For quite some time I have been baffled by the devotion of the black church. I understand the sense of community and unity, but…
Using deception is nothing new to religion. Tampering with the words and chapters of the Bible, even in their own book is grounds for a trip to hell (another neat invention).
“A new exhibit at a Washington, D.C., museum featuring an abridged version of the Bible sheds light on how Christian missionaries converted enslaved Africans to Christianity by teaching them the Gospel… except the parts about freedom, equality and resistance”.
Today’s Christians do the same. Cherry pick a few feel good parts and bear testimony, manipulate emotion and herd instincts, declaring any positive emotion god-sent, while leaving out the ugly. Like I said before, compile the relevant parts of the Bible and you could produce it in a pamphlet.
It amazes me how an oppressed people can celebrate the rule of their past and present. Why there is one Black Christian on the planet strikes incredulity and head scratching. A host on another blog, Harry, told me one reason; it was a black man that carried jesus’ cross—another propaganda—Cyrenes were Jews and Greek) Welcome to the faith! The next life will make it all worth the prison sentence your mind has endured. Once the culture and language and history was destroyed, they are now set to assist the mental oppression through faith.
The church will use any omission, wordbending, or outright lie to convert, coverup, or enslave any person. Thank humans for secular humanism to fight this nonsense.
We’ve seen the tradition continue today. There is nothing the apologists won’t hide or deflect or defend to bring one to Jesus. From the point of a sword to deleting points in the word, no deception is out of bounds—for Christ sake!
