Two thousands years before and after the birth of Jesus, and Paul’s introductions of Christianity into the world, there were thinkers. Perhaps if we are going to address world shaking questions of man and his identity and purpose, we should go back to the greatest thinkers of mankind. If we cannot find the answer working through the Bible and the Christian religion, then perhaps we are asking the wrong questions, or asking the questions in the wrong way. Socrates and Plato, Greek scholars may shine some light on this question of solving humanities problems.

Research material. Plato more or less discovered on his own was that mankind is born with knowledge. That is, knowledge is present in the human mind at birth. It is not so much that we “learn” things in our daily experience, but that we “recollect” them. In […]

Black lives matter is designed to change the fabric of a society. Christianity teaches that black lives do not matter. The European and American education system teaches that Black lives do not matter. It is impossible to use the intellectual mind or religion to solve this problem, because the problem is in the mind. If the solution to the merging battle grounds between police, the goverment enforcer of cultural beliefs, and the people, and the belief that all men are born with the rights to life, liberty and the pursuits of happiness, are to be achieved without a blood bath and another civil war, then a different path of leadership must develop. America cannot solve this problem, because America is the problem. America, the step child of England and Germany was founded on Eugenics.There is no way that the high priest of Christian thought or the intellectual minds of Ivy League Universities can solve this problem without going to the source, and time is almost out. Power does not surrender except through force. Black men do not march into ovens, the topic is not up for discussion.

Leadership Challenges for  Nations in Transition England conquered the world with the Bible and a sword. Nations of the world were taught all they had to do was to obey, submit and follow the words of the Lord and they would not feel the sword on their necks. […]

The greatest hate love relationship in the world takes place between the two great oceans of North America. Black men white men and red men fought together and against each other to bring the greatest experiment of human diversity into existence. They marry each other’s women and father a rainbow of children, and blend cultural lines so that it is difficult to tell where one begins and the other ends. The DNA of America represents this struggle. This project could be about anyone of these groups. What role did religion and the church play in this exciting American trilogy and how they survived the process and each other?

When where and how did the Black man in America become wariors? It is necessary to look at who these people of God are to understand the events occurring today in order to make correct decisions. America has never been and never will be an occupied territory […]

The sons of Ham will not sit quietly while the German spirit in man work out the “final solution” for the problem of racism. Ham’s sons have used their resources to purchase high quality weapons, equal to the fire power of any solution thinker. Trained in military thinking from the many wars fought in over seas lands, the sons of Ham are mentally and emotionally soldiers. Germany depended on a good religious people to follow their prayer books and march quietly into ovens. Men women and children were subjected to medical procedures that only the depraved mind would inflict on another human being. Doctors, scientist and soldiers were able to do this because they were programmed to believe that the populations they were destroying were subhumans. The sons of Ham will not permit that to happen in the United States of America. A man fights back. As tragedic as it seem, the deaths, of 5 policemen will save the lives of millions. The death of these five men has shocked the brain of America into the conscious awareness of what they are doing. Many Germans said after WW2 that they were unaware of what was happening in their country, the sons of Ham have awakened the mind of America with a snipper bullet in Dallas.

Racism is a disease, which overtakes an ignored and uneducated mind and the need for a living sacrifice is required to appease the gods of injustice. Black America avoided a lot of this suffering and behaviors because of specific planned strategies put in place early in slavery, […]

Racism was taught to America through Christianity, history and the social sciences. We have been taught to be racist from Europe. Historical race concepts have varied across cultures and over time, and have been controversial for social, political and scientific reasons. Until the 19th century, race was thought by many to constitute an immutable and distinct type or species which shared particular racial characteristics, such as body constitution, temperament and mental capacities. One concept, that of Christian Western Europe, conceived of the races as constituting a hierarchical chain of life known as the Great Chain of Being, which was believed to have been created by God, in which the people thought the Christian European races were closest to God in perfection.

European medieval models of race generally mixed Classical ideas with the notion that humanity as a whole was descended from Shem, Ham and Japheth, the three sons of Noah, producing distinct Semitic (Asiatic), Hamitic (African), and Japhetic (Indo-European) peoples. This theory dates back to the Judeo-Christian tradition, […]

Riverside Church, an interracial, interdenominational, international, is the Flag ship of American Protestantism, and as such stands in the forefront of addressing racism in Christian Churches in America. Eleven o’clock Sunday morning has been called the most segregated hour in America; it is church time in the United States, and the time set aside to go to the various religious institution, which represent our faith. We may work together in areas of employment; we may ride the same transportation services in order to get to that work, but when it comes to spending time with thee Almighty, Americans prefer to sit next to family and friends or at least someone who looks like them. In America the country is better than the people. The views and values of the people do not always reflect the positions or visions of the country. It is the same in many churches. The church must at times be better than the congregation. The country holds high standards that each citizen must reach for. The mission of the church may at times exceeds the wishes and desires of the congregation. America works because she operates on this principle. Churches that are effective also work for the same reason. We must all seek to be guided by the Holy Spirit, and let our better angels guide and direct our feet.

The Leadership Role of Riverside Church Riverside Church is not a black church. It history and experiences are different from the Black Church in America. Riverside Church is more like America, the country. People come to America from all over the world looking for a second chance […]

Make America great again? When has America been greater than she is today. America ended slavery white and black, an institution started by the Mother land England. America struggled to get over fear and racism as she learned to respect each man regardless of his financial conditions in life. America took the people dying in the streets during the turn of the century and developed programs to address needs. America has been through some hard times, but always she was up to the challenge of making this one nation under God. We are great because of the visions of our Founding Fathers and the words of our Constitution, a living document, with the power to grow as we grew. We the people are the vision, we are the words and spirit of the Constitution. Before we use the words “again” about America, let us make sure we know and remember how far we have come and we are not finished yet.

Make America great again suggests that America is not great. It suggests that the America, which opened its doors to the wretched poor of the world is not a great nation. The America that provided shelter for millions coming out of Europe is not great. Only a […]

This paper will use Hermeneutics, the tools of history and cultures to look into the search for the historical Jesus. Is it possible to study the geographical areas of the world to determine the birth and life of a given individual? Those of us, who are Christians, accept the life, death and resurrection of Jesus without question. I believe, help thou my curiosity. Today, in the parts of the world so vividly described by the writers of the bible, American troops travel. The media in an effort to describe location and activities, record biblical names and places. The conflict in the Middle East between Israel and Palestine is making history come alive in the 21st century. We can get a look into the lives of ancient people, whose traditions and life styles may not have change significantly in over 2,000 years. Today’s world’s events help us to understand that what we think we may know about people may not be factual. We know that Israel is today, as it was yesterday. We know that the children of Abraham are still in conflict over birthrights. We see the bitter dispute between neighbors, and we can just imagine what it was like during the time of Jesus.

What is the spiritual language of violence? Did the violence of the people attract them to God centered violence, or did God create a violent people in order to demonstrate his compassionate and mercy? There are many paths to find God; there are also many paths to […]

Harlem on my mind. Charles Rangel has retired after serving Harlem for many years. We thank him for his dedications and his service. Rangel, who followed Adam Clayton Powel Jr. as the political leaders of Harlem, led Harlem through its most difficult times into the light of a new day. Most of the story tellers are gone, and color in Harlem is being replaced by individuals who come to celebrate and be part of the gem between two great rivers in New York City. The new comers are welcomed, Harlem has always had a multicultured diverse population. The new comers will know how to get the best of the schools and universities located in its historical community. Many great stories sweeten the bitter air of our memories of surviving the harsh, loving and demanding streets of the mother land. Our young people are not interested in our stories or our glories, most attend private or charter schools and are molded to be outstanding sons and daughters of Harlem.

Harlem on my mind Harlem is not some mythical place. It is not the battleground to fight all the battles of injustice. It is not that sacred streets where imaginary people believe imaginary things happened. Harlem is the seat of capital for over 35 million Black people. […]
