Was The Bible Written to Enslave Africans?

Deon
March 20, 2014

raceThroughout my dealings on the Internet I have encountered many people who claim that the Bible was invented by Euro-centric Whites to try to control and manipulate blacks.

But Where Did This ideology come from?

This is a part of the many doctrines that was spread throughout the African

BP

community as a whole. It was a part of the Black Supremacy movement, in this movement we African Americans are told that our race is superior to all other races.

Many people who support this movement condemn the ancestors of Whites for enslaving the ancestors of blacks, but they immediately turn around and exalt their own ethnicity above the other.

This was the very concept (White Supremacy) that led Europeans to enslave blacks.

Does The Bible really promote Slavery?

First off, we must address the simple fact that biblical slavery and the slavery slaverythat was practiced in the United States are NOT the same entities.

In the United States, a slave was a person who was forced by penalty of death to obey his “master”.

This master automatically owned not only the slave, but everything the slave owned (including an unborn child in the mothers womb).

The slaves were treated cruelly, they were forced to be uneducated, they slept in little shacks, and they only received the basic necessities for survival.

But biblical slavery was much different from this. In Biblical times, a slave/servant was considered to be anyone who worked for someone else. So In our times, we would refer to Biblical slaves as workers or employees.

All throughout the bible, we see how a person’s slaves would be living inside of their house. This is drastically different from the Slavery practiced in America where slaves were forced to sleep in small empty sheds.

In Ancient times, and even today…
a person’s Home is considered Sacred.

If you only allow your closest friends to come into your home, imagine how close a servant had to be to his master to actually live in his home. This was symbolic that the master would treat the servant as one of his own household (family).

In the bible, God made a Covenant with Abraham. And God told Abraham to circumcise everyone living in his house, Including the servants. This symbolic representation is why many men are still circumcised today.

(Genesis 17:23)  On that same day Abraham obeyed God and circumcised his son Ishmael and all the other males in his household, including the slaves born in his home and those he had bought.

But, we can see here that Abraham circumcised not only his immediate family, but his servants also. But Why did he do this? He did it because his servants were also considered a part of his household.

Slavery, why everyone was doing it.war

One thing that is so commonly disputed is the morality of slavery.

Yes, It indeed is an ugly thing. But with that said, so is War, Death, Famine, and Disease.

What we must come to understand is that ever since the Fall of humanity, all the things have been present in the world. That’s just the way it Is.

Yes, There is coming a day when God will remove all of these things and will restore humanity back to its rightful place. There will be no more War, Death, Famine, or Disease. But for this present moment, this is the way of the World.

In that time (and even today), nations fought against one another. Whichever Nation won the war, received the spoils (cattle, land, women, etc.). So in this time, anyone who was captured from war became a POW (prisoner of war) and it was this that resulted in them becoming slaves and/or workers.

So Why Is The Bible Blamed?bible

Many people attempt to blame the Bible for the enslavement of our African American ancestors, but there is a reason for this.

In the days of slavery, when Americans would bring the slaves over into the New World (America); The slave owners would misuse biblical scripture as an attempt to convince the slaves that God wanted them to remain slaves.

They would often use verses such as…

(Leviticus 25:44)  If you need slaves, you may buy them from the nations around you.

(Leviticus 25:45)  You may also buy the children of the foreigners who are living among you. Such children born in your land may become your property,

 

As the means to keep them imprisoned. However, they would not permit the slaves to learn how to read because with knowledge comes power, and where there is power… freedom is soon to follow.

So therefore, because the Bible was the tool that was used to help keep African Americans enslaved; many people try to use that as a basis to discredit the bible. But this is the wrong conclusion to take from this event.

Lets use a simple analogy,hammer

Question: Is a Hammer evil?
Answer: No

But although the hammer itself is not evil, can it be used for Evil?
Answer: Yes

Likewise, The Bible is not to blame for the actions of the Slave owners who misused the scriptures as an attempt to enslave. The scriptures must be Rightly divided, and If anyone uses it outside of its proper context then they are misusing scripture.

We can see In the book of Matthew when Satan tried to misuse Biblical scripture in an attempt to cause Jesus to Stumble. But because Jesus knew the proper context of the scripture, he could not be deceived by Satan’s misuse of it.

(Matthew 4:5)  Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

(Matthew 4:6)  And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

(Matthew 4:7)  Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

 

Spiritual Descendants of Hate

When Europeans enslaved blacks,
they were operating under the precept thathate

the Euro-centric race was greater than the African race (White Supremacy).

But when the African Descendants attempt to exalt their own race above the race of another (Black Supremacy), then we are proving to be no better than

those who enslaved our ancestors. And by doing such, we actually become the spiritual offspring of the men who enslaved our African ancestors.

So Was The Bible Written By Europeans?

Now, I am a strong believer that there is no dumb questions except the ones that we do not ask. However, I think this is quite a bizarre theory regarding the bible’s origins.

Some people have actually accused Europeans of creating the Bible simply to control their slaves.

3 Quick reasons why this Theory Is Ridiculous:

  1. They used weapons to enforce the slavery, Not a few thousands sheets of paper.– At the time, The Europeans had far better Technology than the rest of the world. Therefore they were able to invade African Territory and take many of them captive.Many people will refute this by claiming that Africans had advanced technology as well.This is true, however… we can clearly see from the apparent outcome which Nation’s technology was superior. (We were enslaved)

     

  2. The Bible is a Historic account of Jewish History. 

    – The Bible is comprised of 2 parts. The Old Testament and The New testament. The Old Testament (also called the Torah) is the historic account of Israel before the time of Christ. However The New Testament is the Historic account of the Jesus Christ. But both the Old and the New testaments out-date the European Union. 

  3. The New Testament alone was written about 1,993 years before the europeEuropean Union was Formed!- The European Union was not created until 1993 (A.D).Therefore It wasn’t created until 1,993years AFTER Jesus Christ had died. ( New Testament )

Conclusion:

After considering this, How could the Europeans write a book (New Testament) that was written almost 2,000 years before their Nation was even created?

Because of this, we can only come to the conclusion that The Bible couldn’t have possibly have been written by Europeans.

To The Reader

So what do you Think? Do you think that the Bible was written by Man as an attempt to control and enslave other men? Or do you believe that the Bible is the Inspired word of God?

  • Great post….. I have personally seen numerous posts on social media website dishonoring the bible due to things mentioned in your post. I truly and whole heartedly believe the bible is the Inspired Word of God given so that we can have eternal life in heaven. I also feel that many people use the biblical teachings and try to make them relate to what they believe or as you mentioned they dont rightly divide the word. Its like buying a new car that comes with a manual. The manual tells you how to service and care for the car. As long as you get the oil changed,tires rotated, and car serviced on time everything runs smoothly. A simple minded person will have the manual and choose not to follow the instructions. They will fix things the way they want, then when the engine tears up blames the dealership, when in fact they didnt properly use and interpet the manual. The bible was given to us to guide us to a safe spiritual destination. Many people choose to do what they feel or interpet it to fit what they already believe.

      Hey Janice!

      Thanks for your response!

      I totally agree with you! I have encountered many people who try to discredit the Word of God because they heard some “half-cooked” theory that is based on faulty facts and false assumptions.

      These people often are not independent thinkers, therefore they are usually swayed with every wind of doctrine.

      But the Bible tells us that we should study his word to show ourselves approved.

      It is in situations like this that Christians must not only know the Bible, but also examine and expose the lies.

      I believe The Apostle Paul said it best in his letter to the Ephesians!

      (Ephesians 4:11) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

      (Ephesians 4:12) For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

      (Ephesians 4:13) Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

      (Ephesians 4:14) That we henceforth BE NO MORE CHILDREN, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

    I totally agree with the both of you, Sister Janice
    and Brother Deon. I have learned over the years, not to debate the word of God,
    there is no use, and it has no purpose in doing that, I will set down and have
    a reasonable discussion about it, but anything else is foolishness to me. I
    rather persuade an individual to understand the truth about the word of God. With
    that in mind, I will address two posts in one. Brother Deon, you have a post
    titled The Christian “Panic Attack”, and I was very intrigued and moved by the
    frame of thought that was revealed here, because at the very moment that I read
    your post, I was thinking, “God,” You know exactly what we need, when we need
    it, and He may not have been saying those 3 word, “Just Have Fun,” to me, He
    did say, John 4:8-Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. We do
    have ways of allowing fear to creep in and steal any and all hope we have in
    God, and instead of increasing in faith, we are constantly decreasing in faith.
    As I looked on this post, I realized, no matter what we are dealing with in
    this life, the mere fact still remains, Hebrews
    11:6; (KJV) 6 But without faith it is impossible to please
    him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a
    rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    Now, as I moved along and discovered this post, Sister
    Janice states that “I have personally seen numerous posts on social media website dishonoring the bible
    due to things mentioned in your post.” My thought was this to God, even in my
    mess (wavering mindset), I know that your word is Good and True, and as I think
    back on the word that King David spoke, Psalm 119:11, (KJV) 11 Thy word have I hid
    in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. I realize the word of God is
    like this, If I come upon a window, that is dusty, and try to look through it,
    there is no use, I can’t see, but if I take the damp rag, and wipe away the
    dust, I can see clearly now, and so it is with the word of God, it was designed,
    so that man can see himself clearly to make a conscious decision to repent of the
    evil that lies within us or continue to think we are okay and just pass through
    life. Through my Spiritual walk with God, I have learned that the word of God will
    either DRAW YOU- (this because deep down inside you know that there is a God,
    and you want to change, because you’re not happy with whom you are inwardly.) or PUSH YOU AWAY- (And this, because, “Oh ye of little faith, and you are satisfied with your life, or so you think, and
    there is no need for you to put your trust in something that may or may not
    exist, because you have been doing fine this far, on your own, surviving and
    making it happen, that you don’t need to put your hope in a God that man has
    made to exist.)

    Now we come to the truth of the matter. The word of
    God has been given by way of man, inspired by the Spirit of God, for our example
    to show us how to live, and how not to live, He declared this in Deuteronomy 30:19, (KJV) 19 I
    call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before
    you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou
    and thy seed may live. Why must God inspire us to live Holy and Righteous? Because, we see right here from the WORD (Bible), Genesis 6:5 (KJV) tells us 5 And God saw that the
    wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the
    thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

    Now, for the revelation to all that will hear, and
    believe. We have a tendency to swear by many things on this earth, and most of
    the time we “swear to God”, but God have said in His word, I swear by myself,
    that is to say, I don’t need anyone to swear by me are even to believe me, I’m
    God, and THAT I will always be, and I will be God whether people believe in me
    or not, but for your benefits, God advised and declared in Isaiah 43 11 I,
    even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. 12 I have
    declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god
    among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.

    Finally let me leave your readers with this to think
    on, Matthew 24:35 (KJV) 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away,
    but my words shall not pass away.

      REPLY- Sis Alicia I totally agree with you! The Bible says It perfectly…

      (Titus 3:9)
      “But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.”

      QUOTE: “but if I take the damp rag, and wipe away the

      REPLY: Wonderful analogy Sis Alicia! Also, your comment

      QUOTE: “even in my mess (wavering mindset), I know that your word is Good and True”

      literally brought Psalm 51 to mind for me!

      (Psalms 51:2-3)
      “Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
      For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.”

      In this scripture David comes TRANSPARENTLY before the Lord with his Sin.

      I truly admire David,

      many people only want to show themselves in their “Best” Light to The LORD, so before they come they try to “Wash Up” and “Dress Up” their sins in Nice Clothes.

      But David comes to the Lord Naked (figuratively), he presents his sin AS-IS.

      He doesn’t try to Dress or cover it up, and because of This… I know that the Lord Loved David.

      As I was telling you Earlier,

      I am often reminded of DAVID whenever I fall short.

      King David was a man of God, but he was also a MESS.

      ( He caused over 70,000 Jews to be killed in one day, He committed adultery and then turned around and had the man killed )

      But God is Merciful and Forgiving.

      And he looked at the heart of the man (David),

      And when he looked at David’s heart, he saw Righteousness.

      Likewise, God looks at our Hearts…

      If our hearts SEEK righteousness
      (although we may not always DISPLAY it),

      he will lead us to it…. As a Good shepherd would! 🙂

        Before y’all ask the question Was The Bible Written to Enslave Africans? First you need to ask Who created the bible? And why is it name the king James version? When we all know king James was gay? The Bible was not handed to mankind by God, nor was it dictated to human stenographers by God. It has nothing to do with God. In actuality, the Bible was VOTED to be the word of God by a group of men during the 4th century.According to Professor John Crossan of Biblical Studies at DePaul University the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great (274-337 CE), (a bust of Constantine is pictured below) who was the first Roman Emperor to convert to Christianity, needed a single canon to be agreed upon by the Christian leaders to help him unify the remains of the Roman Empire. Until this time the various Christian leaders could not decide which books would be considered “holy” and thus “the word of God” and which ones would be excluded and not considered the word of God

        • wake up

          dirtyduvai I agree with you from my research on African lit I discovered that the bible was created for the enslavement of people ,its amazing as African people we will take time to read the bible a book that was handed to us by our oppresser but wont take time to learn African lit , voodoo was the first African spiritual, afrcan people was praising Yahweh 1000s of yrs before the king james version or christanty . study our history and you will find out the reality and stop beliving they so called truth wake up

            Exactly

          • bamboodread

            Afrikan people were not “praising Yahweh 1000s of yrs before the king james version or christanty.” That is just total rubbish

        • Calibur X Damadlyricist

          First we need to understand that King James did not write the original scriptures. It’s called King James VERSION for a reason. It wasn’t the first. If I write a song I wouldn’t add the fact that it’s my version if I created it.

          • TheTufeWillSetYouFree

            And we wonder why Black People can never get ahead. We believe what we were taught and there’s no other viewpoint. Its amazing that when you leave the USA everything makes sense and the truth is there for all to see. Can someone tell me if there’s any PROOF of ANY of the names and people mentioned in the bible? I can guarantee that if you go to Africa, there ARE PROOF,.Written, pics and other evidence. Where are those listed in the Bible. If it is so the word of God, there should be proof everywhere. If there is, I haven’t seen it yet. Must we believe everything the oppressors tell us? C’mon man. be real. if you want the truth, just go find it. It is there. The problem is that most black Americans are so beyond indoctrination that they can’t see the trees from the forest.

          • Steel

            You can’t get ahead because of your low IQs. The very fact that you people believe such bullshit or as you say ” booshit” is empirical proof.

    Just a quick testimony of my experiences with this….

    For 30 years of my life, I wasn’t the most spiritual person but I did believe in Jesus. Whenever I was in a bind I prayed to him, and whenever things went my way I gave him thanks. He gave me everything I wanted in life. A decent job, a beautiful wife, and beautiful kids. Like you, I began reading things on facebook about Egyptian spirituality and a lot of the points made sense. I lost faith in God due to all the new questions I had. I began doing and saying things that a god fearing man wouldn’t do. I stopped praying and stopped believing. Within a year my life was turned upside down. I nearly lost my wife and family due to doing things that are totally against God’s word. One day while talking to my wife, I realized that maybe God allowed some things in my life happen to show me he was indeed real. Things became a lot clearer and I began thinking.

    If you think long and hard enough, any theory can be questioned.
    A lot of the Egyptian movement have no facts or guide to live by, but base their arguments on purely degrading god and the bible.
    Black supremacy supporters focus much of their energy on focusing on hate of the white man. Slavery and white supremacy is and was wrong, but why hate a whole race?
    If the bible is “altered”, can it be said that manuscripts written on walls of the pyramids could have been altered or changed?

    And let’s get this straight, not all of us are of Egyptian descent. So why do we focus strictly on Egyptian ideals and deities?

    All I know is when I got back in the church, I had a feeling within myself that I never had before and cannot explain. I’m reading the bible and actively in church and I do not see anything that was created to oppress us or to mentally enslave us. I do not worship a white Jesus, neither do I worship a black one. Jesus is bigger than a race or gender to me.

    I promote us as Blacks learning our history and gathering all the knowledge we can of our ancestors, but promoting hate is not the way to do it. People are always attempting to debunk the bible, but people also say man never went to the moon. They think the government killed Kennedy. People even believe 2pac is alive. You can challenge anything under the sun. I for one know in my heart that the world is waaaaay to complex to believe in evolution or a big bang theory. A higher intelligent being had to be involved for things to be the way they are.

    I’m not trying to persuade anyone to become a christian, but I will say that now that my eyes are open, nobody can tell me to be anything else. The approach of many black supremacists is way to aggressive, hateful, and for a whole year of reaching out to people who claimed to be deep in the whole Egyptian movement, I never got a clear understanding about what it was all about, or any facts. I’ve watched countless documentaries of Hagins, Sara Suten Seti, Polite, and Ashra, and I never got an understanding or facts other than the Sun is supposedly God.

      Amen Bro!

      thank you so much for commenting and Sharing your Experiences!

      I really can relate to your story.

      Quote: “I lost faith in God due to all the new questions I had. I began doing and saying things that a god fearing man wouldn’t do”

      Reply: Yes man we all have been there. But the beatiful thing about God is that he will never give up on us. He has already seen our life from BEGIN to the END…. from Alpha to OMEGA… From Eternity to ETERNITY.

      There is nothing hidden from his eyes.

      And he saw your heart, It was confused. And he allowed everything to happen perfectly so you could see his goodness towards you and your family.

      I often think about my own situation, I was raised in the Church… almost from birth.

      So by the time I was a teenager, I wanted NOTHING to do with it.

      I had made up in my mind that I would NEVER step foot in a church when I became an adult.

      It is amazing how God has a way of turning our plans upside down!

      But yes brother, you must be VERY careful when dabbling into all these religions and eastern philosophical points. Always consult God before you do.

      Satan is VERY crafty, he uses all these SLICK doctrines in order to plant SEEDS of unbelief into your heart. The Bible calls these “Doctrines of Demons”

      (1 Timothy 4:1-2)

      “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

      Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron”

      I have been reading some things only to hear God’s voice speak to my spirit and say “Don’t Read That”.

      And a few times I did not listen, only to have my FAITH shaken up. But I thank God for his mercy, he would always answer the question perfectly in a way that made sense to me.

      Even now, That is why I try to address ALL skeptical questions against the Bible as you have seen me do. Because I know that God has the Answer and will Share it with his people.

      But these false religions are so COMPLEX, that they give you a headache even trying to understand them all.

      But God made the Gospel of Christ SIMPLE that the world calls it FOOLISH.

      (1 Corinthians 1:21) For God in his wisdom made it impossible for people to know him by means of their own wisdom. Instead, by means of the so-called “foolish” message we preach, God decided to save those who believe.

      (1 Corinthians 1:22) Jews want miracles for proof, and Greeks look for wisdom.

      (1 Corinthians 1:23) As for us, we proclaim the crucified Christ, a message that is offensive to the Jews and nonsense to the Gentiles;

      (1 Corinthians 1:24) but for those whom God has called, both Jews and Gentiles, this message is Christ, who is the power of God and the wisdom of God.

      But I pray that you stay strong in Christ bro!

      Don’t be “Swayed” by all these new religions that are created every day, but continue to place your trust in the True and Living God and he will Establish you in his Grace which we have found in Christ Jesus!

      Awesome Testimony Brother, I will continue to keep you and your family lifted up in prayer. It’s always a blessing to see God’s miracle working power, and Awesome Glory! He is constantly seeking such that will worship Him and it doesn’t matter that we fall, all that matter is that we rise again, and because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the truth that He is risen, He has given us the power to rise as well. Always remember the race is not given to the swift or the strong, but the one that endureth till the end, this always gives me hope and it allows me the privilege to always remember, that God’s mercy is new every morning,

    • Marius

      Funny how I was born and raised as a Christian and when I got to about 18/19 years old I started to question God and his actions and realised it’s all a bunch of lies. And not only were they lies, there was no shred of evidence to support them. I then moved on and gave up on religion entirely, started to judge things and events based on evidence. I’ve been doing pretty good ever since, not a single difference between when I was a believer and when I wasn’t. It all depends on how I treat life and the decisions I make. They influence my life and how it evolves.

      Just put yourself this question. If there have been more than 4000 gods (Norse gods, Greek gods, Aztec gods, Roman gods, etc.) throughout human history, how do I know my god is the real deal? Just because you were born and raised in a particular faith, it doesn’t mean it is the true one. Think of this for example. Ancient Greece was the place of remarkable cultural and scientific achievements. They were at the top of civilisation, and guess what? They were worshipping Zeus, Athena, Apollo, Poseidon, Artemis, etc. Then at some point in time, they gave up on their gods due to the invasion of the Roman Empire and converted to Christianity. Guess what happened during God’s watch? Greece got under the rule of the Ottoman Empire (Turkish Muslim) for 400 years. For 400 years Greeks were deprived of their human rights and were considered second class citizens. Greeks could’ve thought just like you that it was a mistake to give up on their gods, you giving up on your god respectively.

      I’m not sure if you got my point, but if you put a bit of thought into it, you will surely understand what I mean.

    • That was a really great testimony. I feel the words you deliver on so many levels. I do believe there is a God. Inspite of the claims of the bible being changed since slavery; Maybe it was and I actually believe that due to transliterations that the bible was tampered with and yet being tampered today. But that has nothing to do with the personal experience and spiritual transforamtion that happens from person to person, such as yr example. Which let’s you know and feel the existence of God, for real. I think that Yahweh/YHWH(God), is the hebrew name And the son (Yeshua) used for what got transliterated in English as the name “Jesus/Joshua” but it’s easier to research the orgin of the name Jesus for one’s self. Other than that and the transliteration done throughout the years; I can attest from personal spiritual situations and un-explainable break throughs in my life as well, that I honestly believe there is a God. I’m also in agreement with you when you state that some are way to aggressive…Because “God is not the author of confusion” …When people shoot out hate vibes, little do they know, that it somehow takes away from the attempt for others to even try to understand them. One can certainly accomplish more with the spirit of love instead of hate. Thanks for sharing your experience and insight.

    • Leah Sherrill Miller

      I just had to reply to your comment and say what an intelligent, well put answer!!! While i happen to think that the bible was changed slightly to control people, and hate and saying that if people do not believe in just ONE religion, that those people will NOT get into heaven, is complete and utter bull!!! I believe in a God who loves ALL people, reguardless of how you choose to worship, as long as you believe in God and live a worthy life, and treat everyone with the same love and respect, we are all guaranteed life everlasting in the kingdom of the almighty, for it is alive in each one, for we are ALL ONE!!! THAT is the message that needs spread, we are all one, and everything that is done, should be done out of love…that is the message, love one another!!! Love everything and everyone, radiate love from within your deepest self, because LOVE is the secret to happiness, love is all that should exist, not hate, greed, judgements, etc. Just pure, everlasting LOVE

        The Bible is incomplete. There is a significant gap between the Book of Malachi and the Book of Matthew along with other locations in the bible. There are over 80 books and there are more than 10 commandments excluded from the bible by Vatican and Roman Catholic church in the 1600s. I believe in God but have always felt the FULL truth wasn’t being told when referring to the bible. All churches are systematic…none seek the whole truth or question teaching that’s been passed on.

  • Kandrea Hudson

    I’ve been searching all night for something written by a brother in Christ who has a clear understanding of the word. I recently stumbled upon kemetic teachings and the IUIC. I wanted to know what your thoughts were on kemetic teachings since they also discredit the word for the African American people in particular. Thank you God bless.

    • dlundy1

      Hey Kandrea, thanks for your comment. However to address your question — Kemetic teachings are just like any other [false] Religion. However this ideology actually has nothing to do with “Blacks” in general — instead It simply teaches the worship of many “gods”. In fact, many of Egyptian kings were considered “gods” according to kemetic teachings.

      Here is an excerpt from kemet.org/faq
      “Only three pharaohs (from Kemetic per-a’a, or “great house,” name of the royal residence) deified themselves during life. These three “god-kings” were Amenhotep IV (called Akhenaten) and Ramses II of the New Kingdom, and Cleopatra VII of the Ptolemaic-Roman Period.”

      But although I could elaborate more, I will be brief. This ideology believes that MEN can be “gods”. However this is the same ideology held by occultists, Satanists, New Ager’s, and the Illuminati. Furthermore this Ideology is just one of many that were adopted by many in the “Black Supremacy” movement in order to exalt the black race above other races. However it has close ties with Satanism.

      Also, I am sure that if you ever hear someone talking about this, they will probably say that Christianity is the “White Man’s” Religion — However nowhere in the Bible does it indicate that the Characters (or Jesus) was white. This is just how they are portrayed. However no matter whether white or black — It doesn’t matter. God doesn’t see color, and we must learn to do the same.

      But I would encourage you to be cautious about what ideas you entertain, sometimes the false information contained New Age, Kemetic Teachings, Islam, and many other world religions and philosophies will shake the Faith of a Christian if they are not firmly Planted in the word. Satan is a deceiver, and if he managed to deceive 1/3 of the Heavenly angels — then Humans don’t stand a chance UNLESS we allow the Spirit of God to lead us. This is why the Bible tells Christians not to lean on our OWN understanding, but to trust God. (Proverbs 3:5). This is because our minds are Limited. In addition, they are not very reliable — we make mistakes all the time. But I pray that you stay encouraged through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. and if you have any more questions, feel free to email me. Deon(at)DeonVsEarth(dot)com

    it all comes down to who you believe Jesus is. just read matthew, mark, luke, and john — if his words ring true to your spirit, then it doesn’t matter what race or color he was, because he is the savior of all people, regardless of race.
    will it matter if i get to heaven and discover that Jesus didn’t look like the most common artistic depiction of him by european artists? of course not.
    all that matters is that our sins are forgiven by his act of sacrifice here on earth, so it is unfair to reject him as “the white man’s God,” or as a eurocentric icon used to control slaves. that is a misrepresentation, and we shouldn’t fall for it.
    for 2000 years, many people have misused scripture for their own selfish purposes. those people will have to answer for their actions on judgement day. don’t let a hypocrite stand between you and God.

  • Shakur Stewart

    I don’t believe in the Bible. No human of ancient times were able to hear or see anything from this supposedly God that people in moderns days wouldn’t be able to see. In other words, how did they get these commandments and clear descriptions of who and what God does and what he wanted from the people and then they get a chance to write it on paper, when people nowadays can barely even receive a sense of this supposedly God, even if they give strong focus to hear and see things from this God. The Bible sounds like schizophrenia to me. Superstition. Strong belief without facts, that they manipulate and force onto others. There is something that brought us here, but it’s far beyond a humans understanding. The creator couldn’t have died because in the universe, there are new stars, galaxies, and planets coming about everyday. Karma is fiction. We all will share the same experiences whether we are good or bad. As in , good people receiving bad things happening to them and good things happening for the bad people, vice versa… Bad things happening to the bad and good things happening to the good. No way around such the reality. I focus on our existence from a scientific point. From the elements and particle we are made up of and how it has to with connection to the Universe. In reality, we perceive death as no longer being. Actually we are always alive more than we know. Consciousness never dies. Humans think at a higher level than other animals, but we are still animal so don’t see yourself as something more important than a elephant, giraffe, etc.. we all are aware of life. No form of life knows not the happiness and struggles to life. Take a piece of paper, and with the right technology,,zoom in and see the atoms. Burn that paper,,zoom in again, the atoms are still there, but in different form… Like death, we go from one form to another. The Bible has been if not forced upon , has had a powerful influence on others. But remember. And trust and believe this. If you cannot explain how the whole universe has gotten here, which is so big that a human couldn’t even go to one end to the other, if there are even ends to it, then there is no way you can fully understand who, or what the true creator is. Love is the key, but Anger is also. All anger isn’t always bad. Just because you feel more on the wicked end of life because of emotions you don’t see as good ones, doesn’t make you satanic, or evil. The feelings came with life so why would they be a problem. We are like chemical reactions. The are just indicators. And yes, We will have to kill, fight, steel, etc. As far even doing the good things to survive. I can go on forever. It’s good to keep a balance, and spread Love. But love won’t stop a killer from killing. It will happen if you don’t kill them to save the possible victims. Good riddance, if you ever heard of that. With everything I know that is what makes us, Us. I say don’t worry about the creator. Just Live Life. Don’t worry about death. Do worry about maintaining yourself in a way that gets you food, clothing, and whatever you need for happiness. Reality is, we do not have a set purpose on this planet that was planned for us before birth. We are unique and have the ability to be great at something most wouldn’t, but there are still plenty who have just as great of a ability as you in whatever,,but will they do the same thing….No they will not.. Our purpose is our choice, a choice from within. You and Tyler might wanna consider working for companies due to being very very good at being critical thinkers, but will they choose to work for the same company. No, because of their views. Maybe Tyler doesn’t even wanna use his ability for companies. We are born unique, but our abilities as a person are most like nothing new under the Sun. Someone shares that of you. But will use it differently. That’s where creation comes in. What you create will be most likely the only thing that makes you stand out from other, if nobody else has created that whatever you create. Everything is an illusion. Not saying is not really there. It’s definitely there. But what you see and perceive. You have no clue of what really stands,sets,or fly in front of you. We are star dust of many atoms, chemicals and particle. A TV may seem lifeless but in the Universe, it’s it something,,,, the body of something, which makes it very alive because if was created just like you. We are one with everything see. The God of the Holy Bible is so small and inaccurate to what is really out of this World. People don’t know what else to believe in, so they suggest, or say to themselves,”Why not believe in this”. The Bible is like a very good impelling talent show. It’s so good and the ways it’s worded. It sounds intelligent. The Lord’s words in the Bible are said so indirect that it is amusing to most because of the way it sound when you read it.. this person speaks such mystery and powerful saying. At least you think it’s powerful when you know of nothing else…. Alot accept it, but some will critically think and question. Knowing God and what he does would not be that simple. The Bible is not of the world we live in.. just because something good happens doesn’t mean God blessed your life, and when bad things happen doesn’t mean you must pray and get right with God. That is pure superstition. That sounds so ridiculous. We do have vibrations. When we are at our most positive wavelength in life, we attract good things,and people to us. But that doesn’t stop the bad from coming. We have to protect ourselves jus as a gazelle would from a lion. No God is protecting you. You are either fittest or not. In life, we must just good all the good we can for whatever for our benefit. If you believe doing right, no killing, stealing etc. Be that you are. Survive in your population,environment,etc. That’s your way of living, but don’t expect others to live the same. There is a equal and opposite attaction all the time. Positive_Negative.. Boy_Girl.. Up_Down.. Left_Right….. Etc, you can go on forever… There will be good and bad moments no matter who you are, where you are. God doesn’t control these events. Your ability or disability to protect yourself in these events are what control the outcomes.. but One Last Thing. This would not be this bad if you couldn’t start over. It’s not fair. That why you are who you are and will be going where you go when your time is over in your current body,vessel, etc.. Death isn’t real. It’s like grand theft auto.. If you make a mistake, and make the wrong move die , you think the game would be over just like that ? In life. You actually believe, will the Universe being as big n great as it is. You think once your heart stop, and you go brain dead and can’t see light thru that body. You actually think you would never see daylight again. Maybe your next life wouldn’t consist of light, but of feel and instinct , but it’s OK… Consciousness never dies.. You will arrive again.

      Straight idiot bruh… Your contradiction is sickening. The funniest thing Eye read is when you tried to show the difference between the enslavement of our people to the Biblical slave. Like there is a difference. Find your Culture bruh.. and stop making excuses to be excepted. Your weak.. and anyone who follows will be led astray by you weak education of Truth and facts. Get ur head out of one book, and read real facts from those who actually lived.
      (You actually justified Leviticus.??!)

      • bamboodread

        Leviticus, along with most of the Bible, contain some of the cruelest and evilest texts ever written by man

    • Maruice Mitch

      you so stupid,its so much FACTS out there that would show you who the true bibilcal isreilites were.just seek and you will find,but most black are stuck in a dazy and to busy to read that some will continue to follow the devil into oblivion.

  • QudamahOlushagun

    You can take that Bible Christian, Jesus, who is none other then god the devil. Put it all where the sun don’t shine. I am just on the internet to see how unconsciously people really are. I have a ancient history that was past down to me. The time is right and I will soon be putting it out for everyone to see. There are people who know about it, but just don’t care to speak out. Every race on this planet earth did not always pray to a god. The Creator of all creation ment for all races to have their own space. Just like all the planets in the universe do. Time for a good true history to be wrote it will not stop Satan from being who they are. You’ll see devil’s die where ever you are.

      Even though you reject God, because of some blind deceptive spirit that is governing your life, God still loves you, and hopefully in this hour your heart and mind will be changed from a lie unto the truth…..but even if it don’t, know this one thing….God is still God whether you believe in Him or not, and at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, and tongue confess, that He is Lord and King.

  • IronRoses

    Due to unhappy or mean “Christian” relatives, I had serious doubts about the Christ and the Bible. I held these feelings in secret for the early years of my life despite being forced to attend church every Sunday. When I went off to college, I was done with church and God.

    Then some time later. I lost everything. All the material things and titles no longer brought me comfort. Even people including close relatives and trusted friends were gone. Mental and physical health were threatened. I had nothing. I was at a low I cannot even describe to this day.

    Just when all I knew and trusted had disappeared or betrayed me, a church hymn I hadn’t heard in decades entered my mind, like someone singing to me. I was stunned. Then I began to pray. The climb out of that dark hole of depression was hard and took a long time. But Christ was with me. I prayed. Over time, I was restored. When you have lost EVERYTHING you ever trusted (idolatry), you find out very quickly that God is everything and more than enough. Amen.

    Hmm, I’m familiar with your point and I understand what you are conveying but what makes the “Africans” who were enslaved ancestorally different from the Africand who stayed and are the ancestors of today’s West Africans? Living in West Africa, I’m sure the Hebrews, along with what you said, I’m sure the Hebrews will have assimilated with them over hundreds to a thousand years. I don’t think they isolated themselves for so long to the extent that they are exclusively the Hebrew Israellite’s descendants. I’m sure of that because its known African slaves had west African customs, names and fragments of that traditional religion which can be seen in the Americas today.

  • Kimberly York

    The Bible is a book written by black people.

    The Israelites were only compared physically to the ancient Egyptians and Ethiopeans–both black people groups.

    The nations was birthed in Africa.

    The language is Afro-asiatic.

    White skin was considered abhorrent to the children of Jacob, as it was considered unclean, infectious and a severe judgment of the most high. Turning white would get you put out of the camp and the priest would have to investigate to see if you were not infected. Every person who got leprosy TURNED WHITE being cursed. The servant of Elijah,
    Gehazi was cursed with leprosy and all his descendants–and he departed, white as snow.

    The totality of the curses of Deuteronomy 28 only happened to the bantu/negro people as they were shipped to the four corners because of disobedience and sin. No white nation satisfies all the narratives of the curse.

    Shem was black, so was Ham and Japheth.
    White skin is found to be defective genetically. Black people can produce white people, white people can only genetically create ONLY white people. They are a branch of a black branch.

    I am sick of white people stealing our history and pretending to be us. Leprosy and its symptoms lets you know the Israelites were dark skinned people.

    • Michael Lamont

      This is ridiculous… There’s a perfectly good argument for Jews being black, ill admit that.. It however, doesn’t matter if Jesus was black or white!! His message is the same!! For those who believe he died and bared our sins will be saved!! If you want, you can be the chosen people, and with that comes with you being the same people that took the life of Jesus Christ.. Being chosen does not grant you a ticket into heaven.. Believing he is God and gave his life for us does… Yours truly, a white guy.

      • Maruice Mitch

        @micheal of course it dont matter about his skin color when we speak that god is white only when we say he is BLACK then his skin color doesnt matter,and actually it does matter,if you read the bible its letting you know who is his chosen people and who are the DEVIL,so when you have comparsion and you speak about your chosen people and the devil i think the BIBLE matters,so who are you.

        • Michael Lamont

          What I’m trying to tell you is that I follow the creator of heaven and the earth whether he is black or white simply because he is for the greater good.. those that want to insinuate racism and always need to point out color are the ones that are indeed racist… if you want to eliminate racism, remove the questionnaire on all documents asking what race we are, fully staff police departments with full diversity…eliminate race bating tv programs such as black entertainment.. make the kkk illegal and punishable.. take reverend Jackson and others that push the racism so

    • Michael Lamont

      And another thing… Stop all the hate.. That was not God’s message.. It was love.. My skin color is not a reason to hate me the same reason yours is not a reason for me to hate you. Hate is spreading across this country.. That’s what needs to be fixed.. Not our skin color.

  • Fontaine Foster

    Europeans are descendants of Romans and Greeks who translated the bible from its original text…..to infer that they had nothing to do with the bible at its current state, leads me o believe you haven’t researched the actual history of the bible….

  • Ashar

    I think it’s definitely word of God, but the white man changed it to fit their agenda

    • bamboodread

      “I think” is a million miles from “I know.”

  • bamboodread

    So who created your “creator” if it wasn’t “man?” Are you getting some knowledge from somewhere that I am not privy to?

    • QudamahOlushagun

      Bambodread I hope you will be ready when Knowledge come to you and you will stop following a man made god or someone who want to play you.

      • bamboodread

        I don’t follow a single god out of the thousands made up

  • ERW

    Very well written, sir. Another difference between ancient slavery and the shameful American slavery was that many slaves of the Greco-Roman world were very well educated and often became the teachers of their masters’ children. Paul used the schoolmaster/tutor analogy to describe the purpose of the Old Testament (Galatians 3:24).

  • chondra

    Yes I do believe that the bible was manipulated to enslave blacks I also believe that bible was manipulated into the European language. 1. There are curtain words used and letter used in the bible that wasn’t part of the alphabet or language until after the death of Christ. If you go back to when the story of Roots was told you will see how it was taught to the slave that reading of any kind was a curse to black people and that blacks was not permitted read believe its what GOD said in the bible. Now I look at the holiday I did my research for the past 20 years about how the holiday was created and how blacks celebrated holiday well to my surprise these holiday are based on the Pegans. Well celebrate December 25 as the day Christ was born this is untrue.

  • chondra

    As a Woman of and a descendant of African heritage I believe that we served a different God I do not believe that the old testament and the new testament was was already here. I believe that the Europeans created the new and old testaments why well who could translate the language that was spoken back in that era to the English language.

  • Original Queen

    It’s time to regain our heritage from the white devils and take our places as the Queens and Kings black people were created to be. The SECRET is out. LET’S GET IN FORMATION !!!

  • Original Queen

    Well before the king James version which excludes the original (black) people. Whitewashing is real…enlighten yourself with real history of the world.

  • Ysrael dmoney

    Black people are not africans two differnt people we are the real hebrew jews.

  • Reader

    Deon,
    Perhaps one of the most stirring of passages to me is Acts 10:34-35:

    “Then Peter Opened his mouth and said, ‘Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted of Him’ ”

    Booker T. Washington sought throughout his life to be known as Christian, as well did George Washington Carver.

    The slave holders knew that men ought be free and could not accomplish their evil work without first enslaving the minds of their unfortunate subjects. They also deprived them of any right of self defense, a right given by God to the meanest insects of the natural world.

    Thankfully, out of every nation there continue men who fear God and work righteousness, men such as Frederick Douglass and others like him.

    Two other favorite passages of mine are Deuteronomy 23:15-16, and Job 31:13-15. The compassion of God was not to be lost by His people. Job has the wonderful approbation of God who testified of him as a righteous man without equal.

    I believe President Lincoln was informed and framed his life accordingly to lift not only slaves above their misery of cruelty, harshness, and oppression, but as a beacon instilled in others to worship God and end the wicked practice.

    Sadly, there yet remain men who are enslaved to the bitter seeds of hatred and will not approach the glorious Gospel of Christ.

    Let us pray that the holiness of the Lord shall be an evidence of our lives.

    God bless you.
