Harriet Ross Tubman face will be on the $20 bill, replacing Andrew Jackson. Tubman is the best symbol of the untold story of America, where black and white men and women of God, and Churches dedicated to true Christian values helped the victims of injustice. Studying slavery, white and black, opens up the doors to America’s truths. It is the American Revolution, freeing the indentured servants of Europe, and the Civil War free oppressed peoples of color, which defines who we are as a country and a moral nation. Yes, a new nation came into existenance, with the Revolution, and the Union was secured through the Civil war, but it is the African American backstory that tells our glory.

Slavery in America: Historical Overview By Ronald L. F. Davis, Ph. D. California State University, Northridge At the time of the American Revolution, slavery was a profitable but not all-pervasive institution in the British colonies of North America. Most prosperous in the low-country areas, it was beginning […]

Using drugs to handle life’s realities can destroy experiencing the joy of who you are cold sober. Who are you without the drugs, can you handle life? Can you reach your purest self without chemical stimulation? You are who you are without drugs or alcohol. If you can sing, you can sing, if you can act, you can act, if you can play sports you can play sports. If chemical substances are needed to deliver performance, then you are cheating yourself and your audience. Learn to love and accept the authentic self without chemical alteration, it is there you find peace and true love. Someone will accept you with all your flaws, missed notes, missed dance steps, high sports achievements and a face with no make up. Performing for the wrong crowd could destroy the self that is you. Men survived difficult circumstances, because what they had to endure did not define who they were. In my ancestral literature my great great great grand father wrote, that although he was in Bondage, he was never a slave, and that spiritual freedom enabled him to purchase his whole family out of Bondage ( Alexander E. DeBose).

The idea that someone has the power to program, control and predict a human beings behavior through the development and use of a behavior altering substance is frightening. It suggests that with the use of drugs, legal or illegal, you are a puppet and someone has the […]

Prayer is not enough. Prayer will not reduce rage and violence. Prayer will not stop child sexual abuse or abuse of women. Prayer will not stop gang violence. The answer is in the Bible if and when we read it right. Before Jesus preached to people, He addressed the reality concerns of their life. Looking at how Jesus handled life’s problems can give directions for addressing world’s problems. We look to the miracle recorded in the Gospel. Food played a significant part in Jesus ministry to the world, suggesting that food causes behavioral changes in the brain releasing a calming substance effecting the pleasure nerve centers. Jesus gathered thousands of individuals on a hill to hear a message He was commissioned to deliver. Thousands of people with thousands of views and thousands of cultural beliefs. Thousands of people each possessing the human characteristics to fear, hate, anger, love peace, kindness, hostility, patience, joy and greed. With the bounty of the earth represented by four loaves of bread, and gift from the great seas, suggested by the two fish, He fed the multitude. The symbolic message is that all the resources needed to sustain life are contained within the earth, created million of God’s years before the creation of man. Food was provided on the earth before man and woman were created and given the task of caring for the earth and its future. The secret to addressing the problems confronting human civilizations may be the field and the vine. The bread of the field and the wine of the vine. The fish from our vast oceans may yet contain the mysteries of life. We must first feed people before praying for them. We must end world hunger before seeking world peace. We must feed people before we sit in conference on how to live together as riders on the same globe.

The G 20 G8 G5, leaders of the world should come together and agree to work on eliminating world hunger in a decade. Sometimes a man is angry because he is hungry and cannot feed his family or take care of their basic needs. Sometimes the hunger […]

The rein of racism and hatred is over, there are too many problems of global concerns to continue to fight school yard battle of the bullies to see who is better and stronger. Space and unity can offer answers to universal problems of health and prosperity. There are enough resources on this planet alone to feed and sustain 7 billion people and more. What other world’s can we explore, are there answers to mortality and an improved quality of life out there in the universe among the stars? When we have time to gossip, hate and try to destroy each other, it is an indication that there is too much free time around and idle minds and time can and will produce problems. If the last silly battle will be the battle of the gods, then we earthlings are not up to the task. We are not up to the battle of the gods, but we can humbly and courageously do our part for the betterment of humankind.

What color is our Bible? What color is our God? Are the answers to these questions the keys to having peace on earth? Who does God look like, and is it a He or a She or a combinations of both? Do we hate others because of our lack of clarity to the answers of these questions. Our friends and our group of preference will not only be people who look like us, but who also look like our God. Judgement of good and evil are determined by the color of the Bible, the color of the God we serve and how close in physical appearance someone is to that frame of reference. White and light, you are alright, dark and brown we do not care to have you around. It is human behavior, but it is not Christ behavior, and we call ourselves followers of the Christ.

What color is your Holy Scripture, get that straight and perhaps we can begin peace on earth. The churches of America are experiencing a transition in membership- where members can tolerate integration in schools and on jobs- but resent blacks and browns worshipping at the cross of […]

Wisdom is leaving our churches through Dementia, Alzheimer’s and absence of intergenerational activities. Churches are closing doors because the bridges between the past and the future are destroyed through health issues, cultural challenges and the arrogance of stupidity. It is time to stop standing by in helpless tears while our children, our young men, young women march as innocent dumb lambs over a hill of destruction.

It was through the church that children  learned how to avoid the dangers of  negative human behavior. Children who did not pay attention in school were forced to pay attention in church, through hours of God’s word and teaching about what is right, wrong, acceptable and not […]

God’s wisdom is in the Bible and other sacred religious scripture. Seeking negative scipture to validate the right to hate other groups is not of God but of man’s descriptions of his belief systems. Individuals seeking to reject or hurt others seek out human writings in the Bible, which validate the right to discriminate, reject, punish and even kill those who are different and present different life styles, creeds or beliefs. Ecclesiates and Proverbs are books of wisdom, if your preacher is not preaching from wisdom but rather from writings suggesting who is acceptable and not acceptable by God, it is a warning signal that you are hearing the soul of man and not the message of Godari.

The Apocrypha Around 330 BC, the Greeks under Alexander the Great conquered the Persians and established the Greek Empire. Judah became known as Judea, and for the next few hundred years it was governed by the descendants of Alexander’s generals. The Jews participated in the Greek invasion […]

. The spiritual formation of any person of color with roots in the Americas centers in and around a personal responsibility and relationship with God and His son Jesus the Christ. America needs to develop more awareness of what is happening to the oppressed peoples of Appalachia and some Bible belt southern areas caught in the culture of poverty and a time warp. Progress has been made with the African American, the Ellis Island American, and the millions of immigrants coming in from all parts of the world. There is no suggestion of the same level of progress demonstrated in the Appalachia areas. Racism, hatred, anger and frustrations are strong in areas where progress and opportunity are limited. Why has the rest of America made significant progress, black and white, and Appalachia remains trapped in the 19th and 20th century? There are areas of the country still fighting the Civil War, and fighting for the right to fly flags representing Civil War views and beliefs. Religion, and especially Christianity has failed these areas. They had no Moses to lead them out of Egypt; they are still trapped in Egypt under the occupation of a powerful outside government. It is time to drag Appalachia, kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Top institutions must be in place to educate good people out of ignorance. Free colleges preparing individuals for top paying American jobs, and opportunities to upgrade the quality of life for a man and his children must be provided at once. America can build nations, but she neglect home base just because the base in combative and hostile. America should not permit any of its people or its lands to withdraw from the Union and form states of stupidity and backwardness as a right. The Constitution does not give citizens the right to stupidity, and when in the national security of the country and its people, changes have to be made, and then it is time to make the changes.

 America used the church as the main transforming institution in the country, and with people declining to attend church, the transformation strategies will be more difficult. Politics is not religion, with politics, the methods used to persuade the minds of men to adjust behaviors for negative or […]

The symbols of blood and violence are not the way a compassionate God communicates with His/Her people. The ancient history of man is violent and symbolizes the long transitional period between Evolution and Creation. Man is an animal and animals need blood and meat, we are still in the beginning of our Creation stage. It is time for the major world religions to put down the Torah, the Bible, the Koran, and their stories of sacrifice and suffering and talk to each other. Start writing Creation stories of love, struggle, accomplishments and great adventures. Christianity is founded on blood and violence as described in the Mel Gibson film, The Passion of the Christ.

Film Review   The Passion of the Christ   The Passion of the Christ is a story about the last 12 hours of Jesus The Christ. The film tries to stay true to the words in the Bible, and, as does the Bible, uses the human mind to […]
