Black Nationalism has been much influenced by Gnosticism. Suggest you research what Gnosticism is all about. They believe in the worship of man, Jesus/Messiah is just a type and anyone can aspire to this type of spiritual perfection. The millennial utopian Kingdom will be physical government, brought on by real men. This doesn’t mean that it is not spirtual. Gnostics believe in a Pleroma, a Godhead, somewhat like the Hindus, but they don’t believe in an afterlife in a spiritual heaven with a fatherly God figure. I think the Pentecostal that believe in Kingdom or Dominion theology also have common Gnostic root influences as Black Liberation Theology.
“Suggest you research what Gnosticism is all about.”
Bad assumption on your part.
The title includes the word “God” in upper caps. While much of what you say in #23 and #24 is valid, your use of the word “god” in #23 defeats your explanation why the use of “God” in the title is valid.
I.e., I agree that O may have been thinking of “god”, but there is no basis to suggest he was thinking of “God”.
Othewise, I thought the article was informative.
