According to a press release, Pence received a prolonged standing ovation. In his remarks, Pence reportedly declared that once the southern border is secure, the Trump Administration is going to fix ‚Äúthis broken immigration system.‚ÄĚ

Adriel, you are going have to restate what you want to get across?
The Atlantic monthly article gave an example of a typical Pence speech to supporters. While it was a secular audience, I really doubt that he does much different for religious audiences. So, that is why the Atlantic article it is quite interesting and pertinent to the thread.

Nevertheless, Reconstructionist thinkers could not prevent others from feeling a greater sense of urgency about moving up the time-table, or from taking dramatic political action, or in the case of anti-abortion activists, even committing vigilante violence. Indeed, the Institutes and the Reconstructionist works that followed provided a justification for political action that pulled many evangelicals from the political sidelines and into the fray. They also provided an optimistic theology of inevitable victory, suggesting therefore that political action was not only possible but necessary. In the longer term, it also established the often unacknowledged ideological framing for the Christian Right, the basis for 21st Century politics,...

Even if Rusdooney himself, didn't believe in the ability of man to bring salvation oh, It can be seeing that his theology led to that assumption.
They need to keep these news items about Vice President Pence 'front and center' so Democrats can know what they will get if they ever ever ever impeach Trump. Now, with 90 percent of their Fondest Hopes Dashed on the Cruel Rocks of Reality (Mueller Report Released, Trump Exonerated), they will have to look for something else, or continue in their Wild and Crazy Dance to the Left. I am thinking of becoming a professional editorial cartoonist because these news items keep making me think of cartoons!
Liberation theology is no more biblical than dominionism - calling one out and not the other is pointless. Both are not of God, both are worthless.
Diversion is the greatest tactic JL uses and has in his bag of tricks.
The sad part is as long as he's not breaking any of the comment rules, he's allowed to come here and spew out an anti-God agenda, promoting it and hoping it sticks with any. Ignoring him isn't the solution, ignoring SA is.

Their article gives an example of Mike Pence's speech style, I don't believe the term, "Dominionist," is ever brought up; but that is how Mike Pance is described in other articles.ūüĎé

This event was attended by Rodriguez, an Assembly of God pastor, by Rod Parsley, a huckster is a word of faith heretic, Steve Strang, the founder of Charisma Media, and Bishop Harry Jackson, the Presiding Bishop of the International Communion of Evangelical Churches - a Pentecostal. This gathering was loaded with Charismatics. They presented a new 'life manifesto', which is of the social justice flavor. Emcee Rev. Tony Suarez said "‚ÄúWhen Kelly Rosati tells you that if just one-third of American churches adopted a child, there would be no more orphans, you realize all over again how we are the solution the country needs. That‚Äôs what the Justice Summit and the manifesto is all about. It‚Äôs better than social justice. It‚Äôs biblical justice.‚ÄĚ This is the same kind of social justice being pushed by the RCC, birthed out of Liberation theology - the same garbage Jim L pushes daily when he claims we should pay for health care for those who don't work, we should support another man's child, etc. This movement is gaining ground within the 'Reformed' circles as well, including Tim Keller and his blog the Gospel Coalition -https://pulpitandpen.org/2017/03/16/how-the-social-gospel-is-becoming-the-dominant-theology-in-evangelicalism/
