Thanks Isaiah for this forum. It's strange that I came across it at this time. Months ago, I tuned into a documentary on "Slavery in New York" in which a black man was put on a CROSS and his body was slowly roasted. Although this man had commited no iniquity, he was LED TO THE SLAUGHTER LIKE A LAMB. these are the TRUE ONES WHO DIED FOR OUR SINS SO THAT WE MAY HAVE LIFE. I say this because recently, I watched Passions of the Christ. I had no interest in wanting to watch it, but I was curious as to what someone saw in it, to die of a heart attack. Then my cousins told me it was so deep and they were full of despair blah blah blah. So I watched it over my sisters house. It took me 3 times (sorry it was boring) to get through it. When they came to the part where Jesus was getting beaten, I thought SO WHAT!! He only endured 3 days and my people endured a life time. Then he was CRUCIFIED which was normal back in that period, and there were two thieves next to him. If this mortal MAN was dying for our sins, how come he didn't perform a miracle and have those thieves just slide on off the cross so that THEY COULD LIVE too! (Who knows, they might of let them go, but I probably snoozed durning that part too) It amazes me how when we talk to our people about the crimes against our people, they say, that was then, this is now and to forget it. But they make a weekly ritual to be up in the church screamin, crying, rollin down the aisles, foamin at the mouth in rememberance of this man who died and they still waitin for him to come and save them. We have been truly posessed by a foul spirit and idol worship is at an all time high!! Because that's all it is. We were NEVER supposed to create an image (they created it-we accepted it) of God and worship it or we would be led astray and our enemies would be able to control us. I'm so tired of every time, something goes good for a black person they say "Ooooh it ain't nothin but the blood of Jesus"! I'd love to go into a church and grieve my ancestors on a weekly and pay tribute to them and the blood they lost, so that I may have life!
