Christian Dominionists Meet at Trump’s Washington Hotel to Answer the “Divine Call to War”, 03/09/2018
Last month, while NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre was regaling culture warriors at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference with tales of socialists trying to take away their guns, Christian Dominionists were holding an event called “The Turnaround: An Appeal to Heaven National Gathering,” at Washington’s Trump International Hotel. It featured some of the most prominent Christian Dominionists in the country. Although there are various iterations of Dominionism, Dominionists are united in their belief that conservative Christians should take complete control of all the political, secular and cultural institutions in the country. <snip>
Those leaders, according to People for the American Way’s Right Wing Watch, “are associated with the New Apostolic Reformation, which believes a triumphant, dominion-taking church will help bring about the return of Christ, and many are part of POTUS Shield, a network of self-described apostles and prophets who believe President Trump was anointed by God to help bring that all about.”
Dutch Sheets, the go-to guy for the event, claimed that it would “play a prophetic role in getting the church to function as Christ’s Ekklesia, the representatives of His Kingdom government on earth; as such, we will expose the enemies of God, disrupt their plans, enforce Heaven’s rule, and reform America.” In 2015, Right Wing Watch pointed out, Sheets said, “We must realize that we are God’s governing force on the earth, which have been given keys of authority from Him to legislate from the spiritual realm.” <snip>
“Dominionists are the most extreme faction of the Religious Right — they’re people who literally embrace the concept of theocratic government,” Rob Boston [Communications Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State]told me in an email. “They’re latter-day Puritans with modern-day technology, and they would make this country an officially ‘Christian’ one by force if necessary. Of course, their definition of Christianity is so extreme that it would exclude millions of Americans who attend mainline churches.”
