Nuestra Latinoamerica Contradictoria

By Pedro C. Moreno
Published June 25, 2008

Cuánto amamos y cuánto nos duele, nuestra Latinoamérica contradictoria. Cómo no quisieramos verla libre, próspera y grande. Pero todavía falta algo. Inmersa en ese algo está la necesidad de ser autocríticos, de reconocer nuestros errores, de identificar nuestros problemas, de aceptar nuestra responsabilidad en resolverlos.

Una Latinoamérica tan rica en recursos naturales, pero dependiente de la ayuda e influencia extranjera. Una Latinoamérica profundamente india y mestiza, donde sin embargo se valora más lo “blanco” que lo “otro”. Tierra de profunda religiosidad, pero insuficiente moral, donde la ley se acata (siempre se acata), pero no se cumple. De políticos que, salvo excepciones, se lucran de la miseria del pueblo, más interesados en redistribuir el capital que en producirlo. Un continente que desconfía de lo propio y mira hacia lo ajeno y al mismo tiempo se cree víctima inocente y sin culpa de la “intervención extranjera”. Donde el autoritarismo es cotidiano, en la iglesia, en el estado, en la familia, en la empresa. Tierra de muchos machos, pero no suficientes hombres.

¡Ay, de nuestra Latinoamérica contradictoria! Tantos patriotas que pasaron por la historia, y tan pocos héroes que imitar. De presidentes que dicen preferir a su nación por encima de su familia, sin importarles la destrucción de ésta última, dizque, para salvar a la nación. De niños y jóvenes que preferirían tener una familia unida y protectora, antes que una economía fuerte o una sociedad “primermundista”. Donde ahora todos quieren ser “originarios” pero sin reconocer lo indígena en ellos mismos, ni amar como hermanos a los campesinos pobres, a los marginados y discriminados. Donde todavía priva el apellido, la tradición, el dinero, importando menos la honestidad, el trabajo esforzado, la autorealización sacrificial.

Cómo no quisieramos ver que se respete la libertad de opinión y pensamiento, y no se deshumanize e insulte a cualquiera que esté en contra de la posición “oficial”. Que los gobernantes dejen de creerse reyes y señores y sean lo que son, servidores públicos. Que los caudillos no manipulen, incluso métodos democráticos, para perpetuar su gobierno. Que los ciudadanos sean activos partícipes y forjadores de una nueva patria latinoamericana y no pasivos cómplices del status quo.

Que se deje de lado el paternalismo de políticos, religiosos y otros que siempre saben mejor que el pueblo, lo que el pueblo quiere o necesita. Que la ética recupere su dimensión moral, que el celibato sea con castidad, que el ansia de riqueza sea acompañado de solidaridad y generosidad, que la mentira no sea institucional, el adulterio la norma, la explotación un medio de producción. Que tengamos una sociedad con más héroes y menos mártires.

Latinoamérica puede y confiamos en que será grande. ¡Que Dios nos ayude en esta gran tarea!

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

These shocking eyewitness accounts expose the dangers of abortion not only to unborn children, but to the health and lives women as well. An antidote to the smokescreens of the liberal media, these short clips show what really happens in and around abortion clinics.

Although the content is emotionally gut-wrenching, these videos have been used in church seminars and small groups to educate Christians on the abortion issue and to lead people toward a pro-life position. Contains 2 hours and 40 minutes of materials that can be shown separately.

Watch these pro-life videos on-line.

“These videos helped change my mind from pro-choice to pro-life. Your videos are what did it for me. I will be walking in next year’s March For Life in San Francisco.” — A. Jackson, California

“I was going to have an abortion until I saw your video. Praise Jesus!”
— M. Drew, YouTube Commenter

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

Running Time: 195 minutes
