M.N. Masheke: In the Image of God

Excerpts of address to UPF Assembly, New York, New York, September 21, 2007

Even now, criminal cartels are still running Africa. We have people who are dividing nations. When we talk about reconciliation, it means that the country is devastated and needs reconciliation among its people and with God. In Darfur, the Congo, and until recently Angola, which are rich countries, the criminal cartels provide armaments to various warlords. Why are they doing so? They are doing so to further deplete those countries of their resources, because, just as when two dogs are fighting for a bone, the foreign dog that is not fighting will pick up the bone. This is what is happening in Africa. 

God says we are in His image—all of us. Who here can tell me whether God is feminine or masculine? I am a man and am in God’s image. My sister there is in God’s image. All of us are in God’s image. So is He masculine? No. When we are together, I see a Chinese, an African, a Brazilian, a Russian, and a Frenchman. This is an image of a garden that God is looking at—flowers of many colors. When there are many colors in your garden, you see beauty, and there is no discrimination.
