The Christian male God, Yahweh, says, thou shalt not commit adultery; thou shalt not covet another man's wife, then, He goes on to impregnate Joseph's wife. If this God is genuine, why would he choose, of all the millions of eligible damsels in the world at the time, a cheap prostitute cheating on her husband, for his apparently first and last frolic? Some demon God. Defiling Mrs. Joseph, even in a spaceship, of course, could have produced an illegitimate child, but Church fathers are not owning up to that infraction.
Rather, they would try to continue their tradition of deceiving the world in their next edition of the Bible by claiming that God approves of homosexuality. In an interview with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, conducted by David Van Biema and Catherine Mayer, and published in the US 'Time' weekly magazine of June 18, 2007, entitled 'Holy War,' it was reported that global Anglicanism may be veering toward a schism. That “a clash over homosexuality threatens to tear apart the worldwide Anglican community. At the 1998 edition of the Communion's once-a-decade Lambeth Conference, the concluding language called homosexual practice 'incompatible with scripture. In 2003, the Episcopal Church, the Anglican body in the US, made Gene Robinson, an openly gay man, Bishop of New Hampshire.”
The ordination of Gene Robinson as Bishop has gravely fractioned the worldwide Anglican communion, with African Bishops leading the opposition. The Most Rev. Peter Akinola, now former Archbishop, in response to the threat posed by the US action when he was the Nigerian Archbishop said: “God regards homosexuality as the equivalent of humans having sex with various animals.” And in response to Canterbury that appeared to be sitting on the fence on the matter, Archbishop Akinola said, “We don't have to go through Canterbury to get to Jesus.” Akinola then went ahead to break up the Anglican body in the US, that has 111 dioceses, by setting up – the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA) – flouting Communion rules about stealing other Bishops' sheep. Right now, there are two US Anglican bodies, one known unofficially as Akinola's church and responding to African authority and leadership, and the other, which supports homosexuality, responding to Canterbury.
The Anglican's once in ten years Conference, which held between June 22 and Sunday June 29, 2008, in Jerusalem, was threatened with boycotts and hostilities by African Bishops. Archbishop Rowan Williams was not optimistic but hopeful that he could still hold his flock together. He said in the Time magazine interview, “I don't particularly want to be – I wouldn't say blackmailed but pressured by either extreme on this. I think they'd lose by not coming. I think they need to talk to each other and listen to each other without prejudice.” 300 Bishops attended the meeting, with Archbishops Peter Akinola of Nigeria and Henri Orombi of Uganda criticising Dr. Rowan's handling of the gay Bishop's issue. The Conference expressed concern over the future of the church, which Akinola described as being in a state of brokenness.
The Daily Sun newspaper of Nigeria, on March 18, 2008, published an interview that revealed the real reason for the schism between the Church in the West and Africa. It totally destroyed the foundation of the Church by exposing the lies that have sustained it until now. The interview slipped quietly through the media without raising as much as an eyebrow. It was a devastating silent bomb never-the-less. In the Daily Sun interview, Mr. Oliver-Ross Udeafor asked Rt. Rev. Dr. Samuel Chukwudi Ezeofor, the Bishop of the Missionary Diocese of Ogbaru, with headquarters at Utani in Anambra State, Nigeria, a series of questions leading to the following last one.
Question. “The Lambeth Conference is coming up this year but the African Bishops, particularly the Nigerian ones, are saying they would not attend due to problems of same sex marriages and gay priests' ordination in America. Do you think that not attending is the best thing to do.?”
Answer by Bishop Ezeofor. “Well, let me say first of all, that it is really not the same sex marriage that is the only problem. It is just one of the problems. We are talking about the revisionist agenda of the West where people are now talking about doubting the virgin birth of Christ.
In fact, all the things we know to be the foundation of Christianity, some people are questioning them and to the point that somebody is saying, well, we wrote the Bible and we can rewrite it. So, you find that it is not just the issue of the same sex but it is the whole issue of the revisionist agenda and if you like, modernism. That is what we are fighting. Well, not attending Lambeth Conference is the decision of the Church of Nigeria and some other national Churches, not only Nigeria for now. It is not that we are saying we will not attend but we want the matters on ground to be settled biblically because if we throw away the Bible then there is no basis for us attending the conference. So, that is what we are saying. We will attend when the atmosphere, the climate is conducive, based on the fact that we are saying these things that are on ground, let us resolve them. That is the matter there.”
Now, does this not show how dumb African leaders of alien religions are? Their master says: “I want to change some rules that I made. I wrote the Bible and I lied. I want to modernize it.” The African servant says, what do you want to do such a dumb thing for? Leave things as they are, we are happy living a lie. When I wrote in the same Daily Sun newspaper about four years ago that Jesus Christ was the figment of the White man's fertile imagination, under the title 'The White man's 419,' (419 is the statute book reference code for economic fraud in Nigeria), the Church movement in Nigeria went up in arms. Archbishop Rowan Williams had to rush to Nigeria at the time to help calm frayed nerves and strategize on what to do. Series of vigils were held in Churches around the country and around the world to exorcize the devil responsible for the newspaper article. I was convinced at the time that the men of God honestly and genuinely believed that the Bible was written and dropped from heaven by their devil male God.
After Bishop Ezeofor's interview in the Daily Sun in March, 2008, I did what I should have done earlier. I sat some members of a famous elite Seminary down and asked them about the 'Virgin Birth' and other lies their religion thrives on. After a rambling session in which efforts were made to persuade or divert me or change the topic, the truth began to emerge. They confessed, one after the other, that they know and talk about the kind of issues I have raised, among themselves.
That they are warned by their superiors not to let the truth go beyond the walls of the Seminaries. Then why do you stay in it? Why do you work against your own conviction, against the truth, against your conscience? I asked. They tried to convince me that when one grows up believing in something, it is difficult to suddenly change direction as an adult. Besides, it is a way of life for many, a popular one too, a gigantic industry that sustains millions of people. If you destroy it, where are the alternative jobs for the millions that would be thrown into the labour market?
I was ok in a way, when I believed that the leaders of the Church did not know the truth about their religion. Now that I know that they knew all along, and are deliberately benefiting from fraudulently misleading millions of followers around the world, I feel very sad indeed. I feel even more so for Black and African people who kneel or bow before Caucasian, Asian and Arab Gods, ancestors, spiritual images, messiahs and intermediaries, because by doing so, they are admitting chronic inferiority complex, and encouraging their perpetual mental slavery.
Six thousand years ago, our primitive ancestors believed that the Moon and the Sun were gods; that Semiramis was hatched from an egg that fell from the Moon; that Ausar's ghost pregnated Auset for the first human Virgin Birth and that Ausar resurrected and ascended to heaven to seat in judgment over the dead. These rather infantile ideas now, were sustained by our confused Church fathers who declared surgical operations, devils work in 1302 CE; burnt Nicholas Copernicus at the stake in 1543 CE, for claiming that the Earth is round; burnt Giordano Bruno at the stake in 1600 CE, for claiming that humans would fly one day in machines. The Church said if God wanted humans to fly, He would have given us wings. The Church fathers put Galileo under house arrest until he died in 1642 CE, for saying that the Earth is round and that it is revolving around the sun. The Church said, the Earth does not move, it is like a cock on water carried by four mighty horses. In 1758 CE, the Church described inoculation and vaccination as Satan's jobs.
These are the narrow-minded people we are allowing to think for us in the year 2010 CE? They recruit the likes of senile in old age, retiring, former Chief Justice of England, Lord Denning; Jurist, Sir Edward Clark; Royal Professor of Law at Harvard University, Dr. Greenleaf, and former Chair of history at Oxford, Prof. Thomas Arnold, to support their senseless notion of resurrection. Does not finding a body in a grave automatically equate with resurrection? No witness has come forward yet to say they saw a body rise. Is it not possible that there was no body in the grave in the first place or that it could have been stolen as happens often these days? It could have even taken a walk because it is not easy to die nailed to a cross. Moses' body has not been found until now, but the Jews are not claiming that not finding it means it rose.
Judeo-Christianity mystified the religious world by elevating their ancestor Gods with the capital letter 'G' and down-grading other people's Gods with the small letter 'g.' All Gods, whether spelt with the capital letter 'G' or the small letter 'g' are ancestors who at one time or the other lived here on earth. Therefore, if intermediary Gods are necessary for anyone, they would not be alien ancestors. Whites and Arabs gave Africans, White ancestors to worship. The ultimate or universal source of spirituality or spiritual power is Goddess Ma'at, a higher spiritual energy source than the Judeo-Christian, Islamic male god. Traditional Africans, the ancestors of mankind, instinctively know this. That is why African traditional religion is so powerful. Beyond Goddess Ma'at is Dark Matter, an energy source. Dark Matter is to 'Spirit' what Matter is to our 'Physical Being.' No one in the world worships Dark Matter. That is because, like light, it does not ask to be worshipped. It is not a spirit; it is not transient; it spawned Goddess Ma'at and all her junior national and tribal Gods or gods of mankind. All national/tribal Gods or gods are ancestral spirits that humans create from deities of the spirit world.
Any race that forgets her ancestors is doomed to perpetual slavery and cannot make progress. We can begin right now to reclaim our essence and take back our leadership of the world from where our illustrious ancestors were pushed off inelegantly some 2000 years ago. The place to start is in our hearts and our spirit selves. We must reconcile with our ancestors. We must stop living a lie and individually vigorously, embark on efforts to recover our lost essence and grounds.
