As a Christian, you were taught to have what amounted to blind faith in what you were taught about the bible and your religion.
But now you are having a crisis of faith and have doubts about those teachings that keep you awake at night or cause you guilt and shame to a point that you become sick to the stomach. But you have no idea where to fact check the bible or the religion of Christianity.
You are not alone. There are millions of Christians and former Christians in the same boat of having doubts and living with anxiety. You have no idea where to go or even how to start getting answers for those doubts, fears.
In this article, you will learn the origin of a few ideas claimed to be revelations and new to Christianity when they were not. You will also get some basic resources that will allow you to begin fact-checking the bible and Christianity if you choose to delve deeper.
Christianity was new on the scene in world religions. But what you have as Christianity is a fringe aspect of an African spiritual system that was misunderstood, misinterpreted, and oftentimes changed in response to feuds with other spiritual systems (Gnosticism) of that day.
The reason Christianity can hold people in beyond the fear is that they keep juuuuust enough of the ancient spiritual truths in to support the misinformation. But make no mistake, the new dogmatic information of Christianity is not true.
The Kemetic spiritual system is the basis of the Christian religion. If you ever want to fact check Christianity you can do so through the ancient Kemetic spiritual system and science. Just about everything in the bible, be it personages, Christian traditions, and holidays originated from the ancient Kemetic spiritual system.
That last statement is not hyperbole or an exaggeration. It is quantifiable, verifiable fact.
I was raised as a Christian. It is the foundation of my entry into spirituality. I am no longer Christian and at a point in my past, I considered myself an atheist. I now consider myself a member of the spiritual but not religious (S.B.N.R.) group. Even during that time period of being an atheist, I still had an underlying belief that there was something greater than me. Spiritual but not religious simply means I no longer affiliate myself with any religious group but live life from a spiritual perspective that is without the need for dogma and the guilt, shame, or fear religion creates.
As a Christian, I was taught to accept and believe it all or you have nothing. That is a part of the dogma and I have found is not true. There is a much richer and deeper spiritual connection beyond the dogma. [Learn more here about African spiritual science and the origin of KRST]
Through the ancient Kemetic spiritual system I learned the original intent and knowledge of what became many Christian doctrines. I also learned the truth behind many biblical stories and scriptures. Because of the knowledge and disassociating myself from the dogma and doctrine of Christianity, guilt, fear, and shame is no longer a part of my days as it was when I was religious.
I left Christianity to simply rebel against the organized religion version of God. I rebelled against ideas that caused separation of people based on anything that did not recognize the validity of all people to exist in their own way. I rebelled against the contradiction of a “loving God” that could send you to hell for eternity with no chance of redemption.
Looking back on my time within Christianity it was like living with someone abusive always in my head.
As a believer, I lived through cycles of fear and anxiety of endlessly burning in hell brought on by ideas of sin and guilt. Repenting and rededication produced temporary relief from the anxiety until a seemingly arbitrary misstep or transgression, such as a “sinful” thought produces a fall from grace and started the process all over again.
As a Christian, I had a relationship with an entity that requires total submission and blind obedience, unrealistic expectations, who had mood swings, “He” saves me even though I’m barely worth saving AND, I should be grateful to him for this kind of psychotic love!
In my youth, I didn’t think of it in that way. I just knew deep down that the dogma I was taught was not correct. My ideas of God have changed radically since my youth and in the most positive and empowering ways.
Ancient Egypt is the origin of Christianity
My search to find the basis of Christianity and the Bible lead me to Khemet. Part of which is the land we now call Egypt. I was astonished and ecstatic! As a member of the African diaspora here in the United States, I was taught that Africa had no history worth noting. I was filled with pride to realize that all the Abrahamic religions copied, plagiarized, and used knowledge gained from the Kemetic spiritual system as the basis of their religions.
Much of what was taught in the Kemetic spiritual system would now be considered new age and new thought but also coupled with earth science, biology, medicine, and psychology. What we separate and compartmentalize in the west as spiritual or secular the ancient Africans didn’t.
The principle of monotheism started in ancient Africa. EVERYTHING is an aspect of the original source of creation in African spiritual science. One aspect of misinformation about ancient Egypt that is still prevalent today is that the ancient Egyptians worshiped many gods and animals. That’s COMPLETELY false! For the ancient Africans, there is only one source; one true God. And everything in creation is that source in another form. Monotheism is the basis of all their beliefs.
But make no mistake the originators of these ideas were from interior Africa. I don’t say that flippantly. There is much documentation trickling out through individuals that call themselves Kemetologist. If you have ever wondered what Africans believed before colonization and slavery then the system of ancient Kemet can be a good start for understanding African spiritual beliefs all over the continent.
Because of so much documentation on the walls and temples in ancient Egypt, the Kemetic spiritual system has become the mouthpiece for African spiritual systems. Most of them have common themes just different names and different levels of philosophical development.
The spiritual system we study today is the culmination of thousands of years of development. It didn’t come out of the box complete and in its most developed form.
Formulas instead of dogma
Many of the ideas we read as history in the bible would be considered formulas (mathematical relationships or rules expressed in symbols) by modern-day standards that work across many facets of the human experience be it spiritual or secular.
For example, in the bible John 10:30 states, “The father and I are one.” This scripture is an expression of an ancient Kemetic formula based in numerology that works across what we would call earth science, psychology, and metaphysics in modern times.
here is what I mean. Nature was mankind’s first teacher. primitive people noticed a plant would die in the winter and a new one would grow in the spring. The death and decay of the plant in the winter became the foundation for the growth of the new plant in the spring. It was realized as a part of the cycle of life [earth science]. Out of death came life. For the Ancient Africans, death and life became two sides of the same coin. One could not exist without the other.
“Father time” is cyclical in nature. The cyclical father was known as Ausar in ancient Egyptian mythology. Heru, the son, represented the ability of a phenomenon to reproduce itself or perpetual renewal. Hence, “I and the father are one.” On one level this scripture is expressing the cyclical processes of nature.
With the above example, I don’t mean to imply the ancient Kemetians that developed the spiritual system were primitive. They were not. Think about it, they built pyramids that can’t be duplicated by our modern technology. There is a modern-day egotistical bias that says we know everything the ancients knew and more. This is being proven erroneous. What I mean is the ideas that became the formulas developed over many thousands of years and evolved into the spiritual system. The origin and basis of the development have been forgotten or ignored in modern times.
On a psychological level, the same formula works symbolically like this; when something happens in your life that causes a shift in your way of thinking the “old” consciousness has died and a new enlightened way of thinking or consciousness is born. Without the death of the old way of thinking the new way of thinking and the “new you” could not exist. Because of the shift in thinking and a new consciousness you were “born again” psychologically and mentally. Just as the plant died and rose again in the spring, so did your new mentality from the death of the old. Death becomes a psychological metaphor.
The ancient Africans called this new stage of psychological enlightenment “going forth by day.” As in coming into the light; being enlightened. The sun setting and darkness coming on was the symbolic “death.” One way enlightenment was symbolized was as a rising sun. On one level it was the symbolic rising from death [darkness; the underworld].
These ideas were written in the coffins of the pharoahs. because of where they found the writings, grave robbers called these ideas “the Book of the Dead.” Egyptologist accepted that name. That same Book and ideas are what the bible is based on. The reason why the son/sun of God was so prominent in the bible is that the light of the rising sun (going forth by day) was symbolic of enlightenment in African spiritual science. The bible is based on a fringe piece of ancient African spiritual Science.
The ancient Africans didn’t worship the son/sun, they had a profound respect for knowledge, wisdom, and enLIGHTenment.
Before Christianity and the doctrines of eternal damnation, most ancient people believed in reincarnation. For the ancient Africans, That same cyclical formula applies to us as human beings. Our physical body will die. However, our soul will rise from its physical fetters to inhabit another physical form at some point. You will be “born again.”
Gnostics and early Christians misinterpreted this idea to mean rise again in the same physical form. They didn’t understand the science nor the cultural context from which the ideas originated.
The first law of thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it can only change forms. In the African spiritual system, you are from one source. You being an aspect of that source means you cannot be destroyed. In the Kemetic spiritual system, YOU are not your body. The real YOU is the soul that precedes the body. That energetic or metaphysical part of you cannot be destroyed. In other words, the scientific idea of the first law of thermodynamics is applied in the ancient systems by stating that you are “eternal.”
John 10:30 preserved a way of the ancient African thought process and spiritual science. But because we were taught a specific dogmatic way to view the bible we lose the practical application the formula can provide in our everyday lives. We worship the idea not realizing that it has meaning to our very way of being and evolving on our journey through life.
How much more empowering is it to recognize and understand that a part of all change and growth, be it personal or spiritual, a death of the old must precede the new?
It gives an empowered way to look at difficulties that may occur in life. Rather than the teachings, you are broken and in need of another’s strength.
There are so many deeper and empowering connections like this contained in the bible. But you have to know the original Kemetic teachings in order to uncover the intent behind the dogmatic teachings. If you are Christian you will have to move beyond the fear that you were taught to not question and examine.
As Christians, we were taught that true faith is to unquestionably accept the teachings of Christianity. That’s not faith, it’s mind control. Faith in the African spiritual system is about connecting to the source of all creation in a way that is empowering, not debilitating. In African spiritual science, faith becomes a tool to free you from ALL fear, guilt, and shame. Part of that African faith is to realize that the universe is conspiring in your favor. It is a positive way to look at existence. Not because of some pollyanna type ideas, but because of Universal law. The original African spiritual science is powerful and empowering!
The Bible was born from the Kemetic spiritual system and science
As I stated earlier the basis of all Abrahamic religions can be traced back to Kemet. A quick google search will reveal that the oldest Christian bibles, the Septuagint (Old Testament) and Codex Sinaiticus (Old Testament and New Testament), were both compiled in Alexandria Egypt. The Old Testament was written in Hebrew. The original New Testament was written in Greek.
Why does that matter? Because it means there is a direct connection from the Greeks to the Bible, ancient Africa, AND African culture and cosmology. That also means it’s not a stretch of the imagination that Africans, through the Greeks and then the Romans [creators of Christianity], could have influenced Christianity when the most sacred book to Christianity was produced from local knowledge in ancient Egypt.
The knowledge of African spirituality traveled up the Nile river over thousands of years and reached Egypt. The origin of Egyptian knowledge began with the African people living in and near the African rift valley, which is where humanity was birthed.
But In the land of Kemet, there was no religion. Their wisdom was unparalleled anywhere or anytime on the planet past or present. Egypt was the “holy land” in antiquity. Christianity inherited much of its knowledge from the Greeks who were trained in the African spiritual systems in ancient Egypt.
Their wisdom teachings were such a part of Egyptian society they did not have a name for it like Christianity, Judaism, or Islam. That will make perfect sense when you truly grasp the basis and depth of their wisdom.
It is time that humanity wakes up and recognize that the dogmatic religious systems (like Christianity) are causing divisiveness. The consciousness of humanity is starting a new cycle of expansion. By its very nature, religious beliefs will stunt the evolution of human consciousness. We must now look to the past and the basis of the religious teachings to understand the power and majesty that is within each of us. It is time to move beyond the cookie-cutter ideas of religion.
Think of it as the difference in religion and spirituality. Spirituality is a personal connection and commiseration with the divine. Religion is crowd control.
You are divine in the Kemetic spiritual system
The major philosophical difference in the Ancient African view and Christianity is this; Ancient African spiritual science taught about evolving to realize your own divinity. In the Kemetic spiritual system, you are the divine in human form (remember there is only one source of ALL creation). It is analogous to you being a drop in the ocean of the divine. What is an ocean except for a multitude of drops? The only difference between a drop and the ocean is the magnitude.
Whereas Christianity became more about a relationship TO the divine. Through inheriting Greek Gnostic error in ideology human and divine were separated and being human became a detriment to developing spiritually. The Greek error is analogous to the ocean being somehow a separate entity from the drops that made up the ocean. It becomes an illogical disconnect. How is a drop in the ocean different from the ocean? How do you separate one from the other?
That’s why you can have doctrines like “total depravity” and “The Fall” within Christianity because as a human you were seen as different, defective and tainted compared to the divine. This is an idea originating from Gnostic teachings.
There was no such ideology in the original African spiritual science. There is only one source and everything in the universe is that source in its own beautiful form expressing itself in the freest and most authentic way possible.
It’s the way you should endeavor to live your life on a daily basis. in order to truly be happy you have to live authentically. Authentic means “of undisputed origin.” That means you must live life from your own inward directed center. Not from a set of rules and a dogmatic box that you should fit in order to get a reward when you die. You must begin to define your life for you, by you, and have the courage to live the definition.
Now, I have given you sources to investigate. Don’t stop here. Dig deeper, there is a treasure waiting for you.
