Its spirit is gradually spreading across the Western world, and creating intense discussion along with Vatican concern. This book explains that theology.Liberation Theology takes its structure from Marxism. It does so by rejecting the authority of the Bible and at the cost of ten basic Christian doctrines. This book details that relationship.But until the first decisive act of this theology is to liberate itself from exploitation by Marxism, its message will be hollow and its words will lack all power to attain the announced goal of lifting the poor and oppressed into some control of their own destiny. This book shows why that is so.Only a theology which is itself radically liberated by the Word of God is radical enough to proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof (Lev. 25:10)!There has long been such a radical theology, and in practice it has wrested liberty from the hands of tyrants to endow the Western world with a democracy and unparalleled progress. This book describes that liberating theology.History is woven with the warp of time and the woof of words. The critical choice facing mankind is a choice between following the words of a Marxist or other ideology or obedience to the Word of God. This book is aimed at clarifying that choice.
