A New Black Theodicy

Black theology is summarised by the ideas expressed by James H. Cone in many of his earlier books. However, his biggest critic William R. Jones considered a fundamental flaw in Cone’s theology, the question of whether or not God is in fact a white racist. ...

Prophethood in Israel

In the days of the Hebrew prophets and prophetesses the call to prophethood was a mark of distinction. Moses said to the Hebrew people ...

The Theocracy of the Holy Ones

It is always important to remember the Egypto-African concept of divinity, Neteru, whenever you feel particularly down. ...

The Joy of Suffering

It is important that we always remember the African origins in Hebraism; it is here that the Egypto-African concept of black divinity, Ausar, reveals to us the essence of our subjective nature. ...

The Black Woman's Right

As can be discerned from my books and blogs I am very outspoken in my defence of black women’s right to Goddesshood. ...

Why They're Goddesses

Having explained in Mother of Exhibitionism how the black woman can become a manifestation of divinity it is my view that we should no longer hold back from calling them such. ...

The Mysteries of Eden

When we think of paradise most of us think of Adam and Eve in the garden naked and unashamed. We mostly see a white couple similar to those painted from the time of the Renaissance belly button included. ...

The Sensuality of God

For those who have been following for a while it could be asked if the Hebrew God is really as sensual as I claim he is. They may feel that sensuality, and indeed sexuality, are sinful and therefore shall be abolished from God’s sight. ...

The Black Heaven

Many people ask me what sensuality has to do with spirituality and divinity, but if they were to do the knowledge they would find out it has a lot. ...

Who is the Goddess Hethor?

In continuing with this theme of Hethor and the Hethorian traditions founded in ancient Ethiopia and continued on in Dendera, Egypt; let us now consider how she came to be. ...

The Story of Moses

If you haven’t read An Ancient Egyptian Relation and The Mother of Exhibitionism I would suggest you read them before getting too deep into this blog post. ...

The Mother of Exhibitionism

The reason I am going down this brief crash course in the Hethorian traditions is cause it was once asked me what is the definition of a Goddess in the genuine sense. ...

A Ancient Egyptian Relation

Within the next few blogs I will be giving you some lessons based around the Egyptian goddess Hethor. ...

Gods and Goddesses

It may seem strange to have an obviously black man speak to you with terms like God or Goddess but that is what you are. ...

Wrestling with the Counterfeit

The obvious dilemma at this point would be the ministers of the white Jesus throughout the world, how do we know they are in the wrong, especially when they have so much signs and wonders following their ministries. ...

What is Real?

To continue on with the theme of the white Jesus anti-Christ started in Living in the Last, first of all, we must begin with the idea of how the false messiah will look. ...

Living in the Last

The evidence presented so far from The Burning Question has been that of the black God, the black Messiah and the black Hebrews, and that white God, the white Messiah and the white Hebrews have either been usurpers or deceived. ...

The Burning Question

The ability of black people to move beyond the psychological predisposition that lead us into inferiority complexes begins with spiritual significance. ...

A Black Psychological Definition

As concerning our psychological development as black people it is imperative that we progress through the phases of racial empowerment. This begins with racial self-consciousness. ...

Psychological Foundations

It can very easily be said that the social situation creates the moral and psychological: that what occurs in the mental and ethical facilities of a person are the result of the socio-cultural mechanisms in place in the society in question. ...

The Reason for Black Suffering

For those unfamiliar with the concept of black Hebraism I will recommend you read over my previous blogs The African Roots of Hebraism and Children of the Kingdom to get a deeper understanding. ...

The Seed of Abraham

In The African Roots of Hebraism I refer to black people as the original Hebrews and the current white Jews as nothing more than converts. You may therefore ask at this point, why, after all the Jews have been through, am I subjecting them to this further humiliation and controversy? ...

Children of the Kingdom

As noted in my blog The African Roots of Hebraism for the progression of our development as a people it is vital that we come to terms with who we are. ...

The African Roots of Hebraism

Black divinity is an entity which can revive given the correct inspiration. Within our history is the story of the great Egyptian (Kemetic) divines, and the Kemetic concept of the divine was itself expressed in the word Neter. ...
