What if the religion I am practicing is not my own? Not truly and truthfully my own. What if the names in the Bible were changed to disguise the fact that Bible took place very near and mostly in Africa? What if the people were really the nation/people of Africa? What if Jesus was an African, born on the continent of Africa? If Eden was in Africa? If God made man from dirt, then wouldn't "Adam's" skin be brown? And if God made man in his image, the wouldn't God have brown skin too? (But God isn't flesh...But Jesus is/was...) Then wouldn't "Adam's" become darker as he toiled the soil, as that was his punishment from God for breaking the commandment? What if the Bible is simply a patchwork "quilt" of stories and concepts that have been cut from the true original cloth?
Is the systematic depression of African American prevalent all across the WORLD as it is in AMERICA? Are we painted in such a dark manner as being naturally ignorant, poor, nasty, uneducated, worthless, Who would create such lies? Who would go thru such depths of deception? Who would want to condemn, demean an entire race? What did they accomplish? Who will they target next?
But does any of this changes God's love? Does it change the fact that He gave us life? Does this change the core concepts of the Bible? I believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. (simple) Darkness is whatever you are looking at whenever you turn away from the light. See Ephesians 5:13. One day ALL truths will be exposed.
God, I'm just gonna trust you. I'm just gonna trust you with my life and the life of my generations. Deception is deeply rooted in everything I see. I cannot trust everything I read, no matter how prevalent or peer-reviewed the text is. I can only go by the unction of the Spirit that you gave me. SPEAK TO MY SPIRIT GOD AND TELL ME THE TRUTH.
These are some of my thoughts, questions, comments and "could-care-less"...
