Is Christianity White Religion?

is-christianity-the-white-mans-religionChristianity is not a white man’s religion or slave master’s religion as make belief fallacy assumes. The white people in the West did not introduce Christianity to Africans through slavery. The Africans introduced Christianity 2,000 years ago when African Christian history began in Bible in Genesis with Mitochondrial Eve and Adam before Bible was completed. The Garden of Eden had 4 rivers flowing through Africa Cush, Ethiopia Abyssinia, Egypt, Sudan, Kenya, Uganda and east Africa. People of Africa know the God of the Bible as shown in time of Abraham who lived in Canaan with converts to Judaism and moved once to Egypt during famine. Hagar the mother of Ishmaelites was from Egypt and Jacob lived in Egypt during famine with Joseph. Moses’ wife Zipporah was an Egyptian and Joseph lived in Egypt as the Pentateuch points out. God delivered the people of Israel through Moses in oral history of God’s nature and God’s dealings with HIS people. Generations later God led Israel out of the Egyptian slavery and many Egyptians recognized the God of the Bible as God Almighty. Queen of Sheba was first mentioned in the Bible as this word queen referred to Black woman in 1 Kings 10:1. The queen of Sheba heard of fame of Solomon and his relationship to the Lord so she came to test Solomon with hard questions. And brought many spices as never brought in ever again as queen Sheba gave to Solomon.new2.png

Scholars say Moses’ wife, Zipporah was black as she was a Cushite in Numbers 12:1. Cush is the ancient name of areas of Africa. The Shulamite woman is black in Song of Solomon 1:5 in Bible. Some say Bathsheba in 2 Samuel 11:3 was black so was Simeon the Niger in Acts 13:1. The Ethiopian eunuch in Acts &:37 was black. Ethiopians are mentioned 40 times in Bible references to black people. Since Ethiopians are black, prophet Jeremiah asked, can Ethiopian change his skin in Jeremiah 13:23 referring to a black skin.  Most Bible teachers believe black people are descendants of Noah’s son Ham in Genesis 10:6-20 in Bible. When it comes to active roles blacks play in Bible often white writers consistently are silent. So instead of giving due credit to blacks in living history, tone down the colour of the skin as not important to God as the condition of the heart. The gospel is a universal good news to black people, white people and every shade in between invited to come to Christ for salvation. By the grace of God black are included in the covenant of God with all the nations on earth. So black skin created by God is highly valued, precious, priceless focus on black soul matters to God in Christ.

quote-jesus-was-not-a-white-man-he-was-not-a-black-man-he-came-from-that-part-of-the-world-billy-graham-82-41-55 After Jeremiah 1,500 years later, people of Africa were exposed to the God of the Bible as Jesus dwelt with them in Egypt. The Coptic church has memorialized the person of Jesus Christ who was taken by Mary and Joseph into Egypt to protect Him from the wrath of Herod. 30 years later Jesus faced crucifixion in Jerusalem weak, tortured, towards execution, it was black African man Simon of Cyrene who helped Him carry His Cross in Matthew 27:32. The Apostle Mark names Simon of Cyrene as the father of Alexander and Rufus. After Jesus died and rose again He ascended and His apostles filled with the Holy Spirit, empowered proclaims gospel message during Pentecost. For festivals in Jerusalem, proselytes travelled from African Churches among many people from many places. Africans from places such as Egypt and Libya and all people under the heavens gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost. Included Jewish converts  who came from every nation under the heavens to Jerusalem at Pentecost as 33 C.E. account describes the Pentecost crowd of people. 3,000 people converted that day in Acts 2:38 when Peter said to them, Repent be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of all sins and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.TARDIS-Pentecost.jpgThe African converts took gospel to their homelands after these celebration. Acts 2:9 states this following list of all people from places in Jerusalem 3 times a year. As “Parthians, Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia. Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia Pamphylia, Egypt, parts of Libya of Cyrene, visitors from Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians.”All people in Jerusalem included Jews as the text says There, dwelling in Jerusalem were Jews devout men from every nation under heaven.” Most were Jews by birth but in the crowd were Gentiles converted to Jewish faith. Devout Jews together with proselyte  Gentiles were present each year in the crowd from every nation under heaven for 33 years in Jerusalem in Jesus’ lifetime and after. About 3 million Jews and converts in Jerusalem go in the temple on appointed days during 3 major festivals in Hebrew calendar which calls for people in Israel to be in the temple. These pilgrimage festivals of Feast of Passover are Pesach, in the Hebrew language in early spring; the Feast of Weeks, “Shavuoth,” which occurred fifty days later in later spring or “Pentecost,” means 50 days after Jesus Resurrection.” A third major pilgrimage festival is Feast of Booths or Tabernacles, “Sukkoth,” in the fall. So the Christian gospel made its way into Africa not in the 17th century through colonization but in first century within months of Jesus’ life and after His death by blacks to black people. 

89bb59177e56c0912f307d68dd09b733.jpgSeveral Africans play key roles in book of Acts where gospel continues to spread beyond Jerusalem. Apollos, an African of Alexandria became influential teacher and co-labourer of the Apostle Paul. The church at Antioch sent Paul and Silas as missionaries working with 2 key leaders of African descent, Simon called Niger and Lucius of Cyrene. The most famous African in New Testament is Ethiopian eunuch’s conversion recounted in Acts 8. Ethiopian eunuch was a high-ranking member of Queen Candace of Ethiopia’s court. While traveling back to Ethiopia from Jerusalem was reading the words of the prophet Isaiah from the Septuagint Old Testament translated from Hebrew into Greek in Africa. While reading he encountered Philip an evangelist who explained gospel to him, assured him of his salvation and baptized him. The Ethiopian already made yearly trips to Jerusalem previously as a Jewish convert. Now returned home rejoicing, bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ with him into Ethiopia where Jesus’ Church maintains consistent witness for two millennia. As gospel moved to Africa from Jerusalem it grew spreading to Europe and elsewhere. The book of Acts 11:20 reveals Africans were evangelizing with non-Africans so over the next several hundred years the African Christians had a tremendous impact on Western Christianity. And so the Western missionaries who came to Africa nearly 2,000 years later brought with them understanding of Christianity influenced by Africans.

 The core Christian doctrines that says American slave masters passed on to black slaves in the 17th through 19th centuries were shaped in large part by whites. African Christians nearly 2,000 years before know God before doctrines of the colour, race, nature of Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the nature of the Trinity were formally codified at Church Council of Nicaea. Nicaea and other Christian councils included bishops from all over the Christianized world. And Nicaea had members from East including Africa and the West. It was culturally and ethnically diverse group of bishops not whites who translated teachings of Scripture to the creedal statements that these councils produced and all orthodox Christians follow. So the creedal statement was influenced by writings and the teachings of African theologians like Augustine, Alexander, Athanasius, Cyril and others.

History of Christianity.jpg

David Livingston in 1813-1873 succeeded in his desire to expose the slave trade as his dominant motive. Proving the source of the Nile as geographical part of Africa was important to Livingstone. He proved the Bible was true by tracing the African roots of Judaism and Christianity. And he met generations later Africans who continued keeping black Jewish belief and Torah practices. Livingstone also on Africa in 1841 wrote, it was as exotic as outer space called the “Dark Continent” and “White Man’s Graveyard.” although the Portuguese, Dutch, and English were pushing into the interior, African maps had blank unexplored areas no roads, no countries, no landmarks. So Livingstone helped to redraw maps exploring a dozen countries including the hinterland South Africa, Rwanda, Angola, and Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire). And he made the West aware of the continuing evil of African slavery which led to it being later outlawed. He was awed by the beauty of Zambezi river used for human misery. It linked the Portuguese colonies of Angola and Mozambique, the main suppliers of slaves for Brazil who in turn sold to Cuba and United States. Though Livingstone was partially driven by a desire to create a British Christian colony, his primary ambition was to expose the slave trade and cut it off at the source. The strongest weapon in his task as he believed was for the Christian commercial civilization. He wanted to help replace the “inefficient” slave economy with a proper respect of black economy to buy and sell goods not fellow human beings and God’s people.maxresdefault (1).jpg

Hence whoever identifies misconstrues Christianity as ‘a white man’s religion’ must understand it is not true. Faith in God belongs to all nations under heaven not exclusively as a white religion but is a universal belief. So cannot be made white as Jesus’ bleached image makes Him whiter by overlooking exceedingly important role of blacks, Africans in the Bible in living church history. Original true Christianity comes from finished work of Jesus CHRIST not whites. Jesus “gave himself for all to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify His people as His own Titus 2:14. So all individuals of every tribe, language and people and nation belong to God says Revelation 5:9 as citizens of heavens. As James 1:13-14 says, let no one say when tempted to be evil say “I am tempted by God for God cannot be tempted with evil and so God tempts no one. Each person tempted to do evil is lured and enticed by his own evil desires. People cannot reject God then blame and accuse God for being a white racist by their wicked actions. And salvation is a personal decision required into the kingdom of God through Christ alone so whites are not the gatekeepers of heaven. Bitterness and anger against those who do evil in the name of God is fully recorded in Book of Life by God who takes full notice. During Judgement Day God will throw them in hell if they do not repent. You do not want to be their neighbours in hell so it is important not blame others especially God if not living right within the will of God. And humble yourself, repent to be saved in Christ not to miss heaven because of being misled to think Christianity belongs to whites. All have sinned and fallen short of the grace of God as sinners whether black, white, yellow or red. God loves all people so does not want anyone to reject Christ perish. Accept the key to entering God Almighty’s Kingdom through Christ for Christians as the only way of salvation in Christ alone not whites. Above all, God is not a white racist supremacist so LOVES all people who love and honour HIM in Christ. God created all people, provides life, food, sunshine, rain, shelter for all including HIS enemies. God wants all saved in Christ so stop divisive use of the Christian Gospel to preach hatred and divisions in the name of Father God in Christ Jesus Name. 

COMET WF9 NEARS EARTH

Asteroid heading towards EarthA mega Comet WF9 comes near earth on 25th February 2017 as NASA detected the object approaching Earth. The asteroid is somewhat dark, and possibly a comet, but without the comet-like dust and gas cloud will strike Earth to trigger mega-tsunami according to online rumours. It is so huge you will be able to see it from Britain on 25th February 2017.  Mystery   space rock is on collision course with Earth according to crackpot theorists. Nasa confirmed mysterious 2016 WF9 is closely approaching Earth and we should be able to see it orbit the planet. Asteroid heads towards Earth as the space rock was detected by NASA in late November 2016. It is in the middle of its of.9 year orbit between Jupiter and Earth and will approach us on February 25, flying by at a distance of 32 million miles from the planet, they claimed. The comet will be near earth close enough to be seen visibly if the weather permits. Let us hope we can see this comet WF9 and earth will be safe at the same time. So science confirms God’s creation of the universe as comets are described in the Bible. Often the writers and prophets include comets or asteroids as part of their writings or warnings from God. So these large comets are mentioned in the Bible many times as part of God’s firmaments. Bible describes many comets used in the past as part of God’s weapon of warfare against HIS enemies. Book of Revelation in the Bible warns of endtime asteroids to be unleashed by God as part of HIS weapons of mass destruction of earth as punishment before its restoration. God Says do not mistreat stranger or oppress him remember you were once strangers in Exodus 22:21.  If a widow or fatherless child is to cry out to God because of the ill treatment of others, God promises He will pour out His fierce wrath upon their oppressor and kill them so their wives would be widows and their children too will fatherless according to Exodus 22 : 22–24.  God will punish some nations with huge comets so we to see the type of comet used by God for destruction in advance before Armageddon unleashes comets for real to vanquish all evil on earth. Bible says, woe to those who devise iniquity and work evil upon their beds at night so when morning is light they execute it because power is in their hand in Micah 2:1. Isaiah declared, those terrible ones are brought to nothing so scorners will cease to exist on earth in Isaiah 33:15. One cannot treat people as worthless to take away their rights or take advantage of their time, talents, or work and expect God’s blessings. Other minds on internet claim non-existent astronomer accused space agency of a cover up. So suggest space rock fragment heading straight to earth according them. Some people demonstrated illustration of what would happen if asteroid struck Earth.asteroid-hit-earth-287512

Nasa said it did not believe that this asteroid will collide with Earth, but it will provide an incredible spectacle as it soars over our planet. International bid to save humanity from the doomsday asteroids has run of cash so beware and make sure you stay as safe as possible. It is claimed by scientists life from MARS was carried to Earth by asteroid evolving to emit oxygen from caves to sustain life on planet earth. Others think a gigantic asteroid packed full of enough precious metals will crash world’s economy to cause devastation. It is thought similar asteroid destroyed earth and large animal fossils excavated.  The Bible creation story is different because all life on earth started from Adam and Eve by mitochondrial genetics from God. The garden of Eden had all things pertaining to life in the paradise garden already available before man’s creation on the 6th day. God is still in control of earth and all the universe which was taken over by mankind’s self rule excluding God. Since mankind rejected God for so long God is taking back HIS EARTH to restore perfect peace on earth. Sadly, since mankind refuses to totally yield to God in Christ, God is forced to use any means necessary to reinstate earth.   

Nasa experts believe the 2016 WF9 asteroid is between 0.3 and 0.6 miles across. If correct, it would be likely to burn up on entry to. Dr Zakharovich claims it is much larger and will blast through the Earth’s atmosphere with ease. The bizarre claims come as an international bid to save humanity from doomsday asteroids run out of cash. The  mission hailed as dry run for apocalypse was due to work out how to steer space rocks away from the Earth. shutterstock_368546519.jpg

If this is true, it hitting Earth, there is nothing we can do anyway, just live on till we die, life is short enough as it is, why worry about something we have no power over / I am prepared to meet my God, are you ?

They won’t be called “Crackpot Theorists” if it does hit the earth.    Syria/Iraq area would be a good spot to hit.
