In many Christian circles references to the sovereignty of God are met with hostility. Even many Reformed churches now emphasize the “doctrines of grace” as opposed to the sovereignty of God.
As real as is God’s grace, its emphasis can be self-serving. Grace benefits man and can feed a consumer-oriented message. Grace must be preached as the gift of a sovereign God. Calvinism is today associated with the five “T-U-L-I-P points, and this is as far as many “Calvinists” take it, yet Calvin’s strength came from his emphasis on the sovereignty of God and the authority of the Word. T-U-L-I-P is only Calvinism as it applies to soteriology, the doctrine of salvation.
The message of Christian Reconstruction through dominion is a throwback to the older emphasis on the sovereignty of God. Covenant theology is the sovereignty of God as applied to the redemptive history. Postmillennialism is the sovereignty of God over history. Anti-statism denies sovereignty to the state because it belongs to God.
Our supporters help us promote this “big picture” approach to the Christian’s responsibility in the Kingdom of God. It is their faithfulness, humanly speaking, that makes our work possible.
