"'Dominionism' and the Return to 'Slavery'" (Gary DeMar)

"Critics of “Dominionism” are claiming that adherents to this vaguely defined belief system want to reinstitute slavery. Can this be true? The slavery practiced in this country prior to 1860 was “man stealing,” better defined as “kidnapping.” Black West Africans were kidnapped, often by other Black West Africans, put on ships, brought to these shores, sold at auction, and placed in forced labor. In biblical terms, this was wrong. To maintain that this form of slavery would be reinstituted today in the name of “biblical law” is patently absurd."

(Disclaimer: Although American Vision itself doesn't promote the dangerous Federal Vision heresy, it does promote the works of some influential Federal Vision proponents, such as Douglas Wilson and James Jordan. Whether or not any of their particular works sold by American Vision promote Federal Vision theology, Wilson and Jordan are extremely dangerous, and American Vision should warn about them [see Romans 16:17-18].)
