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!

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

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 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!
