The Role of Christianity in Slavery/Slave trade.

Religions are not based on truth and it is for this reason there is NOT one true religion. There are over a thousand gods on our planet all of which followers claim to be true. In the same lens Christians view Hinduism is the same way Hindus also view Christianity etc.

Christianity and Islam are the two most popular religions across the world yet the most dumbest and blood thirsty in terms of philosophy (and history) as compared to Kemet spirituality, Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism etc. even though there are inherent dumbness in all of them.

In our cosmology as Africans, there is no Allah, Jesus, Lao Tzu, Buddha etc and so we didn’t know about heaven, hell, a sky daddy and his satan until we were invaded.

Christianity has never been an African religion as many claim. Usually “religitards” cite Ethiopia as the roots of Christianity which is largely false because there were no Christians in Ethiopia until Italian invasions.

The already-existing Ethiopian spiritual practices were quite similar to what Roman missionaries taught and so brainwashing and corrupting them was so easy.

The original Ethiopian doctrine which Europeans plagiarized and incorporated into their bible taught of an Ethiopian teacher who was born in a cave and not like that of Jesus who was born by immaculate conception and in a manger as Christianity propagates. The move to accept and promote Christianity was initiated by their leader Ezana.

Africans in the sub-saharan and the other regions were largely introduced to Christianity and Islam through colonialism, slavery and coercion. The imperialist in charge of a conquered territory determined the kind of religion that was tolerated hence a British imperialism promoted Christianity whereas Arab imperialism promoted Islam.

The holy books of these two religions are in fact slave manuals and so they were introduced to Africans at the time Caucasians and Arabs set on African shores to hunt for slaves.

Their holy books distort the true view of reality hence make one a good slave. All the information in there are corrupted; there is no truth in them and the more you rely on them, the more you ruin yourself and the environment.

In the case of Christianity with regards to slave trade, King James, king of England and the author of the popular king James version of the bible was a notorious slave trader who  owned thousands of African slaves. It is also recorded that he was a homosexual who loved his cousin whom he later even murdered.

King James’ love for slave trading was the reason he inserted lots of verses in the bible which encouraged and promoted slavery with less or no form of revolt from the enslaved and in this case Africans. Some of his verses read as follows:

Ephesians 6:5 “slaves obey your earthly masters with respect and fear and with sincerity of heart just as you would obey christ”

Colossians 3:22 “slaves obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the lord”

Titus 2:9 “Teach slaves to subject to their masters in everything, not to talk back at them 10 “and not to steal from them but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about god our savior attractive”.

1 Timothy 6:1 “All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that gods name and our teaching may not be slandered”.

These verses coupled with many other ones in Exodus, Leviticus and Psalms were read to slaves during mass hence  the slaves accepted the atrocities visited on them by their masters as divine and hardly revolted.

In Ghana at Elmina castle, on top of the male dungeon was the church, which was responsible for brainwashing the slaves before they were transported.
