I don't get why everything has to be dreadful. You say God says be dread when the bible say rejoice.

Another thing is God doesn't look at the outward appearance of man:

Quote:
1Sa 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.


The Lord doesn't look at the outside of man, but the inside. So saying "Jah told me to wear dreads" is not infact Jah, but you mind. God doesn't worry about how you look or what style your hair is, but the inside of your heart. I find nothing wrong with wearing the hair in dreads. The look nice, but you don't need dreads to serve God, nor does he say to wear or not to wear dreads. And to think it is bad for man to wear dreads to outreach to rastas is wrong because Paul said in 1Cor 9:19-23 that how i was a Jew when reaching the Jews, and he was as a lawless person (not lawless, but under the law of Christ) to the lawless, and he was weak when preaching to the weak then he say i do it for the gospels sake so they might be saved. If that was true back than, then why wouldn't it apply to us? This should be the only reason for having them, not "because i was told to" or "because there cool" or "because i'm under the nazarian vow". The nazarian vow was for people by birth a nazarian, not someone how is "born again as a nazarian". You might say John the Baptist was under it. But if you say that, your saying your a disiple of John not of Christ. Paul spoke of this when people started to say "i'm of Paul" and "i'm not Apollos". We aren't supose to be serving man, only Christ.

This is NOT about "jews to reach jews" and thing. Paulus never said "become a satanist with the satanists or a pagan with the pagans", he said become a POLE with the POLES. Now, most people who say they have dreads to "reach the rastas" or so clearly state how they feel Rastafari is a false religion and all that. How then, when they have in mind that Rastafari is (like satanism) a false religion, they have to become like the Rastas to reach them? Nobody every thinks a little further other then the very people they try to reach and will not reach because of these things.

This is NOT about hairstyle either. People wearing their hair for the looks go to the barber saloon to buy "let's dred" (yes that is how they call it, not even spelled correctly) and read on the Internet how to grow them and look even cooler. It's sickening. It has nothing to do with JAH DREADS.

Let's talk about being a Dread as created by JAH. You say it's not possible. I say it is. I witness it is.

I wear dreadlocks, not to "reach other dreads". I wear dreadlocks, not because they "look cool". I wear dreadlocks, because I am created by JAH as a dreadlock. It is my identity in Kristos.

Firstly: When the word rasta is used it is refering to people that believe Hallie Sellasie or however you spell his name, is God.

Secondly:

Quote:

That doesn't make sense?? Your a dreadlock???

And if you mean created to wear them, you weren't born with dreadlocks therefor not created to wear them, but at some point you or you, mom, dad, or a friend locked them up for you.

I have nothing against dreads, but you saying other peoples motives are bad is wrong.

No it about what the bible says:

Quote:
1Co 9:19 ¶ For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.


It not you become one, but as one. It says 'as' not 'be'. It more of a appereance before them and how you act around them. Such example is that Paul made Timothy get circumcized so Tim (a greek) would be accepted among the jews:

Quote:
Ac 16:3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.


Why is this important? Because unfortantly somepeople (just like the Jews back than) looked at the outward apperance of men.

Man, learn to read. Then think for a few minutes about what you read.

I AM SAYING THAT YOU CAN NOT BE A SATANIST FOR THE SATANISTS.

Well you can become as one of the satanists for the satanists, but nobody will ever hear of Christ that way because if you are a satanists, you'll never talk about Christ (atleast in any good way).

Right. So Paulus did not say that. But still the ones who say "I wear the dreads because of 'all things to all men'" say it, where they also say that Rastafari is a "false religion". As far as they're concerned, Paulus did write "I became a satanist for the satanists".

So they have a problem. On one hand they have to give their dreads some biblical basis and on the other hand they have to be inline with the christian political correct craze of the day.

When they would really "be a Rasta to reach the Rastas" as they put it, they would then have to admit too that Rastafari is a culture and npot a religion. But they can not do that, for then it would not be impossible for a Rastafarian to be a Christian.

Is this the reason why there seems to be NOBODY AT ALL who sees that PAULUS does NOT refer to other religions but to other CULTURES?

Is this the reason why there seems to be nobody who thinks one inch further and meditates on the consequences of the fact that PAULUS DOES NOT say to BECOME A SATANIST WITH THE SATANISTS?

I think so.

No, because wearing dreadlock's does not mean you are a Rasta. It is an outward association. Not doing anything against the word of God. Christ-Warrior hit it right on when he spoke about Timothy being Circumcised. People who wear dreadlocks as an outward association with Rastas are not becoming Rastas to win Rastas they are meeting them on some form of common ground. Meeting them in their comfort zone. It is the same thing as using patois and reggae music to reach Jamaicans and reggae fans. Associating with them and coming to them in their comfort zone so that for the sake of the gospel they may know the truth.

So then why are they using the scripture that says "become ... to reach ..."?
