There is nothing wrong with coming to the aid of the poor. God commands that. The problem with Liberation Theology is that it focuses only on the liberation of the poor from their socioeconomic condition. It tends to ignore the need for spiritual liberation from sin and death.
Our treatment of the poor does reflect something about our character:

Proverbs 22:9, 22
Proverbs 31:9, 20
1 Timothy 6:17-18
1 John 3:17-18
