FULLER theological in the major news

Posted by Troy Day in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

FULLER theological in the major news today. Several news pieces claim Fuller graduates are actively bringing more and more evangelical followers into uncharted political territories unprecedented for historical evangelical morality and politics. Not much unlike Liberty that associates with Graham’s political allies

This comes as a surprise though it should not. Most Fuller graduates I know are open democrats. Many of them went to school when Wagner was there. His conservative support came as a surprise for them as while in Fuller he re-developed his social gospel theology including the 7 mountains borrowed from Rousas Rushdoony and Loren Cunningham

The Dominion theology that followed could not borrow much from South America’s social liberation for there was no room for revolution in the US in the 70s after the social movements in the 60s has just done their part. So instead in moved directly into church, media and arts with the hope to conquer commerce, science, and technology in the 21st century. When this did not happen as planed, NAR/kingdom-now imploded back toward politics and media, except now very very openly (to the point of claiming divine prophetic authority over them). CBN and the 700 Club are a prime example of liberation Kingdom-now theological teachings much like the socialistic liberation theology that brought many revolutions to South America.

But to connect Fuller, Liberty and CBN in that manner, at least to me, is beyond bringing politics into the church. As discussed with Dan Irving this is a new attempt to take over politics and bring the kingdom-now on earth without a physically present King Christ. Is such approach even biblical and what the Spirit commands the Church?
Will this move succeed or fail again? What do you think?

    Denominations will continue to exist among the establishment, I.e. the entrenched colleges of episcopal insiders, while at the same time the general ministerial membership networks with every wind of doctrine.

    Sadly, many pastors look to employ whatever seems to be working, translated building crowds, verses building on the scripture and the common salvation/doctrine once given to the church.

    The Kingdom now group along with the NAR look attractive but in central and South America it has created religious power brokers interested in power and position.

    The problem is multifaceted.

    1. Denomination episcopal leaders are somewhat blind to the fact that while they are leading there are fewer and fewer who are following.

    2. The kingdom now/NAR own the airwaves in the Pentecostal/Charismatic world. (Which may say something about being lined with the prince of the air. Lol ?)

    The same is happening in the USA but it is not as obvious simply because USA power brokers do not generally identify themselves as ultimate authority to whom everyone must bow. CA AND SA apostles do as do the self righteous NAR.

    In the USA the power brokers are more subtle in their approach and there is a total lack of discernment among ministers and laity alike

    3. The laity are listening to every wind of doctrine and following the visionaries of social media rather than connecting tightly to a solid local church which is an ark of safety in the time of storm.

    The end result is the death of denominations and the rise of Kingdom now.

    Charles Edward Fuller was a prominent Baptist evangelist revival preacher and an innovative radio broadcaster. What is left out of his legacy? Ify http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/damon-thompson-nar-ramp-and-the-united-states-apostolic-alliance/

    Kingdom now usually is the basis for financial and moral failure for its proponents.

    Look at Earl PaulK, Bishop Long of Atlanta, Jim Baker
