Understanding The Legacy of A Master Slave Free Market Society

Updated on February 9, 2016

Philippians 3:13-14

70% of prisoners, 80% of rapists w/ anger prob, 71% of HS dropouts, & 63% of teen suicides are from fatherless/abusive homes #KingdomMan”.

Anybody viewing the above statistics have no problem putting a face, race or skin color to the numbers. But the question begs to be asked. Why is there so many problems in the African American family and community 150 years after slavery? The answer is quite simple. Try to engage most Euro-Americans about the lingering ravages of slavery and you are likely to get one of two cultural specific answers. I never owned any slaves so I am not guilty of anything or slavery existed in Africa long before the European showed up. Both answers are factual but are they true. The privilege afforded the descendants of Europeans could not exist if slavery had not set a precedent for Euro-Americans to be first and although slavery existed long before anyone can probably pinpoint the rules of the slave game were changed to accommodate European progress. Even as far back as Biblical days slavery had a limit of seven years, then the enslaved had to be set free and payed for their years of free labor.

As far as why African Americans cannot seem to get it together critics forget to think about the legacy attached to 400 years of slavery. The psychological, social, and economic stigma of being descendents of slaves allow the dominant society to enforce protocols that "immigrants" are not shackled with. Newly arrived immigrants have support African Americans can't get. For example, loans.

Religious"leaders" are a strange lot. Confronted with social justice issues they are usually silent. They talk about social problems and profess hypocritical righteous indignation profusely but offer no solutions outside Christian welfare. They feed the hungry, sort of. Once a month breakfast outreach ministry, food pantries , clothing drives and third world mission teams don't solve problems, they maintain them but most church folk don't understand that. Take for example, the above statistics. From a totally untrained perspective it appears a solution is at least being considered. However, this type of information is to re-enforce a Biblical based scriptural defined trend. That trend is ; since the problem is manifested in "fatherless/abusive homes" the solution is in "fathering". Fathering is church-speak for spiritual fathering. The problem with this is that Jesus commanded against spiritual fathering. Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)

And you should not call yourselves “Father”, in the earth, for one is your Father who is in Heaven - Matthew 23:9. It is mind boggling how religious leaders ignore, or use the Apostle Paul against Jesus command to promote this practice. But, why would "leaders" willfully disobey a direct command from Jesus who they profess to serve and choose Paul in practicing spiritual sons and daughters instead. The answer is not as complicated as it might appear.

The answer to this perplexing ability for "Christians" to disobey Jesus Christ can be found in the Apostle Paul who was the first to practice this in defiance of the command of Jesus. No true disciple of Jesus ever disobeyed Him. Nowhere can we find a disciple calling a fellow brother in Christ a "spiritual son". Paul does however in several places. The reason why many follow Paul as he imitates or follows Jesus is prophesied in 2 Timothy 3:2 - "King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy... Many follow the teachings of spiritual fathering because they choose to be disobedient. Paul even admonishes the church to only follow him if he follows Christ, yet too many ignore that part. In the Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010); here Malachi 4:5-6 is used to enforce Pauls' apostolic position... "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse." This is about natural fathers and sons and living in obedience to Gods' Word. Using this scripture in support of spiritual fathering no doubt enjoys consensus among certain ministries but is totally unscriptural and disobedient to Jesus Christ. For there will be a time when they will not obey sound teaching, but they will multiply teachers to themselves, according to their desires, and with an itching of their sense of hearing, 2 Timothy 4:3. This prophecy is being fulfilled. Point out what Jesus said in relation to Paul and most will quickly choose Paul.

Entertainment churches are hot items. Religious enter-worship-tainment may not be a recognizable definition, at least not yet but it is practiced very religiously. All of this, the flagrant disobedience, modern marketing techniques to bring increase is part of the legacy of America's slave owning past. Even Paul understood that God brings the increase, not seeker-friendly religious programs. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. 1 Corinthians 3:6-7 . This past that can cause even the most liberal of Euro-Americans to bristle and become almost as defensive as the hardest far right patriot nonetheless is as American as apple pie or public lynchings. Many of America's social ills are directly related to relationships defined by slavery and maintained by Euro-Americans as an inherited right, a legacy to protect. Every ounce of profit must be extracted at all costs. It is and always has been about money. The church many sugar coat its motivation but Bible believing Euro-Christians were essential to slavery and are invaluable to post slavery maintenance. Religion was not called the opiate of the masses in jest.

Well, one might ask, "what about the Emancipation Proclamation"? It was a noble idea , but since it is impossible to legislate morality it was and still is inadequate as an instrument of freedom. Slavery doesn't just disappear at the stroke of a pen and it didn't. America and by association, all Europe and the entire world owes its prosperity and over-abundance to the free labor that Africa was forced to give to the world. Many will read this and instead of embracing this truth will instead choose to dismiss it as the ranting of an ungrateful Black man with a chip on his shoulder against white people. That would be totally inaccurate. History supports what I write. However, I do have a problem when people fail to embrace Truth but instead choose to sidestep real issues.

Perceptions are powerful emotions. Perceptions of Black people are that they are lazy, seek handouts, enjoy living on welfare, are criminals, not to be trusted and are basically given a free ride they don't deserve. Yet, the evidence to all the above accusations are not only false but a created myth, the purpose of which is to redirect the real source of social ills away from those who profit from the myth. It takes lots of people to run a United States social services system. Many livelihoods depend on social services, besides, anyone who knows anything about US Social History, will readily agree that "welfare" was created as a cushion for young white mothers so they could stay home and raise their families. It wasn't long that the extra government money was used to outsource their duties to Black mothers. I remember white social workers coming around to Black neighborhoods asking door-to-door if anyone need assistance. My father always instructed my mother to decline anything "free" because as he always said; "nothing in this world is free".

Slavery was supposed to be generational as well as eternal. Once a slave always a slave even if it is written somewhere otherwise. Think about it. How many treaties did Euro-Americans honor? tic,tic,tic,tic... if you need more time I'll wait......... and the answer is NONE. That's right.
So, to believe that a signed document affected any real change in the social cycle of America is a joke. Owning somebody was very addictive. American people have to be the less social and political conscious people on the whole planet. Why do you think it is called a "free market" system? I'll tell you; because it is built on a free labor slave system, and is maintained by free market slave principles. It can only survive if there are "others" to exploit . But there is Good News... nothing last forever.

      Hello Certified Handy,

      Dear Lord Jesus, I ask, will this never end. This is a mighty powerful piece of writing and I have no problem embracing the truth of the past of slavery and that most of the wealth was built on the back of the free labour that gave. My heart aches daily with what that has left behind and here I am in Africa, seeing the effects of it each and every day as people still identify themselves by skin colour rather than by the fact that we are brothers and sisters and the children of the great I AM. Slavery is still prevalent in the world today. In countries all over the world. Women are drugged and sold into slavery. The sex trade. Foreign workers engaged under false pretences and kept in appalling conditions. Child slave labour in sweatshops serving the desires of the rich from faraway countries. It will always be with us just as poverty is and will be until the return of The King of Kings when He comes in all His glory. I have no idea of the American system but I do know they are all manmade and corrupted - wherever you go. God Bless CH.
