Theology means the study of God. Liberal Theology means a study of the Liberal god.’ Or, Liberal Theology is a study of the religion of which liberalism is a part: atheism.
In Tidbit 2, I wrote that liberalism’s greatest tool to impose their worldview on the rest of us is through the redefinition of words. I used examples such as freedom, love, and grace. I would like to address another word: equality.
According to liberalism, people are equal when they possess equal things, or the same things, or the same amount of things. This belief has its origin in the doctrine of Socialism. Allow me to explain. Communism breaks society down into proletariats and bourgeois. They believe the proletariats are common working class people, and the bourgeois mess things up by wanting to own property and pursue profits. In other words, equality rests with the proletariats, and the bourgeois promote inequality by owning property and profiting from the oppression of the poor. Therefore, to be equal, we must rid society of the bourgeoisie. Socialism doesn’t use that same verbiage, but holds the same beliefs. Socialism believes that to make the rich and poor equal, the government must take from the rich and give to the poor. Therefore, through their adoption of socialism, liberalism declares that equality exists only when everyone is the same; i.e. when everyone has the same things.
My first example of the liberal view of equality is President Barack Obama, a liberal, who once told Bill O’Reilly in an interview, “You make enough money”. At another time, the President told Joseph Wurzelbacher, "when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." These statements originate from another of Obama’s Communistic/Marxist views “Distribution of income”—which originates in more Marx pseudo wisdom: “From each according to his ability, and to each according to his need.”
First, this proves the link between liberalism and Socialism/Communism*, which are both doctrines of the religion of atheism. Second, President Obama expresses a variation of the liberal (Socialism/Communism) view of equality: everyone should have equal income. In reality, no one has the right to determine how much money another person should make! That is also known as playing God!
Another example of liberal equality is President Obama declaring support for gay marriage, and Transgender men using woman’s bathrooms and showers by using the Golden Rule: “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them…” -Mat7:12. First, the Golden Rule is designed to limit retaliation inherent to man’s sin nature. It has nothing to do with sexual perversion. The Bible condemns homosexuality on many occasions(1Cor6:9; Jude7), so contrary to our president…and liberalism, Jesus certainly did not intend to commend homosexuality when He inspired the writing of the Golden Rule!!
Second, President Obama was following the liberal mantra that people are equal when they have equal things, i.e. because heterosexuals can be married; to be equal, homosexuals must also be allowed to marry. Or, because transgender people are people too, and they want to use the bathroom of their choice, to be equal we must allow them to use whatever bathrooms they desire.
On the contrary, the Biblical answer is equality is a theological term. Equality has two applications:
1.It refers to the nature of mankind.
2.It refers to equal application under law.
First, God created man in His image and likeness(Gen1:28). The gift of God’s image to man is the ‘ONLY’ reason men are equal. The Declaration of Independence includes: “All men are created equal”; which originates in the Bible; for it is God Who created man in His image, from which man’s equality is derived. On the contrary, if evolution were true, men could not be equal, for it is impossible for men to evolve equally.
Second, equality refers to applying the law to man equally…in the same situation!!! It does not mean applying the law the same in every situation. For laws to be just, i.e. equally applied, they require the same or similar circumstances. For example, murder is punishable by law. Yet, because a man kills another man does not necessarily constitute murder! The circumstances must be determined ‘how’ and ‘why’ the culprit killed the victim. If another man breaks into your house at night, and you shoot him dead…that is not murder!
On the contrary, equality does not mean that men are equal because they possess the same things—I repeat, that is Communism/Socialism! God gifted human beings with His image and likeness making them equal, but He also gifted mankind with potential, purpose, gifts, talents, and character. Although He gave every human being these gifts, which means He gifted mankind equally---He did not give every person the ‘same’ potential, same purpose, same gifts, same talents, and same character. In other words, every person has gifts from God, but those gifts are all different in kind and degree (Mat25:14-15). Because this is true, no two people will ever have the same things!!! And this does not even include other variables that all factor in to determine ‘why’ people have more or less than others.
Unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist, and liberal professor William Ayers once said, “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents.” Sounds to me very much like the doctrine of “steal, kill, and destroy” (Jn10:10)! Remember, all doctrines are religious!! Guess ‘WHO’ is the implementer of the “kill, steal, and destroy” doctrine? The correct guess gives you the origin of the Ayer doctrine; the Obama doctrine, and the liberal view of equality doctrine! For any doctrine that violates God’s word is religious…and has an origin! Christians are called to expose the works of darkness (Eph5:11).
*Liberalism has evolved into leftism: they are now one. At one time, liberalism and leftism were separate philosophies.
