The Theology Of The Left

February 25, 2012 7:32 am 0 comments

“It’s not about you. It’s not about your quality of life. It’s not about your jobs. It’s about some phony ideal, some phony theology.  Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology.”

Amen Senator.  Rick Santorum delivered some shock and awe while addressing the Tea Party last Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.  The Obama administration reacted with condescending disapproval that Senator Santorum would suggest that the President’s agenda could be motivated by an un-biblical theology.  Obama is a Christian, of course, they said.  Regardless of the personal religious identification of Mr. Barack Obama, the ideology that he and other Progressives cling to is founded on the assumptions of the Theology of the Left.

The Theology of the Left is secular and humanist.  It rejects God and instead puts its faith in man.  Because of this, the Left finds itself in conflict with the historic theology of our nation, Christianity.  Christianity teaches that human beings are sinful and selfish and will only be perfected in heaven.  Christianity recognizes that capitalism works because overall, humans can be relied on to act in their own self-interest.  The Left works endlessly to eradicate “greed”, mold people to their idea of perfection, and create a heavenly society on earth (i.e. Utopia).  This is what John Lennon’s “Imagine” was all about.  Christians put their faith and hope in Christ.  Leftists put their faith and hope in humans, especially in elite Progressive academics, media personalities, politicians, and bureaucrats.  They believe these “enlightened” humans will lead us away from the selfishness of capitalist society toward a peaceful, equal, and benevolent society by implementing a sufficient amount of government regulation and control.  Christianity recognizes that every individual is given free will by God.  The Left wants a society where bureaucrats have the power to give and revoke freewill as they see fit.  Christians are wary of high taxes and too many regulations because they recognize that humans are easily corrupted by power.  Leftist Progressives, demand that we “Change” and “Progress” our society from one founded on individual free will, individual responsibility, and limited government to an ever more oppressive and secular State.

Christian faith is based on the historical records of martyred eyewitnesses.  Leftism requires faith in the power of collective government to bring peace and justice.  This faith is blind to the injustice, poverty, abduction, torture, and murder that Leftist governments have perpetrated over the last 100 years.  Socialism and communism (international and national) is unrestrained Leftism in practice.  History maintains a clear record of the atrocities of the Soviets in Russia, Mao’s Red China, the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazi) in Germany, and the Communists in Cuba, North Korean, and Cambodia.  The faith of the Left must be very strong indeed.

As the Administration disdainfully dismisses the allegation that President Obama and the Progressive movement have anything other than Christian principles as their foundation, it is important to pause and consider.  Progressivism is not about you, your quality of life, or your job.  It is about their plan for society and the Theology of the Left.

    Obama Admin: Fighting Terrorism but Supporting Terrorists?

    News recently emerged that “the Obama administration is imposing sanctions on an Egypt-based group that has claimed responsibility for attacks against Egyptian officials, Israeli interests and foreign tourists in Cairo and the Sinai peninsula. The State Department said Wednesday [4/9/14] it has designated Ansar Bayt al-Muqadis a ‘foreign terrorist organization.’”

    While ostensibly a laudable move, some—many in Egypt—think this announcement is a ruse to portray the Obama administration as committed to combating terrorism, even as it supports the head of the terrorist-snake, the Muslim Brotherhood.

    For instance, according to Mustafa Zayid, the Coordinator of the Sufi Coalition Forces in Egypt,

    Christian Publisher Plans Pro-’Gay’ Book, Employees ‘Under Threat’

    Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?

    The book’s author, Matthew Vines, is a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist known for manipulating Christian terminology to advance the counter-Christian homosexualist agenda.

    Despite his frequent use of a Christian-like lexicon, Vines surprisingly admits to running an apostate enterprise that he calls The Reformation Project. An unabashed denier of Biblical teaching on sexual morality, Vines has publicly acknowledged that his goal is to “reform church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity.” The book is scheduled to be published on April 22, 2014.

    How The ‘Gay’ Jihad Normalized A Filthy Practice

    The public career beheading of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich at the hands of pagan sexual jihadists, coupled with an escalating epidemic of Christian business owners facing harsh government persecution for merely living out their faith, has startled awake an America lulled to sleep by the left’s intentionally deceptive, yet oh-so-sweet sounding serenade of “equality, tolerance and diversity.”

    Average folks have finally begun to recognize that America’s “progressive” power class of cultural Marxists and left-wing statists really intends, and always has, to subjugate ideological dissenters through abject inequality and intolerance, while demanding blind obedience to an anti-Christian, sexual-anarchist, socio-political agenda.

    Judge To Christians: Celebrate Gay Weddings Or Go To Jail

    An administrative judge has ruled Christians must now celebrate sodomy, or face jail.

    Spreading “civil rights commissions” in most cities and states are turning toward anti-Christian persecution, when Democrats and Judges rule that homosexual “rights” take precedence over Religious Freedom to opt out.

    Such was the case last week, when a pro-gay Judge in Colorado supported a pro-gay “rights” commission to enforce a Democrat non-discrimination law that openly punishes Christians.

    Jack Phillips, a Christian baker, was deemed to have no First Amendment protections, no right to protest, no free speech, no freedom of religion. Instead he was warned by Judge Robert N. Spencer that he must personally help celebrate homosexual “wedding” ceremonies or face $500 fines per future incident or jail.

    Why A Republican Governor Vetoed Religious Freedom

    Before the Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (RINO-AZ) vetoed a religious freedom bill that would have protected Christian business owners, she was warned not to embrace the homosexual agenda by nearly a dozen law professors.

    “Nearly a dozen leading law professors from Harvard, Stanford, George Mason, Notre Dame and other top institutions across America have endorsed the controversial legislation in Arizona that would strengthen the state’s religious-rights standards,” reports WND.

    The bill has been egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics,” the professors said in a letter to Brewer. “We write because we believe that you should make your decision on the basis of accurate information.
