In Dropping Premillennialism is the Evangelical Free Church of America Being Influenced by Dominionism?

A tweet by the Slacktivist raises an important question about the EFCA denomination. As this blog writes about the EFCA I wanted to capture and add it to the blog. In dropping premillennialism is the EFCA being influenced by dominionism? 

“Come what may, time and hour runs through the roughest day.”

William Shakespeare     

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

James 3:13 NIV

The Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) dropped Premillennialism recently. You can read about this in Christianity Today here. This was first proposed at the national conference in Austin, Texas in 2017. You can read about it in, “Proposed Changes at EFCA One in Austin, Texas: Changing the Statement of Faith on Premillennialism, and is Academic Freedom Being Threatened at Trinity International University?” Fred Clark who writes as the Slacktivist raises one perspective on Twitter that I had not considered. In taking this action is the EFCA being influenced by dominionism theology?

  1. This is an interesting deduction very closely connected to Calvinism also. Many Calvinists are amillenialists which incorporates the dominionism theology into their belief system. I think the primary reason the EFCA dropped the premillennial requirement was that it allows more Calvinistic thinkers into the Free Church. The EFCA has become primarily Calvinistic.
