Remembering the words of James Cone this week

James Calvin Davis

“In a revolutionary situation there can never be nonpartisan theology. Theology is always identified with a particular community. It is either identified with those who inflict oppression or with those who are its victims. A theology of the latter is authentic Christian theology, and a theology of the former is a theology of the Antichrist.”

James H. Cone in A Black Theology of Liberation
