God of the Oppressed

The scandal is that the gospel means liberation, that this liberation comes to the poor, and that it gives them the strength and the courage to break the conditions of servitude. This is what the Incarnation means. God in Christ comes to the weak and the helpless, and becomes one with them, taking their condition of oppression as his own and thus transforming their slave-existence into a liberated existence. — James Cone, God of the Oppressed 

My goal this year is to read theology from different angles. With February being Black History Month, I’m reading black theologians. My goal is to read from women theologians as well. I have been highly influenced by Asian theologians in the past.

It’s a process of learning for me.
