Christian Supremacy Movement


Concerning questions that have been posed as to the biblical basis for the actions of Ministries, Church organizations and individual Christians involved in political maneuverings and power grabbing -- categorically neither Christ nor His apostles would have ever been involved in politics.

John 18:36 Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight.


Those who do not chose to understand this passage as part of an agenda of willful blindness for personal gain amid supposed “bible believing” Churches and denominations is a quite startling development  that began like most of the other virulent deviations from the words of Christ that cropped up in the early 1980’s 

The ones who adhere to this darkness as light are scrabbling in  the slime pits for political power, seeking legislation for empowerment  and sending forth lobbyists to pervert politicians by offering then bribes, favors that many times  are illegal for politicians to do themselves,  showering them with praise – that is an abomination before the Lord,  speaking to them cunningly crafted words of deceit and offering, in turn for currying favor, to gain a place in these legislators ears, and to ultimately have legislative power over unbelievers. These efforts are running into the millions.

Why do these ministries do these evil and perverse things instead of sending out missionaries and evangelists – to the most needy places in the nation like New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington DC?

The answer is that these “Evangelical ministries churches and denominations no longer have faith in God.  They have departed from their forbearers who lived by faith trusting God for all their needs as they pioneered Churches all across this nation, from city to city, town to town, village to village, and hamlet to hamlet. Those that live today want no part of this but seek rather through abuse of the Federal Government to institutionalize themselves as a state protected religion being granted super citizenship rights.       

What rights did Christ claim? What privilege did Christ seek? If we are truly his disciples which these are clearly not –then the servant can not be above the Master.   

But just try to tell this that to the militant followers of Jerry Falwell, The Christian Coalition, Pat Robertson, and the disciples of latest inductee to the Christian Supremacy Movement Dr. James Dobson and you will discover that a lot of these peoples “Christian rhetoric” is little more than Church meeting rhetoric, these wolves in sheep’s clothing people are highly manipulative, self-seeking  self-serving and self-aggrandizing. And woe unto any who dare question what they are seeking to do, or their motives in seeking to do the evil in the name of the Lord that they do.

Here recently we have had a huge scandal with evangelical preacher that pastured a church of thousands, was the head of a denomination, and the head of a huge lobbying machine – the man was utterly corrupt in every way shape and form and led on his wife and the members of his church – and yet when he fell none cried for his wife and children and none cried for the sheep that were dying in his church – instead a cry rose up across the land of what a powerful lobbying voice was lost and who shall replace him?

How could anything be farther away from the words and actions of Jesus Christ?

Consider that before Christ began His ministry He forsook all.

Jesus left His father, mother, brothers, sisters, and brethren first before he ever asked his disciples to do so.  But wasn’t all that Christ walked away from. For Jesus Christ was also the first born in His earthly family – yes and that had great significance to His standing in the house of Joseph of Nazareth. Christ as the firstborn was entitled to the seat as the head of the greater household that is over the households also of his other brothers and sisters (Greek A-Delphos. Adelphos is used 5 times in Genesis 4 in speaking of Cain and Able.) as the family spokesman. Christ also had legal claim to the family inheritance in the House of Joseph of Nazareth as well. – That would have consisted of 1) The family business, 2) The family home, 3) And whatever other wealth and possessions Joseph had accumulated over those 30 years.

So here we see that Christ not only left His father, mother, brothers, sisters, and brethren to follow God but He left the houses and lands of his inheritance as well.

Because of this – we see that Jesus was not at all like the Pharisees in that He first walked in the commandments he received of the Lord, long before he ever issued them to His disciples. And we can say with some certainty that Jesus Christ gave up everything He owned or had rights to in this world, so that in actuality according to the Gospels Jesus during his entire ministry only possessed His sandals, the one garment He wore, a cloak, and possibly a walking stick.

Mark 6:3 Is not this (Jesus) the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. (I have read in Justin Martyr’s writings in 160 AD that Jesus was a carpenter of farm implements – more particularly he tells us that Jesus had made ox yokes, and plows.)

Philippians 2:7-8 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

It is an indisputable fact that Christ made Himself of no reputation. And it is also an indisputable that before Christ began his ministry He forsook houses, lands, family, and His rightful inheritance as the firstborn of Joseph of Nazareth. I want you to see that like Abram, Jesus willing gave all that up to become a sojourner seeking a kingdom that was not made with hands.

But we need to see something even more powerful than this, by taking a closer examination of what actually transpired during Christ’s ministry. After Jesus gave up houses and lands and was baptized by John the Baptist Jesus went into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

Matthew 4:1-3, 8-10  Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. And when the tempter came to him . . . 8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.  (Here the carnal preachers and teachers of this world have for generations carried a lot of water for the devil in how they have traditionally interpreted this passage.  Yes, it is true that Christ here has rebuked the devil for offering Him all the kingdoms of this world and the earthly glory, the earthly wealth, and the earthly power that they represent – in exchange for physically bowing to the devil and acknowledging his false lordship over the world and all of the things of this world.  

But all the serpent’s temptations here were laced with subtlety. – So that if Christ rose up in anger and indignation as the self righteous militant followers of Jerry Falwell, the Christian Coalition, Pat Robertson and Dr James Dobson, and would say: You know what devil, not only am I going to not bow to you over the world and the things of the world, but now I’m mad. And I’m going to personally ruin your little monopoly you’ve been running here. I’m going to personally physically strip every one of these kingdoms away from you one by one. I ‘m going to use miracles, the voice of God, and all the angels at my disposal, and every nation is going to become my disciples here and now.  And devil after I take all of them over with my revival business ministry, I’ll have all their riches, all their wealth, and all their armies working for me.  And when I get done I’ll tear up your deed to this whole world. and me and my Christian Supremacist  boys down at the local church are going to get together a posse and ride hard and party hardy, as we take the rule this world from you with a fist of iron, and strike terror in any dirty sinners that still won’t believe.  (Does this sound at all like Christ talking in the Gospels? Doesn’t it rather sound strangely like a lot of teaching that you’ve heard, by a lot of notable evangelistic types? )  

What was going on here is the devil was tempting Christ to use the power of God to consume upon His own lusts. Aka – for His own desires (Bread, in the second temptation to put the devil in his place and force him to save Christ)

Luke 4:23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: (Christ did not heal himself on the way to the Cross and neither did he remove his wounds even after he was raised from the dead and in his glorified body)

In the third temptation the devil showed Christ in a vision all the kingdoms of the earth and said It is mine to give to whom I will If you will bow before me I will give you all these kingdoms – to this Christ responded thou shalt only worship the Lord your God. (These preachers and ministries are in truth bargaining with the devil for little bits and pieces of the kingdom of the United States, which the serpent is all too happy to sell and resell to all that would come to deal with him.)

We need to now see that during Christ’s ministry as the Messiah and the heir apparent to the throne of David that he was continually offered the throne of David by all around him. It is in the word Messiah, it is in The Son of David, It is the question that Pontius Pilot asks, it is the rage of the Pharisees it is the words on the lips of all of Israel as Jesus rides in on the donkey. It is the words continually on the lips of his carnal blind disciples as they fight continually about their positions in Christ’s earthly kingdom, Even during the last supper they fought over it, and after the resurrection the question again comes up once more.

John 10:23-25 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

For over three decades I have heard preachers time and time again proclaim that Christ at any time could have taken what was rightfully His, that Christ could have taken the throne of David. And all will say a hearty Amen. And with this same early sensual logic the same preachers tell us that it is not Christ’s will that any of us be poor. That it is not Christ’s will that any of us be sick, and that Christ has given the world into the hands of the Church that we can rule and reign with him.

What I am going to say now has been a mystery and I cannot expect anyone to understand it except that the Father has given it to them. It is utterly false that Christ could have taken the throne of David at anytime. As he has forsaken his natural father mother sisters brothers houses and lands and made Himself of no reputation, so too did Christ forsake his inheritance as the Messiah and Heir to David’s throne. Forsaking those Jerusalem, the palace of Herod the lands and brethren that would at his word sworn instant allegiance to Him. And on this point the devil goaded and tempted Him daily to seize upon it.

Simon Peter one day rebuked Christ that he should not die, and Christ rebuked Satan for speaking through Peter’s mouth. His disciples were speaking the words of the wicked one regarding an earthly kingdom, the people of Israel were speaking the enemy’s words, the Pharisees and Priests and Christ was not taken in by any of this talk. He refused to accept any of it. Instead Jesus testified days before he was crucified: “Foxes have holes and birds have nests but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.

As the disciples were before they were converted after Christ rose from the dead so are the preachers and teachers of this day. They continually preach and teach the words of the wicked one. And what are those words?

They are that we can do what the Master did not and still be his servants.

They are that we cannot give up houses or lands, brothers, sisters, and our earthly inheritances and still be a disciple of Christ.

That as a member of the Church that we can love mammon and the things of this world and still be a disciple of Christ. That we can exalt ourselves, come in our own names, exalt our own ministries, receive the praise of men, exalt other people’s ministries, and still be a disciple of Christ. And that we can learn the words of others and teach men to do so and still be the disciple of Christ.

As the disciples were confused about Christ ruling an earthly kingdom before they were converted after Christ rose from the dead so are the preachers and teachers of this day are confused about the Church being called to rule and reign as an earthly kingdom here and now. And this is of increasing significance in a church that ever increasingly is preaching greater corruption in the area of financial wealth and earthly prosperity and a physical earthly kingdom.

Jesus said the servant is not above the master. If our Master forsook all his earthly rights, and goods to seek the excellency of God wandering the fields and villages with no certain home and that He himself had to pray for His daily bread -- where does this put us? Whose disciple are we if we possess what He Himself put off and counted all as loss? Jesus said” “No man can have two masters and yet we have more than one. Jesus said: “You cannot be my disciple and serve – money, or the things of this world and yet we do. I we are not Christ’s disciple, If Jesus is not our master than who’s servant are we and to whom do we belong?

Mark 10:28-30 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

Luke 5:11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.

Luke 14:26-17 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

Luke 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

In the early 1970’s Evangelicals used to sing

I have decided to follow Jesus
I have decided to follow Jesus
I have decided to follow Jesus
No turning back, no turning back

Take this whole world but give me Jesus
Take this whole world but give me Jesus
Take this whole world but give me Jesus
No I won’t turn back, I won’t turn back.

How could this whole movement in a single generation have gone so far astray?
