Who would be excluded in a Dominionist-ru(i)n(ed) America

“The god of Judaism is the devil. The Jew will not be recognized by God as one of His chosen people until he abandons his demonic religion and returns to the faith of his fathers–the faith which embraces Jesus Christ and His Gospel.” David Chilton, The Days of Vengeance: An Exposition of the Book of Revelation (Ft. Worth, TX: Dominion Press, 1984), p. 127.

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association claims:

Islam has no fundamental First Amendment claims, for the simple reason that it was not written to protect the religion of Islam. Islam is entitled only to the religious liberty we extend to it out of courtesy. While there certainly ought to be a presumption of religious liberty for non-Christian religious traditions in America, the Founders were not writing a suicide pact when they wrote the First Amendment.”(Blog post of23 March 2011)

Pat Roberston extends such to fellow Christians:

“You say you’re supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense, I don’t have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist.” — Pat Robertson, The 700 Club, January 14, 1991

No Jews. No Muslims. No Presbyterians, Catholics, Methodists or Episcoplians? Also, when you get down to it, no Baptists (i.e., cessationists) either.

  1. So it seems that this philosophy is intent more on imposing a view of Scripture that has not wrestled with Jesus’ claims and comments on Torah. So rather than proclaim Jesus as Lord and obedience of faith to the nations this is more of a proclamation of moral imperatives based on Scriptural proof texts. This would then be another enemy of Gospel.
    Thanks for the article and clarification. It explains the nuanced position nicely.

  2. Joel,

    It’s becoming clearer that in our conversations, and in my reading of Jennings’ The Christian Imagination , that Christian Reconstructionism is a supersessionist project. Even Christian nation building without recognition of our Gentile place in scripture is going to end up being anti-Gospel
