Example text

77 In order to properly discern the revelation of God, humanity requires a biblical norm, “. . ” 78 William Bentley carefully documents the historical reason why Black evangelicals have adhered so closely to a strong biblical norm before and during their radicalization in the Black theology movement. ]79 As leader of the National Black Evangelical Association during the inception of Black theology, Bentley found himself leading the group past their former theological leanings toward an exciting time of developing a “holistic liberation” theology that included elements of traditional evangelical theology with the liberation message.

39 What I think is fascinating about Wimbush’s understanding of the prophetic apology here is that he interprets it as African American’s profound desire to be integrated into American society. ”42 I would equate bibliomancy with a magical usage of the biblical text, although Wimbush is careful to note that he sees this usage in the fourth “reading” only as a “tendency,” rather than as the only way the Bible was read. The groups that are included in this fourth “reading” have usually been pejoratively labeled as “sects” by mainstream church folks.

Without carrying on the Freedom Struggle of those who marched, sang, staged pray-ins at lunch counters, and resisted virulent injustice with disciplined nonviolent action then our current generation will allow the gains of the past to slowly dribble away with each regressive piece of legislation passed by national, state, and local officials whose neoconservative agenda is to rollback and erase those gains.
