Joseph I, you wrote
(Quoting Ark I)
Joseph I, you are hypocrite, if you were not, you would be Jewish like Yeshua the Christ, not Christian. And you would be following the old testament, not the new. Especially not the parts written by people after Yeshua Christ and even more so, especially not the parts written by those that never knew Yeshua.
All I can do is laugh at the hypocrisy and ignorance of this post.
By your logic, you are a hypocrite as well, if you were not, you would be a Ethiopian Orthodox Christian like Haile Selassie I, not a Rasta.
Second, you must have missed where Selassie himself quotes Paul.
Right after I wrote that post you quoted above, I laughed at the ignorance of the response I expected from you, before you even read I post; because I knew what your response would be. And I had another laugh just now when I saw the expected response.
To correct you, no, there is absolutely no hypocrisy or ignorance in I statement, the ignorance comes from your own misunderstanding.
I wasn't calling Christians hypocrites for being Christians instead of Jews like Yeshua Christ. I think it was a natural progression.
I was calling you a hypocrite, not Christians in general. That being said, I suspect that a large amount of Christians would be just as hypocritical a you.
To explain, you call yourself Christian, see Christ as your God (and/or son of God, not sure of your exact stance) and follow the new testament, even though Yeshua Christ was a Jew. And just as you commented that Haile Selassie I quoted Paul, Yeshua Christ quoted the old testament.
What I wrote in the last paragraph is not what makes you a hypocrite.
What makes you a hypocrite--is when RasTafarI people come and either discard the Bible or refuse what they see as unjust, and come with other Heights--you criticize them for not following every word of the Bible and not treating the Bible as their infallible God.
You think it is okay for Christians to come with something different than the Jews, but it is not okay for RasTafarI people to come with something different than the Christians. Again, that is what makes you a hypocrite.
And I suspect your opinion about I and I saying Haile Selassie I is God, is just as hypocritical.
And just as Yeshua Christ spoke against the wickedness of the synagogue leaders. Haile Selassie I, being the King of Kings, did more than just speak, He made changes and tried to make additional changes (that were not accepted) to eliminate the corruption of the Orthodox Church. And some in the church were against him for that. This is not just my words, but is a fact that can be researched.
