An African American man asked this question on social media:
Where did Christianity come from and who introduced it to the black man and woman?
Where did Islam come from and who introduced it to the black man and woman?
His answer: Christianity is European, and it is good for Europeans. Islam is Arabian and it is good for Arabs.
Who did African put their trust in before Christianity and Islam?
His answer: They placed their trust in life itself and the African woman. Nature is the model we should follow not man. The first law of nature is self-preservation. Put yourself first, love yourself not with a selfish love, that is ego driven, but do it with love, that is the very essence of who you are. God is love so who are you?
Darrell Sr answers to the social media writer: This will help if you research my answers. Where is Cush located? Where is Ethiopia located? Where is Libya and Cyrene located? 1. Moses’ wife was a Cushite, and because of Aaron and Miriam’s prejudice God struck Miriam with leprosy. Read Genesis 12:1-15 2. The Queen of Sheba or (Saba) visited King Solomon and was taught by him. She was so blessed by his wisdom she gifted him with an abundance of riches. Read 1 King 10:1-29 3. An important official of Queen Candace of Ethiopia was actually reading the book of Isaiah but could not understand it. Philip helped him understand and taught him about Jesus. At that moment the Ethiopian asked to be baptized. Why? To become a Christian. Read Acts 8:26-40 4. On day of Pentecost there were people from several nations. Cretans and Libya near Cyrene were there. They listened to Peter’s message and 3,000 people accepted Jesus and was baptized, and more was added to the number daily. Read Acts 2:1-40 Simon of Cyrene helped carried the cross for Jesus. Read Matthew 27:32; Mark 15:21; Luke 23:26
There are many more examples of blacks being introduced to Christianity in historical Africa and in the first century prior to some Europeans. I truly pray this helped. Be blessed.
