Visiting Hawaii’s Tragic & Remote Leprosy Colony
The Evil Twisted Legacy of Euro-Centric Christianity
What European Christians meant for evil the afflicted Native Hawaiian peoples took, built community showing a deeper understanding of Jesus Christ and True Christianity. Europeans introduced Leprosy to Native Hawaiians, at that point criminalizing the disease, then shipped them off to a Leper colony with little food, clothes or resources. Separated from their families and Left to die they pooled and cultivated what little they had to support and uplift each other.
Hansen’s Disease aka Leprosy
Matthew 8 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Heals a Man With Leprosy
8 When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. 2 A man with leprosy[a] came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
3 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
