And you make assumptions about what you don't know. And you're willing ot gamble your enternal soul for it. The Bible's prophecies have already
you condemn people for making assumption about what they don't know, and say they risk going to hell, then say things like this:

Revelation 1:13: "And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about
the paps with a golden girdle."
Revelation 1:14: "His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;"
Revelation 1:15: "And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters."
Upon seeing Christ, John describes the hair on his head and face being white like wool. He then describes Christ's eyes (the white part) as being
red according to the prophecy. Genesis 49:12: "His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk." Then John describes the color of
Christ's feet is like brass (golden brown), as if they were burned in a furnace (meaning very dark) and his voice was loud like the roaring waters.
Skeptics try to argue that COLOR is not in the Bible or historically and biblically it does not matter when it relates to Christ's ethnic appearance,
however the prophet Daniel saw a vision of the Israelites' Messiah, Jesus.
Daniel 10:5: "Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of
Daniel 10:6: "His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet
like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude."
Please notice that Daniel has the same exact description of Christ as the Apostle John and stresses the COLOR of his arms and feet!
first, you assume
john is referring to the whites of jesus's eyes, of which the scripture goes into no detail. then when it says his head and
hairs were "white like wool" you assume
that it is referring to texture and not color.
lets review this sentence fragment:
"white like wool"
white is the adjective, the word which describes the nouns, his head and hairs. wool is the reference noun, which is used to describe how white his
head and hairs were. if it was referring to texture, it would have read
"curly(replace with any other adverb or adjective that describes the texture of wool) like wool"
and i dont know how many times i must stress that brass, whther polished or burned in an oven, looks like this:
now can you honesty say that any of these have the same color as the skin of a black man? looks much more arabian to me, which would make more sense
as Jebus was born in the middle east.
but instead of taking the scripture literally, like you claim you do, you make your own assumptions and interpretations, and present them in a fashion
that supports your claim.
i think you realized you were wrong long ago, but because of your pride(isn't that one of those deadly sins?), you will not admit defeat.
so you tell others that they will go to hell for believing in a jesus that isn't black because you believe
they are worshiping a false christ.
i suppose you oughta go repent or confess, or whatever your religious beliefs
require of you, unless you want to go to hell for your sin of
