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".
I started 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 bothers me.
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.
Anyhow, 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.
And I started this post out to ask what you guys thought of someone useing the name/idenity Christafarian. And I still wonder you're thoughts.
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.
- Joshua

Bro,

I do understand some of what you are talking about. Most folks I know think that the music I am into couldn't even be Christian. I also see the current state of Modern Christianity. I am in it for Christ though. When I see the massive errors going on, I am reminded that I am called to be a light. You don't do that by getting out. You just shine. Do what you are supposed to do and help motivate others to do right too. God could use that to start a huge revival of real true Christianity.

Blessins
