WILLIAM LYNCH VS. OSAMA BIN LADEN
I happened to be checking out the national news one evening, when I heard an item concerning a letter written to America in 2002 by of all people—the late Osama Bin Laden. His letter reminded me of a letter written to America hundreds of years ago by the late William Lynch. The ‘uproar’ over the Bin Laden letter made me laugh because a generation of Caucasian youth are supposedly swallowing the ‘lies’ contained in the Bin Laden letter as ‘truth’—and older Caucasians are upset that their ‘babies’ are accepting the letter as written. Unfortunately, a generation of older Caucasians have been telling American society for years that the ‘truths’ contained in the Willie Lynch letter are ‘lies’—even though some of them have been used against Black folk in American society for generations.
Plus, the Federal government has NOT paid the promissory note due to the descendants of Black folk who were slaves who helped build America—even though other races HAVE been compensated with cash, land, or plain old respect. Democrats have been dancing around this issue for years while ‘counting on us’ for our votes… But I digress.
Let me set this up accordingly. Bin Laden was steeped in Islam and terrorism; Lynch was steeped in the lucrative market of international slavery…in part, bringing slaves to America and making them more ‘docile’ to Caucasian plantation owners and masters. Now, there ARE those that see the swelling of the Bin Laden letter ‘belief’ groupies as ‘poetic justice’. After all, America—to many people—has gone from a bastion of Christian liberty and morality to a land of oppression and opportunity because of a wide variety of her national sins on public display daily.
Including terrorism against a race of people who happen to be Black.
A nation that has turned its back on God and Jesus Christ will suffer in many ways. We're only seeing the opening acts of what this nation is experiencing. One of those ways is that its youth will go a-whoring after strange gods and idols—such as the letters of William Lynch and Osama Bin Laden. Since BOTH writings are prominently displayed on the Internet, they are free for public consumption—and deception. It is advised for Christians to have their KJV Bible at the ready to accurately be able to separate fact from fiction—truth from lie. I would also add that BOTH writings should be read by parents to be able to ‘hip’ their children—and other youth—about the deceptions contained in each document.
I’ve got my copies for reference while I am writing my column this month. Interesting reading, to say the least. You won’t fall asleep on the dance floor with either one of these. Not to mention that the discussion period will be mind-boiling, to say the least.
History is cyclical, folks. The protests that we see unfolding in our streets currently are the same types of protests that were going on during my younger years. Civil Rights. Vietnam. Kent State and Jackson State. America is STILL a free country, and protests are protected speech—no matter the cause. What the Grandparents did, their children and grandchildren will attempt to do. What the Grandparents have left unresolved; by the wayside, or ignored, their children and grandchildren will be ‘lured’ by the same shinny things. Lastly, what sins the Grandparents have perfected—including ignoring God, God’s Word, or God’s enemies will come back to bite not only the younger generation—but the older generation as well.
Sin always has sharp teeth. Until sin is repented of, those teeth will STAY in the offender.
America has NOT paid reparations to the Black descendants of the slaves that helped to build this country. ALL other races abused by the Federal government have received compensation. IF this sin; IF the deception of Willie Lynch is allowed to ‘ride’, God WILL allow the deception of Bin Laden to ‘ride’. God has a way of punishing rebellion. Our two letters are only the beginning.
