“Would it be worth having a civil war to turn this nation back to God? I believe it would.”

These are the words of renowned televangelist Andrew Wommack on a recent episode of “Truth and Liberty,” a Christian TV program whose stated goal is “to educate, unify and mobilize believers in Jesus Christ to affect the reformation of nations through the seven mountains of cultural influence.”

Now, in case you’re wondering what the heck the seven mountains of cultural influence are, let me fill you in. The Seven Mountain Mandate is part of what is commonly referred to as Dominionism. The goal of Dominionism is to create a country — and eventually an entire world — where Christians are in charge, and the laws are based on what they believe the Bible says.

The movement believes that there are seven areas — or seven mountains — that influence society, which they aim to influence themselves: family, religion, education, media, entertainment, business, and government.

For his part, Wommack deals in media and entertainment, if one indeed could call it that. During his program, a viewer dialed in with a question: “Could the United States experience adopt the Bible as its Constitution?”

This gives you a fair idea of the kind of audience the Wommack is reaching. Wommack’s response to the question was clear: he doesn’t see a need for a new Constitution. In his view, the existing one is a divine creation comparable in importance to the Bible itself.

He elaborated, stating, “I don’t believe we need to come up with a new Constitution. The one we have is fine. The problem is people aren’t following it. Our Constitution — if you were to put it into biblical terms — if they were still writing the Bible today, I believe that the American Constitution and the founding of this nation would be in Scripture as one of the great things that God has done.”

If you’re like me, then hopefully, you’re seeing a giant red flag.

Andrew Wommack is a dominionist.

That is not the same thing as a Christian, by the way.
