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!

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

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.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

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.
