People have been driven out of churches because of the abuse of this militant dominionism, and have suffered spiritual, emotional and mental harm. Marginalized groups in society such as GLBT have been their target. Some leaving NAR and dominionism (walkaways) have not made it. Now in praying evil and destruction on their enemies NAR and neo-charismatics are demanding God do their will and remove the obstacles that prevent them from reaching their goals of dominion (ruling). We are either for them or against them, and they seek to rule their churches, communities and countries as apostles and masters. God is a heavenly hit man they believe is at their beck and call.
On a separate but, I think, related note, I was watching a bit of Jack Van Impe on the telly last night. I found it very confusing. He was railing against the Communism that he was sure was coming under Obama, telling us that we had to be careful, to take a stand. And then he said that was all a part of the coming New World Order that is foretold in scripture and is therefore, I assume, irresistible.
He also said he had some “essential information” for me about the coming New World Order, but I’d have to order his DVD to get it. But I was watching then. He had my attention. If there was something he thought I had to know, couldn’t he have just told me?
You don’t think he was just after my money, do you?
We live in strange times.
