Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Why I Hate Black History Month Part II

Posted by Job on February 15, 2007

Thought I was exaggerating in my last post about how the civil rights movement was used to turn blacks from God? Well, let me tell you about what goes on at these “black history month events” that go on at many companies, schools, and CHURCHES across America: witchcraft. That’s right. They invite African practictioners of false religions (and their American emulators) to perform religious ceremonies. Consider not so much the fact that in many of these same places CHRISTIAN ceremonies are not allowed, and instead recognize this fact: BLACK HISTORY IS BEING USED AS AN EXCUSE TO PROMOTE AND LEGITIMIZE THE WORSHIP OF RELIGIONS THAT WILL FILL YOU TO THE BRIM WITH DEMONS AND TAKE YOU TO HELL! And you know that white people just can’t refuse to go to these things or refuse to host them; that would be “racist.” And black people can’t do the same; that would be “selling out.” Even if you protest on the grounds of Christianity (and incidentally “Christian supremacy” is a phrase gaining a lot of popularity and will be mainstream soon) , you will be told that the appropriate thing to do is to suffer it just this once because of black history month. I wonder how many evil spirits have entered into people, especially children, due to their having watched a witch come in and perform her rites and cast spells (usually in another language that the Christians watching cannot understand, and often that the black American Christian emulator performing the rites and spells do not understand) at their school, workplace, or AT THEIR CHURCH!

At my job specifically, they are bringing in a “Yoruba priestess” to perform on an African drum. They claim that hearing her perform the drum may even “inspire you to move to your own healing dance.” Now you have seen on National Geographic and on some very politically incorrect movies from back in the day Africans and other tribal people playing drums, dancing, and chanting (remember, Christians are not supposed to be doing “vain repetitions”); they don’t do those things because they are fun ways to pass the time and express themselves, THAT IS PART OF THEIR RELIGION. And all religions are about interacting with spirits, so of course playing this music, chanting, and dancing to it was designed to bring power to and conjure up demons! Which is exactly what this priestess, who is dedicated to promoting her religion and demon “gods”, will be doing. Of course, if her demon “gods” were to enter into anyone and everyone who watches her performance and cause all sorts of havoc, she would be well pleased with that outcome just as a true Christian would be pleased if a person accepted Christ and received the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and began to manifest the gift of tongues as a result of our being asked to speak or perform anywhere. And get this: the person responsible for organizing this event and bringing this witch there for people to give audience to and pay respects to this witch and be filled with demons IS A CHRISTIAN. A REGULAR CHURCHGOER.

And that should not surprise you. Why? Because thanks to MULTICULTURALISM, DIVERSITY, TOLERANCE (for everything except Christianity of course), POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, and IDENTITY POLITICS, this mess is actually regularly practiced in churches, often under the guise of “African dance”, presumably promoting “blackness” and “black heritage” to make black Christians feel included and more comfortable. It is a total crock. If honoring or being similar to blacks is the goal, WHY NOT EMULATE THE WORSHIP OF THE ONE TRUE GOD THAT AFRICANS HAVE BEEN PERFORMING SINCE THE MEETING BETWEEN PHILIP AND THE ETHIOPIAN IN ACTS? But that is not the real goal, because their intent is not to honor God but to honor their “blackness”, which is self – worshipping idolatry, as well as the worship of an image and an idea, concept, or philosophy. So, it is satanic from the start, based on feelings of rejection and bitterness (remember the “root of bitterness” demon mentioned in the Bible). Because of that, out of all of these very many church folk, the idea to emulate the very many black Christians in Africa never occurs. Instead, they AS A RULE go and emulate the pagans and dance with the demons. An exception that I do like: the GRAMMY NOMINATED Kurt Carr “One Church” album (and live concert DVD). Another: Paul Simon’s Graceland album (remember Paul Simon is a LIBERAL SECULAR ARTIST; yet he manages to outdo many black Christians who claim to be “so in love with their roots”, and oh yeah Simon actually, er, has been to Africa). But those are exceptions that just prove the rule of how demonic motivations just make for demonic results.

You doubt? You think that I am making a mountain out of a molehill? Well consider this article from the “The King Is Coming” ministry. It speaks of Baal worship in Old Testament Israel. Part of the Baal worship included LEWD DANCING. It also speaks of how by virtue of introducing this idol worship into the congregation, people forgot that they were worshipping Baal and thought that they were worshipping YHVH Elohim, and soon it was impossible to tell the idol worshippers from everyone else! Watch the “urban congregations” on TBN or the Word Network, see the “black history” or “African celebration” programs (or often just regular services), and see the idolatry of Israel replicated live and in, er, living color. (As stated in the first post, I am black and very happy that God made me so in order for me to fulfill His Purpose.)

Black history month had legitimate origins (especially since it was originally, er, only a week). Now, the civil rights movement, which was a communist subversive plot from the start, did not, and neither did the multiculturalism/identity politics movement, all of which were by definition and in many cases by design anti – Christian. The sad part is that many sincere, well – meaning black (and white) Christians have allowed such things to be used to introduce idolatry in our churches and our nation. The motivation has been the real hurt and pain in blacks who have been discriminated against, marginalized, and suffered real harm by a racist white society, and whites who feel true guilt and shame over the fact that such things ought not to be. But rather than take those feelings to GOD, follow the BIBLE, and address these issues GOD’S WAY, we have followed after the world and thereby have become polluted by it. We really do need to acknowledge that Jesus Christ died on the cross to take away the sins of the racist and the resentment that comes from being mistreated by racists, and start telling the truth to everyone, starting with ourselves: racism is inevitable because racism is hate, and in a world that is being ruled by the usurper Satan and in the hearts of men who do not truly love Jesus Christ, hate will always be present. So, we need to take our racism and our anger over being mistreated by racists to the cross for it to be killed and buried, and we need the Blood of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua HaMashiach to take away our sin, cast out our demons, and redeem us, to make us new creatures. Only by that way can we feel valued. Only that way can we see why God created races, and each race’s role in God’s Plan, and our role within God’s Plan no matter our race. Only that way can we attain Galatians 3:28 and Colossians 3:11 (the whole “there is neither Jew nor Greek, bond nor free, male or female”) within ourselves. As a matter of fact, before that, we will not even WANT Galatians 3:28 and Colossians 3:11. We will WANT to continue to nurse our hates, fears, and grievances, and allow that to drive us to idolatry. Why? Because that is what the demons that are driving all this want. Well in the Name of Jesus Christ, I bind and rebuke and cast out those demons from all who read this and are willing to be changed! But it all starts with you becoming truly saved and a new creature through Christ. Become that tonight. Admit that you need change, that you need help. That you are a racist, and that makes you a sinner, and that only God can cure you, make you right, make you happy, and remove all of your angers and fears. Follow The Three Step Salvation Plan, and it will be yours!

  1. I just read your comments on the Angry Black Woman’s blog, her response and your rebuttal. Are you in ministry? Because you sir, are amazing. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! for being strong and straight-forward without using foul language, being crass, or personally attacking the ABW. That, sir, is the heart of what TRUE dialogue is. As a Christian, it really encourages me to read your references and discussion of the early church in Acts, and to know that there are others in the world that are working toward (and praying for) God’s plan of a truly unified Body in Christ.

    God Bless you!
    -Miss Knotty

  2. Miss Knotty: Thank you for your most kind comments and your encouraging words. I am not an ordained minister, just someone who along with my wife studies the Word and tries to live it! I have the conviction that organized religion in its current state actually hinders people from reading, understanding, and living the Word. That is based on my own experience with both nondenominational and denominational churches; I pray that yours is different. But there is a growing “home church” movement as well as a growing bunch of gentile Christians going around emulating Messianic Jews, so obviously there are a lot of people who have gone through what me and my family have, and God is dealing with us about it. Thank you and in the Name of Jesus Christ be blessed and stay faithful and true! Pray without ceasing, and read your Bible daily!

    I’m not going to pretend that I read your post. I’m just going to say that HATE is a very strong word, especially for a christian. Hating an abstract concept such as the celebration of an oppressed peoples’ survival and continued struggle for human dignity because of some isolated events is hardly thorough reasoning.

  4. AuLThaT:

    Had you read my post, you would know that I am black.

  5. AuLThaT said

    What does your being black have to do with your “HATE” of an abstract concept?

  6. AuLThaT:

    First off, it is perfectly acceptable for Christians to hate what God hates. As a matter of fact, it is a requirement. SIN, for instance, is an abstract concept. All Christians are supposed to hate all manner and form of sin, OK?

    Second, if you will read my posts, you will understand WHY I hate Black History Month. I will give you a summary: it reminds me of how all the progress that blacks were making in this country after the end of slavery stopped right about the time of the civil rights movement, and how starting around that time educational performance, family and community stability, etc. began to plummet and stuff like venereal disease and drug/criminal behavior began to skyrocket. Where I should be inspired by the example of those who paved the way for me, instead I find myself trying to see exactly where we got off track, and it is depressing. I used to parrot the old right wing Republican conservative mantra of blaming it all on welfare and social liberalism, and before that (I was a college wannabe “radical” after all) I blamed government conspiracies, “the man keeping us down”, and all of that stuff. So no, I am not someone who harbors some sort of hateful grudge of black people and begrudges their accomplishments. Quite the contrary, I am despairing over our lack of accomplishments, and IMHO I feat that we individually (in many cases) and collectively (a generalization that does not apply to all individuals within the group) are not fulfilling the purpose that God put us in this nation for.

    Dangerous territory when you presume that the way a situation appears to you is the way that it appears to God. You say that you’ve gone through opposing phases in your own life. You have no way of knowing if the one you’re in now will be the same ten years from now. God doesn’t go through phases… He is. Your two-part post about why you hate Black History Month is nothing more than your own personal take on an aspect of the human condition. On one hand it seems like you’re asking for divine healing, yet at the same time your positions align you more closely with the demonic destroyers. Destroyers who would have you believe that the old African religions are less godly than the European customs of worship. Destroyers who would have you believe that pride is prejudice.
    One of the most interesting books in the Bible to me is the book of Job. When you say you despair over “our lack of accomplishments” remember that we could be at the beginning, in the middle of, or near the end of a test. we don’t know because God doesn’t use a quartz-powered watch to tell time. Job didn’t know the reason for his affliction, but the fact that he was afflicted was painfully obvious. His unwaivering faith was later rewarded because through all the pain he never forgot who God is.
    I type all of this to say… If you hate Black History Month because of how some people choose to observe it, observe it differently, or not at all. Why try to destroy something that so many people fought and died for just so that it could exist.

    …in the shortest month of the year no less.

  8. “Destroyers who would have you believe that the old African religions are less godly than the European customs of worship.” Ummm … there is CHRISTIANTY and EVERYTHING ELSE. Even a great many forms of Christianity being practiced today are highly problematic. I choose to believe the Bible fully and literally, nothing added, nothing taken away, which of course is no less than what the Bible itself demands. Have you seen Revelation 22:19-20?
    “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” What about Galatians 1:8 – 9? “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” Now if you are one of those who believes and claims that the Bible is not totally true and the final authority and should not be adhered to completely, or that salvation is accomplished through any other than Jesus Christ, then according to those words the destroyer is active in you.

    Now keep in mind: I never said that Black History Month was evil or a sin. I am not trying to stop others from celebrating black history month. I was just pointing out why the celebration is painful to me! It is very painful to me to consider the condition of black people, my people. We really cannot be compared with Job. Why? Because Job was a righteous, perfect, and upright man. His only flaw was being self – righteous and judging God out of it. But in terms of the black community, if 70% of babies are being born out of wedlock, and it would be even higher if abortion, homosexuality, and imprisonment wasn’t skyrocketing in our communities, you know what that is called? FORNICATION. FORNICATION IS A SIN! Now God will forgive fornicators just as He forgave my even worse sins (there is the fact that all sins are equal in the sight of God save blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, but you know what I mean). But unless you got a different theory going on, my opinion is that the dire conditions of blacks in this nation is due to our own sinful rebellious hearts, and all Black History Month does to me is remind me of it.

  9. Why Black History Month Does Not Belong in the Church

    I have found the one time when the name of Jesus is said the least during a church service. It is when churches choose to devote time to things not giving glory to God, but to themselves. I have witnessed that when churches devote time to “Bla…

  10. Independent Conservative:

    Tried to reply on your site, but it would not let me. But thank you for your fine comments. When I was a kid growing up in a small town, the black history month stuff in schools wasn’t that bad; we just learned about some great black Americans and their contributions, and yes most of them were great Christians too. But stuff just started to get more and more subversive, and then they started doing it in the church. First it was just “African ballet”, then it was the African drums, but then it went to that “black fraternity/sorority step shows”, and after that got introduced the doors came wide open. It just seems that whenever you abandon the principle that “God is all we need”, then you quickly turn down a dark path, you start mixing darkness with light.

  11. Brother I am glad you wrote this post. At my church this past Sunday, the “Black History” segment was longer than the actual sermon. I was so ticked that I was preparing to write my post and saw yours. It was good to see someone else is speaking out against this angle to prop Satan up in the church.

    Sorry you had trouble getting access to comment on my blog. Please e-mail me with the account name you tried to sign up with and I’ll see if I can help.

    you are such a christian and good guy? right? is this really what you, the author of this believe hating black history month? no, because christians don’t hate black people or any other race of people. you vividly understand understand that black history and black history month have no relation to, or relevance to religion, but you are clearly persuading a hate-lie, ignoramus, to the readers and real christians to deter them, but you cannot deter anyone with your close-minded opinion from their beliefs

  13. intellectual:

    “you are such a christian and good guy? right?” Actually about such a thing I maintain no pretensions whatsoever. “Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” How about you? Are you good? If so, then how so?

    “is this really what you, the author of this believe hating black history month? no, because christians don’t hate black people or any other race of people.” Regrettably many Christians do hate black people and members of other races, because hating people is sin, and everyone sins, including me. Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” That verse includes me. I have sinned plenty of times. That is why I need Yeshua HaMashiach – you are likely more familiar with his transliterated name Jesus Christ – to save me from my sins. What about you? Have you sinned? If so, who will save you from yours?

    “you vividly understand understand that black history and black history month have no relation to, or relevance to religion” This weblog has nothing to do whatsoever with religion. It has everything to do with God, however, and EVERYTHING has something to do with God because EVERYTHING will be judged by God. EVERYTHING that God rejects will be destroyed, and EVERYTHING that God approves of will be spared. Will God approve of you?

    “but you are clearly persuading a hate-lie, ignoramus, to the readers and real christians to deter them, but you cannot deter anyone with your close-minded opinion from their beliefs” If what I am saying is so obviously untrue, then why not provide an example of how? Or tell me one thing that I have said that is untrue? As lying is a sin, that is certainly something that I do not want to be found guilty of, so if my falsehoods are made known to me, then I will gladly admit the error, apologize, and correct it. Or is it that you cannot find any actual lies and errors on my post, and are therefore resorting to personal attacks and accusations? If that is so, then you are engaging in precisely what you accuse me of.

    Now to close, I must say that you clearly did not read any of my posts regarding black history month with care and/or did not take time to view the other posts in the series, because if you had, you would have noticed that I, the writer of these posts, am very much black. I grew up in a mostly black town, attended mostly black public schools and then went on to a 90% black university, worshipped exclusively at black churches, am married to a black woman, and live in a 90% black neighborhood in suburban Atlanta, which is considered the black capital of America. I almost certainly know more about black people than you do. What is more important is that I DEFINITELY have a much more legitimate concern for black people than do you. Why? Because where you care more about what happens to black people in this life, which is temporary, I am concerned far more with what happens to “my people” (and everyone else for that matter) in the next life, which will last forever. And yes, I do extend that concern to you. I could care less what race you are, I just want to know what will happen to you when you die. Do you know what will happen to you when you die? Are you certain of it? And what makes you so certain? I eagerly anticipate your response, and whether you choose to respond or not I say to you thank you, and may God bless and keep you and save you from your sins.

    When I read your post, I felt CONFUSION! Have you ever watched Sankofa? The African ancestors carved the Sankofa symbol into their wood caskets as a symbol for the future generations to “go fetch it”. The proverb reads that “In order to move forward one must understand their past.” Clearly, you are lacking any information about Ancient Africa and its teachings prior to Christian faith. White Christians who spread the word of God by raping, killing, and stealing from others in the world in order to have a material gain. MONEY, CONTROL! That is not a good example of the LOVE God gives us. Maybe it is too painful for you to accept this part of your ancestry in its truth. Their is love and greatness in the strength of the traditions your ancestors possessed. We could learn not become so greedy and be only takers of the earth from our past. We did make a mistake in trusting the ways of another culture, when God blessed the home African people with everything healing. These are things which we took for granted!!!

    What about the witchcraft in Christian faith and American life. The days of week are named after pagan roman GODS and so are the months. The ridiculous holidays?

    I pray your ancestors will reach down and touch you.

    Peace
