The STRIPES of Healing
This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own. The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty. Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience. “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.
Issue 3: State The Obvious
I want to pick up a little bit from the last issue where I said license was taken to commit whatever offense pops into the head in the name of God. Would you agree with me that God placed in writing his mistakes (as any creature of the creator could fathom a conclusion) for all of us to read, recall, and rejig. God revealing to us his greatest mistake when he turned over teaching his creation (mankind) about God to Satan. How Satan turned on God and convinced many angels to follow suit (although those angels only followed Satan because Satan promised them judges) and oppose God in his own house. Go figure huh. Wow, so God when he found out his chosen one turned on him he didn’t look to shift the blame or ask for healing before correcting his mistake. Boy, did he correct his mistake! He told Michael to handle his light work. Did he have to straighten up Heaven more than once? Right.
See, when you have citizens, all citizens to include government officials at all levels and the police at all levels, not subject to every law then that’s when order is moot. Refer back to the previous paragraph on whether every force of being in Heaven is accountable. Evangelicals be careful because all of you have been told there’s a get out of jail free card available only to you. Evangelicals you’ve been told for hundreds of years your precepts of man over God is right. Everyone who is not White is 3/5 a person. They are not humans as only Evangelicals get to determine what is a human being, and God is what I say God is and he does what the church (which is whatever crazy uncle is available) tells him.
As I stated in a previous issue, Evangelicals cannot speak for someone else especially someone in power. Check with the Bible and get back to me on whether Saul on the road to Damascus took responsibility for his own actions. I’m a Christian as well and I will never say God sent me a devil to lead me to Hell. God did not send Donald Trump to lead America. That statement by some of these so called pastors comes right up to the door of blasphemy. Remember when the Sadducees and Pharisees said Jesus cast out devils by the power of the devil? Reasoning that way would make since if these Evangelicals (Evan-devil-cals) knew what they were talking about and could back it up with scripture.
Would it be reasonable to say that these Evangelicals are misleading their followers? Maybe Satan and a third of the angels after being cast out of Heaven thought that God needed to extend to them an olive branch of reconciliation. Maybe God made it clear when you make a mistake you are the one responsible of correcting it. If correcting it means you caste out those that would seek to sow continued division in your house, so be it. I would liken it to burning your bridges what Satan and his followers attempted to do to God. When Satan and his angels tried to cross back over (if at all they realized they were wrong) by throwing a rope to other side it landed in a puddle of mud. Pick a side please!
America, listen to me. I’m not an elected official. I’m just an African American man born with the description of ‘colored’ on my birth certificate in 1966. I lived in poverty as a child. I have been discriminated against many times as a man of color. I have been to the heights of authority in many jobs and treated everyone with dignity and respect. Now all that being said, what I am today is a product of my mother and the United States Military. What I learned from my mother I had to read, recall, and rejig to finally understand what she meant to me over many years. Honestly it took that much time to get through my hard head, or as she told me several times I had a smart mouth that would bring me trouble. She was right. My service to my country taught me that one valuable lesson in leadership I will expound on here. ‘State the obvious”.
America just got rid of an engine that had recall written all over its’ maintenance record. When we make a mistake as a country it counts! One serious thing I’ve got to address right now. Please stop disparaging the word ‘charismatic’. The dictionary has ‘divinely’ in the meaning of the word ‘charisma’. Because Donald Trump got a lot of foolish people to follow him doesn’t connect him to the divinity! One other thing I keep saying Evangelicals. You are not going to get a pass at your judgment in front of the Almighty by saying you were just simply voting Republican. Good. That’s said and done.
Jiggery-pokery is a more fitting explanation of Donald Trump’s skill and appeal. Frankly let us not forget that he just continued playing on what was already baked into the minds of White America. The centuries of historical doctrination of White Supremacy in this young country. What did you expect these people to do when the country they’ve been taught were theirs just by the color of their skin was slipping away from them? What do you think brainwashed people will do when someone begins to tell them something different than what they’ve been hearing all their lives? What do you think people will do when they have never had a reason to use ‘reasoning’ or engage in the arena of ideas to build a consensus for their way of life? Right! Their way of life has never been challenged or scrutinized as valid for anyone that doesn’t look like them!
Why do you think there is this perpetual violent pushback by a certain segment of irrational White America against people of color? It hasn’t ended. Why? The answer is that there has never been an outreach program to that part of White America that still long for the times where ‘everybody stayed in their place’. Where old Jim Billy Jethro Harry Bubba made all the sense because they were the leaders of this uneducated sect of White America. The proof is right in your face! All these conspiracy peddlers are successful because they know the history of this country! They know enough never to give the truth to these low-educated people. They feed them enough to get them going in the direction they desire. I see it because I have studied and lived a life of Philosophy.
Like I said to everyone reading this digital newsletter. If you don’t want the truth there are several choices available to you elsewhere. Stating the obvious is what I’m here to do. Compromise with a band of marauders on a lonely road with no help in sight will more than likely hasten your demise. What is right and what is wrong are the only truths that matter. If it is right say it is right. If it is wrong say it is wrong. There is no need to consider someone’s feelings in the matter. I have seen both instances and I am here to tell you that the more effective route to take is telling the truth and living with the consequences. If you do that I promise you God will take care of you. Only if you are righteous in his ‘Word’ and not an Evangelical telling you what is right.
