Leftist Dominionists Hate Competition

Dominionism is still in the news. Jack Cafferty brought it up on his rarely watched TV show. Then there are the current links to Katherine Yurica’s 2004 article “The Despoiling of America: How George W. Bush Became the Head of the New American Dominionist Church/State.” Quoting from J. J. Ligon Duncan’s 1994 article “Moses’ Law for Modern Government, that cites Kenneth L. Gentry’s book God’s Law in the Modern World(1993), she asks “What would a ‘reconstructed’ America look like under the Dominionists?”:

“1. It obligates government to maintain just monetary policies … [thus prohibiting] fiat money, fractional reserve banking, and deficit spending.

“2. It provides a moral basis for elective government officials. …

“3. It forbids undue, abusive taxation of the rich. …

“4. It calls for the abolishing of the prison system and establishing a system of just restitution. …

“5. A theonomic [God’s law] approach also forbids the release, pardoning, and paroling of murderers by requiring their execution. …

“6. It forbids industrial pollution that destroys the value of property. …

“7. It punishes malicious, frivolous malpractice suits. …

“8. It forbids abortion rights. … Abortion is not only a sin, but a crime, and, indeed, a capital crime.”

If this is what Dominionism is all about, then give me more of it! I suspect the majority of Americans would also like a dose of it.

  1. "There is no escaping theocracy [and, therefore, dominion]. A government’s laws reflect its morality, and the source of that morality (or, more often than not, immorality) is its god. It is never a question of theocracy or no theocracy, but whose theocracy [i.e., dominon]…. People recoil at the idea of a theocracy’s morality being forced upon them, but because all governments are theocracies, someone’s morality is always being enforced. This is an inevitability of government. The only question is which god, theocracy, laws, and morality will we choose to live under?

    'The rejection of one god leads inescapably to the choice of another god. If a person, group, court, etc. establishes himself as the final arbiter of right and wrong, then he/they have assumed the attributes of a god. Thus, he/they are theocratic…. Democracy can become theocratic if absolute power is given to the people. …vox populi, vox dei, “the voice of the people is the voice of God.” Those who promote a particular worldview and want to see it implemented socially, educationally, politically, and judicially have elevated the majority to the status of gods….

    'One assumes the mantle of deity when he sets himself up as the ultimate authority. It’s the attributes of deity that makes someone god-like. In the eighteenth century, the French revolutionaries declared “reason” to be the goddess of their new state religion. Nineteenth century France was spoken of as “goddess France” by patriotic figures like Victor Hugo and Charles Maurras. Hegel, the philosophical patron saint of communism, wrote that “the State is the Divine Idea as it exists on earth…. We must therefore worship the State as the manifestation of the Divine on earth…. The State is the march of God through the world.' (Gary DeMar, “Defining Terms: Theocracy,” 26 February 2007, )"

      Ted, while it may or may not be true that USA was established as a human form of government and that it was not God's preferred way for people to be governed, there is no doubt in my mind that the Lord's return to Israel at the beginning of the millennium to rule and reign from Israel for a literal 1000 years is His preferred form of of governing – a theocracy. Righteousness in that kind of government is not possible without Him ruling. So I resort to saying that our constitution was written by men who were inspired yet sinners, and it fails only to the degree that the Church fails to do its assigned job. When much of the church went Laodicea so the evil began encroaching on the USA. and changing the government to the evil sob we have today.

      • Rich, thank you for your thoughts. You wrote, "Righteousness in that kind of government is not possible without Him ruling." Yahweh's righteous (morality) has been codified for us in commandments, statutes, and judgments. Consequently, while, as humans, Christians may never perfectly implement His laws, society will be whole lot better off with them legislating according to His perfect law and altogether righteous judgments (Psalm 19:7-9) than by non-Christians using legislation that at best can be described as "calling evil good and good evil" (Isaiah 5:20).

        You also wrote, "So I resort to saying that our constitution was written by men who were inspired yet sinners…"

        "Through the centuries since the Constitution’s ratification, many people have proclaimed it a divinely inspired document. James Madison, James Wilson, Benjamin Rush, Oliver Ellsworth, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Charles Pinckney, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson, all referred to the Constitution and its government as 'miraculous,' 'from heaven,' 'the hand of God,' 'a finger of that Almighty hand,' and 'the superintending hand of Providence.'… Constitutionalists claim divine inspiration despite the founding fathers’ refusal to invoke Yahweh for His assistance during the convention and despite the fact that Yahweh is never acknowledged, called upon, or quoted in the Constitution…. To claim the Constitution is divinely inspired is to be guilty of practices Yahweh condemned:

        'Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane…. And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord YHWH, when YHWH hath not spoken.' (Ezekiel 22:26-28)"

    My hope is to spend eternity under the theocracy of Jehovah and an earthly government based on God's perfect commands is the only type of government that makes sense to a rational person. Let's face it, how are we doing now under the rule of a satanic government that punishes effort, rewards sloth, oppresses good and supports evil? Evil reigns today in the USA and it is time to overthrow evil and place the good of God in its place. If that doesn't happen, I still have the hope of a Heaven where there won't be any of satan's minions; the democrats.

    The choice every society has had to make at some point in their history is whether to follow the concepts of their religious heritage or become subservient to the state. Judeo Christian ideology has survived for over 2,000 years. How many states have come and gone when their religious heritage has been abandoned?

  4. Gray2Hairs says:

    As an atheist (although raised in a Christian country) I had learned Christian morals. However, when I got involved with attempting to define "morals" that could or should be taught only one religion fit the bill…Christianity. After studying the major religions my selection of Christianity was confirmed. So as an atheist it became clear to me that I would choose a Christian environment over any other form of "government".

    The problem is that many, if not most of the "Christians" I met were absolutely the antithesis of the Christian belief. They lied, cheated stole and basically demonstrated that they were not actually Christians. I recently discovered a group of people who are actually living as Christians and what a difference. Living Christianity is as good and awesome as I had hoped it would be and I am now participating in their church and learning more about living as a Christian.

    The bottom line is that of all the possible governing methods these United States of America chose to be a Christian nation. The Constitution was written to allow free men of good moral character the ability to grow and thrive along with all others. It was not until progressives began changing the perception of Christianity in the early 1900's that we started moving away from what made this country great to the pathetic environment we now live in. Once you remove "morals" from the government the evil will fill the void. It is interesting that racism became a government position under Woodrow Wilson when he segregated the military. Today the same progressives try to blame Christians for that segregation.

    As an atheist I would rather live in a Christian country than any other. It is the only form of government that actually allows people to be free. If living a moral life is not what you wish then there are all the other countries that would welcome you.

    Bob, you wrote a powerful post and I will do my best to support you and all Christians as I attempt to live a Christian life.

    • David R. (Canada) says:

      I whole-heartedly agree with you. Too many non-Christians also enjoy living in a Christian society; even a nominal Christian society, but, then turn around and condemn Christians for their "narrow-mindedness" and "bigotry".
      It's obvious to me that there is an organized plan to destroy Christianity. The destroyers will not move to a non-Christian area; they plan the destruction, that's why they stay.
      And guess who's behind it all.
      This is evidence to all with the eyes to see, that there is an organized plan to destroy Judaism and Christianity, proving that the people of YHWH are in possession of the truth. This has all been foretold (and I believe it).

    Grey2Hairs is an outstanding comment! He is agood example of a Christian. He respects his freedom he has in America. At present our freedoms are threatend by our present government evil , Communistic,Socialistic, Islamic,immoral,political gays and politicons that promote of overthrow of our Constitution and laws. Those that are destroying America must be stopped. The responsibility of christians now is to speak out loud and clear against the political agenda to destroy America. Christians have been too silent too long.
    Evil is present and is destroying our principals and morals. Do you want to stand by and let evil politicians destroy your lives? By not standing up for your God and his principals, you are denying God and his word! In the process you are losing God and your freedom from bondage of the government. Church and State is not the issue here, it's survival and freedom from bondage of governmental control that is against The Constituion of The United States and the peoples wishes. Contact your representatives and loud and clear express your wishes and if they will not comply they will lose their jobs!
