The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on the gay marriage question, and the Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals are reeling from the blow. There is nothing like a one-two punch, so we have a second glove to the jaw for them. We ran into the following really good article that effectively debunks all of the “Christian Nation” nonsense that we hear from Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals these days. Please click on the following safe link and read:
Most Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals are unaware of the fact that the Christian Reconstructionism heresy against the universal church of Jesus Christ was created in 1958 by an obscure, evil Presbyterian minister by the name of Dr. Rousas J. Rushdoony. This heresy is one of the main reasons for all of the Christian Nation talk we have heard in recent years. The Christian Reconstructionism heresy goes by three other names: Dominionism, Theonomy, and 7 Mountains Movement. Most current-day Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals have never even heard of Rousas J. Rushdoony and those four terms. Nonetheless, parachurch leaders and organizations, books in Christian bookstores, and even deceived Christian fundamentalist and conservative evangelical pastors have been indoctrinating their flocks into this heresy, which is at the very root of the recent Christian Nation rumblings. As specified by the leaders of the Christian Reconstructionist movement, this indoctrination must be implemented in a slow, subtle, and stealthy manner nationwide so the people who are being indoctrinated will not be consciously aware of their indoctrination.
Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals are also largely unaware of the fact that this heresy has a stranglehold on many homeschooling parents. Adherents of this radical theology actually play an instrumental role in the creation and distribution of homeschool learning materials. In short, the Evil One is indoctrinating many parents and homeschool children with subtle lies and distortions of the truth right on their own kitchen tables so they will be properly primed to one day fully accept the radical and rebellious Christian Reconstructionism, Dominionism, Theonomy, and 7 Mountains Movement heresy. The following are three really good summaries and critiques of their most basic founder (Dr. R. J. Rushdoony) and this four-headed monster from Hell that is trying to masquerade as the Christian faith in our times:
As you can see from reading the second and third items immediately above, a number of Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals understand that Christian Reconstructionism, Dominionism, Theonomy, and 7 Mountains Dominionism are heretical in nature. Unfortunately, most of the ordinary fundies who sit in pews know nothing about these heresies. Because of this massive ignorance, they become easy prey for any renegade fundie pastor or Republican political operative who is in favor of these screwed up and just plain dangerous ideologies. These ideologies drive the notion of turning the United States into a Christian Nation—meaning an American dictatorial theocracy run by fallible fundie Ayatollahs who claim to be the eyes, ears, mouth, hands, and feet of God himself on Planet Earth. If you know anything about human history, you know how that works out. Large numbers of people die at the hands of a small collection of evil men who claim to be representatives of God—but are really representing only themselves and the evil passions and excesses of their own hearts.
