In the early part of my life I was exposed to the Southern style Christian teachings where I was taught that we are all created equal in the eyes of God when it comes to our ability to commit sin…But when it came to the subject of racial disparities between black people and their white overseers the laws of man took control. I vividly remember when we had to travel 40 miles south of Jacksonville, Florida to go to the “colored beaches” reserved for the Negro population of that part of the state. My elders had no choice but to accept their reality…But once I left the South and came to California I knew there was a higher power, and that power was within me. If I am a child of God then I am a God too.
We as a people who all throughout human history and different cultures have always believed in a higher power or a God that we must believe in and obey without question. All of the religious laws we now choose to ignore or follow have always been written by men with their own personal agendas. We become what we think about most of the time whether it be good bad or ugly.
As a child of God I believe that each one of us is born with unique abilities to either help or hinder our fellow travelers on this constantly changing journey we call life. The times we now experience exists for all of God’s children to use their God given powers for the betterment of mankind.
