I Don’t Understand

After Glenn Beck’s big rally on Saturday, he went on “Fox News Sunday” and talked more about Obama and faith. Namely, he spoke about Obama’s “liberation theology.” He defined this term on his radio show last Tuesday:

“You see, it’s all about victims and victimhood; oppressors and the oppressed; reparations, not repentance; collectivism, not individual salvation. I don’t know what that is, other than it’s not Muslim, it’s not Christian. It’s a perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ as most Christians know it.”

I’ve read that quote a half dozen times and I still don’t understand it. It’s a lot of words that I’m sure some people will lap up, but I just don’t get it. Maybe that last part of the quote holds the key: “the gospel of Jesus Christ as most Christians know it.”

So instead of the ACTUAL gospel of Jesus Christ that calls for tolerance and love and helping the needy and the poor, most Christians are following/believing something else entirely.
