IS SLAVERY A SIN???
So I was just going to talk only about Slavery but I decided to touch on the subject of "Hair". Please if I see one more stupid ass blog talking about Hair I am going to shoot somebody. For the love of God, ladies please I take God beg you, NOBODY gives a shit about your hair, it doesn't matter if your as bald as your yansh or you rock weaves. NOBODY gives a shit, I don't get why this "Natural Hair vs Weave" thing is a topic. Honestly, don't you all have better shit to discuss than "Hair".I am starting to think that there are really some "insecurity" issues lying dormant behind all this "Hair" topic. I know myne whitman agrees with me lol, please hun help me explain to this females that it's just "HAIR". (Now back to my main topic).
Honestly, my pipo I am depressed o. Not severely depressed but I am weary, very very weary. I just got to thinking where did all that innocence we had as children go? When do we lose that innocence? And why is it that we do not fight more to keep that innocence. Before I go on, I need to address this issue. This blog is not set up to try to convert anybody away from their religion, I do not believe that anything I write in this blog can make anybody suddenly decide to stop being a christian/muslim etc. Rather the purpose of this blog is to honestly get everybody to :
1. Question with boldness.
2. Hold onto the truth, even if you don't like it, because it IS the truth.
3. Speak without fear
From time to time, I might come off sounding like a "know-it-all" but I am here to say that "Controversy" does not know it all. I simply try to "think" for myself and "ask questions" no matter how difficult the questions may be. I shall ask them.
What happened to our innocence? When I was a kid, I knew what was right and what was wrong innately. The innocence of our childhood made us able to detect evil from a mile away.But as I grew up, I started to justify some certain evils and gradually but slowly I started to compromise on evil and before I knew it my innocence was stripped from me.
The other day, while having a religious arguments with my friends both of them female. One akata, and the other Nigerian I asked two of them whether "slavery was a sin". The akata replied yes slavery was a sin, nigerian girl replied "no, that it was not a sin".The Nigerian Girl replied that slavery was wrong but it was not a sin. The akata babe was "shocked" that the Nigerian Girl could not see that "slavery" was a sin. The Nigerian babe did not want to admit that slavery was a sin because she knew I would then point to the fact that the bible approved of slavery. Honestly, at the end of the day I got the naija babe to admit that slavery in any shape or form is indeed a sin and just because the bible does not call it a sin does not mean that it is not a sin.
As a child if they had asked any one of us. "Is slavery a sin"? We would have answered with a unanimous "YES". I was shocked that in this day and age, I could ask somebody whether "Slavery was a sin" and the person would reply that it was wrong but not a sin. The other day my friend Reine said the same thing that slavery was not a sin. She justified it by stating that since the bible did not regard it as a sin, then it could not possibly be a sin. Honestly, am still boiling hot from that her statement, and am telling you it's people like Reine who would not have had a problem with casting "blacks as Three Fifths" when the U.S Constitution was written. So because a book that was written 2000 years ago did not state that "slavery is a sin" that means it is now ok to enslave people? That would mean that all those bastard plantation owners that treated blacks like shit are probably "chilling" in heaven sipping tequila? I mean, seeing as them enslaving people is not a sin, how can they possibly be in hell?
In conclusion, this is what I am trying to say. Every single one of us has a basic sense of what is right, wrong, evil, good, etc. Now slavery as a whole is a SIN because it is evil. Trying to justify it because a book that claims to be the word of God, approves of it is nothing short of OUTRIGHT STUPIDITY.
