It’s hard for me to absolutely believe that there is such being as God, at least according to others around my way. I’ve been told, sometimes without permission, that God is a  gentle God. I’m told He – God is a male by the way – is almighty who created the Earth and the heavens. I am also told that He loves all people.

Why is it hard for me to accepting that version of God? Honestly speaking, I’ve seen no evidence of a kind and benevolent God who loves everyone. Instead, I am reminded that God apparently has limited power who only cares for certain people. The prayers of those people are heard and considered while the prayers for others by others are ignored. The usual response as to why is because God is working on His time, not our time.

Sounds like a procrastinator to me. I mean if God is that powerful and caring, shouldn’t He step in without hesitation and solve the world’s problems?

In the last post I touched on the fact that God is humanized. For precisely, He’s been whitewashed and heterosexualized. God is a white male who cares for only white heterosexual men here in America (in a special way) and all over the world with white heterosexual women being a close second. Everyone else, especially those with dark skin, is hated and forsaken by God because of their skin. The dark skin is a sin, a sign of human inferiority, and God hates that. This is why whites are at the top damn near everything because this is what God wants.

This is also why black people can never truly win. Sure, you can pray for an end to white racism, black internal racism, exploitation and all other ills plaguing blacks worldwide, but that seems to be too much for God to handle. Instead, pray for something simpler like a new car or a job. You’ll likely get that than the chance to be truly treated as a human being. He’s no Martin Luther King, Marcus Garvey or Malcolm X. He’s just our Savior, and to some us, he’s our White Savior – which explains a hell of a lot.

God can not stand homosexuality. He intended the opposite sexes to be one with each other and not with themselves. It says so in the Bible that such an act is a sin, and you must go with what the Bible says without thinking even if you pick and choose which is convenient. Apparently to some church-goers, homosexuality only sin that is worthy of attention. Any other sin such as murder, adultery, and hatred comes second to none. Sexuality and procreation are prime concerns it seem.

And yet, when you question this and other ideals, self-proclaimed Christians will chastise you to death. If you are a nonbeliever, to them, you are on a one way trip to Hell. You don’t fully believe in God and therefore you don’t get to go to the realm of clouds and angels. That’s not unlike saying that if you question how this country performs, then you hate America. And if you don’t love America, you are worst than a terrorist.

But, there is a plausible argument.

Most religious people believe that God is omnipresent which means He’s everywhere, even inside us. Therefore, God hasn’t done any of those things because humanity has corrupted God in its attempts to humanize Him. Man isn’t perfect and as such, we made God imperfect as well. This is why the world’s problems persist without much or adequate help.

This is also why many people within the poor communities and communities of color turn to God so much. History shows that we’ve been forced to believe the worst in ourselves. We were brainwashed to think we are inferior and as such, have no power. We continue to internalize that message day in and day out while also believing that God -a white male god will help us.

This is why problems persist throughout the world. Humanity has turned what we call God into a human being with limits, flaws and hatred. Only when mankind, especially blacks, wake up and realize their true potential will God truly answer prayers. Until, then, we are forsaken.
