But it is the image of a White Christ that has done the most damage of all. It implies that White Must be Holy-and all others bad. It hints at a Divine Birthright to rule. Jesus could not have been white, as the people of that region where ALL of Black, Brown & Red shades. Same with the entire Old Testament. Hair like lambs wool? Feet like Brass BURNT in an Oven? Hmmm... What did the Egyptians really look like? What about the Ethiopians? People born that close to the equator, not yet inter-mixed with other races, could be nothing but of a darker shade. Sumer aka Iraq, Arabia, India, etc. All of these lands were inhabited almost completely of Black & Brown complexions. And contrary to what the cameras show you now, still have significantly large numbers of darker citizens.
What's the point? POWER!!! When the Europeans invaded Asia, Africa, and the Americas, they didn't just come with guns. The most important weapon in their arsenal was The BIBLE. To the believer in Jesus Christ, would you question the person that looks just like him? Allegedly anyway. SMH. For centuries Church & State utilized totally fabricated images of religious icons & a revised version of history to push the rest of the world into subservience. And it has continued to work, as we generally refuse to believe & embrace the REALITY of the Mental Chains of Oppression & Brainwashing that bind us. My blog isn't intended to save the world or wake up everyone overnight; but every bit of information that counters the mis-information out there has to count for something. READ, STUDY, LEARN & GROW.
