When we believe in something for many years, and that belief is being enforced by yourself and others as you live from day to day, over the many years of your belief, it becomes very difficult for you to let go that belief, even when the truth is revealed to you suddenly. That belief which has become a comfort and a treasure to you over the period of so many years, is very hard to let go, and especially if this belief is also held by many other people especially if it is a belief which is held world wide. You kind of wonder what the big wide world will think of you if you suddenly follow the new revelation and leave that belief alone.
Religion can be very threatening in that way
because it has to do with the Supreme Powers of this Universe, and having to do with either going to Heaven or going to Hell, and most people would like to go to Heaven if it exist, instead of Hell, to be burnt with fire when they die, so they want to be pleasing to Jes-sus Christ when he return at the end of two Thousand years, as promised by the religion which they have been preaching for such a long time.
Say whatever you want to say about me, but I do think that belief is a very different quality from knowledge, when you believe in a religion you are still waiting for the day to come to prove whether what you believe is true or false, but when you know some thing then you have the knowledge of that thing and is sure about it. I
have been a great believer in many things and later found them to be untrue, so I am not going to decieve my self or be conceited and you also should not be. If some thing does not appear true to me, I am not going to say that it is true, just to please others, regardless of how long I believed in it. Belief is belief and knowledge is knowledge.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
