismiss this point at your peril. These are not people you should want to be even vaguely associated with. From this letter:
"Of course, it's up to your publication to decide whether or not your magazine intends to be a voice of evangelicals like those represented by the signatories below, and it is up to us and those Evangelicals like us to decide if we should subscribe to, advertise in and read your publication online and in print, but historically, we have been your readers. We are, in fact, not "far-right" evangelicals as characterized by the author." -- NAR "Faith Leaders"
Please. There is no one farther right than this group. However, perhaps the heretics have a point. You see the true right wing of this country used to believe in morality. They believed in siding with our allies and against our enemies. They believed in not standing with racists and xenophobes. They never would have tolerated caged children in their name. They believed in lesser government as the counterbalance to the left's belief of expanded government. This bastardized version of the Republican Party is not the far right. They are not even the right. They are simply the wrong.
Christianity Today does have to decide now if they will cower to this threat or correctly decide that they should want as little to do with the signatories as possible. Make no mistake about it. The NAR Purpose Driven Industrial Complex will lead the march to a one world religion that the bible warns us about. They are already in bed with the state and only seek to further that adulterous relationship. As for the aforementioned Dobson, he had a separate public statement:
'"I have read a new editorial published by Christianity Today that promotes impeachment of President Donald Trump. The editors didn't tell us who should take his place in the aftermath. Maybe the magazine would prefer a president who is passionately pro-abortion, anti-family, hostile to the military, dispassionate toward Israel, supports a socialist form of government, promotes confiscatory taxation, opposes school choice, favors men in women's sports and boys in girl's locker rooms, promotes the entire LGBTQ agenda, opposes parental rights, and distrusts evangelicals and anyone who is not politically correct. By the way, after Christianity Today has helped vacate the Oval Office, I hope they will tell us if their candidate to replace Mr. Trump will fight for religious liberty and the Bill of Rights? Give your readers a little more clarity on why President Trump should be turned out of office after being duly elected by 63 million voters? Is it really because he made a phone call that displeased you? There must be more to your argument than that. While Christianity Today is making its case for impeachment, I hope the editors will now tell us who they support for president among the Democrat field. That should tell us the rest of the story."' -- James Dobson
