ESAN PEOPLE: How much do you know about your history and/or home town?
Is Black History Month. Time to reflect, revisit our history and preserve our African Cultural Heritage.
The different between Europeans and Africans is, African has culture but European has no culture but heritage. Culture is a way of life of a people. It is reflected through:
5) And music etc
There always have to be a beginning for there to be an end. Jesus Christ, the saviour of the world bible clearly define his place of birth, his family history, and the small town he came from Galilee. We shouldn’t be ignorant of the past and the world around us. After all, prices of butter and bread affects us all, isn’t it? We, Esan People/Africans we should educate our children about our history because if we don’t know where we came from how shall we know where we are going? If we do not know where we came from how shall we educate the next generation.
In as much as mortals wants paradise by all means they have already planted seeds on earth that will continue to reproduce the order of their kind. Therefore, our children and we all need to know where we came from to be able to know where we are going. Sometime for a nation/family to succeed or change they have to first of all look back at the history of their past leaders, correct the mistakes of the past and build on what is working and leave whatever is not working behind.
Over spiritualization leads to physical deformities, mental reluctance and spiritual bankruptcy.
RELIGION and TRIBAL bigotry are deadly spiritual disease, which only can be cure by genuine revelation of God’s word. So, Know Your History Know Your Home Town. God is neither black nor white, choose the side you belong and go to work. Men are naturally mad on the subject of religion, and “the revival, restore them rather than make them mad.” Charles Finney.
