    The short version: Every since I was a little I just knew that one of my purposes in life was to become a minister. My faith was my passion. I loved the lord with all my heart. I didn't like tradition or the caucasion tradition at all. It was pagan to me, but as a young child you do as you were told. When I became an adult I was more drawn to judaism but still they didn't follow the torah exactly, so I was stuck for along time. Until my brother, my dear dear brother recanted my teaching of Africa. Then I began to research. I'm 29 now I have studied the bible backwards and forwards along with the quaran (my family is 50% muslim and the rest are sects of christianity). I was a christian. I believe in god, but through the facts all the religions have a root and it is Africa. I am upset at myself that I ignored what my father tried to tell me instead I listened to the southern baptist preacher who explained how Africans were all idol worshippers and other things. Why? Why are people afraid? Not just white but black people also, why should we be afraid? I am proud of the wisdom I have now, for so long I kept my eyes closed and now I can see. Thanks for letting me share my short version with you. I'm still searching for facts about ancient africans so if anyone can enlighten me further I would deeply appreciate it.

    Be wise as you study and search for truth.
    From what I have seen and studied there is a war taking place at this very moment and it is between Polytheist and Monotheist.

    This is the same war that divided and conquered Egypt and caused the final downfall of the greatest nation that has ever existed and had the longest time of existing.

    Every Monotheistic community of One GOD has been attacked or destroyed by Polytheist and those same people run the earth today. But GOD has promised us a day when their foot shell slip and they shall be snared in their own traps and be taken by their own gods of lesser being.

    Deut:7:25: The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the LORD thy God.

    Very Wonderful to have you on 'Board' Sistah!

    I read what you said, and you have a lot of good points. Further, I will go on to tell you that there are a few of us here who like you, used to follow "preecha' man, as he mis-lead us into Modern-day bondage, but now we are Free!

    I am quite exhausted right now, so I can not give 'juicy' facts as of now. However, in the meantime, I will recommend these sources to you Sistah:
