Abstrak

Artikel ini mengeksplorasi tulisan dan kesarjanaan terkait teologi perjuangan (theology of struggle) yang dikembangkan oleh umat Protestan dan Katolik di Filipina pada tahun 1970-an hingga 1990-an. Fokus yang diambil adalah tulisan-tulisan populer—seperti pamflet, sumber-sumber liturgis, buletin, majalah, artikel koran, catatan-catatan konferensi, lagu-lagu, modul-modul semiloka, dan rekaman pidato-pidato—maupun juga argumentasi-argumentasi sarjana yang mengartikulasi komponen-komponen biblis, teologis, dan etis dari teologi perjuangan sebagaimana dipahami oleh umat Kristen yang terlibat di dalam gerakan-gerakan massa di Filipina yang berjuang untuk kemerdekaan dan demokrasi. Materi-materi ini diproduksi oleh umat Kristen yang terlibat langsung dalam perjuangan sehari-hari rakyat miskin. Pada saat yang sama, teologi perjuangan juga memproyeksikan sebuah visi “sakramental” dan komitmen kolektif terhadap sebuah tatanan sosial baru di mana rakyat yang menderita akan mendapat keadilan eskatologis dan proleptis—langit dan bumi yang baru, di mana hal-hal terdahulu telah berlalu dan ciptaan baru telah tiba. Di dalam perjuangan melawan ketidakadilan, spiritualitas menjadi sebuah “sakramen”—sebuah titik dan tempat dalam sejarah di mana Allah dapat dijumpai dan di mana kasih penebusan dan rahmat Allah bagi dunia dapat dialami.
