Christianity

 

 

  

 

Christianity (from the Ancient Greek word Χριστός, Khristos, "Christ", literally "anointed one") is a monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus as presented in canonical gospels and other New Testament writings. Adherents of the Christian faith are known as Christians.

Christianity teaches that Jesus is the Son of God, God having become human and the savior of humanity. Because of this, Christians commonly refer to Jesus as Christ or Messiah. The three largest groups in the world of Christianity are the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox churches, and the various churches of Protestantism. The Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox patriarchates split from one another in the East-West Schism of 1054 AD, and Protestantism came into existence during the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, splitting from the Roman Catholic Church.

The word Christianity is the label that has been widely accepted by the secular and church-world to describe the practice of faith by the followers or disciples of Jesus Christ.

Christianity began as a Jewish sect in the mid-1st century. Originating in the eastern Mediterranean coast of the Middle East (modern Israel and Palestine), it quickly spread to Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor and Egypt, it grew in size and influence over a few decades, and by the 4th century had become the dominant religion within the Roman Empire. During the Middle Ages, most of the remainder of Europe was Christianized, with Christians also being a sometimes large religious minority in the Middle East, North Africa, Ethiopia and parts of India. Following the Age of Discovery, through missionary work and colonization, Christianity spread to the Americas, Australasia, sub Saharan Africa and the rest of the world.

Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, referred to as the "Old Testament" in Christianity. The foundation of Christian theology is expressed in the early Christian ecumenical creeds, which contain claims predominantly accepted by followers of the Christian faith. These professions state that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, and was resurrected from the dead to open heaven to those who believe in him and trust him for the remission of their sins (salvation). They further maintain that Jesus bodily ascended into heaven where he rules and reigns with God the Father. Most denominations teach that Jesus will return to judge all humans, living and dead, and grant eternal life to his followers. He is considered the model of a virtuous life, and both the revealer and physical incarnation of God. Christians call the message of Jesus Christ the Gospel ("good news") and hence refer to the earliest written accounts of his ministry as gospels.

As of the early 21st century, Christianity has around 2.2 billion adherents. Christianity represents about a quarter to a third of the world's population and is the world's largest religion.

Although we are few, some of us know our ancestors. Some of us know our tribes and countries of origin. Some us have lived in the land of our ancestors. Some of us have not only known our parents and grandparents but our great and great great grandparents. Some of us are of royal lineage and had divine teachers. Although we are few, some of us have been to the mountain top.

Ancestors!!!

By Chief Elder Osiris

There Is Much More Where This Come From.
o_akkebala2002@yahoo.com

Keep Sharing The Divine Truth And Maybe, Just Maybe Somebody Black Might Hear You.


I am only influenced by the Divine Truth and I strive every day to move myself from being a victim of somebody else mind thought about those things that I can as well use my mind to reach a thought of knowing about the events and experiences my life is and has been connected to.

Now, let us get to know what Ancestor represent to imply, which is life living connection to life no longer living, of which you carry a Genetic domestically as well as Cosmically connection with.

In other word, Ancestors imply someone you are genetically related to that has died, which mean is no longer here in life living form as you the living form is in full activity of life.

To a living body, to die mean that body is no longer mobile in living form and is without the Energy soul that give the body form, life, and life is action portrayed by the body sensual and mental activity, which verify the life living of the body form.

So our Ancestors are those Genetic relatives that is no longer present in life living form, which give cause for you to Rationally conclude that, Ancestors are those relatives that no longer live and has become a verification of what we refer to as death to physical form, and death indicate those who have died.

Black people have become so victimized by religious belief in term of God and Life, to the point that we have forsaken our ability to know through reasonable thought all that is relative to us, and is Divinely True.

Our Afrikan ancestors are not always consistent in mental culture behavior, meaning the Spirit revealed by our Ancestors vary in accordance to the dispensation of their living time on this planet and I will keep them confined to this planet living time, in order to give you a clear vision of reference as to those I refer to as our Afrikan Ancestors, but know that our Divine Ancestors extend beyond this Earthly dispensation of time of their life living form.

So, it is not wise to give off the implication of notion that Ancestry has no reason to discriminate when referring to our Afrikan Ancestors, because within each window of Time of our life living, life culture, sensuality, perception, and concept that reveal our spirit, vary and changes, meaning that our Ancestors life living and thought pattern are not consistent in each changing of window of dispensation of time, therefore there should be a thoughtful effort to distinguish between those Ancestors that have moved on from this dimension of life living form of which we have a genetic connection with, in our present life living form.

Ancestors represent not present in life living form and to die represent not being present in life living form, so our Afrikan Ancestors are those who have died and not now live.

Now, by us making claim that we keep our ancestors alive in our Mind, does not almost mean that our ancestors are experiencing such an imaginary life living fantasy.

The Dead Is Not active In Mental Activity.

So to make claim that our Ancestors live within us, is to imply that they live in and through our imagination of them, and their imaginary life extend no further in time of their once living form than that you can imagine them to have lived.

So, most Time our Afrikan Ancestors are brought to life in our imagination, based upon flawed information about and of them, making it to be a mockery of our Ancestors when we allow ourselves to be influenced to believe about our ancestors as has been portrayed by some other mind than our own Divine Mind.
Comment by Universal Divine Being Isis on July 31, 2011 at 1:43am

 

Continued


Our Divine First way ancestors are those who came to this planet with the quantum knowledge about the Divine essence, the universe, and about life living form, the self of being, and their culture, spirituality, and their mentality was without flaw in the window of Time of their presence upon this planet, but as Time continued to bring different window of time and in each window there appeared a different ethic of mentality of ancestors, so much so, until there came to be ancestors unrecognizable in comparison to our Divine First Way Ancestors.

So, there are differences in classification and categorizing of our Ancient Afrikan Ancestors, and the further you get from the primary Afrikan Ancestors the further you lose identity of and with the knowledge of your Divine Black self.

Religion has warped the mind of Black folks to the point that we no longer know of our different quality of Ancestors, so that we may identify with our original Ancient Afrikan Ancestors, they who needed no religion to believe in, because they carried the Quantum knowledge that caused them to know their relationship to the Divine Essence and to the universe.

Hope, Faith, Belief/Believe/Praying...and the likes of, all a evil psychological mental warfare DOPE to keep people living in their lowest profane life dimension : A Maturing missive.

How do we know a person?

By the quality of their mind thoughts, conduct, behavior and actions.

We Are What We THINK.

Osho: Anybody who gives you a belief system is your enemy

http://dedroidify.blogspot.com/2008/01/in-2008-destroy-your-ego-bel...

"Anybody who gives you a belief system is your enemy, because the belief system becomes the barrier for your eyes: you cannot see the truth. The very desire to find the truth disappears. But if all your belief systems are taken away from you, in the beginning certainly, it is bitter. I know the fear, the anxiety, that will surface immediately which you have been suppressing for millenia. But it is there, very alive, no God can destroy it. Only the search for truth and the experience of truth, NOT a belief is capable to heal all your wounds. To make you a whole being, and the whole person is the holy person to me."Osho

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Belief: Belief is something fixed, static, stagnant, frozen-a conclusion we have reached (albeit not on our own). Once we believe something, we shut the door to everything outside of, or opposed to, that belief and stop inquiring or questioning. (Dr. Blynd, Funktionary) . To get a copy of Funktionary, contact Dr. Blynd at: DocBlind@aol.com


Faith:  Borrowed belief in spite of the facts. 2) denial of epistemological principles. 3) the product-result when all reason leads to absurdity. (Religious faith cannot be positively achieved--only doubts destroyed, because faith comes negatively and happens when there is no reasoning). (Dr. Blynd, Funktionary)

Quote: "Faith is making a virtue out of not thinking." - Bill Maher (creator of the movie "Religulous")

Mark Twain said it best - "Faith is believing something you know ain't true!"

Blind Faith

BLIND means the inability to see or perceive a thing, thought or principle. FAITH is believing without proof, trusting without tangible assurance. Blind Faith Mind Control Systems have demonstrated the willingness of the masses to assist in their own abuse and subjugation by well-trained Charlatans and Religious God-Sellers. Blind Faith and Ignorance as Social Engineering and Caste System Controls is vital to any Tyrannical Slave-State. This necessitates the institutionalization of naïve thinking in the minds of the people.-
 

One of the commonly used clichés to inspire the BLIND FAITH masses to unjust wars, self-destructive activities and unfair abuses of others is: DO IT FOR GOD AND COUNTRY. The word GOD symbolizes the Divine Creator for the masses. The word COUNTRY symbolizes the SOVEREIGN STATE for the masses. The truth is that the masses have never been told the truth of what qualifies the word GOD or the political process and qualification for a SOVEREIGN STATE or its limit of authority. Neither the CHURCH or the STATE is true to what they profess or what the masses believe or perceive them to be. This is called BLIND FAITH.

HOPE: “Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torment of man”.
Comment by Universal Divine Being Isis on July 30, 2011 at 4:38pm

HOPE: Is a meaningless emotion because its fruits are always in the future and, by definition, never in the NOW.(David Icke)

 

HOPE : Is like riding a carousel horse; no matter how fast you go you never get closer to the one in front. The idea, however, is to persuade you to stay on the horse, despite the evitable disappointment, in the 'hope' that things will change. But they don't because the very system is designed to prevent it.(David Icke)

 

 

PRAY:

Petitioned Response Answer Yes

When you pray to a personified God it is an infantile need to feel that a father figure will make everything safe and secure. The reality is otherwise; reality is no respecter of truth. Truth is your subjective and distorted experience and description of reality. Petitioning to an imagined personalized or personified God only confirms one's arrested spiritual development perpetrated on you by priests of all stripes of all religions who have invented personified Omnipotent Gods. Whatever "God" or personalized  deity that you happen to pray to is an apparition, a projection of your own imagination within your differentiated conscious. it is we as humans who are the unfolding aspect of God in its ineluctable and inimitable desire to become aware of and experience itself. Prayer for the spiritually mature is in the form of meditation or mystical concentration, until even meditation itself no longer is needed after experiencing Self -Realization or undergoing Suddenlightenment.

"Critical thinking skills allow people to become aware of hierarchal levels of thought, which gives them the capacity to assume greater control over their lives. The three essential levels of cognitive thought are:

 

The Literal: where one learns to accept all information at face value and never looks beneath the surface for additional details.

 

 

The Inferential: where one learns to infer or "read between the lines," and sees the hidden or dual meaning in information that is presented.

 

 

The Evaluative: where one learns to make an intelligent decision based upon the comparison of various sources of information, particularly those drawn from one's own per­sonal experiences.

 

 

The objective of critical thinking is to learn how not to take all information literally, to read between the lines for deeper understanding and then evaluate that information by compar­ing it with other sources of knowledge. This process expands one's mind and opens up new vistas for learning. It is the means by which one may be resurrected from mental death and experience a profound rebirth of consciousness."

Comment by Dana Manno on July 30, 2011 at 12:25pm
Dear Brother Lydell, Now that's what I'm talking about. I want to thank you for being responsive to my concerns. Thank you, thank you, thank you. @UDBI - There is a familiar quote of Harriet Tubman, "I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves." Once the mind is enslaved, the slavers task becomes an easy one. This applies to enslavement through religion, or emotion or economics. Sadly, most organized religion has taken advantage of their followers. Faith and spirituality goes beyond religion. The designation of religious sects has been used to divide and control entire societies. It is difficult if not impossible to identify a religion that actually works without controlling or oppressing it's members. The same applies to political systems. Capitalism without ethics leads to the abuse and greed we are experiencing right now in America. On the other end of the spectrum, Communism without rewards leads to apathy. Every day we read of people who call themselves "religious" while at the same time they are oppressing others like the pedophiles in the priesthood and hasidic sects or committing acts of terror as we saw recently in Norway. However, don't throw out the baby with the bath water. There are people of faith that are real just as there are societies that actually care about their people. You seem to have made a sincere yet unsuccessful quest. Don't give up on people or on faith. Look, for example, at the tiny nation of Bhutan. Instead of measuring their GNP, they measure their GHQ. Bhutan's Gross Happiness Quotient actually considers the happiness of their citizens. Political leaders with unhappy people in their districts are deposed. This, of course is rare, but it does exist. Each person's relationship with God is personal. Organized and/or institutional religion is good for social interaction. In today's harried world, the time together on the sabbath is the only time some communities get to interact, or socialize with like-minded neighbors. Houses of worship are good places for young people to meet their future partners or spouses without having to go to "the club" or a bar. One can network for business or pleasure and seniors can socialize and remain useful. I truly appreciate your words, but I know too that there is a power so great that it cannot be contained by some denomination created by man. We are each part of that universal spark. As God said to Moses, when someone asks for the name of God, you are to respond, "I Am".

How The "God" Game Works 

How The “God” Game Works

Those in power have always used religion as a transport system into the psychology of the people. Here is a very brief explanation of how the conquerors of the world used and continue to use religion to maintain dominance over the masses.

 

The conquerors of various cultures ultimately become the providers of resources to those cultures which overtime will appear as a “naturally superior” group over a “naturally inferior” group. Once this perception is established, it becomes easier for the conqueror to convince the conquered that their position has been divinely arranged and part of an omniscient plan. The conquered people on the bottom, in reality, have no fair way of reaching the top and are now at the mercy of those on the top to provide them with a liberating belief system, of which those on the top pretend to have experienced.

 

The dream of the conquered to be in the position of their conquerors becomes so great that the conquerors must provide a way to make their dreams come true without actually changing their collective position. This is achieved by creating the illusion that they can make it to the top. There are many ways this is done but the most efficient way of accomplishing this illusion is by creating a theology that offers the people on the bottom a way to get to the top (heaven)---virtually.

 

A monotheistic belief system is created and at its essence, is a loving, kind and all-inclusive savior that allows an opportunity for the conquerors to be forgiven for their transgressions. The conqueror’s diabolical acts of enslaving, subjugating and decimating various cultures are willingly expunged by the conquered through the act of forgiveness. The conquered passively become bound, tied or fastened (Latin description of the derivation of the word religion/religare) to “god” and worship instead of freedom and liberation. Individual and personal relationships with provided deities take precedence over group goals and agendas, which is what constitutes a culture in the first place. The conquered pathologically rationalize their privation with the hope and faith that one day their predicament will change and they will ultimately be escorted to a place where unconditional love, wealth and peace abound.

Religious belief and imperialistic agendas go hand-in-hand. In order to break the cycle of ecclesiastical enslavement, one must be willing to challenge the status quo, particularly in areas pertaining to psychological bondage. As long as religion exists, there will be fear, powerlessness, dependency, separatism, imperialism and delusion. Until we (the conquered) understand how we arrived at where we are in terms of our beliefs and how our beliefs perpetuate social impotence, we will continue to be the bottom-feeders of the world. There is no divine plan behind the equation of conqueror over conquered. The meek have not inherited anything and the last have not finished first. It is only by recognizing that real liberation comes from knowing the conqueror’s motives and strategies. Conquerors need victims and bible believing, “god”-fearing, church loving people are just the prey that keeps them in power. Religion must die so that we may live.

Brother Lydell, I understand for people of faith, the message of Christ is the most important. However, my concerns of image are vitally important in an age when little children of color are still picking out "the white doll" as being better, smarter etc. My mother always says that the only thing that has changed with humans is the date. Just as in the case of Shakespeare, when you have someone that was as well known as Jesus (or Shakespeare) and there are no true images of that person, there is a deliberate reason for that. There is a passage in the Bible where Christ says that his skin is like burnt copper and his hair like wool. Yes, I know that in Asia there are pictures that depict Christ as Asian. Everyone adjusts the image of Christ. I love the message of Ghandi too, and as a young woman I had quite the crush on Ghandi after reading his autobiography. However, even though I still value Ghandi's message, my "romantic" feeling were tempered when I learned about Ghandi's feelings towards blacks. I will not go into that too deeply other than to say, much like many Indians today, only the date has changed. I have lived in Algeria and Morocco and traveled extensively in that part of the world. In all coastal areas, people are more racially mixed because they are exposed to other races due to commerce and foreign travelers. However, just like in the Latin world, there are many very dark skinned people. We just don't see them on the news. Just like when we see pictures of Africa, they only show photos of people in the bush. Right now in America, there are people ready to destroy the nation because they are so obsessed with the race of our President. During a class, one of my students broke down in tears when he related a story to me about his father making his younger brother stay with a neighbor during a business meeting because the younger brother was very dark and his father thought the younger son's darker hue would affect the outcome of the business deal. You have people the color of coal writing that they are "white" on official documents. This "image" issue is a serious problem that has real consequences. The racial issue is particularly prominent among "Christians". We all know that Sunday mornings have been dubbed "the most segregated hour" in the world. The recent killings in Norway were done by a "so called" Christian. Most of the racial crimes in the US are committed by people calling themselves Christians. Christ's message was one of love. Let's start by loving ourselves and who we are. If we were living in a racially just world (and this is a worldwide problem) I would not care. Again, I repeat the words of my grandmother, "How can they pray to a black man on Sunday and then go out and beat him up on Monday?" I have seen burnt copper. Let's start there. Peace and love to you brother Lydell.
Comment by Lydell Jackson on July 27, 2011 at 10:49pm

Every "Christian" culture has it's own version of images that represent Jesus Christ. Artists and Historians around the world have conjoured up many variations for the world of humanity to connect our souls to. No matter where we find ourselves there will be a place for the worship of "The Christ". There are no real records of what "Christ" race or appearance actually was. Since he was from Nazareth, his apperance was most likely what today is refered to as middle eastern. This could be and range of hues from very light to very dark in complextion. There has been much written on the subject and I encourage much research if this is a concern. For me any representation is an inacurate guess at best. Since none of us were there in the first, second and third centuries of the common era when it is said "Christ" walked among humanity, and much of the biblical and historical material has been adjusted for socio-political advantages we will not be able to speak conclusively on the matter of what is the most fitting respresentation today. That is not a real concern to me.

What is more important are the words of spiritual encouragement that are attributed to the voice of "Christ." His messages of human compassion, loving-kindness, generosity, honor and repect for all humanity are the hallmarks of "Christian Faith" that are so often neglected by too many of his followers today. Gandi said "If Christians would just follow the teachings of Christ the world would be a better place.

Dear UDBI: First let me say, don't get things twisted. I totally respect and admire brother Lydell. He has elevated us all simply by creating this site, never mind the many layers, including this one. Yes, I have checked out the "Spitiuality2" page and watched all of the videos posted there. I was prompted to contribute here because of the blond haired images on this page which I would love replaced with more accurate images ( http://www.mindspring.com/~holyimages/id10.html ). I am not very tech savvy, or I would upload the images here myself. Those early Christians in Ethiopia were not forced or oppressed. I will say that many troubled religious fanatics were and are sons and daughters of Abraham. Abraham himself was ready to sacrifice his own son before the intercession of the angels. Abraham and all of the Hebrews that came after him were African people. As Malcolm said "they are neither in the middle or the east". It stands to reason that his descendants which include Solomon, David, Moses and Jesus were also men of color. When Makeda, Queen of Sheba gave birth to Menelik, his father, Solomon sent the Arch to the land of Sheba for safe keeping where it remains today. Fast forward to the days of Herod, John the Baptist and Jesus of Nazareth we have African people being oppressed by the Romans in their own land. Sadly, as stated by brother Wes, many people pray to Jesus instead of dealing directly with God or the One or Allah. As you stated  so clearly, "you don't know what you don't know" and you don't know me. You seem to mean well, but taking things out of context to respond is very patronizing. I have lived in over 36 countries, studying and experiencing their cultures and religions. I have twice had what some refer to as "near death experiences". The Bahi show a great deal of insight when they say there is "One Light with many lanterns". The word "catholic" means "universal", but that has nothing to do with the international institution known as the Catholic Church. That institution has perpetuated many crimes around the planet since it's inception. Just like the slaver who wrote "Amazing Grace", Pope John Paul II had a less than blameless life in his early years in the church but did try to atone for his sins before his death. I too love the African part of my humanity, however, I have been to the mountain top and I know that we are all more than the pigment of our skin. All of humanity springs from African soil - we are all Africans. Our differences today are cultural and political. While we exist in a material world, even the thinnest piece of paper has two sides. We can get beyond the material when we deal with the truth. I bring up color only because in this particular society, the color of one's skin still affects the way people are treated. To that end, I remember the words of my grandmother. She explained the conscious decision to change the images of Jesus of Nazareth from his authentic black image to the blond haired, blue-eyed images still prominently displayed in so many "christian" houses of worship. As she said, "They found it hard to pray to a black man on Sunday and go out and murder black men on Monday." Displaying the true image of Jesus in churches around the world (especially in Africa where Christians are far more enthralled than any other place on earth) would change behavior towards African people everywhere. African people would have a new feeling of self worth and "non-Africans" might discover a new found respect for their own African heritage. After all, little children of color world wide, are still picking "the white doll" to play with when given a choice. There needs to be a truth healing. That truth that the original flower children, the promoters of peace and love philosophy, the first Christians were black people. Any educated person knows that our differences in appearance has more to do with the affect of geography on our biology. As you said, "you don't know what you don't know". As

Amazing Grace:
The Story of John Newton

http://www.anointedlinks.com/amazing_grace.html

Although he had had some early religious instruction from his mother, who had died when he was a child, he had long since given up any religious convictions. However, on a homeward voyage, while he was attempting to steer the ship through a violent storm, he experienced what he was to refer to later as his “great deliverance.” He recorded in his journal that when all seemed lost and the ship would surely sink, he exclaimed, “Lord, have mercy upon us.” Later in his cabin he reflected on what he had said and began to believe that God had addressed him through the storm and that grace had begun to work for him.

Amazing Grace Lyrics

John Newton (1725-1807)
Stanza 6 anon.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch
like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.


Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Again, everything has to do with the state of mine, be your life facing danger or be it an interaction experiencing prosperity.

 

Religion is a part of the world psychic, even when those who make claim not to be religious and has no other thought to replace it with concerning God and life.

 

Events happen and the energy of mind can and does has an interaction with nature.

So when you have been taught to be a believer and religion take over your life, then

to the religious follower prayer and exclaimed request in that religious god name

and things change from the way you had believed it would not, then religion get the

credit and not the action of your thoughts during the occasion that caused the event.

 

Religion have you to self-debase yourself, look upon yourself as being unworthy and being of no self value, without having knowledge of self but a belief in a religious god.

 

Thus you have the writing of Amazing Grace.

This dialogue maybe the first and last dialogue and the videos/articles I post will serve as my dialogue. 

 

I had to dialogue with you precious Dana, because of you comments to our Humble Beloved Bro Star Lydell. 

 

Precious Dana, I will not debate lies and deception, just reveal lies and deception. For me to debate over and over again and again will only serve the Profane (Ego) within us, and those reading the dialogue will not know who is who, and they may not learn if there is debating going on. Again, I do not intend to debate, just relate/reveal. I come. I share. One accepts or reject. I keep moving on. 

 

Beloved Dana, this is what I have learned my Divine Spiritual Journey, by practicing Free Critical Thinking, lien holder of my own conscious and non conformist to evil concepts and ideas. I know what I know. I do not know what I do not know. I (believe) nothing. I AM still learning. EXPERIENCE is the Master teacher. I have practiced/studied many religions. I practiced/studied Black Israelites in Brooklyn New York. Later I inner tain/entertain practicing/studying Jehovah Witness (JW) and I quickly learned that ( JW) was no difference from Christianity. Then I practiced/studied Baptist Christianity. Then I practiced/studied, NON Denomination Christianity. Then I entertained the thought of Yourba and  Bahi religion.   The Catholic Religion, I never inner tain/entertain participating in when I learned that all the major religions falls under the Umbrella of the Catholic religion. The last one I practiced/studied was SIUNNI Muslim.

ISIS: Christianity is part of our PROFANE heritage that was forced upon our people by the human being Only oppressors, human being (black Law Dictionary defines as (Monster/Beast.) Before Christianity there was Divine Spirituality among our people, when our people lived in Harmony, Order, and Balance before evil came along.

ISIS: If the Afrika Continent was the first to be evilly mentally lobotomized, then the statement AFRICANS WERE THE FIRST CHRISTIANS is true, but not by choice. Our people were FORCE against their will, causing them to lose their Divine Spirituality way of thinking and living.

Beloved Dana wrote: We are always letting other people and institutions co-opt our history and our culture.

--------------------------

ISIS: That is true. Now there are two Histories. Evil man made History and our once Divine true Spiritual History before evil men History. Beloved Dana, will you share with us our people Divine Original History before evil men profane history about our people, and thank you precious One for doing so. Our True Divine History is embedded deep, deep, deep within the Psyche DNA Soul Mind in the Black Afrikan Beings (both genders).  

----------------------------------------

Beloved Dana wrote: I see from your posts that you seem to be referring more to blacks that have let themselves be oppressed by Christian philosophy.

--------------------

ISIS: Beloved Dana, it is our people we must focus on and teach them what is and what is not. Our concerns and interest should be our people. We must get ourselves Divinely correct. We aren't be concerned about others until we are Divinely correct. When our people return back to their once Divine Original mind-set, we will be the Divine Saviors for our people and the whole world, because if our people were operating in our once Divine right mind-set, the whole world will have something to emulate and that id Divine Harmony, Order, and Balance. It is the Black Afrikan females that are holding up our people Divine Salvation, Liberation and freedom. That maybe hard to swallow but it is true. The Black Afrikan females were the first one to be mentally destroyed, no thanks to the POPES, so that she would be used to destroy the Black Afrikan family kingdom. The evil oppressors made it so that the Black Afrikan males Rocks would be his pillow.  Every time he Divinely consciously rises, he gets shot down…and the likes of. That is why it is vital and essential that the Black Afrikan females return back to her Original Divine right mind-set, that which will be the Ultimate Surprise attack, blanket condemnation to all the evil oppressors’ did/doing/will continue to do to our people.

 

As long as the Black Afrikan females have this Phantom on her knees praying performing (Phantom Fellatio) with this so called Jesus, we need to prepare to go out of the Black Afrikan people business.  The Black Afrikan females need to use her energy and loving towards the Black Afrikan males which will help restore the Black Afrikan males back to his Original Divine right mind, through the Black Afrikan Females Renewed Divine Original mind-set, He the Black Afrikan males can be Divinely BORN AGAIN. an Emotional Attachment To Fantasy.

The Black Afrikan males, who have this Emotional Attachment To Fantasy (Jesus), are having a spiritual homosexual mind relationship with this so called Jesus.  There must be Truth in that statement when we hear our people say in their songs/churches, CAN”T NO BODY DO ME LIKE JESUS.

W e never hear the Black Afrikan  females in religions say: CAN’T NO BODY DO ME LIKE MY HUSBAND/MATE.

 

W e never hear the Black Afrikan males in religions say: CAN’T NO BODY DO ME LIKE MY WIFE/MATE.

 

W e never hear the Black Afrikan females/males in religions say: CAN’T NO BODY DO ME LIKE MY MIND.

Beloved Dana wrote:That is one of the reasons I was so pleased that the former Pope hailed from Poland. He had many issues, but he knew the truth.

-------------------------------

ISIS: To hear a Black Afrikan female/people to be pleased with any thing these POPES does, reveals a lot about our thinking. To be pleased with anything these POPES do, is applauding the Killing, stealing, and destruction of our Beloved people. We must be extremely care of who we uplift and support. It was the POPES who authorized others to go into Beloved Afrika and kill, steal, destroy, colonialized, genocide towards our people, and they are still doing it. Yes the Popes know the real Truth/Reality about our people once Original Divine beginning. The Popes knows the Real Truth/Reality and the Lies and deception. In order to lobotomize a people one has to know both.

 

When the Popes apologizes for their authorization in the Genocide of our people, and gives our people our enslaved ancestors Reparations, I will salute them, not bow to them, salute them and that is the only recognition I will give the Popes, they who created this Fantasy Jesus..

-------------------------------------

Beloved Dana wrote:The Pope would often give press conferences standing in front of paintings of the Black Madonna.

-----------------------------------------------

ISIS: Beloved Dana, has it occurred to you the reason the Pope stands in front of the Black Madonna, could it be that the Black Madonna represents the destruction of the Black Afrikan females that MIND that the POPE...and the likes of lobotomized?  When a Hunter goes out to kill, they are often seen taking pictures with what they kill. Some even have what they killed stuff and hung on their walls in their homes for display for others to see.

 

Do the religious so called Jesus own the whole world and ruling and reigning in/on Earth? If so, then this relgious Jesus needs to Come From where ever he is suppose to be and put the below Jesus on/in Earth, put them out of business and save the people from the below Jesus on/in Earth.

Beloved Dana wrote:I used to love to watch the reporters try to angle their shots to keep her out of the picture, but the Pope seemed to notice and would change his stance to keep her included.

-----------------------------------

ISIS: Yes the POPE must keep her included so others can see that the Popes were as I mentioned, was the ones who lobotomized the Black Afrikan female minds.

-------------------------------------------

Beloved Dana wrote: Please replace the pictures of Christ to reflect a more truthful depiction.

------------------------------------------

Beloved Dana, everything is MIND. Nothing gets pass the MIND. Every thought begins and ends with the MIND. MIND is everything precious. WE ARE WHAT WE THINK. The MIND is the most powerful weapon and Tool there is. What you are asking our humble Bro Star Lydell to do is post a picture to an Emotional Attachment To Fantasy. This Jesus is a Profane Mind-set PROGRAM in the MINDS that has been Lobotomized.

 

I can show you Beloved Dana, who this PROGRAMMED Jesus is on/in Earth, but many aren't ready for the real Truth/Reality.

----------------------------------

Beloved Dana wrote:There is a book called "The Thirteenth Tribe" which gives some background on this issue.

-----------------------

ISIS: There is also a "DIVINE BOOK", call our Psyche DNA Soul Mind, in the Abyss of Infinity (within/intuitively), where when we meditate, (within/Intuitively) in that center/circle of self, where it is real, that will reveal the Divine Truth/Reality about all things. Divine real Truth/Reality is written on/in our Psyche DNA Scroll/Scriptures (within/Intuitively).
