I follow a couple of Antifa whores on IG for research purposes (porpoises imo), and I've noticed a large satanic presence within that organization too. Lots of reversed pentagrams, goat heads, and various symbolism.
Some even chain hashtag shit like #antifa #satanist lol, they are such dorks.
Santanism is not Ifa. Some Satanists worship Satan. Others are atheists who are more about self-empowerment. Neither has anything to do with Ifa and the spiritual system associated with it
The point is globalists have been advancing and promoting anti-deist ideologies with a specific intent. Break down the moral fabric of society. Regardless of whether you believe in God or not, the writing is on the wall. They want to kill "God" and elevate themselves to divinity.
The point of this thread by OP was to show that some BLM founders practice Ifa. Somewhere along the way, another poster conflated Satansim with Ifa. Ifa isn't Satansim, and that must be made clear in the context of this thread.
True, I wasn't drawing a correlation, but they are correlated.
Both are being used to rebel against Christianity and Western civilization as a whole.
I think you're making a false correlation between two different things. No-Christian religions should not all be thrown into the same kitchen sink and falsely associated with something they are not. Satanism has one agenda. Ifa has another. There are Satanists, Ifa practioners, and Christians within the ranks of BLM and Antifa.
If you're worried about Christianity and Western Civ being attacked or "rebelled against," there are lots of other real threats out there...starting with the fact that most Christians are ignorant of their religion's full history ...as well as the fact they pick and choose what scriptures to follow.
Of course, the elephant in the room with Christianity is the fact that it is more than likely one of the very tools the "antichrist" will use to facilitate his leadership (if, of course, you believe in such things like the antichrist).
They obviously aren't the same thing, but serve the same purpose, which is to undermine Western cultural values and establish moral relativism.
Your explanations of religions being different is obvious and irrelevant. This isn't a matter of religious freedom. It is moral subversion.
If you're unable to recognize that, then you've already fallen victim to relativism.
You say they're not the same thing, but you talked about witchcraft, paganism, demonism as if they are Ifa. That was your first mistake. You should admit your lack of knowledge in that space and understand that is why you and I are evening engaging.
Your second mistake is not recognizing there are tons Abrahamics (Christians, Muslims, Jews) within the ranks of BLM. Most of them would say their support of BLM represents what their faith teaches. By your own logic, Abrahamic faiths are being used to undermine western cultural values and establish moral relativism.
That said, why don't you explain the undermining of moral relativism that Ifa promotes, and we can discuss it. You haven't done that yet. If anything, Ifa practitioners tend to live a moral life. The fact that BLM founders practice Ifa doesn't mean they represent the whole of Ifa practitioners.
In fact it seems that Christianity is doing a damn fine job on its own in terms of corrupting culture. Hell, the vast majority of Christians have their own ideas of God and morality which deviate from the Bible.
You're talking past the point.
You want to flex your knowledge of theology, which has nothing to do with the thread.
Replace Ifa with any form of vodoo/paganism/witchcraft. It doesn't matter at all, because I'm addressing the INTENT behind its usage, which is to undermine and subvert our culture, founded upon Judeo-Christian values which directly oppose necromancy.
They're using Ifa no differently than critical theory - convince the youth that their friends and family are villains, teach them new language and customs, and baptize them under a new religion which opposes that of their fathers. Divide and conquer.
I'm sure you know how this process works concerning Marxism, and this is just an extension of that.
This is a spiritual civil war. Feel free to secularize that however you want, but the meaning is the same.
You keep calling Ifa Voodoo/Witchcraft/Paganism because it deviates from some brand of Christian theology. It’s not “flexing theological muscle” to point out that you’re wrong and that you seem to be straw manning Ifa and using some notion of Christianity as a club to knock it down.
The crux of my dialogue with you has been that all religions have wackiness within them – even Christianity. You don’t have to be an academic to see that. You also don’t have to be an academic to see that tribalism (which Christianity highly embodies) makes it difficult to be objective about one’s cultural situation.
Nearly 90% of Congress members are Christian – left and right, democratic and republic. 71% of Americans are Christian, with disparate beliefs abounding. You have Christians who believe differing things who all have equal right to claim the name Christian. So, while Christianity can lead to spiritual good, it can also lead to complete fucking chaos given that it is subjectively applied.
You need to focus on the real problem of "spiritual wickedness in high places." You seem to have strong (yet uninformed) opinions about what Ifa is and its contributions to civil unrest. Yet you ignore the fact that Christians have specific contributions to this civil unrest. Christians comprise the ranks of BLM as well as BLM opponents. Millions of Christians support BLM. You also fail to acknowledge that you find Christians in all types of political and social situations - right and left.
You should focus your fears and the analysis of what's going "spiritually wrong" in the world with the very clear problems with Christianity and the inconsistencies of how that faith is practiced. If Christianity’s house was in order, the world would be a better place. Most American Christians don’t live by the Bible and instead live a form of Christianity influenced by secularism.
The real problem in this country with respect to spirituality is that a large group of certain Christians have been deluded by American Nationalism. They think they are the good guys, but they can’t see themselves as God would see them. They are legalistic, yet they fail to abide by the whole of the Bible. They are anti-evil, yet the turn a blind eye to certain political evils that advance their causes. They strain at gnats and swallow camels.
