Monotheism vs Polytheism

Monotheism vs Pantheism (Polytheism)

A friend of mine, asked a question this morning that has unleashed me to articulate an answer, I thought you may want to vailidate or disprove?

 

The Seven questions are?

[1] What religion would you be if the horrific act of slavery did not occur, and no invasion of African by the diplomatic-barbarians of the three major world religions?

 

[2] Which book would be your holy book if the slave-master did not give you his book?

 

[3] Who would be your god if the slave masters did not introduce you to his god?

 

[4] Who would be your lord and savior if the slave master did not tell you that his ancestor was your lord and savior.?

 

[5] Who would you pray to if the slave master did point to the sky and tell who to pray to?

 

[6] Do you also silently thank the Jewish, Caucasian, and Arabian slave-masters for enslaving 100 million of your ancestors and infecting them with these three religions that you have today…DO YOU SAY THANK GOD FOR YOUR SLAVE-MASTERS?.

 

[7] DO YOU GET ON YOUR KNEE EVERY NIGHT AND THANK THE SLAVE-MASTER’S GOD FOR INSTITUTING THE DIABOLICAL ACT SLAVERY, BECAUSE IF IT WAS NOT FOR HIS CO-SIGNING OF SLAVERY YOU WOULD NOT HAVE FOUND YOUR AFRICAN GOD.

 

Can one of you African Christians, Muslims or Jews answer these 7 basic questions for me?

 

 

 

NOW THIS IS MY RESPONSE:

 

I have one answer to all of the seven questions, which i should true to form being a 9jrn, answer with a question such as.Did you not know about King Taharqa and Akenaton of ancient Egypt and Nubia?But i will instead answer better.

 

The answer to all the questions are that, we would be have continued worshipping God almighty in the pantheistic way, that made us lose His favour. We would have been still selling ourselves and oppressing ourselves much more than the rest of the world. Just as we are still trying to do.But it was inevitable that the slavemaster would have still found us the weakest link and conquered us, because we are too divided, and the slave-masters are too united. In otherwords their strength would have found our weakness, especially because of the richness of Africa that we still fail to recognise, appreciate and maximise.

 

MANY OF US WILL FIND THIS DIFFICULT TO SWALLOW, but if WE have researched this, and are honest with OURSELVES, then WE will admit this. A long shot though, because WE are all subconsciously saddled with a fragile ego. Its a Fragile Ego exactly because of our past, greatness is still in our genes and spirit, because our ancestors of old were great, but so are so many other things. In a nutshell my brother, pantheism/polytheism instilled in us division and disunity, while monotheism, instills in those who embrace it UNITY!!

 

What gave the slavemaster strength as you call them, is monotheism, which is exactly what gave King Taharqa and King Akenaton strength of ancient Egypt and Nubia. The worship of one God, and the coming messiah, was first revealed to the black man, to the African..

 

Actually when we were mostly monotheist we were dominant and slavemasters too, actually that is part of what made us great. Even in the bible it is written about Sudan and Egypt. The Egyptians of those days that commissioned the pyramid projects were not Arabs, they were black, just like me and you. Some are still there today. Their mummies bear witness too. Actually lets think deeper, how were the pyramids built, by whose labour…..?

 

Lo and behold, there is another slavemaster in the making, and we know it not, because we don’t have enough collective spirit or foresight to know that the slavemaster will not come the same way he came before or from the same place.!!!!CHINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

NOW WHATS YOUR TAKE IN ALL OF THIS MY FRIENDS?
