Is C. Peter Wagner lying or backtracking?

Okay, so you know how when cameras get turned on, people tend to clam up if they have been saying stupid stuff? Well, Wagner and the other Dominionists would have us believe that they have no real stake in this election, and wouldn’t dare seek to take over the Government. That, of course, has never been their plan. I mean, we’ve just misunderstood them, that’s all or maybe we are in a conspiracy against them! Except…. the internet has a long memory. From a letter he wrote in 2007: Lance’s trademark teaching relates to what he calls the seven


Even Al Jazeera knows about C. Peter Wagner

I would like to dedicate this post to my friend, Peter, across the pond, in future America East: With Representative Michele Bachmann’s victory in the Ames, Iowa straw poll, and Texas Governor Rick Perry’s triumphal entrance into the GOP presidential primary, there’s been a sudden spike of attention drawn to the extremist religious beliefs both candidates have been associated with – up to and including their belief in Christian dominionism. (In the Texas Observer, the New Yorker, and the Daily Beast, for example.) The responses of denial from both the religious right itself and from the centrist Beltway press


Yes, C. Peter Wagner is a Dominionist and A Reconstructionist

I generally like Peter Kirk, but his stance in defending Wagner (a link to all my stories on Wagner) and the Bunch and trying to deflect the charge of dominionism from them is wrong. First, Wagner has come out now, now that their is significant media attention, to declare that he isn’t like those dominionists. The problem is, is that the internet has a long memory and Peter’s words are well recorded. He says that he doesn’t believe in a theocracy, but in other places, he promotes a theonomy. He loves the Seven Mountain Mandate which is built upon

The Apostles are going to be very happy tomorrow

It is expected that Governor Rick Perry is going to announce, officially, that he is entering the race for the White House in 2012. He is supported, and from the looks of The Response, supports, the ‘apostles’ of the New Apostolic Reformation, a heretical organization connected to hate groups and theologically apostate individuals. On this day, the Lord’s messengers arrived in the form of two Texas pastors, Tom Schlueter of Arlington and Bob Long of San Marcos, who called on Perry in the governor’s office inside the state Capitol. Schlueter and Long both oversee small congregations, but they are

Picking up on the New Apostolic Reformation

First, read this nice little essay on the New Apostolic Reformation, led by C. Peter Wagner. Personally, this is nothing that hasn’t been said before, but it is getting traction: “Prior to 9/11, the Taliban government in Afghanistan did not register very much on American radar screens, with one notable exception: when it blew up two colossal images of the Buddha in Bamiyan province in early 2001. But destruction of treasured artifacts isn’t just limited to the Taliban. There’s a right-wing politico-religious presence centred in the US, but with a global reach, engaging in similar practises, destroying religious and

Warren’s P.E.A.C.E. Plan and Wagner’s Dominionism

This is sort of an answer to someone about Rick Warren’s involvement with Dominionism which is currently being led by C. Peter Wagner: C. Peter Wagner yet again – Bruce Wilson finds an interesting quote from Wagner’s 2008 book Dominion! How Kingdom Action Can Change the World, in which he discusses Rick Warren’s “P.E.A.C.E.” Plan, which seeks to improve conditions in Africa (p. 174): I think the P.E.A.C.E. plan fits most comfortably into Phase One, the “social action” phase of strategies for obeying God’s cultural mandate. The Phase Two emphases on strategic-level spiritual warfare and associated activities have not
