Who is the biggest living dominionist/threat to Christianity?
SC wrote: Hey John, Up late with kidney stone pain! Google Christian Reconstruction or Theonomy and you will get the story. Rushdoony (a Presbyterian) championed this and it took roots in Presbyterianism [one could ask what doesn't? ]in the 60s and has grown considerably. The Paleo Presbys love it. Imagine what they could do to the Baptists if they succeeded! It has also evolved a little and spread to Charismaticism in a slightly different form since the 80s. Essentially those who hold these views believe that it is the duty of Christians to conquer and create a worldwide kingdom: in the case of Theonomists, patterned after the Mosaic Law. They wish to conquer all lands and make them like OT Israel viz. a theocracy. Never mind that Christ said my kingdom is not of this world!! Dr Masters wrote a book critiquing the movement. The blurb about the book (still available) states, "âReconstructionismâ claims that Christians have a mandate to secure dominion over the world, bringing society under the authority of the civil laws of Moses. This book points out the mistakes which have carried the movement far from orthodoxy"
