There is a very strong notion and believe by African Christians that Jesus Christ will save them from suffering and reverse the many hurts inflicted on them by corrupt politicians and greedy Europeans invaders. Every corner you turn to in Africa, you find people on their knees wailing and begging “a supposed saviour” to come and rescue them. Day by day we are furnished with the gospel that Africa needs saving and that it is only the blood of Jesus that can make Africa whole again.
But one would be forced to wonder if this white Jesus is deaf, or if he has abandoned those who he promised to save from their tribulations. One wonders when Africans will wake up from their myopia to realize that they have been sold a lie. Yes, Jesus might have existed in History, but one hard fact is that “he is not coming to save Africans from the wickedness of this world. He is not coming now, neither is he coming later.”
The only people who can save Africa from her many woes are Africans. The Europeans who brought us the religion that contains the “Jesus promise” are solving their problems through crooked and genuine means. They are not kneeling down and wailing to White Jesus to come and save them. They are busy invading nations and taking their resources, either by force or through cunning diplomacy, while they push the propaganda and gospel of Jesus Christ to Africans.
Quick question, dear African: How many churches do you see crowded in Europe these days? If the Europeans who brought Jesus Christ to you, still believe in him, then why are they abandoning Christianity and legalizing all forms of immoralities? This dear African. Think!!!
And please don’t say they will go to hell, and you will go to heaven for believing their lies. No, they won’t. That is because there is no hell, and there is no heaven. We Africans have always believed in reincarnation, and that is the way to go. If Africans must go to heaven, then they should build that heaven here on earth, just like every other race in the world is doing.
We have been held back by very deceptive gospels here in Africa. The gospel of turning the other cheek, and the gospel of vanity, have kept Africa backwards and docile. Preachers go on and on about how we should turn the other cheek when slapped or assaulted. But not even the Vatican (Rome) or Israel turns the other cheek when enemies assault them. No. They pick up their guns, the Bishops and Popes bless the guns and they return the slap to the enemy or the one who assaulted them.
The vanity gospel is even worse because it keeps Africans at a level where they feel that they should not aspire to so much – a world where too much wealth is a sin. Now can a people build and move forward and out of poverty, when their gospels encourage them to be poor? The answer is a resounding No!!!
Ever since Europeans started the colonization of Africa in 1885, Africans have been praying to Jesus to come to solve their problems, to come and rescue them. And for over 130 years, Jesus has not answered. He is busy blessing the Europeans and Americans more as they steal from Africa. And when we complain, you hear stupid Africans say: “Gods time is the best”. That is one line that has kept many Africans docile for years.
For example, the Churches in Nigeria have been praying for as long as anyone can remember. But the corruption, strife, death, and discord in Nigeria get worse every year. The Catholic church in Nigeria even has a “prayer for Nigeria in distress” and a “Prayer against Bribery and corruption in Nigeria”.
Now how will Jesus stop corrupt politicians and public servants from stealing the country dry? Why are America and China not praying to Jesus to come and save them from corruption? Why do their governments set up institutions and policies that keep their leaders in check? If Jesus was so effective and was all and all, why is China, a Pagan nation, prospering more than Nigeria, with her hundreds of thousands of churches?
Many health and financial challenges today in Africa are not hard to solve through African traditional religions and a sheer determination to succeed. There is no food for a lazy man, and no African was created to be lazy. Africans started to depend too much on the white man’s god, and spend too much time praying, instead of working. Many Africans believe so much in the “manner from heaven” gospel. That has led to many Christians spending their Monday mornings and so forth in the church when they are meant to be out working. Now how do you pray more than you work, and expect manna from heaven? How?
