I heard about the Christian Exodus project on Fox this morning, and the whole idea strikes me as profoundly misguided and antithetical to the Great Commission given by Jesus Christ to the church.

ChristianExodus.org is moving thousands of Christians to South Carolina to reestablish constitutionally limited government founded upon Christian principles. This includes the return to South Carolina of all "powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States." 1 It is evident that the U.S. Constitution has been abandoned under our current federal system, and the efforts of Christian activism to restore our Godly republic have proven futile over the past three decades. The time has come for Christian Constitutionalists to protect our American principles in a State like South Carolina by interposing the State's sovereign authority retained under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Contra the Great Commission:

Matthew 28:18-20

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

You'll notice that Jesus didn't say anything about devoting time or energy to reforming human government, but he did instruct these early Christians to spread out across the whole world for the purpose of evangelism. The Christian Exodus people are doing the exact opposite of what Jesus commanded.
