(Rick Wells) Pastor G. Craig Lewis of EX-Ministries, which describes itself as an organization designed to expose false doctrines and other deceptive attacks against biblical Christianity, takes on the Cruz cult. It’s the same one that Rafael Cruz, Ted’s Pastor Dad preachers and is a celebrity in, The Seven Mountain Strategy.
Pastor Lewis lays out an excellent encapsulation of just who these people are, highlighting their belief that “the only way they can impact society for GOD is by penetrating the 7 cultural spheres (or mountains) of society.”
The 7 Mountains are Arts & Entertainment, Business, Education, Family, Government, Media and Religion.
He cites the earliest known appearance of the cult occurred in 1975 with an American preacher named Bill Bright, who created Campus Crusade. That organization is billed as an interdenominational advocacy for worldwide evangelism.
Lewis details that, as the legend goes, “Bill Bright and Loren Cunningham (another prominent Christian) were sitting down having lunch together when God simultaneously gave them both a message to give to one another — and that message essentially said that in order to impact any nation for Jesus Christ — they must impact the seven spheres (or mountains) of any society. It was this that lead to the creation of the “7 Mountain Strategy” ideology that we commonly see spreading in the Christian arena today.”
Lewis describes The 7 Mountains Strategy as the New World Order repackaged for Christian for Christian consumption, describing the ideology as both un-biblical and very deceptive.
This ideology teaches Christians that in order to influence any civilization for Christ, they must first infiltrate the different sectors of humanity and “take them over”.
Lewis notes that “Clearly the early apostles did not know about this doctrine considering the fact that they spent the majority of their time – Being Poor, Being Beaten, Being thrown in Jail, and Being Stoned.” He asks, “Does this sound like the apostles were “Dominating” any sectors of society?”
He goes on to point out the many ways that this heresy is not Christianity and in doing so, the reasons why Cruz supporters should be very concerned that they have a demon in their midst that they are holding up as a holy man.
Lewis makes the point of the Apostles not themselves meeting muster for the 7 Mountains Cult, saying, “In fact, it sounds like they were doing the complete opposite.
- They did not dominate Arts & Entertainment because no one wanted to hear what they had to say.
- They did not dominate Business because they were poor
- They did not dominate Education because they were considered Fools.
- They did not dominate Family because they LEFT their families to preach the Gospel
- They did not dominate Government because they were often in Jail.
- They did not dominate Media because they were virtually kicked out of any city they went into.
- They did not dominate Religion because they were stoned and Crucified for believing the Gospel of Christ.
- So apparently the apostles did not dominate ANY of the 7 Mountains.
In the Bible, the Gospel of Christ started with nothing more than 12 men who were radically obedient and willing to allow God to use them in their lives.
It was through their obedience that God used them to spread the gospel to every corner of the earth and to perform many signs and wonders in the name of his son Jesus Christ.
The 7 Mountains Strategy is just another attempt to get Christians to succumb to the desires of becoming “somebody” in this world and its evil systems.
Furthermore, the concept of it is nothing more than an infinite maze that will entrap any Christian who attempts to run it.
It is the equivalent of placing a mouse in a maze that has no exit. But as if that was not bad enough, even if the mouse does make it to the cheese, the entire maze has been laced with mouse-traps.
The 7 Mountains Strategy teaches Christians that they must get to the top of the system in order to influence the world for Jesus Christ — but here is the Kicker, guess WHO is in charge of this World’s systems?
(2 Corinthians 4:3) But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
(2 Corinthians 4:4) In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Here the apostle Paul clearly tells us that Satan is in charge of this world’s systems. Therefore do you really think he would allow a Christian to actually get to the TOP? (Not if they are still a Christian)
But what Satan is deceitfully doing is trying to convince Christians to TRY to get to the top of his system, because 10 times out of 10 — either they will never get there, or he will own them before they get there.
It’s a safe bet that many if not most who support Ted Cruz are not aware of the Cult that goes with that support, the kind of demon that they would be putting in charge of our nation, one that falsely professes to be a Christian but unlike anything most of us would associate with legitimate Christianity.
It’s time for Cruz supporters to open their eyes and see what it is that has control over their judgment. They’re voting and advocating for a cultish figure, one not very different from Jim Jones and Jonestown.
