Part of The Umbanda (African) Religion, which combined Yoruban and Christianity  - ''Obatala'' the personification for Jesus Christ. Known as The ‘’Sky Father’’, He was seen as ‘’giving’’ Humans Their ‘’physical form’’ (bodies) and ‘’spiritual essence’’ (Soul). Obatala is The Supreme Being and Overseer of all other ‘’Orisha’’ (Spiritual Entities). These can be perceived as both Natural and otherwise. Both concepts of ‘’Good and Evil’’ are likewise governed by Obatala. Unlike the traditional European views of Christ, The Umbanda Religion assigns a more humanist view. Obatala is ‘’married’’ or has over 200 ‘’spiritual consorts’’. He can likewise make His presence known thru physical possession of Human bodies.
