In i school were i'm working there was a conversation between teachers I didn't want to get involved but i was followed it. one of them said we afrikans we did knew God before the comming of our opposers(whites) and what they are teaching is almost the same how it was just names and numbers are changed.
This week i was reading a work of great french socilogist, Emile.., who was a jew, about religion. He said religion is the thinking relevant to that specific society or person...
In todays world there are Religions, I wonder if there is spirituality there, which want to dominate the world and curse others, I'm still question who's authority is allowing them to do this! I personally i have meet with these things, people who try to critisize my thinking of divinity and plant there's on me.
Todays world will be very much better for everyone if we do respect the believes of others. Most of the conflicts will not be here. In Tanzania we have a great conflict on pipeline between Muslims and Xtians why?. Muslims are offended by christians for claiming that Jesus Christ is God although they are not forced to believe in this.
Now What is the norm to judge that this religion is better than that one/others? Can't I-Rasta believe in Jah at the same time Others believe in Allah or white washed Jesus in peace and respect?
All religions preachs of peace, but others think they can fear others by massacring in millions as what is happening in sudan now, afghanistan, Serbia, yugoslavia, Sept.11, bali. without forgeting the slave ships and their drivers.
Selasie always taught us to strive for peace as jesus didand Muhamad also, can mankind put this in practise. Yes we can if we go back to our holy books not thinking of man who are not perfect.
Jah guides us.
