by Moody Adams Black liberation theology originated on July 31, 1966, when 51 black pastors bought a full page ad in the New York Times and demanded a more aggressive approach to eradicating racism. They echoed the demands of the black power movement, but the new crusade found its source of inspiration in the Bible.
"Jesus says my mission is to eradicate poverty and to bring about freedom and liberation for the oppressed," says Hopkins who attends Obama’s church. "And most Christian pastors in America skip over that part of the book."
The truth is Jesus came to save mankind from the sins, not their poverty. He said poverty would not be eradicated, “For ye have the poor always with you” (Matthew 26:11). He came to make us rich in spiritual things not material. Material riches are for us in the next world.
The Bible clearly foretold such false teachings, “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:1-8).
This is just another form of the prosperity Gospel which appeals to those with no interest in salvation from sin and riches in the next world.
