CNP and Dominionists/Reconstructionists are Taking Dominion

Since the word of warning about Dominion Theology has gotten out to many of the blogs, Os Hillman, the man behind the Reclaiming The Seven Mountain website, has recently suggested that activists should stop using the word "dominion" and instead use the word "influence" because "dominion" make the "secular media [think] that Christians want to rule the world." [1] Lance Wallnau expressed that people are taking his message and linking their own interpretation to the meaning of taking dominion over the Seven Mountains. But if you listen to the Seven Mountains presentation, is Wallnau actually saying they want to take over the world, or are we misinterpreting those statements? Let's look closer, so we know we're not really crazy.

On his website, Hillman posts pieces written by Johnny Enlow, author of "The Seven Mountain Prophecy" which asserts that the goal of Christians ought to be to establish a "virtual theocracy" in which government leaders will also be religious leaders, so that they can present "the nations of the world to the Lord as His possession" and bring about the return of Christ.[2]

Can we take those words out of context?

On Os Hillman's site, a video is posted including many of the players from the Dominion movement. Let's watch, then we will learn who they are.

As I stated in yesterday's post, the Council for National Policy (CNP) is an organization within the U.S. government that meets secretly, and is the conservative version of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The Council for National Policy (CNP) is the leading force in the Christian Dominionist and Reconstructionist movements within our country, and like the CFR, it is thought of as a Right-wing cabal that is world government-minded.

There were several members of the CNP who are seen in this Dominionist video, such as:
  • Loren Cunningham, Founder of Youth with a Mission, co-conspirator of 7 Mountains, and he has connections to Billy Graham(a Mason).
  • Bill Bright, CNP, co-conspirator of 7 Mountains
  • Francis Schaeffer, writer of A Christian Manifesto. He was credited for influencing their theological arguments urging political participation by evangelicals.[2]Francis Schaeffer was given a similar message. That message was that if we are to impact any nation for Jesus Christ, then we would have to affect the seven spheres, or mountains of society that are the pillars of any society. [3]
  • Zig Ziglar, CNP. His teachings are laced with various New Age and occultic themes. He was a regular speaker at Robert Schuller's church.[4]
  • Os Hillman, leads the NAR’s “Market Apostles” effort to take Christian dominion over society and culture. He attended Calvary Chapel Bible School, a ministry of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.[5]
I'd say that the Seven Mountains plan for world dominion is exactly what we believe it to be, but with one exception. It will not be the Lord Jesus Christ that the Church will be delivered to, rather into the hands of the Enemy.

"But Jesus called them unto him, and said, 'Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles [heathen kings] exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.'"  Matthew 20:25-28
