Replacement Theology says incorrectly that the church has replaced Israel and that the promises in the Old Testament meant for Israel, now belong to the church.
The result of this philosophy is that the leaders of churches with this unbiblical belief—whether Protestant, Catholic, Evangelical, or Emergent—feel that it is their responsibility to set up God’s kingdom here on earth.
Replacement Theology results in a social gospel. When combined with Dominion Theology, RT becomes an agenda for making everything (including culture and government) Christian, in preparation, they think, to have everything ready for Jesus to come back and set up his Kingdom. These folk are ignoring the fact that God’s Kingdom is within and that ONLY Jesus, the Redeemer can set things right.
