TBC: We have noted in the past how C. Peter Wagner uses scripture in order to support his extrabiblical teachings. Consider the following example:]
"We need to take a new look at one of our most quoted Bible verses: 'The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost' (Luke:19:10). In the past, most of us thought that Jesus was saying 'to seek and to save those who were lost.' Consequently, we applied it to saving souls. But now we realize that we should have taken Jesus' statement at face value, namely 'that which was lost.'
"What is it then, that was lost and that Jesus came to seek and to save? The answer is in the first chapter of Genesis. God's original design was that Adam and Eve should have dominion over all of God's creation (see Genesis:1:28). But they disobeyed God, they lost their authority, Satan usurped it and he became the god of this age. Satan's kingdom encompassed all of the human kingdoms of the earth (see Luke:4:5-6).
"Why did Jesus come? He came with His kingdom, namely the kingdom of God, to invade the kingdom of Satan for the purpose of taking back dominion of God's creation which was lost in the Garden of Eden. The Holy Spirit is now speaking to the churches and saying that God's people must do what it takes to transform society, segment by segment, until God's kingdom is seen on earth as it is in heaven."
