During a recent “Truth and Liberty” webcast, Andrew Wommack and Lance Wallnau were joined by right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton for an episode aimed at mobilizing evangelicals to vote in the midterm elections, with Barton explaining that conservative Christians have been tasked by God with controlling every aspect of society.
“His stuff is entertainment, it is art, it is business, it is government,” Barton said. “God is the one who created government—not man, that is not man’s invention—it came from God and God says, ‘I need you to take care of my stuff.'”
“He put you here to take care of his stuff and that includes government,” Barton added. “That includes education, that includes business, that includes all this stuff. That is why we are here.”
Wommack agreed, asserting that Christians are to “have dominion” over everything on earth because “we are unique in that we are not only in relationship with God in dealing with eternal things, but we are supposed to be ruling in this world.”
Barton then cited 1 Corinthians 6 to assert that Christians are called to be “the judges of the world.”
“[Jesus said,] ‘If you are to judge the future, why aren’t you judging right now?'” Barton said. “1 Corinthians 6 says you are the judges of the world, everything in the world will be judged by you in the End Times, so get busy and start judging right now. Now, how can we read that as anything other than what it is? … He wants you involved in the civil process.”
