But do you folks know that there was once a period in time, Jesus’ time for instance, where race wasn’t even recorded.
That’s why reading the bible you don’t read anything like: he was black or brown or white or any reference to color.
All this nonsense was started by 17th and 18th century racists from Europe who wanted to justify their crimes against black and brown people.
The White Greeks didn't rarely even say Egyptians were brown or dark, the subject wants even broached.
This color thing is a new invention of that sick creature who always creates evil---MAN
""Those who are too black are cowards, like for instance, the Egyptians and Ethiopians.
"Why are the Ethiopians and Egyptians bandy legged? Is it because of that the body of itself creates, because of
disturbance by heat, like loss of wood when they become dry? The condition of their hair supports this theory; for it is curlier than that of other nations
...the men of Egypt are mostly brown or black with a skinny desiccated look.
For the people of Colchis are evidently Egyptian, and this I perceived for myself before I heard it from others. So when I had come to consider the matter I asked them both; and the Colchians had remembrance of the Egyptians more than the Egyptians of the Colchians; but the Egyptians said they believed that the Colchians were a portion of the army of Sesostris. That this was so I conjectured myself not only because they are dark-skinned and have curly hair (this of itself amounts to nothing, for there are other races which are so.edit on 18-12-2015 by Spider879 because: (no reason given)
And nobody thought anything about it. Why now? Why are we being taught to hate our differences NOW?
Are we doing this to ourselves?

a reply to: Raggedyman The Christianity that I follow looks at the entire bible as God's word breathed into the prophets and those who wrote the bible. The new testament wouldn't make sense without the old testament especially with all the Old Testament passages that build up to the arrival of Jesus in the New Testament.
I am baffled by any Christian that thinks the ten Commandments shouldn't at least try to be followed.

Well at least they could have made it Aborigine with kinky blond hair..geez... it is Australia. Oh BTW we are talking about a town of 14,000 so we might be having this heavy debate over what 12 people there who think he should be white. Lol
FYI, this story is from Melbourne, a city of over 4.4 million, and very multicultural to boot.

a reply to: Raggedyman I'm baffled by Christians not taking in the bible as a whole and complete book about God's teachings. I believe the New Testament completes the Old testament and that in order to learn from the second book one has to study the first. Some of the best sermons I've ever heard are from preachers that take both books into consideration to fully understand Christ wanting us to love God above all else and to love one another.
The preacher I listen to serves a Christian church that does not have imagery that one would find in say a Catholic church because we don't need the what I think is a graven image of someone in heaven(second commandment)
Wouldn't loving God above all else mean taking into account all of the words breathed into man and or prophet?
So enough with "Black Baby Jesus"....it's stupid and erroneous.
