The Oluwo of Iwo Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has said that Black men are still living in ignorance by worshiping the ''White man's God'' while demonizing theirs.
The Oba is noted for always being in the news for one reason or the other,mostly not very pleasant reasons,but this time around,i think he has a very valid point i think our people should pay attention too.Sadly,it won't happen.
The monarch said Black men see their gods as destructive spiritual beings who kill, whereas they see the White men's God as the all merciful father who gives prosperity.
He said it is this way because the White man "upgraded" his God from the God of the "old testament" who "kills and committed so much atrocities" to the God of the new testament who is "merciful and never did anything wicked even though he asked for burnt offerings, son of Abraham to be sacrificed, plagues the land, told King Saul to kill everyone in Amalek..."
The Oluwo said the White men created a new image for their God so that he will be accepted and viewed as an all-loving father. But Black men do just the opposite and present their gods as people who kill and should be feared.
He called on Black men to "upgrade and update" their gods too and stop saying things like, "Sango will kill you, Ogun will kill you, Sanponna will kill you."
BLACK MAN STILL IN IGNORANCE !!!!
The white people came up with a smart and wise idea.. they jettisoned the old God in the "Old Testament" and makes Him part of their history cos that God in the latter kills and committed so much atrocities and then came up with a new God which is in the "New Testament " that the Christians of today preaches ( A God that makes you prosper with riches,merciful and all goodies of life etc) never did anything wicked even though he ask for burnt offerings, Son of Abraham to be sacrificed, plagues the land, told King Saul to kill everyone in Amalek all male, female and even suckling infants ( sarcastic) !! But the Black Man refuses to upgrade and update theirs over 2000 years after the white man did... Our own gods and the most popular ones have not been upgraded or updated to a merciful one that brings you riches, prosperity and all goodies of life etc thats why we worship the merciful God of the white man compared to Sango who infact was a good man but all we know about Sango today is Sango will kill you, Ogun will kill you , Sanponna will kill you etc when will our own gods stop killing their children and be merciful for once ??? As for me and my entire household "I will opt for the merciful ones that brings goodies, merciful, forgiving, Just etc until the Black Man decides to have the good God that does not do evil until the whole Black Africa changes their minds and upgrade or update their own old testament to a new testament !! Its not only Yoruba Ronu (Yoruba think deep) but gbogbo Adulawo eyan dudu eronu yin wo ( but all Blacks should have a rethink) !!! Emperor Telu1
