Friends I met this holiday 😇
So many times
Have i heard
That Christianity is Slavery
It's Colonial bondage
And should be thrown out
Advocates have called on Africa
Not to let the Colonialists
Rule through the Bible.
They have said
Go back to your roots
Africa.
Amusingly
This mostly
Comes from Whites
They have been fed
The lies
And now they wish
To pass them on.
But still
I feel the need
To defend my faith
Missionaries did
Get it to Africa
Were they Jews
No they were Gentiles
Everyone
That lays claim to
The Faith of Abraham
Even Abraham himself
Has had to abandon
Wisdom from ancestors
And family tradition
And even culture
Abraham left all things
All his household gods
Won't he testify
Against us
If we don't leave ours too
The Almighty God has Spoken
His Chosen Ones
Are preparing to
Be thrown out
Afterall Our King
Was slain outside the City
By Culture and tradition
So why should they be
Ultimates to us
We are indeed asked
Isn't He greater?

Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; - Philippians 3: 8- 9. ( NKJV)
