The colonial encounter
between Europeans and Africans
did not always end with Europeans triumphing.
Either at first, or later.

Check out this fascinating moment
in the history of
colonial encounters between Europeans and Africans:

From 1557 to 1632,
#Jesuit missionaries from Portugal and Spain
endeavored to convert the #Ethiopians
from their ancient form of #Christianity
to Roman #Catholicism
2/9
After fifty years of failing to convert Ethiopians,
the Portuguese sent a new group of Jesuits to Ethiopia in 1603,
including a priest named Pedro Paez,
whose diplomacy and sympathy for the
tenets of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church
enabled him to convert the emperor.

1. It’s the last week of August, and I haven’t made a selection for this month’s #EpicChristianFails blog post yet.

Have a suggestion? Please tweet it w/ the hashtag.

For those just tuning in, I’ve been doing this series for four months, figuring we could use some comic relief.
2. While Christians do indeed say and do the darndest things, I’m afraid I’m never going to top the first month’s post—so to speak. #EpicChristianFails: The Cross and the Clitoris is... Well, the level of fail involved is beyond epic.

3. For the second month in the #EpicChristianFails series, I highlighted an embarrassing story about Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter “museum” filing a lawsuit over water damage 😏

Nothing ruins a biblical epic like some bad weather.

So apparently, it's #WorldLionDay, which provides me with the ideal moment for starting a thread on the so-called Lion of #Judah.
The tribe of Judah is one of the twelve tribes of #Israel, who all descended from the 12 sons of the patriarch Jacob, as was stated in both the Old and the New Testament. Each of these tribes has a specific symbol, as shown below in an Israeli mosaic in a street of #Jerusalem.
It is written in the New #Testament: "And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel." [Revelations 21:12-13]

@Aabhas24 This Myth of thousand year old Dalits n Lower Castes Oppression by upper castes has to be debunked now.This is a colonial myth now propagated by Marxists.The word “caste” carries poisonous history. The word “caste” is derived from the Portuguese “casta” — meaning lineage, breed,

»#YuriBezmenov may well go down in history as a #saint by the #survivors of the generations to come.

"Within our midst we have politicians, theologians and teachers who are following an alien political agenda, who are feeding #Christians, especially their vulnerable children, with views contrary to the #Bible.

IMPORTANT TERMS TO
UNDERSTAND #ISLAM

Knowing 4 Arabic Words
May save our Civilization
goo.gl/7dxRLH

4 Key Words with summary Images below (see thread below)
#Takiyya allows and encourages #Muslims to deceive #Infidels for the advancement of #Islam. It is important when learning these Arabic Words to view them through the lens of theology.

How will you help God? Apparently not by virtue, but by the ends justifying the means.
You cannot understand this stuff without taking into account the pillars of faith. People jump all around this sensitive subject, because #Tawriya is ESSENTIAL to #Jihad => a PILLAR of the faith.

It would be like trying to explain #Christianity without #Forgiveness.

"They are not all Israel which are of Israel. Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, in _Isaac_ shall thy seed be called.”
"The promise in Genesis was given to Abraham 'because thou hast obeyed my voice.' Today’s Jews, as for almost 2,000 years, have not obeyed God’s voice, but have rejected and cursed Christ and make a mockery of the teachings of the Bible.
"The #OldTestament prophets, speaking infallibly and without error, thus foresaw this development, and that there would be a group called "Israel" and "Jew" which would not be the rightful heirs of Abraham.

“Why do you think we call the last century the great American century? Because AMERICA SAVED THE WORLD -- not once, not twice, but THREE times from the evils of Nazism, communism, and despotism. If you want a little piece of evidence, here’s one fact to show you ...
...how different the American value system is: We’re the only people on the face of the planet, in the history of the entire world, to hold a technological advantage in war AND NOT USE IT FOR CONQUEST, but instead use it to free and liberate people around the world.
In 1945 we had the bomb no one else had.We could have taken that weapon and forced every nation on the planet to submit to us.We could have controlled the entire planet-that’s been the way of the world throughout history! Any time a nation had an advantage in war what do they do?

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉

Kneecapped, I’m kneecapped,
Here looking out,
Where few really see me,
Worshipping their doubts.

Just like you all, I have a father and mother,
I’ve been to school, been educated,
Played games with my sisters and brothers,
Yet here in church I feel denigrated!
You stand around with smiles on your frowns,
Grasping the Spirit, claiming God is all around,
The sermon well focused, all about our saviour,
And how you all do so well, loving your neighbour!

Portuguese Archbishop Menzes writes about #Hindus - “They believe that all religions come come from God, and conduct to the same end. The Brahmins believed the difference between their religion and that of Portuguese was abstinence from animal food. AD 1599

These Moroccan coins feature the so-called Seal of Solomon, often depicted as a hexagram, similar to the Star of David. The coins are dated respectively 1271 A.H. (1855) and 1290 A.H. (1873/4), minted by king 'Abd al-Raḥmān and his successor, Muḥammad IV of #Morocco.
The Seal of Solomon is the signet ring attributed to the Abrahamic king/prophet Solomon. It is said that Solomon used this ring to control the spirits and animals. The design as a hexagram is often depicted on medieval #Islamic banners, coins, drinking-cups or in mosques.
According to the Catalan Atlas (1375), the two Anatolian beyliks of respectively Karaman and Candar featured a Seal of Solomon on their flags. The symbol was popular among the Turkish beyliks, and was later used by the #Ottomans in their mosque decorations.

This #GallOfBitterness being dished out in this video by this man is not the representation of the Church, please let it be clear that this man's hatred and BIGOTRY was what's leading him. This does not represent #Christianity:

And Rev Canon from the South East with his heart of BIGOTRY still went ahead to dish out his #BIGOTRY to these hearts just because of his hatred for Buhari.
This level of #GallOfBitterness can destroy faster than HELL...#AvoidIt

The #JubrilFromSudan started from Nnamdi Kanu just a few days after Buhari returned to Nigeria against all odd & contradiction of your vision SEERS.....
Now even the educated folks & religious leaders joined him in his #GallOfBitterness
Who should we blame now?🤣🤣🤣🤣

Dear #MAGA #Desis & other assorted non-white ppl who support Republicans because of anti-blackness or lower taxes or the feeling of proximity to power, observe this pattern of escalating & widening targeting in #immigration policy & #deportation:
1. Criminal illegal aliens "bad hombres"
2. All undocumented immigrants
3. End TPS "Temporary Protected Status"
4. End family preference in green cards "chain migration"
5. Reduce/eliminate residency lottery
6. Review citizenship applications for fraud & revoke citizenship &
deport ppl who've been here for decades
7. End birthright citizenship for children of undocumented migrants
8. Muslim ban
9. Revoke residency visa for people who have used certain public welfare benefits

I've probably forgotten some other measures, and no doubt there are more
