When a person says "Obama is a Christian" it must be understood in the context of Liberation Theology.

Here are some of the important points about Liberation Theology:

1. Liberation Theology has it center of power in Latin America and in African Theology, but is found in many Christian denominations throughout the Third World.

2. Liberation Theology is a new interpretation of Christian reality.

3. Liberation Theology is radically Marxist.“...the world must be interpreted in terms of the class struggle and that the only choice is between capitalism and Marxism.”

4. Liberation Theology thrives on perpetuating class struggle. The only people of the Church are those who participate in class struggle.

5. Liberation Theology is a theology of bloody political revolution. All of Christian reality is reduced to politico-social liberation praxis (action).

6. Liberation Theology rejects traditional scriptural interpretations.“The experience of the "community" determines the understanding and the interpretation of Scripture... Ultimately, what is normative for interpretation is not historical research but the hermeneutic of history experienced in the community or the political group.”

7. Liberation Theology makes the Bible subject to a Marxist view of history.“The "historicality" of the Bible must justify its absolute dominance and thus legitimize the' transition to materialist-marxist philosophy, in which history has taken over the role of God... historical criticism has loosed Scripture from the traditional interpretation, which now appears to be unscientific.

8. Liberation Theology is a threat to the faith of the Christian Church.

Here we can analyzes some of the central concepts of Liberation Theology:
Faith: Jesus' experience of God is radically historical. "His faith is transformed into fidelity." Thus faith is fundamentally replaced by "fidelity to history"...

Hope is interpreted as "confidence in the.future" and as working for the future and thus is subordinated once more to the history of class conflict...

Love consists in the "option for the poor"; i.e., it coincides with opting for the class struggle...

Kingdom of God:“..the Kingdom must not be understood in a spiritualist or universalist manner, not in the sense of an abstract eschatological eventuality. It must be understood in partisan terms and with a view to praxis. The meaning of the Kingdom can only be defined by reference to the praxis of Jesus, not theoretically: it means working at the historical reality that surrounds us in order to transform it into the Kingdom.”

Overcoming Dualism “Here we must mention another basic idea of a particular post­conciliar theology which has led in this direction. People said that after the Council every dualism must be overcome: the dualism of body and soul, of natural and supernatural, of this world and the world beyond, of then and now. Once these supposed dualisms had been eliminated, it only remained to work for a kingdom to be realized in present history and in politico­economic reality. This meant, however, that one had ceased to work for the benefit of people in this present time and had begun to destroy the present in the interests of a supposed future: thus the real dualism had broken loose.”

Note: The above explanation of overcoming dualism certainly gives us some insight into the suicidal nature of leftist thought!

Death and Resurrection:“... Man has taken over God's gesture — this manifests the whole transformation of the biblical message in an almost tragic way ...”

Eucharist is interpreted as a celebration of liberation in the sense of politico-messianic hope and praxis.

The word redemption is largely replaced by liberation, which is seen, against the background of history and the class struggle, as a process of progressive liberation.

Action is truth “... The only true orthodoxy is therefore orthopraxy.”

I don't think I'm terribly unique and yes we are all tiny specks in a very large universe. What's your point? It's the cristians who think they are so special that they can walk on streets of gold for all eternity. When it comes to feeble minds, speak only for yourself.

Did your dad rape you and make you dumb or are you dumb because you are Japanese? I thought we killed you all off in WW11.

Exactly.

That is the problem when religions that take their spiritual books full of allegorical myths and legends and try to make them perfect science and history books.

In Christianity history, rather than accept the truth, they murdered and tortured anyone who disagreed with them. Today, the are denied that outlet in most o the world so they resort to virtual murder and torture with threats of Hell and torture by their deity Satan.

So it takes you about 10 minutes to change the settings on your proxy and use a different name?

What else can you do all by yourself in that basement?

I see it as a sign of mental weakness , a lack of ability to form a intuitive counter argument , and last but not least a sure sign of immaturity. Mimicry is the act of a desperate and depraved individual.

I have the $100 right here under my monitor.

All you have to do, is prove your god is real, and the $100 is yours.

But you are too much of a coward to even TRY.

Why?

Because-- YOU HAVE NO FAITH!

You admitted you have none, over on the snake threads---

-- you are just a cowardly believer-wannabe-- with no more faith than I have!

You dare not test your faith-- it's worthless.

I pity you, I really do.

But as soon as you can prove your god is real? That $100 is yours.

We cannot... not to YOU.

For you lack all the requisite properties of consciousness you see.

For starters?

You have no self-awareness.

But worst of all? You have no free will-- you are a mindless, per-programmed drone.

Sad.
