Abstract:

Dia Mari-Jata claims his confessional sermons can move the congregation of the Nu African House of God in Christ to speak truth to power about economic injustices against the working-poor. Mari-Jata wants the congregation to challenge the institutional powers-that-be to give the working-poor a living wage instead of the minimum wage. A living wage approximates God's justice for the poor. Mari-Jata claims that confessional preaching is the appropriate homiletic form of discourse to meet this economic crisis in the world. He defines confessional preaching as Christological prophetic/apologetic public discourse. It sets the shibboleth Jesus is Lord against the claim of absolute authority by the powers over the lives of others. This idolatrous claim by various economic powers, in government and business, is the root cause for the promotion of economic injustices against the working-poor. Mari-Jata claims that Jesus Christ is the moral agency and authority that can reverse this injustice situation through confessional preaching.
