Prominent Evangelical Albert Mohler Jr. Signs 'Manhattan Declaration' Calling For Civil Disobedience

Follow up on: Manifesto Madness: Laodicean Christendom And Catholics Uniting, Pushing NWO Strategy For 'Civil Unrest' 11-22-09 "A formidable coalition of 150 Catholic, Orthodox and evangelical leaders are calling on Christians in a new manifesto to reject secular authority – and even engage in civil disobedience – if laws force them to accept abortion, same-sex marriage and other ideas that betray their religious beliefs."

Why I Signed The Manhattan Declaration by R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
(minimal excerpts, see full text at link above)
The signatories to The Manhattan Declaration include evangelical leaders, as well as leaders from the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox churches.
I signed The Manhattan Declaration because I believe it is an historic statement of conviction and courage that is both timely and urgent.
I signed The Manhattan Declaration because I lead a theological seminary and college, serve as a teaching pastor in a church, and am engaged in Christian leadership in the public square.
I signed The Manhattan Declaration because it is a limited statement of Christian conviction on these three crucial issues, and not a wide-ranging theological document that subverts confessional integrity... We remain who we are, and we concede no doctrinal ground.
Finally, I signed The Manhattan Declaration because I want to put my name on its final pledge -- that we will not bend the knee to Caesar.
A few brief comments:
Despite Mohler's disclaimers to the contrary, e.g. "conceding no doctrinal ground" (see full article), a signed statement of unity is just that.
The root of the problem in the reasoning used to defend the signing of this 'non-unity' unity document is the mistaken Dominionist-Christian notion of 'fixing' and/or 'saving' and/or 'changing' this present world. This present world is still under the dominion of Satan (2 Cor. 4:4), and will not be either fixed, saved, or changed, until, and only when, the Lord Jesus Christ returns and overthrows the
'...principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places' (Eph. 6:12).
These evil entities are the real governors of this present world system, and they of course are not to be reformed. It is utterly foolish to think otherwise, and every attempt at the 'reforming of this world' will prove to be completely futile.
The fixing, saving, changing of the world will be accomplished with no help from man, but by he alone who is "called Faithful and True" [Rev. 19:11], the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ upon his return: "And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations" [and after this is done] "he shall rule them with a rod of iron..." (Rev. 19:15). Then, and only then.
Any other 'endtime' scenario will prove to be bitter deception. The false doctrine of Dominionist Theology has opened wide that door to bitter deception for a vast number of professing Christians. They are being led, by their 'leaders', into the New-World-Order.
"If you would not look back in declining times, be sure of this, that you do not run a share or a part in the vessel that God is about to destroy. Where my grief is, there is my finger; where my love is, there is my eye. If I have a share and a part in the vessel that God is about to destroy, I shall look after the vessel, what becomes thereof. Why now, Babylon, that art to be destroyed, Babylon is not to repent; Babylon that art to be destroyed, Babylon is not to be reformed. Wash dirt an hundred times, and you cannot make clean the dirt; Babylon is not to be reformed, but to be destroyed. Take heed therefore of running a part or a share in the boat or vessel that God hath laid out for destruction; for if you have a part and a share there, you will look back."
