Accusations about the liberation movement of African peoples are mostly smokescreen and political drivel. If the number of Christian leaders who have done something to make justice come alive for African peoples is more than a tenth of all leaders it would be highly suspect. We know that the vast majority model their work after ancient conventions known to be the tools of greed, oppression and ignorance. Real life in God has no outlet for merchandising and theft. “Ticket to heaven” salvation and little compassion for the oppressed is shallow stuff indeed.
