You don't like how they create something to fit in with other people but some don't hold Jah in their heart. I see what you're saying.
You know, I have a tradition where I replay the facts and put them in a positive order. I overstand what the I find troubling about what is going on, but hear the positive slant of it:
These people who you are talking about, they do not know rastafari tradition originally in the sense that they do not follow those teachings. But they see a lot about rastafari that they like, so they try to fit everything together in a way. So they are like a tree that you put indoors next to a window, and the tree will grow and start leaning towards the window. They are seeking the light because it is their nature, but they don't realize that outside is the place to be.
But trust me, people with love in their heart will always reach out to Jah and Jah will take them in. Maybe they do not see the original tradition in its fullness but at least they are reaching out in love and taking what they can from the teachings.
And now the Christ part, it is not something false. So that mean it is actually rastafari, just not using that name. If they make some mistakes along the way in seeking the full tradition of teaching, what is that? That is no big deal. The main thing is that they are guided by love and seeking groundation in truth. And that is what life is all about no matter what you call it.
My basic thing in life is that everybody is guided by love. If they cannot see what you see then that doesn't make them bad or evil. They are just limited. And it is nothing shameful to be limited, because limitation is one of the aspects of creation.
About the name: Gideon signifies the final trumpet sound that sends the enemy into chaos and confusion. All false teachings are destroyed and only the truth can stand when the trumpet sounds.
The message I have is that what is is, what is not, is not, and only what is is, and what is is only what it is and what is is not what it is not. All true teachings can abide by that rule, and all false teachings crumble by the same rule. Seen? it is the basis of the true church - word, sound and power. Power is truth and wordsound is a representation of the truth. So true words obey the rule. False words cannot abide the rule.
