Greetings Brethren:


God has ordained healing through Priests and Doctors. The presence of God in healing has a distinct Biblical history. However the power to heal belongs to God and not man. God has given man the ability to seek new measures of healing. However, man must be careful not to tread on God's territory of Creation. Cloning and Abortions are not of God.

Peace and Love,

Carl Patton writing for the FreedomJournal February 6, 2002 in the year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.







In the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.


The Egyptians distinctly influenced the Greeks in all areas of knowledge. Healing and medicine was not an exception. The ancient Greeks identified Imhotep with their later god of healing Aeschepious. Aeschepious was the legendary Greek physician and god of medicine. He was the son of Apollo and Coronis.


For the record the Mediterranean world made the greatest contributions to the foundations of human knowledge. The principal regions for these contributions are noted in Egypt (NorthEast Africa), North Africa in Carthage (now Libya), Rome, Italy, and Athens Greece. Meanwhile, in early Christian Rome, Imhotep was identified with Jesus. However Jesus replaced Imhotep, who was always represented as Black.


For the record the racial image of Jesus the Messiah and all of the Prophets and Apostles should be removed. According to the inspired word of God it is forbidden. All images of God, Jesus Christ, the Prophets and the Apostles should be removed because of the European attitude (many Europeans not all) in regard to White Supremacy. Racism born out of economic greed and not economic need brought corruption to Christianity. This philosophy of hatred and greed also laid the foundations for Economic/Racism. The racial image of Christ etc. is a divisive force in the Church and all of humankind. We say this in regard to the White Supremacists and also the Black Supremacists that also opt for a racial image of Christ.


However there is a historical record of the complexion of Christ noted in the following:

"Jesus, the divine healer, does not retain the black complexion of Imhotep in the canonical Gospels, but he does in the Church of Rome when represented by the little black bambino. A jeweled image of the child-Christ as a blackamoor is sacredly preserved at the headquarters of the Franciscan order . . . to visit the sick, and demonstrate the supposed healing power of the Egyptian Aesculapius thus Christianized." (See African Journal Civilization p. 29. Primary source Massey, B., Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World, N.Y., Samuel Weiser, 1973, Vol. 2, p. 754).


Writing also has had a great impact on the history of medicine. There is ample evidence that notes that the art of medicine developed first in Africa and coincides with the first development of writing.  The Egyptians contributed the world’s first medical knowledge and literature.


Hippocrates although he does not make a direct reference to the Egyptians confirm the contributions of the Egyptians. He argues that the first medical knowledge was dietetics. (See Journal African Civilization p. 31. Primary source Hippocrates, Adams F. (Trans.). In Great Books of the Western World Chicago, Encyclopedia. Britannica, 1952, pp. 1, 2).


During the time of ancient Egypt dietetics was a major part of Egyptian medicine; The Greeks also had this knowledge and knew of Egyptian precedents for dietetics. "Herodotus (450 BC) writes that the Egyptians have a persuasion that every disease to which men are liable is occasioned by the substances whereon they feed." (Herodotus: The Histories, Rawlinson G. (Trans). In Great Books of the Western World, Chicago, Encyclopedia Britannica, 1952, pp. 49, 50, 60-65, 69, 70).


Meanwhile Hippocrates declares that dieteitics and/or Egyptian medicine was the first medical knowledge, Galen (200 AD) a student of Hippocrates writes, "the invention of medicine was the experience of the Egyptians." (Luth, V., Imhotep order Asklepios: on the beginning of scientific medicine in Egypt and Greece. Hippocrates 34: 826-827, 1963).


While Egypt produced the earliest physicians, medical knowledge and literature, there is also a third contribution. The Egyptians greatly influenced Greek medicine. We find that Egyptian arts and sciences influenced the development of Greek arts and sciences.


Many of the well-known Greek philosophers and scientists went to Egypt to be educated. These included Thales (600 BC) Solon (575 BC), Pythagorus (550 BC), Plato (375 BC), Eudoxus of Cnidus (360 BC) and others." p. 34.
