Our brother Job found videos of James Cone explaining his contrived theology in his own words. There are 2 videos to review. One I can embed here via YouTube, but the other I cannot embed and you’ll have to use the link to Harvard’s Divinity School web site below to view that video. Viewing both gives full details of what I’ll be covering in this particular post.
That is the first video above and click this link to view the 2nd video: Strange Fruit: The Cross and the Lynching Tree (October 2006). It is 90 minutes long, but if you want to understand what this heresy called “Black Liberation Theology” is all about from the creator’s mouth you should view both videos.
James Cone is the man people like Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. took direction from regarding his manner of preaching and just see the 2nd video in this post and notice how many times Wright says the name “James Cone”.
But regarding the videos above. I noticed some interesting things when viewing the first YouTube video that is above:
A theology to serve his flesh, because of his hang-up about some who played on race themselves. Flesh serving evil responded to, with more flesh serving evil and ignoring Colossians 3:9-17. Cone’s theology rest on past deeds of evil, in some White’s lust for serving flesh, responded to with Cone’s own Black lust for serving his own flesh.
This gives Cone a means to try and shakedown even the White person who notes they were not alive during many of the atrocities he hinges his contrived faith (race cult) on. Christianity is not about political fights against Romans or Whites either, it’s about Christ and Him crucified for our sins, because we all need a savior. No matter who the majority is, every minority is just as unrighteous as the majority, Romans 3:9-20.
By definition, while advocates of “Black Liberation Theology” deny it, they see Black as good and White as evil. The label of “White” is given to Clarance Thomas, to assert he does evil in their eyes.
So instead of preaching Christ, he preaches race. Black good, because White bad. This causes people to accept justification by the mere fact they are a certain skin tone and might encounter a hassle because of it. It departs from every individual knowing they themselves are depraved and need to have faith on Christ for forgiveness of sins.
So now he asserts any murder of a man is on a level with the sacrifice of Christ. This departs from scripture speaking of people being persecuted for the cause of Christ, to claiming persecution because of race is all like Christ, even if the person persecuted denied Christ.
Jesus was taking on the sins of the world. Sins of people in need of a savior, that are called to Him by His Father. It was not simply an act of accepting anyone’s suffering and treating anyone that is killed for whatever reason as if they are a sort of Christ. Jesus died because we are depraved and needed His blood to cover the sins of those who believe on Him, not merely because we kill each other, 1 John 1. If a person dies by lynching who does not have Christ, they go to the SAME HELL that the person lynching them goes do if they don’t repent, Acts 4:12.
See the prior bullet point above. What Cone speaks is NOT the gospel of the Lord Jesus.
Salvation by works with a plea for money! Now instead of a person not being responsible for their father’s sin, Cone has claimed Whites can’t find God unless they go through him and other Blacks. No one is responsible for another person’s sins, Ezekiel 18:20. And salvation comes via faith on Christ, not works, Romans 3:28.
OK, so some White person who only reads about slavery in history books needs to give something to Blacks? This is lunacy. If you see the bullet points above, this is clearly a false gospel. Christians forgive those who wronged them, Matthew 6:14-15.
Who is Cone to proclaim someone can’t be doing well and be elect of God? God really can elect who He wants to elect and with Him anyone might be granted repentance and salvation. Including the rich, Matthew 19:24-26. Unlike Cone, God really is no respecter of persons, Romans 2:11.
And here is where all cults prove themselves to be cults. They always must tinker with scripture in some way. Cone feels you can’t take scripture literally, so he props himself up as one you must listen to. False prophet and false teacher.
He’s not talking about a translation or copy of a manuscript, but asserting the initial writing of scripture was fallible. Departing from scripture being the SURE WORD preserved by the Holy Spirit, 2 Peter 1:16-21. This makes scripture something other than the Word of God, nothing but a trashy tainted work. Cone tramples the gospel.
And there goes the Baal cult statement! Basically he’s opening the door to all religions being on equal footing, a total Baal cult statement. The Holy Spirit helps believers come to know all truth as the Lord wills. Cone denies the statements of Christ, denies the Word of God, John 16:13 and 1 John 2:27. James Cone clearly follows another jesus.
They have to bear witness to the god they know.
Baal statement again. He’s thinking anything that enters the mind of man as God is acceptable and does not realize the depravity of man’s heart, Genesis 6:5. Satan poses as an angel of light and such evil resides in Cone’s false teaching, 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.
Nothing said about Jesus. For him the gospel is “justice”, not really Jesus. He uses Jesus as a means for earthly “justice”. He sees hope when people are resisting oppression inflicted on them. Feels White supremacy is a “little cross”. If you’ve been reading above, you see James Cone is not speaking the Gospel of the Lord Jesus at all.
From Harvard video:
Explains why he created an apostate heresy he teaches to others. He’s following the god of his own flesh.
So now even a thug in prison is Christ too in the eyes of James Cone.
He uses faith as a cover and then preaches his true gospel, which is nothing but a message of race. A gospel of and for the flesh.
Total and complete apostate heresy. Cone lauds not just people who die for things other than the cause of Christ as a form of Christ, but even people who suffer and outright denied the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Making those who deny the Lord his lord.
But they lie and claim they don’t teach Black superiority.
The money hook is always out.
More of the same holding people to blame for sins that God has declared they are not accountable for.
Why have Jesus as Lord, when you can have Him as your rapping entertainer on stage?
Cone only leverages facets of Christianity, because it is accepted here, not because he really feels Jesus is the only means to salvation, John 14:6. Cone makes up his own jesus in his fleshly mind as he goes along.
You name the Leftist movement and Cone will apply his heresy to it! All abominations included.
Cone’s is a false theology rooted in his own personal philosophy. If all of the above did not help you understand what is wrong with James Cone, Lord willing, 1 Corinthians 2 will help you better understand.
See this interview where James Cone even declares Christ denier and Muslim Malcolm X to be a 20th Century saint. (You’ll have to scroll down a bit to get to Cone’s portion of that show transcript.) More proof he does not see Christ as Lord and savior, but rather sees his favored works as salvation.
In a book written to try and have homosexuals accepted as something other than sinners in need of repentance in the ?African American Church? (book titled A Whosoever Church: Welcoming Lesbians and Gay Men Into African American Congregations), the writers interviewed Cone. Just see what he said at the bottom of page 209 in the book. He again mentions he does not take scripture literally and blames attitudes against the abomination of homosexuality on White people. And if you look at the back cover of the book, look who applauds the book, Jeremiah Wright!
What you’ve seen is the true core doctrine of the heresy, that was passed from from James Cone, to people like Jeremiah Wright, right down to Wright’s student Barack Hussein Obama, Junior and Trinity United Church of Christ’s new head pastor Otis Moss, III. If you listen to Obama’s speeches now after reviewing everything here, I think you’ll be able to identify Obama speaking the same heresy. It is very apparent when you are aware of how this false “Black Liberation Theology” doctrine works.
