The posts on “Just the BOOK” have ended up going in several directions—all of which are trying to warn of the current, very prevalent error and deception that permeates our lives in about every area, resulting in, or because of, a mass exodus from the Truth of God’s Word.
Reconstructionist, Replacement/Dominion Theology Influence
My original intention (although I have not been able to address the subject as I wanted), in writing the “Just the BOOK” blog, was to warn about the influence of the reconstructionist/replacement and dominion theology folk that are so much a part of our government, and who believe they are reclaiming/redeeming our culture and country—trying to make it Christian so Jesus can set up his kingdom. (This is unbiblical of course and I have discussed some of the aspects of this in my posts.) I present a case in point:
Here is an article regarding a quote of presidential candidate Mike Huckabee who has coauthored the book Kids Who Kill with reconstructionist, dominionist, George Grant. Mr. Huckabee’s quote: “I hope we answer the alarm clock and take this nation back for Christ.”
Here is a quote from The Changing of the Guard: Biblical Principles for Political Action authored by George Grant:
“Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a holy responsibility to reclaim the land for Jesus Christ—to have dominion in the civil structures, just as in every other aspect of life and godliness….World conquest. That’s what Christ has commissioned us to accomplish. We must win the world with the power of the Gospel. And we must never settle for anything less….Thus, Christian politics has as its primary intent the conquest of the land—of men, families, institutions, bureaucracies, courts, and governments for the Kingdom of Christ. It is to reinstitute the authority of God’s Word as supreme over all judgments, over all legislation, over all declarations, constitutions, and confederations.”
“Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.”—John 18:36
As I began posting about the current departure from the Word of God, I realized that this Error and Deception started influencing “Christianity” 2000 years ago in the first century AD, and began writing a series of posts accordingly. As I researched, I began to see the influence the Monastic orders still have on our world today, and I promised and intended to do several posts discussing the effect several of those Monastic orders continue to have in the 21st century.
As I researched that information, it came to my attention that the original Lie and Deception in the garden of Eden is behind all false systems of belief, and commented that I would start a new series about the roots of false religions before going back to my original 2000 Years of Deception post.
That intent was interrupted with what I felt was the need to warn parents of the substitution of “eternal life” for Jesus in the testimony of Awana/Kids’ Evangelical Explosion. And along with that, I posted an article on the influence of the unbiblical use of the terms “vision casting” and “biblical worldview,” used and promoted by the Awana/Rorheim Institute, and not just RI, but much of so called evangelical “Christianity.”
The information in my last post gave credence to the idea that the purpose of Biblical Worldview was/is to bring evangelicals together with Roman Catholicism. In my research, I also uncovered information (about which I hope to write a post) which takes me back to the original purpose of the JTB blog—that of showing that there is an agenda, and there are groups that want to control the government, and they are using “Christianity” and/or Spiritual sounding concepts to gain support.
So, what am I saying? I am hopeful of posting in the areas I promised, but it may be in a different order than I originally thought. I don’t want my faithful readers (should there be some) to think that I have forgotten what I said I would do.
“To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”—Revelation 1:5, 6
