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!

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.

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Running Time: 28 minutes
