THE DANGER OF THE BLACK SUPREMACY THEOLOGY AND IT'S MISSING LINK.
Lately i have seen and heard people share all kinds of divisive and discriminatory teachings that doesn't promote peace for humanity in anyway. I am fully persuaded that when man kind was created it was in the will of God that all men should live in peace irrespective of their skin colour. THE BLACK MAN IS NOT MORE IMPORTANT OR SUPERIOR THAN THE WHITE MAN NEITHER IS THE WHITE MAN MORE IMPORTANT OR SUPERIOR THAN THE BLACK MAN for God is no respecter of persons and all men are created equal.
Black supremacy teachings will only cause controversy and won't totally better the lot of the man of colour. In it's deception it's even being applied to our faith! There are arguments and difference in opinion about whether Jesus is a black man or not. Jesus was a Jew. Whatever category you classify a Jew into is what Jesus was. If a Jew is a black person to you then Jesus was black when He was on the earth, if you categorize a Jew as a caucasian person then thats what Jesus was when he was on earth in the flesh. Whether Jesus was black or white is not what is important, what is important is that men of any colour should have love and mutual respect for one another. Many of these black supremacy teachings are interesting and insightful but they aren't well balanced or thought out, it emphasises empowering the black man or black community (which is not a bad idea in itself) but the issue is which kind of empowerment are we refering to and how do we go about it? THE ONLY TRUE EMPOWERMENT THERE IS, IS THE EMPOWERMENT FROM GOD'S SPIRIT. Every other type of empowerment is a mirage, a distortion and an illusion. Emphasising God's Spirit among the black community is the missing link in the black supremacy theology, and with the Spirit comes a wisdom that is the opposite of the kind commonly found in this world which comes with pride and eventually causes division. Black supremacy teachings in my opinion has only caused division.
Just like the keys of the piano that are black and white which work together to produce melodious sounds God has created caucasian and black coloured people to live and work together in unity for the betterment of the world and mankind. It's when we can live together as one, it's when we can live together in unity irrespective of the colour of our skin or some difference in lifestyle that it can be said that humanity is producing the right 'sound' to God's glory.
