You should try to verify what you say before you quote from the scriptures
Your knowledge MUST surpass that of the scribes and the pharisees.
What Christ said is,
For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
As far as I Iverstand, Elijah reads the scriptures. And I Iverstand what he is saying when he says he is RasTafarI and not Christian or Israelite.
When a person says they are RasTafarI, it is because they follow the ways of RasTafarI, so they learn the way to Live by the words that RasTafarI tells I and I and by the example RasTafarI set for I and I. And as Selassie I reads the scriptures and learns from them, I and I also read and learn.
The ways of Jah has never changed. People were shown the way to live in the beginning of Creation. Christ came and told them of the original ways because they went away from Jah ways. So the Ones that learned from Christ called themselves Christian instead of Jews, because the ways of the Jews were not the same as Christ. So the Christians formed their churches based on teachings of Christ. And in present times, the ways of the Christians are not the ways of Selassie I. So I and I follow the original way shown by RasTafarI and also seen in the scriptures. So I and I call ourselves RasTafarI instead of Christian. And I and I trod with the church of RasTafarI Haile Selassie I
RasTafarI made changes to fix the corruption in the church. The church had to change their ways and trod by Haile Selassie I direction, Selassie I directed them in truth and rights. But the people have chosen to trod their own way and so have the churches. I and I look at the principles and teachings of Selassie I and learn from them.
Elijah may be a youth, but his words and thoughts are higher than many who are men. And I have never treated him like a kid because he hasn't acted like a kid. A man must behave like an Elder if they are to be looked at as an Elder. And those that want to be looked at as an Elder are not behaving like an Elder.
And Empress1 gave some good advice and you disrespected her by saying:
Firts of all I would like to say to the sister "If you can't take the heat ~ stay out of the kitchen !"
You say this when she brought the hottest Fire here with Truth. You should have learned from her words instead of disrespecting her.
Get off your high horse bredren, your head might swell too much.
Haile Selassie I
