Description

The Black Clergy's Misguided Worship Leadership, This book is an incisive analysis showing why and how the black community's worship of Jesus Christ, Christianity's White male idol, is a subliminal, underlying cause of the high incarceration rates among young Black males. Citing cogent historical, educational, and behavioral reasons, Dr. Bell explains why the worship of the ancient Roman, Constantine- certified, white male idol Jesus Christ is misguided and afflicts black people with a deleterious white superiority syndrome. Dr Bell explains further how such worship spiritually emasculates and socially demeans black manhood and how many young black men intuitively react in ways that lead to high rates of delinquencies, violence, crime, and incarceration. In this book, Dr. Bell petitions the black clergy to stop this misguided worship and start teaching black people a new Christianity that espouses a "Worship only God, the source and sustainer of life" message and honors but does not worship prophet Jesus. Dr. Bell argues that this new Christianity will liberate black people from the damaging psychological effects of their white-male worshipping folkways. He also argues that the new Christianity will end the spiritual emasculation and disrespect imposed on young black men by the old Constantine-certified Christianity and will thus mediate downward the high rates of delinquencies, violence, and incarceration among young black men. Dr. Bell asserts that unless the black clergy takes the actions requested in his petition, black people will forever think of themselves as inferior to white people and many, angry young Black men will continue their plight and plunge toward incarceration.

About Jr. Christopher Bell

Christopher C. Bell, Jr., Ed.D., Major, U.S. Army Retired, is an educationist, poet, novelist, decorated Vietnam War veteran, Unitarian Universalist, and a graduate of Virginia State University (B.S.) and Fitchburg State University (M.Ed.). He earned a Certificate of Advance Graduate Studies (CAS) from Harvard University Graduate School of Education and a Doctor of Education degree (Ed.D.) from Boston University Graduate School of Education. In an earlier book, The Belief Factor and the White Superiority Syndrome, Dr. Bell explained why worship of Jesus Christ, the ancient Roman, white male idol is equivalent to "white-male worshipping" and is psychologically damaging and self-demeaning to non-white people. In this book, The Black Clergy's Misguided Worship Leadership, Dr. Bell petitions black clergy and secular leaders to stop the misguided worship of Jesus Christ and teach black people a new Christianity that espouses a "Worship only God, the source and sustainer of life" message and honors but does not worship Prophet Jesus. Citing cogent historical, educational, and behavioral reasons, Dr. Bell explains why the new Christianity he proposes will minimize black people's white superiority syndrome afflictions, and end the spiritual emasculations imposed on young black men, thus mediating downward their high rates of delinquencies, violence, crime, and incarceration.
