ABOUT THE COMPILERS
I shared a blog TRADITIONAL COLUMBUS DAY POEM – REIMAGINED, on September 4, 2020 at 10:26pm: https://praynetwork.ning.com/profiles/blogs/traditional-columbus-da...
Today you sent an E-mail calling for us to pray with Jesus from a Biblical Perspective Toward Racial Healing. How can we pray without confessing and repenting our perversion of Jesus’ teaching?
Maybe we should first consider something that should not be Re-imagined…
UNREPENTANT PRAYERS, DON'T BOTHER!
Organized churches of “men” must confess and repent.
Papal Bull Dum Diverersas - 18 June 1452
Pope Nicholas V issued the papal bull Dum Diversas on 18 June, 1452. It authorized Alfonso V of Portugal to reduce any “Saracens (Muslims) and pagans and any other unbelievers” to perpetual slavery. This facilitated the Portuguese slave trade from West Africa.
The Bull Romanus Pontiflex (Nicholas V) - 5 January 1455
The same pope wrote the bull Romanus Pontifex on January 5, 1455 to the same Alfonso. As a follow-up to the Dum Diversas, it extended to the Catholic nations of Europe dominion over discovered lands during the Age of Discovery.
The Bull Inter Caetera (Alexander VI) - 4 May 1493
In 1493 Alexander VI issued the bull Inter Caetera stating one Christian nation did not have the right to establish dominion over lands previously dominated by another Christian nation, thus establishing the Law of Nations.
Together, the Dum Diversas, the Romanus Pontifex and the Inter Caetera came to serve as the basis and justification for the Doctrine of Discovery, the global slave trade of the 15th and 16th centuries, and the Age of Imperialism.
