We Don’t Need Any Divine Saviors Or Holy Redeemers!

(ThyBlackMan.com) I don’t need any divine saviors or holy redeemers. I don’t need anybody trying to save my soul, which is the topic of tonight’s discussion.

On Sunday, I was watching a YouTube Channel called the Atheist Experience. When I saw it, the show was LIVE, and I called in to the show because the host was taking calls. But I called in too late. They had stopped taking calls at a certain time. My purpose for calling in to the program was that I wanted to make some comments about a previous caller’s position on whether the universe has an intelligent designer.

Of course, my answer is NO. The universe does not have an intelligent designer. In fact, the universe has always been here. When it comes to the universe itself, there is no beginning or ending.

I also wanted to speak with the host about my experiences as a former Christian and Hebrew Israelite. As many of you have already heard, I left Christianity in early 2019, and it was one of the best decisions I could’ve made for my life. I don’t regret it. I know my pastor is still praying for me. I know my sister is still praying for me. I come from a religious family who are predominantly Christian.

Sometimes, I still feel as though I’ve disappointed my pastor and other people. But I also know that many of my former church members and fellow-Christians don’t give a damn whether I left the church or Christianity.

I feel like I have disappointed them. Sometimes, I get this feeling that what if pastor sees my videos in which I’m speaking against Christianity, and she becomes disappointed about the things I said. But I really don’t care about the disappointment that I may cause compared to the years that I spent living in fear-based consciousness; living in fear that I’m going to hell when I die if I ever turned my back on Jesus or left the church or Christianity.

I’ve spent many years being taught that Christ is the way, the truth, and the life; and that no man comes unto the Father but by him. I’ve also spent many years living in fear of hell, which doesn’t pale in comparison to the disappointment I think I’ve caused them. Unless you’ve spent most of your life living in fear of going to hell for something you said or done to displease god; then you can’t possibly understand how that feels. And to this very day, I am still on speaking terms with the pastor.

What I went through with Christians in the church doesn’t even fall on the same level as the shit I recently experienced with a so-called god-fearing woman in the Hebrew Israelite tradition claiming to be polygynist when she really doesn’t want polygyny at all. The treacherous persons that exist in the Kemetic-Hebrew Israelite-pro-black, and Pan-Afrikan unconsciousness community are some of the worst characters I’ve ever dealt with. Many people in the pro-black unconsciousness community have come from violent homes and backgrounds where they’ve been abused by parents or neglected or abandoned, and nobody ever gave many of them unconditional love, which is why many of them are sociopaths.

No amount of religion or spirituality is going to fix that. All the prayer in the world won’t fix what happened to you in your adolescence. All the prayer in the world won’t bring back the fear that I felt for many years. And I’m talking about the fear of going to hell if I made a mistake or did something to displease god, or if I turned away from the church or Jesus.

I was brought up in Christianity, but I could easily have been brought up in the Nation of Islam or brought up in the Kemetic community. Some of the same teachings espoused in the Nation of Islam are also taught in Christianity. Some of the teachings espoused in Christianity has been carried over to the Kemetic community. The only difference is the gods and goddesses go by different names. Black slaves went from Christianity to the Hebrew Israelite doctrine in the late 1800s and then to the Nation of Islam in the 1900s. Then, from there, black people adopted the Kemetic religious system. But all of it was learned from white people who gave you your Westernized religion and spiritual system.

For everyone who is praying for me, or wishing me well, or wishing me contentment, or wishing me happiness; thank you for all your prayers and support. I will also say that your prayers would be better spent on tearing down the system of racism and white supremacy. All your prayers would be better spent on praying for the fall of white supremacy, and also the fall of black supremacy. Black supremacy is white supremacy. Your prayers would be better spent on healing the sick and those with fatal diseases.

All the prayers, all the love, all the wishing me wells are not going to make me see your gods from the bible and Qur’an and Torah in a different light, because no matter how much Christianity has played a pivotal role in shaping my reality, it has also played a negative role in keeping me in fear-based consciousness, which has been used against humanity in order to enslave humanity for thousands of years.

We’ve all been brainwashed by the system, and also by these governments using religion and spirituality to keep us living in constant fear of hell or in fear of the Boogey Man, and I am here to break that religious and spiritual chain out from around your mind. So, while you’re thinking you’re reconverting me, I’m actually brainwashing you back into reality. Because you need to come out of these religious systems in order to see the reality of your life and the reality of your condition. Most of y’all don’t have nothing. We’re struggling over here in this country. Many can’t retire off these jobs by the time you reach 50 years old, and your health is not great. You at work sick all the time; struggling to perform manual labor at work. Many of y’all work in these warehouses lifting heavy boxes, and you’re 50 years old, 60 and 64 years old. You live in an environment that is psychotic, and they want to defund the police, so that when you call 911, the police will be slow to respond. If they abolish certain police departments, and defund the police, it will be hard for you to get help when calling 911. As a result, the police will take longer to respond to you, and this will put more black women and children in greater danger in their own neighborhoods.

I have broken the chains of religious mind control programming from around my mind, and I see the world and the people living in it outside the realm of organized religion. There was a time when I only saw the world within the pages of the bible. Now, I see the world outside the pages of the bible. So, you can’t poison me with your Christianity anymore. You can’t poison me with your Judaism. You can’t poison me with your Hebrew Israelite doctrines. I am not going to be a slave to your biblical god called Yahweh or your New Testament character called Jesus or Yeshua or Yesha. I am not going to be your slave in your Pro-Black Consciousness Church. Your Jesus never existed historically, and it is my duty to tell you that. Pastor is praying hard for me, and some other people are also praying for me. But I won’t change my mind about what I really think about your gods and goddesses as monsters and who hate humanity.

The Jezebel in the black consciousness church thought she could influence and manipulate me into worshiping her fake malevolent deity called Yahawah (which is really Yahweh, also called Jehovah), and I have already rejected all your fake gods and goddesses from the ancient world, from your ancient religions and spiritual systems, from the ancient Babylonian religious systems, from the ancient Kemetic religious systems. I’m not worshiping your gods and goddesses. I have no use for THEM. I am not going to bow down to them nor serve them. I AM NOT GOING TO BE THEIR SLAVE. I DON’T NEED THEM TO SAVE ME EITHER. I don’t need any divine saviors or redeemers. I won’t be a slave on the pro-black consciousness plantation.

And this is why a lot of you that run in those pro-black consciousness circles don’t like Sista Noble and Angelsnupnup7, because we’ve rejected your pro-black consciousness teachings, and we’re not going to let you enslave us in your pro-black consciousness church. We’re not gonna worship your gods and goddesses, and you cannot bully us into worshiping your gods and goddesses. I’m not gonna worship Yahweh or Yahawah or Jehovah. Neither will I worship Yahawashi.

But keep on praying for me. You are more than welcome to do so. But in good conscience, I cannot worship a malevolent entity that doesn’t care for humanity, and even your own bible says that this god from the Old Testament brought a flood upon the world and destroyed all but Noah, his wife, his sons, and their wives. In the bible, this deity called Yahweh has done more to harm humans than the biblical Satan. In fact, you won’t read too many stories in the Old Testament about Satan killing innocent women and children more than Yahweh.

AGAIN, I DON’T NEED ANY SAVIORS WHETHER SUPERNATURAL OR HUMAN. I DON’T NEED YOU TO SAVE ME OR SAVE MY SOUL.

    I don’t understand why people see this kind of view as atheism. All religions suggest that you take your precautions or do your best in any situation and then trust God for assistance.

    It is entirely selfish to expect everything from God and do nothing to improve your situation. It doesn’t make you a non-believer or atheist to take the necessary steps to avoid a terrible outcome. After you do all these, you can still pray.

    I too believe that we make our own miracles or save ourselves but we can still believe in a higher power. Religion doesn’t have to be any more than what it is, a safe place for your mind and heart. Thanks for sharing the article, I enjoyed reading it.

    Alberta, I accidently hit “Submit” before I got to my point. I wrote a peice in a series called “A Theology for the 21st Century.” One post is called “Faith is Not Believing the Unbelievable.” I’ll paste it in here to give you support and comfort and give you a little taste of where some other rational people “land” in terms of a religious world views. If you like it, I can send more. Here goes:

    “Faith should not be about believing the unbelievable. As a man of science, I don’t literally literally believe in most of the miracle stories throughout the Bible. I have good company. Thomas Jefferson worked on a version of the New Testament where he removed all of the miracle stories to leave only the moral teachings.

    I don’t believe in the literal resurrection of Jesus; but I accept that it’s a story (myth) with huge meaning. All meaning is contained in the symbolic (myths). Jesus’s followers had just suffered the most humiliating and heart-breaking defeat conceivable. For it to happen to the man in whom his followers could see the divine-itself revealed is beyond horrible. His followers could see that Jesus and his teachings revealed the “the beyond within our midst”,“ultimate ground of our being”, “our ultimate reality” and THE MEANING OF LIFE ITSELF!

    For his followers to see such a humiliating end at the hands of the ham-handed, amoral political authorities is absolutely intolerable. That could not stand!! So, over time his followers, the early Jesus movement and early Church had to protect and preserve his legacy. The resurrection stories did this and became biblical canon. They COULD NOT ALLOW his devastating and unjust crucifixion to end his story! This is the exact point where life, depth and meaning is captured by myth. It’s really love. So yeah, I ‘believe’ that Jesus is fully God and fully human.

    I recently was at the gym and I noticed one of the young gym instructors working with a disabled man. I was close enough to see how attentive, empathetic and supportive this young guy was, like he was bending over backwards to “will the good” (agape) for his client. As I was watching, I could see empathy, goodwill and even beauty. I understood that I was witnessing something close to the meaning of life-itself; maybe even the nature of God working in the world. The young instructor was responding to a need so beautifully and his client needed help. I had to move over to a quiet corner of the gym so I could let flow a few tears. They were tears of joy.

    Thanks to my self-education and experience, I was able and ready to see the depths of that moment; something extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary. Sometimes movies or books bring me similarly to the depths of meaning of life itself.

    Might this be similar to what Jesus’s followers saw? If so, is it really that different to what the followers of Buddha might have seen?

    So God is in plain sight if you know where to look; in acts of kindness, good will and desire for justice for others who we meet—the very definition of the New Testament’s ‘apape’ love. Miracles are not where boulders are moved or where waters are parted but where minds are changed and hearts moved by deep understanding and personal interactions. Think of the reconciliation revealed by the parable of the prodigal son. God is gently and persuasively pulling all of us toward the “good” by gently and persuasively tugging at our hearts and minds over eons of time. (I’m very influenced and attracted to Process Theology.)

    It’s clear to even conservative scholars that the Christmas stories of Jesus’ birth were added later by the early Church to complete a “picture.” (This happens a lot in the New Testament. There are also many “sayings” of Jesus that were most likely “written-in” by the early Church.) There’s no historical evidence of any miraculous events occurring anywhere near the time when Jesus was born. In fact, we don’t even know when Jesus was born! But isn’t Christmastime really the most wonderful time of the year? Aren’t billions of people’s lives enriched immensely by these wonderful stories (myths)?? Still convinced that myths don’t have meaning??

    It’s important to teach these kinds of things or smart young people will continue to be “turned-off” to Christianity because of a “requirement” to believe the unbelievable.”

    I’m probably screwing-up by sending this. But you’re not alone in your feelings and skepticism!! I’m with you. There’s a few of us who have revised our views to something satisfactory and reflect reality. All the best!,Doug

    Alberta, Congratulations on your decision. It’s a real pity when religion ends up being a negative force in the (your) world. Rejecting what “doesn’t work” is the first step. I have sympathy for your point of view. I’m lucky. I wasn’t brought up in a religious household. I didn’t have anything rammed down my throat. I became a passionate reader of Theology and Religion in college. I had a campus minister who got his Doctorate of Divinty at Harvard (at the same time as when MLK Jr. was at Harvard!!) I didn’t have to “unlearn” anything. The campus minister had a magnificent library with only the best scholarship in the world. I borrowed and read many of those books to forge my own “world view” over the next 2 to 3 years. And I really did. My Chemical Engineering courses took somewhat of backseat to my new passion! Funny, huh??

    But I’d suggest that, over time, it’s possible to find meaning with other religious views. I’ve written a bit about this subject.

    Atheist, you can no more exercise the freedom of mind, and body enough to reject the salvation of God than you can your will to breathe, or to drink water, or to eat food.You were redeemed by virtue of the blood of Jesus Christ which was shed on the cross for you. This means that Jesus Christ, the son of God,died on the cross for you thereby buying you back from the destruction of sin.No matter how far you may wander from your creator, you can always return home.Pray to God ( i.e. ask God to take away all confusion, and anger in your mind ), and God will mercifully guide you back home.
