There are no shadows. We told what would be deleted, and asked you to change what you would post in the future. We have been very open about it and have been extremely patient. I am sure that you have been contacted by all of the Moderators, and have been asked to tone things down. It is not much to ask.

BLESS!!


What are you then saying? The bible is not the absolute authority (I believe this, but Christ His Spirit is the final authority) and that people have gotten away from worshiping the one true God??

This is true, though, there is only one way to HIM. Now, I can't make you believe that and I am not aiming too, but that is the truth. You probably disagree, and I can't judge that.

At anyrate, dude, you still haven't answered MY questions man!!!!

This is where I learned a lot about Rasta, from the question in the FAQ about "was Bob Marley a Christian???

Question:

Was Bob Marley a Christian? I heard a rumor that he accepted Christ before he died. Is this true?

Answer:

Bob Marley is infamous for being reggae music's ambassador to the world. He was raised in the Christian church but strayed away as a youth. He dove into Rastafarianism and his career exploded as he toured around the nation preaching the beliefs of Rastafari.

It is also a well known fact in Jamaica that Bob Marley became born again 7 months before he died of cancer. Regarding this conversion, I quote two sources.

[b]Arch Bishop Yesehaq head of the Kingston chapter of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Jamaica was initially sent to Jamaica by His Majesty to establish the church and to dispel the worship of Selassie. Selassie felt that if he personally commissioned someone to start a church that worshipped Christ and not himself, the Rastafarians would follow the true Christ.[/b] It was these reasonings and many others that eventually brought Bob Marley to be baptized into the Ethiopian Orthodox church by Arch Bishop Yesehaq. This conversion is well documented in Jamaica and was strongly criticized by many Rastas. In Yesehaq's interview with Ian Boyne on JBC's "Profile" (Jamaica's most popular talk show), he discusses this matter in great detail, explaining Bob's conversion as one whole hour of weeping sobbing and tears of repentance. Another confirmation of this fact is the following: If it was not for his denouncing Selassie as God, his conversion and baptism into the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and acceptance of their belief system, his funeral would have never taken place in their church. For the Ethiopian Orthodox Church does not hold any ceremonies (including funerals) for non-members.

To further back up this fact is the testimony of Judy Mowatt. She was one of the famous "I-Threes," and a strong Rastafarian. Judy was initially disturbed by Bob's commitment to accept the doctrine of the Ethiopian Orthodox church and be baptized into their body. She and others were frustrated with Bob for forsaking all that he had stood for in his music and mission for so many years. However, almost twenty years later Judy Mowatt completely understands the commitment that Bob had made. For just a few years ago as documented in Reggae Report vol 14#6, Judy Mowatt became what she calls a "fulfilled Rasta," by becoming a born again Christian. She believes that Selassie was a very godly man, but was not God. This belief was backed by two recordings that she possesses that are interviews with Selassie in which he discusses the fact that Rastafarians follow him, yet he clearly denies being God/Christ. A portion of each of these recordings is featured on Christafari's "Why You Ago Look" (WordSound&Power) and the dub version of the same song (Dub Sound&Power) and has led to the conversions of many more Rasta.

Regrettably Bob was not able to leave us any post conversion recordings, but he did give us some great music and a powerful spiritual legacy with his last minute transformation. And he is probably singing a true redemption song in Heaven right now!


The section in italics explains that Sallassie himself did not want to be worshiped by Rastas, but wanted people to focus on Christ Jesus. This is where I got the info about Rasta's worshiping Sallassie.

Definitions of Rasta as written in the Lion of Zion-FAQ area are subject of discussion. The definitions are not covering the complete movement of Rastafari, but only a part. This is also admitted. It's "just" unchanged for the last few years....
