There have been always from time to time a lot of talk about the Ark of the Covenant, talk about how holy it is and how it is being guarded and protected by the great religious people, I guess to prevent it being stolen. But was it not stolen away by Menelik the first and taken to Ethiopia, I think that is what is written in the books, that Menelik stole it away, for if it was not given to him, and he took it then it was stolen, would you all agree or disagree?
And what is this Covenant made from, paper, wood, stone, iron, metal or what? And is this ARK of the Covenant something to be afraid of? And if it was made by the hands of man, then is it greater than man? or is man greater than it? man being the Creator of it. Then the fact that it could not have taken it self to Ethiopia, should allow us to assume, that it is an object which was made by man, but is probabaly being worship by man.
The word Covenant means an agreement between two groups are two people. I will be looking at the opinions of the great experts on this subject, so I can learn as much as I can, I really need to clear my head of all the religious ropes which can just shackle a person and keep them in mental and spiritual bondage. Beliefs and assumptions are allowed on post, as long as they are not classified as knowledge.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere
