MARXIST, RELIGIOUS, NON-CHRISTIAN, ILLOGICAL
PROF. RICHARD G. BENEFIELD
l. EXPOSE AND OPPOSE
Liberation theology is being taught and preached in South American
in other places including the United States. (1999). This was the situation for several
decades. It should be exposed, called what it is, and opposed.
2. DEFINED BY PHILOSOPHERS
During the many years I have taught philosophy courses in the
system, some philosophers in their writings have defined so-called liberation theology. In
this case the word “liberation” is a clue. Philosophers define liberation theology as
Christian Marxism or Christian Communism. It is an attempt to base Christian theology
on the Communism of Karl Marx.
3. MARX AS PREACHER AND ATHEIST
Karl Marx (1818-1883), like his parents, was a member of the Jewish
(religion). His father was a lawyer who could not get work in Germany because he was a
Jew. So the Marx family converted to a Lutheran Church denomination. Karl Marx
became a preacher, and the first book that Rev. Karl Marx wrote was a “Commentary on
the Gospel of Matthew.” Later he rejected the Bible, Christianity, and the creation and
became an atheist. He and Friedrich Engels (1820-1895), later wrote “The Manifesto of
the Communist Party,” and the foundation of Marxist Communism was laid, and Marxist
Communism was, and is, a proclaimer of atheism.
4. POPE TELLS PRIESTS TO STOP TEACHING LIBERATION THEOLOGY
Priests in the Roman Catholic Church in South (Latin) American
been teaching and preaching Marxist liberation theology for decades. They continue.
Now it appears that Marxist Communism is falling apart all around the world, and that it is
doomed to end. Pope John Paul II, as reported on television news, and in other news
media, told the South American priests in 1999 to stop teaching liberation theology. But
they have sown Marxist liberationist seeds all over Latin America. Why did the pope wait
so long to tell his priests to stop teaching and preaching liberation theology?
5. NUMBER ONE CHURCH/NUMBER TWO CHURCH
Roman Catholic Church is the largest church denomination.
Church (“Protestant”) is number two church denomination. They got to be One and Two
by being timely, by compromising, and by trying to make the right statements at the right
time. Example: Both church denominations supported and practiced
slavery in the American southern states. The Vatican (the pope)
was the only foreign state
(government) to recognize and accept the Confederate States of America (CSA). The
Southern Baptist Convention began in 1840 in the South as a slavery supporting church
denomination. Roman Catholic bishops, Methodist bishops, other bishops, and Southern
Baptist business and plantation owners owned Black (Negro) slaves as did people in other
Southern White denominations. They quit owning slaves only because the South (CSA)
lost the American Civil War.
6. AMERICAN HISTORIANS OUGHT TO TELL THE TRUTH -- FOR A
Slant, censor, and ban some American history books! Soft-soap
and dodge the
truth. Practice a phony scholarship and continue hurting and damaging minority people,
and the nation itself.
7. NAMES DROPPED
News media (1999) carried reports that many Baptist churches dropped
“Baptist” off their church billboards and advertisements. Some called themselves “Calvary
Church,” “Christian Fellowship Church,” “Main Street Christian Church,” and so on. The
Southern Baptist Church denomination has 40 percent of her members who do not
participate in any church activities whatsoever. There is a controversy in the Southern
Baptist Convention (SBC) about dropping “Baptist” from the names of local churches.
News sources reported that the SBC lost 20,000 members in Oklahoma, and in all other
states in 1998.
Roman Catholicism has closed many churches in the United States
She has closed churches and seminaries in various places. Yet she is suffering from a
severe shortage of priests, and is now trying to recruit men who retired from other jobs to
train as Catholic priests.
Many Roman Catholic Churches dropped the name “Catholic” from
churches. They call themselves such things as “Holy Redeemer Church,” “Good Shepherd
Church,” “Holy Family Church,” and so on.
Splits have occurred in the Roman Catholic Church during the past
One example is the split and starting of a new Catholic Church in the American state of
Illinois. One reason for the split is that the people do not want to be members of the
Italian Roman Catholic Church denomination. They want an American Catholic Church
denomination. Another reason for the split is to end celibacy and allow priests to marry
because, it is claimed, there is an extremely high percent of Roman Catholic priests who
are practicing homosexuals.
8. FIRST CHURCH ON WORDLY AVENUE
Church denominations lost their respectability. Church denominations
popularity and a civil, citizen-type religion. Church denominations were converted to the
world. Therefore: Worldly Church denominations!
Liberated? Indeed! Converted? Yes, indeed!
Converted to the evils of the
9. CHRIST AS CHRISTIAN MARXIST LEADER
Liberationists who proclaim liberation theology claim that Jesus
Christ is the leader
of Christian Marxism (Christian Communism). Jesus Christ is presented in the real Bible
(not the “Bible” which was produced by the
Communist (political) Party), as the Son of God Who believed 100% in God His Father.
Thus, Jesus was neither an atheist nor Christian atheist. He never would have identified
with the atheist Karl Marx.
10. CHRISTIAN PROLETARIANS?
Proletarians (poor people or working class people) were supposed
by Marx to be
instruments of violent Communist revolution. So he taught that the working class (blue
collar mainly) could be used, but after the leaders from the proletarians helped produce the
world-wide classless society through violent revolution, they were to be immediately
executed. Why? Because Communism got them to be Communist revolutionaries, and
some other philosophy might lead or incite them to support some other type of revolution.
Christ would never have supported hatred among classes of people,
11. CASTRO AND MARXIST CUBA
When leading the liberation of Cuba, years ago, Fidel Castro appeared
Steve Allen television show in the United States. He said that he was reared a Roman
Catholic, and that he was a Catholic. Pope John Paul II visited Castro and his Communist
Cuba. The news media called the pope the world’s greatest Christian, and Castro the
world’s greatest atheist. None of this was true. After Castro came to power in Cuba he
made Communism the official political and economic philosophy, and wanted to make
Roman Catholicism the official government religion. (Unification of church and state --
government). But we heard no more about that plan.
After the pope visited Castro and Cuba some Protestant churches,
non-denominational churches, reported that the Castro government cracked down more
on them and allowed less freedom than before the visit.
This is all fact.
12. GAY LIBERATION MOVEMENT AND OTHER LIB MOVEMENTS
Marxist androgyny (gay sexual relations) was both taught and practiced.
Roman Catholic priests, and Protestant ministers, and “holy men,” and “holy women” of
other religions practice, preach, and teach gay lifestyles as alternative Christian lifestyles.
Some of these “divines” even claim that Christ and the Apostle Paul were gay.
Blasphemy! There were no gay Apostles, or gay Christian preachers in the New
Testament. Christ was never gay.
The Gay Liberation Movement, Women’s Liberation Movement, and
Liberation Movement had their beginnings (roots) in Marxist liberation philosophy.
Moreover members of these social movements say in philosophical writings, and other
writings, that they are Marxists, or that much of their philosophy is based on Marxism.
13. POLITICALLY CORRECT LANGUAGE
Politically Correct (PC) libbers and religionists want to end
gender words such as
father, mother, brother, sister, his, hers, Father, God, virgin, he, she, et cetera. In addition
to being blasphemous from the Bible’s standpoint this is also terrible grammar. Various
religionists have produced “translations,” and paraphrases of the Bible in which they
removed the gender words. Thus God became “it,” Christ is not “Son,” there is no Virgin
Mary, and so forth.
Some church denominations have produced hymnals, and prayerbooks,
gender neutral, which means that they have omitted gender terms (words).
The so-called PC language is erroneous but supposed to be “classless”
as part of
the liberated Christian classless (Marxist) universal (world wide) society.
14. SHARING SOCIETY
“Sharing jag,” and the so-called Christian Liberation Theology
bag go together. “I
want to share with you” is a favorite saying. The libbers do not want to say, “I want to
GIVE you....” The GIVE does not suggest “sharing.” It is a peculiar twist of terminology
which gets away from the idea of private property, and private ownership. But most
people are not aware of these things.
15. CHRISTIAN SOCIALISM
Libbers are often involved in socialisms (plural). Socialism
ownership of production, and distribution, and control of consumerism.
Kosovo, and Yugoslavia (1999), with the President Slobodan Milosevic
has as the
main political party, the so-called Christian Socialist Party. The so-called Christian
Democrats is a socialist political party in Italy, madeup mostly of Roman Catholics.
There is no such thing as a Christian political party! You
evangelicals, and liberals ought to get this fact in your heads! You have been politically
16. BEHOLD YOUR MAD HERO
Marx taught violent revolution through causing more hatreds among
classes of people. His method for winning the world to Communism was based on hate.
He had a reputation of being a hate filled person. He promoted assassinations, other
murders, political imprisonment, and political executions (the use of capital punishment).
He also neglected his family and children. He wrote about “the Jewish problem,” and
wanted to “blend” the Jews into his universal (world wide) classless society. Most Jews,
based on their history, would not blend. So once again there would need to be a
holocaust against the Jews.
All of these things add up to Marx the mad (psychotic, insane)
YOUR MENTALLY ILL HERO!
17. LABEL CONFUSIONS
Labels are illogical as I demonstrated in other writings.
For example see: LOGIC:
CATALOGUE OF NEW FALLACIES at: http://www.potentools.com/mind/logic/
Labels such as liberal, conservative, neo-orthodox, middle-of-the-road, and about 40
others are illogical and confusions. There is no logic for conservatives, and another logic
So wear your labels as you ride dinosaurs to extinction!
18. MARXISM ENDING
Marxism and Communism appear to be ending around the world.
We should hope
so. It is the end of another illusion. So go ahead you dedicated libbers and go down to
the sea in your sinking ships.
19. HANG A HALO ON IT
Many people now readily write about so-called liberation theology
Marxism and Communism are dying. But is liberation theology religious? My answer is;
“yes, it is as religious as hell itself.” Considering all of the evils this so-called liberation
theology was, and is involved in, proceed libbers and try to hang a halo on it!
