Example text

One protection is found in the critical work, the different hermeneutical tools that have been forged in biblical studies, to which we shall refer later. (3) How do we understand the poor? I have already mentioned Gutierrez’ reference to the understanding of poverty and the poor in structural terms as a social class. It reflects the beginnings of Liberation Theology and it remains a fundamental consideration which has to be constantly actualised as economic and social conditions change in the continent.

The enlightened democracies of the liberal project were unable to respond. Some nationalist groups tried populist answers, sometimes stimulated by the initial successes of fascism in Europe. But the attempt to launch an independent national development was already impossible: the USA control of Latin American economy was too great and, when it failed, particularly in Central American and Caribbean countries, the US marines were ready to intervene. The Second World War provided a certain breathing space but, after the war, when the new economic order with its institutions – the Bretton Woods system, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, GATT and later the GC – was in place, there was no more room for autonomous nationalist adventures.

At this point I will only refer to the theological directions in the more classical Pentecostalism. The first thing that has to be said is that, although there is a great variety, both in terms of the Pentecostal churches that came from abroad, as in those that have emerged in Latin America, we can say that the fundamental Pentecostal ‘reading’ of their common evangelical tradition is, on the whole, almost the same, namely: (a) salvation by the grace of God and through the vicarious sacrifice of Jesus Christ received by faith: here the personal experience of this salvation is the central emphasis; (b) the baptism of/in the Holy Spirit, interpreted as a second experience and related to sanctification: there are differences concerning the importance of the gift of tongues as sealing the baptism and as to whether we should receive immediate or progressive sanctification; but in any case it means empowerment as a promise to all believers, generally received in the community of faith, with prayer and laying on of hands; (c) an apocalyptic eschatology, almost always premillenarian, defined as resurrection, second coming, millennial kingdom, final judgement and the hope for the eternal Kingdom.
