Somehow I think the article has the cart befire the horse. Like we need a justification for social action. We need -desperately- to surrender our flesh to the Spirit of God and be obedient to whatever Jesus wills us to do. I see here a creaping guilt thing which has to do with not being comfortable being a counta-cultural prophetic voice in society.

I truely believe we Ned to EMMERSE our lives in the Word of God. That’s nkthi g to do Sith being a scripture scholar like the pharasies…. it’s about living fellowship with Him who IS the living Word of God.

how is that for kingdom-now covenant theology? “Jesus never sought to change the world through public policy but rather through personal transformation.” http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/watchman-on-the-wall/50956-bishop-t-d-jakes-shocked-to-read-manipulation-of-his-gay-marriage-comments

    “Bolivia, a country ruled since 2006 by Evo Morales, a socialist whose policies resemble those of the late Hugo Chávez, dictator of Venezuela. In spite of Morales’ leftist policies and his open disdain for Christianity (he has at times invited native spiritualists to sacrifice llamas outside his government offices) the church of Jesus Christ continues to thrive in Bolivia.” http://www.charismamag.com/blogs/fire-in-my-bones/27268-why-i-m-not-worried-about-the-next-four-years

    Terry Wiles you know that I have a bone to pick with liberation theology and is a bit of my specialty nowadays

    To start with what Bob Wizenhut is presenting in this group as BLM is a fraud. He is a white male with leftist inclination as Nelson Banuchi has already establish

    TO misrepresent BLM as Pedagogy of the Oppressed is a mortal theological sin to begin with BUT beyond that

    YES, KGB hi-jacked the Catholic church work of Freire and had Gutierrez create a counterfeit to take over and wake up theologically several socialists revolutions in South America by touching a very sensitive Catholic religiousity within those latino peoples

    From this point on the liberation theology withing South America was so strong that virtually every theological movement that emerged there is liberation oriented.

    Hence in the 80-90s both Harvey Cox (Harvard) and Peter Wagner (Fuller) established model latin American evangelical revivalism within the scope of the historic Catholic liberation movement It is the new world religion and what many believe to be true evangelicalism. Hence K. Copeland and others are so fond of the pope, and leading kingdom-now representative Ulf Ekman turned Catholic

      Let me say there is very strong movements of salvation among central and South America. The preaching of the cross is happening and many are being saved. So much so where we were once stoned for preaching the Gospel the majority of the population has become Spirit filled.

      Please don’t misrepresent me or anything that I’ve posted. I’ve never had leftist leanings nor do I misrepresent the views of Black Lives Matter Cincinnati. In fact, it would be fair to say that I drive the views of Black Lives Matter Cincinnati, and their Biblical basis.

      Bob Wizenhut Just a suggestion, but you should provide more info on your FB page about yourself and, perhaps, a picture of yourself on your FB page, especially since you are white. Merely having MLK, Jr’s photo while you are white just might come across as deceptive, especially to those whom I assume you are trying tp help.

      I also noticed that there is website that formerly was “BLM Cincinnati” and changed their name to “Mass Action for Black Liberation.” Apparently, you are not affiliated with them. It seems you are a one person BLM Cincinnati and not really and organization. Is that correct?

      Nelson Banuchi – we don’t have paid staff but we have 7,000 members. Many of those members participate in constructive dialog. While we incorporate a Biblical perspective into what the moderators post we are open to posts from our diverse membership as long as it relates to systemic injustice instead of partisan promotion. It is true that the majority of our membership is white but that would be true of other BLM chapters as well.

      Bob Wizenhut Thanks for the clarification of BLM.

      Are you associated with the BLM Cincinnati that changed it’s name to “Mass Action for Black Liberation”?

      Would you consider updating you’re FB page as I suggested?

      Don’t know anything about an organization named Mass Action for Black Liberation. And I think MLK works perfect for my FB page as I apply his methods to our struggle today.

      Bob Wizenhut You should. They were formerly, BLM of Cincinnati: http://blacklivescincy.com/home/2018/03/28/why-black-lives-matter-cincinnati-is-changing-its-name/

      First of all, in actuality, it seems misleading for you to refer to it as “*my* struggle,” since you are not black. You may be assisting in the struggle but it it doesn’t seem to be properly or directly “your” struggle, not unless you face the same discriminations and abuses as a white man that the black man faces.

      Second, I’m not suggesting you remove the photo of MLK, Jr. I’m suggesting you *add* a photo of yourself to your FB page’s large banner (or switch and place MLK Jr.’s photo on the large banner and your photo on the smaller square banner.

      With that, I would suggest a little paragraph of introduction as to why you are assisting the community of color with *their* struggle for equal rights and protections.

      As I stated earlier, your FB page is very misleading as to the person who is claiming to sponsor BLM in Cincinnati.

      Btw, can you provide some sort of evidence of your formal association with BLM (perhaps, an ID card or letter of association). I ask because, (a) you admit not knowing and, therefore, not having any association with what was formerly BLM Cincinnati (what you claim to be involved in), and (b) it makes me wonder if your association with BLM is legit or merely just your putting up a FB page on your own thinking your helping the community of color (and, if so, commendable, perhaps, nevertheless, misleading to the point of deception).

      Can’t take claims for granted these days, especially on the Internet.

      Troy Day not again. I do not believe in secular liberal socialism
      I have asked you to quit saying that.
      USE THIS AS A REFERENCE POINT.
      I do not believe in forcefully taking from one group of people and giving to another to make them equal.
      That has never worked in society, because you have always had a select group of people who live better and have more than the others.
      But I do believe in Christian communal system. And i do believe the Bible teaches that.
      I do believe that Jesus Christ taught that.
      I do not believe Jesus taught that it was alright for Christians to become rich and not share it with others by their giving. They would do this voluntarily out of love for their neighbors Not forcefully have it taken from them.
      We know what Jesus said about where your treasure is
      The reason why I believe it you see Christianity in its purist form in the beginning of the Church in the first 7 chapters.
      In Acts 8 persecution hit the church and they had to leave Jerusalem.
      I believe in the short time that all the thousands of Saints in Jerusalem that were saved and baptized with the Holy Ghost were getting a supernatural infusion from the Apostles and the Holy Ghost of what Jesus Christ taught and preached while here on this earth, even though it wasn’t recorded the Holy Ghost was filling the first Saints with a monumental task of spreading the Gospel of the Kingdom.
      What in the Pentecostal denominations is closest to communal living?

    I agree with your post. I work extensively in central and South America and know the sewers of Liberation Theology and the NAR connections to it. Very damaging.

    I also work/associate/am exposed directly to African American BLT Church leadership. They are not directly connected to BLM and in most cases would repudiate their actions. Yet they are immersed in Liberation Theology and see salvation theology through that lens.

    It is that type of strong voice that gives “perception” of truth that the masses embrace while Pentecostals, at the same time, not only do not raise their voice against it but spend their time arguing over the preeminence of tongues and jump on every new “wind” of doctrine as the “new thing” to ride in order to get a spiritual thrill including worshiping worship.

    All this arguing is taking place when much of the world, even locally has never been confronted with the liberty that comes from following Christ to a Cross and finding death to sin there.

    Go figure!

    Terry Wiles the entrance of social gospel and liberation theology growth is the END of Pentecostalism Dan Irving

    AG published 4 foundational and critical papers:

    2000 EndTime revival … resolution 16

    2001 apostles and prophets

    2003 – discipleship and submission

    2004 statement of fundamental truths – the last of the reclaiming documents to re establish authority and fix the NAR/Bentley issue

    From 2005 onward the crises deepened and in the next decade created the perfect storm first reckoned with the current membership decline and if not fixed on time repeat the cycle by 2020-22

      more specifically

      3. The practice of imparting or imposing personal leadings by means of gifts of utterance. Instances of Spirit-prompted personal advice, contrary to common sense yet definitely of divine origin, are so infrequent that recklessly giving personal prophecies soon becomes an abuse in the body of Christ. Though Paul and Barnabas were rightfully set apart by the Holy Spirit for an unspecified work (Acts 13:2), the two still had to hear the Spirit’s direction for their specific assignments. Their call was heard by the gathered believers while worshiping and fasting, and all present, including Paul and Barnabas, were obviously persuaded that it was indeed the Spirit speaking. If the “prophesied” words are from God, the Holy Spirit will also confirm the reality to the heart of the one set apart for the Spirit’s work.

      and the whole #4

      By that I mean the kind founded by Acts 1:8 and primarily reflected Acts 2:42 & 47.

    Terry Wiles Kingdom Now or Dominion theology. The thought that God’s kingdom can come on earth with a little help from humankind is intriguing to those who advocate this approach to impacting society. Rather than scoffing at the promise of Christ’s imminent return (2 Peter 3:3,4), this errant theology says that Jesus will not return until the Church takes dominion of the earth back from Satan and his followers. By taking control, through whatever means possible, of political, ecclesiastical, educational, economic, and other structures, Christians supposedly can make the world a worthy place for Christ to return and rule over.6 This unscriptural triumphalism generates other related variant teachings. http://enrichmentjournal.ag.org/200102/088_endtime_revival.cfm

    Terry Wiles I see that Bob Wizenhut Scotty Searan are still stuck in socialism utopia and you went deep state 9 with Ricky Grimsley so I am proceeding with the actual theological OP at hand:

    The 1949 General Council of the Assemblies of God, in Seattle, Washington, adopted a resolution disapproving the doctrines of the New Order of the Latter Rain.

    4. Don’t allow those who have visited other scenes of God’s seemingly spectacular move to persuade you or your people to merely copy the activity observed elsewhere. Seek God for His special move according to the needs of your church. A carbon-copy “revival” is likely to be man-made.

    6. Do not invite speakers to fill your pulpit out of a desire just to see

    “manifestations.”

    This false teaching is treated in detail in “The Kingdom of God as Described in Holy Scripture,” position paper of the Assemblies of God (Springfield, Missouri: Gospel Publishing House, 1990).

    Ultimately Resolution 16 ended the apostolic movement in AG Peter Vandever has prior proposed that the Vineyard movement with their former Vineyard 5 pastor-prophets or the great Kansas-4 are the natural continuation of the prophetic AG movement but I dont believe that for one little bit – its all pure kingdom-now political theology now

    Terry Wiles Scotty Searan (1) The notion, expressed in the writings of Gustavo Guttierrez and Juan Luis Segundo, that private ownership of the means of production should be eliminated, and workers, peasants, and farmers left to the mercies of total nationalization and deprived of the right to own their own enterprises or work their own land, even as part of a cooperative. (A cooperative, though a form of socialized property, is nonetheless private property.)

    But, you interject, “Whoa there, this isn’t socialism!” You’re wrong. This is precisely how socialism started in the early nineteenth century, before Marx got his collectivist teeth into it. This is what the Christian socialists such as John Ludlow, Philippe Buchez, and Archbishop Ketteler meant by socialism, what even secular socialists like Robert Owen, Louis Blanc, and Ferdinand Lassalle meant by socialism. And this is precisely how post-Marxian socialism is evolving in the modern era.

    Proof: The Socialist International, a federation of non-communist socialist parties, has since 1951 operated under a charter known as the Frankfurt Declaration, which not only defends the legitimacy of “private ownership in… agriculture, handicraft, retail trade, and small and middle-sized industries” but also proposes the wide use of consumer and producer cooperatives. The Declaration also calls for the maximum decentralization of economic power consistent with “the aims of planning,” and the maximum participation of workers in “the direction of their industry.” And although they do not use the term “socialism” and would put a lesser emphasis on public ownership, this is how the U.S. Catholic Bishops tend to describe a Christian economy in their recent pastoral.

    (2) A second false Marxist notion, embraced by liberation theologians such as Gustavo Gutierrez and Enrique Dussel, is the idea that the employer-employee (wage) relationship is of its nature and of necessity evil, enslaving, and alienating. Since power tends to corrupt, the cooperative relationship is better than the employer-employee relationship, but even cooperative workers must be paid wages and work under bosses. Public employers, as in the Marxist vision, can be even more oppressive than private. Nevertheless, some public ownership is necessary, as popes and bishops have acknowledged.

    (3) Liberation theologians, apparently incapable of distinguishing between the policies of Ronald Reagan and democratic government, and impatient with the failures of democratic reform in Latin America, have been ambiguous about the Marxist nonsense enshrined in the phrase “dictatorship of the proletariat.” The Socialist International, however, is not ambiguous on this score. The Declaration again: “Without freedom there can be no Socialism. Socialism can be achieved only through democracy.” And to make sure you understand that democracy cannot be reconciled with any kind of dictatorship, as in “democratic centralism,” it adds, “Every dictatorship… is a danger to the freedom of all nations and thereby to the peace of the world.”
