Christian World Domination?

The executive director of the “influential” Coral Ridge Ministries, whose pastor is Rev. D. James Kennedy, once infamously remarked:

“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. It is dominion we are after. Not just influence. It is dominion we are after. Not just equal time. It is dominion we are after. World conquest. That’s what Christ has commissioned us to accomplish.”

This statement, of course, has been held up as proof of a Christian plot to rule the world, particularly when faced with the globally dominating goal of Islam. Defenders, including Grant himself, claim that they are not out to subvert the U.S. Constitution, which makes them different from Islamists, who want to overthrow the Constitution and impose sharia law on Americans against their will. It’s an important difference, but since technically speaking Grant is probably correct that the New Testament mandates could be interpreted to compel Christians to dominate the world regardless of any national constitutions, in reality the critics are probably correct to be on their guard against this kind of speaking, from whatever faction it may come.

  1. Christian World Domination
    When I read things like CWD it makes me so happy that I am not a christiian who believes in any of that kind of thinking.
    I believe we are sold snake oil by all the major religions as welll as a good chunk of New age charlatans. Seems like their everywhere. Oh well it is the Kali Yuga and this is how is should be. Ir’s always darkest before the dawn 🙂 From reading you Book Christ Conspiracy I have recalibrated my thoughts about my own spirituality with an even more profound understanding than I had before. You substantiated some of the things that I was thinking intuitely. Like passing a heavy thought stone from one mind to another it was difficult to comprehend and on some levels shocking. But in the final analysis I feel a greater understanding of myself and who I am. Thanks again, Finally, I remind you what you of something you probably know better than I do, namely that when you discover the truth, and it exposes what was hitherto thought to be the truth, they will go after you. They will be angry and do their best to destroy your work. This is good. It shows that they are worried. The awakening has taken countless centuries but what was once hidden will soon be revealed inside the hearts of all Humanity. You are what you have been looking for!
