Black Spirituality Religion : Why Do Black Americans Put So Much Faith In Christianity?

For the last 500 years, people of African descent have been conditioned into following the concepts of Eurocentric Christiainity. It’s important to know that Christiany is based on the spiriual concepts and philosophy of Ma’at. For example, the the Ten Commandments are merely a condensed version of the The 42 Affirmations of Ma'at.
True

To meaure the effectiveness of the "Christian Way" on we Black people, we need only to examine our present condition as individuals and as a people. We have not progressed much since Christianity became our understanding of spiritual things. Our spiritual development has been arrested. Think about it, "Why did they give us this religion, when their goal was to keep us enslaved for all time?"
I do not agree...That Western European Christianity is the Leading contributing factor in Our Oppression and continued Repression.
Christianity as a tool of oppression played a minor and very ineffectively....It quickly became a source of Hope and a outlet of Expression.
Westernize Christianity was used to ease or assuage the conscience of the Oppressors....with the idea that it would quell or quench the desires of the enslave for Liberty.

The Primary and Major Reason for Our Enslavement and Oppression has been and Continues to be at Root Economic.
The Secondary Reason is Political, as in Maintaining Power in the Hands of those who control the Means of Production and the Levers of Distribution of so called Scarce Resources.
The Tertiary Reason is Scientific Racism which provided the so called Rational and Logical basis on which the two forgoing reason stands.



We as a people and as individuals suffer from the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS), epigenetics, social conditioning, emotional, mental distress and spiritual ignorance. We have trouble telling the difference between the real from the unreal and between the Truth and falsehoods.
True

I feel that we Black people should put Sankofa into action. We should find out the truth about how our African ancestors lived when things were good for them. Once we find out these things, ,such as Ma’at, we can then ressurect them in our own lives as individuals, which will have a positive effect on us as a people.

I do not question looking to the Past for Guidance and Groundings...
Not so much to resurrect..but maybe to Renew.

Ase'!
 
The Bible says that God created everything in six days and rested on the seventh day.
Yes, that's what the bible says.

If this is true, how did God create heaven and earth?
God Spoke them into Existence.

Did he make them out of nothing?
Not really....God made them out of Herself.


How could something come from nothing?
You mean like the Big Bang?
Create Means to bring into Existence...ex nihilo
 
I have heard a few people say that christianity is an Afrikan religion. I am curious, how did anyone come to that conclusion? If you are referring to the northeast part of the continent i.e. Egypt, Ethiopia, etc I can see a probability. If you are talking about sub-Saharan Afrika, I would love to know the source of such information.
