Some so called Christians are ignorant, believe me on that one. But ignorance can come from anyone, ignorance is bliss.

Greetings to all!

I am a Newbie in this forum. I registered because I heard of Christafari before but in a not so friendly way from some RasTas.

First of all, I must apologize for my lack of words or bad grammar since I am from Germany and really out of training referring to the English language. But I am working on it as a member in some other forums, too.

So, where to start? I decided to post here since I take part in a current discussion on a german RasTa board ( @ Messian Dread: You know that forum as well ). Of course, it is about Christafari. A few months ago, I 've been a very active member in that forum but when it came to more and more ignorance and some kind of snootiness ( because of being RasTa and therefore wiser than other believers) I decided to stop further posting.

I do not see any use in being intolerant. Why all this bossiness ( on both sides refferring to RasTa vs Christa), why all this attempts to win somebody over to your own religion/ confession? A friendly and constructive interchange of ideas would be more successfull.

But back to my POV and/or confusion. I am christened and I celebrated confirmation, too. When I questioned the teachings I came to RasTa. I have to admit that I am still at the beginnings of my RasTs studies. But there are already some points I do not agree with. So you can say, I believe in a black or brown Yesus ( as described in the bible) and I try to fulfill the rasta livity - kind of ital food, love/peace/unity, meditation ( don't need ganja for it but don't condemn others using it as well) etc.-. But I do not agree to the Six Holy Truths for example. But I read and learn from the bible and scripts like the Qumran Rolls.

I think, Messian Dread verbalized it very apposite in his itation "Introducing Messian Dread".

So, what now. Here I am, mixing up RasTa and Christianity when searching fo rthe truths. So where do I belong to? Do I have to say 100% YES to RasTa or 100% YES to Christianity? Do I have to read all the RasTa-Teachings and all the Christianity-Teachings to read between the lines and find my truth?

At the moment, there seem to be so much wolves inna sheep clothing and fundamentalists and fanatics. With whom can I discuss without being crusaded?

Need something for lunch now...

Blessings!
JW

I tried to begin something like this, in response to a call from Aaronjudah, in the thread called defining Rastafari. Too few people contributed and the thread was not sustained. Perhaps you would like to contribute now, and other Rastas might consider the same?

Thanks @ all for the warm welcome!

@ JonaGus: Thanks for posting the link to 'definig RasTafari'.
I am looking forward to read it. But it will take some time since it is much to read and think about.

Jah guidance + protection!

PS: I use 'JAH' for God....seems to be a need to tell these days...

Hihihi, yes I do. It's that forum where they thought I was some kind of secret agent for christafari and where I had to explain that I was giving Christafari a harder time then I gave them (the so called rastas).

I'm sure you have allready seen how that was not a lie
