GARVEYS AFRICA, I thank the I. The last post ties into Ark I's response to the original topic post. Bringing I closer to overstanding how ones can connect to JAH without guidance from The Bible.
Let I start by saying that When I posted 'No human culture's exist before The Word.' I mean The Word as the beginning. The "Let there Be".. 'The Uni-verse speak All into creation.' This is the best way IandI mind can conjure the beginning. JAH being, always, then willing a living construct and children into being.. I say, nothing of Humanity could have existed before JAH create it.. 'This Word[Let there be] has been correctly recorded in The Bible. Correct enough that JAH H.I.M Self support it, eternally.' IandI do not have direct cultural links to pre-Bible ancient African traditions. I can only look from the out-side-in, using The Bible to give I a glimpse of what transpired. The major reason I hold The Bible as truth is because Haile Selassie does. Who am I to deny such knowledge and wisdom?
'So show me or tell me and make I overs how the San people from now to espeicially 20,000 years ago lived according to the doctrine of the Word instead of something divinely inherently and supremely their OWN.' -- I cite JAH's creation as the systemic anomaly. Both the beginning and end in the same moment. All is designed, All is seen, All is known; for The Source[JAH] moves and sustains every aspect of existence by metaphysically experiencing it within us.. These ancient people lived by the doctrine of the Word[Let there be] in that their very existence is doing exactly what they need to. Setting up the foundation for the rest of Human existence.. This is not 'instead of' but coinciding with what is divinely, inherently, and supremely their OWN. Living The Word, not yet detached to the point of a document needing to redirect people to JAH..
I see The Bible as quite literal in some aspects.. Revelation 5 literally points to the coming of The Conquering Lion of The Tribe of Judah. Yet at the same time, The Bible is metaphoric, 40 days 40 nights.. I use The Bible as a tool to help I know what has been inside all along.. I couldn't have known what I know now if not for guidance from The Bible.. I have been born and raised in the middle of the babylon system.. Kansas.. Most of I life has been a path away from JAH. Indoctrinated at such an early age I knew no better, yet JAH call I out of this path. Inspiring I to look to The Bible with a fresh perspective. It has immensely helped to grow I..
I have created this topic thread in order to gain perspective on particularly themed verses that have troubled I.. Again, when I reach an idea that I don't readily comprehend, I tend to hold The Bible higher than I view point.. I also look to those who have more knowledge than I.. i.e Rastafarisabbathical.. A black man holding truth in Jeremiah 5.. This is not a perspective that I personally out-right hold, I do not know enough about it to say one way or the other so I lean towards The Bible. What The Bible insinuates in the highlighted verses is that a covenant was broken, thus allowing a chance for strangers[White slave owners] to commit atrocities, which they took FULL advantage of and damned themselves in the process.. A duality, Karma..
I see Haile Selassie I as JAH. THE Father of ALL creation.. So when HE speak, to I, it is the Word of JAH. Then when HE promotes The Bible, I too cite that as HIS Word.
I appreciate all that has been shared with I as this topic post could seem VERY offensive. I only wanted to ask questions and explain IandI perspective. I thank the I's for allowing I to do this.
