February 4, 2018, The U.S.A and its allies are making sure the African are praying a God that they themselves don’t belief. Yet they wanted to keep you busy so that they destroyed your offspring.
Although, you will finds me very strange in my letter, you have every right to do so because what I am about to tell you is a strange felling indeed. it is strange that the English man who brought us his religion and his God is now no longer belief in that God that he brought here in Africa. The white man who brought Christianity taught us that “his God is a one God, powerful God and a God of love who does not hate, but love people, but if you do not follow his way, he will burn you, smashing and destroyed you in a burning fire and no one can save you even your own relative when you died and in a place called “Hell”.
Dear Africa, one philosopher once said, “The fool’s life is empty of gratitude and full of fears; its course lies wholly toward the future.” “It is folly for a man to pray to the gods for that which he has the power to obtain by himself.”
Dear Africa, while studying philosophy, I find myself studying a case study called “Why I am not a Christian” by a British lecturer name Bernard Russell (1972-1970), at the Battersea Town Hall on Sunday March 6, 1927. One of the fascinated paragraph that I will never forgot read in part, “I think you must have at the very lowest the belief that Christ was, if not divine, at least the best and wisest of men. If you are not going to believe that much about Christ, I do not think you have any right to call yourself a Christian. Of course there is another sense which you find in Whitaker’s Almanack and in geography books, where the population of the world is said to be divided into Christians, Mohammedans, Buddhists, fetish worshippers, and so on; and in that sense we are all Christians. The geography books count us all in, but that is a purely geographical sense, which I suppose we can ignore. Therefore I take it that when I tell you why I am not a Christian I have to tell you two different things; first, why I do not believe in God and in immortality; and, secondly, why I do not think that Christ was the best and wisest of men, although I grant Him a very high degree of moral goodness” he said
Dear Africa, my name is Gatluke Chuol Reat, I came to Canada about 14 years ago. Like many Africans brothers and sisters who will never stop thinking about this beautiful land call, Africa. Although, you have built a big Churches and Mosques in the name of God and Allah, the suffering of our brothers and sisters become the product of what we call West and the Middle East. Is God is dead? Or is it true that what they called God has never existed in first place? One of the Western philosophers name Friedrich Nietzsche to whom I admired argued that, “God is Dead”, he said. Christian religion’s “God is Dead” and I also think that the Muhammad God has never existed in first place. Although this message will only address the Christian God, it is also my hope that you will be thinking about Allah and what you have learned through Islam.
Dear Africa, Brothers and Sisters of Africa, our continent have suffered enough, although the Christian God says “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Mathew 5:44) that you may be sons of your Father in heaven, that he causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous”. to save you. however, if this is what God wants Africa to be, why does Christian God created Africa in first place? Did Christian God created Africa as a place for forgiveness? That you, the Africans people have to be enslave, killed, brought disease to killed you and your offspring through diseases and war to whom they have created. Yet, they want you to believe that all you have to do is to pray because if you did not pray and take revenge, you will have no place in Heaven.
Dear Africa, one more thing that you need to know is that, when Friedrich Nietzsche, a German philosopher in 1800s declared the death of Christian’s God, he does so by disputed the claims of the modern science and religion that they revealed anything about truth about the world and us, the human being including you, the African people. He does so, by saying that there is no fact about the claims about the religion. All we have now in our hands about religion are only interpreter. But for you brothers and sisters of Africa, in the last four hundred years, you have been suffering in the hands of Christian God, in the hand of Christianity and their governments in their countries such as that of United Kingdom of England, the France, the Americas and in the hand of the Arab world. The English and French speaking world enslaved the entire Africa in the name of “missionaries”, civilization and Christianity. What is the result? The continuation of the suffering of the people of Africa, the hardship and inhumane treatment of those who are from Africans descents such as the killings of African American by police in America or the systematic death in the sea in coast of Libya, though the Africa complies with all requirements demanded by Christianity. these systematic mistreatment of African people is not and will never stop
The question is, why these religions and the people who brought them to Africa are the sources of the destruction of the land and the people of Africa? We were told that Africans gods are of evil, we were told that Africans gods are magicians sort, we were told that Africans gods have no hope for Heaven and unless you, the African people bend down to European God, so you will be save in Heaven. The question is, Are we, the African people are born to suffer on Earth? Why do they tell us where does that says from the books of their God or gods, the bible? Would it not be true so that the mission to civilize Africa was only a mission to only bring diseases, endless wars, losses of resources and the continuation of the suffering of offspring of Africa? Think about it, think about Nietzsche’s slave and master moralities, although my Africans brothers and sisters would like not to thinks about the meaning of what is being said, who said it and for what result and why it is said that way, however, the age of reason would say that, it is every human success to understand these things.
I want to leave you with this, “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? translate where does evil come from?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
Think about Christianity and what it does and doing in Africa
I want to leave you with Russell’s conclusion, he says that
WHAT WE MUST DO
We want to stand upon our own feet and look fair and square at the world—its good facts, its bad facts, its beauties, and its ugliness; see the world as it is, and be not afraid of it. Conquer the world by intelligence, and not merely by being slavishly subdued by the terror that comes from it. The whole conception of God is a conception derived from the ancient Oriental despotisms. It is a conception quite unworthy of free men. When you hear people in church debasing themselves and saying that they are miserable sinners, and all the rest of it, it seems contemptible and not worthy of self-respecting human beings. We ought to stand up and look the world frankly in the face. We ought to make the best we can of the world, and if it is not so good as we wish, after all it will still be better than what these others have made of it in all these ages. A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past, or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men. It needs a fearless outlook and a free intelligence. It needs hope for the future, not looking back all the time towards a past that is dead, which we trust will be far surpassed by the future that our intelligence can create.
I Thank you
