During the period of American slavery, Christian slave owners used the Christian bible to justify the enslavement of “black” and the original native American people! After slavery was outlawed, it was repackaged in the Christian Southern states by implementing a peonage system (aka debt slavery or debt servitude) which was outlawed in 1867 and was repackaged by implementing a convict lease system in which black men, women and children were illegally imprisoned and leased to private railways, mines, and large plantations. While states profited, prisoners earned no pay and faced inhumane, dangerous, and often deadly work conditions. This truth was never mentioned when I was a youth in “Sunday School” and was never taught through my adult years when I attended countless Sundays and sometimes Wednesdays in “church”. To be honest, my curiosity wasn’t aroused until approximately 10 years ago as I began to realize that God isn’t a religion. God commands us TO BE HOLY, He never commanded anyone to be a Christian or any other religion. Genesis 9:18-27 among other scriptures was used to justify slavery, and due to the elaborate brainwashing system implemented by those who offered themselves up to be used by Satan is still believed by many Christians today as the reason and justification of inhumane treatment of non Caucasian people.
“And the sons of Noah that went forth from the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole world overspread. And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: and he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.”Genisis 9:18
Reviewing the work of the white Christian churches, Frederick Douglass had this to say: “Between the Christianity of this land and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference—so wide that to receive the one as good, pure, and holy, is of necessity to reject the other as bad, corrupt, and wicked. To be the friend of the one is of necessity to be the enemy of the other. I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ; I therefore hate the corrupt, slave-holding, women-whipping, cradle-plundering, partial and hypocritical Christianity of this land. Indeed, I can see no reason but the most deceitful one for calling the religion of this land Christianity…”
There is no commandment for Yah’s children to join any religious group, including (especially) Christianity! However, we are commanded to BE HOLY.
For I am the Lord your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy. And you shall not make yourselves unclean with any of the swarming things that swarm on the earth
For I am the Lord who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God; thus you shall be holy, for I am holy.’”
Thus you are to be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy; and I have set you apart from the peoples to be Mine.
According to James as written in the book of James in the Christian bible, “The religion that is accepted by Elohim, Our Father as pure and faultless is to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world (Be Holy).
The Christianity religion is filed with idolatrous Jesus worship, Mary worship, pastor worship and other pseudo worship instead of worshiping the God of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob the One true God of Israel. The God of the Hebrews was not, is not, and never will be Jesus and it is sad to see so many Native Americans and African Americans still slaves to a strange god and a strange religion. Today’s Christian religious groups embrace the LGBTQ movement, abortion, immodesty, infidelity and all other abominable practices and excuse them with the “No One Is Perfect” manipulation ministry, not to mention they have replaced the God of Abraham with Jesus!
God commanded us to be holy-not perfect, though the two are closely related -C.S. Thomas
