Dominion Theology, Christian Reconstructionism, Theonomy

They are Augustinian, Lutheranistic, Calvinist, Postmilleinialist (or Amillenialist)
They reject Antimonialism.

Related to racism, KKK, Calvinism, British Israelism, Reformation,
Nazism, Augustinianism, Puritanism, and Mormonism.

They believe that the New Testament teaches us that unless exceptions are revealed elsewhere every Old Testament commandment is binding, even as the standard of justice for all magistrates, including every recompense stipulated for civil offenses in the law of Moses.

Their goal is the developed Kingdom of God, the New Jerusalem, a world order under God's law. They believe fulfillment of God's covenant is their great commission: to subdue all things and all nations to Christ and His law-word. Note the word "subdue" not evangelize.

This doctrine is Antichrist.

British Israelism
It is also referred to as Anglo-Israelism. Basically it is the unscriptural theory. It is also referred to as Anglo-Israelism. Basically it is the unscriptural theory that Britain and the United States constitute the ten lost tribes of Israel who were carried away as captives by the Assyrians in 722 B.C. The advocates of this view teach that the Kingdom of Israel (consisting of ten tribes after their separation from the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin in the days of Rehoboam - I Kings 12:21) never returned to Israel after Assyrian captivity as did Judah and Benjamin after their 70 years' captivity in Babylon.
"The ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom (Israel) are "lost" after their capture by the Assyrians in 722 B.C. Through intermarriage with other nations, their unique national identity is "lost". Great Britain and the USA [including the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints] are believed to be the Anglo-Saxon ancestors of the tribes Ephraim and Manasseh (predominantly), so it may be inferred by British- Israelism that white, English speaking people are really the chosen people of God.

It is also believed that the Jews who were living in Israel at the time of Christ are now under a curse for rejecting the Messiah. The Israelites (the lost 10 tribes) now become the inheritors of God's promises. Ephraim and Manasseh (the two sons of Joseph) are the major inheritors of the title "Israelites" along with the other eight tribes whose descendants are spread in other parts of the world. Because of this dispersal, it is believed that the Queen of England now sits on the throne of David.

This theory was first put forward around the year 1519.. As with all cults, once an unscriptural perspective has been taken, the next step is to find a scripture which will support that doctrine. The key verses for British Israelism is 2 Kings 17:18-23.

Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only. 
2Kings 17:18

Note that Judah is the only tribe in existence today.

I included British Israelism here because it and  this page subject tend to be racist and anti-women which are both trends that I oppose.
