Chrisitians, or slaves?

Yes, they used to be downtown in my city, no one liked them. Not even blacks.

I almost subscribed , but first I always do my own research before anything, but I couldn't get with them saying  black people being the lost tribe that God said would be in slavery for what 400+ , when clearly that already took place.

 

AGRRED, no one today. But most black Christians are Christians today because of colonialism on forced religion. This is the valid issue most blacks have an issue with today, and why they oppose Christianity as a whole, they link it with racism, is my point. And in a lot of ways it can be linked with racism, as well as murder (crusades). Doesn't change the fact that Christ is the only way  its people who are messed up.

Amen.

Those African-Americans who stuck with the Church, I noticed are doing better overall than those who have not.

Something to consider.  I think we're missing something  important  when  we frame *anything* up as "blacks do (did) this...."  "Whites do (did) that...".   There is ONE place where race distinctions truly get wiped out and we're standing in it.  It's at the  foot of  the cross, where red is the only color that matters and was shed for all colors, UNDENIABLY granting equal value to every race and nationality.

People do (did) this or that because they're wittingly or not following  the wrong god and in need of  the Saviour.  Not because of their color  or ethnic group.

 

Truth indeed......there is only one race today— the Christ race.

Shalom Marandawont

I couldn't agree more with your opening post. I find it so sad when things like Black Israelites, Black Jesus and a Black God are pushed out there. For me, if you have to distinguish the colour of Messiah's skin in order to follow him, you've utterly missed the whole point!

I can understand the motive and thought behind it, counter-intuitive as it tends to be at times, but it is missing the whole point of  God's Word and the Messiah's Path entirely. 

Another similar confusion slowly starting to gain traction is that God is a woman. *facepalm

Love & Shalom

It's all from the enemy who wants to divide. If he can get people to hate because of history then he keeps the flame going. It's a device he uses to get blacks away from the true God. Who is the God of Abraham. Who is the father of Jesus his son. It's sells pride instead of worship of God. Your race means nothing. It's being in christ that counts. All believers are in the family of God through faith in Jesus. Everyone counts.

hello, all.

 

I will try to be a nice as possible, but some things cant be said without a little anger.

I am tired of the black community, attacking Christianity. (especially on other Christian blacks)

In recent years African Americans (some)  have come to the conclusion that they all came from Egypt and were past pharaohs.  I get it , you want to be apart of something great because of the past oppression (or current) , cool. But if you do just a little history search you will soon see most slaves came from the west coast of Africa, but sure, some Egyptians could have migrated to the west coast, ill let you have it.

But, to bodly say that other African Americans are lacking intelligence for being Christians, or that they should "wake up" is offensive. YES, slaves were forced to convert to Christianianity. YES they were beat, murdered raped, and countless other horrible acts to accomplish this. and I agree it was wrong and it hurts my heart. Because that's where the opposition comes from today, but that doesn't change the fact that Jesus Christ is the only way.  not your pineal gland, and certainly not King tut. I'm tired of being called a slave because I follow a "white jesus" if you think that, then we have to start from scratch.

Just in time for black history month.

(at work sorry for grammar issues kinda rushed lol)

First of all Jesus was not white he was brown middle eastern, second God created man in his image and we are all created equal and have the same father same savior. 

Africa lets say a few words about it, in my opinion it could be the greatest continent on earth, it has more natural resources then any other but the sad part is> tribal conflict has created a decaying society if the tribes could consider themselves equal instead of a ruling party it could change. How can a continent so great be so backwords. If they only could come together and rule as God would intend them to starving little kids disease rampant poverty with so much resources at hand can it ever change. It seems like they blame everyone else but all they need to do is to look in the mirror and there in itself lye's the problem. Now how is it when Europeans move in the country it prospers in many ways utilizing resources organization unity. Now when this happens the local people blame them when it was all available for them right there but they just could not unite enough to build it themselves.
