Ghetto Uprising by Sawaad Amen Ra
I PUT NO STOCK IN RELIGION. BY THE WORD RELIGION I HAVE SEEN THE LUNACY OF FANATICS OF EVERY DENOMINATION BE CALLED THE WILL OF GOD. I HAVE SEEN TOO MUCH RELIGION IN THE EYES OF TOO MANY MURDERERS. HOLINESS IS IN RIGHT ACTION, AND COURAGE ON BEHALF OF THOSE WHO CANNOT DEFEND THEMSELVES, AND GOODNESS. WHAT THE CREATOR DESIRES IS HERE.
“The temple of the most high begins with the human body, which houses our life, essence of our existence. Nubians in America are in bondage today because we approach spirituality through religion provided by our grand father’s and mother’s slave masters. We must stop confusing religion and spirituality. Religion is a set of rules. Regulations and rituals created by humans, which were supposed to help people grow spiritually. Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, political, divisive, and a tool for power struggle. Spirituality is not theology or ideology, it is simple a way of life. Pure and original as was given by the most high. Spirituality is a network linking us to the most high The universe…and each other As the essence of our existence It embodies our culture, true identity, nationhood and destiny. The word `religion` means business, a God for sale. Religion is created by man, as opposed to spirituality, which is found in man.”
