Silly??? Maybe.

This is with no dis-respect to rasta or anyone.

Example: many who make their dreads at the salon, or listen to reggae and smoke herb . Yet when asked about JAH spirit and His will, they fail to give any reason for their beliefs other than the things listed above.

I see this where I live and it seems there are many misconceptions of rasta just as there is with many christians in "today's world". This should be addressed by the rasta believers. Many rasta show their "dislike" for certain Xians yet have no mention of those people who are without any overstanding of rasta and yet portray to the public that they are ras tafari followers.

Any comments?

blessed love to all,
Ini am new to dis site and the continuous use of x's to degrade or judge ones stikes I as odd, when Jah has told all to leave all judgement unto H.I.M. or ones are in danger of being judged in deh same manner. deh honorable Robert Nesta Marley, addressed dis matter over 30 years ago, when asked about imposter Rases, and replied that things of dat nature don't concern him, that was not his mission.
hue-manity has such a monumental task of maintaining our own temples(body/self), that it would be rump-backwards to try and cleanup a next one's transgressions when all have sinned and fallen short of deh glory of Jah. what Ini see is deh need for I-nity(unity) amongst hue-manity because my God & King Haile Selassie I has instructed I to"exploit all areas of agreement" and thas what Ini mus promote in dese times.
Give thanks fi life & Hail H.I.M. in perfectlove
bless

that is one side i suppose. but as far a judging goes but if InI know what RasTa livity is and then see a man wear knots on he head and the man is obviously a fashion dread and proved by he own action to be an imposter than no judgement is neccesary just simple observation.

here in trinidad the fashion dread thing is huge and it disgusts I but what can a man do. a nyabinghi elder and i were reasoning the other night and got well excited picturing in our minds what we called the ras clippers (dreads are called ras over here). for a moment entertaining the idea of a big set of real sharp wooden handled hedge clippers going by certain imposters and i picking up the dreads straight up and the elder giving a swift clip. not somthing that would actually be done but just an expression of a feeling towrds such things.

burning spear sings a song called rasta business addressing the issue as well.

l cant stand the whole fashion dread business, all these people bastardizing that Ras Tafari is. gunman wearing dread, battyman wearing dread, fashion dread, voodoo dread, babylon dread, ect. ect. ect. the overstanding of the purity of RasTa is being lost behind the this muddy flood false rasta.

hey man , you need to remember that dreads are nothing more than a hair style, if you want to get into the nazierean vow , then i must remind you or anyone else that the whole point of the vow was to shave off your hair when you completed the vow(along with not drinking wine or going near dead animals , anything unclean), and once again after Jesus came, those vows were null and void ,since they had to do the the law(also read acts when peter has the vision and is commanded to eat the very animals that someone taking the vow was supposed to stay away from)......there is no other biblical reason for growing dreads(if those were even dreads people grew) so therefore it is just a hairstyle , and mind you, just hair -boomfire

I am also perplexed by the use of X's to "degrade or judge." Chi (X) is the first letter of Xpistos or "Christ." So any Christian should be just as proud to be called a "Xristian" or "Xian" as a Christian. In fact, I would argue that anyone who honors Y'shua Ha Mashiach should be proud to wear his "X."

I never thought about this. Thanks for the input. There is no judgement being made it is an observation. I like what Ras B wrote-----

I guess what I was trying to say(write) is that we need to be "fruit inspectors". And if the fruit stinks, then it is bad. SEEN?

I only use the "X" because I was referring to the x-generation believers (ages 25-35) where I see many who "PLAY" the part of a christian or rasta yet fail to trully examine themselves to see if they are in the faith. And many of these people show non-believers much compromise. Where is JAH faith to move mountains?

I am in no way saying that anyone is above another. I would like to say that observing and truth in not placing judgement. Only JAH can and will judge!

no, no, no!!! Ini will not let you try to delete deh power in deh Rastafarian/nazarite culture. what Jah told to Samson's mama & Yohn deh baptist's mama has not changed from creation until now. deh first man Adam/atom was at deh least a dreadlock because of the absence of barbershops at that time. anyone dat denies that our hair follicles are antennas to deh heavens, have some learning to do. dem teach deh youth that hair is dead as an extension and only alive @ deh root. ask anyone who knotted up and den cut dem how dem felt, if they are truthful dey will say dat a void was left.
in deh creation of man, Jah didn't create any useless parts as deh western world would have you to be"lie"ve, all parts play their role. So its not just hair because that would be that one part is greater than another, when deh I dem know dat every little part meks up deh body of H.I.M.
don't ever forget dat Ini culture produced deh most I-ritical(spiritual) and deh strongest hue-mans creation has ever know across all cultures. in all nations, you will find a subculture dat rejects deh vanity of dis world, does not cut dem wool, rejects animal flesh and uses herbs in praises to Jah. Ini call dem fiyahmen in dis dispensation, so please never disregard or downgrade deh power in something dat Jahimself consecrated to be holy.
finally a general misconception among 1st advent Christians is deh absolvement of deh old testament law. Christ says dat whoever can follow deh 10 comandments will be deh least in Jah's kingdom, the only two laws "He" changed were deh divorce law & the transfer of responsibility from your actions to your heart. after Yeshua walked off into light, the theology took a turn towards Him being deh final blood sacrifice, therefore doing away with any levitical laws requiring deh shedding of blood. deh 10 commandments & other od testament ordinances are deh base for deh laws of Christianity. jes because Immanuel was the fulfillment of deh law in flesh does not mean dat a 1st advent Christian is not held to deh Mosaic directive of thou shall not kill.
