God Is A PIMP – Mayday Message From Rylan Branch
May Day, May Day!
For whatever reason, after thinking about things on an in depth level in regards to where things are, and need to go, I felt inspired to write this post.
Telling it exactly like it is from my perspective, I have grown tired of individuals insecurities about a few different subjects, including the word PIMP, and often wonder why the word, when combined with an image of an African American male tends to trigger so much fear and disdain from individuals who see things in a certain way, so my resolution is simply to take it to a higher authority on the subject and see where it leads for each and all.
My Stance –
In the western world, much of the popular belief about God and the concept of God as well as all of the people places, and things that follow come from the good book known as The Bible.
It like any book or story has a beginning and end point, and as a writer, I always feel it best to begin at the very beginning of the story to get a clear idea of how things will subsequently follow, or stated other wise, I look at the cause which leads to the effects.
1 First God made heaven & earthÂ 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.Â 3 And God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
Keeping things simple, as I prefer them to be, right off the top, literally, I notice a pattern for the beginning of the chapter, which is the beginning of this book and story, and that pattern is as follows.
God Says = It Is
In my honest opinion, that would indicate that all that exists in the form of created effects, reflects the cause which is some conversation from God, which would clarify the facts for those who follow this belief system, that God built everything that is with some words out of his mouth, which in my opinion, qualifies as the original and greatest status of existence, which is that word and associated attributes known as PIMP.
Since I have some time on my hands, which is one of the effects of that original conversation, I can look at something it the script that relates to this fact.
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.
This is a subject that has haunted religious scholars for ages, yet again, keeping things simple as a preference, with this tool of communication known as the Internet, anyone using it would bost likeley be able to comprehend the concept of an image, as you may very well have a gallery full of them in a location here in cyberspace. Likeness should be as easy to ascertain, as it is the popular buzz word floating used to describe your preferences.
The mystery seems to be in regards to who it was that God was speaking to when it comes to the creation of humans, yet if I had to put it together, myself as a father have said something to that same effect to the mother of my children, and exist to type this entry as a result of my father having a similar conversation with my mother, and if I had to put together what it is that God looks like, I could simply look at an image of myself, and notice some features that I find useful, including but not limited to a mouth on my face to say things with, fingers on my hand to write or type things with, and eyes and ears on that same head to observe the effects with, and follow the same example of creating things with the use of speech, similar to how God in the very beginning used his tools to create all that exists, including myself, as a representative or perhaps an Avatar of God, representing the status known as PIMP, who uses conversation to create that which is.
Since this is the beginning of a new month, the last month hosted holidays of the highest order regarding both Judaism (Passover), and one its off shoots known as Christianity (Easter).
Interestingly enough, while watching television in April 2010, I was able to see many shows that ventured into the subject of historical accuracy regarding these stories, with some emphasizing the popular an on going debate regarding the physical characteristic and ethnic origins of the figure known as Jesus Christ and other prolific figures related to him in The Bible.
Keeping it simple as usual, what we can know, based on what is readially availavle in regards to information is that the story is actually attributed to Moses, who wrote the first five books of The Bible, including the one that started it all known as Genesis. We can then see two simple details that may give greater insight into the matter, which are as follows.
A. Moses was born and raised in East Africa.
B. Moses was an author and speaker.
With those two minor details, with the way that my mind works, I can simply use them to add value to myself as an African American author and speaker and see where it leads too, similar to what the current President of the U.S.A. has done, which interestingly enough reflect the details of the story in whichÂ his own
biological father was born and raised in the exact same region that is spoken of in The Bible,and where both his name and game come from.
Genesis 2:13: And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
In closing, in regards to the controversial deceleration of the status of
God being PIMP, my stance is that if the statement of the image and likeness of God was used as the model of creation for mankind, as hard as it may be for some to digest, I believe that any individual who is internally dissatisfied with their own image is sending a message out to their creators that they believe that their parents and farthest forefathers (creators) produced poor quality product, and while they may not necessarily agree, their own believe in that area may eventually show up as their names and images placed on a list of rejects that are to be done away with for quality assurances purposes.
Call it what you will, yet I call it how I see it, which again, is from the perspective of a PIMP, following orders from those who came before me.
What you fear will appear!
A different perspective to consider.
