Gee I don’t know? Should I be arrested if I took some of the Queen’s shit?

A similar and equally ridiculous question was asked in a British newspaper related to the jewel and other artifacts stolen from the Subcontinent (now India, Pakistan and Bangladesh). It was about Koh-i-Noor; The Indian jewel in the Queen’s crown. It was confiscated from Kharak Singh in 1850 by the British East India Company and became part of the British Crown Jewels when Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India in 1877. In simple words, Imperialist Britain stole it from the Subcontinent and never gave it back.
This is why I laugh real loud when folks from Europe or even USA tell me people from the “third world” are thieves and corrupt individuals. Last time I checked it was the fancy First World Folks sneaking in our lands, stealing our prized possessions and then having the shameless gall to ask if it should be returned but never returning what they stole.

Why is this even a question/debate?

Can never reblog this enough

Especially the first map…Ethiopia alone is unconquered.

I’ve seen the second image more than any.

… whatever you do, do all to the glory of God —1 Corinthians 10:31 

Are you walking by faith or sight today? In other words, are you choosing to believe God no matter what your circumstances look like, or are you making decisions and focusing your mind on what you can see.

As believers, we have to remember that we aren’t just subject to this natural realm–what we can see, hear, touch, and smell. No, we have access to the unseen, supernatural realm where all the promises and blessings of God are stored. When you choose to walk by faith, you are opening a door from the natural realm to the supernatural realm and drawing the blessings of God into your life.

Remember: with God seeing isn’t believing; believing is seeing! Throughout the day, begin to declare, “Father, I want to thank You that my payday is coming. You said no good thing will You withhold because I walk uprightly. I believe even right now You’re arranging things in my favor.” As you walk and live by faith, you will live a life pleasing to God. You’ll see His blessing and favor in abundance, and you’ll fulfill the destiny He has in store for you!

The next time a man tells me “I’m no good for you”, I will:

1. Listen

2. Believe him

3. Pack my heart up and go

4. Never look back.
