Rick Perry is a Dominionist

I was looking in the archives of my Yahoogroups at Rushdooney and the Christian Reconstructionists. My posts are real prophetic warnings now that Rick Perry has emerged as the Presidential candidate for the Republican Party founded by my kinfolk – who are related to the Stewart Windsor Royals of Britain. As far back as 2003, I am sounding a warning, providing much proof our Democracy is in peril. There is a post where I speak of being censored, evicted and banned from groups where I thought I would find a sympathetic ear, but what I found were ex-Liberals hoarding a secular heresy that sprang up from the movie The Davinci Code. I ran afoul of many pseudo priests, knights, and priestesses that claimed they owned a special vision from the Jesus Blood line, but, when I challenged their claims, and bid them to deliver their prophecies – I was out of there!

In the Bible, there are real rules for being a prophet – especially a false prophet! It looks like I was having visions about the Rose of World Democracy – before I read the Roza Mira prophecy from Russia. In my blogs I provided much proof Jesus and God do not condone the move of the Christian-right into politics. Several months ago a drunken poet and bully told my childhood friend my blogs were dangerous, and he would try to bring them down. Did he succeed?

The truth is, I have been very topical for over eight years! All alone I cried out a warning – like a voice in the wilderness!

Dominionism, in the context of politics and religion, is the tendency among some politically active conservative Christians to seek influence or control over secular civil government through political action, especially in the United States. The goal is either a nation governed by Christians, or a nation governed by a conservative Christian understanding of biblical law.
Put simply, follows of Dominionism believe they have a God-given right to rule. GOP presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry have a history of being affiliated with Christian Reconstructionists, such as Perry’s relationship with New Apostolic Reformation and Bachmann’s relationship to John Eidsmoe, an Oral Roberts University professor, and nationalist historian David Barton who are both Christian Reconstructionists

The origins of Dominionism – R. J. Rushdoony
Dominionism derives from a small fringe sect called Christian Reconstructionism, founded by a Calvinist theologian named R. J. Rushdoony in the 1960s. According to Rushdoony and other Reconstructionists including Gary North and Greg Bahnsen, the idea of dominion drawn from Genesis 1:28 implied a theonomy (“rule of the law of God”), which would require all citizens to observe the strict Reconstructionist form of Christianity, and which would punish moral sins ranging from blasphemy to homosexuality with death. Rushdoony wrote that “man is summoned to create the society God requires . . . bringing all things under the dominion of Christ the King.”
An integral part of the message put forward by Dominionism is to conquer the seven mountains of society, or the seven mountains of culture, if they are to impact any nation for Jesus Christ. The seven mountains are business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family and religion.
This from Discerning the World
“The devil seems to be winning new ground while the Church of Christ retreats even further into its sanctuaries hoping the Lord will come and take us to Heaven out of here! But that is not going to happen, because the ‘Dominion Mandate’ does not include the option to hunker down fearfully in our religious cocoons hoping the bogey man will go away and leave us alone.”

Rushdoony then pursued history – of the world, of the United States, and of the church. He famously maintained that Calvinistic Christianity provided the intellectual roots for the American Revolution and had thus always had an influential impact in American history. The American Revolution, according to Rushdoony, was a “conservative counterrevolution” to preserve American liberties from British usurpation and it owed nothing to the Enlightenment. He further argued that the United States Constitution was a secular document in appearance only; it didn’t need to establish Christianity as an official religion since the states were already Christian establishments.[2] He would further this study in his works on American ideology and historiography, This Independent Republic: Studies in the Nature and Meaning of American History and The Nature of the American System.

Rushdoony’s most important area of writing, however, was law and politics, as expressed in his small book of popular essays Law & Liberty and discussed in much greater detail in his three-volume, 1,894-page magnum opus, The Institutes of Biblical Law. With a title modeled after Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion, Rushdoony’s Institutes was arguably his most influential work. In the book, he proposed that Old Testament law should be applied to modern society and that there should be a Christian theonomy, a concept developed in his colleague Greg Bahnsen’s controversial tome Theonomy and Christian Ethics, which Rushdoony heartily endorsed. In the Institutes, Rushdoony supported the reinstatement of the Mosaic law’s penal sanctions. Under such a system, the list of civil crimes which carried a death sentence would include homosexuality, adultery, incest, lying about one’s virginity, bestiality, witchcraft, idolatry or apostasy, public blasphemy, false prophesying, kidnapping, rape, and bearing false witness in a capital case.[9] Although supporting the separation of church and state at the national level, Rushdoony understood both institutions as under the rule of God,[10] and thus he conceived secularism as posing endless false antitheses, which his massive work addresses in considerable detail. In short, he sought to cast a vision for the reconstruction of society based on Christian principles.
