Back in Episode 3 we talked about five different streams of Christian Nationalism. In this episode we dive deeper into one of those streams called the Seven Mountains Mandate.
The Seven Mountains Mandate is the belief that America is unique in human history, chosen by God to achieve God’s work in the world, second only to the nation of Israel. The Seven Mountains refers to the seven areas of society in which God has chosen and anointed leaders from Business to Education to Politics. Many from this movement believed Donald Trump was God’s chosen and anointed leader and encouraged him to run for president. And they continued to champion him even after the Access Hollywood tapes came out, even after hush money paid to pornstars, even after kids in cages. Because, as you’ll hear in this episode, being God’s anointed doesn’t mean you’re a choir boy, it means you’re chosen for such a time as this.
