Is this Africa?

  1. In response to the recent negative comments about Africa.

    10 Most Stunning African Cities You've Never Seen

    The Most Beautiful Cities in Africa

    Hosea 4:6 says "My people are destroyed by a lack of knowledge...".
    Unfortunately, the real fake news has been the fact that only the negative aspects of Africa get broadcasted so people truly do not know how Africa really is. Yes these are pictures of Africa, unfortunately, you don't see these on the news often or ever. Share the knowledge.

    No doubt Africa has many problems, but everywhere does. If you only export the negative aspect of a place people will
    believe that all of that place is like the worst parts.

    What would happen if we only exported the fact the the USA has a very bad drug problem, alcohol problem,
    a terrible human sex-traffiking problem, a crisis of mental health in the school system,
    mismanagement of funds on all levels of government, a health crisis were just about everyone knows someone with cancer, a moral crisis where we are fighting about what marriage is and what bathrooms men and women should use, the biggest exported of pornography and pedophila to the world, etc, etc. If we only exported that image of ourselves to the world we would seem like a pretty undesireable place as well.

  2. It is a messed up thing indeed that people portray Africa using negative things only. And YES America is leading in all the things you mentioned above. If people get to the point of legalising same sex marriages and arguing who should use what bathroom...... it doesn't get any messed up that, i believe America is the World leading nation of making Pornography and they travel to other countries just to make pornography.... and they propagate it to the world.... this is a sick thing indeed. Then they call less developed countries 3rd world. Then they talk about the American dream....think about that. PATHETIC.

  3. What is great in man's eye, rarely equals what is great in God's eyes. I have no doubt the tower of babel was considered the height of greater civilization, and God hated it.

  4. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

    Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.

    The beauty I see in Africa, is the land that God has created. Even in the aridness of desert there is beauty there, if one would but look. The animals that roam its varied lands. Yet, most especially the beauty I see are my Brothers & Sisters in Christ Jesus, who battle daily to spread the Gospel, with many being martyred for doing so. Not just in Africa, but in a World that has no love for them or us, regardless of where you live.

    This is the beauty I see, which is the Body of Christ.

    We were not in control for the places that gave us birth. We are in many cases not in control for the good or evil they do either. We stand or fall as witnesses of Christ Jesus, wherever we find ourselves! That is who we are!

    Focus on the spiritual, and less on the temporal. Walking in His ways, growing in His Word, desiring to be in accord with His will for us wherever He chooses to place us. Give Glory to God that He has chosen you amongst so many!!! Uplifting and not diminishing each other.

    I leave you with these verses.

    Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether [it be] good, or whether [it be] evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

    But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matthew 5:44

    A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:34-35

    With the Love of Christ Jesus.
