I always find it ironic that a people can and will embrace the faith of thier oppressors so wholeheartedly. Jesus was'nt a christian, would'nt know a christian if you hit him with neon sign. He was a hebrew rabbi telling his people to get back on the path of thier ancestors (ie...the old testement). Africans brought over to this country, had to learn the bible to learn the english language, not to mention being forcfully converted as time went on during slavery. I get asked all the time, do I follow the laws of the old or new testement? I go with the old. Lets say that Jesus (and did'nt the angel tell Mary and Joseph to name him EMMANUEL??? Where did "Jesus" come from?) was the "son" of the almighty. There is no way I'm going to follow the son over THE FATHER. The Almighty said his words will never change and he meant it. The christian faith has a good racket going I'll give them that much.
