#ootd Dress by #36point5














I’m kicking this week off in denim. Its universal,  comfortable and can be dressed up or down. Ive recently spotted denim in the office, at church even most recently, Bridesmaids dresses!!! Ummm yeah?












“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes.”

"A lie does not become the truth just because the majority believes it."


This painting is exhibited at the Coptic Museum in Cairo, Egypt. It is said to be predate the Black Jesus Christ painting in the Church of Rome from the 6th century….


I come from the bible thumping South! Many of us were taught to not ask questions and to simply believe. I remember getting reprimanded at Church as a kid because I asked a stumped bible study teacher what happened to dinosaurs and why they weren’t on Noahs Ark!!


After I moved to New York, I became exposed to other belief systems and frankly some were just as logical/illogical as what Id learned growing up. This really forced me to question some of the doctrine especially since many refer to Christianity as the religion our slavemasters forced on us once Africans were enslaved in America. I asked myself, how could I base my life principles around what the oppressors taught my forefathers! !??? I did my research and my thirst for knowledge began.
As I began to study the true root of Christianity, my relationship with God became more advanced and intellect based. 
I went to synagogues,  mosques,  Kingdom Halls, temples etc and I really made myself a student in theology,  biblical theory and the life of Christ. I grew into a Christian woman, I developed spiritual maturity. With that came a sense of peace, tranquility and confidence that I can’t even explain. 

Christianity is a way of life, but many of my fellow Christians have resolved to not become students of the teachings of Christ. They merely conform because that’s what they were taught as kids. They can quote scriptures from memory, shout, chant, even try to pray over others BUT they have no true knowledge of divinity.  Half of them couldn’t even explain the White Jesus painting hanging in their Grandmother’s dining room. #shade

Today I ask, why are you a Christian? If your answer is because your mama said so, I employ you to start your spiritual awakening today….

Yes.
Now this is just not fair!

UPDATE: Before today’s game, in protest, the team met center court and left their warm-ups on the floor. They will also play with their jersey’s inside out.

This Sterling disaster is a circus isn’t it!? It seems as if the internet bigots and the internet socially conscious folk have all chosen our sides and we are in the midst of a hated battle once again! While I do enjoy reading the blogs,…
