When Christians say they are “Blessed,” or that you are “Blessed,” they are being both ignorant and accurate, at least in the Western context.
If you look at the Etymology of the word “Bless” it means Blood, literally. To Bless something it means to sprinkle or drench something in Blood. The Pagan would spread blood on their alters because they worshiped bloodthirsty gods, so that had to offer Blood to carry the favor of their gods. When Monotheism came to Central and Northern Europe they had to marry it to the Pagan religions in order to get the masses of Europeans to roll with it.
This is all common knowledge to anyone who’s to totally Spooked-Out by the myths of Christianity and the Bible.
But here’s we it gets deeper; this modern Western society and economy has drenched everything in Blood, everything is based on death, violence, destruction, and exploitation. Everything. There is nothing that comes to our lives that is not drenched in Blood, from the money we earn, the lands we dwell on, the gas for our cars, the simply and extravagant pleasures we enjoy in this land, it’s all the result of tremendous Bloodletting, massive killing, genocide.
Sometimes we do the killing for Elites, sometimes we do the dying, but it’s all to sustain this sick system of White Domination that Christianity is a significant component of, just like Capitalism and Consumerism.
So, if you just look around yourself, look at our computer/smart phone, your clothing, the land you are sitting/standing on, it’s all produced and brought to your through killing other people, taking their resources, and forcing them to produce shit at slave wages under the threat of violence.
So, if you see a good job, a nice car, a raise in income, a new item, or any other fortunate event in your life in this land as a “Blessing,” you are correct, it is drenched in Blood, and others had to be sacrificed to bring you that fortune and benefit.
The only way to accept, enjoy, or properly use these “Blessings,” or benefits and opportunities is to use them to attack and subvert the very system that brings them to you at the expense of the rest of humanity and the world’s ecosystems. But we see that most Christians don’t do that.
Christians are so egotistical that they think that Jesus, a man who shunned wealth, sacrificed his comfort, and opposed all established institutions of power from the Government to the Church would “Bless” them with new cars, money, and other shit that’s not only counter to their faith but drenched in blood.
They think “their Jesus” would hook them up with a good job as he allow the bulk of humanity to starve because their faith is that strong and Jesus love them (in particular) that much more than 3 billion other people. SMH. Just think of how self-centered and warped to profess that you are “Blessed and Highly Favored” in a world where the majority of humanity dosen’t have adequate shelter, food, education, or other basic accommodations.
We think that Prosperity Ministry is a new thing, but gluttony, greed, over-consumption, and egocentrism has been central to Christianity since Monotheism was brought to the Cave Men.
So, the next time you hear some one say; “I am so Blessed and Higly Favored,” know that they are being very ignorant and totally accurate at the same time.
Finally, I want to emphasize; I ain’t telling anyone to be poor, to live in the dirt and never enjoy the “benefit” of living within the Empire instead of in the lands bombed and suppressed by the Empire, but the only way to be a good, Godly, decent, moral, relevant person is to use your status as a Citizen (Whites) or Subject (non-Whites) of the Empire is to use your opportunity and status to fight the Empire from within.
