Inside Jeremiah Wright’s Theology

The basis for Jeremiah Wright’s theology

 

It would seem that Jeremiah Wright’s theology is based on core values and beliefs that the white, rich man’s God is different from the poor black man’s God.  This is the basis for black liberation theology, the theology preached by Jeremiah Wright.  If in doubt, go to the website of Trinity Church and checkout the things the church values.  These are the values of Jeremiah Wright, the leader of Trinity Church for the past 30 years.  These must also be the values and beliefs of the members of Trinity Church, and the Obama’s are members in good standing, for the past 20 years.  The liberation theology views the world, and it’s belief in God, on one’s place in the world.  Liberation theology is preached in many black churches as the daily struggle of the oppressed black man, looking to God for salvation, while the white man keeps a foot on the black man’s neck.

 

What liberation theology can not come to grips with is the real world.  On Sunday, ministers like Jeremiah Wright preach racism and hatred.  But then the members of those churches go to work Monday through Friday in a world that now offers fair and equal pay, good education, fair housing, a means to get ahead.  Then on Sunday, they get another dose of how down trodden is the black man. 

 

Most churches ask their members to live what is preached in the church.  If this is the case, is Jeremiah Wright asking the members of Trinity Church, Obama included, to go out and hate, to practice racism?

 

From the Gospel of Luke, Jeremiah Wright seems to have the basis for his theology:

 

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18-19).

 

James Cone was also an influence on Jeremiah Wright and this can be seen in many of Wright’s sermons, based on the following from Cone in 1968:

 

“Theologically, Malcolm X was not far wrong when he called the white man ‘the devil.’ The white structure of this American society, personified in every racist, must be at least part of what the New Testament meant by demonic forces…Ironically, the man who enslaves another enslaves himself…To be free to do what I will in relation to another is to be in bondage to the law of least resistance. This is the bondage of racism. Racism is that bondage in which whites are free to beat, rape, or kill blacks. About thirty years ago it was acceptable to lynch a black man by hanging him from a tree; but today whites destroy him by crowding him into a ghetto and letting filth and despair put the final touches on death.”

 

This last sentence from Cone is reflected in many of Wright’s sermons.

  2. Obama sells himself as a racial healer, kind of a political Sidney Portier. But his preacher and his real views appear closer to Al Sharpton. Those may be truthful views–though I think they are in fact ridiculous–but if they were well known, Obama’s crossover appeal would disappear. Whites may not be as united as they once were, but we know when people mean us harm and have no interest in voting for them. This is a rational and normal behavior by any group of human beings.

    The fact that lots of blacks hate America, hate white people, and only care about themselves and their tribe doesn’t make Wright’s message and Obama’s on-again/off-again endorsement of it any more palatable. Blacks are in a freefall of envy and hate and Marxist thinking, and it is corroding black America to the detriment of them and white people . . . just ask the poor white female victims of the umpteenth black rapist-robber-murderer at UNC and Auburn.

  3. I was appalled to learn that Jeremiah Wright bases his church’s views on “Liberation Theology” which developed in Latin America, particularly in Nicaragua in the 1970’s and 1980’s (refer to his interview on Fox News March 1, 2007). Liberation Theology was practiced by Catholic priests in Latin America and was one of the primary causes for the various guerrilla movements and civil wars that tore Central America apart in the 1980’s. This theology promotes among other things hatred amongst social classes, much like the hatred Mr. Wright seems to be promoting among races in the United States.

    If he has been Senator Obama’s pastor and “spiritual leader” for 20 years, it is beyond me not to make a connection that Senator Obama must share some of these views which, as Mr. Wright states are a basic foundation for his church.

    Latin voters should pay close attention to this. These hatred policies such as Liberation Theology have ripped apart Latin America for decades and are one of the main causes for the influx of Central America immigrants to the U.S., escaping the the lasting damage caused at home. This should not happen to the United States.

    Let’s stop Obama now! This is too serious a matter to ignore and take a risk on electing a person who is tainted with even the faintest traces of these views.
