Take your argument up with Heavenly Father...

____I did not make people BLACK.

And, I didn't make the BLACKS (Egyptians) the first people to enslave people (the HEBREWS).

You STILL need to PROVE Adam and EVE were black all the way down to Jesus.

You STILL need to PROVE ADAM and EVE were from Africa.

GENESIS 4:10-15

10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.

11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;

12 WHEN THOU TILLEST THE GROUND, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

13 And CAIN SAID unto the Lord, MY PUNISHMENT IS GREATER THAN I CAN BEAR.

14 Behold, THOU HAST DRIVEN ME OUT THIS DAY from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, THAT EVERY ONE THAT FINDETH ME SHALL SLAY ME.

15 And the LORD SAID unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. AND THE LORD SET A MARK UPON CAIN, LEST ANY FINDING HIM SHOULD KILL HIM.

15... The Lord set a mark upon Cain so that anyone who found him would know who he was.

The LORD set a mark upon Cain to distinguish him from all overs.

So people would know instantly who they were dealing with. We know there are black people and we know there are white people.

We know God can do anything he wants.

I never said The Church of Rome changed Genesis 4. I said it has not been proven to be the ORIGINAL.

You are a BIGOT. It's ok for Egyptians to enslave Hebrews, but its not ok to face the facts about history and learn truths about the history of the Church of Christ.

I was making a point why the Church of Rome - whom were the ones to give the order to kill Jesus Christ...

did what they did.

When you author a document...

and someone or a lot of someone's

modify, edit, add without authority,

WAIT A MINUTE...

That don't make no sense

Well I think Martin Luther said it best...

Let's go directly to the author.

The Church of Rome had not commitment to Jesus Christ... they killed him and all his disciples...
they did nothing less to St Peter the first Pope.

Turning the powers solely of "religion" to complete powers...

When the Barbarians took over Rome:

The Church became COMPLETE AUTHORITY not only Religious AUTHORITY.

The barbarians increased their raids killing the Romans
and they further strained the economy, which in turn disrupted commerce.

The Raids also forced the Romans into walled towns,
due to the spread of pathogens
and increased rate of depopulation in the West.

The decline of the Roman Empire is one of the events traditionally marking the end of Classical Antiquity and the beginning of the European Middle Ages.

So the Church of Rome took complete power over the Church Jesus Christ set up.

They destroyed the documents they could that were produced by Jesus Christ' scribes, apostles.

It was a devastating blow to the work of the Lord.

There is no debate about this happening... it is history. Do you understand?

The church capitalized on this forced-ignorance through the 1,000 year period from 400 AD to 1,400 AD knows as the “Dark and Middle Ages”.

Pope Leo the Tenth established a practice called the “selling of indulgences” as a way to extort money from the people.

He offered forgiveness of sins
for a fairly small amount of money.

For a little bit more money,
you would be allowed to indulge in a continuous lifestyle of sin, such as keeping a mistress.

Also, through the invention of “Purgatory”,
you could purchase the salvation of your loved-one’s souls.

The church taught the ignorant masses,“As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, the troubled soul from Purgatory springs!”

Pope Leo the Tenth showed his true feelings when he said,“The fable of Christ has been quite profitable to us!”

1684 John Foxe's Book of Martyrs.

It documents the martyrdom of all of history's recorded saints from the original Apostles of the First Century, to the mid-16th Century Reformation.

He used graphic woodcut illustrations showing the gruesome methods of execution and torture used against those who gave their lives for the truth of God's Word… nearly 3,000 pages.

The Church of Rome kept taking the scriptures and burning them so they would have ultimate power for money!

AND,

-> killing the Apostles after Jesus Christ
-> killing mothers and children for the mothers teaching the children The Lord's Prayer...
-> Burying ppl alive,
-> beating ppl to death,
-> boiling ppl in oil,
-> burning people at the stake for trying to have a relationship with God outside of the Church of Rome.

... THIS IS THE HISTORY OF THE BIBLE

... THE REASON WHY THE CHURCH OF CHRIST HAD TO BE RESTORED.

... Joseph Smith was a simple farm boy who God picked to translate the Book of Mormon for him. Who God picked to restore his Church: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

My opinions and theories have not been bestowed upon me by a person or by a Church I reach my own conclusions. I pray to determine if something is true or not.

Mormons got that from the Baptists, who got that from the Muslims...
How the Muslims passed it down to the Christians is something I'm not entirely sure of, but I believe it was partly due to Jewish literary influence (not trying to degrade Jews, just facts, they were indoctrinated by Muslim ways in Spain for 700 years), esp. in Spain, and partly due to the Crusades...
but we know prior to the 13th century Christian Europeans in the west had little to no religious anti-black sentiment. There may have been some isolated ignorance but nothing that sustained itself until after 1492
I'm curious. Do you think it was it anti-black sentiment, or was it the dark side of a free market?
