OSHUN THE AFRICAN GODDESS OF BEAUTY, LOVE, PROSPERTIY, ORDER, AND FERTILITY – BY JIDE UWECHIA

It is said that “Oshun is beneficient and generous, and very kind. She does, have a malevolent and tempestuous temper, although it is difficult to anger her.”

It is said that “Oshun has excellent cooking skills.”

OSHUN THE AFRICAN GODDESS OF BEAUTY, LOVE, PROSPERTIY, ORDER, AND FERTILITY: A PRAISE TO OUR ORGINAL AFRICAN MATRIARCH – By: JIDE UWECHIA

Oshun is the Mother of the African sweet or fresh waters. In her form as the mother of salt waters, she is known as Yemaya.

Like Egyptian Isis and later Greek Diana, Osun is the goddess of love and is widely beloved. She is known for healing the sick, cheering the sad, bringing music, song and dance, as well as bringing fertility and prosperity.

She is the protector of the poor, the mother of all orphans, she is the one who brings them what they need in this life through periods of weakness or strenght.

Like Queen Isis of the Ancient Egyptian Kemitic Pantheon, Oshun was taught the art of divination with the cowrie shells, cards, tarots, visions, possessions, songs, chants and meditations by her father Obatala, the first of the created gods.

Like Isis, She brought the teaching of divinations, mysticism, agriculture and culture to humans. She is known as the mother of the fishes of the seas and the birds of the forest. Isis used to be represented as the mother of the fishes and the Queen of the seas.

Oshun is the essence of love, sweetness and good cheer, beauty and flowing joy.

Among the Yorubas of West Africa, She is also known as Yalode- the mother of things outside the home or the mother of wealth, due to her business acumen.

She is also known as Laketi, “She who responds”, because of how quickly and effectively she answers prayers.

Possession of her devotees is one of her principal manifestation and in such states, devotees are filled with clarity, confidence, joy, love, bliss and laugher. Yet, they are filled at the same times with the terrible aspects of her power which activates to fight injustice against humanity and irreverence against the gods.

It has been said that “When She possesses her followers she dances, flirts and then weeps- because no one can love her enough and the world is not as beautiful as she knows it could possibly be.”

The peacock and the vulture are sacred to Her. Offerings to Oshun could be in form of songs, chantings, meditating on her name, devotion to her love, and/or adherence with her compassionate laws.

Her manifestations of love include being the source of all fresh waters, all warmth, all knowledge, all culture, all society, all motherhood, prosperity, fertility of the land and the water.

Food offerings could include sweet things such as fresh water, honey, mead, white wine, oranges, sweets, or pumpkins, as well as essential oils and incense.

THE MANY DIMENSIONS AND MOODS OF OSUN

In the high Yoruba mystical teachings, Oshun has many roads, or dimensions and some of these include:

Osun the Queen of Witches:

Oshun Ibu Ikole — Oshun the Vulture. This dimension of Oshun is (as was Isis of ancient Kemitic Egypt and the later Greek Diana) associated with Witches (Aje). Her symbols include the vulture, and the mortar and pestle (both of which are symbols of witchcraft).

Witchcraft in Africa is a high science practised by a few who are fortunate enough to have the time and resources to acquire that science of life. The science is so powerful that the adepts are reputed to have powers over life and death and the ability to deliver their will and affect reality as they wish.

It is said today that this power of witchraft is abused in today’s Africa. We cannot comment other than to ask those who make accusations to take a look at their inner most thoughts ensure that those thoughts are sincere.

The craft is a neutral science that can be deployed to serve what ever ends. But a disciplined and well educated practitioner of the craft is a great help to whatever community he or she lives in. For she carries on the beneficience of her chief goddess, Osun, quietly, loyally and annonymously waxing love and judicious judgement in line with the omni-potent and the omni-present will of the beloved lady, blessed Osun.

Oshun the Diviner, Sophia Wisdom

Oshun Ololodi — Oshun, the diviner. Oshun is a particularly sensous goddess and has been associated with many lover and husbands. In her form of the diviner She is the wife or lover of Orunmila, the first prophet of Ifa divination.

It is said that Oshun’s father Obatala the first of the among the Gods (similar to the Amen of New Testament Book of Revelations Chapter 1 verse 18. He bequeathed unto Her the secret of divination and mysticsm just live Kemitic Father Ra(s) bequeathed unto daughter Isis the secret of divination and mysticm.

As such Oshun has the key and the secrets of Ifa, the fount of sacred wisdom. Oshun is then a synonym for Wisdom.

In the Old Testament Book of Proverbs Chapter 3 Verse 13 to 18, this beautiful praise of Oshun is embedded in the Bible under her Holy name Wisdom, or Sophia (the Greek goddess name used in the original Septuagint Greek New Testament Bible), which is of the same roots and essence as the Yoruba Ifa. It goes as follows:

13. Happy is the man that findeth [wisdom/sophia] Osun, and the man that getteth understanding [of her arts and science].

14. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

15. [She] Oshun is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

16. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.

17. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

18. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

See King James Version.

Osun the beautiful and the Sensual

In the Yoruba/Cuban pantheon of gods and goddess, Oshun is represented as a beautiful, charming and coquettish young woman, often with long flowing dreadlocks. In some tales She is said to be a mermaid, with a fish’s tail, in other more urban legends some claim She is the equivalent of Mami-water.

With Oshun there are no sensual repressions and inhibitions. She is a leader in Her father’s house. She is an independent woman, a matri-focal and androgynous matriarch.

Unlike the Roman catholic neutered and denatured “Virgin Maria”, Osun our mother, the Empress is a passionate and hot-blooded woman. Lover of many accomplished princes and gods, Her symbolism recalls days of strong women principalites who were rich, powerful knowledge enough to have many men dangling by her strings. Oshun has had affairs with Erinle, Orunmila, Oshosi, Orisha Oko, and Aje-Shaluga. She is also the sexual partner of Shango, and Ogun.

She was at one time the wife of Shango, the storm god, as was Oya, the goddess of the winds and tempests. There are many interesting stories about the romantic, passionate inter rivalry that existed between Oshun and Oya. In fact a certain confluence of two rivers at a rapid in one of the wetern state of Nigeria is named after Osun and Oya due to the intimidating turbulence that marks the point of intersetion.

In the Yoruba/Cuban religious view Osun is associated with the color yellow, the important metals gold and copper, peacock feathers, mirrors, and anything of charm, lightness, beauty and sweet taste. Her best day of the week is Saturday and her favourite number is 5.

  1. Thank you for sharing this wonderful meditation on Our Lady Oshun. I was wondering if coconut would be an acceptable offering to make to Our Lady. I have been working on an important request to Our Lady Oshun and had the feeling to offer sweetened coconut shreds, but I do not know if this is a food of Our Lady’s liking.

  2. I cooked some yams today sweetened with cinnamon, sugar and after it was cooked I drizzled honey over it. It is my first cooked offering besides oranges. Im happy I did that today. Blessed day all

  3. OSHUN CHOSE ME VIA A DREAM. SINCE I HAVE EXCEPTED HER SHE HASN’T LEFT ME SINCE!! THE MOST FAITHFUL WOMAN IVE ENCOUNTERED.

  4. I also see this in the King James Version: Deuteronomy 18 : 10 – 13 (10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

    11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

    12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

    13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.)

    1. Kings James Version is a fairy tale book. Why would anyone take it seriously?

      Besides, it full of homosexuality, child molestation, rape, robbery and pillage. All of these it deems pure by the authority and power of Yahwa your god.

      1. Don’t forget bestiality, war, racism, slavery, genocide, murder were all ordained by the Christian god and is also in keeping with European cultural practices and beliefs. Even their god Jesus was born in a barn along with animals.

        During slavery, the Europeans never gave us good food, good clothing, good shelter or good education, now why on earth did they give us such a good religion? I have a problem accept a belief system that is suppose to be based on moral and ethics from immoral and unethical people. Reading the bible is proof enough why black people should not be Christians unless they have short memories. It was white Christians who were raping and murdering Native American children in residential schools well up until the 1990s. It was white Christians who were hanging black people from trees, tying them to their carts/buggies, tying them to cars and dragging them to their deaths. It was white Christians who were burning black babies, drowning black babies, feeding black babies to dogs. It was white Christians who were hunting black people like animals. It was white Christians that caused the black people to loose a sense of self and identity. The seven African Powers are part of the African identity. Voodoo is not witchcraft but I do believe Christianity is evil. Christianity is white supremacy. Christianity is white male/people worship. The three monotheistic religion are extremely racist and anti black. Why on earth does any black person would want to be part of such hypocrisy? You cannot even worship in the same place as white Christians. Are you going to a separate heavens, too? I hope so because there are some white Christians who are ready to lynch you blacks if you enter into the same heaven as them.

    1. Ok, see below.

      NU stands for the book Numbers. DT stands for the book of Deutronomy. The Bible:

      NU 31:9 The Israelites capture Midianite women and children.

      NU 31:17-18 Moses, following the Lord’s command, orders the Israelites to kill all the Midianite male children and “… every woman who has known man ….” (Note: How would it be determined which women had known men? One can only speculate.)

      NU 31:31-40 32,000 virgins are taken by the Israelites as booty. Thirty-two are set aside (to be sacrificed?) as a tribute for the Lord.

      DT 2:33-34 The Israelites utterly destroy the men, women, and children of Sihon.

      DT 3:6 The Israelites utterly destroy the men, women, and children of Og.

      DT 7:2 The Lord commands the Israelites to “utterly destroy” and shown “no mercy” to those whom he gives them for defeat.

      DT 20:13-14 “When the Lord delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the males …. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves.”

      DT 20:16 “In the cities of the nations the Lord is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes.”

      DT 21:10-13 With the Lord’s approval, the Israelites are allowed to take “beautiful women” from the enemy camp to be their captive wives. If, after sexual relations, the husband has “no delight” in his wife, he can simply let her go.

      1. I have to explain that Yahuwah was dealing with a particular group of people whom He had already explained the rules (the children of Israel). He specifically instructed them not to worship any other deities.

        Exodus 20: 2- 5 show this: 2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,
        out of the house of bondage.
        3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
        4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above,
        or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
        5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God,
        visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that
        hate me;

        The Midianites were a group of people who came about when Abraham went with Keturah, a
        Canaanite. This group of people worshipped other deities and did not like the children of Israel. They wanted to put a curse on the children of Israel and fight them.

        Numbers 22: 3 – 7 show this: 3 And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they were many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel.
        4 And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at that time.
        5 He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me:
        6 Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.
        7 And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam, and spake unto him the words of Balak.

        During that time, Israel was obedient and they ended up being blessed by Balaam (Numbers 23: 7-10, 18 -24; 24: 5 -9, 15 -24). They were still living in the wilderness with their tents set up. For, the book of Numbers in Hebrew is “Midbar”/“Wilderness”.

        However, the children of Israel began to worship other deities when they came nearer to the promised land. The men brought in women who ensnared them to worship their deities.

        Numbers 25: 1- 3 say, “1 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with
        the daughters of Moab.
        2 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
        3 And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.”

        Also, Numbers 25: 6, 17 -18 say, “6 And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

        17 Vex the Midianites, and smite them:
        18 For they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain in the day of the plague for Peor’s sake.”

        This group of people ensnared the children of Israel with their deities. Behind every deity is a demon, an evil spirit or a devil. Where there are demons, there are problems galore. They affect the family, the community and the nation.
        In a way, those women were used just like the modern day M-I5 and M-I6 to ensnare them.

        So, Yahuwah had to rid Israel of those snares (Numbers 31: 1-8, 10 – 17).

        It is best to read above and below a verse and/or the whole chapter of a book in order to get the complete story. Misinterpretation can occur if this method is not done.

        In those cultures, I am sure there were signs on a woman who was to be married, married and single. There are examples in the Bible that reflect this.

        Genesis 24:47 shows this concerning Rebekah betrothal to Isaac: 47 And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou? And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor’s son, whom Milcah bare unto him: and I put the earring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands.

        2 Samuel 13:18 displays an example of an unmarried woman: 18 And she had a garment of divers colours upon her: for with such robes were the king’s daughters that were virgins apparelled. Then his servant brought her out, and bolted the door after her.

        Ezekiel 16: 8-14 also show in a descriptive manner the signs of being taken.

        As for Numbers 31: 31-40, the tribute of persons was probably where they had them as servants for the rest of their lives. They counted them and moved them about as needed in the camp.
        In this particular scripture, the Hebrew word for tribute is “mekes” which means to enumerate, an assessment based on a census.

        Yahuwah does not condone human sacrifice. He came against it in Leviticus 18:21: 21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

        Genesis 22: 2- 13 show that Yahuwah is against human sacrifice. He was testing Abraham’s faith: 2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
        3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
        4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
        5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.
        6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
        7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
        8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
        9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
        10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
        11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
        12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
        13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

        As for Deuteronomy, it says in chapter 2: 32, “32 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz.” That shows Sihon attacked the children of Israel. Israel had to defend herself.

        In ancient cultures, if a nation kills off the grown-ups in war and leaves the children, usually the children grow up and revenge.

        Deuteronomy 3: 1 – 3 shows that this nation came against the children of Israel so that they had to defend themselves: 1 Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.
        Deu 3:2 And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.
        Deu 3:3 So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.”

        As for Deuteronomy 7:2, all of the nations with the exception of one initiated battle with the children of Israel, thus, leaving them no option but to defend themselves.

        Numbers 21:1 -2 states: 1 And when king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south, heard tell that Israel came by the way of the spies; then he fought against Israel, and took some of them prisoners.
        2 And Israel vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou wilt indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities.

        Joshua 11: 19 gives an idea of how the nations were towards Israel: 19 There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all other they took in battle.

        Deuteronomy 20: 10 -12 shows, “10 When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it.
        11 And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee.
        12 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it: “

        Even though it says, “…to fight against it” concerning the city in verse 10, the main focus was that Israel came to proclaim peace in the first place. Also, this was concerning cities further from the land that they were to occupy. Those cultures exalted their males and they were the strength of their armies. So, strategically, they were to be killed off during war.

        I must admit, Deuteronomy 21: 10 -13 reminds me of how the “black” man took over certain parts of where the white man attacked them and WENT with the WHITE women there making mixed offspring today.

        I noticed on this site that there are approved uploaded posts that proclaim that a group of “blacks” are the Hebrew Israelites/Israelis, yet the historical book about them is rejected. I also noticed that if the other beliefs are sound and true how come the “black” people on this earth are still experiencing injustices, killings, thefts and destructions? Why those deities who are most defended have the world in the same rut as PREDICTED in the Bible? Why are they not interfering in the “black” people’s lives to rid the world NOW of the “weitkos” or “tamahus”?

        I also notice that some “black” people like to claim that the Bible is the white man’s creation just to worship stones, sticks and demons that would put them in more bondage.
        Yet, they conveniently take excerpts from it to fit their needs.

        There is a video that I witness a while back concerning “Left Eye” Lopes. She was into numerology and Egyptology. Yet, on that video, paranormal things were occurring left and right in her life.
        As you know, she was killed in a car crash.

        The Bible is proven scientifically, archaeologically, spiritually and historically.

        How is it that on this site, E1b1a and E1b1b are claimed as the haplogroups for being Hebrew which are reflected in the flow and movement of them throughout the world, yet the Bible is claimed to be of a “pink penis god”?

        How come the Haitians are in a terrible rut now from the time they used Vodoun to free themselves from the French? They should be the PEARL of the Caribbean. Why they have to pay France reparations for their freedom like an inane group of people?

        Noah’s Ark has been found in the mountains of Ararat near Turkey. It has been on display for people to see. Thousands of sulphur pellets encrusted in slabs of rocks about the size of an ovary have been found in the former cities of Sodom and Gomorrah confirming the Biblical story (Genesis 19:24). Mount Sinai is located in Arabia with the evidence of a mountain scorched black at the top. The officials there know about it and have it guarded for archaeological evidence.

        These stories in the Bible are not fables. They are true. They are backed up by a lot of physical evidence.

        Even the Assyrian relief was uploaded on this site as evidence of the Hebrew people going into captivity due to their rebellion against Yahuwah as written in the Bible.

        1. Is this supposed to be some justification of Yahwah’s atrocities? No JB546 that is one lame apologia.

          Recall your god Yahwah once said that he is Yahwah, and he makes both good and evil, and no evil can set forth or manifest but with his permission.

          Your god Yahwah is evil. He also claims he has good in him. That remains to be seen when he willingly sacrificed his own son (to whom did he make the sacrifice..) so that his “blood” will redeem the earth. But we all know that it is love, kindness and goodness that redeems the earth.

          Bro, do even let me tell you moor. Use your own reasoning. If you can’t see, then you can’t see it.

          Jahdey

          1. ” I also noticed that if the other beliefs are sound and true how come the “black” people on this earth are still experiencing injustices, killings, thefts and destructions?”

            And I have met black people who take the whole Christianity bullshit alot more seriously than the pinks who taught it to them. Why is it that those black Christians are experiencing violence and injustices? Is it because your pink penis god do not love them like he loves his pink children? I know black Christians who are more faithful to Jesus Christ than they are to their own families, yet they experience racism and all kinds of atrocities at the hands of whites. These black Christians still have the slave mentally which states that they are deserving of this kind of punishment because their skin is dark.

            Does the bible hold black people back from reaching the highest potential? Yes. I cannot tell you what is going on in Haiti. You seem to be confusing religious practices with witchcraft. Voodoo and other African religions are not all witchcraft. People are not worshipping demons. Voodoo is older than Christianity. Christianity is white supremacy. Christianity is white male worship.

            Why is there so much wealth in western nations yet the people are poor in spirit, empty, selfish, greedy and evil? No where in history has any practitioners of African spirituality went around the world murdering, raping and pillaging for resources. I would rather be poor and happy than to be rich and miserable. There are many poor and destitute in Western nations. Why is that if they are all Christians and good?

          2. You are right about He creates both good and evil. I too discovered that clearly.
            From what I gathered though is that He creates evil to His people’s enemies.
            If a person viciously attacks a person in whatever form who is serving Him, he creates evil against that person who does the attacking.
            What I gather is that He will allow the demons/ evil spirits to attack that person. Negative situations may occur in that person’s life. If that person does not repent and ask Him for forgiveness, that person will suffer the consequences.
            He brings about judgment and He sometimes uses people to bring that about.
            Yes, He allows things to occur in a believer’s life that we as humans may question, get furious about or discouraged. He orchestrates things that will work out (Romans 8:28).
            The part about His Son giving His life for the world so that the world might be saved is His method. Yahushuah (Jesus) resurrected Himself through His Holy Spirit. He has the power.
            He created the Universe.
            We as humans cannot redeem ourselves from the curse of sin. Yahushuah (Jesus) died on the cross, was buried in a tomb, and resurrected to redeem the world meaning people. Their souls are what He cares about.
            Deuteronomy 7: 8 -11 explains more about Himself.
            No, I am not a moor. However, I know that Moors are the ones who were before the ones who became Muslim and conquered southern Europe. I know that they use their given power in the USA to not be subjected to the system.
            John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
            Matthew 11:28 states, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

            It is your option to not believe. That is your right.

        2. ” I also noticed that if the other beliefs are sound and true how come the “black” people on this earth are still experiencing injustices, killings, thefts and destructions?” Are black people the only ones subjected to the above? There are people in Western countries who are not black and are subjected to the above situations, what is your explanation for these happenings? All across the globe where ever the Europeans have landed, they left death and destruction in their wake. You have only your god to blame for that. Many of the black people you are referring to are Christians and I pity them.

          “There is a video that I witness a while back concerning “Left Eye” Lopes. She was into numerology and Egyptology. Yet, on that video, paranormal things were occurring left and right in her life.
          As you know, she was killed in a car crash” Paranormal event occurs in the lives on Christians, too. What are your explanations for these happenings?” Christians are dying everyday in car accidents. Surely, these things should never happen to Christians. What is your explanation for Christians not only dying in car accidents but also dying of AIDS, cancers, heart diseases and many other ailments and freak accidents?

          “How come the Haitians are in a terrible rut now from the time they used Vodoun to free themselves from the French? They should be the PEARL of the Caribbean. Why they have to pay France reparations for their freedom like an inane group of people?” The French gave the backings of USA and Europe and they have bigger guns than the Haitians. Additionally the French have the powers of your evil god Yahweh. You have this insane idea that the spiritual ideologies of other groups are rooted in evil and it is clearly not. The bible and the Quran is filled with tales of violence and bloodshed. I cannot say I have read any other books that are so based on blood sacrifice of people. If Christianity is so great, why are white Christian nations constantly at war?

          “I also notice that some “black” people like to claim that the Bible is the white man’s creation just to worship stones, sticks and demons that would put them in more bondage.
          Yet, they conveniently take excerpts from it to fit their needs.” You are an idiot. Some black people are actually atheists. For example, Black Atheists of Atlanta. Do not belittle the black people who stick with their ancestral beliefs and choose not to worship a pink bloodthirsty demon. As if worship a god that looks nothing like you make sense. Get the fuck out here with that bullshit.

          “I must admit, Deuteronomy 21: 10 -13 reminds me of how the “black” man took over certain parts of where the white man attacked them and WENT with the WHITE women there making mixed offspring today. ” I just read the verse and it clearly what whites has done to the nations they have conquered. White missionaries are in Asia, Africa, and South America raping and converting.

          JB546, with so many white Christians who are racists, will there be a separate heaven for them and black Christians?

          1. Friend of mine told me a joke about the Nazi who made it to heaven…took a look around and said “Sure are a lot of Jews in this place!”

            bzing!

            (same book)

      2. My reply is against the associating of my Goddess Mother Oshun with sexual activity. Why does Jide Uwechia mention about her having sexual activity? I mean what’s the point. The degrading message is that she’s had sexual episodes with different male partners. Why use a Black Goddess and associate her with women that does lewd conduct. Disgracing a Black Goddess, whoever writes the stories about the Black Goddess should not be believed just because they wrote them. There should be some kind of Censor Board to filter what is being released on the Internet about the Goddess Oshun. What? can anything be written about her without any verifying record as to wether or not it’s true? I think that people just make up the degrading stories just to smear the Image of the Black Goddess. There should be a Censor Board of Black People , not caucasions ( of course not all of them are guilty) because they’d have no qualms about smearing a Black Goddess, they wouldn’t smear a Virgin Mary, for instance. The Black African Goddess Oshun is not related to the bible Theology. There’s an attempt to intergrate her with Caucasionism. I wish that The Beautiful Honorable Black Goddess Oshun Curse the guilty parties with horrible bad luck that degrades her Publicly. Just think about it deeply , no African would write such things about her. May someone with the power do something about it , don’t turn to the NAAC:P I think they’d be of no help, they’ve been bought to coverup things

    2. JB546,

      Here are some examples of rape in the bible approved by god.

      Death to the Rape Victim (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)
      If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

      David’s Punishment – Polygamy, Rape, Baby Killing, and God’s “Forgiveness” (2 Samuel 12:11-14 NAB)
      Thus says the Lord: ‘I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor. He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.’ Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.” Nathan answered David: “The Lord on his part has forgiven your sin: you shall not die. But since you have utterly spurned the Lord by this deed, the child born to you must surely die

      Rape and the Spoils of War (Judges 5:30 NAB)
      They must be dividing the spoils they took: there must be a damsel or two for each man, Spoils of dyed cloth as Sisera’s spoil, an ornate shawl or two for me in the spoil.

      Sex Slaves (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
      When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment

      God Assists Rape and Plunder (Zechariah 14:1-2 NAB)
      Lo, a day shall come for the Lord when the spoils shall be divided in your midst. And I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle: the city shall be taken, houses plundered, women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be removed from the city.

      Rape of Female Captives (Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB)
      “When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive’s garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion.”

      Slavery Approved by God

      The following passage shows that slaves are clearly property to be bought and sold like livestock.

      However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

      The following passage describes how the Hebrew slaves are to be treated.

      If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.’ If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever. (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)

      Notice how they can get a male Hebrew slave to become a permanent slave by keeping his wife and children hostage until he says he wants to become a permanent slave. What kind of family values are these?

      The following passage describes the sickening practice of sex slavery. How can anyone think it is moral to sell your own daughter as a sex slave?

      When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

      So these are the Bible family values! A man can buy as many sex slaves as he wants as long as he feeds them, clothes them, and screws them!

      What does the Bible say about beating slaves? It says you can beat both male and female slaves with a rod so hard that as long as they don’t die right away you are cleared of any wrong doing.

      When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

      You would think that Jesus and the New Testament would have a different view of slavery, but slavery is still approved of in the New Testament, as the following passages show.

      Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)
      Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them. (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)

      In the following parable, Jesus clearly approves of beating slaves even if they didn’t know they were doing anything wrong.

      The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it. “But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given.” (Luke 12:47-48 NLT)

      Bible Examples of a Murder and Racism Approved by the Bloodthirsty God of the Christian Bible

      Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests

      Kill Witches
      You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

      Death for Adultery

      Death to Followers of Other Religions
      Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

      Kill Nonbelievers
      They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

      Kill False Prophets
      If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, “You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord.” When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

      Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God
      Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

      Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night
      But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

      Kill Followers of Other Religions.
      1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)

      2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

      Death for Blasphemy
      One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD’s name. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother’s name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. They put the man in custody until the LORD’s will in the matter should become clear. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. Anyone who blasphemes the LORD’s name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD’s name will surely die. (Leviticus 24:10-16 NLT)

      Kill False Prophets
      1) Suppose there are prophets among you, or those who have dreams about the future, and they promise you signs or miracles, and the predicted signs or miracles take place. If the prophets then say, ‘Come, let us worship the gods of foreign nations,’ do not listen to them. The LORD your God is testing you to see if you love him with all your heart and soul. Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him. The false prophets or dreamers who try to lead you astray must be put to death, for they encourage rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of slavery in the land of Egypt. Since they try to keep you from following the LORD your God, you must execute them to remove the evil from among you. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5 NLT)

      2) But any prophet who claims to give a message from another god or who falsely claims to speak for me must die.’ You may wonder, ‘How will we know whether the prophecy is from the LORD or not?’ If the prophet predicts something in the LORD’s name and it does not happen, the LORD did not give the message. That prophet has spoken on his own and need not be feared. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 NLT)

      Kill Anyone who Approaches the Tabernacle
      For the LORD had said to Moses, ‘Exempt the tribe of Levi from the census; do not include them when you count the rest of the Israelites. You must put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant, along with its furnishings and equipment. They must carry the Tabernacle and its equipment as you travel, and they must care for it and camp around it. Whenever the Tabernacle is moved, the Levites will take it down and set it up again. Anyone else who goes too near the Tabernacle will be executed.’ (Numbers 1:48-51 NLT)

      Kill People for Working on the Sabbath
      The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.’ (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT)
      ——————————————————————————–
      2) God’s Murders for Stupid Reasons:

      Kill Brats
      From there Elisha went up to Bethel. While he was on his way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him. “Go up baldhead,” they shouted, “go up baldhead!” The prophet turned and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two shebears came out of the woods and tore forty two of the children to pieces. (2 Kings 2:23-24 NAB)
      God Kills the Curious
      And he smote of the men of Beth-shemesh, because they had looked into the ark of Jehovah, he smote of the people seventy men, `and’ fifty thousand men; and the people mourned, because Jehovah had smitten the people with a great slaughter. And the men of Beth-shemesh said, Who is able to stand before Jehovah, this holy God? and to whom shall he go up from us? (1Samuel 6:19-20 ASV)

      Killed by a Lion
      Meanwhile, the LORD instructed one of the group of prophets to say to another man, “Strike me!” But the man refused to strike the prophet. Then the prophet told him, “Because you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, a lion will kill you as soon as you leave me.” And sure enough, when he had gone, a lion attacked and killed him. (1 Kings 20:35-36 NLT)

      Killing the Good Samaritan
      The ark of God was placed on a new cart and taken away from the house of Abinadab on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab guided the cart, with Ahio walking before it, while David and all the Israelites made merry before the Lord with all their strength, with singing and with citharas, harps, tambourines, sistrums, and cymbals.

      When they came to the threshing floor of Nodan, Uzzah reached out his hand to the ark of God to steady it, for the oxen were making it tip. But the Lord was angry with Uzzah; God struck him on that spot, and he died there before God. (2 Samuel 6:3-7 NAB)
      ——————————————————————————–
      3) Murdering Children

      Kill Sons of Sinners
      Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants. (Isaiah 14:21 NAB)

      God Will Kill Children
      The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird, for your children will die at birth or perish in the womb or never even be conceived. Even if your children do survive to grow up, I will take them from you. It will be a terrible day when I turn away and leave you alone. I have watched Israel become as beautiful and pleasant as Tyre. But now Israel will bring out her children to be slaughtered.” O LORD, what should I request for your people? I will ask for wombs that don’t give birth and breasts that give no milk. The LORD says, “All their wickedness began at Gilgal; there I began to hate them. I will drive them from my land because of their evil actions. I will love them no more because all their leaders are rebels. The people of Israel are stricken. Their roots are dried up; they will bear no more fruit. And if they give birth, I will slaughter their beloved children.” (Hosea 9:11-16 NLT)

      Kill Men, Women, and Children
      “Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple.” So they began by killing the seventy leaders. “Defile the Temple!” the LORD commanded. “Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill! Go!” So they went throughout the city and did as they were told.” (Ezekiel 9:5-7 NLT)

      God Kills all the First Born of Egypt
      And at midnight the LORD killed all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn son of the captive in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed. Pharaoh and his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died. (Exodus 12:29-30 NLT)

      Kill Old Men and Young Women
      “You are my battle-ax and sword,” says the LORD. “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms. With you I will shatter armies, destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer. With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens. With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen, captains and rulers. “As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in Jerusalem,” says the LORD. “Look, O mighty mountain, destroyer of the earth! I am your enemy,” says the LORD. “I will raise my fist against you, to roll you down from the heights. When I am finished, you will be nothing but a heap of rubble. You will be desolate forever. Even your stones will never again be used for building. You will be completely wiped out,” says the LORD. (Jeremiah 51:20-26)
      God Will Kill the Children of Sinners
      If even then you remain hostile toward me and refuse to obey, I will inflict you with seven more disasters for your sins. I will release wild animals that will kill your children and destroy your cattle, so your numbers will dwindle and your roads will be deserted. (Leviticus 26:21-22 NLT)
      More Rape and Baby Killing
      Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children. (Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT)
      ——————————————————————————–
      4) Miscellaneous Murders

      More of Samson’s Murders
      (The Lord saves Sampson from standing trial for 30 murders and arson by allowing him to kill 1000 more men.) When he reached Lehi, and the Philistines came shouting to meet him, the spirit of the Lord came upon him: the ropes around his arms become as flax that is consumed by fire and the bonds melted away from his hands. Near him was the fresh jawbone of an ass; he reached out, grasped it, and with it killed a thousand men. (Judges 15:14-15 NAB)

      Peter Kills Two People
      There was also a man named Ananias who, with his wife, Sapphira, sold some property. He brought part of the money to the apostles, but he claimed it was the full amount. His wife had agreed to this deception. Then Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart? You lied to the Holy Spirit, and you kept some of the money for yourself. The property was yours to sell or not sell, as you wished. And after selling it, the money was yours to give away. How could you do a thing like this? You weren’t lying to us but to God.” As soon as Ananias heard these words, he fell to the floor and died. Everyone who heard about it was terrified. Then some young men wrapped him in a sheet and took him out and buried him. About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. Peter asked her, “Was this the price you and your husband received for your land?” “Yes,” she replied, “that was the price.” And Peter said, “How could the two of you even think of doing a thing like this – conspiring together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Just outside that door are the young men who buried your husband, and they will carry you out, too.” Instantly, she fell to the floor and died. When the young men came in and saw that she was dead, they carried her out and buried her beside her husband. Great fear gripped the entire church and all others who heard what had happened. (Acts 5:1-11 NLT)

      Mass Murder
      This is what the Lord of hosts has to say: ‘I will punish what Amalek did to Israel when he barred his way as he was coming up from Egypt. Go, now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has under the ban. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and asses.’ (1 Samuel 15:2-3 NAB)

      You Have to Kill
      Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood. (Jeremiah 48:10 NAB)

      The Danites Kill the Next Town
      But the territory of the Danites was too small for them; so the Danites marched up and attacked Leshem, which they captured and put to the sword. Once they had taken possession of Lesham, they renamed the settlement after their ancestor Dan. (Joshua 19:47 NAB)

      God Kills Some More
      Then the LORD said to me, “Even if Moses and Samuel stood before me pleading for these people, I wouldn’t help them. Away with them! Get them out of my sight! And if they say to you, ‘But where can we go?’ tell them, ‘This is what the LORD says: Those who are destined for death, to death; those who are destined for war, to war; those who are destined for famine, to famine; those who are destined for captivity, to captivity.’ “I will send four kinds of destroyers against them,” says the LORD. “I will send the sword to kill, the dogs to drag away, the vultures to devour, and the wild animals to finish up what is left. Because of the wicked things Manasseh son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, did in Jerusalem, I will make my people an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.” (Jeremiah 15:1-4 NLT)

      God Promises More Killing
      I will make Mount Seir utterly desolate, killing off all who try to escape and any who return. I will fill your mountains with the dead. Your hills, your valleys, and your streams will be filled with people slaughtered by the sword. I will make you desolate forever. Your cities will never be rebuilt. Then you will know that I am the LORD. (Ezekiel 35:7-9 NLT)

      The Angel of Death
      My angel will go before you and bring you to the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites, and Jebusites; and I will wipe them out. (Exodus 23:23 NAB)
      Destruction of Ai

      Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid or discouraged. Take the entire army and attack Ai, for I have given to you the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land. You will destroy them as you destroyed Jericho and its king. But this time you may keep the captured goods and the cattle for yourselves. Set an ambush behind the city.” So Joshua and the army of Israel set out to attack Ai. Joshua chose thirty thousand fighting men and sent them out at night with these orders: “Hide in ambush close behind the city and be ready for action. When our main army attacks, the men of Ai will come out to fight as they did before, and we will run away from them. We will let them chase us until they have all left the city. For they will say, ‘The Israelites are running away from us as they did before.’ Then you will jump up from your ambush and take possession of the city, for the LORD your God will give it to you. Set the city on fire, as the LORD has commanded. You have your orders.” So they left that night and lay in ambush between Bethel and the west side of Ai. But Joshua remained among the people in the camp that night.

      Early the next morning Joshua roused his men and started toward Ai, accompanied by the leaders of Israel. They camped on the north side of Ai, with a valley between them and the city. That night Joshua sent five thousand men to lie in ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city. So they stationed the main army north of the city and the ambush west of the city. Joshua himself spent that night in the valley. When the king of Ai saw the Israelites across the valley, he and all his army hurriedly went out early the next morning and attacked the Israelites at a place overlooking the Jordan Valley. But he didn’t realize there was an ambush behind the city. Joshua and the Israelite army fled toward the wilderness as though they were badly beaten, and all the men in the city were called out to chase after them. In this way, they were lured away from the city. There was not a man left in Ai or Bethel who did not chase after the Israelites, and the city was left wide open.

      Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Point your spear toward Ai, for I will give you the city.” Joshua did as he was commanded. As soon as Joshua gave the signal, the men in ambush jumped up and poured into the city. They quickly captured it and set it on fire. When the men of Ai looked behind them, smoke from the city was filling the sky, and they had nowhere to go. For the Israelites who had fled in the direction of the wilderness now turned on their pursuers. When Joshua and the other Israelites saw that the ambush had succeeded and that smoke was rising from the city, they turned and attacked the men of Ai. Then the Israelites who were inside the city came out and started killing the enemy from the rear. So the men of Ai were caught in a trap, and all of them died. Not a single person survived or escaped. Only the king of Ai was taken alive and brought to Joshua.

      When the Israelite army finished killing all the men outside the city, they went back and finished off everyone inside. So the entire population of Ai was wiped out that day – twelve thousand in all. For Joshua kept holding out his spear until everyone who had lived in Ai was completely destroyed. Only the cattle and the treasures of the city were not destroyed, for the Israelites kept these for themselves, as the LORD had commanded Joshua. So Ai became a permanent mound of ruins, desolate to this very day. Joshua hung the king of Ai on a tree and left him there until evening. At sunset the Israelites took down the body and threw it in front of the city gate. They piled a great heap of stones over him that can still be seen today. (Joshua 8:1-29 NLT)

      Killing at Jericho
      When the people heard the sound of the horns, they shouted as loud as they could. Suddenly, the walls of Jericho collapsed, and the Israelites charged straight into the city from every side and captured it. They completely destroyed everything in it – men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep, donkeys – everything. (Joshua 6:20-21 NLT)

      God Kills an Extended Family
      “You have done more evil than all who lived before you. You have made other gods and have made me furious with your gold calves. And since you have turned your back on me, I will bring disaster on your dynasty and kill all your sons, slave or free alike. I will burn up your royal dynasty as one burns up trash until it is all gone. I, the LORD, vow that the members of your family who die in the city will be eaten by dogs, and those who die in the field will be eaten by vultures.'” Then Ahijah said to Jeroboam’s wife, “Go on home, and when you enter the city, the child will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He is the only member of your family who will have a proper burial, for this child is the only good thing that the LORD, the God of Israel, sees in the entire family of Jeroboam. And the LORD will raise up a king over Israel who will destroy the family of Jeroboam. This will happen today, even now! Then the LORD will shake Israel like a reed whipped about in a stream. He will uproot the people of Israel from this good land that he gave their ancestors and will scatter them beyond the Euphrates River, for they have angered the LORD by worshiping Asherah poles. He will abandon Israel because Jeroboam sinned and made all of Israel sin along with him.” (1 Kings 14:9-16 NLT)

      Mass Murder
      The men of Israel withdrew through the territory of the Benjaminites, putting to the sword the inhabitants of the city, the livestock, and all they chanced upon. Moreover they destroyed by fire all the cities they came upon. (Judges 20:48 NAB)

      The Angel of Death
      That night the angel of the Lord went forth and struck down one hundred and eighty five thousand men in the Assyrian camp. Early the next morning, there they were, all the corpuses of the dead. (2 Kings 19:35 NAB)

      Kill Your Neighbors
      (Moses) stood at the entrance to the camp and shouted, “All of you who are on the LORD’s side, come over here and join me.” And all the Levites came. He told them, “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Strap on your swords! Go back and forth from one end of the camp to the other, killing even your brothers, friends, and neighbors.” The Levites obeyed Moses, and about three thousand people died that day. Then Moses told the Levites, “Today you have been ordained for the service of the LORD, for you obeyed him even though it meant killing your own sons and brothers. Because of this, he will now give you a great blessing.” (Exodus 32:26-29 NLT)

      Kill the Family of Sinners
      And Joshua said to Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession to him; and tell me now what thou hast done, hide it not from me. And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done. When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them, and behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.” [Note that the sin is not looting, but failing to give the loot to the treasury of the Lord.] “So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent, and behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. And they took them from the midst of the tent, and brought them to Joshua, and to all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD. And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them to the valley of Achor. And Joshua said, why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. And they raised over him a great heap of stones to this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger: wherefore the name of that place was called the valley of Achor to this day. (Joshua 7:19-26 Webster’s Bible)

      Kill Followers of Other Religions
      While the Israelites were camped at Acacia, some of the men defiled themselves by sleeping with the local Moabite women. These women invited them to attend sacrifices to their gods, and soon the Israelites were feasting with them and worshiping the gods of Moab. Before long Israel was joining in the worship of Baal of Peor, causing the LORD’s anger to blaze against his people. The LORD issued the following command to Moses: “Seize all the ringleaders and execute them before the LORD in broad daylight, so his fierce anger will turn away from the people of Israel.” So Moses ordered Israel’s judges to execute everyone who had joined in worshiping Baal of Peor. Just then one of the Israelite men brought a Midianite woman into the camp, right before the eyes of Moses and all the people, as they were weeping at the entrance of the Tabernacle. When Phinehas son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron the priest saw this, he jumped up and left the assembly. Then he took a spear and rushed after the man into his tent. Phinehas thrust the spear all the way through the man’s body and into the woman’s stomach. So the plague against the Israelites was stopped, but not before 24,000 people had died. (Numbers 25:1-9 NLT)

      Murder
      At the customary time for offering the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet walked up to the altar and prayed, “O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command. O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.” Immediately the fire of the LORD flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust. It even licked up all the water in the ditch! And when the people saw it, they fell on their faces and cried out, “The LORD is God! The LORD is God!” Then Elijah commanded, “Seize all the prophets of Baal. Don’t let a single one escape!” So the people seized them all, and Elijah took them down to the Kishon Valley and killed them there. (1 Kings 18:36-40 NLT)

      Kill All of Babylon
      “Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge! Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you,” says the LORD. “Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction”. (Jeremiah 50:21-22 NLT)

      Micah Kills a Whole Town
      Then, with Micah’s idols and his priest, the men of Dan came to the town of Laish, whose people were peaceful and secure. They attacked and killed all the people and burned the town to the ground. There was no one to rescue the residents of the town, for they lived a great distance from Sidon and had no allies nearby. This happened in the valley near Beth-rehob.Then the people of the tribe of Dan rebuilt the town and lived there. They renamed the town Dan after their ancestor, Israel’s son, but it had originally been called Laish. (Judges 18:27-29 NLT) (Note that God approves of this slaughter in verse 6.)

  5. Author: ‘Jesus Worship’ Hurts The Black Community!

    — Dr. Christopher Bell Jr. explains why and how in his new book entitled “The Black Clergy’s Misguided Worship Leadership” —

    Bookcover

    Washington, DC (BlackNews.com) — “‘Jesus worship’ is equivalent to ‘white male worship’ and is detrimental to the mental and emotional health of black people,” argues Dr. Christopher Bell Jr. Dr. Bell cites cogent educational and behavioral reasons to explain why and how the glorification and worship of the ancient, Roman-made, white male, Christian idol, Jesus Christ is not only idolatrous, but how such worship subliminally makes black people complicit in their own psychological oppression. Specifically, Dr. Bell provides information to show that:

    a. The Jesus worshipping (white male worshipping) culture of the black community subliminally afflicts many black people with a deleterious white superiority syndrome that lead to low self esteem, self-hate, psychological dissonance, and emotional and spiritual depression resulting in aberrant and self-injuring behavior or self-limiting beliefs such as; low academic achievement motivation among black adolescents, mutual alienation between black men and women, increase feelings of hate toward whites and other blacks, and increased stress and other health related problems in black males;

    b. The Jesus worshipping (white male worshipping) culture of the black community reinforces the oppressive racist notion of white male superiority in the same ways as white racial discrimination and racial aggression;

    c. The Jesus worshipping (white male worshipping) folkways of the black community are mentally oppressive and emotional emasculating to many young black men who after years of embedment in such a culture feel alienated, demeaned, and angry and react in ways that lead to high rates of recalcitrance, self abuse, crime, violence, and incarceration;

    d. The Jesus worship (white male worship) within the black community is a self-administered practice that makes black people complicit in their own psychological oppression and serves as a catalyst for “good” white people to presume that black people have accepted the notion that “whiteness and the white male Christian power structure” is anointed and approved by God.

    In his book entitled The Black Clergy’s Misguided Worship Leadership, Dr. Bell argues that to neutralize the above negative effects of “Jesus worship,” the black clergy must stop teaching black people to glorify and worship Jesus Christ and begin teaching them a “new Christianity” that espouses WORSHIPPING ONLY GOD the creator and sustainer of life and recognizes Jesus as a human being and prophet. Why? Because this “new Christianity” would promote Jesus Christ from the status of an unbelievable, make-believe, superstition-based, supernatural, extra-terrestrial god-character to the status of a believable, historically feasible, real life human being and prophet; and young black men will be able to relate to a “Prophet Jesus” and to his teachings with a sense of reality, human commonality, self-respect, and rationality. None of these relationships is now possible between today’s Christianity and young black men.

    Dr. Bell explains that the “new Christianity” is a crucial intellectual and cultural transformation that black people must undertake if they are to ever liberate themselves from the damaging psychological effects of their white male worshipping folkways. He explains further how the black community with its renown black community uplift organizations must work together to persuade a reluctant black clergy to stop “Jesus worship” and begin “God worship only. Dr. Bell argues that the “new Christianity” will promote the religious enlightenment and psychological liberation of black people and mediate downward the high rates of recalcitrance, anti-social temperament, and violence in many young black men and thus reduce their plight and plunge toward incarceration.

  6. Renowned nigerian scholar and historian Professor Chinweizu Ibekwe analyses the historical origin of christianity in africa in the following article:

    by Chinweizu
    Posted to the Web: Thursday, October 06, 2005

    Letter from King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries, 1883
    The letter which follows is Courtesy of Dr. Vera Nobles and Dr. Chiedozie Okoro.

    “Reverends, Fathers and Dear Compatriots: The task that is given to fulfill is very delicate and requires much tact. You will go certainly to evangelize, but your evangelization must inspire above all Belgium interests. Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo is never to teach the niggers to know God, this they know already. They speak and submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, one Nzakomba, and what else I don’t know. They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else’s wife, to lie and to insult is bad. Have courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they know already. Your essential role is to facilitate the task of administrators and industrials, which means you will go to interpret the gospel in the way it will be the best to protect your interests in that part of the world. For these things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting our savages from the richness that is plenty [in their underground. To avoid that, they get interested in it, and make you murderous] competition and dream one day to overthrow you.

    Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering, and encouraging your followers to love poverty, like “Happier are the poor because they will inherit the heaven” and, “It’s very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.” You have to detach from them and make them disrespect everything which gives courage to affront us. I make reference to their Mystic System and their war fetish-warfare protection-which they pretend not to want to abandon, and you must do everything in your power to make it disappear.

    Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for they won’t revolt when the recommendation of the priest is contradictory to their parent’s teachings. The children have to learn to obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their soul. You must singularly insist on their total submission and obedience, avoid developing the spirit in the schools, teach students to read and not to reason. There, dear patriots, are some of the principles that you must apply. You will find many other books, which will be given to you at the end of this conference. Evangelize the niggers so that they stay forever in submission to the white colonialists, so they never revolt against the restraints they are undergoing. Recite every day-“Happy are those who are weeping because the kingdom of God is for them.”

    Convert always the blacks by using the whip. Keep their women in nine months of submission to work freely for us. Force them to pay you in sign of recognition-goats, chicken or eggs-every time you visit their villages. And make sure that niggers never become rich. Sing every day that it’s impossible for the rich to enter heaven. Make them pay tax each week at Sunday mass. Use the money supposed for the poor, to build flourishing business centres. Institute a confessional system, which allows you to be good detectives denouncing any black that has a different consciousness contrary to that of the decision-maker. Teach the niggers to forget their heroes and to adore only ours. Never present a chair to a black that comes to visit you. Don’t give him more than one cigarette. Never invite him for dinner even if he gives you a chicken every time you arrive at his house.

    “The above speech which shows the real intention of the Christian missionary journey in Africa was exposed to the world by Mr. Moukouani Muikwani Bukoko, born in the Congo in 1915, and who in 1935 while working in the Congo, bought a second hand Bible from a Belgian priest who forgot the speech in the Bible. — Dr. Chiedozie Okoro

    We should note:
    1] that all missionaries carried out, and still carry out, that mandate. We are only lucky to have found King Leopold’s articulation of the aim of all Christian imperialist missionaries to Africa.

    2] Even the African converts who today manage the older churches in Africa (the priests, bishops, Archbishops, Cardinals etc of the Roman and Protestant sects), and especially also those who evangelize Born-Again Christianity, still serve the same mandate. Which is why they demonize African gods and Anglicize African names, and drop the names of African deities which form part of African names; and still attack and demolish the African shrines that have managed to survive, e.g. Okija.

    3] Those Africans who voluntarily converted to Christianity before the colonial conquest such as Affonso I of the BaKongo in the 15th century probably did not discern the purpose of the brand of Christianity that was supplied to them. Which was probably why they fell easy prey to the missionaries and the white traders and pirates who followed them.

    But their Japanese counterparts probably did discern the game, even without access to some version of Leopold’s letter. But even if the Japanese Shoguns did not intuit what Leopold makes explicit, they clearly realized the danger of Japanese converts to Christianity forming a fifth column within Japanese society and state, a fifth column loyal to their co-religionists in Europe. To rid Japan of that danger, in the late 16th century, the Shoguns began their expulsion of Portuguese and Spanish missionaries on the grounds that they were forcing Japanese to become Christian, teaching their disciples to wreck temples, taking and trading slaves, etc. Then, in 1596, it became clear to the Japanese authorities that Christianization had been a prelude to Spanish conquest of other lands; and it quickly dawned on them that a fifth column loyal to Rome and controlled by the priests of a foreign religion was a clear and present danger to the sovereignty of a newly unified Japan. Soon after, the persecution and suppression of Japanese Christians began. Early in the 17th century, sensing the danger from a creed that taught obedience to foreign priests rather than the Japanese authorities, all missionaries were ordered to leave and all Japanese were ordered to register at the Buddhist temples. When Japanese Christians took part in a rebellion, foreign priests were executed, the Spanish were expelled and Japanese Christians were forbidden to travel abroad. After another rebellion, largely by Christians, was put down, the Japanese Christians were suppressed and their descendants were put under close state surveillance for centuries thereafter. In the 1640s all Japanese suspected of being Christians were ruthlessly exterminated. Thus did Japan, by 1650, save itself from the first European attempt to mentally subvert, conquer and colonize it.

    4] The African captives who were taken abroad and enslaved, and the Africans at home after the European conquest, having already been forcibly deprived of their autonomy, were in no political position to resist Christianization. Thus the Christianity still practised in all of the African American diaspora, just as that in the African homeland since the start of the 20th century, continues to carry out the Leopoldian mandate.
    Hence, for example, whereas the White Born-Agains of the USA, when in the US Navy ships in WWII, sang:

    “Praise the Lord,
    And pass the ammunition,” the attitude of African Born-Again converts today is best summed up as :
    “Praise the Lord,
    And lie down for the manna.”

    Thanks to a century or more of this Leopold-mandated missionary mind control, African Christians are not an activist, self-helping, economically engaged, politically resolute, let alone militant bunch. Hence their putting up with all manner of mistreatment and exploitation by their misrulers, white and black. The most they are disposed to do to their misrulers is to admonish them to “Fear God!”—as one protester’s miserable placard read in last week’s Lagos demonstration against the latest of the murderous fuel price hikes by the OBJ Misgovernment. The idea of an uprising to tame their misrulers is alien to the religiously opiated frame of mind of the Nigerians.

    5] The lesson in the contrast between an Africa that the Christian missionaries brainwashed and subverted, and a Japan where this brainwashing and subversion was forcibly prevented, is stark and clear. What then must Africans of today begin to do to save themselves from brainwashing by their White World enemies here on earth?—That is the question.

  7. May the Supernatural ,non Christian, non Biblical Theological, Magical Force That can eminate from the Black African Goddess’s Oshun’s Mind dominate the Global activity in every human Society. Black People , Have you noticed that no African languages can be learned in colleges, there’s no curriculum for any of them. Lets see, there’s French, Spanish, and maybe some Russian. The Big Why? Don’t you believe that if Kiswahili was offered on the curriculum just about every Black African American ( such as myself ) would take that class? Where’s the NAACP about such Issues? That’s certainly an issue for the Psychological Advancement of Colored People. Just take the Dues and Mildew.” Hum, let’s see” say they the other people,” Kiswahili , no way, their Culture might begin to shine Beautifully”. “Our Caucasion , English language empire might begin to drindle somewhat”

  8. Hey I just want to say than for explaining about our Gods ,one thing I can say they are alive like it or not ,they do answer prayers Right away.Thank you
