This is not a post about race, or equality of race. This is a post about spirituality and the black race of which I have been privileged to be born into. Yes, Privileged to be born into and to have a succession of ancestors before me of whom I am proud. People of African descent are truly spiritual in a way no other can claim. Yet many of us have no idea, mainly because our minds are locked into the falsity and wickedness of  religion.

There is something deep within us that when it comes out can do powerful things. For years many of us have lost our way, and for some the struggle to get back or be who we were meant to be is not there because we have no idea who we really are.

Yesterday the post on Embracing Spirituality was on  saluting Queen of Kumina Sister Bernicey Henry who has now made her transition, and have gone to join her ancestors in the world of spirits. In the post the bloggers and I began to recount the rich heritage and culture which is a part of Jamaica. All of which came from Africa with us during Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, the horrible African Holocaust. For over 400 hundred years we were beaten, raped, sodomized, abused, starved, and more, but the worst thing that could have happened to us as Africans, stolen and brought to a foreign place was the enslavement of our minds through Christianity.

The same can be said for religions in general such as Islam also, but I will concentrate my efforts on Christianity today since I was born into it, or rather it was forced onto me, and I am familiar with its teachings, its Jesus, its role in the destruction of my people. Much can be said of other religions but we will save that for another post.

I was born in Kingston Jamaica, and I remember being told by my mother that If we, my sisters and I did not go to church we would not get our Sunday dinner. My mama was the best cook, so that threat was a serious one to us and off to Church we would go.

I remember a time, when my logical mind began to point things out to me, many things within the bible did not make sense, and then there was this very disturbing picture of the white archangel Michael spearing the cowering black devil with a sword. In my mind, through that picture, the suggestion to me was that all which is good is white and all which is evil or bad is black. A white Jesus and a Black devil, the very religion which black people supports denies them, mock them, look down on them, and this has been for over 400 hundred years, and still.

On my Altar I have a picture of my wonderful grandmother, posed on her veranda with her church hat on, although I love the Picture, the church hat offends me in a way I cannot describe. This was always not so, because there was a time when I, through indoctrination was deeply embedded in Christianity, never missing a Sunday from church. Pleading the blood and worshiping what looked like my oppressors. Christianity forced onto me by my very own parents, whom I trusted, and I also sent my children to church telling them that there is no other than Jesus. He is our redeemer. I did not mind that he was white or that was how he was represented, his looks, image or the painting of Cesare Borgia, because I had always seen him as such and although the bible described him as black, the fact is imagery projects reality, so that went out of one ears and out the next. The Image which had been etched into my mind from birth of Jesus was that he was white. Who was Cesare Borgia? A murder who had an incestuous affair with his sister, read about him here;

http://www.crimelibrary.com/serial_killers/history/borgias/3.html

 

White Jesus modeled on Cesare Borgia?<br /><br /><br /><br />
The theory is that people were generally not too enthusiastic about the Catholic Church’s regular massacres of Jews and Muslims, because the people they were killing looked like Jesus.  Pope Alexander VI then ordered the destruction of all art depicting a Semitic Jesus and commissioned a number of paintings depicting a Caucasian Jesus.  His son, Cardinal Cesare Borgia, was the model for these paintings.  Thus, the nastiest of all the Borgias, became the iconic Caucasian Jesus so loved by Christians today. <br /><br /><br /><br />
In 1995, GZA’s Liquid Swords album featured the solo track by Wu-Tang Clan affiliate, Killah Priest, ”B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth)”. The lyrics include the lines; "I even learnt Caucasians were really the Tribe of Edam, The white image, of Christ, is really Cesare Borgia”<br /><br /><br /><br />
The true image of Jesus was likely closer to this &amp; this.

Why would they choose such a man to be the face of the benevolent Jesus? Cesare Borgia did exist however, Jesus did not.

In Africa, while I am driving on the streets of Lagos, I see many paintings on the walls, of the white Jesus, white Angels, white little children playing with white Jesus and in the back ground a black devil which the white angel is battling, beating to a pulp. I am saddened by what I see daily, because the message is painted all over, feeding the minds of the younger ones to come, that they are less than who they are and that white is right and Black is not.

It was a brilliant idea by white people to do this. Use religion and fear of blaspheme to tame the minds of a set of savages (this is how they see us) to control us and to keep us down. Use their image of Lord, and Master, Savior and redeemer, It worked then and it continues to work now.

 

If only we really knew who we were/are! If only we would say one day “screw your Christianity and let me go back to the ways our ancestors worshiped their God. We are the only race who praise and worship a deity who does not look like us, the only race of people! Jamaicans will kill you for Jesus, a personality who did not even exist, at all, AT ALL!!. He was made up for this purpose.

 

How did a race of people, coming from the great continent of Africa, lose everything including themselves? Please read the Destruction of the Black Civilization by Chancellor Williams.

We are very strong people despite all that we have been through, and we have been through a whole lot. We should be aware of ourselves through the investigation of who our ancestors were, learn of where we are from, emancipate ourselves from mental slavery.

If all of you who are involved in Christianity, examine how you became apart of it, you will realize that it was forced upon you, like me, many of you were born into it. Children live what they learn. Here in Nigeria , a wife becomes what her husband is. If she marry and the husband is christian then more than likely she will have converted to this religion.

One such case is of my sister in law, who grew up around Orisha all her life, she had never heard of Jesus until she was twenty five years old and married a christian man, this was what took her to church. Now she is a staunch christian, so some of us conform to what is foreign for the sake of love.

The bible and the very fact that Jesus, the son of God is a blue eyes, blond haired white man (when revelation 1 13-15 clearly describe him as a black man) makes it ok and redeeming for whites to do to blacks as they feel. Enslave then, kill them, imprison them and more, because his face, and looks is Lord and Master and we have accepted it.

Please read this article;

Why Black People Love White Jesus

How long will it take for us to say enough, and try to find back our way?

How long will it take for us to wake up, instead of accepting what is placed before us as the truth, and holding our lives in one big black book filled with controversial and confusing information?

When will we love ourselves and our race, our skin color, our own people again?

They are killing us, and it is ok, are we apart of that problem?

Did we allow this by conforming to their ways and scriptures?

Are we a submissive race? When did we become that and how?

We were Kings and Queens from the beginning of time, now we have lost our crown, are our ancestors proud of us?

Turn the other cheek, really?

How much do we value ourselves as a race?

Do we care who we are, do we even know?

How is is possible that a white Jesus and a white God can be any better than the race they belong to which have oppressed us and still is doing so to this day, these that we black people worship, our oppressors, How?

Are we fools?

Is it possible that we will ever wake up?

If so when and how?

If I tell you to reject this white Jesus, how would you feel about me?

Would you hate me, want to fight me, cast me to hell?

Do you believe me when I say the devil do  not exist, nor hell not even a place called heaven?

Am I wrong to urge you to love your selves and wake up?

Do you not see that your mind is still enslaved, while you practice this false religion, don’t you see that you will never wake up but forced to accept all that will be done to you wrongly in Jesus name?

Why do you plead the blood of Jesus, but condemn me if I sacrifice a chicken?

Would Christianity be so popular if Jesus’s image was black?

Would the white man worship the image of a black Jesus?

Would Black people be respected more, it his image did not identify him with the mythical devil?

Will be able to ever see ourselves as royalty again?

If so when?

I understand the need to “Just want to Believe”, but we must awake to our truth and be free!

O ma se oooo!!

I was made to go service by my parent but they never attended. Smh i just got use to it n continued. Looking back all that tithing n offering n not one a mi rass questions ever get answer. Damn shame! I had plenty questions n parson naave nuh answer. I alwaus felt restricted like Toy n Mth stated. Its too many rules n nobody cant follow all that foolishness. I stayed repenting…feeling bad. But then i talked to God n said u know me, u

Im human so i make mistakes but pastor a preach hell n brimstone while him a throw wud pon people. Hypocrite! i listen well n pick sense outa nonesense to know when deacon pissed him off. Lol

Hey Kia! you on point…all those damn rules and yet the have NO godly reason for them but “because”. You can’t answer me with “because”…because it don’t mek no damn sense.

An example of when answers don’t mek sense:

My 3 year old nephew is a little above his age…like 40! lol. He was peppering his dad with questions while the dad was busy doing something. The baby said to his dad “…do you really understand what I’m asking?” He (my bro in law) said he stopped what he was doing, by then the baby was walking off and refuse to turn back. Why? he knew that the question shouldn’t have a readily available answer, so he knew is dad wasn’t paying attention. That little boy is a handful and may have asked to do something that he usually know is a NO….lolol

This post should be enlightening to those foreign to the concepts. Again, i am boastful because I NEVER/N.E.V.E.R (lol) accepted all that “jazz”. I went to Sunday school because I was prettied up and sent…when I got there I demanded the crayons and coloring books. If I don’t get it I was disruptive…so I end up getting to color or got to walk outside with a ‘big girl’.

Later on during service, I would give trouble until my grandparents caught me and put me to sleep on a sweater and from there on I always rejected Chrisitians and their nonsense. I thank the spirits that I wasn’t easy to corrupt due to their presence and that I don’t come from a klan of religious zealots.

I was just reading an excerpt from a book about Jamaica during slavery and in the 1800s the author observed,
” It is and ever has been very difficult to extract from an old Negro what his religious belief really was, but it seems probable that there was some idea that departed parents had influence with the supposed rulers of the world beyond the grave, and that prayers were offered to them in some such spirit as that of the Roman Catholic who appeals to the saints in is calendar ”
We lost all of that with time

Teacher, something has been on my mind from about last week or the week before, I think now is a good time to ask you…

Cami posted something about Bill Cosby and his ‘troubles’. Now Bill Cosby was the pargon of virtue of all that is ‘good’ and noble. Now we are seeing all these ‘allegations’. Now there must be some thruth to what is being said about him.

My question/thought is, it is good to have role models, but where does one draws the line, in liking/emulating someone. Bill Cosby was the trophy dad, but he as it is now playing out was a monster.

Secondly, I take for all this, that while he was doing what he was doing, the Universe would untimately pay him for his deeds.They was no way he could have done all this bad and it not come back to haunt. Yet, how this started was him inviting people to create a meme about him and he all supplied the pictures…So much to learn and be awake to. Somehow mentioning Pastors and their double lives made me think of BIll and his nastiness (yet to be proven)…

I heard it being said that he shouldnt have married her. Shortly after he married, he got the stroke and never recovered. They tell you about ‘based on your faith’. I am sure the entire church prayed for Pastor Keene and he didnt get better. I had no bad thoughts about Pastor Keene.

Him have a b*&%h of a sister (me read she from me about 18) and he was dying to see her on his visit. I told him that may not happen…he laughed. Well so say it, so it was….2 weeks and she never showed up and only live 15 minutes away. She parades like she and dem jesus a one, but in truth she is a devil like countless other religious folks.

Before I would not call out people, but I called out Joel Osteen before. Earlier this year his church was broken into and donations to the tune of $600k were stolen…Are you kidding me? Recently, I think it was Cami who posted about the Chiney man who built apartment complexes for people he grew up with.

I do not think Joel alone can end world poverty, but I have not seen or heard of him doing nothing for charity. The Preachers of LA sick my stomach. I cannot watch that filth. Again, I do not belive that “christians’ should live like dogs, but the opulence of some of these people while their congregation is starving is appaling.

You go to Pastor as you are ‘on your face’, Pastor tells you to sow a seed and money will come. Trust God and see and no matter how you give, they will dig out your eyes for more. I have been to church and they talk about building fund love offering, visiting pastor envelope went around for the night mussi 5 if not more ‘special offering’ were collected.

The thing I HATE most about christianity is this, if you want something and you pray and do not get it, they tell you your faith is weak. In church I got it/picked it up that if you have things you are favoured/God loves and blesses you. Then if you do not have things, then it means you are cursed…

I love this Pastor, Henry Fernandez, he would have meetings at the Peagus Hotel back in 2000 (or around that time). When I would go, it was not the hell and brimstone preaching. He would talk about prosperity. Now, I do not remember if he was Adventist, Pentecostal or warrra, however I remember him for the hope that he spoke about and it was what my soul needed at the time.

Afternoon Lady Toy, all is well?

For me, the think with Christianity that gets me all the time is this:

God is a spirit and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Yet when you speak about spirit worse if you say you see a spirit, then you are wickied/evil horse dead and cow fat…

You go to church and want an answer about some decision you are about to take…They tell you that no one knows the future and the will of God. Yet the Bible tells you over and over again men going to war etc and consult before embarking on their journeys.
