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.

    Govornment And Churches Are Overwhelmed – What Do We Do With The Orphans On The Border?

    We are facing a great disaster on the southern border of our nation, and how we react is going to have serious repercussions. First of all, we have to take care of these people. Churches and government are doing their best to help, but are overwhelmed.

    What is the best solution for this problem? For those children who have them, it would seem the best thing to do, would be to reunite them whether they are here legally or not. The problem is, that would send a message that illegal kids are welcomed here if their parents are here,

    Well then, maybe we should send them back to whoever was taking care of them. But can we trust the authorities down there? Once many years ago I was trying to help two street children.

    Gov. Huckabee At Marriage March: ‘We Will Not Bow Our Knees To Nebuchadnezzar!’

    Is the American majority’s will to defend natural marriage against the rainbow of perverse counterfeits dead? Has America become a Judiciocracy ruled by a bevy of black-robed autocrats?

    Not if you ask the thousands who marched on Washington Thursday in this year’s “March for Marriage” rally. Not if you ask potential 2016 presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

    They took on the counter-constitutional idea of judicial supremacy. They defended true marriage.

    Juneteenth,The Oldest And Most-Recognized Observance Of The Demise Of Slavery In The US

    Washington, D.C. — On “Juneteenth,” the oldest and most-recognized observance of the demise of slavery in the United States, members of the Project 21 black leadership network are suggesting that black Americans make a personal assessment of how much freedom they actually enjoy these days and how they may be able to expand upon that freedom in the future through limits on government expansion.

    Juneteenth, an official holiday or observance in at least 40 states, is on June 19.

    “For what began as a celebration of black Americans’ release from chattel slavery, Juneteenth is important to remember today because all Americans forget at their peril that freedom doesn’t come for free,” said Project 21′s Stacy Swimp, a frequent speaker at and sponsor of past Juneteenth celebrations in Michigan.

    Blind Squirrel Finds A Supreme Court Nut

    While in the vast majority of their constitutionally related writings the Founding Fathers were explicit that the judicial branch of government is effectively the weakest of the three, such is not the case with today’s modern misapplication. Americans currently live under what is, for all intents and purposes, a counter-constitutional judiciocracy led by nine unelected, black-robed autocrats.

    Over many decades, the other two branches of government, the legislative and the executive, have, for some inexplicable reason, acquiesced to the notion of judicial supremacy – a dangerously dominant concept that erroneously regards the United States Supreme Court as the final arbiter of all things public policy. If this is so, then these nine men and women are ultimately unaccountable to anyone or anything, and the other two branches of government are but toothless figurehead bodies merely spinning their wheels while spending our dollars.

    Atheist Group Calls For ‘Booing,’ ‘Blowing Raspberries’ To Disrupt Prayer

    In an unhinged response to Monday’s Supreme Court decision in Greece v. Galloway – which reaffirmed Americans’ First Amendment right to public prayer, to include sectarian prayer – the always entertaining Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has announced its retaliatory “path forward” for Christ-haters.

    Saul Alinsky would be proud.

    On its website, the Christophobic FFRF, headquarter in Madison, Wisconsin, posted a member essay calling the High Court’s decision, “disastrous for state-church separation,” and frantically warned, “This decision could be the equivalent of Dred Scott or Plessy for our [anti-Christian] cause.”

    The Supreme Court’s infamous Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson decisions, of course, upheld slavery and racial segregation respectively. This is richly ironic considering that groups like the FFRF, the ACLU,
