  1. I totally agree with the part about the color does not matter, but I would also like to bring this commom era fact to light. It appears that the curiosity of man is beginning to smack him in the face, meaning, If they weren’t so curious to discover God’s mysteries and works then we wouldn’t be having these debates in the first place. I found it rather amusing that scientist are finding the answers for their on going questions. I think that we are getting exactly what we deserve as inquisitive minded people, furthermore look at the national disaster…The earth is leaking Oil….HELLO!!! is anyone paying atttention to this? We will ultimately lead to our own demise, the roles have been reversed: before we were put here to maintain the earth, now since mankind has crept his way upon it again, it seems that the earth protects us!!! Man leans to his own understanding, thus co creating stuff which in returns comes from natural elements of the earth to begin with, but they pride themselves off of the fact that they can send someone to the moon or put a telescope into orbit….please!!! with all of the space shuttles entering and exiting the atmosphere…no wonder the polar ice caps are melting. Bottome line, we as mankind have more important things that we should be directing our attention towards instead of one another. Don’t jude a book by its cover or a man by his color…that is an original quote so don’t steal The only way things will ever get better is if we work together and we all know the devil doesn’t want unity unless it’s doing his work and the last time i checked, his work is the reason we have all this mess going on in the first place. WAKE UP PEOPLE! stop debating things that really shouldn’t matter because regardless of what we debate…..i still believe the truth shall come to the light and those who are used to living in darkness will reject that which the light reveals! the debate about race is a created debate to begin with, so who will ever have an answer to suffice… one. I like Black the like White!!! prime example!

    1. color does matter are white people from Africa. As indicated the Bible never mentions any European countries. It matters because the only image of Jesus Christ as presented to the world is a white guy with blond hair and blue eyes; not any other color. SO YES COLOR MATTERS. THEY WERE BROWN SKIN PEOPLE.

      1. I believe we all started out dark skinned black look up albino in africans they pit us against one another over color qnd dont realize this yes i believe we all originate out of africa

      2. The ever persistent imagery the white, blonde, blue eyed Jesus, constitutes a stumbling block, 80 % of the 5 to 6 billions of people on the planet are not white, Caucasian, They are mostly Islamic, Hindu, Buddhis, Ancestor or animal whorshipers .Most have a historical experience that makes the blonde, blue eyed, Image of Christ problematical. If the goal is to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus, The Christ. Insisting on an image that reminds Us of Our oppressors, seems considerablely less than intelligent.

    2. Color does matter…!!!
      I repeat… COLOR!!! DOES!!! MATTER!!!
      It’s psychologically damaging for Black people to worship some non-historical, ridiculous looking, fake-ass White image…!!!
      Get all those false White images out all Black churches…!!!!!

    3. Wow that is so powerful, and it is so powerful because it is so packed with truth. You state the obvious so wonderfully that I do not think that those that are touched by it and do not want to be will not even be able to find anger in their hearts toward what is said. Thank You so very much.

  2. Thank you , very inlighting.Yea shall know the truth,and the truth shall make you free.

    And how do his people parish?Because of the lack of knowlege

    1. Ras Clod Bwoi! What is it in the libraries of Alexandria , Cairo and other places in Egypt that they didn’t what us to see that pertains to Christianity?

  3. What people need to realize during the 400 silent years between Old Testament & New Testament Alexander the Great and another person destroyed the Libraries, Monuments, of Aleaxandria, Egypt and kept the most importat info {History of Egpt and Bible} with the Rich Clergy of the Church while the Laity (Church Attendee’s} didn’t have access to the real truth. The Greek Philosphers studied from the Egyptian school of thought.

  4. How when it come to whites and other races color doesn’t matter–but when it comes to black mentioning in the bible Color now matter. I don’t get it.

    1. Have you gone to church? How often have you heard anyone mention that there were black people in biblical time? What color do you see angels, Jesus, Santa? It’s as if black people don’t matter , have no meaning, black people are the beginning
      of life give them their credit!

    2. It’s so true that when Blacks have questions about our influence in the Bible, it’s an issue. It must matter if others aren’t telling the truth about our representation in the Bible. If the truth were told, there’s be problem. Unbelievable! The Bible has been made dubious by MAN!

      1. Solomon said i am BLACK but i am comely, thus the CHRIST came through that lineage of DAVID so how could CHRIST b white? Impossible. Yet it gets deeper cause CHRIST is now in the spirit. J

        1. Because jesus is the angel of light that came not to bring peace but division and the true prophet Yeshua was hung on a tree like all the other prophets

    3. Indeed! It mattered to them when one would bow down to a fake blue eyed, blonde haired, milky white false idol whom they called jesus image who was the painting of the son of a evil pope a picture of the son of satan. When Yeshua the true Son of God had bronze skin.

      Even there own pope bows down before a Black Virgin Mary and Yeshua. But let’s just sweep race under the rug and forget about it!

  5. Hey mon, it don’t matter bout color cause we all heathen Gentiles, but if you believe in the Almighty Jesus Christ as your Savior, then we are graffted into His kingdom! If you truly believe this then it’s like your Gods’ adopted children. Amen brothers and sisters

    1. Karl even before you think of paradise and Jesus (Yahshua) you need to get the truth right today and stop hiding behind the name. If you keep my commandments you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Truth is exposing lies for what is fact.

  6. We can try to ignore it all we wnt but racism is alive & well. We still r slaves to dem but n God’s eyes, we r his ppl. & he show’s great love toward us some just dnt no how to recieve it because da still have a slavery mindset

  7. We think we are suposeto have straight hair talk & walk like someone else when all along we are who we are &who we are God’s children who were made in his own image. thats right in His likeness

  8. Concerning the Library in Alexandria and other secular meeting grounds…those book are just books. Just as any other book. The one thing I learned about reading is, you can compare it to a buffet. You may be able to see the whole buffet, but surely you can’t eat everything that is set before you, therefore you only eat what you know you can handle. The truth is, ALL BOOKS UPON THIS EARTH have been manipulated and distorted. We are currently living in a time when the common trend is EVERYONE GET ALONG, but this is something that is of new origin. The races have always stuck to one another’s own and the only reason everyone wants to get along now is because we all can benefit from one another, but the fact still remains that there was this certain groug that TYRANNIZED and CHEATED everyone. This group is responsible for the library in Alexandria and the ancient Egyptians being painted white. This same group has put a lieing dog into authority, named Zahi Hawass, the current Egyptologist that runs the CURRENT DISTORTION AND DESTRUCTION of ANCIENT BLACK CIVILIZATIONS. I am not pointing the finger at anyone, but the truth must be told and to BE HONEST WITH YOU….THIS CERTAIN GROUP WOULD RATHER I DIE THAN TO KNOW THE TRUTH! I will say one other thing though…no matter how much this group has tried to destroy MY PEOPLE, with their slavetrade, giving us a new language and new names…completely DESTROYING MY HERITAGE…THEY STILL NEVER FACTOR IN THE HEAVENS INTO THEIR EQUATION…like…I know I can read the Bible, Koran, Torah, Tanak and any other books that are here upon this earth. If you really want to know the TRUTH then the TRUTH ONLY COMES FROM ABOVE. NO ONE CAN GET IN THE WAY OF THE HEAVENS WHEN THEY HAVE TO relay a message from the MOST HIGH TO MANKIND…no book can suffice. No preacher or teacher can suffice. If you really want to know the truth and what is really going on in this world then what did the MESSIAH PROMISE? Ye shall know the TRUTH and the TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE….I AM FREE PEOPLE AND HIS NAME IS NOT JESUS CHRIST, NOR JESUS THE CHRIST. JESUS could not have been his name because if he spoke HEBREW, ARAMAIC or GREEK…neither has A LETTER J in its alphabet. Therefore THEY NEVER CALLED HIM (J)esus…this name is recently new. His name is YESHUA HA MASHIOK…YESHUA=jesus….HA=the….MASHIOK=the annointed….DOES ANYONE SPEAK MY LANGUAGE because THIS IS WHAT THE HEAVENS HAS REVEALED TO ME? What is man, but a VAPOR? No matter what these people do to distort the TRUTH….YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE….IT SURE FEELS GOOD TO BE FREE…I HOPE YOU JOIN ME SOON!

    1. Highly uplifting! Its is hardening to my heart to know that people of our color, not only just race but color, do not recognize the original black man as the most biologically dominant being on earth. With that being said the original people had to be of the same origin. That fact there is the reason we are emasculated, frowned upon, and separated to fulfill the enemy’s rage of jealousy. God, the God I know, Yah, not of white decent, will become more powerful to us as a nation of black people when and only when we learn that the reason we are in this situation is because of the first rebellion of Satan to attain the power and respect that Yah had amongst his angels.

    2. i concur, dameon…it also has been gvn on2 me, th journey to seek God’s truth among God’s creatn…there, God has delivered on2 me, “nuggets of truths” from a multitude of seemngly ndepndnt resources…God is revealng an image thru ths procss…i blieve ths procss shall bring clarity, where there has been only confusion…whtevr God says is of significance, is of significance….God has nevr evr needd human beings to defend God-& still does not…all is set & done, it is only our finite xperionly, whch seems to hv a past, present& future, tht is yet to b reveald…may G.O.D.; Th Generatng Omni-potnt-scient-prsnt Designr bless us all…

    1. I think its the new heaven for whites thats why they are slaughtering africans for the land and other resources. Remember if the whites murder the africans and create new hybrid races, there would be less originals staking claims on the land. And the new hybrids will finish the job because the hybrids will not relate to the originals. Thats why there are so many confused hybrids in north america claiming to be everything but black even when they cant pass for anything but black.

    2. It is still paradise ,right here on earth .It has been tainted with hate , theft ,deceit ,and death ,but God will provide all that is needed to restore it.

  9. the fake “white” image of christ story was created” in the first concil of nicea in 325AD” by constintine and pope julian the second!King Ezana from Ethiopia, is the first christain emperor of the world, 200 years, long before constantine was on the scene!Yashua Christmas was on born Jan 6 in a cave in Ethiopia!He was an “revolutionist”.He was not a messiah but was spiritualy enlighten being because of “meditation”. constantine distorted the cross story from “OSIRUS” and the SUN birth of december 25 from HORUS! ISIS, has the first virgin birth story of the world, not mary! The Kemetic Book Of Dead predates the king james bible 1611ad, the koran 640ad, torah 250bc!!! The reason i know these things cause my family went to Sai(now known by Egypt) , Kush( now known as Ethiopia), Canaan( now known as Israel) ISIS-AMENRA-ELOHIM= ISRAEL!!!!!!!! people need to travel and stop reading these european versions of holy bible, torah ,and korans!!!!! Yashua ,Buddha, Horus,Krishna and even AMEN are representations of the “SUN” not son. A ressurrected Penis and a Vagina(the WOMB) can bring forth LIFE. In the Beginning there was Man, Woman, and Child and today we go by Father, Son, Holy spirit. The christian missionaries didn’t have respect for the woman, so they replaced the woman with holy spirit!!!!!believe me or not!God is not yor creator !!!! Man and Woman are the creators!!!!The only God spiritual connection or Realm within you is through MEDITATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. how do th finite create…?
      i hv only evr xperiencd reproductn, nventns, manufracturng & reformng as a human being…my undrstndng of th term “creatn” is producng very thing from no-thng…whn has any human being done tht…?
      terri a.

  10. All is vanity as the book of Ecclesiastes begins..we should not be conformed bt be transformed. Jesus tought on mountain,”blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” let’s hv a heart like that of a child so us when Jesus will come back we shall go with Him and all kind of questions, we I’ll be free to ask.. let us not get confused by satan. Amen and be blessed.
