I was just thinking: in the strict meaning of the words, the teachings of rastafari should be the teachings of ras tafari, of haile selassie. His teachings were ethiopian orthodox.
Now, what many people today think about when they hear rastafari, they often think of something else than the real teachings of his majesty. So could we say that what the movement of rastafarians made of their teachings, in a sense is not really the teaching of ras tafari?

The Rastafarian movment has roots going back before the coronation of H.I.M. Haile Selassie. The colonial history of Jamaica and the African repatriation movment were big factors in the development of Rastafari long before they were "Rastafari." Rasta beliefs about Selassie were an "addition" to an already existing movment.

You might do well to read some histories of Rastafarianism --there are many to choose from.

What you call it will not change its continuity: what is now called "Rastafari" has been evolving over a long period of time, even before Selassie. Earlier the movement looked for the advent of a "black" king, and later it found one. The movement began to be called "Rastafari" after the coronation of H.I.M. Haile Selassie I, who became a key (if not the central!) figure of the religion.

I guess Rastas would probably say that the implicit expectation of Emperor Selassie, even before his coronation "advent," could justify calling the pre-Selassie movement "Rastafari" too. He was already the key figure, so to speak, and only his name was unknown. But that's just a guess. You should ask Rastas.

I would guess they're probably not yet answering your questions because it looks like you could be baiting someone for an argument rather than simply asking questions for information.

Blessup in H.I.M.
bredrens & sistrens,
Ini personal overstanding is dat Emmanuel deh Christ did not com forth to start a new way of worshipping Jah or a new religion/division. Paul is deh one who came forth with a totally new faith, because if deh I dem really followed Emmanuel, den deh I dem would all be of the orthodox judiastic faith practicing rituals in deh manner dat Emmanuel did. Emmanuel in flesh was a nazarite which meks deh consumption of a grape juice product undrinkable, if deh I dem assume dat he kept him covenant fi life.
Ini always ask first advent christians was Emmanuel a christian in deh flesh, and never can get an answer? Ini cite up Yeshua/Emmanuel deh Christ as the fulfillment of deh Mosaic Law just as Haile Selassie is deh fulfillment of deh 1st advent Christian laws/duties(this is different because deh I dem have grace now). final questions for 1st advent christians in love and humility, where does a man of the flesh of King David's loins, who vanished from the throne of David, whom has hair like wool and skin of burnt brass, carrying all three of Christ's returned titles and has been trini-crowned as in the power of his new name, lastly being the head of deh Ark of deh covenant of Jah fit into your doctrines? if deh I dem say he was just a man and all those are coincidental, please reference St.John 8:12/9:5 and tell me who is a liar? Rases or Haile Selassie I?
feel no way Jah children, iz just food for learning!
Hail H.I.M. in perfectlove
