Abstract

This article constructs political theology for Pentecostals in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country like Indonesia that can become a basis for their spirituality engaging in public affairs. The study is conducted on Isa. 42.1–9 according to Vernon K. Robbins’ socio-rhetoric criticism method. The results of the study show that the servant, who was anointed by the Spirit of God, became an agent to carry out the mission of liberation for all humankind from social injustice and of striving for social transformation as well. His work was ultimately regarded as God’s superiority over idols, therefore bringing praise to God. The Spirit encourages people of the Spirit to always work on missions, liberating from social injustice and transforming social structure. Any work produced could be considered as a participation in the Spirit’s inspirational work, and doxology is a way of discerning the Spirit’s work.
