I thought that this was an interesting discussion that I came across. As a point of clarification, I am not Ras Aaron. That is another person blessed with the same powerful name

http://groups.msn.com/twelvetribesliveup/general.msnw?action=get_message&mview=0&ID_Message=13339&DDir=1

This gentleman is commenting on an email response into his inquiries about Mohr's statements concerning RasTafari that possess faith in the Messiah. Mohr states that they are "one in a million." Where does this leave Ras B? Where does this leave me and others @ the Twelve Tribes Live Up site? Where does this leave thousands of members of TTOI?

Perhaps Mr. Mohr needs more research into RasTafari.


Quote:
Greetings to all in the name of Yeshuah!

This may be one Important topic, and InI think we should all do our best to let it be known. I recently got a magazine from an Assembly of God Pentecostal Church that had an article/interview with Christafari's Mark Mohr, and InI also recently got an e-mail from Lion Of Zion etertainment which is Christafari's Recording Label. Anyway both had something about Rastafari in them, the magazine which is called OnCourse, said some things trashing the Rasatafarian Faith, it wasnt a big section but it shouldnt have been there without Mark doing some research first, the e-mail I recieved recently had a statement by more that said "And God saved the best show for last, for it was in Amsterdam where even rastas held up their hands after the sinners prayer!" Anyway I took it upon I to send him an e-mail at the Lion Of Zion web site http://www.lionofzion.com/ (F.A.Q., contact us) to tell him that as a Rasta of the 12 Tribes of Israel origin that InI and most others that InI know/reason with do believe in Christ and not as Selassie but as Christ himself and explained that he should know these things before he says that kind of thing to anyone. I got a response from him that stated:
"Ras, forgive me for misrepresenting your faith. You are one of a million rastas that I have met that does not worship Haile Selassie as God or Christ. Respect. When I referred to Rastas, I was speaking of those who follow AND worship Rastafari.
Mark Mohr"
InI have Raspect for that man to send me this e-mail, but if he believe that(That InI am 1 in a million) then InI need to do something because what InI believe is being distorted and falsified. Anyway InI urge all to spread the knowledge of our faith in anyway we can so that the truth be known. Much Love and Raspect!!

OneLove,

Ras Aaron



Maybe someone could verify this information or statement for me.

Did you read closely the quote by Mark in the quote that you gave? He said that it was out of the ones that Mark has met, and that he had respect for the faith of the one that sent him the email.

Actually, it looks like Mohr said "one of a million": "You are one of a million rastas that I have met that does not worship Haile Selassie as God or Christ." If that's what he said, it means he's met at least a million Rastas who do not believe Emperor Haile Selassie is God. And if he's really met a million Rastas who do not believe Selassie is Jah, then why would he make the FAQ sound like they all did?

In this modern age of internet, books, multimedia, etc. there is no excuse for his uninformed stance on this subject. Like I said elsewhere, Ras B has become the punching bag. If at any time Mark lacks some information about RasTafari believers in Messiah, call Ras B. They work on the same ministry for crying out loud. Do they talk/communicate with one another? Surely they do. Again, Mark is without excuse. He's in CA. Go down to the 12 Tribes HQ and reason. Get on line and reason. Dread Jesus. Karl Naphtali's book. Ethiopia the Bible and RasTafari, by Lance Suriname. http://www.onedropbooks.com/

He is without excuse.

You are seriously stating Mark met millions of Rastas?

Ofcourse that is not the case.

As I say repeatly, the definition of Rasta according to LOZ is still utilized as driving force behind the philosophy that we come to know as Christafarianism.

I didn't say that he has met millions. You have ignored the quote that you added to your message.

It is entirely obvious that the word millions in this statement is a figure of speach. Strain at the gnats.

For a person that has toured much of the world it is not likely that he has not met thousands of Rasta. 15 trips to Jamaica, living in Trinidad, and making tours through out the US and and Canada and Europe. I can safely say that he has met a few Rastas... so you are set fully on the figure of speach to to prove him wrong? You should run for President of the US. You have a great campaign going....

I know that LOZ denies the faith of people like me (because they say people like me are deceivers) and that one of their arguments is that people like me are "one in a million" so people like me can be ignored as they do not form a suitable position for the justification of the activities of LOZ.

Not I, but Mark Mohr should run for president. For he is only interested in the majorities.

Or what he perceives as majority.

But the actual letter says "one of a million," not "one in a million." And that means something very different.
