Kingdom of God Economics

In his article “Kingdom of God Economics” (https://news.gab.com/), Andrew Torba, CEO of Gab social network, promotes the concept of “having a Christ-First Kingdom-Oriented Mindset. When Christ is the cornerstone of every aspect of your life making the shift away from the City of Man becomes rather straightforward.” It is a personal call for Christians to unite and help one another in Christian love, networking together in community, making “a strong and dedicated effort to keep the majority of our time, money, and data with our brothers and sisters in Christ and start building for the Kingdom.” It is a practical call to reorientate our focus on Christ’s kingdom on earth in the practical affairs of life and how we make our living in order to glorify God. It promotes the idea of building a parallel economy in the culture that is dominated by Christian principles and centers on believer-owned businesses to enable believers to make their transactions within the sphere and to the benefit of God’s kingdom without contributing to the kingdom of Satan.

However, the Christocentric message of the Bible is that God is building His kingdom through the Gospel (Matt 28:19, 20) and therefore, “the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but in righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” Roms 14:18, 19.

Raised a Catholic but became born again in young adulthood principally through reading Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell (I highly recommend it). I prefer the Reformed faith and subscribe to the Five Solas, but hold to baptism by immersion. I also hold to a continuationist view of the doctrine of Spiritual gifts. To me, the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, with a Christocentric theme in its entirety. I hold to an orthodox preterist hermeneutic and prefer the Postmillenial eschatology as the most biblical doctrine of God’s plan for His kingdom in Christ.
