Right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton appeared on Andrew Wommack’s “The Gospel Truth” program this week to discuss the “School of Practical Government” that he has established at Wommak’s Charis Bible College in Colorado for the purpose of training conservative Christian activists to take control of government in order to implement biblical public policies.
After Wommack said that he was excited that this school will be training Christians to “go out and take over this mountain of government,” Mark Cowart, a local Colorado pastor who is serving as director of the school, made clear that it was going to be heavily rooted in Seven Mountains domionionism, which is the idea that conservative Christians are called by God to take control of the seven key areas of culture: business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, family and religion.
“I have never been more excited and more encouraged that the Lord has birthed this Practical Government school,” Cowart said, “and I believe here at Charis, God’s gonna raise up an army to take that mountain of government back.”
Wommack said that the school was lucky to have someone like Barton on board, because he is willing to “take the hits” for standing for God, to which Barton replied that he has no choice because God is keeping score.
After absurdly claiming that the ACLU once spent a million dollars trying to discredit him, Barton said that George Soros is now spending all sorts of money to pay people to do nothing but attack him.
“Fine, whatever,” Barton said. “I’m convinced God keeps score, not only with what happens but with what I do, and if I go silent because of what they did, He keeps score on me with that and I’ll be in trouble so I have no option.”
