They said we worship carved images, they said it is a sin. They called it idol worship ( idolatry). They said our God has eyes but can’t see. Has ears but can hear. Has mouth but can’t talk. They told us to burn them and we did.

Finally they brought their own God. But sadly, the only thing that differentiated their God from ours is the color. Ours was black, theirs is white.

Ours came in different forms depending on our culture, tradition and environment. Some were iron (ogun), Thunder (Ifa/Amadioha) etc.

Theirs is a carved image of Mary, Jesus and crucifix.

Just like our, theirs could not speak, hear or see.

Just like ours, theirs represented the creator of heaven and earth. The Most high God.

Just like us, they also kneel and bow before those carved images to pray.

The question now is, Is kneeling and praying before the image of Mary, Jesus or the crucifix not the same idolatry they accused us of?

Before you say most christians now don’t pray before those white idols i mentioned. Remember all the original churches that brought christianity to Africa either knelt (kneels) before the image of Mary, Jesus or crucifix to pray. Also remember that anything that is reformed is adulterated because if “e no be original, e no fit be like original”.

Will it be wrong to conclude that the church lied to us just to impose their way of worship on us?

Before you start wasting insults and curses on me, please remove the religious fear from your head and use your God given brain to think about what i wrote.

Happy Sunday and God Bless you
