Below is another senseless message from one of the many wilfully ignorant Nigerian Christians who have made it their duty to force down their blue-eyed blonde Jew saviour called Jesus, down my throat. I posted on my Facebook wall excerpts from my blogpost ‘Because you are a decent person does not mean your religion is not harmful: My 24 hour ordeal with religion‘ and this person decided to respond by sharing the post on his wall and tagging me with the following response:
Yemisi, History is all planned out. Everything is in stages. When God’s time came to move The Gospel around the world, He made Constantine, emperor of Rome, embrace and adopt Christianity. Then Europe went on exploration of foreign lands – Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, England, etc. The Gospel spread, although so did atrocities, pillaging, etc. God is in charge. He has planned out history. What would the world have been had Christianity not outlawed human sacrifice and all forms of idolatry. Yemisi would have been a helpless woman only good as pleasure object of some king, chief or egoistic male chauvinist. Thank God for Christianity, Yemisi. Jesus reigns!…
According to this ignoramus called Ikechukwu Nwanze, history is all planned out by God. God is in charge. Well going by this senseless belief of Ikechukwu and others who share his belief, enslavement of his black ancestors and the plundering of his ancestral land by European invaders were parts of Gods plan. It was all part of God’s plan to make the invaders spread the Gospel while committing atrocities and pillaging their way through other people’s lands. And going by the latest happenings in Nigeria, God made Boko Haram kidnap the missing 200 girls. It was all part of God’s master plan because God is always in control.
The senseless black Christian asked
What would the world have been had Christianity not outlawed human sacrifice and all forms of idolatry.
Obviously, Ikechukwu Nwanze thinks that before the advent of Christianity, his ancestors were busy making human sacrifices and spent their life worshiping idols. This ignoramus believes that without Christianity, we will all be busy killing ourselves, living in trees and carving out idols to worship. Oh, for how long can we continue to blame the thinking of brainless people like Ikechukwu Nwanze on colonialism? He obviously has failed somewhere along the line to switch on the brain that took billions of years to evolve. What a waste of space!
As Harriet Tubman said “I freed a thousand slaves, I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” Such is the pathetic case of many black Christians. If only they would emancipate themselves from mental slavery.
What this brainless black Nigerian Christian is saying is that without Christianity, he would in this age, be making human sacrifices and worshiping idols. Well, I do know that there are laws criminalising the killing of another human being. It is part of our evolved legal system and this has nothing to do with Christianity. Before missionaries invaded Africa with their Christianity, there were and still are, native laws criminalising murders. Why do brainwashed black people like Ikechukwu Nwanze think before the advent of Christianity, their ancestors were murderous people intent on sacrificing their fellow human beings to Idols? As Chris Rock rightly observed “A black Christian is like a black person with no memory”
As per worshipping of idols, one thing that is sure is that the likes of Ikechukwu Nwanze still worship idols. Or what do they think the cross /crucifix they wear and pray to, is?
Dear Christian, your cross/crucifix is simply an idolatry carving of a semi-naked tortured man nailed to a cross. That you have replaced the carved idols worshipped by your ancestors with a wooden or golden cross does not change the fact that you are still idol worshippers.
Your crucifix is an idol figure.
Your rosary is an idol figure.
The symbolic eating of the flesh and blood of your precious Jesus Christ at mass is an idolatry practice.
Your cross is a symbol of execution, not of salvation.
Some of us do not need religion to tell us what is good or bad. Morals just like human beings predates religion, religion does not predate morals. As Albert Einstein said, “If people are good only because they fear punishment and hope for a reward, we are a sorry lot indeed”. And to quote Christopher Hitchens, “Human decency is not derived from religion, it precedes it.”
I’d advise you get educated and grow a brain before throwing your religious rubbish at me. As Steven Weinberg said, “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things. But for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.”
Ikechukwu Nwanze went on to inform anyone that cares to listen that if not for Christianity
Yemisi would have been a helpless woman only good as pleasure object of some king, chief or egoistic male chauvinist
Actually if I were to be governed by your Christian doctrines, as a woman, I would be expected to never be heard in public, not contest an election and should be stoned to death if found not to be a virgin on my wedding day. Oh, what a lovely equality rights your Christian doctrines confer on women! I must say, thank God your bible is not my constitution!
You seem to have forgotten that the beloveths of your God in the bible were some egoistical male chauvinist kings, Solomon and David readily comes to mind. In fact, your bible heroes are mostly male chauvinist pigs just like your God. Like father like son, one could say.
Your God endorses slavery and discrimination still you want me to hold your God in high esteem. You really must be an ignoramus! I wonder if you Christians read your bible after all, to most Christians, the bible is like a software licence, nobody actually reads it. They just scroll to the bottom and click “I agree”.
Do you really think your Christianity came to free me from the shackles of patriarchy? Hmm, your bible and Skydaddy says otherwise. Do you even read your bible at all? Now, let me quote some bible verses that illustrate just how well I would fare as a black person and a woman if your bible were federal constitution.
Leviticus 25:44-46 (New International Version)
44 Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. 45 You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. 46 You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.
1 Timothy 2:11-15 (New International Version)
11 A woman[a] should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b] she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women[c] will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
1 Corinthians 14:34-35 (King James Version)
34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
Deuteronomy 22:20-21 (New International Version)
20 If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the young woman’s virginity can be found,21 she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done an outrageous thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil from among you.
This, dear deluded Christian, is what your bible preaches.
However, Ikechukwi Nwanze still advised
Thank God for Christianity, Yemisi.
Yeah, thank God that a Skydaddy got bored 4,000 years ago and decided to create the universe in six days.
Thank God that this Skydaddy created the first human being whom he named Adam out of clay and created the first woman out of one of Adam’s ribs.
Thank God that this Skydaddy planted a tree of knowledge in the garden of Eden and asked that Adam and Eve should not eat from it as eating from it would, horrors of horrors, make them wise!
Thank God that this Skydaddy created a talking snake to tempt Eve to eat from the fruit of Knowledge.
Thank God that the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient Skydaddy who according to Ikechukwu Nwanze, had history all planned out, surprisingly did not know that Adam and Eve would ignore his warning and eat from the fruit of life.
Thank God that this God got so angry that he cursed Eve and the whole of womankind with the pains of childbirth and cursed humankind with ‘Original Sin’.
Thank God that even after drowning the whole of planet earth, save for Noah and a pair of every living things in Noah’s ark, thousands of years later, this Skydaddy was still carrying this grudge and anger of betrayal that he still could not could find it in his heart to forgive humans for the ‘Original Sin’ committed allegedly by Adam and Eve.
Thank God that Skydaddy hatched a plan about two thousand years ago that would finally make him able to forgive humankind the ‘original sin’.
Thank God Skydaddy’s plan involved raping and impregnating the virgin fiancé of a carpenter named Joseph.
Thank God that Skydaddy’s plan was to give birth to himself and sacrifice himself on a cross so that he can finally forgive us of this original sin.
Thank God Skydaddy said to himself “I am going to create man and woman with original sin. Then I am going to impregnate a woman with myself as her child so that i can be born. Once alive, I will kill myself as a sacrifice to myself. To save you from the sin I originally condemned you to.”
This, dear deluded Christian, is Christianity explained.
So, before you asked me to thank God for Christianity, let me ask you, why your God couldn’t find it in his heart to forgive without raping, killing, pillaging and sacrificing himself to himself? What is there to thank God for in such senseless, murderous, egoistic, sadistic and childish tale you call Christianity?
Ikechukwu Nwanze screams “Jesus reigns!…”
Well, so you say. If Jesus is the reigning monarch, I guess we should blame him for everything that is wrong with this planet. Why bother to blame President Goodluck Jonathan for not finding the missing girls abducted by Boko Haram when clearly Jesus is the reigning ruler?
God is in control, you say. Surely, we should put the blame squarely on Jesus, who according to your biblical script is also GOD. Well, tell this reigning Jesus to bring back our missing girls.
Tell your God whom you claim has history planned, that his plan for the abducted girls and the starving children in Africa, sucks.
Also, don’t forget to ask your God why there is a gaping hole where your brain should be.
