The Christian religion was birthed from ancient Kemetic knowledge. Christianity became dogmatic and in many ways toxic to humanity. Just like a classroom game, I played with my students called “telephone” when I was a school teacher the initial phrase started with did not get to the last student. It ALWAYS ended with some totally unrecognizable phrase different from its origin.
This is analogous to the spiritual system of ancient Khemet/Egypt to the religion that became Christianity. Personally, I don’t bash Christianity because there are still some hidden Gems in the bible when the cover is taken off the literal and historical teachings.
You might be shocked at what was taught originally as something positive and uplifting to what it became in Christianity based on fear and control.
One of the misinformed ideas about ancient African spirituality and consequently the ancient Egyptians is that they worshiped many gods and animals. This is false and spread due to ignorance and biases.
The monotheism that is the foundation of Christianity was founded within ancient Kemetic/Egyptian spirituality and subsequently became a part of Christianity through the Greek Gnostics. The bible, the Gospels, and personages in the bible are all of ancient Khemetic/Egyptian origin.
The Ancient Egyptians were monotheists.
Ancient Egypt was a distinctly African culture. [learn what is ancient Kemet here] The spiritual system that rested in Egypt developed along the Nile river bubbling up from interior Africa.
There are older African spiritual systems, like Yoruba, that have many of the same components as the Khemetic system but simply named differently. This Egyptian spiritual system became the mouthpiece for African spirituality. The cosmology that is found in ancient Egypt was the cosmology for many parts of Africa south, north, and west.
The point being is that the Khemetic system is not an anomaly in Africa. As a matter of fact, it borrowed and honed ideas from older African spiritual systems.
Many of the African diasporas want to know what Africans believed before European colonization. Ancient Egypt and its Kemetic wisdom is an entrance into pre-colonial African spirituality. Misunderstood Kemetic wisdom is what became Christianity and the other Abrahamic religions.
Here is a quick compare and contrast of Christian Ideology vs Kemetic Wisdom. Again, Christianity originated from this ancient wisdom system but changed many beautifully unifying ideas to the toxic dogmatic system we experience today.
17 To Adam, he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil, you will eat food from it all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.”

The best “believers” had the least knowledge
Example: Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”
If one cannot trust their own understanding then who can you trust?
The idea that you should have “faith” and not “knowing” is still a part of Christianity to this day.
EVERYTHING is the source of creation in another form
The wicked were those that remained in ignorance
In other words, the more you accepted the unbelievable, blind faith honored God
This ideology allows Christians to love God and in the case of many within the African diaspora have disdain and loathing for self (very deep psychological scares developed). The idea that you can be different from the creator allows one to not respect other parts of creation. Like other human beings that may believe different, live different, or animals that cause fear, or mother earth that sustains us.
A loving God that is different has been the means by which we can be punished unmercifully and for eternity. In ancient Kemet and within African spirituality there was no differentiation between God and it’s creation.
All of their philosophy science, theology, art etc. is based on the idea that everything in the universe is the same thing as “God” only a different aspect of it. They taught that everything that we experience comes from the spiritual world.
This principle never changes, EVER! This is true monotheism.
There were no devils in African spirituality, only contrast as a universal law. This was due to the belief that experience can only occur through contrast. It’s analogous to trying to clap with one hand. You need the other hand in order to make the sound (the experience). The other hand is not evil or the devil. It is a necessary component of experience.
The esoteric way to express this idea is the universal law of duality. From its ancient African origins, horns became the natural symbolic expression of the esoteric principle of duality or separation.
Based on the esoteric meaning from ancient African spirituality Satan came to be represented with horns.

Make no mistake that Christianity is African spirituality misunderstood and twisted into ideas that cause confusion and discord. Through the original African spiritual system, self-esteem and self-love were a byproduct.
Unlike Christianity where dysfunction and contradiction become the norm. That’s not meant to be an attack on Christianity. For me, having grown up in that system of thought and now being outside of it has caused me to recognize the difficulties it causes. My psychological training makes we aware of how the conflict and contradictions negatively affect us on a mental level.
But, because so many people live it and believe it the dysfunction has become normalized. Attempting to live a “Christian” lifestyle is the epitome of contradiction and confusion. I know because I tried my best to live it!
African spirituality is uplifting and liberating. In contrast, Christianity is a life filled with fear, mental anguish, and torment for anyone that attempts to stay true to its teachings.
Now you have a contrast in the original teachings that became Christianity.
