I recently came across an old African saying that perfectly illustrates the relationship between...
religion: in this case Christianity, and imperialism. It goes something like this...
When the white men first came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land.
Then the white men taught us how to pray with our eye's closed.
When we opened our eye's we had the Bible and the white men had our land.
It a wise statement.
Judaism, Christianity and Islam have a violent history of condemning the beliefs of others and imposing their beliefs on others. Sometimes they do this cruelly even by killing. Some of them are still doing this today.
The question then is, why should the pagans listen to these groups about God, when such groups have committed such ungodly acts in the name of God.
It is man that has done GOD wrong. The better question here is why do you judge God by mans deeds, As you said it, the white man came and help them self’s in other words, God only wants us to love one another and to help each other.
