Religion Class at Louisiana State University Will Argue That Social Justice is Part of ‘Christian Liberation’

“insights drawn from these social movements to be consistent with and central to Christian liberation as portrayed by Jesus in the first century”

The left typically despises religion, but they know they can’t get rid of it so they’re just going to take it over.

Campus Reform reports:

Social justice movements are ‘central to Christian liberation,’ religion class argues

Louisiana State University (LSU) is offering a class next semester that teaches that contemporary social justice ideology is “central to Christian liberation as portrayed by Jesus in the first century.”

The class is called Christian Contemporary Thought and is offered through the university’s Ogden Honors College.

“Are you curious about how religion has been affected by the cultural movements of feminism, queer theory, race studies, and atheism,” the course description reads.

The description then states, “While many assume these contemporary movements are antithetical to Christianity, there has also been a vibrant paradigm shift over the past fifty years and many Christian thinkers have taken the insights drawn from these social movements to be consistent with and central to Christian liberation as portrayed by Jesus in the first century.”

Madhuri M Yadlapati, the instructor of Contemporary Christian Thought, believes that her course will help students gain a greater sense of the values that Jesus taught.

“The course I’m teaching will seek to understand several contemporary movements that define themselves as Christian,” Yadlapati told Campus Reform.

“Some of these texts cite the Jesus of the gospels, especially his concern for the poor and those who were deemed social outcasts,” she added. “They see a basic alignment between Christian ethics and improving the given world by repairing instances of social injustice.”

They’re right. “Christian Liberation” is Marxism in drag, so it’s completely compatible with “social justice”. In fact “social justice” has its roots in the “progressive” Christian left around the turn of the last century.

“Are you curious about how religion has been affected by the cultural movements of feminism, queer theory, race studies, and atheism,” the course description reads.”

I’m also curious how religion has been affected by materialism, nihilism, the rise of cheap pornography, satanism, unchecked government corruption, and officially-sanctioned child molestation.
Do you have a course for that, too?

Seems like a course designed to create a Jesus in Marx’s image rather than teach the Christ of Scripture.

A similar approach to teaching would have us believe Hitler was a peace loving hippie and treehugger, or that Stalin was a right-wing religious fanatic.

Social justice movements are ‘central to Christian liberation,’

Like Hell they are.

consistent with and central to Christian liberation
Well, that’s a sneaky way to word it, but he’s right. He’s talking about ‘liberation theology’ which is considered a heresy by traditional Christian churches. It’s basically Progressivism before it dumps even the pretense of God and Jesus.

(And, yes, Progressivism is the child of Christian doctrine and Marxism. Then file the serial numbers off. [Yes, I’m mixing metaphors. Live with it.])
