The Gospel Truth

A Real Conspiracy | May 2, 2014

We live in a society that denigrates and denies conspiracy theories.  Sure many theories are unmitigated balderdash, such as Kennedy’s Secret Service Driver actually fired the fatal shot but in truth history is ladedened with conspiracies.

Communism is a conspiracy and is probably the most long-lasting and successful conspiracy in history.

Even more sinister is the fact that the Russian KGB has had an influential role in the prominence of LT as a global movement.  According to former Romanian communist operative Ion Pacepa since ancient times the Russians have used religion to manipulate people.

Like the tsars before them the KGB used the churches to instill dreams about world revolution and heaven on earth to keep the masses at bay.

Because of their imperial vision they used the KGB to work through the church to help the Kremlin expand its influence into Latin America and beyond.

Creating a secret intelligence army of religious servants and using it to promote the Kremlin’s interests abroad was an important task of the KGB. Since priests were not allowed to become KGB officers, they often assumed the position of a cooptee or deep cover officer. Thousands of uncooperative religious, like those in 18th century France, perished in the wake.

The KGB’s effort to use religion to expand the Kremlin’s influence abroad began with Nikita Khrushchev in 1959.  His  “secret weapon” was Cuba, which was to serve as a springboard to launch a KGB-devised religion into Latin America.”

It was Khrushchev, who called the new KGB-contrived religion Liberation Theology.

His appetite for “liberation” has had many KGB derivatives, such as the Palestine Liberation Organization, the National Liberation Army of Columbia (FARC), and the National Liberation Army of Bolivia.

He also wanted to send a few priests who were cooptees as deep cover officers to Latin America, to expand Liberation Theology South of our border.

To affect this the KGB also built a new international religious organization in Prague called the Christian Peace Conference (CPC) to spread Liberation Theology within Latin America.

As a doctrine Liberation Theology urges the poor and downtrodden to revolt against their established governments as well as capitalism and form a Communist government, not in the name of Marx or Lenin, but in the name of Jesu Christi, a revolutionary who opposed economic and social discrimination.

Since then Liberation Theology has been a breeding ground for revolutionary ideas and violence against the wealthy class.

In 1968, the KGB’s Christian Peace Conference maneuvered the leftist South American bishops into holding a Conference of Latin American Bishops at Medellin, Colombia.

At that conference, the attending bishops proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus Christ with those of Karl Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow capitalism.

This movement encouraged the poor to rebel against the institutionalized violence of poverty, and to recommend it to the World Council of Churches for official approval. The Medellin Conference did both.

FYI: Romanian writer and former operative Ion Pacepa and historian Ronald RICH-lak Rychlak have written a comprehensive analysis of the KGB’s nefarious role in this conspiracy in their book Disinformation.

All new religions need a Bible.  Their seminal text is A Theology of Liberation, written in 1971, by Gustavo Gutiérrez, a Peruvian priest and theologian, also known as the father of liberation theology.

While Marx stood Hegel on his head in directing the focus of life from ideal pursuits to materialistic endeavors, Gutierrez wedded the two thinkers in an ontological union that has created a new social engine for all of Latin America, if not the entire world.

This new theology has man at its core making it more like anthropology than theology, which is ostensibly about God.  It does not limit itself to morality or even ethics but involves economic and political agendas as well.

Its major points are that Christ came into this world to liberate man from oppression, not to open the gates of Heaven.  The real goal of Christianity was to struggle for the full liberation of man.

To the liberationisti every socio-economic system that is not socialist is essentially a system of exploitation and oppression.

Prior to liberation theology, Catholicism was unambiguously hostile to socialism and communism, which it saw as “godless.”

Gutierrez’s book was swiftly acknowledged as a pioneering and prophetic approach to theology, which famously made a preferential option for the poor, at the top of its agenda.

Gutierrez’s theology is founded on two contradictory beliefs: (1) God loves all persons equally and gratuitously; (2) God loves the poor preferentially.

Sounds like: All men are equal—only some are more equal!

A student of the French Revolution, Gutierrez proposes a end to capitalism and its replacement by a social democracy that will give all the world’s poor a sense of hope in the transformation of the human soul in its relationship to a self-communicating God.

HOPE AND TRANSFORMATIOM—HMMMMM!!!

Liberation Theology teaches that the church must stand on the side of the impoverished and the downtrodden, and that it must, if necessary, support the overthrow of social systems that contribute to their oppression…like ours.

Its main sacrament is victimhood.

In recent decades, Latin America’s Liberation Theology movement has been oriented towards the image of Jesus Christ as the Redeemer and Liberator.

This type of thinking is prevalent in several newly published books on Jesus.

Jesus is portrayed as a revolutionary dressed in guerrilla fatigues and carrying a rifle.

A primary critique of liberation theology is its tendency towards violence. Gutierrez, its greatest exponent, has said, The theology of liberation is rooted in a revolutionary militancy. This is not what the Church meant by the Church militant!

Liberation Theology is a radical departure from the essential message of the Gospel.  Thanks to Father Gutiérrez the poor now had their own ideology—one rooted in Marxist praxis.

In 1984, Pope John Paul II charged the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, led by Cardinal Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI, to prepare an analysis of Liberation Theology. His devastating study exposed Liberation Theology as a heinous combination of class struggle and violent revolution.

According to these revolutionaries, true Christians must commit themselves to the Marxist Revolution as a religious duty.  Violence, stealing and lying can be employed for the greater good of mankind.   This is the language and praxis, not of Jesus Christ but more of Karl Marx, Josef Stalin and Saul Alinsky.

Any time you see the word oppression treat it as another warning because it is a Marxist term that somehow has invaded our translations of the Bible used in Mass.

While the historical and religious roots of liberation theology may be found in the prophetic tradition of evangelists and missionaries from the earliest colonial days in Latin America – its praxis and methodology had more traditional communist forebears

In the first year of his papacy, Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903) devoted an encyclical to condemning socialism. 

 QUOD APOSTOLICI MUNERIS

Liberation Theology has a much broader tapestry than its Marxist threads.

Virtually every social movement that has anything to do with religion, race, sexual preference or the environment has emanated from this philosophy.

Liberation Theology is certainly not on the right side of history…whatever that empty term means but it is definitely in the wave of a chaotic global future.  This raises the question: will the United States be able to withstand its powere surge or will it be swept away in its powerful vortex?
