Example text

Liberation theology is always done from the perspective of those who have traditionally been rendered powerless and voiceless in society and in the church; those who suffer as a result of domination and oppression, whose opinion does not matter, nor is it asked for, because from them no wisdom is expected. Liberation theology is unthinkable without its rootedness in the struggles and intuitive theological responses of the people. 2. In doing so, liberation theology took seriously the issues of power and powerlessness, raised questions not only regarding individual attitudes or behavior, but pertinent to societal and ecclesial structures and systems of domination and subjugation.

Attempts to unmask contemporary forms of idolatry are common. They all affirm hope, historical and social hope for those often without hope . . 55 It is in these characteristics that the unique contribution of kairos theology, as an expression of liberation theology, is celebrated.

This had no bearing whatsoever on their situation . . 15 We had heard Koot Vorster: Our only guide is the Bible.
