The 7 mountain theology goes against God’s plan for the family and it’s powerful influence on society. Instead of building strong homes and building character in our children by example, preachers are seeking validation from the world systems. By striving for world dominance and wordily achievements, we can ignore the issues in our homes. But the issues in our homes are the catalyst for the sin of the people. This is where dysfunction is birthed and nurtured. Our focus should be the home and not wordily achievements. 1Tim. 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) The 7 mountain theology has not been successful. It’s preached and propagated by people that HAVE NO PROOF of it’s effectiveness and thusly, cannot prove it to be an effective doctrine. Most of those that preach this theology have left the very avenues of influence they speak of to teach others how to be effective in being influential in those same avenues they abandoned.
The bible doesn’t teach this theology. It never teaches us to go after the culture, or worldly achievements to claim them for Christ.God stripped all of his apostles of their worldly positions and they were all demoted in the eyes of the world, but promoted in the eyes of Christ. 1John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Those that teach this doctrine claim that evangelism is flawed. Well, the only flaw in evangelism today is the fact that the Gospel the way it was written is not being preached! The 7 mountain idea is proof of this! Men are seeking platforms and riches. They are seeking man made revival instead of basic foundational living and principles. They are wanted and desiring to be lifted up on these said mountains so they can get glory just as the world does. This is why the church and evangelism seems ineffective. It’s the people that are lifted up that are harming the cause.
To push your children to seek arts, entertainment, media, etc. is not a good idea. To push your children to promote themselves and seek the applause of men is to put them in the position of compromise and seeking the pride of life. We should never encourage our children to seek after vain glory. Gal. 5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. The Kingdom of God is not tangible! It’s the actions of Christ against the world. Rom. 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Trojan Horse 2 Pride of Life
The church of the living God is under attack. A deadly Trojan virus has breached our fortified walls. We’ve been infected. This virus is known as ‘the pride of life’. As it spreads, infected individuals succumb to the ‘lust of the flesh’ and ‘the lust of the eyes’. The symptoms of .. infection are idolatry, covetousness and selfish ambition. But beware these symptoms are masked as virtue, honesty and moral conviction in compromised believers. Outwardly, infected individuals express a desire to glorify God but inwardly they seek self-glorification and the praise of others. The ‘pride of life’ virus requires a human host that is a professed Christian and has deep rooted personal deficits. This virus has tragically been implanted into the hearts of believers, families, ministries and churches through the primary carrier, Gospel celebrities. Satan has unleashed this calamity among us by deceptively using the material world and men of the world to advance his kingdom. The only way for the church to be restored unto God is to unplug from the world’s system. Join Tetaun Moffett of EX Ministries on an unparalleled journey to explore the plight of the modern church. Be challenged to overcome personal deficits, reject the ‘pride of life’ and experience an uncompromised relationship with God. ORDER HERE
