As explained in a previous post about Ooni of Ife bowing to a foreign civilization instead of that of Yoruba Civilization which is not an abomination but may introduce a conflict of interest for an Ooni of Ife to ask for guidance (that is pray to Eledumare ALMIGHTY GOD/GOD of heavens and Earth) using any other religious ideologies other than meeting with a BabaAlawo (Ifa Chief Priest) to consult Ifa for Guidance or going to the Shrine. Everything he needs is written in Ifa. All he needs to do is go to the nearest Babaalawo to consult Ifa for guidance or what Ifa says.
There is a huge difference here between western religious ideology Jesus/God and Yoruba Orunmila/God. Also the most high GOD Almighty Olodumare.
In Yoruba civilization, Olodumare ( the GOD of heavens and earth) did not create what he could not control. i.e Satan
The foreign civilization, Jesus and GOD (of heavens and earth ) created Satan which obviously has no control and that is why satan has its followers on earth, meaning those that are doing bad things on earth are regarded as followers of Satan.
It was when the colonial master came, they dis-informed the masses to thinking Esu is the same as Satan. No, there is a big difference between the two. This is where the conflict of interest is. When Ooni claims he bowed down to the same Almighty Olodumare. It’s obviously not the same Olodumare (GOD of heavens and Earth) Orunmila receieved Ifa as guisdance from back in the day.
It is a religious scam or propaganda to equate Satan in the Bible to Esu. The logic played by the colonial master is simple. You have an established model people are used to. Now to sell a new product or ideology to the group of people or race you need to look for something to turn them against what they already have so you can successuly sell or market your own model or type of civilization. This is the trick behind the colonial masters equating Satan in the Bible to Esu in Yoruba mythology. The simple truth is, Esu is not Satan.
