Right Wing Watch has an interesting post about members of the New Apostolic Reformation telling their followers to stop talking about taking dominion and to hide their agenda when speaking to anyone other than their own people.
Os Hillman, the man behind the Reclaiming The Seven Mountain website, has recently suggested that activists should stop using the word “dominion” and instead use the word “influence” because “dominion” make the “secular media [think] that Christians want to rule the world.”
On his website, Hillman posts pieces written by Johnny Enlow, author of “The Seven Mountain Prophecy” which asserts that goal of Christians ought to be to establish a “virtual theocracy” in which government leaders will also be religious leaders so that they can present “the nations of the world to the Lord as His possession” and bring about the return of Christ.
On Hillman’s Seven Mountains website, Enlow says that the best way for Christians to accomplish this goal is through stealth:
“The goal is not just to have Christians in high places, but rather to have Christians who are called to be in high places step into that role. And wearing a ‘Christian’ label on our sleeve isn’t the point. We need to learn to be ‘as wise as serpents and harmless as doves’ and realize that stealth authority and influence are much preferred over overt authority and influence. A low profile diffuses resistance from the opposition.”
And here’s a video of several of the NAR leaders talking about it, with one of them saying that they should only talk about “having dominion over them” when talking to anyone but a fellow traveler.
