|All my life I've grown up in the
church from when I was born to about 7 or so, I was Baptist. From
then on to about a year ago I was Non-Denominational[the
denomination, that isn't realy one. O_o]. from about a year ago to
now I've simple called myself a Christian, or Follower of Christ.
But then I started to take to the name Christafarian, not realy
because I'm a "Christian" who wants to be a "RasTa".
takeing on the identity of Christafarian, because of it's meening of
Bearer of Christ, or Soldier of Christ. And because I've found
myself not wanting todays "Christianity", as a whole alot of it
This past year, I haven't found much comfort/solace
as being a "Christian" or in so much of what I see has taken over
Christianity today. I haven't felt Jah say "this is who you be
_____". So I guess this has all been a bit out of my own reasoning
and thought, which I don't find bad...just, hell, I don't even know
the word or phrase for it. I guess I've just felt a little like a
wanderer. With the only knowledge is that I have I Jah.
I don't even know why I'm writing this for certain. I know some who
read this are prolly thinking "why is this guy so messed up over a
name", and yeah I see it. But to me right now, I feel it's more of
where I am in the body of Christ. I don't feel to shun off the
church I attend, or Christianity in general. But I just don't feel
to close to it.
And in some ways it feels good to be by myself
in this, with Jah. I guess in these past months I've felt in the
state of being in christianity, yet truely being outside it.
I started this post out to ask what you guys thought of someone
useing the name/idenity Christafarian. And I still wonder you're
But I think in the process, I've come to a better
overstanding of what I am, and where I am.
..In Jah alone...
so yeah, I'm going to go ahead and post this. because I see
no reason not to.
Shalom, and Blessings.
