I do not think that there is any thing wrong with reading books, but we must make sure we humble-stand what we are reading. I myself have read some of the bible many times through out my years in life, and there are some good things written in the bible but so many things are so complicated and appears to be segregated, and many people see these things but they are afraid of the bible, and will not speak or write against any thing in that book that sounds an reasonable. The bible is not a plant which grow from the
ground like a mango tree, it is just a book which were written by men or women.
Now David as a young man was a sheperd who took care of his father's Jesse sheep, so, he was always out there in the forest on his own and met with various wild animals and had to defend his herd as well as his self against them. It was such a dreadful and fearsome life, which caused him to write the Lord is my shepard I shall not want. One day he had to kill a lion and a bear when they try to take one of his sheep, he held the lion by the beard and cut his neck and then killed the bear as well on that same day.
All of that made him famous among men but especially among women, and as he grow older, he just could not say to himself, Ihave had enough women even when he had many wives and concubines, and in the end he failed because of greed for power and women, and Solomon his son and those who followed in the generation, walked in that same foot steps. You can find these information in the books of Samuel, 1 and 2 and in the book of Kings ONE and TWO, and in the books of Chronicles, it is all there for you to read. I am presently reading those books and I am not afraid to report my findings. Look at them for yourself.
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.
