Religous freedom according to a dominionist

#1  Postby wakawakawaka » Nov 11, 2013 3:50 am

check this paper written by a dominionist about how he is going to respect freedom of religon .....oh so according to the bible its okay to kill a non-christian when they practice their religion in public.... but not when they worship in private

"The Persecution of Unbelievers Argument
A common objection is that the full adoption of a biblical law order will lead to the
persecution of unbelievers. This objection is used to bring to mind a type of Christian
dictatorship where atheists, Buddhists, Hindus,
and Moslems are rounded up in the middle of the
night and shot by a “Christian” gestapo or KGB. This image is totally false for a number of reasons. First, keep in mind that a Christian civil government does not come into being through a revolution or phys
ical violence. A nation will not become Christian until the majority of the
people are converted to Christ. This may be centuries in the future. Becoming a Christian nation is a bottom up not a top down affair. Rushdoony writes, “The key is regeneration, propagation of the gospel, and the conversion of men and nations to God’s law. Meanwhile, the existing laworder must be respected, and neighboring law-orders must be respected as far as is possible without offense to one’s own faith.”Second, in a Christian state (as noted earlier),it is not illegal to be an unbeliever. One can be an atheist, animist, Hindu or anything one pleases.Personal belief and private practice are not civil crimes. It is the propagation and public practice of heathenism that is a civil crime according to biblical law (cf. Dt. 13:1-18, 17:2-1)"

They already had the best part of two millennia to demonstrate how well a theocratic state would behave. It was changed for very good reasons.
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose,
And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free.

So no doubt these dominionists would accept the removal of Christianity from public life, in all states where there is not a Christian majority. They can believe whatever they like, but any public display of piety will get punished, and they'd be fine with that. Yeah, right.

This is clearly false, judging from history. There were nations that became christian because the king or emperor became christian, and there were christian nations where it was in fact illegal for citizens to be anything other than christian.

My emphasis.
Even to the point of belonging to a different Christian sect. Protestants and Katlicks, anyone?

They won't be rounded up in the middle of the night, but only during working hours. That's the Christian thing to do.
