But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Okay, let’s get to Rousas John Rushdoony (and reference his son-in-law, Gary North). These two guys are fairly big in the modern Dominionist movement.

Coming Out of the Box with the Last Reformation?

Written by

Torben Sondergaard says we are in the “Last Reformation.”

Torben Søndergaard is a guy who firmly believes Christians are missing out today. He wants us to get back to living the book of Acts.  He has an on-line (free) school that is not designed to be “a lot of theology to your head.” His emphasis is on what he...

Another end times “prophet”? Many are beginning to think so…

Before we get to John Rushdoony and Gary North, I wanted to point out another individual I came across (thanks Janna), who also believes Donald Trump is “anointed” by God. Is God rolling His eyes at all the claims regarding Trump? These people...

I want to talk about three guys, two of whom have been extremely important in the Dominionist movement early on and one who also holds sway over hundreds of thousands through his media programming....

As a person studies through the New Testament, especially the gospels, it should become clear that Jesus – God the Son – had (and continues to have), absolute authority over illnesses, demons, and even death itself. He is GOD and was so even as He walked this earth in actual human form, as the God-Man.

Jesus tackled problems,...

Aside from what appear to be obvious distortions of biblical truth within Dominionism, it is disconcerting that so many of those involved in it actually deny they are involved in it. This alone should cause people to see it for what it is: a complete deception.

The sad reality is that it seems that many proponents of Dominionism...

Last time, we briefly defined Dominionism and there is much more we need to say about that, which is what this short series is all about. As we noted previously, Dominionism is essentially the belief that the Church must move against the kingdom of darkness by taking “back” society. This is allegedly done by electing...

Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a holy responsibility to reclaim the land for Jesus Christ — to have dominion in civil structures, just as in every other aspect of life and godliness…But it is dominion we are after. Not just a voice…Christian politics has as its primary intent the conquest of the land...

In a recent article from Charisma News, Pastor Chris Mathis tells us that “revival” has come to America’s shores.

We are living in the greatest times the world has ever seen. God, by His divine plan, chose for us to be alive right now in this time—not in the days of the Welsh Revival, or in the days of Azusa or any other...

Is America like Israel according to God?

It is very important that readers understanding something. I am not naming names because I enjoy it. The only reason I am naming names at all is because it is easier to discuss what that particular individual believes and espouses. Otherwise, the generalities can become way too confusing.

That said, I must...

In my first article in this short series – What Are We to Think of the Prophets and Apostles that Exist Today? Part 1 – we introduced the subject of how people tend to go beyond God’s Word as they pursue ecstatic experiences, visitations from the Lord, signs and wonders, and other supernatural manifestations. As noted...


There are those who say the Bible is their final authority, but in reality, do not see it as such. If they (or someone they trust), receive a word of knowledge or a word of prophecy, they do not bother to take the time to test the source, whether it’s from Satan or God (or their own imagination). Oftentimes, they will simply accept what...

Our Relationship with Jesus is a Call to Fellowship Featured

Written by

We know that Jesus is both fully God and fully human, a perfect blend of two natures into one Individual who lived a completely sinless life on earth. This sinless quality allowed Him to offer Himself as a propitiation for our sin. He literally became our atonement on the cross so that we would not have to suffer God’s wrath. All that is...

Romans 8: Life in the Spirit, Part 4

Written by

Romans 8:8 tells us the following truth:

Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

This simply means that even though Christians are “born again” or “born from above” (cf. John 3), the truth is that Christians can live just like non-Christians. When we do, we do several things:

  1. we break off our fellowship with...

Romans 8: Life in the Spirit, Part 2

Written by

Though Jesus defeated and condemned sin in the flesh, it is still something we also must choose through the empowering of His Spirit, not our own strength.

Do you ever feel as though you work “too hard” at being a Christian? Let me explain. One of the main goals of the enemy of our souls is to cause us to become so inwardly focused on...

Romans 8: Life in the Spirit, Part 1 Featured

In a recent post about the deaths of celebrities, I referenced Romans 8. As I indicated there, that chapter opens with a fact/promise and closes with another one. These promises are for the believer, the person who has placed their trust in God in Christ based on what He has accomplished on our behalf.

Since that post was published, others...

The world lost Doris Roberts…and 149,999 other people this past Sunday.

For anyone who’s been paying attention, people we tend to “honor” as celebrities have been dying since the first of year and the world, for the most part, has been keeping track. In March alone, several well-known actors and celebrities have gone onto...

How Evil Can Society Become? Featured

Written by

It is very difficult for me to actually picture just how bad society was back in Noah’s day (Genesis 6 – 9), when God saw what He saw as recorded for us in Genesis 6:5.

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

I cannot imagine that...

Lesbian journalist Masha Gessen says traditional marriage should be eliminated. Is that the ultimate game plan? It is part of it.

The other day, I was reading comments on several forums that had to do with various theological interpretations connected to the End Times. This area is called Eschatology.
