Christian, Lent and Hypocrisy!

easterThis is the season of Lent and this weekend represents the highlight of the season when willl Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Some Barbadians are justified in their argument that Barbadians have shifted from traditional values with an anchor in a Christian upbringing that have served us well up to recent. This is debate for another time.

The blogmaster is of the view that traditional values with its Christian underpinning should be manifested in how individuals that subscribe to the faith treat with their fellow man on a 24/7 basis. It was with great interest a statement credited to Minister of Youth Stephen Lashley’s resonated with the BU household.

Indeed I believe that we need to spend more time in the media highlighting more of the good work that they continue to do. I think there is an overbalance or excessive commentary in print and electronic media and now on social media, which seeks to highlight every possible negative activity of some of our youth,” he said…

I think that it is a national scandal and it gives an embellished reflection of our young people. I have a lot of confidence in the ability of our young people to rise above an over reliance on negativity.

  • Minister Stephen Lashley

Here is a simple point we want to share with the minister. Nothing wrong with his statement if taken at face value. The blogmaster is also concerned about the malicious and ignorant use of social media. However as leaders, the blogmaster is of the view, we must practice what we preach to achieved positive outcomes.

Surely Minister Stephen Lashley is aware that some of the most vile communication shared in the social media space is perpetrated by ministers of government, Senators, parliamentary secretaries and surrogates from the political class (political parties)? The blogmaster can produce the evidence in a heartbeat to support but we will compromise our position- demonstrated for the past 10 years- that what is shared with the blogmaster, stays with the blogmaster.

The BU household extends best wishes to the BU family for the season.

If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. But do not care to convince him. Men will believe what they see. Let them see.

    @ David BU

    Today is generally regarded by Christians as one of our most solemn. It demonstrates a fundamental lesson of populism. The crowd that praise a leader when he appears to be the answer to their hopes can demand his execution when he fails to deliver on their expectations.

    The leader is always in control though. He alone determines his mission and is not bound to make other persons expectations his. Most Christians use Lent as a season to assess whether he/she is still on the high moral road and what he needs to do to remain there.

    Uneasy is he that wears the crown ,even when it is a crown of thorns.

    Let us have a quiet day of reflection on how we can make things better for ourselves and our fellowman.

    The truth is that this whole architecture is grounded in provable lies.

    Indeed, if Afrikan peoples are to rise like the Sun at this time of year, the first order of business would be to jettison all those lies found in the book, from cover to cover.

    We know much more, and in the most minute of details, about events which happened tens of thousands of years ago. And all the significant events ever to occur have left marks.

    Where are the independently verifiable marks left by your contrived story. A story rooted in a desire to enslave the world.

    We know, with certainty, that there were 16 instances where humans were said to have died and risen again. Some thousands of years before your ‘significant’ time line. All stories, merely efforts to understand reality, to mimic the Sun

    Yet, who would want us ro assume that time started a mere 2 thousand years ago. That because those events were mired is folklore that we should prefer the most familiar lies. Oh no!

    These ‘original’ lies have us where we are today.

    “On this day almost two thousand years ago it is reported that Pilate asked Jesus what is truth.”

    Is it true to say that “on this day almost two years ago” the Jews celebrated the start of the Passover?

    But we are glad you have accepted, finally, the ‘fact’ that the swapping of one myth for another is an exercise in ‘childish’ futility.

    So why exchange a king David for a Jesus King of the Jews the same Jesus Bar Abbas (Son of the Father) was chosen over Yeshua?

    It seems that Christians ‘stole’ their religion of myths from the Jews who purloined theirs from the Sumerians and Egyptians with the divine worship of the Aten at the centre of their monotheistic faith copied from the ‘cult’ of Akhenaten.

    It’s time black people chose a religion from which they can derive benefits instead of paying the costs, always.

    So in their quest for a mythological Saviour why not chose from a list of Chinese deities to ‘believe in’? Why not choose Shén before Zhǔ or Caishen before the ‘black’ Ji Gong?

    Black people must remove the curse of darkness from their eyes and receive that halo of light of wisdom from the ultimate Source of life on this planet.

    Here is one mythical statement that is the encircling ring of the Light of Truth found in all ‘human’ religions.

    “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

    I hold only ONE position when it comes to religion and other god-related myths. And it is a ‘Scientific’ one.

    That is, the Star (from among the billions in our galaxy and born from Mary’s womb) to which we are closest and which you may wish to call the “SUN” is mankind’s ONLY GOD. The Source of all life on this planet called Gaia or Pachamama.

    Not the god of Abraham or any in the pantheon of those found in Hinduism or any man-concocted moral map of astrology.

    Just Sol Invictus or the Aten for me!

    And here is a position you ought to consider after examining every graven image of your Sweet Jesus and his heavenly brethren with halos around their heads of Pure Solar adoration:

    “After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
    There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.
    Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.”

    How else could the European keep control over the slaves without killing them (as they did to the real people of Pachamama) other than by creating a white god made in their and implanting it in the minds of their black slaves?

    Over the ages, various classes of peoples have used different contrived ‘gods’ to achieve their various interests – like the USA currently uses the ‘god’ of freedom, democracy and capitalism to pursue their own albino-centric ends.

    Superseding all such brass bowlery is the FACT that this complex, finely-balanced, intricate world in which we live …must have been conceived, designed and created by some kind of supernatural INTELLIGENCE…..

    It is THIS overriding, supernatural, intelligent entity that Bushie identifies as BBE…. or GOD.

    If you want to discuss why such an entity may have allowed various groups of brass bowls to do shiite for extended periods …then that is an altogether different discussion….

    …but to confuse BBE with such various collections of petty brass bowls doing shiite over the ages goes against the grain of your normal analytical approach.

    The truth is always simple in hindsight.

    The Bible was NOT written by brass bowls.. white or black..
    nor was it written FOR brass bowls. It is there for adoptees.

    Brass bowls were ‘used’ to produce a document in such a way that – even those who wrote it, fail to understand or comprehend it.
    It was NEVER intended to explain the mysteries of BBE to brass bowls… that job is intended to be done by the very things of nature all around us every day….

    In the same way that some ‘smart-assed’ politicians use their political manifesto to bamboozle the multitude of jackasses that abound, why would you be surprised that albino-centric demons would grab the opportunity to use the greatest of all mysteries (EVER) to bamboozle generations of black brass bowls…. and make unbelievable riches for themselves?

    Trust Bushie Pacha….
    you are MUCH to hung up about the history of white manipulation of blacks.

    The REAL story there is one of REALLY stupid black brass bowls(RS BBB’s) who REJECTED their NATURAL community-centric legacy of being the ones CREATED in BBE’s own image, and instead chose to convert to the albino-centric way of selfishness and greed.

    So somebody had/have to sort the RS BBB out…
    let us see how long it takes before we recognise the value of sackcloth and ashes….

    “…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

    Until then, the demons must do what demons do….

    This is a too simplistic a narrative for us to accept. You are merely blaming the victims for the wickedness of those bringing you your demonic religion.

    Then you resort to the same shiiiite book which was written by White people and demonic Jews to control the world.

    You tell Black people that we must know that We are the ones who created everything, the universes, or that we were there first, when your BBE said ‘let us’ but you quote from the book which conspired to destroy us. This fails the test for logic.

    ””’The Bible was NOT written by brass bowls.. white or black..
    nor was it written FOR brass bowls. It is there for adoptees. ””’

    We have long known that the Piso family were the primary forces behind the writing of your bible.

    We have long known that many ‘gatherings’ of the Catholic church were called over 2000 years, and up until recently, to try to perfect an imperfect story which kept changing, to try to correct mistakes made previously. All this to keep biblical lies going.

    Does this sound like anything near perfection?

    This is a fiction, We are however surprised that you would resort to a form of Paganism to support your BBE. A BBE based of Paganism itself. Otherwise your religion pretends it is somehow above those who look to nature for meaning.

    Since your god has no desire to destroy the White people who you agree are the Devil we must conclude that he does not exist and is barely a fictional character, created to eternally mislead.

    What about the opportunities lost to the gazillions of brass bowls of ‘golden birthright vintage’ – who, but for their apparently endemic addiction to brassbowlery… could be inheritors of the vast richness of BBE themselves?

    If it were up to you…
    How else would you seek to bring black brazen bowls to their senses – other than by putting them under the hands of clear demons – who excel at the very materialistic greed and spitefulness that the brass bowls have foolishly chosen as their new adopted way…?

    First of all we have never assumed that life on earth is any singular project. The universe/s is/are so large that we have tended by assume that there is a better than even chance for there to be life on many other planets within many universes.

    Indeed, the universes are still being created, expanding, by the minutes. So there was never a ‘created’ as popularly assumed.

    In memory of the great British scientist Stephen Hawking, thanks for everything given us!

    In this Bushie is no different than the same White people who up to 500 years ago thought the earth was flat.

    Your bible is still based on notions that life could only happen on earth, and so are your misguided philosophies, however stated.

    We would expect that once life is ‘discovered’ elsewhere another Council Nicaea or Council of Chalcedon (451) will be called to try to correct the so-called word of god as has been done when White people realized their ignorance about falling off the edge earth.

    Bushie, your ‘logic’ gives you no options but to blame victims for the acts of others. This could never make sense.

    Bushie, you are a Catholic as well. Whether you accept it or not. All Christians are Catholics. You pretend not but you are as a matter of historical fact.

    Our engagement with the lying bible is not ‘trifling’ and not ‘petty’. Ours is a sustained, broad-based total denunciation of the most wicked piece of propaganda ever known to man or mammon.

    And while we agree that Afrikan peoples where the first, for billions of years the only and still the dominant genetic formation given Pachamama the nonsense about some creator has little resonance with us.

    The argument of creationism vs evolution is a duopoly itself created by White people and must be rejected. Before they emerged, for millions of years, that resort was unnecessary. A mere straw man concocted by your European friends to be relevant.

    You say BBE is a Black man’s god. Why do you have to keep looking to this mystery god? We don’t need him as much as he needs us.

    Wrong…..Simple and undeniable analysis clearly points to a time = zero when everything actually started. Evolutionist try to explain this point via a “big bang” theory.

    However, if you understand the concept of entropy, and consider the impact of time, it is also clear that there HAD to be a time where T=0.
    More importantly, it makes more sense that this was a point in time when entropy was HIGH – since entropy degrades with time – as opposed to a ‘big bang’ scenario – when entropy would be low (chaotic), and there would thus be the need to ‘explain’ how order could so uncharacteristically come out of such disorder. (evolution)

    You may recall that….
    When BBE created the world, the Creator remarked on the exceptionally HIGH level of entropy (everything was perfect). …..But that is in the bible so let’s drop it….. LOL

    The facts and the science therefore DO support a ‘created’.

    Your bible stories cannot be trusted. We are to traverse the universe/s to find out for ourselves. The same way we confirmed the earth was not flat as your forebears claimed until recently. That is real paranoia.

    ””You have dismissed all the natural, physical evidence around you that points to a brilliant, superlative, super-human engineering mind having carefully and – with minute detail – created the experience that we call life on earth…… and why?
    …because of confused and flawed white people like Hawkins and Darwin….””

    And you continue to disregard the primary evidence that earth is a minor planet in the scheme of things. That there are billions of planets with infinite possibilities to sustain life. Earth is central to your dogma but nothing special within these orders of magnitude..

    And more importantly the universe is still creating itself so it could have never been creatED by the fiction of a g o d. We could still hear after 15 billion years the sounds made by its birth.

    There is no guilt here or any attempt for its transference.

    What we do have is an allergy for imprecisions.

    We guess you would prefer to have people like Stephen Hawkins who demystify the product of your dreamland treaty like Galileo et al.

    That devil of ignorance created by men is defeated by men.

    Bushie knows that only too well – from personal experience.

    The intent is not to get Pacha to understand, but just to recognise the fragility of the logical stance being championed against the bible….. and frail it is….

    Pacha is unconsciously using the actions, misdeeds, weaknesses and even the strengths of his nemesis – the white enslavers – to throw out the baby with the bathwater …. or in this case, the actual REAL truth with the lotta religious dogma that abounds.

    Normally Bushie just would just let such an attitude fly, …but Pacha is so naturally talented intellectually, that there does exists a slim chance, – out of pure academic interest perhaps- of a briefly open mind for an honest review of the facts….

    The rest would be history…. 🙂

    I should be flattered to be included among the enlightened ,but that is an accolade which I do not seek nor accept. I am in a perpetual quest to find the light. I have no intentions to arrogate to myself the claim of having the light. It is a journey which we all have to take individually.

    I think though that there is a problem of semantics. What do you mean by embracing the heathen? In my belief system there are no heathens. They are people who worship other gods.
    In the story you cited the prostitute was a Jew,the same religion as Jesus and the potential stoners.

    The point here is that you are a believer and the analogy was to demonstrate that the stone throwers were also believers who were willing to stone the prostitute . However, it took the intervention of Jesus to halt them in their tracks by the statement, that he without sin should cast the first stone. This was in reference to your comment that embracing a heathen is risky business? It seems Jesus response to the situation embodied kindness and forgiveness, a willingness to reach out to sinners. If the reference to your earlier statement was misunderstood please accept an apology.

I am no longer seeing life and the meaning of a successful life through the white man’s eyes. I have turned their history books upside down and rejected their jaundiced view. I am not cowed into silence or inaction on matters of social justice. I am committed to improving the lot of my brothers and sisters no matter how mentally enslaved they might be. I do not rely on the opium. I believe in fighting for change now. Also, dogmatic bathwater was never my thing. Like Simple Simon, I keep it simple. All things can be used for good or evil. Religion is no different. I may not be perfect but I am much improved. I would say that Christianity has humbled me and empowered me at the same time. Works for me.

    That’s rather meritorious of you to follow in the footsteps of the Son on the way to be with the Father (Abba) who art in Heaven’.

    But you are overlooking one vital milestone along the way. Let’s see if you are prepared to become the ‘Simple’ Saint Donna of Assisi.

    You, along with Simple Simon, must first shed yourself of all’ earthy’ desires and materialistic trappings and without fail meet the necessary requirements contained in the following injunction:

    “Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?

    Why ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. But to answer your question–if you want to receive eternal life, keep the commandments.

    Which ones? the man asked. And Jesus replied: You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely.

    Honor your father and mother. Love your neighbor as yourself.

    I’ve obeyed all these commandments,” the young man replied. What else must I do?

    Jesus told him, If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.

    But when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.”

    But Pacha, Bushie was at PAINS to explain that, while penned by mammon, the book in question was NOT written by man.
    The question of your understanding it, is not even a consideration….and finally, there is no other book that comes even close to the bible. If you want some fun, do some research on the bible codes…..

    Both these can’t be right at the same time.

    The only thing about the bible that could be special is the hundreds of years this piece of propaganda has been imposed on your brassbowls.

    Any other book given such dominant marketing, positioning, will do just as well.

    We suppose the Koran is just as popular, if not more so.

    How are these positions mutually exclusive?
    Which one is not true?

    The very ‘battle’ between the Bible and the Koran reinforces Bushie’s point about the supernatural status of the Bible.

    Most Muslins read the koran in the original Arabic – which most do not understand….
    Most christians have multiple (average of four in the USA) bibles at home (apart from access on computers, iPads, smartphones etc) and yet do not know squat about it (many Americans think that Billy Graham gave the sermon on the mount)

    The bible is unstoppable – and its distribution has only been accelerated by competition from the Koran….. and YES – HARDLY ANYONE understands heads or tails what it says…

    not even GP,
    ..who is still struggling with the fact that Jesus spoke in parables – PRECISELY in order to ensure that those brass bowls listening DID NOT get the message…
    …or that the ‘Trinity’ is diametrically OPPOSITE to what the bible ACTUALLY says…

    But if you have any genuine questions – feel free to ask Bushie – who can ask a friend on your behalf….
