The speaker, Pastor G. Craige Lewis, is the founder and creator of EX-Ministries — an organization dedicated to exposing false-doctrines and other deceptive attacks against Biblical Christianity.
The video you just watched was a special feature of his latest video-series known as “Trojan Horse 2 – Pride of Life” .
In this video, pastor Lewis has done an excellent job breaking down the ‘new-age’ deceptive teaching known as the “7 Mountain Strategy”.
The 7 Mountain Strategy is essentially a religious idea that teaches Christians 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…
According to several sources, the earliest occurrence of the 7 Mountain strategy was in 1975 by an American preacher known as Bill Bright.
Bill Bright is famously known for being the creator and founder of Campus Crusade — an interdenominational organization that promotes worldwide evangelism.
According to the legend, 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.
Whether the story about these men is true or not — I cannot say,
but one thing we can point out for sure is that this ideology is un-biblical not to mention 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”.
Clearly the early apostles did not know about this doctrine considering the fact that they spent the majority of their time…
Now I ask you, does this sound like the apostles were “Dominating” any sectors of society?
In fact, it sounds like they were doing the complete opposite.
So apparently the apostles did not dominate ANY of the 7 Mountains.
But if the 7 Mountains strategy is true and the only way to influence society is by getting at the top of each sector and influencing it from above — How then did only 12 apostles manage to turn this world upside-down?
Answer: By their radical obedience to GOD.
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.
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.
Although there is nothing wrong with having a nice job and a reputable title, as Christians we should not consumed with attaining it.
Our primary goal and objective should be for us to continue our transformation until we have been completely transformed to the image of Christ who is the author and finisher of our faith. (Romans 8:29 / Hebrews 12:2)
Although God may sometimes bless us to have high positions and notoriety in life — the day could very-well come where God may require us to give up all that we have, even as Job did. (Job 1:6-22)
Would you still love God if you had nothing?
When Jesus was preparing his disciples for the great commission, he told them to forsake themselves, pickup their crosses, and follow him. (Matthew 16:24)
Likewise Christians today must be willing to do the same.
