What color is your God? The mental color of your God determines if you are an oppressor of mankind or a victim of oppression. Man is made in the image and likeness of God, and thus when we see man, we see God. The closer the resemblance to God, the more worthy the man; it is the perception and conception of the God principle that is preventing peace in the world in our time. The Christian God is German and presents the modern day image of what God is expected to be in the mind of men. Rome significantly influenced the German culture; Rome laid the foundation for modern day Christianity. The gods of ancient Rome could account for the 20th century killing of the Hebrew people in World War 2. The gods of ancient Rome could have inspired the continuation of slavery and oppression of American Nubian people in the 19th century. What color is your God and do you hate others through your religion and concept of that God?

“The earliest written form of the Germanic word God comes from the 6th century Christian Codex Argenteus. The English word itself is derived from the Proto-Germanic * ǥuđan. Most linguists agree that the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European form * ǵhu-tó-m was based on the root * ǵhau(ə)-, which meant either “to call” or “to invoke”.[4] The Germanic words for God were originally neuter—applying to both genders—but during the process of the Christianization of the Germanic peoples from their indigenous Germanic paganism, the word became a masculine syntactic form.[5]

German thought and theology seems to be influencing our politics, our education and our religions.  Facism is a German concept; segregation and racism are German thought patterns, and the superiority of one god or religion is not American. The strength of America comes from the Founding Fathers concept of the acceptance of the religious thought patterns of man and restricting its power to the individual and not goverment. The variables that unites us as a people are not core common beliefs about thought and religion, but the freedom to let the mind go where the spirit takes it, remembering the right to your spirit ends where my spirit beging.

    4. ^ The ulterior etymology is disputed. Apart from the unlikely hypothesis of adoption from a foreign tongue, the OTeut. “ghuba” implies as its preTeut-type either “*ghodho-m” or “*ghodto-m”. The former does not appear to admit of explanation; but the latter would represent the neut. pple. of a root “gheu-“. There are two Aryan roots of the required form (“*g,heu-” with palatal aspirate) one with meaning ‘to invoke’ (Skr. “hu”) the other ‘to pour, to offer sacrifice’ (Skr “hu”, Gr. χεηi;ν, OE “geotàn” Yete v).

There needs to be a conversation about race in America, and there needs to be a conversation about God. We cannot be a united people or united states if we do not have a common core belief system about who or what is our deity. We love our deity and get along best with those who look like our deity in form color and shape. If America is intended to be another European satellite then we can go on and continue to be little Anglo Saxons, if we are to be and do a new “thing” on this earth, then we must have clarity on who is “our” God, and what color is America’s God?
