As I have written on here many times, I am opposed to Christian Dominionist movement, of which Ted Cruz is a part of.
Well, someone finally has did a write up on the movement. Ronnie Herne over at Newswithviews.com writes about the movement:
“Zealous men force their way in.” The Secret Kingdom by Pat Robertson (p. 82)
Dominionism. What is it? Where does it come from? And most importantly, where is it headed?
Dominionism simply means “dominance.” In our parlance here it means Christian dominance. The concept is as old as recorded history. It’s a desire to take over the world and remake it in your own image.
Dominionism here in the U.S. has been seriously percolating since the 70s or very early 80s. Many variants exist in the belief structures but there is only one goal: creating the earthly Kingdom of God. It matters not that Christ said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” The Dominionists forge ahead. They believe that in Genesis I:26-28 God gave man dominion over the earth. But when man fell from Grace many dominionists believe that Satan took over dominion of the earth.
They believe that Almighty God Himself cannot get the earth back unless the Dominionists first create a Christian government over all the world, starting right here in the United States. The Dominionists will create this Kingdom of God.
Only when this Kingdom is created can Christ come again the second time. And somewhere at or around that time, the good Christians will experience Rapture and be taken or ascended into heaven, and the other Christians and non-Christians will face maybe 7 years of Tribulation.
The Dominionists are a self-aggrandizing lot. Not just any Christian will do. No, a good Presbyterian like Donald Trump doesn’t qualify. The bulk of your Catholics don’t make the cut either. And forget the “Judeo-” in “Judeo-Christian”.
I highly recommend that you read the rest of that; as it is very, very, enlightening. Only thing that she missed is that the fact that Christian Dominionism is a politicization of “Kingdom Now Theology” made famous by Jack Hayford. Other than that; this article above and linked, is excellent.
