Give Your Last - and You Shall be Saved...African Style

As I thought about my previous posting, and the lost of another 'follower' I began to think about how religion, in this case Christianity, continues to poison the minds of men and women worldwide. So, I began to research. The video below validates once again my mantra:

Christianity in its present form is many ways: intellectually, spiritually, and financially.

God Bless and pass the offering tray.

Please watch the eight minute video.

Reader Response:

We don't even have to travel to Afrika to see this--it's happening on many Wednesday's and Sunday's across this country. These con artists know that if they can tap into the faucet of emotions, especially those of Black women who feel as if they are without love and support and therefore have a needy constitution, they can tap into the faucet of their pocketbooks. So many of our people are searching, looking for answers outside of themselves and, in doing so, they leave themselves vulnerable to predators of this type. Now, in that same token, some of these predators are giving their congregations what they pay them for--entertainment, somewhere to leave their responsibilities, etc. Until these people begin healing from the inside out, this will continue at their expense. And to try to tell them differently, will only result in an emotional response that prevents any progress from being made.

Our people are in trouble. I can only will it that more begin to wake up and stop embracing the very things that cause their people worldwide to be in a state of deterioration. We can't make it into the future like this. And we cannot be satisfied with the notion that OUR church is different or that we're better off today than we were yesterday, because neither is true in its totality. Most of our people cannot do anything together because they're too busy fussing about who's Christian, who's Muslim, etc. In the meantime, no work gets accomplished. And that's just the way the system wants it to be. Us at each other's throat constantly. Us always seeking to destroy each other, while they maintain domination. Us living together, yet divided. I know that's talk a lot of people don't want to hear, but it needs to be said--WE ARE WORSE OFF TODAY THAN WE WERE YESTERDAY FOR THE SHEER FACT WE BELIEVE WE'RE BETTER OFF. That should signal to us how well we've been brainwashed, bamboozled, led astray. If we were to read Carter G. Woodson's book The Miseducation of the Negro as someone challenged us to, we'd see that for all intents and purposes we were in similar circumstances when he wrote that book in the 1930s.
