The Dangers of “Liberation Theology”

Exhibit A:
“Rev” Wright and Barack Obama explain Black Liberation Theology

Exhibits B & C:
“Liberation Theology and … the Peoples Temple”

Remembering Jonestown

UPDATE:

Many who studied the subject believe Liberation Theology began in 1961 when in an unprecedented act, the World Council of Churches (WCC) invited the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) to join the organization. Unknown to the WCC, the ROC was a KGB appendage, staffed by intelligence officers. I know this well because of my experience in Israel and Jerusalem.

The Soviets took advantage of the invitational opportunity and sent Metropolitan Nikodim (then of Leningrad), the ROC’s second ranking prelate, to the WCC assembly. He espoused a doctrine known as Liberation Theology which was eagerly accepted by Latin American priests and bishops. Its revolutionary philosophy soon became a vehicle for violent change in Latin America as well as Africa and Southeast Asia.

They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

UPDATE: Obama’s FCC, liberal churches, and the “media justice” mob

    Is that one of the dangers? Or would you call that more of a symptom?

  2. YouShouldTakeAChillPill says:

    Nice link Jax!

    The Boston Globe named it the 17th Scariest Movie of All-Time

  3. Jax,

    With the exception of the life-size posterboard of President Bush, what is shown in that video is based on Bible passages.

    Spiritual Warfare

    Intercessory prayer for those in authority over us

    Tongues

    Now, you’ll notice that this adult was not treating President Bush as God and teaching children to sing songs of praise to him. These children are not treating President Bush as a Messiah.

    Unlike what we’ve seen with adults teaching the Obama Youth to sing songs of praise to their “Messiah“/”Dear Leader”/”Fascist Dictator“.

    By the way, “Black Liberation Theology” is racist.

    The “Liberation Theology” I believe applies to all people, regardless of skin color.

  4. Jax says:

    So, tell me this. Barack Obama gets sworn in as the next president, and the same people bring another cardboard cutout out and tell the kids to pray over it. Everything happens the exact same way, except it’s Barack Obama rather that George W. Bush. You’re totally cool with that, right?

  5. Jax,

    1) At my church, when we prayed about the election, we prayed for both Barack Obama and John McCain.

    2) Barack Obama (also known as Indonesian citizen Barry Soetoro) has a few lawsuits challenging his Constitutional eligibility. He hasn’t even been elected yet. The election for President happens when the Electoral College Electors meet and vote for a (Constitutionally eligible) candidate for President.

  6. Jax says:

    Anyone can file a lawsuit for any reason. Simply filing a lawsuit doesn’t mean anything about the veracity of the argument, it just means someone can do paperwork.

    But you didn’t answer my question, Red. And since you tagged me once for straying from the point of the thread, I’m going to ask you again. I’m not talking about YOUR church, and the very benevolent prayers you no doubt offered for Barack Obama.

    I’m talking about this exact situation; in the hypothetical, mind you, so you don’t go off on a tangent about how Obama hasn’t been elected yet. Let’s say, by some wild sequence of events, the Electoral College Electors meet and actually cast their ballots for Obama. OK? Use your imagination here. Barack Obama is elected President of the United States.

    A few years into his presidency, you see a video of a children’s summer camp where, to patriotic music, a life-size cardboard cutout of Barack Obama is placed onstage. An elderly woman tells the children to speak a blessing to him, and begins waving her hands over the CARDBOARD CUTOUT, speaking in tongues.

    The children close their eyes and stretch out their hands toward the, and I’m sorry to belabor this point, CARDBOARD CUTOUT OF AN ELECTED OFFICIAL, moaning prayers and stretching their hands out to stroke Obama’s cardboard garments. And because this is all “based on bible passages,” this is all OK with you, is that what you’re saying? You wouldn’t say a peep.

    You’re going to hedge here, Red, and you’re going to try to dodge and say that song video is the same thing. In answer to the question you’ve got brewing there, Red, no. I don’t think Obama supporters hiring a childrens’ choir to sing a campaign song is on the same level, in no small part because campaign songs, especially original ones, are a campaign tactic going back to the founding of the republic. Want to see some video of a fresh-faced bunch of twelve-year-olds singing “Go With Goldwater”? How about the Boy Scouts singing a chorus of “I Like Ike” by Irving Berlin? I’ve got them, Red. I watch a lot of History Channel.

    You would think it was perfectly OK for that exact same situation to occur, church, kids, cardboard cutout… if it were Barack Obama rather than George W. Bush. Yes or no?

  7. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

    All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

    2 Timothy 3:12-17

    Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    1 Timothy 2:1-4


    Watch this video of the prayer opening the Senate session on June 21, 2007 when those exact words from the second Bible quote above were recited by Guest Chaplain Rev. Linda Arey in the U.S. Senate, when Barack Obama was acting in place of Senator Byrd.

    …and she prays “In the name of Jesus” twice.

    You say:

    You would think it was perfectly OK for that exact same situation to occur, church, kids, cardboard cutout… if it were Barack Obama rather than George W. Bush. Yes or no?

    I already said:

    With the exception of the life-size posterboard of President Bush, what is shown in that video is based on Bible passages.

    I support the application of Bible passages to all men.

    Yes, I think it is perfectly OK for kids in church to be taught to pray for our President, regardless of who is our President.

    “if it were Barack Obama rather than George W. Bush. Yes or no?”

    Yes.

    itooktheredpill — have you actually been diagnosed as mentally retarded? If you haven’t, you may want to go visit a doctor soon and make it official.

  9. Tom,

    Thank you for your comment!

    Ad hominem attacks are what a leftist uses when they can’t argue the point! When you can’t attack the argument, attack the man.

    It’s good to know that’s the best you have to offer.

    :-)
