There are many atheists and skeptics who say that religion was created to control the masses.

As a Black man, I often hear others say how can you believe in a God that was forced on your ancestors by the slavemaster. They forget or ignore that the bible did not originate with Europeans, but that’s another discussion.

Once some people are convinced their particular view is correct, they claim everyone else is BRAINWASHED.

It’s amazing how one can assume you haven’t studied history for yourself and that you’re being naive.

There are plenty of believers like myself who are educated, have studied history, have studied other cultures and still choose to believe in the Lord God of Israel from Everlasting to Everlasting through His Son and our Savior Yeshua, Christ Jesus, The Lamb of God.

The history of the bible goes beyond and before European influences.

Besides…Those who are truly connected with God don’t have ‘religion’…we have relationship.

1 Timothy 1:12 (NKJV)

For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.

  1. Amen! Not brainwashed, “washed in the blood of the Lamb,” I love that.

    It’s kind of sad, but on the internet a common meme is, “I need some brain bleach.” You see some horrible thing and your soul just cries out for some way to wash your brain with something better. Well, there is Someone better, and He really will wash your brain. And the Lord I know is not afraid of us or our questions. He does not ask us to surrender our will or our critical thinking skills. In fact, He nurtures such things, so the odds of us being brainwashed by the world are far greater without Him. Without Him, you can’t even see half the stuff coming at you and it often slips in unnoticed.

  2. Having my brain washed is a good thing. It really needed cleaning! (And still does.) 🙂

    Ephesians 5:25-27 New King James Version (NKJV)

    25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
