Christianity in Africa and the Third World.
Originally posted by vinay86
Christian Missionaries travel in the whole world, to convert people to Christianity. They employ every possible means to convert people to
Christianity. Their main targets include poverty-stricken countries and their Illiterate, Impoverished, tribal populations who have very rich
Indigenous cultures, which are closer to the nature. The rich cultural heritage of these countries is being destroyed by these missionaries, as once
converted to Christianity strict measures are used to prohibit that person from participating in his cultural activities or follow the belief systems
preached in his culture.
They setup Health-care and Educational infrastructure in poor countries, but only those are entitled to avail those facilities who agree to convert to
Christianity. They lure poor people for conversion to Christianity by bribing them with money to buy land for farming and other alluring offers. In
the guise of Humanitarian activities they actually promote class hatred among people by brainwashing them with fake stories about how Jesus is more
powerful, and he listens to you more than your god. Your god is bad, mine is all powerful. Some people fall for it and some don't, resulting in
division and hatred in their society.
The first thing that needs to be pointed out is that the "Jesus" business is a multi-billion dollar business, and that the religion business yields
not only the highest profit margin of any business (since they are selling no-thing) but also that it requires little or no Capital investment to set
up since there are no tangible products to sell, and thus it is an ideal business in the impoverished Third World where innocents are ripe for
I have travelled throughout the Third World in my 52 years of life and I just recently returned from 5 weeks in Africa (not in a tourist resort but in
a local village), and I can honestly say that religion is as big a curse on Africa and the Third World as poverty, tyranny and corruption.
Part of the problem is that the naive Western missionaries who go to Africa and the Third World are products of Western society; they often do "not"
go with the intention of exploiting anyone but they do not realise the disease which their good intentions leave behind.
The consequence of Christianity in Africa is myriads of independent churches which are little more than exorcism and fake miracle businesses. which
prey on the poorest and most vulnerable people, women, children, the sick and the disabled.
If you have 50 minutes to spare, the Channel 4 film on Nigerian Christianity is an insight into the sickening nature of African Christianity where
children are accused of being possessed by demons, are often enslaved, beaten or killed, and often their only hope is to have someone pay a clergyman,
often several months wages to perform some silly exorcism ritual.
I have heard Western Christians argue that such African and Third World Christians who prey on the poor and the vulnerable are not "true" Christians,
but this is simply not the case. Part of the problem is that the Christian image of a perfect man (i.e., Jesus) is a model of a religious
shizophrenic, a fake miracle worker and an exorcist.
The Seven Signs (extract).
It seems that almost every thread on popular "Religion" forums on the Internet is often hijacked and turned into an excuse for endless inane ramblings
by the Biblical fanatics, all of whom are charlatans who do not genuinely exhibit the 7 signs, nor do they even believe in them, and further they are
all entirely aware that the fraudulent claims of their dead god can be disproven.
"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
Consider the 7 Signs of those who are allegedly "not" condemned according to the Gospel of Mark
1: You must believe.
2: You must be baptised.
3: You must be able to perform exorcisms.
4: You must be able to speak in New Tongues.
5: You must be able to pick up serpents.
6: You must be able to safely drink any deadly poison.
7: You must be able to lay hands on the sick and miraculously cure them.
If you do not have the 7 signs, you are allegedly condemned by the fictional first century religious fanatic and fake healer Jesus, and you won't get
to spend all eternity with other fake healers and religious charlatans.
[t was also falsely stated by the fictional Jesus of the Gospels that you would do even "greater things than he."
We know that Christians cannot safely drink poison or miraculously cure leprosy and blindness, and since the professional Christian hypnotists know
this also, they have just developed this much easier "belief only" theology, where you just become a rambling religious fanatic, talk incessantly
about the teachings of Jesus, and yet reject the teachings of Jesus, apart from a few ethical maxims about love and so forth, which were common to
that era; it is really just all about "believing" and about acting like a total hypocrite and being eternally rewarded for that.
Unfortunately many professional hypnotists of the multi-billion dollar Jesus business "do" claim to be able to
perform miracles and they simply prey on the sick, the elderly, the disabled and the vulnerable.
Unfortunately this kind of exorcism and fake healing business is ideal for the impoverished, uneducated, unscientific and gullible population of the
Shame on the Christians. Woe to you. Great and Terrible and Dreadful and Wrathful is the curse that you place on yourselves by spreading this vile
religion; this damnable lie; this blasphemy against humankind that would have innocents tremble in fear before a fictional and sadistic god and his
