Liberation Theology

There is a good article from Dr. George Garner on so-called “Liberation Theology” — an unholy mingling of Christianity and Marxism — on page five of September’s Baptist Anchor. This movement is of particular importance to Latin America, but as Dr. Garner points out, it is also espoused by American clergy like President Obama’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright.

Liberation Theology places heavy emphasis on “social justice” and correcting the disparity in the distribution of resources among the classes through political action (e.g.; forced redistribution of wealth). In short, it’s basically socialism wrapped in religious clothing — a concept in opposition to biblical Christianity.
