To tell our he truth when I was a child I used to think that all of those sayings were true becuse they said it was written in the bible, and the preachers were saying that Noah was a holy man of God and he was told by God are angels to get a pair of every creature upon this earth on the Ark after he was finish building it, because there will be a great flood and only those on the Ark would be saved. Now they really did not explain how old father Noah was able to get all these large animals like the Elephant and Kangaroos and the lions and horses and Zebras as well as those poisonous snakes on this Ark, and if he had to go all over the world to collect these various creatures, then that was a very big job for him to do. Then he would also have a very hard time catching those gingi flies, dog flees and other tiny creatures like sand flies. So, that would mean after he got a pair of every creature upon the face of the earth, the millions of other creatures all over the earth, would then perish in the flood because they were not lucky enoug to get on the Ark so they could not get save.
In those days whatever they said is written in the bible that was what we would follow whether we read it or not, or whether it was true or not, whatever the preacher said that was what we follow and if you try to question the Pastor you were considered to be ungodly and were looked down on by the people, so, you just follow what your parents and the adults go along with. Any way it would be good if some of the Pastors of today would explain some of these things to the people and if they think they made mistakes, then they can just apologise to their people.
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 HEAR ONE BLACK LOVE.
