Colonel?

gee didn't people in the middle east walk barefooted or if lucky had sandals? did they not walk in the hot sand with no cover over their feet from the sun?

frankly man you are pulling at straws here. I know why but don't feel you have to do it.

the returned Christ may well be a black man but that is between you and I.

Who cares whether Jesus was white, black, or brown? Jesus is any hue you want him to be. Anyways, we all know he was green.

Now, you're getting really ridiculous. What I quoted to you about was from Revelations. I really don't think He's doing a walkabout in the desert NOW.

Furthermore, people are walking around in the Middle East now barefoot and with sandals. DO any of them have the color of polished brass to you or that "olive complexion" that you love to throw about.

That is all nice but that does not reflect reality as it may have been.

Morality and reality are not the same thing. Many people here keep confusing these two issues.

The problem is that you're confusing your fantasy with fact and reality. That's all.

Colonel,

this is annother one of your pet issues where you are really trying to convince yourself more than anyone else.

Christ could be black but the likelihood of it to my mind is not that high. He could have been an indian too, is that so far fetched?

keep digging you may find something but frankly if Christ becomes black it will more likely happen in the second coming IMHO.

I don't have to "convince" myself. I already know. I am trying to get you and the rest of the brainwashed to see the truth and the fact that it does matter. You refuse to accept b/c it doesn't fit with your flawed paradigm of the world. Just as th eprophet Isaiah siad:

10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.

11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:.....

24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

In addition...

2 Thessalonians 2
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe A LIE.


And this is why you will not accept my words as true.

I don't follw the catholic Church because they have lied about the identity of Christ, worship objects as idols, create other gods to worship "the Virgin Mary, etc.," are KNOWN child molesters and homosexuals.

I don't follow this b/c it flies in the face of the Word of God.

Rev 1
14 His HEAD and his hairs were white LIKE wool, AS white AS snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.


Now, you ignore the portion in this verse that says his head was white,
and you focus on the portion that says wool. wool is used as a color comparison.

your other point is that his feet are like brass. well the last time i checked, brass was a yellowish goldish color.
check the dictionary for brass.

Every thing that occured in the bible was in ARABIA not in AFRICA (egypt is also an arab country)

As the founders of the earliest civilisations, Arabs are their own race and are not decendants of Africans or Indians

Holy S***! Colonel is still talking about this! Of course I've been brainwashed and see Jesus as looking more like Jerry Seinfeld with a beard and tan, then Jimmy Walker aka "Kid Dyn-omite". But I think getting hung up on the melatonin is going to lead to a long road for you Colonel.

I follow the words of Buddha, Christ, Confucious, Krishnamurti, Marcus Aurelius, and anyone that has something deep to say. I wish the black community had an "icon" that was revered throughout the world (hopefully we will..."we" as in humanity!). Martin Luther King and Mandela are good steps forward (even Oprah deserves a big mention for her efforts to elevate spirituality and togetherness)...but reality says that such a black figure is today still unknown...maybe history hides it or the future holds it. I have a feeling though that before humanity's end, we will see someone step forward since the black community sees "reality" while the rest of the world at times gets caught up in ego-fantasies: "The Diamond in the Rough". Did not most figures of spirituality not come from being rebels and leading a different path? Somewhere there are numerous black people that can become that, hope it happens soon...our world needs help.

That will happen when Jesus comes and shows his real identity---who is a black man---and will shock the ENTIRE planet.
And that day will not happen until...

2 Thessalonians 2
....there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.



And this man of sin is the false image of Christ.

This fool again refuses to shut his damn mouth and listen to wisdom but is up in my face questioning me!

Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
Main Entry: brass
Pronunciation: 'bras
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English bras, from Old English brs; akin to Middle Low German bras metal
1 : an alloy consisting essentially of copper and zinc in variable proportions

WHAT COLOR IS COPPER? GET A PENNY AND FIGURE IT OUT!

White AS wool , White AS wool and snow. JUST LIKE A BLACK MAN WHO IS OLD!!

i was raised catholic, and it really pisses me off when people say this stuff. now dont get me wrong, im not christian, because organized religion in any form is stupid...::particularly trying to attack community churches


1. lied about the identity of christ? who hasnt? if the catholic church were the only ones to have their own story then THIS FORUM WOULD NOT EXIST!


2. worship objects: what objects are you talking about here? dont even list the rosary, holy water, the building itsself, etc. its frivolous and unneccessary,yes, but so is religion as a whole

3. worshipping mary as a god: never worshipped mary as a god. believe mary to be a communicator to god. look at the creed: "I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord"
the creed goes on to say "concieved of the virgin mary" and thats it. mary, be gone! and hail mary? "hail mary, full of grace. the lord is with thee. blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. holy mary, mother of god, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death" you can look at it literally ad say "oh they bow down to mary!!! they hail mary!" but when the prayer was written, what else are they gonna say, "gee, thanks alot mary, for being jesus' mom." mary, in the church, is considered to be a connector to jesus, and a sanctuary for all feminists who believe that god is a woman.


4. known child molestors: yeah, thats true......my bad!


personally, i dont follow the catholic church because it sucks...ive grown up in it, it sucks. i dont follow any other church because they suck too. even if i havent been there, to me the idea of "religion" sucks.. so ha!
